Recently Asked User Questions

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 is best Apache RTR 180 or Pulsar 180?
  • It would be unfair to give a verdict here as the Bajaj Pulsar 180 has been discontinued and is not available for sale, On the other hand, TVS Apache RTR 180 is a fun-to-ride motorcycle with quick handling dynamics and a range of safety features. The razor-sharp handling makes it a hoot to ride and it is a value-for-money vehicle. Moreover, we would suggest you to take a test ride before making the final decision. Follow the link and select your city accordingly for dealership details.
  • Pulsar 180 certainly will have engine issue after some time, the build is so so and tourque is less. where Apache engine is excellent, much refined, fast between 0km to 60km speed, better pickup, great riding position, ABS (life saving) and long run due to built quality. Anytime on Apache RTR 180, I am a proud owner of Apache.Do check my motovlog channel in youtube, done my travelling in whitle Apache RTR180.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=md3Ldvs1OwU
  • Both are performance bikes but Apache 180 RTR should be the 2021 model, not the older version.

Q. Which bike is the best between, Yamaha MT-15 Version 2.0 or KTM 200 Duke?
  • Both the bikes are good in their forte. The design update has given the KTM 200 Duke a new lease of life. Also, the fact that the new BS6-compliant motor does not lose out on performance almost makes it feel like a win-win. That said, the substantial hike in price means it is now more expensive than larger motorcycles such as the Suzuki Gixxer 250. However, when it comes to thrills, the KTM 200 Duke delivers it in spades! On the other hand, The updates as expected have made the new MT-15 a better bike. It looks more premium, handles better and the addition of a few new features is welcome. But we were expecting more from Yamaha! The dullness of the engine is disappointing and the lack of dual-channel ABS is just beyond any reasoning with this performance on tap. As for goodies such as a quick-shifter and traction control, they should have been offered as part of a premium variant. Moreover, we would suggest you to take a test ride before making the final decision. Follow the link and select your desired city for dealership details.Read more -Yamaha MT-15 Version 2.0 Road Test Review - The Perfect Imperfection.

User Reviews of Comparison

  • TVS Apache RTR 180
  • 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.

    Hemant Kumar1 few weeks ago
  • 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.
