At the heart of the bike is probably the same engine from the 160cc Apache RTR 4V. This engine has been designed to develop 17.6 hp of maximum power and 14.7 Nm of maximum torque. While the company may change the engine configuration of the new bike, the chances are less likely. The transmission could include the same 5-speed constant mesh unit.

What’s interesting to note is that the company is changing the brand name from RTR to RP, which could actually bring other solid performance changes as well.
