The TVS Apache RTR 180 gets driven by a 177.4cc spark-ignition, oil-cooled, four-stroke, fuel-injected mill mated to a five-speed transmission that can churn out a maximum power of 16.79 PS @ 8500 rpm and a peak torque of 15.5 Nm @ 7000 rpm.
The power output in Apache RTR 180 has increased by 0.17PS, and the maximum torque has remained unchanged but achieved 500 rpm earlier.
TVS Apache RTR 180 gives a fuel efficiency of 45 Kmpl. It can sprint from 0 to 60 Kmph in under 4.5 seconds, 0 to 100 Kmph in 14 seconds, and achieve a top speed of 123 Kmph. The fuel injection system renders the sports naked bike a torque-assist feature known as ‘Glide Through Technology’.
The motorcycle sits on TVS Motor Company’s patented double cradle split synchronised stiff chassis, developed using multi-body analysis to enhance the stability by 25% and render optimised vehicle layout and superior riding dynamics.
The suspension duties get performed by a telescopic fork at the front and monotube inverted gas-charged shock absorbers with spring aid at the rear.
A 270mm petal disc carries the braking duties at the front and a 200mm diameter petal disc at the rear assisted by single-channel ABS.
TVS Apache RTR 180 rolls on 17-inch alloy wheels with a 90/90-17 inches tubeless tyre at the front and a 110/80-17 inches tubeless tyre at the rear.
The Apache RTR 180 features a similar beast-inspired halogen headlamp that gives it an edgy look and offers brilliant luminosity and a long-range of light coverage.
A pair of LED daytime running lights also come just above the halogen bulb. It has a pair of side indicator lamps fitted to both sides.
Like Apache RTR 160 2V, it comes fitted with a black visor for added style and better aerodynamics. The semi-digital instrument cluster comprises a digital speedometer, an analogue odometer, and a fuel gauge.
The handles get equipped with many stylish switches that turn on/off the headlight, taillight, side indicators, etc.
The muscular 12-litre tank and its extended shrouds give an aggressive and sporty look to the RTR 180. The leaping horse logo of TVS and red decals of RTR look attractive on the tank.
The sporty mudguard protects the rider and the engine from mud, while the chiselled engine cowl does the same style.
The bike has a step-up seat that gives a comfortable ride for both the rider and the passenger. It distributes their weight evenly for a better riding experience.
The stylish tail features a sleek grab rail and taillight that give a sharp look to the bike. The slight upswing exhaust pipe has a chrome plate that looks good. The seat height of 790 mm is practically accessible for many riders. The footrests and rear footpegs keep the feet of both the rider and the pillion.
TVS Apache RTR 180 comes in only one variant.
It comes in three colour options:
- Pearl White
- Gloss Black
- Matte Blue
Here are some features of TVS Apache RTR 180:
Halogen headlamp with LED DRLs: The beast-inspired halogen headlamp renders brilliant light at night, while the daytime running lights render extra visibility.
Semi-digital instrument cluster: The semi-digital instrument cluster consists of a digital speedometer, odometer, clock, and fuel gauge.
LED taillight: The bright and multi-colour LED tail lamp illuminates when brakes are applied.
Side bulb indicators: The side lamp indicators indicate the turn the rider has to take.
Petal disc brakes: These are lighter and dissipate heat more efficiently due to a reduction of more than 1/5th of their surface area. It’s the first bike in the country to have them and still does.
Single-channel ABS: The front wheel gets equipped with an anti-braking system.
Pass Switch: This switch enables the rider to signal before overtaking the vehicle in its front.
Glide Through Technology: This technology enables the bike to crawl at a lower speed and provides more low-end torque.
TVS Remora Tyres: The grip of TVS Remora radial tyres is perfect and enables the bike to negotiate slippery roads and sharp turns.
