TVS Apache RTR 180 ABS Review

17 Jun, 2019 08:54 PM

Overview

Apache RTR 180 is one of the most powerful TVS bikes ever launched in India. The bike has been recently upgraded as it has direct competition with the Bajaj Pulsar 180 Neon and other premium 150cc bikes like Yamaha FZS, Suzuki Gixxer 155, and Honda CB Hornet 160R. Can this challenger from TVS rule its segment? Let’s find out.

The RTR 180 is almost a carbon copy of its younger sibling, the Apache RTR 160. It takes time to notice the little changes made to this bike. TVS has added new elements of style to this bike which includes revamped headlight and front cowl. The pilot lamps of the bike are now combined with day time running LEDs which turns on with ignition. Its clear lens indicators and black coloured rear view mirrors are the same. Its front fender features racing graphics on it which looks sporty with racing stripes on its black coloured alloy wheels. To make it look aggressive and aerodynamic, TVS has added bigger tank shrouds on this bike.

TVS has printed RTR in bold letters on its fuel tank which also features cool graphics. Front forks and rear shockers of this bike are given a gold finish which complements the styling of this bike. The engine cowl is the sportiest thing that you can notice in this bike. Its black coloured muffler is partly covered by a chrome shield. The racing style continues at the back also as you will notice sporty decals on its rear cowl. Its split grab rail, short rear fender and dual coloured tail light adds macho character to this bike.

Apache RTR 180 ABS has a very interesting instrument panel which will surely impress youngsters. The LCD of this bike features a digital speedometer, odometer, trip meter, clock and fuel gauge. Apart from this, there is also a feature in this bike which records its top speed and 0-60km/hr timings. There is an analogue tachometer in this bike with an illuminating needle. You will also notice other important indicators in this instrument console. The LCD uses a blue colour for illumination which looks really funky at night.

TVS has equipped the RTR 180 ABS with a 4-stroke, single cylinder 177.4cc engine. This 2-valve, SOHC engine pumps out a peak power of 16.62 hp at 8500 rpm. The maximum torque output of this engine is 15.5 Nm which is achievable at 6500rpm. It shares its 5-speed manual gearbox with its younger sibling, Apache RTR 160. It has one gear down and four gears up-shift pattern. RTR 180 can achieve the 0-60 kmph mark in less than 4.7 seconds. The gearbox has been slightly tuned for smoother gear transitions but its gear ratios are almost the same. Its instant throttle response in every gear is the best thing about this engine. The bike has the best power to weight ratio in its class. It performs terrific between 3000-7000rpm. The early torque building helps you while overtaking on highways.

The bike is fun to drive at slow speeds where you get the best display of its power. It can achieve 0-100km/hr in around 14 seconds, and the top speed goes all the way to a whacking top speed of 114 kmph (official top speed). Sadly, TVS couldn’t get rid of the vibrations at high speeds. This engine is surely less refined and makes a lot of noise at high rpm levels. The high-end performance of this engine is not as impressive as Pulsar 180 Neon. As far as the mileage is concerned, this bike can give you a mileage of around 40-45 kmpl on highways while its fuel efficiency ranges from 35-40 kmpl in city conditions.

When it comes to comfort, it hardly feels different from its previous generation. The seat offers more comfort than its rivals It’s well cushioned and can hold you for a long time easily. The handlebar offers a firm grip and gives a nice hold of the bike. There is an engine kill switch also which is quite convenient to use. The rear set foot-pegs help you to get a sporty riding posture with knees folded around its fuel tank. TVS has made no changes in braking and suspension. Apache 180 features front telescopic forks while it has mono-tube gas-filled shock absorbers at the back. TVS has incorporated disc brakes on its both wheels. Apache was the first bike in India to get Roto-Petal Discs. It has a front disc brake of 270mm and a rear disc brake of 200mm.

The Apache RTR 180 ABS has a wheelbase of 1326mm and ground clearance of 165mm which gives it better stability than before. Handling has never been an issue with this bike. It turns and steers accurately even at high speeds. The bike finds it hard though to stay grounded at high speeds due to its lightweight and soft suspension. High-speed cornering has improved significantly but would have been much better with a wider rear tyre. At present, the new model of Apache RTR 180 ABS is available in 4 shades: Matte Blue, Pearl White, T Grey, and Gloss Black.
