TVS Apache RTR 180cc the Menace

As we eariler reported, TVS will soon come up with a 180cc version of flagship product apache RTR. Codenamed as the menace, the new apache RTR 180cc would come with few cosmetic upgrades. But what’s more exciting will be the new powerful 180cc engine.

TVS has earlier said that it would introduce the ABS (Anti-lock Braking System) in its forthcoming powerful bikes.  However the new apache RTR 180cc menace will not have ABS as it will push up the price.  The proposed 200cc version of apache RTR might come with ABS. TVS will launch the scooty streak in September and the apache RTR 180cc Menace might hit the showrooms in October or November.

  3. @vinkal, there is no press release as of now, but we r assuming that the bike may be out by november and 200CC in 6-7 months from that… Sudhi

  4. i would like to have the top speed of apache 200cc to exceed 150kmph AND ALO HOPES THAT THE MODEL AND DESIGN OF 200 IS TOTALLY DIFFERENT FROM 180 AND 200

  5. i would like to have the top speed of apache 200cc to exceed 150kmph AND ALO HOPES THAT THE MODEL AND DESIGN OF 200 IS TOTALLY DIFFERENT FROM 180 AND 200 AND ALSO HOPES THAT IT WILL BE VERY SMOOTHEST BIKE WITH VERY GOOD QUALITY OF SILENCER WITHOUT NOISY AND BUZZY.

  6. hope dt apache 200 is very smoother than rtr 160 and also hopes that it achieves the top speed greater than 150.i request u to get 6 gears in 200and also hopes that it will be launched before march of the next year.but in rtr headlights needs adjustment and improvement,so i hopes dt the model,design is totally different (such as the headlight and taillight) from rtr menace and also hopes dt IT CONSISTS OF XENON HEADLIHT AND TPS(throttle position sensor) system and ALSO HOPES THAT IT CONSIST OF BLUISH OR GREENISH LIGHT IN SPEEDOMETER . I also hopes that it has the dimensions greater than 180.and also hopes that the bhp of 200 is greater than 25 and it achieves the acceleration of 100kmph in less than 8 sec and 60kmph in less than 3 sec.and it has the power:weight greater than 150.i hopes dt the indicator of 200 is also LED and it has six gears,and it has double disc brakes on the front tyre like on hayabusha.i also hopes that the power:weight is greater than 150. Please change the Rear Shok absorb in 180 and 200,because Presently I used Apache RTR160 &the Bike Rear Shok absorb not work in Good.Pulsar Shok absorb Is very good,But Bike Is not good.

  9. Hi, I think that height of Apache bikes are a little less, if its height can be increased it would no doubt be one of the best.

  10. Yawn…. TVS is making people wait…. :( Just release that 180 NOW… :) Even the FI came out late… Why TVS is always late with their Launches…???

  13. Hello guys!! i learnt that Apache Menace( 180 cc) will come with semi-full fairing exposing a part of engine!! the engine layout will be 180cc, single cylinder, 18 bhp and the engine will breathe through a fuel injection….. you could expect the bike with rear mono shockabsorbs, fully digital disp,… more over the front and rear discs will be a standard one… it will bear a price tag aroung 80,000 INR… more over company is working for 200cc version also…. 200cc will come with ABS

  14. Happy new year guyzz…are these just rumours? when are the new bikes going to be launched..? 180cc and 220 cc..?? no competition for pulsar 180?? till then.. :(

  15. TVS APACHE RTR 180cc sis Best compitetior for Pulsar…. Want to Buy Apache RTR 180 before Mar 2009..Ca you confirm when it will be launced… Regards, Rajesh Kumar Sharma

  16. The apache rtr series is more focussed towards middle class hence tvs is struggling with internal issues(price of rtr 200 estimated at INR 1,23,000. sales research guys are not agreeing with pricing, hence the delay).Both rtr 180 and 200 are ready.Development rtr250 is almost complete.(My uncle is in charge of R&D department in T.V.S.)

  22. Hi, I don’t know why TVS Products specially bikes are not doing well in Indian market. even with so nice features good luck to Menace180&200. TVS should TIE up with some company to produce multiple cylinder bikes in 250cc to 400cc. specially engine technology

  29. It was some sort of excitement locating your site yesterday. I came here just now hoping to find out interesting things. And I was not let down. Your ideas upon new tactics on this thing were topical and a fantastic help to me and my spouse. Thank you for creating time to write down these things as well as for sharing your notions.
