You are totally wrong in your final verdict. Apache RTR pushes out 17.03 Ps @ 8500 rpm greater than Pulsar by point values. Also Apache RTR has a torque 15.5 Nm @ 6500 rpm greate than 14.22 Nm @ 6500 rpm of Pulsar 180.
Moreover Apache RTR possess higher "peak power to weight ratio"

Apache RTR 180 is quicker than Pulsar 180 in acceleration and speed. In addition, every auto verdict is aware of Pulsar Speedometer error whi.ch shows an incorrect greater value by 4 to 5 kms

Please be discrete while giving verdicts. You can check authorized sites or the official websites Pulsar and Apache sites to check parameter values.

Bajaj Pulsar 180 bike is the best in all aspects especially in its speed and safety factor. You can go for Bajaj Pulsar 180 bike.

Dear all who got the no 1 sports bike in India yes definitely pulsar so whatever.....may be it got a better pickup but in speed pulsar is always ahead and who needs pickup I need speed......jub speeed pakdega to pickup kahan darkar hoga

Guest Author: Prasant25 Mar 2015

The Pulsar has 10kg more weight than Apache so just do one thing reduce 10kg from pulsar and then go for pickup!!

Guest Author: debashish28 Apr 2015

I feel Apache is better because its drive chain is not producing sounds like the Pulsar does. You also get a rear disc brake which is absent in the Pulsar.

I have recently ridden on both of the bikes. I am in the favor of buying the Apache RTR 180 as I immediately sensed that it is a far better bike than the Pulsar 180.

Guest Author: Vicky23 May 2015

I too recently been for a trial for RTR abs 160. I really liked the pickup, sound, look, mileage 40-45 and even price. But I like Fazer 2 too. Any suggestions?

I love the Apache RTR 180 abs - it is a smooth ride!

The Bajaj Pulsar 180 ug4 has more power and balance as compared to the TVS Apache.

Me and my friend both bought Pulsar 180 & Apache 180 4 years back. Now I get mileage arround 45 in city and 49 in high ways, while he gets just 35. Pulsar still sounds good in performance and maintenance side compared to the Apache. So go for Pulsar as it has good life and less headache!
