We recently reported about the TVS Apache RTR 180 ABS being very close to launch, after we read facebook updates by TVS talking about the ABS System. Well, the Apache ABS is indeed very close to launch as the company has started inviting the media to test the upcoming variant of the Apache in Chennai. The Apache 180 ABS is similar to the non-ABS variant, other than the fact that it features ABS and DC electricals. Due to ABS, the Apache 180 has proximity sensors on both front and rear wheels to trigger the system. It also has a button on the dash to toggle the ABS system on/off and the instrumentation has a light which tells the rider about the status of the ABS system. Checkout the video below to see how the ABS system on the Apache 180 works.
