Launch of TVS Apache RTR 180 Menace

TVS Apache RTR 180 Menace— a menace to Bajaj Pulsars and Yamaha FZS?

The all new 180cc engine bike from TVS Company will kiss the Indian roads sometime the festive season of 2009. Christened as Menace, this sports bike has whole new looks with stepped-up performance.

Designed along similar lines of previous TVS Apache RTR models, TVS Apache Menace will steal an envying glance from the passers by for the no-front-scoop fairing. The bike gets a sportier look with part of exposed engine. The new TVS Apache RTR 180 Menace will be available in three colors of sporty yellow, flaming red and matt grey.

Running on 180cc engine TVS Apache Menace is expected to generate power of 18bhp and 16Nm torque with a top speed of 135kph. It comes with multi-plate clutch system, 5-speed gear transmission, and has an air-cooled, 4-stroke, mono cylinder 180cc engine. The engine will be powered by a fuel injection system and will have a greater compression ratio for enhanced combustion as well as fuel optimum utilization.

The all new dream bike TVS Apache Menace will come equipped with a double-cradle chassis and a mono shock suspension. The bike comes with disc brakes both front and rear ends and it is one enhanced safety feature. With Apache Menace one can also expect a longer wheelbase and even digital speedometer.

Expectations are that the engine will produce least vibration at high speed as TVS Apache Menace will be equipped with a single lever. This performance bike might surprise all with a new exhaust system to become more environment-friendly bike. You never know until it’s launched though.

Apache 180 Menace

The price of TVS Apache RTR 180 Menace is expected to be around Rs.80,000 and will compete with the likes of Yamaha R15, Pulsar 200cc and will boost up bike market share for TVS in the coming months with larger market capitalization.

  23. sontosh

    no doubt that apache 180 is very good bike, but there is vibration @ high speed , but pulsar 180 can reach @ its top speed without any vibration.

    • Sravan

    TVS Launch a very competitive Bike launched after launching a bajaj pulser180 it a my favourite bike I am loving it

  32. rohith

    hi guys i bought two bikes one for me im 19 doing my engineering 2nd year and one for my bro who s 18 doing his 1st year engineering in two different colleges of bangalore i bought the bikes recently in oct 2009 after lot of surveys where i needed a bike which has power,looks and affordable mileage at around 37-42 after all i test rided 13 bikes 0f 150 – 180 cc class and then stuck to two bikes i.e. tvs apache rtr 180 and the beast of indian market bajaj pulsar 180 2009 as i use both the bikes one day i take apache the other day pulsar so by my experience i wrote this comment pulsar provides 17.02 ps power and apache 180 provides 17.3 ps therefore apache is a bit more powerful than pulsar and apache has a better torque when compared to pulsar which is better for city rides…… whereas at high speeds 110+ pulsar has better road grip than apache as it has mrf zapper tubeless whwereas apache has got tvs tyres which has bad road grip pulsar being heavier has better stability on road apache being lighter is hard to control at high speeds apache ‘s height is very less compared to pulsar it s like a 125 cc bike that way the advantage in apache is that it s got rear disc brake but what s the use the tyre also must be solid right to withstand that effective breaking….. pulsar 180 is without kick start it s awesome to look at and don’t worry u wont run out of battery as it is 600w and almost equal to maruthi 800 s 1200w as this is a bike for this the battery is more than enough pulsar s suspension lasts longer and has wider front forks for better handling in turns one more disadvantage with apache is that it s rear seat is very small making it uncomfortable for the person sitting at back whereas pulsar has got split seats so more comfortable to sit at the back my pulsar 180 is givin me a mileage of 38-40 in hard bangalore city traffic conditions of bangalore and also mind i rip a lot and apache is giving me a mileage of 34-36 for the same type of ride so guess this is the single regular user stats of the bikes pulsar is better for mileage also and also note pulsar 180cc 2009 looks same as p200 and bajaj is in the 180cc segment for a decade or so nearly so i suggest u ll to go for pulsar 180 rather than apache rtr 180 and guys for stunts pulsar 180 is way better i rate pulsar-9/10 and apache-8/10

  33. Vijay

    I have Apace 180 RTR – White Horse bought on this new year 1.1.2010 ..

    Everything good.

    And regarding Vibration –

    upto – 59km/hr – no vibration
    60 – 69 km / hr – little vibration
    70 – 90 km / hr – no vibration
    90 – 111 km/hr – no no no Vibration . Just feel as flying.

    The only one disadvantage – loding grip in cement roads.

    Had one small accident when going in the speed of 25km/hr last week. But I am totally safe. Proud of the design. Just a scratch in the doom.

    Mileage – 40 – 45 / ltr

    And look now words to beat the White Apache RTR 180 – simply looks like a living White Horse …

    Go Go Apache …
