Recently Asked User Questions

Q. I am planning to buy a bike in this month, I daily commute 75 km's in rough road, I want good mileage and better suspension to handle rough road, In my mind I have three options Honda Unicorn 160, Apache RTR 160 4V, Yamaha FZ Fi V3 price is not a constraint to me. Please suggest which one is better?
  • As per your requirement, we would suggest you opt for the TVS Apache RTR 160 4V. With the BS6-compliant iteration, TVS has made sure it is still as sprightly as ever despite the slight drop in power and torque figures. Still, Apache RTR 160 4V is a brilliant offering from TVS stable and offers great ride quality, good handling dynamics, a performance-packed engine and a feature-rich instrument console. The suspension setup soaks up undulations with ease while providing a calm and composed ride. Moreover, we would suggest you take a test ride before making the final decision. Follow the link and select your desired city for dealership details.
Q. Between Unicorn 160 and Avenger 160, which one is good?
  • Selecting between the Honda Unicorn and Bajaj Avenger Street 160 would depend on certain factors such as preference of the segment, budget, features required and usage of the bike. If you are looking for a daily commuter with a much refined engine and old-school styling then you may opt for the Unicorn. Honda Unicorn has always been the go-to bike if you were planning to buy a 160cc commuter.

For a better understanding of compatibility and riding comfort, we would suggest you to take a test ride. Follow the link and select your desired city for dealership.

  • Hey riders siddharth here i would like to share my experience with ola service team.On 5th feb 2022 i got my ola s1 pro delivered.But unfortunately on 6th feb me and my dad met with an accident with our s1 pro because my dad applied the brake too hard (because he was not use to the disc brakes) and we fell on road due to which we got hurt and our scooter was also scratched on several parts (side panel, Front panel, Upper headlight cover panel) i was quite upset about the myths that ola is a new company and the service would be not up to the mark.On the next morning i called my brand champion billal regarding this but he asked me to call the service support number then i called customer care where he registered my complaint and said that our service executive will call you shortly.After an hour the service executive called me and asked me to send images of damaged parts and insurance policy.I sent him all the things and then after half an hour he called me and asked me to bring the scooter or get the rsa (road side assistance) but i preferred taking my scooter to the sanathal service centre.I approached them at sanathal and they collected the required documents and asked me to wait till the scooter is ready.On 12th feb they called me and said that your scooter is ready and you can take your scooter back.I was not excepting that my scooter will come within a week but it happened and the process was very smooth and fast each and every staff of service team was very professional and helpful at any point of time.I got my scooter and it was up to mark as expected.At last i would thank ola service team(sanket and akshay) and my brand champion(bilal) to co-operate and making the process flawless.

  • Ola s1 is game changer- ola electric has change the entire game by future rich technology they provide with these two newer version of scooter.In metro city there might be a bit problem of charging because of high rise and flat system but hyper charge stations comes first to them only.S1 pro promises the riding range of about 180 km on paper.As average daily commute of 22 kms for full 7 days considering we may require only max once in a week or more charging.

    Hemant Kumar1 few weeks ago

  • Good customer support- i booked my ola s1 and waiting for test ride in a my locality.I am impressed with specifications compare to other electric scooters.If i am correct initially ola claimed that batteries are removable, Now understand it cannot be.Initially had some issues with the website but their customer support used to give call immediately and clarify doubts.S1 pro promises the riding range of about 180 km on paper.
