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).

  • Akash,

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