Expert`s comment:

In the range mentioned,Bajaj 180 CC would be the best choice.

Answer by Shiva Shankar 10 October 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.

Answer by Rahul 10 October 2009

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.

Answer by Udhaya Shankar 10 October 2009

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.

Answer by Abhijit 10 October 2009

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 08 August 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.

Answer by Zubair Sharieff 11 November 2012

surely go for rtr 180.
it is the good perfomance bike.
milage low but comparing to style and riding it is good than pulsar...
pulsar 180 having chain spracket problem and gear box problem...but apache have nothing in it except vibration..that will also solve above 5000 km of good service..i having rtr 180 now nly i got before 4 months..ssooo move to rtr

Answer by Srinath 11 November 2013

i have RTR its performance good than pulsar...go for RTR

Answer by Jai 10 October 2013

Answer by Rahul 02 February 2014

hi friends apache is waste bike. tvs not improvise his bike dn't know why. bajaj is ok when rider should maintain it. honda and yamaha gives good quality superb engine but some disadvantage in specifiacation on medium range bike.... all brands are doing some business tricks that's all

Answer by Yuvaraj Chennai 03 March 2014

Answer by Ganthu 03 March 2015

apache rtr 160 is good choice

Answer by Vsandhu 09 September 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 02 February 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 02 February 2017

I have a apache rtr 180..
Its better than another 150cc and 180cc bikes..

Answer by Prabu-GSP 02 February 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 02 February 2017

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

Answer by Deepak 03 March 2017

I think pulsar is a good bike and powerful also but rtr180 is not good its vibrates more and pulsar is no.1 sports bike
