According to TVS Motor Company, the limited-run Apache RTR 165 RP launched just over a week ago in India has just sold out.

The entire 200 units sold out in just a few days thanks to the sale process that was done entirely online.

The RTR 165 RP makes 19hp @ 10,000rpm and 14.2Nm @ 8,750rpm and power is delivered to the back wheel via a 5-speed super-slick transmission.

The RP is not just a nameplate, to ensure the best performance in its segment, the RTR 165 RP gets a new cylinder head with a 35 per cent increase in intake. The engine also gets a 15 per cent bigger valve controlled by Hi-Lift Hi-Duration cams and dual spring actuators for increased performance.

TVS also revised the bore stroke ratio of 1.37, to allow free-revving up the redline.

Considering the success of the RTR 165 RP, TVS will spawn more RP series in the near future.
