Q. Apache RTR 160 4V or Apache RTR 160, which is best?
  • If you want to experience signature Apache wild and beast engine, go for Apache 160 (engine vibrations gives a raw feel to rider).If you want a more refined engine like that of Yamaha and Honda, go for 160 4v. There is not any significant difference in mileage.
  • Our suggestion would be to go for the TVS Apache 160 4V because It has better safety features and more power with a refined engine. But to know more about this we suggest you take a test ride of the vehicle and then decide. TVS Apache RTR 160 vs TVS Apache 160 4V Comparison:- https://www.zigwheels.com/bike-comparison/tvs-apache-160-vs-tvs-apache-rtr-160
  • The 4v variant is better than the older version because it has all the new aesthetics of the 200 4v including the console which is superb and looks awesome than any other available 160cc displacement vehicle in our country.

Q. Which is best bike Bajaj pulsar 150 or Apache RTR 160?
  • The Bajaj Pulsar 150 still remains a great option if you’re looking for an entry-level 150cc motorcycle. The motor offers likeable performance with a hint of brashness which made the Pulsar brand so popular among the youth, and being a Bajaj offering, it has been priced aggressively as well. On the other hand, Apache is known for its quick handling dynamics and rev-happy engine, the TVS Apache is one fun-to-ride motorcycle in its class. Thankfully, the Apache RTR 160 4V delivers well on both fronts with class-leading features. The Apache RTR 160 4V is not only the most refined RTR we have ridden till date but also one of the most refined 160cc motorcycles to be ever produced in India.Bajaj Pulsar 150 STD gives a mileage of 44.67 kmpl in city and 56.93 kmpl on the highway as claimed by the Automotive Research Association of India (ARAI). Apache RTR 160 4V gives 60 Kmpl mileage as claimed by TVS. Though we have tested its on-road performance of carburetted version and we found that it returned 50.9kmpl in the city and managed to deliver the mileage of 56.1kmpl on the highway. Mileage also depends on the riding style and how it is maintained.Do take the test ride for both the bikes to pick one satisfying your needs and requirements.Click on the given link to get your nearest dealership details: https://www.zigwheels.com/bikes/dealers
  • According to me pulser 150 is best bike as compared to tvs apache RTR 160 pulser gives best milage around 50 kmpl low maintenance cost stylish look for daily commuter. coming to Apache RTR 160 sporty bike best for long rider as well as daily commuting RTR gives milage around 45 kmpl , better braking system and its comes with single channel ABS pulser still did not get ABS in 150 segment but it will expect in April. Finally choose bike which is best suit to you according yo your hight and wieght and my final suggestions is test drive bike before you purchase it.
  • TVS and Bajaj fans have always been like the two sides of a coin none accepting the other. The Bajaj Pulsar 150 is built for the people who want a great bike for daily commute. It has the essence of a sporty looking and feeling bike and does the job easily, carrying you around town or on the highway. While the TVS Apache RTR 160 is more sturdy, fast, agile, aggressive, but maintaining practicality. Both the bikes are good but on my vote, I would the RTR.

Q. Which is the best bike between Honda Unicorn 150 and Apache RTR 160?
  • It all depends on which type of a motorcycle you like. If you travel long distances, over rough roads and still want a fuel economic vehicle go for the Honda CB Unicorn 150. It is a tall bike with a refined engine, a comfortable sitting position and has a mind boggling fuel economy. It can carry you comfortably over long distances with absolute royalty. Where as, the TVS Apache RTR 160 is a muscular bike. It is light, fast and also economical but not as much as the Unicorn. The Apache is styled well, has an insane performance for the size of its engine and is an absolute delight to ride. But the sitting position is aggressive and over long distances may cause your neck and spine to hurt a bit. So choose wise.
  • If you are looking decent style,mileage and refined engines go with unicorn. Other two bikes has aggressive looks and comes with latest techs and designs. My friends has got both Apache and pulsar they told me durability of the parts is not up to the level, in case of Honda it has better durability and engine side very smooth and refined but other two brands doesn't. If you are looking Honda bike I would suggest CB unicorn, CB Hornet and X blade. If you are looking for a latest design and technology try hornet or X Blade.
  • If you want a daily commute bike, choose Unicorn (refined honda engine with average performance and styling and good mileage).If you want to experience biking, go for Apache (mileage is lower than unicorn) but very high on performance aspect.
