Q. Which bike will be best for me TVS Apache RTR 160 4V, Gixxer SF 150 or NS160. I want to ride city as well as weekend trip on highway and I want good millage too?
  • RTR 160 4V is the best in class if money is not a problem. I chose SF over RTR because at that point of time the ABS was only offered by the Suzuki. Go for the NS160 if you want value for money and ease of service. Engine and ride quality will definitely be better in the other 2 though.
  • All are well equipped and good performers on road when it comes to fit and finish, mileage- gixxerLower end Performance- RTRHighway cruising - the frame and chasis is better in ns200
  • You can go as per your choice All those are good vehicles.

  • I was previously driving Discover 125. I was in search of a new bike. I was a bit confused between Honda Hornet, Yamaha FZS v3 and Suzuki Gizzer SF. I saw all the 3 bikes in the showroom. Hornet was not so eye catchy. So I rejected Hornet. Then I choose FZS v3, as I have heard Yamaha bikes have very refined engines. I have also test rided Gixxer SF 150. Once I saw a person parking the FZS v3 outside and it was looking so u**y after riding for sometime. Then I went straight to Suzuki showroom and booked the Gixxer SF 150. I have choosen Gixxer SF over FZS as it also have some additional features like time, gear shift indicator and also the sexy look. Whereever I goes, all people stares on my bike.Seats space: I am having a small kid of 4 yrs. There is enough room for me, my kid and my wife in the bike. We have travelled 160 kms at a stretch without any problem. Now about the performance and riding controls.Its a fun bike to ride. Performance of this bike is also very gud. We can easily cruise over 80-90 kmph without any stress to the engine. But I have not tried on this speed. Riding control is also very gud. We can easily maneuver in city traffic without any stress on your body.Milage: I got mileage of around 55-56 km before first servicing. I am not an aggressive biker. I takes atmost care of my bike. I kept speed within 60-65 kmph. Now have done my first servicing now. Serviceing cost is also cheap. I got a bill of Rs. 699/- which includes synthetic oil. After servicing I have not rode much. Will check the mileage and update. And now regarding the ABS noise. I have seen some persons complained about the noise in the ABS. But frankly speaking I am not getting any annoying noise from the ABS during hard breaking. I have checked multiple times. May be this was coming in some of the first batches of the bikes. I had purchased the bike on 13th Sept., 2019.

  • I’m using Suzuki Gixxer SF Fi ABS since 27th Sep 2017, about (38000km) and the bike feels so amazing to ride and confident in cornering that it makes you push it more. And yes, of course, the bike is awesome for touring long-distance while continue riding. The last tour which I completed on it is from India to Nepal 4 days tour covering about 1800 km and guess what no back pain no discomfort “I ride the bike all alone. (Tour was of 29 Dec 2018 to 01 Jan 2019)Mileage with power great combo. As we are maintaining the speed of 85–90 km/ hrs and my Gixxer never disappoints me in mileage, power, comfort and style. Whenever we were stopped by Nepal Police they get excited about my Gixxer like it is some superbike for them an awesome experience. The route in Nepal is made on valley so power is required to maintain and my Gixxer never disappoints me.

  • Pros -- Butter smooth engine and shiftingMost powerful 160cc Dope firing as compared to other 160cc bikeLow maintenanceGr8 suspensionTVS remora performers well on dry wet roadsGr8 avg 45kmph Color schemes 💯🔥Braking is quite good ... Now comes wid ABSCons ---The way they hidden Bike wiring is improper. they should improve that .. RPM meter fluctuates between if throttle held 6000-7000Ignition key switch, fuel tank cap quality should be improvised Issue with battery within first year. replaced within a year in warranty.

  • It's very powerful bike in 160cc class in naked street bikes,but it will be good if they offer dual channel abs as optional and also 6th gear is little draw back for such a nice machine hope they add these features in next upgrade, And over all this bike is a perfect monster on streets with 16.1ps and best in class 16.4nm torque that can be very easy to flip in city edge to edge and great performance on highway tooGreat bike for its price point

  • I have used more than one year,Pick up and speed is high compared to other 160 segment bikes.And this weight also high it helps to take more than 115-125 speed without shaking in ride.Look is better semi sporty look. Maintenance cost also normal. While riding i felt like a horse rider and its brakes is normal.

  • Bought it 1month ago. As it is in running-in period I haven"t pushed it hard( maximum 5-6k RPM and 60-65kmph) good acceleration(pick-up) mileage right now is approx 40-43kmpl and engine is refined, no harsh vibration only slight buzz at around 6k RPM and engine heats a bit in traffic but as it is a new engine it"s acceptable. Seating comfort is good for rider and pillion, my mother had no issues, braking is firm on front brake a bit progressive on rear it will get better after 300-400km, tires provide good grip. A fun to ride machine tvs did a good job.
