TVS Apache RTR 180 Latest Updates

TVS has hiked the prices of the Apache RTR 160 2V BS6 for the second time since its launch. It now costs Rs 1,050 more. For more details, head here. The RTR 180 is now priced at Rs 1,05,000. The TVS Apache RTR 180 is a performance-oriented commuter motorcycle from the Hosur-based bikemaker. It was once known to be the most affordable motorcycle in India with a proper dual-channel ABS. However, post the new safety norms it is available only with single-channel ABS.

In March 2020, TVS launched the Apache RTR 180 BS6 in India.The updated motorcycle gets a fuel-injected motor and a new Glide Through Traffic feature, but nothing else is new on the RTR 180 BS6.

Apache RTR 180 Specifications

The TVS Apache RTR 180 BS6 employs a 177.4cc single-cylinder fuel-injected engine, which churns out 16.79PS, 0.17PS more than the BS4-compliant model. The peak torque stands at 15.5Nm, which is similar to the older model but it arrives at 7000rpm instead of 6500rpm in the BS4 model. The engine works alongside a 5-speed transmission. The TVS Apache RTR 180 BS6 is built on a double cradle Synchro-Stiff chassis with telescopic fork up front and twin gas-charged shock absorbers at the rear. Brakes include a 270mm petal disc up front with single-channel ABS and a 200mm petal disc at the rear. The 17-inch wheels are shod with 90-section front and 110-section rear tubeless tyres.

Apache RTR 180 Design

The TVS Apache RTR 180 BS6 comes with the same design language as the BS4 TVS Apache RTR 180. The sporty-looking headlight cowl is complemented by muscular tank extensions that are designed to reduce the engine heat to a certain extent. The single-piece seat gets premium red stitching while the rider’s seat is ventilated for better comfort. The rear end is dominated by an LED tail lamp and sporty-looking split grab rails.

Apache RTR 180 Features

The TVS Apache RTR 180 BS6 comes with a halogen headlamp, LED DRL and tail lamp. The indicators are of bulb-type though. TVS has equipped the motorcycle with an analogue-digital combo cluster, which houses a tachometer, dual tripmeters, odometer, speedometer, fuel gauge, clock, low battery and low fuel lights, and maintenance indicator apart from other telltale lights. It also gets a 0-60kmph acceleration timer, which will be appreciated by enthusiasts. The motorcycle comes with a Super-Moto ABS, which is essentially TVS’ jargon for single-channel ABS. Another notable feature is the Glide Through Traffic function, which ensures the bike can crawl at low speeds simply by clutch modulation and no throttle. This feature will be handy while crawling through traffic-riddled roads.

TVS Apache RTR 180 Competitors

The TVS Apache RTR 180 BS6 primarily rivals the Bajaj Pulsar 180F and the Honda Hornet 2.0.

TVS Apache RTR 180 Price

TVS Apache RTR 180 price start at Rs. 1.06 Lakh (Ex-Showroom). TVS Apache RTR 180 is offered in only one variant - BS6.

Must Read Questions & Answers Before Buying Apache RTR 180

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.

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🙏🇮🇳👍
  • 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 .
  • I have RTR 180 , It's a good bike but i think you should go for 160 4v Fi, because it's new and upgraded engine its also Fi. 160 4v engine smoother than rtr 180 also less vibration. 20cc is not matter.. So you decide...

Q. Which bike is best among Apache rtr 180 and 160 4v?
  • 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
  • See,Every Apache bikes are Best . In that You choose variant depends upon your choice and for your need...My choice is 160 4V, because Engine Breathing will be good , Look wise Stylish than 180. but 180 is also a Best Apache brotherhood

Editor's View of TVS Apache RTR 180

  • Upside

    It packs a peppy motor.Braking performance is solid.It is an able handler.

  • Downside

    Design is pretty old.Now comes with single-channel ABS only.It is a bit expensive for a 180cc bike.

  • Our Verdict

    The TVS Apache RTR 180 BS6 gets a few but crucial updates to make it future-proof at least for the time being. With these, it has the potential to remain a fan favourite for a little longer, at least as long as the 180cc segment remains sparsely populated.


