the beast untamed
I wanted to do quick review on the Tvs Apache RTR 180 ABS and as to why it has been first choice for me . Not much differs between the RTR 180 and the abs versions cosmetics wise . I am very concerned with specially 2 wheeler s that in rainy seasons the bike can skid and cause a lot of problems. Also uneven braking at higher speeds does result in accidents so chose the abs(Anti lock braking system) version . Compared to the bajaj bikes which I dont like as they suffer from engine noise(thanks to dtsi) apache was the best option I can go for.Generally with Indian roads in monsoons there is a high probability of the wheels getting locked which would lead to skidding of the bike whereas with anti lock braking system the tvs 180 rtr remains perfectly in control. The handling of the bike is superb at turns and you already can feel the confidence while you ride this amazing machine .On a non-abs bike the rear wheels lift off incase of emergency braking which can in turn cause you to lose control and meet with accident . Safer and secure option is to pay a bit extra and get the abs version like I did . Generallly if you are somebody who races a lot or rides above 70 should consider this option .
