    Love for the design and different look 

    I love the bike just because of look and mileage and people mostly buy for this bike for the design and look and is also affordable but is not very powerful bike. This bike is great for the middle class boy for the regular use and the gearbox is very good and the seating position is very comfortable and comes with the lot more space but is not a value for money bike. Comfort is totally enhance in this bike and can go for a long rides with this bike and comes with the single channel ABS.

    The bike's lightweight frame and responsive handli 

    I had my KTM 125 Duke for about a year now and it has been quite the nimble companion on city streets. With its 125 cc engine that puts out 14.5 HP, it makes zipping through traffic a breeze. The bike's lightweight frame and responsive handling make it a joy to ride in the urban jungle. I also love the sharp, aggressive styling that turns heads wherever I go.However, it's not all smooth riding. The KTM 125 Duke struggles on highways. The engine feels strained above 80 km/h and long rides can become tiring due to the lack of power.

    Testing Out the TVS Apache RTR 160 4V 

    Having driven the TVS Apache RTR 160 4V for a few months, I am quite pleased with its performance. The upgraded 159 cc 4 valve engine is a delight, providing better power and torque than its siblings. The ride quality is superb all thanks to the optimized chassis and suspension setup. On city roads and highways alike, it proves to be a smooth operator.On the downside, the fuel economy is a bit less than I expected, I average around 40 kmpl.which, although decent but it is not the best in this segment.

    indian bike and average perfoemance 

    The one thing that makes TVS Apache RTR 160 4V unique from others is it offers high power with a bike that looks stylish. The driving public appreciate the compounded aspects of its smooth engine, great acceleration and agile handling, a performance standard that stirs racing emotions. With more options like LED lamps and digital instrument clusters that give volume to the modern look, is a fashionable car. Still lurking though, the few complained they found it uncomfortable for long rides and other enhancing measures, such as wind protection, for the cruising at high speed were what they also suggested.
