Cars Q&A

Hi Please suggest which bike to buy? I have short listed 2 bikes in 150 to 160 CC segment. TVS apache rtr 160 and HONDA Unicorn. I already had P150 hence did not check the new P180 (which i feel has some cool features).

First you should fix your desires about performance, sporty stylish look,milege and refinement of engine if you choose to buy a 150cc segment bike coz you should compromise in milege with this category.

I personally suggest you to buy Appache RTR 160 or 180cc.
Both are superb machines to fullfil all your desires 99%. Honda Unicorm also a Good smooth long life engine but it lags in pick up, stylish look, sporty guts and even mileage when compared to Appache.
Hope it will help you. Good Luck.

Apache is for the youth. Unicorn is for the family man. u can also consider suzuki gs150r, heard its better than unicorn as a family mans bike(mileage(ARAI rated - 62kmpl),ergonomics,etc) and also sporty. 6gears,13.8bhp,huge majestic tank. Unicorn-13.5bhp
Apache is purely a sports breed. Raw power(15.2bhp for 160). No bike matches apache interms of power.Apaches mileage ll be around 45kmpl...

Reviews told that Apache 180 had better features that P180 so I bought it.
As I drive one, it's a raw power-plant, Stability is good (even while braking from high speed). Engine stays pretty fluent above 60kmph. Have not got any Engine heating problem yet. Mine is White colour, looks nice. I would say it's a nice package for the price.
I'm looking to sell mine in Mumbai b'coz I'm going on transfer (just driven 1000km).

Expert`s comment:

Apache RTR 160 would make a optimum selection and recommended to go for the same.
