The Apache RTR 180 is a small displacement performance bike offering from TVS Motor Company. In terms of both looks and performance, the Apache RTR 180 is a very good product and offers great value for money.
Sharp design elements, including LED DRLs with pilot lamps lend the Apache RTR 180 aggressive looks. The engine, tank and tail cowls are styled with aerodynamic race design and also get racy decals. 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 which produces 17.5PS of power and 15.5Nm of maximum torque. This engine offers entertaining performance with a strong mid range and peppy throttle response. The downside though is on the higher revs, so at higher speeds, the Apache RTR 180 feels harsh. In city conditions however, this is a bike which feels eager to move. The chassis and suspension together provides great ride and handling and the bike can be flicked around with ease. Petal discs both front and rear, give superior braking and with an optional ABS also available, the TVS Apache RTR 180 offers the best brakes in its segment together with crackling low and mid range performance. Best part is the price which is very very competitive and offers a lot of features on the Apache RTR 180, and offers performance which is available at much more expensive bikes. And this, together with decent mileage, makes the TVS Apache RTR 180 a very attractive motorcycle to own. For a price under Rs 80,000, the TVS Apache RTR 180 is very good value for money.