Apache RTR 180 Detailed Review

Intro: RTR Resurrection!


The Hosur-based TVS Motor Company is back with a bang this time with a better-equipped and all-round motorcycle in the form of the new Apache RTR 180. Since the days of the Fiero, TVS has been churning out products developed on the race-tracks and incorporating fundamentals gained from the Company's active participation in racing.

And though the Apache has always enjoyed decent fan-following and race-credentials, somehow its track lessons have failed to deliver on the street and the company has been unsuccessful in challenging the might of its arch rival, Bajaj Auto. Let's see if the new Apache RTR 180 delivers all that it promises and lives upto the expectations of its followers.

Design and style: A Devil in Angel's guise


Never has the Apache RTR appealed to my eyes as much as the bike in white. Very few street-spec bikes can really carry off the angelic-look with panache and elan. While the fuel efficiency test runs, a couple of times she was parked by the side of the road, and as I admired her beauty under the overcast weather, I could see every passerby turn around to give the bike a second look. The big 'RTR' logo on the Apache's flanks adds a lot of spunk to the bike and goes well with its belligerent stance. The front fork barrels and disc calipers doused in golden paint adds a sophisticated touch to the Apache RTR. An RTR 180 exclusive touch is a sporty rear mud-guard holding the number-plate in place and also aluminium foot pegs which are available as an option.

Ergonomics: Sit Fit!


Ergonomics is one thing which TVS really needs to pay attention to the Apache series. The foot-forward riding posture of the Apache has always played a major spoilsport in enjoying spirited riding. It has been prevalent ever since the first model rolled out of the factory. While the clip-on handlebars and sporty seat feel just right for city as well as highway and track use, the foot pegs are just too forward and fail to substantiate the sporty character of the bike.

We understand the efforts going in to strike a balance between sporty feel and city comfort, but why is it taking so long for TVS to achieve something that has been mastered by its competition and bettered with time like the new Pulsars and the new Yamahas? Maybe it is TVS Company's track-focused outlook which is restricting them from getting the right balance. We all know that strong sales numbers come from the street and not from the track, not just in India but even abroad.



Engine: Fire Breather


The Apache always had a high-revving motor right from the first model launched in 2006, when it quickly became the most preferred set of wheels for the track as well as for spirited riding. The new RTR 180 carries the same genes but in a much more docile and approachable manner. The 177.4cc single cylinder air-cooled engine is a bored out version of the reliable TVS motor seen on earlier generation Apaches. The power figure has been upped to 17.3PS (at 8500rpm) from the RTR 160's 16PS. The torque too has been significantly increased from 13.1Nm to 15.5Nm while the rev-range of the torque has been made wider to 6,500rpm instead of the RTR160's 6,000rpm. A wider spectrum of the torque means more grunt and availability of power even at lower revs, improving the in-town rideability of the bike. The bike employs carburetor unlike fuel injection seen on the RTR 160 FI, which also gave TVS the freedom to place the new RTR 180 within the reach of an average buyer.

Chassis and suspension: Street-Spec!


Apart from the wheelbase and the wheels, there are no major changes made to the double-down tube cradle frame and the RTR 180 retains the same underpinnings as seen on the RTR 160. The wheelbase now measures 1326mm, lengthened by 26mm over the RTR 160. This move has considerably helped in giving the Apache RTR a much stable feel on the road. On a race-track, a slightly twitchier motorcycle will be better in terms of handling as it will tip-in quickly with less effort and help reduce the time spent going into a corner. But on the road and under real world conditions, the handling needs to be complimented by stability for obvious reasons like safety and to aid the confidence inspiring ability of the bike. The older Apache was ultra-flickable into corners but severely lacked mid-corner stability and its tendency to tip over quickly into corners was more scary than friendly on the street for many.

