Here is what our experts feel about Apache RTR 180
TVS Apache RTR 180 is a modern and youth-focussed bike with sharp looks and aerodynamic, offbeat styling. The bike’s design speaks for the aggression it holds that’s released with the twist of the throttle. It gives you thrills from the word go while keeping you safe and high on confidence when it comes to braking. It is one of the first bikes in India to feature Anti-lock Braking System (ABS), which also makes it a clear winner against opponents like the Bajaj Pulsar 180. As a motoring enthusiast, all you desire is a quick pickup and blistering torque from the fitted power mill - well, the TVS Apache RTR 180 has you all covered. A new White Race Edition is also on offer that uplifts its design with race-inspired styling elements. With the brute performance, impressive efficiency and undeniable road presence, the Apache RTR 180 is the undisputed champion of the segment. The starting price you need to spare for the Apache RTR 180 is Rs 83,728 (Ex-showroom, Delhi).
The TVS Apache RTR 180 is similar to its sibling RTR 160 in terms of design - sharp and aggressive. Upfront, the RTR 180 gets beast-inspired LED headlamps with AHO, LED light guides and new pilot lamps. The semi-digital instrument cluster gets a digital gauge for speed, fuel, trip and distance on the left and an analogue tachometer on the right. The console is surrounded by carbon fibre which looks quite upmarket. The sculpted fuel tank, in addition to getting stylish RTR insignia, gets air scoops for the bike to breathe properly. There is a muscular engine cowl with an aerodynamic razor-sharp look. The sleek tail is imprinted with the tri-colour insignia that looks pleasing. At the rear, it gets an LED tail lamp, split grab rail, sharp fender design and clear lens side indicators. The 17-inch alloy wheels add to its sporty look big time. For a comfortable ride, TVS has incorporated adjustable split clip-on handlebars and adaptable brake pedal and gear levers. Highlighting aspects of the design are, however, the gold-finished front forks and brake callipers.
Talking about the White Race Edition, the RTR 180 gets 3D TVS logo on the fuel tank, carbon-fibre styling theme and TVS Racing decals on the alloys. Aside from the White Race Edition, you get six colour options, including White, Black, Matte Black, Matte Blue, Matte Grey and Matte Red. The ABS variant, alternatively, is available in only three shades, white, black and matte blue. Dimensionally, the RTR 180 measures 2085mm in length, 730mm in width and 1105mm in height.
Powering the TVS Apache RTR 180 is the single-cylinder, air-cooled 177.4cc engine that produces 16.62PS of maximum power at 8,500rpm and 15.5Nm of peak torque at 6,500rpm while being mated to a 5-speed gearbox. TVS claims that the Apache RTR 180 is capable enough to return a fuel economy of 45 Kmpl. Further, it can travel from nought to 60kmph in less than 4.5 seconds before touching the top speed of 114kmph. With 90% of fuel and tool kit, the Apache RTR 180 tips the scales at just 137kg. No wonder it responds rapidly to the commands and pretty easy-to-manoeuvre. Despite refinement being done, you can still feel vibrations, though at high speeds. One aspect that requires TVS to work on is its NVH levels that hamper ride for reasons that can be easily avoided.
The Apache RTR 180 is bolted on the synchronous stiff chassis that provides robustness to the bike. The RTR 180’s suspension assembly is a combination of telescopic forks and monotube inverted gas-filled shocks at the front and rear respectively. Braking on the RTR 180 is taken care of by the petal discs at both the ends, a 270mm disc at the front and a 200m disc at the rear. The switchable dual-channel ABS is, however, a welcome addition, giving an edge over others available on the market. The 17-inch alloy wheels are wrapped inside the section tyres of size 90/90-17 at the front and 110/80-17 at the rear. The RTR 180 is an easy-to-manoeuvre vehicle no matter how much traffic you, as a rider, have to deal with - thanks to the adequate seat height, placement of foot pegs, adjustable clip-on handlebar and adaptable gear levers and brake pedal.
From the safety essentials, TVS doesn’t miss out on including the most important one and that is ABS (Anti-lock Braking System). The dual-channel switchable ABS comes with RLP (Rear Wheel Lift off Protection) that not only adds to the safety front but grants rider the much-needed confidence, while the bike is pushed in the corners or for that matter throttle is twisted hard on a smooth plane. Additionally, there are petal disc brakes for quick braking and Auto Headlamp On (AHO) feature for clear visibility that works incredibly regardless of light and weather conditions.
