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.

  • I will pick apache rtr 160 4v among these bikes because of its performance, comfort, mileage is average, and looks of this bike. Apache is surely one of the best looking bike in 160 cc segment and most powerful too. And also it is the most value for money purchase among these bikes.

Q. Which will be better between Apache RTR 160 4V or Fz-fi(3.0) in terms of build quality, mileage and performance?
  • Mileage is better in fz it comes upto 55 kmpl and has a very stable control where as Apache is not worth for ita price ... In today's time people prefer mileage over power yes fz is under power but not disappointing. So my choice will always be fz
  • Yes so very true. In today's world people prefer mileage and not power that is why more and more powerful bikes are getting produced and 100cc bike market is on a sharp decline..
  • Both bikes are made of fibre...and in both milage and performance apache is better

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) ... šŸ˜„šŸ˜„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... šŸ˜Š

    Incredibly smooth engine 

    Bajaj Pulsar N160 is the heaviest bike in the segment and the engine is most refined and is incredibly smooth. The new five speed gearbox is so smooth and get a very responsive engine that gives me a effortless riding in the city. The low and mid range performance is amazing and is easy to use with 100 kmph of speed but the price is high. It gives me around 45 to 52 kmpl of mileage and it impress me with the great performance and it can be used to touring as well.

    the most attractive thing on road 

    The Bajaj Pulsar N160, with its 164.82cc engine, offers a slight power boost over the N150. It is decent for city rides with good , though not ideal for high speeds. It delivers around 45-50 kmpl in the city and comes with features like LED headlamps and digital instrument clusters. Comfort-wise, the split seat and handling are satisfactory, but some feel the suspension is stiff on rough roads. Safety features include disc brakes with optional ABS. While it's stylish, affordable, and fuel-efficient, it might not suit highway enthusiasts extreme power or high speeds.

    The Thrill of Owning the TVS Apache RTR 160 4V 

    Six months and 6,500 kilometers later, my TVS Apache RTR 160 4V has been a great purchase. With a 17.63 PS power at 9250 rpm and torque of 14.73 Nm at 7250 rpm this beast has made every ride exhilarating. Its handling is spot on thanks to the well balanced chassis and the smooth gear transition making me feel in total control at all times.But it is not without its flaws. The seat could do with more cushioning for better comfort on longer journeys. Additionally the hustle and bustle of the Indian roads, I find the fuel efficiency approximately 45-50 kmpl a bit underwhelming.
