TVS Apache RTR 180 Highlights
TVS Apache RTR 180 is one of the best and affordable naked bikes in India. The Hosur-based brand has updated the motorcycle for 2019 with a slew of cosmetic updates. This includes a new white backlit speedometer with dial art, forged bar-end weights and an ‘alcantara-like’ premium seat cover. For better protection in the event of a crash, the 2019 TVS Apache RTR 180 gets frame sliders integrated into the engine crash guards. Under the skin, the powertrain and the underpinnings are unchanged. It is powered by a single-cylinder, air-cooled, 177.4cc 4-stroke engine that pumps out 16.62PS of power at 8500 rpm and 15.5Nm of torque at 6500rpm. The engine is mated to a 5-speed gearbox that allows it to accelerate smoothly while propelling it to a top speed of 114kmph. Suspension duties on the bike are handled by telescopic forks at the front and monotube inverted gas-filled dual shock absorbers at the rear. The 2019 TVS Apache RTR 180 features 270mm and 200m petal type disc brakes at the front and rear. The bike is equipped with dual-channel ABS, which is a first in the segment.

Design and Features
Sharing the same design language as the younger sibling RTR 160, the TVS Apache RTR 180 is an aggressive-looking road machine. The bike comes with beast-inspired LED headlamps with AHO and new pilot lamps. The fuel tank is sculpted to tuck in the rider’s legs. The engine gets a muscular cowl that uplifts the overall appeal of the bike. The tail cowl with tri-color insignia looks pleasing too. All the three parts engine, tail cowl and tank get decent decals that account for the bike’s plush look. The bike comes with intelligent aerodynamics that aids in performance and reduces engine heat. The rear panel of the bike has been revised, which now has sharper lines, split grab rail, sharply pointed fender with a well-placed LED tail lamp and clear lens side indicators. The 17-inch alloy wheels look quite sporty while the gold finish on the front forks and brake calipers add a premium touch to the RTR 180. It gets a semi-digital instrument console which is garnered with carbon fibre finish. There is a digital display for the speedometer, odometer, trip meter, clock and fuel gauge. A new switch to turn off the ABS gets a place just above the speedometer. The display also shows the last three recorded 0-60km/hr timings and the top speed. The right circular pod of the console is reserved for its analogue tachometer. There are six color choices (White, Black, Matte Black, Matte Grey, Matte Blue and Matte Red) for the standard variant while five if you buy the ABS variant as it does not get the Matte Red color yet.
Dimensionally, it measures 1105mm high, 730mm wide and 2085mm long. The ground clearance of the bike sits at 165mm and the wheelbase at 1326mm.
Braking and Handling
Built on the 'synchronous stiff chassis', Apache RTR 180 offers a comfortable ride to the rider as well as the pillion. There is sufficient cushion on the seat for both. The riding position is just perfect to enhance its aerodynamics. The adjustable split clip-on handlebars, re-aligned foot-pegs and adaptable brake pedal and gear levers make it up for an incredible riding experience and a comfortable ride. The bike’s suspension assembly gets telescopic forks at the front and monotube inverted gas-filled dual shock absorbers at the rear. The bike features 270mm and 200m petal type disc brakes at the front and rear ends respectively. It is equipped with switchable dual-channel ABS which is first in the segment. The 17-inch alloy wheels are shod with 90/90-17 and 110/80-17 section tubeless tyres at the front and at the rear respectively.
Safety and Features
The TVS Apache RTR 180 features ABS (Anti-lock Braking System) with RLP (Rear Wheel Lift off Protection) for enhanced safety and protection of the rider and the pillion. Both the wheels are equipped with disc brakes. The headlamp gets AHO for clear visibility. The combination of a reliable suspension system, grippy stock tubeless tyres and responsive braking system does the safety job quite brilliantly on the RTR 180.
