    apache cant beat yamaha

  • By aswin, February 8, 2009 @ 1:19 am

    yamaha has high pick up but apache also has high pick up.because with pulsar 180 we cannot catch apache has such high pickup.but its speed is less than that of yamaha.

    Hi all,

    as comparing tvs with yamaha is ok but what i want to say is that yamaha has new technologies in its bike where as the tvs has few and also the yamaha is a 17 PS bike and where as apache is only 15.2 PS bike however you cannot compare rtr 160 with yamaha but u can compare it with karizma and pulsar 220. And i am sure that the Menace is going to beat yamaha r15,karizma and pulsar 220 cause Tvs is launching its new bike which is rtr 180 menace and it is powerful than the other bikes. But as i said that the competition is always there in the market you cannot predict which bike is coming next so lets see what happens next as of now i am keeping my finger crossed hope to see new bike powerful bikes in the indian market.

    Good Luck.

    hey guys…i own a rtr and i know what an r15 is…r15 is better than the rtr but u cant call tvs a shit cause they are giving all they can for the price range.and they are better than the others .tehy havent kept their racetracks for timepass stuff…they actually use it to the most.u cant get better 150cc + in india than rtr for that price …u people being indians find indian products shitty…its sad to know that.

  • By vishal, January 9, 2010 @ 5:11 am

    There were many interesting comments but the truth is that the R15 is a superior bike …. But the RTR has the best initial so the R15 cant touch it for the first 7-8 secs … but once the R15 crosses the 7000 rpm its bye bye RTR.
    Its Yamaha boys its gotta be worth the cash…

  • By rajat, January 19, 2010 @ 7:21 pm

    hey guyz i want to tell u a common thing dat wo kitna bhi bara hojaye uske niche he rahega…so dnt compare r15 with dese yaar…dey r gud but desi wise…dnt forget r15 is d racing god…and it has proved its potential in d racing circuit….so stay away…its d fastest with d most fastest lap timer…

    Hi Friends,

    i purchased a Apache 180 recently, it has no defects in pickup or mileage.A very wonderful mileage and pickup,style and many more……..

    But wen comparing to R15 it is having equal bhp of 17 and greater cc of 180 , but in style and look it can never beat R15………..

    It is advisible to buy RTR 180 wen comparing the price ……

  • By Gautam., March 11, 2010 @ 9:18 pm

    Hey guys, listen to me,
    stop compare RTR 180 with R15 because the both bikes have there own story. I’ve a RTR 180. You can’t imagine its power untill you ride the bike. In our country the urban roads are not for R15. If you want speed with the capacity of riding in urban area, you must choose RTR 180, but if you want speed without the smoothness of riding in urban area you must choose R15. I know that R15 has a good looking body than RTR 180, but who cares, RTR 180 has the speed which is unbeatable by R15. You also can’t compare the comfortabe of RTR 180 with R15. I know that R15 is also a better bike but RTR 180 is the best. Every bike in the world is not free from difficulties, there are something which disappointed to some customer. It is true for all the bikes including R15 and RTR 180. So you must choose you dream bike according to your test, not according to others comments. If you really dreamt for a specific bike you must buy that. That all………….

  • By AASHIS, March 13, 2010 @ 8:10 am

    again another monkey came wid da rtr180….its true tat bandar kya jane adraak ka swaad….same on gauttam…if ur sayin rtr180 has unbeatable speed then ur wrong definetly no doubt…why ur tellin things jus opposite god knows…i dnt think u ve ride r15 for free run…..u know da differences…ride r15 at 100kmph and rtr also at 100kmph…differences is r15 stays stable n comfortable n u so u dnt feel like ur in speed ,,bt in rtr due to its sound n vibration u feel like its in speed bt this iz jus an illusion……thiz is da reason why people like u says rtr iz betta than r15….

