The Apache RTR 180 was the company's flagship motorcycle before the Apache RTR 200 motorcycle was launched. The bike offers a good mix of performance and comfort and it was among the most popular motorcycles from TVS but now is starting to show its age cosmetically and mechanically. The bike was given a design update back in 2012 to make it look sharper and sportier with LED DRLs. As part of the design update, the bike was equipped with sharper tank extensions and revised graphics. The TVS Apache RTR 180 has been priced at Rs 79,514 (ex-showroom, Delhi).
The instrument panel gets an LCD display showing speedometer, odometer, two trip meters, clock, lap timer and fuel gauge, with a large analog 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). The ABS variants carries a premium of aroumd Rs 10,000 and given the benefits it offers, we suggest its worth the extra money.

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.
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).
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.
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.
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.
