You may go for a wider tyre but upsizing the size of a tyre is increasingly becoming an obsession with people to create an added visual appeal to their bike. Moreover, It is advisable to go for an upgrade anywhere between the 3% margin for better performance and handling, increased grip, and creating a visual appeal. Do take note that upsizing the wheels and tyres may decrease the fuel efficiency of the bike and may result in a speedometer error on the bike if upsizing is not correct. So, we would recommend you to go for a 130/80 -17sized tyre for better performance.

While TVS has done well in reviving the Apache RTR 160 2V with a fuel-injected motor, it could have done better by offering it new bodywork and additional features, something it has done with the Apache RTR 160 4V. On the other hand, while the Bajaj Pulsar NS160 BS6 might not have many tangible features to justify the price hike due to BS6 norms, it more than makes up for it with raw performance. In fact, it is the most powerful motorcycle in its segment, making it ideal for enthusiasts who prioritize performance over anything else. Moreover, we'd suggest you to go for Bajaj NS 160 for its raw powerful engine and capable perimeter frame. For better understanding, we would suggest you to take a test ride and then take a final decision. You can find dealers here.
For this, we'd suggest you to get in touch with the nearest authorized service center in your city as they would be able to assist you better with the details. Follow the link and select your desired city for service centers.
It's Always Apache 160 4V.. There is no doubt in it....a Common NS rider may say that NS is the best... but a most of the Best Riders who have NS bike also told that 4V is best from their Experience , in both Performance and Comfort...
In some aspects there is neck to neck competition , but you will take bore mm of Apache is 62 mm , no other 150or160 bike getting that much of bore , in this segment i think it is very best option to take.
Both 160s share the engine from their 200cc seniors. Apache has fi and carb, NS I think has only carb. NS is bit lighter in weight. Apache has little powerful engine. choosing between 2 is tricky but I think Apache is better between the by only .5 %.
I would say it's all upon your riding experience..so I suggest you to take a test drive..I am 5.6 and feel comfortable in riding the bike and also I anyone sits on the pillon .I feel much comfortable in riding as the height decreases because of the weight..
Is it suitable? Yes it is. I'm 5.6 and i have to tip toe. You'll feel it difficult in the initial stages but once you get used to it it'll be fun. You can reduce the seat height a bit by 10mm by removing the rubber dampers under the seat.
My height is 5.6 and i suggest dont buy ns 160 if u have same or less height...baki bike is good but not for short riders.
There should be no criteria as if u control the bike in traffic and in slow motion there will be no issues. U need to develop skill to handle it if u r short
Yes, certainly. But what I mean by the question is in start stop traffic will a short rider be able to handle the bike and other important doubt is the riding position. As it is bulk in size, can a short rider find a comfortable position ?
If u r 5.3 than u will definitely face problems in traffic. But if ur 5.5 or above u can opt for ns 160 and about the riding position it's definitely comfortable and size doesn't matter if u have good riding skills...
