TVS Apache RTR 160 Modified By Indonesia Based Brilliant Custom Motorcycle

Indonesia based Brilliant Custom Motorcycle (BCM) has modified a TVS Apache RTR 160 giving it a never-seen-before scrambler look and feel. Adi Prasetio from BCM said that a lack of reference was a challenge as there are no scramblers based on the motorcycle.

The modified TVS Apache RTR 160 looks nothing like the company intended, and it is needless to say that BCM has done a fantastic job. Scramblers generally are stripped-down motorcycles that are re-built heavily for off-road trails, however, this machine looks a whole lot heavier than the original.

No modifications have been made to the engine, and while the stock 159.7cc single cylinder engine produces 14.6 brake horsepower and 13.1Nm of torque, we're sure that power and performance numbers have taken a hit thanks to the extra weight the mods bring. The engine continues to feature a six-speed gearbox.
