    The Good, the Bad, and the Bumpy 

    The power delivery is smooth and for city rides it feels just right. Plus its iconic design never fails to make a statement.The ride quality could be better. On rough roads, the suspension feels a bit on the stiffer side.

    Great Bike 

    The Ultraviolette F77 has undergone significant changes since our last ride in 2019. The Bengaluru-based startup used the pandemic as an opportunity to revamp the motorcycle, now featuring a battery pack more than double in size, a new chassis, a more powerful motor, and a considerably higher price tag. With customer deliveries about to begin, we had the chance to ride this bike and assess its place in the market.

    Great experience  

    Pulsar 150 is a bike which has all the qualities like all ages can ride this bike and I purchased Neon black and red in 2019 ABS in front wheel and getting butter smooth gear box and engine. The service is excellent and the mileage is also good and it running like a champ and the pickup is good but the instrument cluster has old design. The sound is amazing and the torque is next level and is a perfect value for money.

    Better performer than Pulsar N160 

    It is the fastest bike in its class with really fun to ride and very well equipped but the engine performance is better in Pulsar N160. The suspension setup of TVS Apache is more better that absorbs road bumps and it feels like lighter and quicker although the Bajaj ride is on the firm side. TVS Apache is better bike than Bajaj and the top end model of this bike is feature rich and is a good performer bike.
