I am facing the same problem. I purchased my bike on 11/08/08 from chittorgarh (raj.), there is a continuous abnormal sound from engine and the bike vibrates like hell beyond 50kmph.In btwn does posting complaints on this site really helps ?????
for first 1000 kms you should ride your bike below 50 kms. and even then problem occurs take it to some other tvs it should be solved!
I'm having the same thing, but before giving a solution, please answer the below 2 questions

Question 1
Did you ride a bajaj bike (pulsar 180 or Disvover 125 or a Hero Honda bike) after purchasing the TVS Apache 150 or 160

Question 2
Did you try comparing the engine vibration of Bajaj/Hero Honda bike with the TVS Apache.

If both answers are yes; Please read the below facts.

Bajaj or Hero Honda or any Japanese bikes have a less engine vibration when riding.
Bajaj & TVS engines comes with diferent technologies.
TVS company makes very good fuel efficient bikes but riding conditions are poor.
Bajaj company makes very good riding condition(comfortable) bikes but milage per litre is lower.
But Bajaj company is trying to make fuel efficient bikes,
but they cannot make bothe at once (very good comfortable + very good fuel efficient bikes)
And Bajaj makes quality bikes.
Try comparing the outer finishing of a Bajaj bike with a TVS bike.
Bajaj uses a higher technology than the TVS does. (ex: first digital meter bike)

Finally you have to understand that the problem you are having is not a problem,
That is the nature(poor condition) of the TVS Apache bikes. (I understood this)

But you guys have be happy and proud of your selves as you have got a fuel efficient bike.
When the petrol price goes high, Bajaj bikers are selling their bikes.

If you having a good income(salary) go for a Bajaj Bike
If the income is low, then it is better to go for a tvs bike.

Try and understand the diferrent between the two technologies.

P. S. don't take fast bends with TVS bikes, because you will see one day, Bajaj bikes turn bends easily
But Tvs.. it is bit hard to turn a bend with TVS bikes.
Hi All,

I just wanna say u that i too have an yellow RTR 160Fi & you guys are right it shakes lot after 50 kmph. I am not taking TVS side, all of there bikes have same problem, for sure Apache will give you 'Vibration'. TVS have to seriously look in this matter, as the apache lovers are getting there hand on so called pulsar or FZ (which I don't like)So before buying you could have made some study for the same. But as u all will agree to me, the feel of the bike will forget you the vibration which it gives.

And you all are right. TVS mechanics are a bit strange. I mean they react to situation quite late. After buying my bike on 27-Feb-2009, they changed my silencer, digital meter, some fuel gauge & all. but after making me come again & again to them & now a new problem to bike, the bike automatically turn off while running. & after a some mins of drama, it works again as the problem never occurred. BUT the BIKE is Awesome over all.

TVS PLZZZZZZZZ do something for 'Vibration' yaar...The new one 180 also has same problem. C'mon we love APACHE & ya eagerly wait for the 200 or 220 variants if its true...lolz
pls gaid me, i want to buy tvs apachi 160 Fi its ok?
which bike i bought pulsar150, apache rtr 180
I m having Apache 180. The service of TVS centre is so bas. I m totally unsatisfies from the service centre. The fuel indicator of my bike is not working from the very first day. I have complained for the same in TVS but nobody bothers. I have purchased my bike (PB 33 D 0654) on July 30, 2011 from Nakodar (Jalandhar), Punjab and the black colour og the handle fades ang get a very bad look.
