Lightbulb Need to modify TVS Apache RTR160

I'm new here!

Please, can anyone tell me or suggest me, how to modify my Apache 160 into a great sporty bike?
I've painted it's rear alloy wheel into red, matched with the rear suspensions!
I'm thinking to cover its engine like Karizma's.
I don't want to remove my side mirrors.

Please help me.
Thanks!!!

why why ? its already sporty lookin bike, dont make a mess of it.

I've painted it's rear alloy wheel into red, matched with the rear suspensions!

warning you never post a pic, within secs it would be in wacky thread.

I'm thinking to cover its engine like Karizma's.
I don't want to remove my side mirrors.

It would spoil the whole look of the bike, rtr-160 can never become karizma by covering the engine
if you dont like to remove the mirrors then dont to me its looks nice
if its removed, coz it depends on one's like & dislike.

Before doing the following have you ever thaught that you would be loosing the warranty of your bike, if your pockets are deep filled with lots of dollars then continue, if not turn it back to stock its up to you now.

Cheers

Pradeep

Thanks for replying...
It's first 2 free services are done.
3 are left! then it will like orphan to everyone, even to TVS.
That's why I want to modify it and take it to the racing edge.

Modifying in terms I want to replace the bulbs, rear mud flap, etc with other ones. To make it a complete new bike.
If I put P220's side mirrors?

I want to give it a Moto GP style without any stickers!

So "giving" the RTR "a moto GP style" by giving it new bulbs, new mud flap(sic) etc will immediately elevate it to the racing edge?

TVS, and the RTR, already have a great racing heritage on our Indian tracks. This is the heritage you would want to enjoy, rather than try to make one good looking bike look like another.

This is only my honest opinion. Opinions differ, tho. I wish you all the best in your mission.

Why not do some performance mods instead? Like k&N air filter and jetting?

Tell me more about enhancing it's performance without dropping the mileage!
Let me know more about K&N air filter and jetting.

And please tell me, like in dhoom1, nitrox is available for this?
Is there any other modifications are available?

I like the side mirrors of P220 and lighting handle bar of it.
can I go for it?
It will look nice.

Performance without drop in mileage?? Hard luck mate.

You can get a K&N and get the jetting done, but then you might end up decreasing the FE, and you won't get an impressive improvement in performance.

You could try changing your sprockets. You are looking for more acceleration or greater top speed??

Please don't go about trying to change the bike's appearance. It looks sporty and sexy as it is.

Buy a 220 rather than 200, and then paint it yellow with black vinyls, it will remind you of your RTR!!

nerco you can put in a bigger tyre, and K&N and upjet thats all i can think of for now, the other day i saw apache with a bigger tyre at rear it was looking awesome i think you can put in 110/90-18 or 120/80-18 tyre i am not sure of the max size that can be fixed but check it out its worth it!
