    The Bajaj Pulsar 150 is still a great option if you’re looking for an entry-level 150cc motorcycle. The motor offers likable performance with a hint of brashness, which has made the Pulsar brand so popular among the youth. The styling could have been better and it does miss out on modern features, but it remains a well-rounded motorcycle. So, if you are looking for a comfortable bike for daily commutes, you may go for Pulsar 150. On the other hand, the TVS Apache RTR 180 BS6 gets a few but crucial updates to make it future-proof at least for the time being. With these, it has the potential to remain a fan FAVOURITE for a little longer, at least as long as the 180cc segment remains sparsely populated. If you are looking for a fun to ride a frugal bike, you may go for Apache RTR 180. Do take a test ride in order to clear your all doubts. Check out nearest authorized dealership details.Moreover, you may compare the bikes according to their variants. Read More

    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 prioritise performance over anything else. On the other hand, in nearly every aspect, except maybe ergonomics and braking, the Yamaha FZS-FI v3.0 fails to impress. While its motor offers better fuel efficiency compared to the previous-gen model, it lacks grunt. You may compare both the bikes accordingly. Do take a test ride in order to get better clarity.
