Q. I have TVS Apache 180 but now I change my bike into R15 or KTM RC 125 for look wise and mileage wise please told which bike I would like to buy?
  • If you buy KTM accidents may happen..!! WTF logic is this?So you mean if you buy a R15 then you will not be prone to accidents? Would you guarantee that? Stfu, it doesn't matter if you buy a KTM RC 125 or a Hayabusa. It all depends on the rider himself. Just because KTM bikes are superfast in the initial pick up that doesn't mean they are prone to accidents. I own a Duke 390 and I haven't been in an accident at all. It all depends on the rider, how he rides and how he controls.if you are commenting on a question, then comment neutrally without supporting any particular brand.
  • Yeah but if you wanna steal the show and get some female followers, like a stud, then its better you opt for any of the KTM bikes.i dont possess any KTM Biked, but I'm still a big fan.All my friends own KTM bikes and I've driven them, so from that i got a alot of experience and owning a beast is the best thing.
  • Buy R15 because it is cheap and fast like Ktm and takes only little petrol.If you buy Ktm accidents may happen!!!!!
