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.
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
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.
Performance is getting bad with the course of time. Mileage is very disappointing and vibration of the bike is just annoying. Better performance and mileage is seen in other bike in the same price range Gixxer.