  • By AASHIS, March 13, 2010 @ 8:12 am

    well have u watched the track recors gap betwn r15 n rtr180….if not then watch it rtr fan gonna down

  • By AASHIS, March 13, 2010 @ 8:15 am

    r15 can be compared wid only p220dtsi….other indain bikes have no perfomance to compete wid it…………………….if u want speed n betta pick up then go for r15 blindly

  • By Vinay soni, March 16, 2010 @ 2:13 am

    Apache is Indian test , I love its pic up, I touch 130 speed easily,
    Ab is se tez chalake kya ooper jana hai,

  • By abbaas, April 15, 2010 @ 6:01 am

    no guys it’s totaly wrong comparing the rtr with the r15 as
    they have a huge gap in price so differ in qualitites
    everyone one knows yamaha has always been the racing
    gods r15 is untouchable by any bike whether its desi pulsar
    or the huge karizma but rtr is the best bike in the loe price

  • By bijaybasy, May 13, 2010 @ 3:36 am

    r15 is advance in technology and even beat p220 in speed. so i think apache rtr 180 sucks in speed and also in riding position. r15 still 150cc beat p220 which is really surprised me. no other 150cc can compete with p220. so better 2 think 2 say anything about r15. i love r15

  • By Abhimanyu, May 25, 2010 @ 2:11 am

    Apache sucks. People who call r15 a bad ride r da ones who cnt afford to buy it. N if u want mileage buy a crap bajaj discover ,rtr is betr in pickup b’coz r15 has good power delivary above 7000rpm, trust me guys i have almost done a phd on r15, but cnt tel u evrythin coz i m using ma mobile intrnet

  • By ashwin, June 13, 2010 @ 1:21 pm

  • By Kailash, October 8, 2010 @ 4:30 am


    I own a Apache 160 , you cannot compare R15 with Apache,

    R15 is a race bike and its the fastest in India , Its a fact and no one can deny it.

    But other bikes also are good in their own price range ,Apache has great pickup and a good ride , its engine is very good, For a 70k Apache is best !!!

    So do not compare R15 with Apache and do not call Apache as Shit or anything as it is an Indian product and its damn good for us.

  • By akshay, October 22, 2010 @ 12:56 am

    what iwant to say …apache is best beacause u get many features in only rs.62,000…… compare R15

  • By ronaldshalo, October 27, 2010 @ 4:46 am

    No can beat apache rtr 180 if u want a proof then
    simply race with any rtr 180 riders so you can understand what the machine is…go ahead guys

  • By Bijeet Gogoi, October 31, 2010 @ 2:32 am

    Well agar koi keheta hain ki uske paas jo bike hai wohi best hai to yeh baat galat hai. I have a R15, so definately mai bhi yahin kahoonga ki R15 best hai par nahi, just recently i have rode a rtr-180, and guys you can’t belive that though its an indian made and R-15 is a japanese one, the pickup of rtr-180 is far more better than R15, though top speed of rtr-180 is less than R-15 but overall handling, mileage and value for money is best than a R-15., Ab main pachtaa raha hoon thodi din aur rook jata to aaj mere paas rtr-180 hoti.

  • By ayush sood, January 6, 2011 @ 9:10 am

    i have apache rtr 180 and its a good bike.i had also been a ride through r15 of my friend.its ok in ride but in pick up no one can beat apache rtr r15 is having some sports look nd its nice body so people likes to attract over it but if u wnt’s to go with body then ninja 250 is the best.again when we come to rtr and r15 . i had gone through a race with my friends in which i was riding my rtr 180 nd other bikes r15 nd pulsar 180 was there .the apache was on great lead as what because of it pick up nd it was the first.rtr is also a racing bike .
    so at last i shud say tht apache rtr 180 is the best more in cc,mileage,pick up etc.and less than price of thar r15 too .

  • By shivaraja, February 11, 2011 @ 6:03 am

    hey guys
    i dont want to destroy one to build another but i love my apache rtr 180 its beautiful design and power is great . i feel like controlling a bull wen i ride it but the r15 is also great it is as capable as an 180 cc engine and is also great. my view is both are same like gods and tvs and yamaha are different religions .so hit the showroom and book ur favorite one

  • By stunter, August 30, 2013 @ 7:41 pm

    apache rtr 160 is the beast in pick up , mileage , looking and firing the any byk will can’t beat the firing awesome exactly racing Byk coming to r15 its cc is only 149.5 and small look AND tyres too small just it looks only style that’s it not control in the top speed and mileage is waste firing little bit

    the byk with all good capabilities is rtr 160
