    The power output of the bike is close to the p200 on paper but rest assured it will kill the R15. Which means the p220 is also not spared. Now this is based on the tests by TVS at their test facility using their team riders and not some uncles who race on the street.
    The RTR has always been a pocket rocket among the current 4-strokes and a bang for the buck.
    A few pointers why the RTR 180 will be better than the competition is,
    Pricing, will be priced cheaper than all the performance bikes and just a few bucks over the FZ.
    Highest torque and power to weight ratio.
    light handling and an awesome tracktool
    Very good fuel efficiency
    And offers the highest VFM
    The RTR 180 has a good package to literally kill the p200/p180/p220/R15 and maybe the RTR 160 FI itself. The RTR 160 FI and RTR 180 wont have too much of a price difference and buyers will sure be confused to pick their ride
    Am happy!

    It will not be launched before June according to Showroom people. I guess June is a slow season for bikes at that time TVS will find it easy to sustain the market as the demand of the RTR180 should be very high

    Errr, i just cant agree to this. But i do agree with thee pulsars.
    All the TVS 4-strokes have been very well sorted and NVH has been on par with the rest of the jap makers. Lets not talk about the bland Hondas, but TVS having adopted a lot of the Suzuki culture, the engines will typically have a mix of refinement and a bit of the crude feel. Ride any Suzuki and you'll know what I mean. They are never butter smooth, but no grinders either.
    The less said about Bajaj, the better.
    Ride a very well maintained Fiero and you'll know if a TVS is grinder like a pulsar or not. FYI, the Fiero's engine was optimised right here at Hosur by the TVS team.
    The RTRs have indeed been vibey and thats coz of the short stroke nature. Ride even a CBR150 or an FXR 150 and you'll why a short stroke cant be like an R15. There is a lot of inertial load on a short stroke crank due to its higher revving nature.
    The RTR 180 has the Fiero stroke which is a lot more balanced and I have personally done an RTR 180 conversion on an RTR 160 more than a year ago. The vibes instanlty came down and the engine was a lot more relaxed.
    The RTR 180 is in its final stages of testing and the NVH levels are close to the original Fiero. The valve train has been reworked and clearances have been changed. So no need of assuming that it will be a grinder. It will be close to a smoothie

    Thats pretty much Nice to hear ----- well so any way the engine and other Performance related things are known to eveyone....so we can expect a good R-1-5 beater .....

    Lets come to the console part RTR has one of the best Digital COnsoles - which incorporates almost everything that more than a Bike needs of.......

    Now what can we expect in the new RTR 180......... Expectations plz................

    I beg to differ. Read the last couple of pages on the Apache RTR/FI thread. It paints a different story from Ownership point of view

    You referring to the data loggers rite? Really fun feature to have! Proof for all your performance claims!

    A few things I would like to see which the 160 lacks are self canceling indicators, side stand light, gear position indicator & a gear change rev light. Oh & a programmable 0-any speed timer !
