Q. I am planning to buy a bike in this month, I daily commute 75 km's in rough road, I want good mileage and better suspension to handle rough road, In my mind I have three options Honda Unicorn 160, Apache RTR 160 4V, Yamaha FZ Fi V3 price is not a constraint to me. Please suggest which one is better?
  • As per your requirement, we would suggest you opt for the TVS Apache RTR 160 4V. With the BS6-compliant iteration, TVS has made sure it is still as sprightly as ever despite the slight drop in power and torque figures. Still, Apache RTR 160 4V is a brilliant offering from TVS stable and offers great ride quality, good handling dynamics, a performance-packed engine and a feature-rich instrument console. The suspension setup soaks up undulations with ease while providing a calm and composed ride. Moreover, we would suggest you take a test ride before making the final decision. Follow the link and select your desired city for dealership details.

    I own the 2019 Avenger 160 Street ABS from 1.5 Months. Looks wise it is best in its class and if you go for long ride it gives the best seating comfort. You may be thinking that It won"t go fast but I reached 120KMPH speed on it. Before the first service itself it was giving me 37+ Mileage. Yesterday only I am have done with first service to my bike and I am sure I will get 40+ Mileage. -Ve side we speak -1/ Less Power at initial gears (1/2 less power)2/ You have to take all pathholes in the way 3/ Rainy season you have to take full water on the road as the bike is with less height 4/ Length is bit more+ve Sides:1/ Comfort2/ Ground clearance3/ Mileage4/ Looks5/ Modifications you can done in n no of ways
