Recently Asked User Questions

Q. I am bit confused between Apache RTR 180 and Hornet 2.0 which one should i go for can anyone share there reviews?
  • Selecting between the two would depend on certain factors such as budget, performance, preference of the brand, etc. TVS Apache RTR 180 gets a peppy engine 177.4cc single-cylinder fuel-injected engine that makes 16.79PS of maximum power and the bike is a great handler too. However, the bike boasts an old design and with the BS6 updates the bike remain a fan FAVOURITE for the time being. On the other hand, Honda has unleashed its brand new Hornet 2.0 which is a performance-oriented naked bike with great styling and thriving mid-range performance. The 184cc single-cylinder air-cooled mill churns out 7.27PS at 8,500rpm and 16.1Nm at 6,000rpm. However, with its price tag, Hornet 2.0 locks its horns with the likes of TVS Apache RTR 200 4V, Bajaj Pulsar NS200, Royal Enfield Bullet 350, etc. Moreover, we would suggest you to take a test ride for a better understanding of comfort and compatibility. You may click on the link and select your desired city for dealership details.Read More: - All The Juicy Details Of The Honda Hornet 2.0 - [Do The Hornet 2.0’s Rivals Have What It Takes To Stir Its Nest?@https://www.zigwheels.com/news-features/news/honda-hornet-20-vs-tvs-apache-rtr-200-4v-vs-bajaj-pulsar-ns200-specification-comparison/39583/
  • Go for 180rtr has got oil cooling and better low end torque.Oil cooling helps for non stop touring. Hornet 2.0 is over priced and underpowered for a 185 cc Engine. Honda yamaha suzuki makes their engine smooth by reducing compression ratio and making it underpowered and sell it overpriced. Some Indians who has inferiority complex to buy Indian brands will fall for the japanese. Don't support this marketing gimmick of honda yamaha suzuki. Buy Indian brands brother. Why wasting your money to make the Japanese rich.
Q. Is GTT mode is available in any of Honda Bike like Hornet / Xblade or any other ?
  • No. the Glide Through Traffic technology is not there in Hornet and XBlade or any other Honda commuter bike.
  • Hornet 2.0 is having GTT feature.
Q. Which is the best bike among Xtreme 160R and Hornet 160R - XBlade?
  • Honda has discontinued the CB Hornet 160R and introduced an updated version, the Hornet 2.0 with a bigger 184cc single-cylinder air-cooled mill that makes 17.27PS at 8,500rpm and 16.1Nm at 6,000rpm. On the other hand, Hero Xtreme 160R is the most exciting motorcycle to come out of the stables of Hero MotoCorp in the recent past. It has the styling, performance, and dynamics to take on the competition. If you are looking for a bike with excellent handling dynamics, decent performance and a frugal engine, then the Xtreme 160R would be a good option. 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.Read More: - Hero Xtreme 160R Road Test Review: The New King Of The 160cc Segment? - Meet The Honda Hornet 2.0: Honda’s Biggest Made-In-India Motorcycle

  • TVS Apache RTR 180
  • An excellent bike, With magnificent led head lamp where one can fall in love, The sporty monster look which assures racers as well as for the riders.The most important rear wheel, 13/70 dimension.Xblade vows itself with dual powerful disc brakes.The elegant colors highlights the charm of the body of the vehicle.One could be in love with the dual exhaust which gives riders a jet plane engine sound, Anybody could be mad after this.Personal experience about the powerful abs of the vehicle is massive, Which doesn't allows the riders to fall anyhow.Xblade by its name itself for any rider could be tearing of the road.Talking about the mileage and the pick-up its just awesome, Could be described as the rider could be missed in flick of the finger.

    KUNDAN KUMAR few weeks ago
  • Honda X-blade is super looking and stylish vehicle. It gives good grip on-road and a decent mileage too.Although the BS6 variant is a bit more pricey, I was able to buy it because of really good financing options and thorough assistance from VFM Honda, Bangalore.

  • I am really satisfied with these bike all I want is few upgrades in these bike for example USD Suspension, Mono Sock, wide Swing Arm, Rare tyre atleast 130, and at last 6th gear may be not for direct selling but a choice for upgrades which will make a bike looks more muscular and safe for top speed ridder since 180 has no upgrade since 2012 in looks. So There fore I hope and pray that TVS will be kind enought to note down my demands Thank You Lots of love From Kanu Kalai From Tripura

  • Very light and full control in riding. Instant pick up make it more reliable. If someone use it single hand then you never loss its feel alike JUST NEWI am using it since Oct 2015. From my point of view, a customer who buy it I suggest you that when you buy it you ride it full speed and long run with two persons in order to make it more efficient for future (please ensure traffic rule and own safety). And light service every two months on 1000kmWith regards Vijay Kumar Nain

    Vijay Kumar few weeks ago
  • 121 km /h is top speed i gained but i am sure that 135/hour can gain for suitable road.Safest bike i ever experienced.Stability & less vibration are the main attraction.Cornering is really heartfelt & also assure co driver comfort.Pls do service between regular intervals & use lub only for chain sprocket.Dont allow to wet.Keep neet & clean always.Karma returns.

    Antony P few weeks ago
  • I was thinking to buy this because this bike has dual-channel abs and this bike has a very good fuel capacity and good average also.The bike looks very stylish and what a biker wants is all there in this bike.Mainly this bike has a comfortable seat.The headlights of this bike are really good.But timely maintenance of the bike is always required.

    Hemant Kumar1 few weeks ago
  • Look my way of riding may not be a biker type. I generally ride pretty safe and till now my highest speed is 98kmph for 3 secs. But for my daily commute I found this bike pretty useful. Though after 5 years I am having an issue with my brakes. Loosing confidence on them.
