To them of talking about refinement........ If bikes will be calm enough of the high reves also than better going for an electric one......... I love mild vibrations and grunt..... And after 60+ you will stop noticing the vibrations and will love the feedback from engine and handle
It sounds like your carburetter is running a rich mixture ( too much petrol , not enough air ) . Replace the sponge air filter,. If the kilometers covered in 9 years exceeds 50,000 and you have not carried out any major repairs, then you have to...clean the air filter..change the oil filter AND oil if not done earlier...replace the spark plug and cap...keep tyre pressures at 25 front/32-35 rear..clean carburetter jets..check carburetter diaphragm if it is torn...check valve clearances..inlet 5 thou, exhaust 7 thou...check if carbon accumulated in the silencer is choking the exhaust...etc. etc. If all else fails switch back to Apache carburetter of the correct specification ..UCal BS 29 from TVS. But first just fit a new air filter and try !

The TVS Apache RTR 180 and Bajaj Pulsar 150 comes equipped with different engines and the parts also function differently. We'd suggest you to get original spare parts installed in your Apache RTR 180. Please click on the link and select your city accordingly for service centre details: TVS Bike Showrooms
All sporty bikes need more care and maintenance like lubricating chain sprocket , using good grade engine oil, timely and treat it like your family member it never let you down, and most important maintain proper tyre pressure which we most us neglect

Clean air filter, clean and set spark plug gap, change oil every 5000 km, replace oil filter every 5000 km, keep tyre pressures at 25 f and 32 r, check chain tension and alignment, check if brake pads are rubbing against discs, use good quality petrol.

After using a bike for years, even a single hand usage, Mileage of the bike won't stay constant! For an efficient mileage regular service to the bike is necessary.
The mileage of any vehicle always depends on the riding condition, timely service management, tire pressure management, etc. In order to improve the mileage, we would suggest you to drive slower. Driving fast can reduce your fuel efficiency by up to 33% if you are travelling above 60 kmph. It is best to change gears appropriately and match the gear and the RPM carefully. The tire pressure should be checked at least monthly because properly inflated tires can improve fuel efficiency by up to 3%. If you follow all these so you will get very good mileage with your vehicle.

Clean air filter, change spark plug, ride with correct tyre pressures, 28 front, 35 rear, . if you do not find improvement, clean carburetter jets and air passages with carb cleaner or compressed air.
