Recently Asked User Questions

Q. I am confused between TVS Apache RTR 160 4V and Yamaha FZ S V3 under 1.20 lakh. Please suggest me one. Their is a saying the brakes of Yamaha FZ S V3 are not up to mark. What is the reality - Gixxer 2019?
  • Even I too thought of choosing Apache only, but cost wise not that much diff bro.. only very less price diff, but durable is Yamaha only , even after 5 years of riding Yamaha bikes, it won't go down and won't get vibration and all, but Apache and pulsar will give more vibration.. I was having TVS bike oly before my Yamaha FZ-S V3.. performance also fine only...Before going with Yamaha FZ-S V3, I have checked a list of bikes like RE Thunderbird, RE Bullet classic, Apache 160v4, Apache 200, Yamaha FZ-S v2 and V3, Bajaj Pulsar 160, even Honda Hornet also I have tried. Decided Yamaha FZ-S V3 finally.. took around an year (From Jan 2019 till Nov 23, 2019) ... 😄😄Moreover Apache is Indian made so cost must be lesser than Yamaha which is getting imported and tax duties must be high.. I didn't meant to say Indian bikes are cheaper and Yamaha is good bcos of Foreign made.. but it's a fact... If you consider there is some value for engine and durability of it, go for Yamaha or else Honda bikes than TVS and Bajaj bikes... 😊
  • TVS APACHE 160 4V IS BEST
  • Agreed
Q. I am 41 years old, 107kg 5ft7in. I need a bike for city rides and occasional intra city rides. A big priority is bike should be good in handling and braking. My priority is also for a family bike with rear seat comfortable for ladies sitting. My earlier bike was a Yamaha FZ-25, which is an overkill for my purpose. I don't need a sports bike, but a good handler and a torquey bike, since I weigh 107kg. Another priority is least maintenance and good service. My eyes are on (1)Apache 1604v or 180cc BS6(2) Royal Enfield Classic 350 (used)(3) Honda Hornet BS6Is there any better choice for me? I don't really want Royal Enfield. But the comfort and ability to take family on that motorcycle in slow speeds makes it interesting. I had owned Bullet Electra 4S in the past and am afraid of maintenance and reliability issues of RE. I plan to buy in few months and need a safe bike with good handling and braking. (I had a bad accident with FZ25 - I will say, the main reason is that bike has a cruising speed above 90kmph and you shouldn't really ride in that speed, especially in the city.) That's why I'm looking down to Apache's which seemingly have good handling and cruising speed may be 50-80kmph). Please help.
  • The best bike as per your requirements will be Royal Enfield Classic 350. It delivers decent power and offers great comfort for both pillion and rider. And now, it is available with the option of Dual Channel ABS to. However, it attracts a bit more maintenance cost as compared to other options. Apart from it, you may look for Hero Xtreme 160R and TVS Apache RTR 160 4V. Talk about getting it right. The hero has managed to tune the brakes on the Xtreme to near perfection. It offers adequate brake bite and feedback through its levers and allows you to slam on the brakes and bring the bike to a dead stop a couple of meters before the RTR 160 4V. The difference in braking distances could be attributed to the RTR’s extra heft. Moreover, its brakes are known to lack progression and feel spongy which doesn’t inspire confidence. Even the ABS calibration on the Xtreme works better than the RTR. Pillion riders will find the Xtreme’s raked seat a little harder to get onto compared to the RTR’s flatter single-piece unit. It’s also shorter which ends up feeling a bit cramped. Moreover, reaching out to the bike’s grab handles, which are positioned under the rear quarter panel, feels a bit unnatural and takes some time getting used to. The RTR’s seat is long enough to easily accommodate the rider and pillion without throwing a fit. It isn’t as sharply inclined as the Xtreme either which makes it a lot more comfortable. The grab handles are positioned more conventionally and have more surface area for better grip. So ultimately selecting one boils down on your priorities. You may compare all these bikes accordingly. Do take a test ride in order to get better clarity. Check out authorised dealership details.
  • Thanks Zigwheels author for the suggestions. Yes, I agree Royal Enfield is a good choice, had owned the old CI engined Electra 4S earlier. The maintenance part is the issue. Also, the cost is almost Rs2 Lakhs for new one. I will either go for RTR1604v or RE Classic 350. I had rode Apache RTR 180 for 11 years. Wonder, which one is better RTR 160 4v or RTR 180 2valve model?
Q. I am planning to buy a bike next month. I am confused between Apache rtr 160 4v, Hornet 2.0, Honda Unicorn and FZ/S-Fi V3,. Which one should I buy if my priorities are low maintenance cost, good mileage and good riding quality (comfort and handling). I will be commuting to office daily with frequent rides to native village which has bumpy/rural roads with this.
  • I have a similar requirement as yours (in the question), and have test-ridden hero Xtreme 160R, as well; along with the options mentioned above, this is what I noted. With the reviews and verdicts from almost every major auto channel, it was an obvious run. To my surprise, I couldn't find the 'sporty' (rear set foot-pegs) on the Apache RTR 160 4v as comfortable as other bikes - however, TVS's offering was the best in the segment, before the BS6 norms pushed in, due to lower kerb weight and the power figures. The ride quality and handling are superb, plus a decent fuel economy is a pro.Given that I found the ride a bit too tiring for my wrists, and a Honda showroom was next in line, I drove the Hornet 2.0. You hop on to its saddle, and you feel a certain correction in the posture - an upright, wide handlebar setting, with mildly rear-set footpegs, make you stay easy, even at higher speeds - the suspension setup is on the firm side though - the higher cost and the lower fuel economy are the only cons that I could measure at the moment.Next, Hero extreme 160R was a similar offering, just with a refined but slightly weaker engine than the Hornet 2.0 - you miss the pull from the engine to go up and rev it higher - the bike is nimble and a very capable handler of bad roads too. Fuel economy is quite similar to TVS's just the braking improves with the lower weight figures.For the final option, I went in to drive the FZ-S V3 - It was a DELIGHT - you sit even more so relaxed than on any of the previous bikes, and the ride quality is plush! Given that I was riding it right after the previous two, the motor felt far too refined for even the Hornet to match. Better economy and festive deals made it a better choice for me - given the quality, comfort being better than what I had tested and the cost was considerably lower than the other options.The only question that I have in mind is 'How long is the FZ going to continue in India?'; given that spare parts vanish out of Indian markets, as soon as the bike is discontinued.In my opinion, if you prefer an easy-riding style and economy and comfort are a priority, go with Yamaha's 'Lord of The Streets'. Hornet 2.0 also makes a better option if the budget allows, too.

  • All these bikes are good enough and easy for pocket to maintain. The TVS Apache RTR 160 4V has been the benchmark when it comes to 160cc motorcycles. 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. The overall package and reasonable pricing make it a truly value for money motorcycle in its segment. In nearly every aspect, except maybe ergonomics and braking, the Yamaha FZS-FI v3.0 fails to impress. While its motor offers better fuel efficiency compared to the previous-gen model, it lacks grunt. If you have around Rs 1 lakh to invest, you're better off with other options. if you are looking for better power performance, build quality, good features and a more stable bike, you may go for Hornet 2.0. It is comfortable enough and gets a refined and smooth engine too. If we talk about Honda Unicorn, it 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.You may compare all these bikes accordingly. Do take a test ride in order to get better clarity.
