Recently Asked User Questions

Q. Which is best RTR 180 with ABS or RTR 200 with drum?
  • It depends upon the rider and area to........ If you live in dry states you can go for drum but in wet areas abs will be of great help..... And between 200 and 180 maintenance and mileage will give you real worries..... The Choice is Yours 👍☺️
  • I own RTR180 dual ch ABS, and it has been a life Savior so many times. Go for dual channel, 180 or 200 or whatever.
  • Obviously 200 4v as it features more modern and powerful engine. Biggest advantage is of course with handling as 2004v features a monoshock and refinement levels are way more higher than 180. Cheers.

Q. Is there any big difference between Apache RTR 180 and Apache RTR 200 model
  • 1. Apache 200 gets 4 PS of added firepower and 2.6 Nm of better torque.2. It also gets an oil-cooler (similar to Pulsar 220) which decidedly keeps things under control. There are 2 extra valves as well.3. Apache 200 also gets Fuel Injected (make Bosch, type – closed – loop) variants in addition to the carb’d variants. Apache 180 is only offered with a carburettor. For the carburetted variants, TVS is using the Keihin CV carburettor on the Apache 200 whereas the Apache 180 comes with Mikuni BS29.4. One of the major difference between these two bikes are the tyres. Not only does the Apache 200 sport fatter (130 section rear) tyre, it gets the option of Pirelli rubber (Diablo Rosso at the front and touring oriented Angel GT at the rear). Even the Remora tyres (also made by TVS) are soft compound and offer real good grip. Apache 180 comes with TVS Srichakra tyres which we have never liked.
  • Electronically, yes...in horsepower and handling, not so much.
  • Big difference. 180 is 2 valve, whereas 200 is 4 valve. 180 does not have slipper clutch or gear indicator and body dynamics are different.

  • I am really satisfied with these bike all I want is few upgrades in these bike for example USD Suspension, Mono Sock, wide Swing Arm, Rare tyre atleast 130, and at last 6th gear may be not for direct selling but a choice for upgrades which will make a bike looks more muscular and safe for top speed ridder since 180 has no upgrade since 2012 in looks. So There fore I hope and pray that TVS will be kind enought to note down my demands Thank You Lots of love From Kanu Kalai From Tripura

  • Very light and full control in riding. Instant pick up make it more reliable. If someone use it single hand then you never loss its feel alike JUST NEWI am using it since Oct 2015. From my point of view, a customer who buy it I suggest you that when you buy it you ride it full speed and long run with two persons in order to make it more efficient for future (please ensure traffic rule and own safety). And light service every two months on 1000kmWith regards Vijay Kumar Nain

  • 121 km /h is top speed i gained but i am sure that 135/hour can gain for suitable road.Safest bike i ever experienced.Stability & less vibration are the main attraction.Cornering is really heartfelt & also assure co driver comfort.Pls do service between regular intervals & use lub only for chain sprocket.Dont allow to wet.Keep neet & clean always.Karma returns.

  • I was thinking to buy this because this bike has dual-channel abs and this bike has a very good fuel capacity and good average also.The bike looks very stylish and what a biker wants is all there in this bike.Mainly this bike has a comfortable seat.The headlights of this bike are really good.But timely maintenance of the bike is always required.

  • Look my way of riding may not be a biker type. I generally ride pretty safe and till now my highest speed is 98kmph for 3 secs. But for my daily commute I found this bike pretty useful. Though after 5 years I am having an issue with my brakes. Loosing confidence on them.

  • I bought this Bike for the College Purpose using it for 2 years, And Really 101% satisfied with the bike. The initial acceleration of the Bike is Just Awesome... seats are also very comfortable for the driver as well as for the Pillion🤟🏻 Engine is very Smooth and Refined 20.5 PS of power is enough... the styling of the bike is also awesome.. you can Get to the highways as well as in city any time... riding position is also Good... maintenance cost is Low ... but too much vibration at High speed... if you go 110+ you"ll definitely feel the vibrations in the handle and Foot rests.... It could get LEDs but Halogen is sufficient at night.... missing the USD Forks .... getting mileage of 38-40 kmpl....

  • This is best 200 cc bike in india.Feature you get in this bike you don't get on any bike.Reviewed and did a lot of research before making the purchase.I was about to buy ktm duke 200 but it's too expensive for a 200 cc bike when i saw rtr 200 4v and the feature, Performance, Ride quality, And fuel efficiency it was the best.If you are looking to buy a new 200cc bike then it's the bike to go for.

  • It is a brilliant vehicle with strong low end and midrange, easy and comfortable for daily commute, the only issue I faced so far is the gearbox, false neutrals happen too often, plus shifting down to 2nd gear, the gear lever tends to be stuck until you give acceleration