The increased wheelbase is the most striking change and a welcomed one on the new RTR 180. The bike feels much more planted on the road, mid-corner and definitely more street-friendly than ever before. Another change is the adoption of 17" wheel on the rear as against the 18" inch rear wheel incorporated on the previous Apache models. The RTR 180 also gets a 200mm diameter petal disc for the rear while upfront it incorporates a 270mm petal disc. The suspension duties for the front are handled by 105mm telescopic forks and the TVS exclusive Monotube Inverted Gas filled shocks (MIG) with spring aid twin shock absorbers employed on the rear are well upto the task of taking hard thrashing, be it bumpy roads or hard-cornering. However, the ride is not as plush on the new RTR compared to its rivals and suspension feels a bit stiffer than before - but that only helps in giving the Apache a sportier handling and providing precise feedback.



Performance:


Finally, India is witnessing performance wars in the motorcycle industry and bike-makers are slowly upping the ante in terms of performance of their products. While Yamaha stunned the competition with its YZF-R15 last year, this year Bajaj Auto went all out with the new Pulsar 220 DTSi - a blow which landed directly on each and every manufacturer in India trying to make a mark in the premium motorcycle segment. The TVS products have always been competitive but the top honour of being the fastest bike in the market has been evading them ever since they entered the premium segment with the Fiero.

Sadly, this time also the new Apache RTR 180 fails to beat the top contender, the Pulsar 220 DTSi in the performance war. However, the new RTR 180 beats its direct competition, the 2009 Pulsar 180 DTSi in terms of acceleration, just. The RTR 180 completed the 0-60km/h dash in just 4.44 seconds, beating the Pulsar 180's time of 4.64 seconds. The power on the RTR 180 is more focused towards the mid-range and it can be seen in the 30-70km/h roll-ons as the 180 bettered the time of the 160 by over 2 seconds in third gear and over a second in fourth gear roll-on. With the increased displacement and additional horses the RTR 180 recorded an impressive top speed figure of 119.95km/h.



Living with it: The Apache RTR 160 was always my favourite. How could they better it more?


Yes, it might have been our favourite because of its strong racing credentials on the track and its enthusiastic engine waiting to be revved hard, but on the street, the jerky power delivery, twitchy handling and vibrations sure made it a difficult bike to ride around stop and go traffic. This is what has been bettered on the new RTR 180, big time. The vibes which were so strongly present on the RTR 160 right from 65km/h have totally disappeared on the new RTR 180 and even at its top whack, the bike feels smooth minus any irritating vibrations on the bars or the pegs. The power delivery is still a bit jerky and pesky in stop and go traffic, but a lot more tractable than the 160.

It is more street-friendly and handy and the motor revs freely upwards of 3,000rpm. The digital instrumentation layout remains same as the RTR 160 but gets a white dial making it more legible than before. But then again, TVS has faltered with its choice of tyres. The TVS rubber seriously hampers the joy of cornering as it fails to provide precise feedback. However, the rear tyre profile has been changed to 110 / 90 x 17" as against the RTR 160 configuration of 100 / 90 x 18". The increased displacement and wider tyre directly affects the bike's fuel efficiency to some extent but considering its performance and weight, the overall fuel consumption figure of 47.04 kmpl is reasonable. With a fuel tank capacity of 16 litres, it gives the bike an impressive tank range of 752km.

Verdict:


Competitive pricing is the key of the new Apache RTR 180. Priced at Rs. 63990/- ex showroom Delhi, the new Apache does offer great value-for-money. Hence, for bikers looking for something that has best of both worlds with class-leading features, the new RTR 180 makes a lot of sense. However, the competition is just equally well matched in terms of value-for-money and performance - two key areas that help in making the final purchase decision, in this segment.

    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.

    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.

  • 5.0

    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

  • 3.0

    All over performance is average as per the name of tvs the average is also good but not excellent.i have purchased this bike in 2011 after 7 yrs around it works good so I terms of that the bike is Good in condition but it depends on your maintenance as well how you ride it rough or smooth.

  • 4.2

    its spr bike very good in power but heavy vibration and chain sproket complaint and no road grip to rear wheel other wise this no complaint good for maintenance cost also low and power is good easy to controll for.rough use and smooth use both are comfortable i like this
