Q. I am confused between TVS Apache RTR 160 4V and Yamaha FZ S V3 under 1.20 lakh. Please suggest me one. Their is a saying the brakes of Yamaha FZ S V3 are not up to mark. What is the reality - Gixxer 2019?
  • Even I too thought of choosing Apache only, but cost wise not that much diff bro.. only very less price diff, but durable is Yamaha only , even after 5 years of riding Yamaha bikes, it won't go down and won't get vibration and all, but Apache and pulsar will give more vibration.. I was having TVS bike oly before my Yamaha FZ-S V3.. performance also fine only...Before going with Yamaha FZ-S V3, I have checked a list of bikes like RE Thunderbird, RE Bullet classic, Apache 160v4, Apache 200, Yamaha FZ-S v2 and V3, Bajaj Pulsar 160, even Honda Hornet also I have tried. Decided Yamaha FZ-S V3 finally.. took around an year (From Jan 2019 till Nov 23, 2019) ... 😄😄Moreover Apache is Indian made so cost must be lesser than Yamaha which is getting imported and tax duties must be high.. I didn't meant to say Indian bikes are cheaper and Yamaha is good bcos of Foreign made.. but it's a fact... If you consider there is some value for engine and durability of it, go for Yamaha or else Honda bikes than TVS and Bajaj bikes... 😊
  • TVS APACHE 160 4V IS BEST
  • Agreed
Q. Which is the best bike compared with Honda Hornet, TVS Apache RTR 160 4v, Yamaha FZ S 3.0 in mileage, pickup, comfort, price, service and spares?
  • If we compare Fi version of all bike then i think pickup of TVS Apache will be more, according to mileage 1st will be Hornet then Yamaha and then Apache but the difference will be only 4-5 kms.If we come to comfort i own Apache and i didnt find any problem with comfort, and for pricing you should contact dealers in the city.
  • Need comment on Suzuki introduer B6 vs Appache RTR160 4V for maintenance free spares avilable, comfort and safety. looking for my colleage going son. pl suggest

    Pros -- Butter smooth engine and shiftingMost powerful 160cc Dope firing as compared to other 160cc bikeLow maintenanceGr8 suspensionTVS remora performers well on dry wet roadsGr8 avg 45kmph Color schemes 💯🔥Braking is quite good ... Now comes wid ABSCons ---The way they hidden Bike wiring is improper. they should improve that .. RPM meter fluctuates between if throttle held 6000-7000Ignition key switch, fuel tank cap quality should be improvised Issue with battery within first year. replaced within a year in warranty.

  • 5.0

    It's very powerful bike in 160cc class in naked street bikes,but it will be good if they offer dual channel abs as optional and also 6th gear is little draw back for such a nice machine hope they add these features in next upgrade, And over all this bike is a perfect monster on streets with 16.1ps and best in class 16.4nm torque that can be very easy to flip in city edge to edge and great performance on highway tooGreat bike for its price point

  • 5.0

    I have used more than one year,Pick up and speed is high compared to other 160 segment bikes.And this weight also high it helps to take more than 115-125 speed without shaking in ride.Look is better semi sporty look. Maintenance cost also normal. While riding i felt like a horse rider and its brakes is normal.

    Bought it 1month ago. As it is in running-in period I haven"t pushed it hard( maximum 5-6k RPM and 60-65kmph) good acceleration(pick-up) mileage right now is approx 40-43kmpl and engine is refined, no harsh vibration only slight buzz at around 6k RPM and engine heats a bit in traffic but as it is a new engine it"s acceptable. Seating comfort is good for rider and pillion, my mother had no issues, braking is firm on front brake a bit progressive on rear it will get better after 300-400km, tires provide good grip. A fun to ride machine tvs did a good job.
