Must Read Questions & Answers Before Buying Apache RTR 180
- I haven't ridden the Apache RTR 180, but, I own a 160 4V and I got to say this is perhaps the best option in this price range, considering the looks, performance, mileage and all. This machine has got an awesome stability and sticks to the road. You will never feel losing control of it even at 110+ kmph. Mileage is decent, considering the performance. Electricals could have been added but still it does well with what it's got. When it comes to braking, I have read in many reviews that its braking is not that crispy, but honestly I have never complained about the brakes. Well that's my opinion regarding the 4V. Hope it helps!
- Both have minor differences between them in performance... although 160 4v looks more aggressive in looks...180 has a slightly higher numbers but 1604v doesn't vibrates even on higher speeds unlike the 180
- Apart from vibration on the 180, both are almost the same . Of course 160 has 4 valves so performance is marginally better overall and mileage is higher, but that also depends on your riding style and habits.
- But in Vadodara ....someone says now it's come with only single channel abs .... And he is tvs showroom employee.... Thats why i confused that its is single or double
- New model single channel abs.if you wamt double channel then go for 2018 model.
- Until 2018 it was having dual channel now they've made it single channel
- Old model Apache
- Apache 180 is better...it's gives the mileage of 42-43kmpl.
- Mileage se cb unicorn and power se 180
- Only comparison is pulsar 180 but that bike is a sludge.
- Pulsar 180
- Apache 180 is very comfortable for town riding as the seat is very comfy and it's suspension is softer than activa. The low end power is also good.
- City riding not an issue.. Its very comfortable and charming. feel the Racing thortal response when you overtake.
- A bit tiring if it is in stop and go traffic. After an hour vibration causes numbness in the palms

Mine is an ABS variant. The RTR needs a lot of development in terms of comfort, stability and braking. The seat offers very unpleasant feeling during driving through rough surface. At above 70 kmph of speed, the bike shivers. The stability is tremendously disrupted during conering. Lastly, the most important part of driving : braking. It feels like requiring a lot of effort in bringing about control over the bike in emergency. The ABS needs to be replaced with a next gen one. The existing variant is not so accomplished. I have been regularly commuting since January 2014 and I have faced problems with ABS 6-7 times altogether. May a times, even while driving, it stops working and resumes after some time or engine restart. With so many complaints said, speed is the only factor on the positive side which has fastened me for such a long time. Otherwise, its rivals such as Bajaj Pulsar, Yamaha Faser and Honda CBR are are better at these points at cheaper price range. So, the company needs to give attention on the above matters in order to keep pace on the race.
Very Stylish, performance is good, both wheels got ABS awesome features in it(both wheels never lockup) , ABS works in heavy raining condition , really stunning feature, If u wants the safety go for 180ABS but it had a lot of vibrations when it touch the speed above 77KM/H, If the peoples interested in Safety go for 180ABS , never and ever go for single channel/wheel ABS in any of the bikes , its just wearing a half raincoat in Rain.Really ABS never skids you at muddy or slippery condition while braking, there is no traction control in Indian bikes while running/over acceleration conditions especially in corning or turns at muddy/slippery roads even your Apache 180ABS slips. ABS is only for braking (prevents rear wheel liftoff & wheells lockup Only)If you performance & less vibration go for 160 but never ride it
Apache Rtr 180 is definitely a good commuter bike. It is basicaly designed for city riding. Its engine is torqy and power starts to build up right from 3000 rpm and goes upto 7000. Its top end has very poor pull as engine only generates noise. Vibrations are very much felt at every point on bike such as footpegs , side view mirrors and visor . Nothing can be done to avoid it.Seats are comfortable but start feeling itchy after 40 - 50 kms of ride.Mileage in cities is around 40 - 42 KMPl and on highways increases upto 45-48 KMPl.stock tyres are not that good , provide less grip on wet road.Its maintenance is cheap untill you have to replace any of mechanical parts. Normal service will cost around 575₹ under free service .1025 ₹ paid service.for 2018 model.
I"m driving Apache RTR 180 from past 6 years and very happy with it. Driving comfort, Grip on road at a speed of 100 kmph on highways is awesome. Handling experience is really too good. Breaking experience is also good. The vehicle is powerful that even with 3 person I never felt lack of power. Mileage is not so bad on highways if compare the Engine capacity. After 6 years I"m still getting 38 kmpl fuel average.
Its a great bike in riding experience however built quality is not that great and specially the colour coating on bike and accessories. Best past is engine which runs well and gives great pick up at any speed on highway or city. Would recommend this bike If you oftent commute within city. Long routes more than 200 km are not advisable. Service stations are not that great for Tvs.
Very nice performance. I would recommend this bike over apache 160.
I like my bae its super in performance
It has a very stylish & attractive look excellent pick-up and performance overall good bike
HIgh speed as noticed while driving my bike- 116, but as per meter - 134
engine quality excellent but mileage not good.love this bike
