The lights are fitted with day time running LED's for better illumination and clear lens indicators for strong signals. The bike looks sporty and aggressive from the front that makes it an eye catcher. The blackened out alloy wheels enhances the beauty of this commuter. The bigger, sturdy fuel tank bearing the RTR symbol printed in bold letters gives it a cool and aerodynamic graphics. The gold finished rear shockers and front fork compliments the RTR 180 style.

Apache is my beloved bike. Specially model of 2016, Just one word, Happy and acceptable bike. And my personal opinion is for those who love Apache RTR, than you should guys try to encourage this company because there are competitor in market, but Apache RTR is the best engineering of TVS company.

Best Features: Instrument cluster, aerodynamic scopes, ABS, roto petal disc, Superb synchronized racing Chassé for better control in 140 kmph speed. Good for money value.

Pros: First thing is it's aggressive look, and Superb performance in its segment, amazing and stylish aggressive look, mostly in this matte blue edition I believe this is best rear happy bike in india.

Cons: Nothing to compromise in 2016 year model
