Recently Asked User Questions

Q. Which bike is better, Unicorn or Raider?
  • Both the bikes are good in their forte. The Honda Unicorn has always been the go-to bike if you were planning to buy a 150cc commuter. The BS6 update has given the bike a larger motor while retaining the dynamics of the older bike. It still remains a well-rounded motorcycle, but the BS6 update has come with a hefty price hike. On the other hand, TVS’ has certainly come back to the 125cc segment with a bang with the Raider. It’s fun to ride, feature-packed, feels rather premium and is well priced too. It is definitely one of the most well-rounded offerings in the 125cc space. Moreover, we would suggest you to take a test ride before making the final decision. Follow the link and select your desired city for dealership details.Read more -TVS Raider 125 First Ride Review.

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.
