  • Expert Hi,
    In the range mentioned,Bajaj 180 CC would be the best choice.
    Answer by Shiva Shankar on Oct 3, 2009

  • Hi Prashant
    RTR180 is a powerful bike. I would luv to go for it for the sheer performance. Though its negatives are small pillon seat and vibrations which can be overlooked.
    Bajaj 180 is also a good bike but there is still scope for improvement. AFter sales service of bajaj is better than TVS. Also Bajaj 180 is more value for money.

    My personal choice is RTR180. Check the after sales service in you area.

  • Hi Prashanth,
    looking into your quest, I would definitely suggest a pulsar 180. But take into consideration your height, and physique. In my view, Pulsar 180 requires a better physique, whereas RTR180 gives a sporting athelete look for slimmer shoerter guys. both are unique in their technos and just check for service support in your locality. also I suggest that you try Karizma and CBZxtreme. they are good and CBZ costs less than 70K.

  • Surely go for pulsar 180 because it not only got style it has power better handling. The new pulsar 180 ug 4 has also got wide tires as well as two piece handle bar as well as everybody knows that pulsar is immortal.Ithas a resale value also so go for it u wont feel regret.

  • Hi Prashant. In my opinion, TVS Apache 180 would be a great choice as it is a complete performer with a top whack of 126 km/h. Pulsar 180 is good but the TVS 180 beats it in terms of performance. FZ 16 is an underpowered bike in my opinion and doesn't even fall in the category of the 2 above mentioned bikes. Ride Safe.

    Answer by Abrar on Aug 27, 2013

  • This pulsar 180 ug4 is the best upgrade in pulsar upgrades. This was possible as we know bajaj is now sharing bussiness with ktm. I am a person who never put my hard earned money on anything before i have surveyed extensively. My requirements are simple and straight, I wanted muscular looks, top end speed of 120kmph, decent milage. I wanted the bike for daily commute and for performance I will be picking up 400 honda or yamaha in 2013. I had short listed rtr 180 and pulsar 180. both the bike are almost on par with each other, rtr has few plus points over pulsar and pulsar has few plus points over rtr. As rtr is 10 kgs less in weight and 1 nm more torque it is quicker than pulsar. Pulsar on the other hand is rock solid no discomfort even at 120kmph +. Rtr has vibration issue and further more looks small even though houses powerful engine. Rtr is 3kmph faster than pulsar and 5 kmpl less milage than pulsar. so i decided to pick pulsar as am a guy on slightly heavier side and to my personality pulsar looks good. I am very happy with my black pulsar180. Rtr is also very good bike.
    We all guys should never fight just because we have owned any particular bike every bike has puls and minus no bike is perfect. Its just the matter of requirement. If we really want performane then its Hayabusa or R1.

  • surely go for rtr 180.
    it is the good perfomance bike.
    milage low but comparing to style and riding it is good than pulsar...

    Answer by Ganthu on Mar 9, 2015

  • apache rtr 160 is good choice

    Answer by Vsandhu on Sep 21, 2016

  • Guys pulsar is a good bike in handling & mileage..but when it's come to power,style&performance..just go for RTR APACHE...but one problem is vibration in rtr ..I have Apache rtr.
    Answer by Khushvant on Feb 4, 2017

  • If you are looking for High Performance you go for RTR 180 cause it got 17.03 Bhp @ 8500 rpm where pulsar can make only 16.8 Bhp @ 8500 rpm well vibration depends on its weight.
    Answer by Kanu on Feb 15, 2017

  • I have a apache rtr 180..

    Answer by Prabu-GSP on Feb 18, 2017

  • Yesterday I took test drive of pulsar 180 and rtr 180 There is no way pulsar can even come close to rtr in handling and power. Pulsar 180 front and rear disk brakes are bad
    Answer by Amit Mehra on Feb 22, 2017

  • no pulsar is always the best for speed watch its pulsar 350 model. it is awesome you will lve it racers...
