    I'm feel terribly sorry for them. Plz bear with TVS. They must have named it as Sticker edge!

      RTR 160/RD removed from product portfolio

      Did anyone notice that the TVS website has removed the RTR 160/RD from product portfolio?? !!

      The RTR 160 FI is still there on the list though...guess they are phasing out the normal 160 and selling off the remaining stock with the 'HYPEREDGE' stickering..

                  seems like the 160 RD(rear disc) model is discontinued

                    apart from cosmetic changes the words "more refinement" means nothing as that is the baseline whenever a company comes with a sticker upgrade.....

                    are the improved tyres the ones which were being developed by tvs around one month back??

                      Not really, you should see the RTR v1, v2 and the RTR RD... They had a lot of small internal changes... infact rev up the RTRv1 and a RTR v2 or RD or current RTR... the exhaust humm is so different in these bikes!!

                      Open up the engine and you will see small tidbits which makes a lot of sense, like a different alloy screw and bolt...a small change in design and so on!!!
                      Ofcourse they cant be advertised, but then if TVS never advertised these changes earlier and are doing so now, I am more than keen to know what all changed!

                      This is what Manan had written about the bike...
                      "But I must say this bike has come up ...with some great technological upgrades to meet the new emission norms and better grunt with more usable power and torque....It's a fun toy to ride...it has been always a pocket rocket and this time with lesser vibes and better refinement"
                      So I guess it makes sense waiting for the detailed log...

                      PS: You are quoting from someone who just speculated...
                      PPS: Its a 160 upgrade and the old 160 would be phased out now...

                        +100 to satyen

                        Do u guys know how many changes RTR had during these years? I know coz almost half these changes went into my bike which is why even after 57k kms of absolute ri(a)ping....it still kicks ass!

                        alloys were upgraded thrice(for better braking), one way clutch too, throttle cable, cam shafts, suspensions, bar end weights, silencer, lights, cylinder head etc.....as satyen said ride them to beleive it

                          Exactly.It was the same case with the A150 too, there was quite a difference between Feb'06 manufactured A150s(initial batches) and the post-Nov'06 models. Throttle response and the engine grunt was quite different and were a major improvement over the initial models. And very few people knew about it as TVS never advertised it.

                          About the Hyperedge we are yet to get official technical specs but i am sure TVS wont share it as they would like to keep it to themselves and let the bike do the talking. If Manan's review is anything to go by, the added refinement would only be possible if TVS has tinkered with the engine/mountings. There might not be revision with the power ratings but i believe the difference will be as much as i have noticed in two different versions of A150.

                          Food for Speculation: Even the RTR 180 uses the silencer where the exhaust(head) mountings are same as that of the Flame.

                            here is the proof. its with out watermark.
                            you call it a proof, ATUL , Then I would want you to share the link also from where you copied itz
                            The time when he clikced and posted it on FB it was without the Watermark.

                            In this way any tom,dick or harry can claim that it wasnt clicked by him.

                            But when we know that he has been one such person who has got the max and most concrete info from TVS since ages, probably you when you wern't here even. we would believe that these are his pics as these also being posted by the mods after seeing something!

                            You need to be more confident before you come up to point at someone who is 10x times of what you are here!
                            Hope you take it as an understanding!
