TVS Apache RTR 180 Latest Updates

TVS has launched the 2019 Apache RTR 180 with single-channel ABS, priced at Rs 91,409 (ex-showroom, Delhi). 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.

Apache gives more power less mileage whereas pulsar gives moderate power with more mileage. first decide your requirement. if mileage is not your problem then go for Apache. but if you want more mileage then go for pulsar. Apache gives 17.5 bhp, pulsar gives 14.1 bhp power.

Q. Please, can you help me with RTR 180 motorcycle fuel tank and reserve fuel tank capacities?
  • Contrary to what TVS claims i have found that 9 to 10 litres fills up the tank almost up to the cap ( including about 1.75 litres in reserve.) Its never a good idea to fill more. The correct way to measure your mileage is to let it come to reserve, note the km. reading, fill whatever quantity you want, and finally note the km reading exactly when the next reserve comes up. This will give you your correct mileage if you divide the kms by the litres you have filled.
  • 16ltr. tank with 2 ltr reserve

    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.

TVS Apache RTR 180 Highlights

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.

Apache RTR 180 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.

Apache RTR 180 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).

TVS Apache RTR 180 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.


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.
