Latest On TVS Apache RTR 180

TVS has launched the 2019 Apache RTR 180 at a price of Rs 84,578 and Rs 95, 392 (both, ex-showroom Delhi) for the standard and ABS variant, respectively. The 2019 iteration of TVS’ 180cc motorcycle features new paint options, including Pearl White, Gloss Black, T Grey, Matte Blue and Matte Red. It also gets a slightly refreshed instrument cluster, forged handlebar-ends and a premium seat cover, which TVS says feels like Alcantara. The motorcycle also features frame sliders mounted on the crash guard. Apart from these changes, the new bike is the same as the previous-gen model.

The instrument panel gets an LCD display showing speedometer, odometer, two trip meters, clock, lap timer and fuel gauge, with a large analogue tachometer. The engine, alloy wheels and exhaust get an all-black treatment and overall fit and finish of the Apache RTR 180 is quite good. The Apache RTR 180 is powered by a 177.4cc, single-cylinder, four-stroke engine that develops 17.5PS of power and 15.5Nm of maximum torque. The 2019 TVS Apache RTR 180 is the most affordable motorcycle in India to offer dual-channel ABS as an option. This is the variant we’d suggest as it makes the motorcycle a lot more safer than the non-ABS one.

TVS Apache RTR 180 Highlights

Overview

Serving the performance purists in the 150cc and above class of bikes, the Apache range of motorcycles from TVS comes with an extremely peppy and grunty motor coupled with equally enthusiastic handling dynamics.

Design and Features

The RTR 180 is clearly based on the earlier RTR, with only the ‘RTR’ logo on the sharper tank scoops distinguishing it from the RTR 160. The bike received a design update in 2012 to make it look sportier. As part of the design update the headlight now comes with LED DRLs, and the bike also gets more chiselled tank extensions, sharper body panels, larger belly pan and revised graphics. There is also the option of turning up the clip-on handlebars by up to four degrees, to go with every riding style. The digital cum analogue instrument panel includes a speedometer, odometer, two tripmeters, clock, lap timer and fuel gauge, alongside an analogue tachometer. The engine, alloy wheels and exhaust get an all-black treatment and overall fit and finish of the Apache RTR 180 is quite good. The Apache RTR 180 is powered by a 177.4cc single-cylinder, four-stroke engine developing 17.5PS of power and 15.5Nm of maximum torque. This engine offers entertaining performance with a strong mid range but engine vibes are on the higher side. The TVS Apache RTR 180 is the cheapest motorcycle in India to offer ABS as an option (segment-first).

Specifications

The 177.4cc, single-cylinder, 4-stroke motor generates a maximum output of 17.5PS of power and 15.5Nm of torque. The power is transferred to the rear wheel via a five-speed gearbox. The RTR 180 has a fuel capacity of 16 litres and weighs in at 139kg. Brakes come equipped with optional ABS and are managed by a 270mm disc up front and a 200mm disc at the rear.

Competitors

Bajaj Pulsar 180: The Pulsar 180 features almost similar power figures as the RTR. Even though it has started to show its age, it still retains the gruff character of the first Pulsars. Also, the Pulsar feels more planted and sturdy around corners.

ZigSays

Competitive pricing and performance are the two key areas for the Apache RTR 180, and it delivers well on both fronts, with class-leading features like the ABS, which again has been a segment-first. It doesn’t feels as surefooted as the Pulsar does while cornering. However, the RTR 180 too has started showing its age, and if ABS is not on your priority list, we would recommend you to consider the RTR 200 as well, since it’s a more modern motorcycle.
