The Apache 180 ABS is one the best naked bikes from the TVS stable and has been developed keeping the global racing culture in mind. The bike looks very aggressive due to its sharp design elements and gets LED light with pilot lamps. The tank, engine and tail cowls get aerodynamic race designs and are decked up with a decent amount of decals. The instrument console gets blue backlight along with speedometer and tachometer and sports a carbon fibre finish.
The Apache 180 ABS is powered by a single cylinder four stroke 177.4cc engine that develops 17.03bhp at 8500rpm and a peak power of 15.5Nm at 6500rpm. The engine is mated to a five-speed gearbox and the company claims a top speed of 124kmph. It gets telescopic forks at the front and monotube inverted gas-filled dual shocks at the rear. The bike features a 270mm petal disc with anti-lock-braking (ABS) at the front and a 200mm petal disc with ABS at the rear that delivers excellent braking. It’s one of the few motorcycles in India whose ABS can be switched off for those who love to perform stunts.
