About Apache RTR 180 [2018-2019]

The Apache series was first introduced in 2007 as a successor to the popular Fiero, post the TVS-Suzuki split. The Apache 180 RTR was launched a while later with a rebored 177cc engine to compete with the Bajaj Pulsar 180 DTS-i. The latest version of the Apache 180 RTR gets a major design overhaul with a very offbeat styling, though it is still easily identifiable as an Apache. It is also one of the first and bikes in the Indian market to come equipped with an Anti-Lock Braking System or ABS.

The Apache RTR 180 is powered by a carburetted air-cooled single-cylinder 177cc engine producing 17.3bhp and 15.5Nm of torque. The rev-happy engine is mated to a five-speed manual gearbox with a wet multiplate cutch and gives out a deep throaty exhaust note.

Though the previous bikes were quite conservatively styled, the new design might not suit everyone's taste. The Apache RTR 180 gets a new headlamp with two LED DRL strips, edgier engine cowl and fuel tank design which might seem too loud, but give this bike its own rebel character. There’s an even more aggressive paint scheme in the ‘Race Edition’ now. This puts red and grey stripes on a white background, and the new TVS 3D logos adorn the tank.

In the Apache RTR 180, the two-way adjustable clip-on handlebars sit quite low and the footpegs are slightly pushed rearwards, which allow the rider a sporty riding position. A short wheelbase means that the Apache RTR 180 is very agile, though being tuned for good handling, the ride is on the stiffer side. The engine is refined, though vibrations do creep in at high revs. ABS with disc brakes both in the front and rear means that braking is very confidence-inspiring. It gets a part analogue, part digital instrument cluster with a digital speedometer, odometer, clock, fuel counter and a lap timer. It also gets an electric start and six-spoke alloy wheels.

The Apache RTR 180 is available in seven colour schemes, some of which are matte, and one of which is the Race Edition. Prices for the Apache 180 start at Rs 83,000 (ex-showroom). There is also a version with ABS available.
