    I owned this bike June 2017 , a terrible experience with this. Initially it has problems with the mask vibration. Same showed to arunagiri motors service station, they rectified temporarily. After 3rd service found issue with the front fork, after visiting service centre 3 times they changed the inner tubes. But after that again the mask vibration starts which is more than the initial time. I afraid to ride bcz it vibrating a lot. When i visited today (30.3.18) one of the engineer said this is common with the rtr180. If it is common issue, why tvs still manufacturing & selling this bike to the peoples. I paid nearly 1 lakh, now i has the feeling that it is useless & i shouldn't have gone to tvs showroom.

    It's been 6 years since i first saw the pleasure in the showroom. Even though there were quite a lot of customers that day, all the paperwork took only twenty minutes. I was really happy with the buying experience. I am a 6' foot tall male weighing 97kgs now. Even though hero advertises the pleasure as a girly vehicle, i have had no problems riding it. I even took it to nh33 and rode more than 60kms that day. There were no problems.The old pleasure has aged well. Even though the new pleasure certainly looks better, the old pleasure is still something good to look at. The engine is punchy and responsive at the lower rev range. However, it does feel a little out of breadth at full throttle. (do not try that on public roads!!! i did that on an uphill)we chose hero honda over other manufacturers because their service centre was close to our house. Servicing is an easy process. Just drop your vehicle at the service centre along with a few papers in the morning and the vehicle is fully serviced by the evening. Maintenance is affordable.Pros:- 1. Pleasure has perfect proportions. Its neither too big nor too small. 2. Good grips on the handle bar. I feel no fatigue after travelling long distances.3. Engine is powerful enough while providing decent fuel economy. When it was new, i was able to squeeze out 43.3 kmpl (101% accurate, i tested that out myself), now its 35-40 kmpl, but i can live with that.4. Foot-pegs are easy to open and close for the passenger. Cons:-1... Male riders wants a bit more leg space.2. Instrument cluster is outdated.4. Body protectors are prone to rusting.

    I am an owner of apache rtr. I bought this bike 11 months ago. Till now my experience for this bike is excellent specially in this budget segment.I bought this bike for 90k on road.This bike is really good choice for daily users.It provides you the smoothest ride with smooth gear shifting.Yes,above 70kmph engine is little vibey but this thing is quite normal with rtr engine so there is no need to worry about vibrations.It has a rally good pickup which is good sign for its usage in heavy traffic. Of-course i am in very initial part in journey with this bike but till now it is giving me the average of 70kmpl on highway.Believe me it has a really good average.One can buy it with real disc also.About its look,it looks resembles muscular guy with sparkling eyes.If you want a bike in this price range apache will be the best choice:)...

    This is a good bike for daily commute. If i talk to about its mileage and comfort then it's ok not satisfactory. But it's handling and performance on highway and city is excellent. It's build quality and road presence (before 2017) was quite good. Arai certified mileage is 45km/l but gives me only 30km/.

    I bought my apache on 1st jan,2017 for almost 90k. Originally it was a gift from my father. Before this i had a pulsar 180, so i am very much familiar with 180cc bike regarding it's pickup, fuel efficiency etc. The sales agency was very friendly so the buying experience was almost as perfect as it can be and they completed all their formalities. They gave various incentives also like 5 free services and a 5 year extended warranty on the bike engine. The riding experience of my bike is as smooth as it could be. The most attractive point which i found in the bike was it's aerodynamics, the maneuverability is awesome with which you can make some awesome cuts (overtaking a vehicle). The fuel efficiency should not be major consideration if you want to purchase this bike as the mileage given by the bike was between 35-40 kmph. You can only expect this for an almost racing bike. There only some cosmetic changes that were missing in the bike (as i said i had a pulsar) that were the backlit buttons and auto-off indicators. Apart from these the bike has an awesome look and feel to it. The performance of the bike is as promised by tvs. Now coming to service and maintenance; the cost for maintaining the bike is pretty nominal. The bike needs to be serviced after approximately 1.5-2 months. The service cost was roughly rs. 700-900 which included the tvs motors mobil oil, which any opinion is best oil for the bike and other things included in this are oil filter, chain oil, brake oil and labour (after free services). Summing up the above info i get to following pros and cons of the bike:Pros:- 1) aerodynamic design 2) great pickup 3) good fuel efficiency for an almost racing bike. 4) great riding experience 5) affordable cost of maintenance Cons:- 1) no backlit buttons 2) no auto-off turn indicators 3) better mileage in the same price segment.So that's my opinion on the tvs apache rtr 180. I hope it may be helpful for you to decide whether you want to buy the bike or not.

    A very good bike i like it with good bhp

    Riding experience is awesome with good handling even at the corners, edges performance of bike is also very good having good bhp more than other bikes and displacement is also more than other bikes of same range and the top speed of 125 km per hour service cost is quite costly rather it is best bike in 180 cc and better than most of the 150 cc and 160cc bikes

    Performance of bike is very awesome

    0-100 km in just 12.7 second

    The result at the end it is best bike in under 1 lakh with great performance

    some how mileage gets down if u miss its service

    guys if you determined in taking apache just buy but tvs tyre is not good, tvs service is worst, vibration is higher so that your bike nuts become lost quickly, not suitable for long drives and good points are cheap, value for money, good pickup, good sound and less maintenance as you know spare parts are cheaper than Honda and Yamaha, quality wise good.

    Buying experience was a bit dramatic. I live in bhubaneswar, one day i went to the oldest tvs showroom here & bought rtr 180 .While coming from showroom with my bike i heard an unnatural sound , i thought it natural and ignored that. My another friend has already got an apache 180 .Then i consulted with him & he told me that it's not natural something is wrong then i went to showroom and they replaced my silencer , carburetor & when they told me that are will replace the fuel tank as well then i got angry & told them i want a whole new bike . Then after 4-5 days of hip-hops i got a new one . That's all about my buying experience.

    riding is good at all for small as well as long drives but when any ladies sit in the rear seat they feel very disappointed because as we are in Indian ladies have got their traditional style of sitting.

    no doubt about the looks . It's just stunning, only impressed by the looks i bought it.Performance is not that great. Mileage should have been at least 50 because we are middle classed people.

    in service centre when the see its free service they treat the bike like a toy .They just do nothing.Just clean the bike & tight the knot bolts only .And if we demand they change the oils.

    pros is the looks from front rear need to be improved.

    cons are the mileage, breaking only .

    I bought this apache 180 v2 the new one 2014. Have rided 40000 kms so far. I cannot fall in love with the bike.. Bike doesn't give good chemistry.. Bad controlling.. But the sound is phenomenal can never hear this sound from any other engine.. It revs urs heart but doesn't follow while we ride. Have reached 138 km speed max when bought newly.. Now only 116 km.. Bike shakes too much.. Makes me feel scared even while reaching 90.. Not a good ride in traffic nor highway. Bike doesn't stand out. I m sorry.. Positive is less.. Riding position is not comfortable.. Bike looks sexy when it's parked in side stand.. Overall not a good buy..
