Q. I am bit confused between Apache RTR 180 and Hornet 2.0 which one should i go for can anyone share there reviews?
  • Selecting between the two would depend on certain factors such as budget, performance, preference of the brand, etc. TVS Apache RTR 180 gets a peppy engine 177.4cc single-cylinder fuel-injected engine that makes 16.79PS of maximum power and the bike is a great handler too. However, the bike boasts an old design and with the BS6 updates the bike remain a fan FAVOURITE for the time being. On the other hand, Honda has unleashed its brand new Hornet 2.0 which is a performance-oriented naked bike with great styling and thriving mid-range performance. The 184cc single-cylinder air-cooled mill churns out 7.27PS at 8,500rpm and 16.1Nm at 6,000rpm. However, with its price tag, Hornet 2.0 locks its horns with the likes of TVS Apache RTR 200 4V, Bajaj Pulsar NS200, Royal Enfield Bullet 350, etc. Moreover, we would suggest you to take a test ride for a better understanding of comfort and compatibility. You may click on the link and select your desired city for dealership details.Read More: - All The Juicy Details Of The Honda Hornet 2.0 - [Do The Hornet 2.0’s Rivals Have What It Takes To Stir Its Nest?@https://www.zigwheels.com/news-features/news/honda-hornet-20-vs-tvs-apache-rtr-200-4v-vs-bajaj-pulsar-ns200-specification-comparison/39583/
  • Go for 180rtr has got oil cooling and better low end torque.Oil cooling helps for non stop touring. Hornet 2.0 is over priced and underpowered for a 185 cc Engine. Honda yamaha suzuki makes their engine smooth by reducing compression ratio and making it underpowered and sell it overpriced. Some Indians who has inferiority complex to buy Indian brands will fall for the japanese. Don't support this marketing gimmick of honda yamaha suzuki. Buy Indian brands brother. Why wasting your money to make the Japanese rich.
Q. Which one to buy RTR 180 or RTR 160 v Fi?
  • Better you should Buy the Apache RTR 180 because its Aerodynamics is much better in comparision to Other Bikes in its Class and also to its Younger Sibling Apache RTR 160 4V Fi.I own a TVS Apache RTR 180 2016 Model and till now it haven't shown us any Chain Sprocket or Engine Problems, instead only the Battery Sometimes Dies Fast and we have ridden almost all kind of Terrains and its Torque & Power is amazing compared to Other 180cc Bikes. TVS APACHE RTR 180 gives you an Aggression of Performance and one who owns The RTR 180 will too soon get to the Bike's Manuals and Riding. I want to say that Our TVS APACHE RTR 180 is the 2016 Model and still it doesn't have any time to Time (almost negligible issues) and our Bike even doesn't have ABS and then also it performs and Brakes and accelerates too well, in point the Bike becomes too responsive and Easy Daily commuter and if any Buys the RTR 180 now in 2020, the New RTR 180 will definitely gonna be more Awesome and Responsive 👍🇮🇳. But maintain the Time to time Bike Servicing and Other Maintenances; you'll obviously gonna take Care of your Beautiful Bike more than you but Ride Safe Guys. Lastly, but not the least, the APACHE RTR 160 4V Fi is also a Quite very Responsive and Good Commuter Bike it's your choice, what you wanna Buy but personally I would Recommend to Buy the TVS APACHE RTR 180 ABS cz I have experienced a lot with all the Models of the Apache RTR 180 till now and I wanna say that ofcourse both the TVS bikes questioned here are amazing Bikes🙏🇮🇳👍
  • If i says if tvs motor up grade 180 with 4v and 6 speed manual then don't wast time and go for it bkz i am a owner of 180 from last 10 years but i still clock 141 kmh speed on it, in short its far better then 200 4v or 1604v in speed but as we know only speed is nothing a bike with new upgrades is better in all aspects
  • RTR 180 is better than RTR 160 because RTR180 gives you a better performance and mileage and everything whatever you need you can do with 180 but you can also do with 160 but cannot gives you everything like mileage , style , power .It depends on you and your budget .

Q. Which is best Apache RTR 180 or Unicorn 160?
  • Both are different product apache RTR 180 give you sporty looks, racing DNA, and quick throttle resposnse other side unicorn is more settle product for those who prefer refined engine, better resale, comfortable ride over sporty look.... so define your need first and choose product as per your need
  • I am using Apache 180rtr for more than 2 years and having extremely good experience in bike riding, not being biased to Apache 180 but the pickup, riding quality, handling, and performance would be better than Unicorn 160. the look too muscular, negative about the bike which I felt personally is the headlight which is not that great in the night and gear shifting which is not smooth. Apache can be for city and tour. My submission - take a test ride and the best appeal can be taken.
  • Apache RTR 180 is better than unicorn 160 because RTR 180 gives you better performance and and can everything with RTR 180 like offroading but unicorn cannot gives you performance like RTR 180 it depends on you and your budget

  • 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.

  • Top speed as per spec is 78kmph but in the normal road top speed achieved at 84kmph.Range as per the spec is 75km but in eco mode as per my calculation it would give only 67km.Suspension and design are good.Unnecessarily two drl are provided which is consuming power even though it is led lamp.App is not functioning and blue tooth connectivity is poor.App dashboard shows wrong data and they have improve lot in the app development.
