Watch our BS6 TVS Apache RTR 200 4V video review:
The BS6 TVS Apache RTR 180 has received its first price hike since its launch. Powering the BS6 TVS Apache RTR 180 is a 177.4cc, single-cylinder, oil-cooled engine that develops 16.5 hp of peak power along with 15.5 Nm of maximum torque. In terms of features, the bike gets ‘frown-shaped’ LED DRLs along with gold-finished fork bottles. The bike is available for sale in four paint schemes namely Pearl White, Matte Blue, Gloss Black, and T Grey. Both bikes remain untouched in terms of mechanicals. Over the years, the styling of the two motorcycles has remained untouched and that is possibly one of the prime reasons why these are still selling in decent numbers across the country.
