The minimalist graphics play an important role in making the motorcycle look premium too. The big design change on the new BS6 bike is the addition of an angular all-LED headlight that complements the muscular-looking fuel tank extensions. A large swathe of grey panels keeps the midsection of the bike interesting while the rear is dominated by a chunky-looking tyre hugger and a sporty twin-barrel exhaust.

It features an all-digital instrument cluster, which shows interesting information like lap timer, top speed recorder, apart from the regular trove of information. Another big change on the BS6 RTR 160 4V is the inclusion of the Glide Through Traffic function, which is essentially a low-speed assist.
