Q. Between V-15 & Apache/ Pulsar/ Hornet, which one to buy??? Because I am ok with the look of V-15, but performance wise I am confused.
  • Compared to other bikes in this segment its pretty comfortable. I've personally done many long rides on my V15, even a 24 hours ride non-stop in one go, did not face any problems as such. The handling is way better than other bikes because of its seating position. The bike is easy to maneuver in traffic. It is worth for the price as a daily commuter. The performance is not that great as compared to apache, hornet and pulsar. Every single bike has its own pros and cons. No bike is perfect.
  • V15 is an average bike. Performance wise Apache & Hornet is far better. If you have budget of hornet or apache 200v or ns200 go for them.
  • V15 performance wise poor like others

Q. Which is the best Apache 160 4v or pulsar ns 160?
  • The Pulsar NS 160 ticks all the right boxes when it comes to style, performance, ride and handling, save for refinement. The new NS 160 is a worthy contender and makes a strong case for itself in this highly competitive 160cc segment. 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 and a price tag that starts at Rs 81,490 (ex-showroom for carb, single-disc variant). However, it doesn’t feel as confident under hard braking as the Bajaj Pulsar NS 160 or 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. Do take a test ride in order to judge your riding comfort.

Q. Which is best apache 160 4V or FZ S FI 2.0?

  • 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. In this case, Apache RTR 160 4V delivers well on both fronts with class leading features. On the other hand, the second generation FZ-Fi already feels dated. It is the least powerful bike here though it can still hold a candle when it comes to dynamics. It though is in desperate need of an upgrade - both in terms of styling and performance. Out of the two, we would suggest you to pick for Apache 160 4V.
  • Fzs is more reliable for longer rides as it gives more comfortable riding position.. Apache on the other side gives more aggressive riding position which makes it difficult to go for longer rides. Otherwise both bikes are good. I find Yamaha more reliable because she never gave me any problem and she is fun to ride.
