Apache RTR 180 ABS became the first ever Indian made bike to feature ABS technology. TVS hopes this variant will add more credibility to the brand Apache. TVS Apache RTR 180 has new animalistic face with aggressively styled headlight and visor. Its new pilot lamps combined with day time running LEDs can easily turn heads on road. The racing decals start from the tip of its front fender and goes all the way to its rear cowl. The golden finish on front forks and brake callipers adds premium touch to this bike. TVS has penned ABS on its large tank shroud which is the only difference between this bike and the regular Apache. Its black colored alloy wheels look extremely sporty with white racing strips. TVS Apache RTR 180 has new engine cowl which makes it look aerodynamic. TVS has revised its rear panel which now has prominent sharp lines on it which goes well with its split grab rail which has been a unique characteristic of Apache. We wish if it had split seats also like its rival Bajaj Pulsar180. At the back, it has a sharply pointed rear fender which gels well with its clear lens side indicators and dual colored tail light. TVS Apache RTR 180 has a circular pod for its analogue tachometer and other LED indicators. TVS has smartly carbon finished this instrument console. It sports a full size LCD for its digital speedometer, odometer, trip meter, clock and fuel gauge which uses blue color for illumination. The instrument panel features a new switch just above the speedometer to switch off the ABS in this bike. This LCD displays last three recorded 0-60km/hr timings and top speed. TVS Apache RTR 180 has very short but fatty clips on handle bar which fits in your palm easily and offers strong grip. Apache offers a sporty bend forward riding posture which improves its aerodynamics. Due to extension in its wheelbase, TVS has re-arranged the foot-pegs in this bike. Now, they are more convenient than before and help your knees to fold at right angle. The bike uses light weight foot-pegs and pedals which can be used easily. Unlike Hero bikes, you don?t have to fold these foot-pegs while using its kick. Its single-toe gear shifter adds sporty feel to this bike and you feel more confident with firm grip around its fuel tank. TVSApache RTR 180 new bike comes with a wheelbase of 1326mm which is 26mm more than the regular Apache. This change along with inclusion of ABS has improved its ride quality significantly. The handling is still very accurate and it comes with exceptional turning abilities. It?s extended wheelbase and ground clearance of 165mm makes it much stable around corners. The best part of its riding is its braking ability which was never before experienced in its class. The ABS avoids the locking of its both wheels and thus results into controlled braking. It never skids and always gives you immense control at high speeds. It?s the best braking system ever seen in any Indian made bike. It?s available in two shades ? white and black. Apache RTR 180 competes Yamaha FZ S 2.0, Bajaj Pulsar 180, and Honda Unicorn 160.
