Q. Which is good to buy between Apache 160 4v and Hornet 160R?
  • Hey Vishal...To answer your question, its obvious to get confused with variety of bikes available in Indian market. As per choices you mentioned in your question, on first spot I will mention Hornet 160R and Apache 160 4V and on second spot its Yamaha. Lets first talk about Apache 160 4V. Completely raw power, good performance, good torque and power combination, good aggressive styling, everything is good but I still trust on Honda engines for reliability. Even when it comes to after sales network part then Honda is all over this country and that is the only advantage Honda is having. About Yamaha, in this 150-160 cc segment..it is something really falling behind. Less power compare to other two machines from your choice list. So I would say, If you need reliability with decent performance and wide service network go with Hornet or if you need some power packed action without thinking its resale value go for Apache 160
  • In the form of the CB Hornet 160R, Honda now has a competitive offering in the premium 160cc motorcycle segment. It looks the part with its sporty styling and chiselled lines. Performance of the motorcycle is also admirable with respect to its rivals and it offers decent fuel efficiency as well. It seems that Honda have got it right the third time around. On the other hand, if a bike has to survive in the cut-throat 160cc two-wheeler segment, it needs to be competitively priced and pack enough performance to keep riders happy. Thankfully, the Apache RTR 160 4V delivers well on both fronts with class leading features at its price. However, it doesn’t feel as confident under hard braking as the Honda Hornet. That said, 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.

Q. Honda hornet or Suzuki gixxer which one is the best???
  • The Suzuki Gixxer’s engine and suspension have been developed under the watchful eyes of the same designers who also produced the Suzuki GSX-R series. This is a worthy city-based sporty 155cc bike with distinct design and enviable refinement. You would like it for its sporty and rev happy engine. The suspension setup is slightly on the stiffer side but that gives it an edge over the Yamaha FZ. It also feels nimble to flick around in the city traffic, mainly due to the riding stance it offers. On the other hand, in the form of the CB Hornet 160R, Honda now has a competitive offering in the premium 160cc motorcycle segment. It looks the part with its sporty styling and chiselled lines. Performance of the motorcycle is also admirable with respect to its rivals and it offers decent fuel efficiency as well.

  • Both the bike come with an option of single channel ABS but among these, Honda CB Hornet 160R would be a better pick as it gets better power and engine refinement and nice braking too.
