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. Which is good to buy, FZ Fi V3 and FZ-S Fi V3?
  • If you notice between the two there is not much of a difference because the dimensions, engine, performance, ergonomics everything is same. it all boils down to one thing, do you want a engine guard and body graphics or not. If you want then you can go for FZS Fi V3, if not FZ Fi V3.
  • Basically there is no such great difference in both.in fz s u will have a engine guard and chrome garnish. and yes if you want maate colour gofor fz s and if u like glossy go for fz
  • There is no mechanical difference between two bikes 2 segments have 3 different colours which colour u like u can bur Adding one thing matt finish colours which is offered in fzs like matt black tends to attract dust in very short time and looks dirty So went for pure black colours and I'm very satisfied
