Yamaha FZS vs Tvs Apache RTR 150:A Review

With the  FZS vs Tvs Apache RTR 150 local market getting hotter and more by the day. People are becoming and more confused as there are more choices to choose In a world where one bike over the other in one department and the one in the other, how to zero in on a bike of our Here we try to ease out the decision the two of the most sought after in the market.

One is known for its blasting and the other for its breathtaking looks. try to figure out which way does the bend.

Engine, Transmission

The TVS Apache RTR 150 is loaded with an air 15occ twin valve which produces a peak output of an astounding 15.2 Bhp comes at 8500 revolutions of the Maximum torque is a handy Nm at 6000 RPM. The bike has a … high revving which goes all the way to 12000 RPM the rev limiter playing spoilsport. The breathes through the Mikuni carburetor.

The whole assembly is on a double cradle frame is rigid and sturdy.

Talking the Yamaha FZ. an air cooled 153 cc 2 valve drives the bike which a peak power output of 14 PS Bhp) which comes at an 7500 RPM and a maximum torque of a 14 Nm which is well spread the rev band and peaks at 6000 The same Mikuni BS26 the carburetion duties on the bike. The rests on a diamond frame is pretty well engineered and the bike more agility and on high speeds.

If we compare the bikes head-on, we will understand the fact both the bikes have different characteristics. While has a more meaty and rugged FZ seems to be a cool and calm which does its job with perfection. In fact, Apache’s is harsh and it is evident at pretty RPMs of 4000 and above and is one thing we would like TVS to on with attention as this mars the overall lovely of the bike.

FZ depicts the true engineering with one of the most mills to ride on and the bike to be completely under ease at higher rpms.

Both the come loaded with a speed gearbox. While the feel has been improved on the from its previous iterations but it and we go to the extent of saying ‘badly’, in of the super slick, super gearbox of the FZ. It seems like and Honda can never go wrong at in this department!

Need we even talk the styling of the bikes; FZ stands a winner here with its styling borrowed from the FZ 1 bikes. From the … headlamps to the lovely sculpted looking tank to the dual pointed seat to the countries tyres, every inch of the exudes style. It’s not the TVS looks plain, but it has been in the for a while and everybody praises the looks in the market.

RTR is a fantastic bike with one of the best consoles and lovely fit and finish.

Suspension Handling:

Apache loaded with optimized shock ups upfront which do not spongy as Unicorn’s and not as hard as the TVS has deployed the spring aided Gas shock absorbers (which call as MIG, Monotube Gas Filled Shox) at the rear have a … of 105mm. The posture of the bike is front and more inclined towards moving or racing.

This the chances of backpain and fatigue on tours but once you become to it, you would become addicted to it! The recess is so very well out that a person of the height 5 feet 10 inches would that they have a cockpit tailor made for them, but the downside is for the people of heights. They would the seating awkward and may well the bike et all.

Seats are pretty well and the size of the front seat is perfect but the rear seat is a pain in the …! We wonder if made those seats for small kids or very fellows. It’s pretty and with those bull upward pointed rear rails hungry for your butts, things only get

For the Yamaha, the story is not very and the rear seat is small and (but at least bigger Apaches). The front seat is well sorted and provides amount of space and cushion to even fatter butts. FZ equipped with large 41 mm telescopic shock absorbers happen to be the fattest on any current motorcycle with the … a lovely 130mm which lovely shock absorption (better than Apache’s).

to the lovely front is the Monocross at the rear which has a travel of and provides a very well center of gravity to the bike. characteristics of the suspensions during and particularly braking are one of the best and significantly to the high speed and acute cornering of the bike. when seated two, the doesn’t bottom out on normal and potholes.

Performance Fuel Efficiency:

is one area where Apache outthrones the FZ convincingly. With a of almost 1.5 bhp, Apache is and definitely loves getting up. Once you sit on the saddle, it feels as the asks for more. With a feel throughout the powerband, the never feels slow and all the way to the 125 Kmph mark on the speedo. The dash comes in a fast 4.5 and the bike hits the 100 kmph in around 15 seconds.

The best about the whole story is the and the adrenalin rush the bike in a rider which compels the to go that extra degree on the

Having praised the Apache so doesn’t mean that FZ is slow. But because of a huge 140 section tire and a little power the bike remains of Apache’s performance. 0-60 comes in a tad over 5 seconds and the 100 mark is caught up in over 16

But we must applaud the way the bike itself on high speeds. The fat 100 front and 140 rear section along with the Monocross and a fantastic frame makes bike one of the best handling especially at speeds touching 3 In fact, sometimes you would feel the speed when you see the it’s so very planted and

If we come to the city riding, it’s the FZ which makes its way to the With 14 Nm of torque under the majorly distributed towards the low and mid along with a lighter of 137 Kilograms, this bike is a to ride in cities under traffics without giving you the of changing gears frequently. The open chested seating of the bike also helps fatigue and even on longer one feels comfortable and calm.

On the hand, Apache is also one of the nimble bikes in the city makes its way through the smallest of with ease because of its size and lovely seating A ground clearance of 180 mm of Apache makes the monstrous speed and earthen potholes craving for the bikes bottom.

Despite totally performance oriented the TVS doesn’t let you down on the fuel figures. The bike returns respectable mileage figures of 45 kmpl in city riding and more on the highways. These go along with a 16 liter capacity which means longer tours in a tank of gas. Yamaha have been frugal and FZ just the same with fuel figures close to 40 kmpl in and upwards of 45 kmpl in highways.

No doubt that the mileage are low considering the segment it is put in and the power the bike churns out, but the designing of the bike is the primary of the same. Fuel tank is also just 12 liters further make the matters on long and spirited tours.

So yourself now between Yamaha FZs vs TVS RTR 150 . which is the best suite all demands.
