About Apache RTR 180 ABS [2019]

The TVS Apache RTR 180 has crossed a sales figure of three million units, and it now has a 2019 model year iteration, even for the ABS version. The changes are mostly cosmetic – there are new race-inspired graphics, a crash guard with integrated frame sliders, Alcantara-like seat upholstery, forged ‘bar-end weights, and a speedometer with white backlighting.

It remains powered by the 177cc air cooled single-cylinder engine that generates 17.3bhp and 15.5Nm. It feeds this power through a five-speed gearbox. Suspension consists of conventional telescopic front forks and dual gas-charged rear shock absorbers. A rear disc brake is standard, and both the front and rear discs are petal discs. The RTR 180 ABS was the first in its class to offer dual-channel ABS, and it remains the most affordable dual-channel ABS motorcycle to purchase to this day.

The 2019 Apache RTR 180 ABS is available in three colours: white, black, and matte dark blue. It retails for a little over Rs 95,000, ex-showroom, and at a similar price you can have ABS with the following bikes: Hero Xtreme 200R, Honda CB Hornet 160R, and Suzuki Gixxer. However, all of these offer single-channel ABS, not dual channel, like the RTR 180 ABS.
