    Recently Asked User Questions

    Q. Which bike is the best in Yamaha MT-15 Or Bajaj Dominar 250 ?
    • The Yamaha MT 15 BS6 is more than just the R15 v3 sans fairing. The naked looks sharp is light, and can be a hoot to commute. However, the compact riding posture might be a bit too tight for large riders. What is also disheartening is the poor switchgear and build quality as well as the lack of dual-channel ABS. On the other hand, a motorcycle, the Dominar 250 does one thing right -- it is fit to purpose. The Dominar 400, for example, always felt like a confused motorcycle as the 390’s motor is too manic to make for a great sports tourer. It gets the job done, but just about. On the other hand, the Dominar 250’s motor felt boring on the KTM, but combined with the comfortable tourer the Dominar is, it works beautifully. It truly feels like it deserves the ‘sports tourer’ tag. So while Bajaj might pitch it as the entry-level Dominar, we think the 250 is the Dominar in its perfect form. Though Dominar 250 is around 20k expensive as compared to Yamaha MT-15, it offers a great value at its price and a better choice too. You may compare both the bikes accordingly. Do take a test ride in order to get better clarity. Check out authorised dealership details.
    Q. Which bike to choose Yamaha MT-15 Or TVS Apache RTR 200 4V ?
    • The TVS Apache RTR 200 4V would be a better pick if you often ride in city only. It has been one of the nicest 200cc motorcycles in India. It is sharp and agile while maintaining a friendly power delivery. The lack of a sixth gear though limits its touring potential. On the other hand, if you occasionally ride on highways too, you may go for Yamaha MT-15. It is light, and can be a hoot to commute. However, the compact riding posture might be a bit too tight for large riders. What is also disheartening is the poor switchgear and build quality as well as the lack of dual-channel ABS. You may compare both the bikes accordingly. Do take a test ride in order to get better clarity. Check out authorised dealership details.
    Q. Which will be better choice Hero Xtreme 160R Or TVS Apache RTR 160 ?
    • While TVS has done well in reviving the Apache RTR 160 2V with a fuel-injected motor, it could have done better by offering it a new bodywork and additional features, something it has done with the Apache RTR 160 4V and Apache RTR 200 4V. However, given the RTR 160 2V BS6’s low pricing, it is a viable and relevant stepping stone into the 160cc segment. Also, TVS’ Glide Through Technology (GTT) makes low-speed crawling more effortless. On the other hand, Xtreme 160R is the best-looking Hero motorcycle out there. Excellent handling dynamics. One of the lightest bikes in the segment. It has the styling, performance, and dynamics to take on the competition. Both bikes deliver similar power performance but it is Hero Xtreme 160R which is more fun to ride in city. You may compare both the cars according to their variants too. Do take a test ride in order to get better clarity. Check out authorised dealership details.
