Indian 180CC Bikes Specs and Mileage Comparison Chart[Pulsar 180 vs Apache 180]

180cc mileage comparison
After covering the most important segments at present in the Indian biking scene, its time to move to the other segments which might not boast of many options to choose from but nonetheless have some seriously good bikes to boast about. Moving one notch higher from 150cc, we come to the 180cc segment, a segment made most popular via Pulsar and Avenger series. However, it hasn’t caught the fancy of the other bike manufacturers much except TVS Motors who has its Apache RTR 180 and recently added the Apache RTR 180 with ABS. The Avenger 180 from the Bajaj stable has been discontinued, so it doesn’t feature in this article.
Looking up from the 150cc segment is only an option for the serious bikers for whom the mileage is indeed important but they also crave for the performance. If a bike can deliver superb performance at the cost of a few extra drops of petrol then it will surely be the bike of desire. So, here in addition to the comparison of mileage, we bring you a detailed comparison of the technical specifications of the 180cc models to help you make a wise choice.
