Design


The styling of the new Apache RTR 180 is based on a racing carbon fibre theme. It denotes light-weight attributes and racing intent. It features a new 3D TVS logo on the tank.

It continues to feature 0-60 time recorder, top speed recorder, lap timer and service due indicator among other tell-tale signals.
