Selecting the right vehicle would depend on several factors such as your budget preference on the segment, features required, engine options, brand preference, etc. The Pulsar 150 continues to be the most popular 150cc motorcycle that offers a decent combination of power, features, and efficiency at a good price. On the other hand, the Apache RTR 160 4V comes with plenty of power on tap along, it still remains one of the most exciting motorcycles to ride in the 160cc segment. It offers a very good ride quality and it has a smooth engine which is good for the daily commute. Moreover, we would suggest you to take a test ride before making the final decision.

You may go for a big sized 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. Moreover, we would suggest you have a word with the nearest authorized service centre of TVS in your city. As they may assist you better.
Though i own 160 4v, i cant say about honda in question... 160 with a kick start is basic motorcycle but in past 3 years i found basic service is average of 1000+ or - but additional cost occured like shockers broke, silence inner muffler blew,parking lights issues which till date are not fixed and few other knick knacks happened and my running is just 20km per week hardly reached 12k. So my guess is yes 160 4v might b a little higher higher in maintenance considering its a 3 year old only
For this, we would suggest you to get in touch with the nearest authorized service center of the respective models as they would be able to assist you with the exact maintenance costs. Follow the link and select your city accordingly for service centers.
TVS Apache RTR 160 4V has an oil capacity of 1200ml and the best suitable oil grade is SAE 10W30. We wouldn't recommend putting in less engine oil as the bike wouldn't return efficiency. Moreover, we'd suggest you have a word with the authorized service center of TVS in your city.
Definitely NOT. Correct quantity of oil recommended is 1200 for draining and anything less than that will cause the oil to heat up more.
Definitely the bike is capable of doing those distance, it comes to the rider and his willpower, unless you have a goal and covering long distance within short time might be less tiring for that higher cruising speed is required here the wind is not in favour to you as it is naked bike. so anywhere between 80-90 will be ideal for you. be scared of crosswinds from cars and big lorry that pass by you either it will push or pull you , at the end of the day not careful enough could make you smile in a photo frame to eternity
It is. I have completed 485 KMS without any stops except at the petrol pump and 2 tolls.I didnt face any issue, the mileage was less at around 28-30kms (But, it was because I was cruising at 107 km/hr and occasionally riding at 114, 118 and 126 km/hr ;)
1000km, with short rest intervals is good, any bike can do that, but you may need to switch the seats to little more comfy as the seating for rider in my opinion isnt made for long distance
So my issue has been resolved by the service center guys recently, of course after having a lot of issues. Thankfully one of the technician was aware of this issue. So the fix was basically a software update of the FI system. And after that the bike has become more smooth and not more engine shutting off. So if you are going to the service center with the same issue and the technicians are not getting the issue exactly then you can suggest him to do this. There is something like a 4 port usb under the seat which the technician connected to to something and updated it from his mobile only.. If there is no issue anywhere else still your bike is facing the same issue then you can try this.
Even i am facing the same issue and my bike is only 9 months old. After recent servicing i am facing this and it is not even like every time i am facing this issue. The bike engine shuts off while deaccelerating and change gear even if the clutch is pressed. Service center guys don't have any clue as the asked me to change the clutch cable. Any suggestion would be really helpful.
I have the same issue...i have visited the showroom...they will update fi software but still i am facing somtimes the same issue of switch off... Even my bike display meter is somtimes stop working....but the technician didn't find out the proper solution of it... Can plse suggest me from where i can fix it. If authorised service centre didn't find out the way tosolve.
