Q. What's changed in Apache BS6 and when it will be launched?
  • The power and torque have been reduced in the BS 6 version. The look has been facelifted and gives more premium feel to the machine. Headlight is upgraded from halogen to full LED which has better luminance. There is no carburetor variant in BS6 as Fi is kept standard. Price for dual disc variant has got up by around 8000. Exhaust has been made more crispier which resembles to KTM. The electric start mechanism has improved, you hear almost no motor noise on pressing the start button.The engine is more tuned to race and RTFi (race tuned fuel injection) has been added. Overall BS6 variant is 30-40% better
  • BsVI models launched after April ,2020. Changes like carburettor get replace by fuel injector catalic converter to reduce smoke . Abs is mandatory for all bikes.I have this model already.
  • Jab launch hi nahi hui to apke pass kaha se aa gaya BS 6 model?

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.

  • 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.
