    Project is to build a Bobber/rat bike by adopting it in some old thumpers frame..

    Any guidance would be appreciated.

    It is etched on engine cylinder generally, or you can check rpm - gear - speed with a RTR 160 or 180 to confirm your query

    yes I was expecting the same but I thoroughly checked it but was unable to find any clue grooved on it.. but I am so obsessed with RTR that as soon as I saw it I just bought it from the yard seller.

    I will share close up pictures when I go to home today.. may be there is some clue..

    Hi dude,

    I dont know about RTR's but will try to help you

    By observing the pics, it has 14T Sprocket which the RTR 180 will be having according to our xbhp threads

    World of Sprockets!

    TVS Apache RTR 180



    If the previous owner haven't altered the sprocket, it might be RTR180.


    Also from this site, http://www.motoroids.com/reviews/tvs-apache-rtr-180-facelift-review-specifications-pics-top-speed-price-details/
    the block was embossed with D6, the same on your engine can be seen.
    http://www.motoroids.com/wp-content/...ew-Pics-83.jpg
    Mostly yours is an Newer 180.

    In some pics for RTR 160, i think there will be specifcation of xxx cm3 (cubic cm) below TVS logo which is missing for an 180.
    like http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/attachments/motorbikes/1262372d1405512197-sad-story-my-tvs-apache-rtr-2014716125847-medium.jpg


    and also 160 has a single round/cirlce logo (having numbers in it) where as the 180 has two of it (above D6).

    Another thing you can do is to get hold a damaged RTR160 piston(i think its easy to find it) at any mechanic shop and open your bikes engine head and compare it directly with just looking at diameter of both pistons. It will reveal whether its an 180 or 160.. Hope this helps

    @apachefan I paid 6500INR for this.. it was basiclaly a burnt bike completly burnt from feul tan and fenders.. but the engine was intact and saved completly... you can notice the burnt carburator falnge which gives clues of fire..
