The most affordable offering here is the Honda Unicorn, the ex-showroom price of which is a whole Rs 88,000 less than the Yamaha R15M in its Monster Energy Moto GP Edition livery. However, save for its dependable engine and easy road manners, the Unicorn packs almost zero goodies when compared to most bikes here. 

Yamaha’s FZ series bikes (the FZ Fi, FZ-S Fi and FZ-X) are next on the list, and though they do offer a few features like smartphone connectivity (though without navigation) they seem to be missing an ‘it’ factor. 

And that’s where Bajaj has the market cornered, with the Pulsar P150 and Pulsar N160. Granted, they’re the rare few with a semi analogue cluster, however their engines offer a sensible blend of commuter-friendly comfort with occasional joyrides. Ditto for Hero, with the Xtreme 160R which, along with offering competent performance numbers, leans even more towards sharp handling (courtesy its light kerb weight). 

Moving up the performance and features ladder, TVS has done a stellar job with the Apache 160 duo. While the Apache RTR 160 2V is still essentially running a 15-year-old engine, its performance still raises eyebrows, and the recent iteration with smartphone connectivity, which allows for navigation along with the usual gamut of call/message alerts keeps up with the times too. 

And now finally moving on to all-out performance, and the chances are evenly matched with the Yamaha R15 V4, and MT-15 V2, as they both use the identical 155cc VVA-equipped liquid-cooled engine making the highest specifications in this class. Moreover, the R15 V4 offers riding aids such as traction control and an optional quickshifter as well, though as mentioned before, all of this comes at a high price tag. Curiously though, despite offering smartphone connectivity, neither offer navigation even as an option. And as an aside, the MT-15 will soon get the BS6 2.0 update, which you can read about in our report.

Hence, the 150-160cc segment in India offers quite a spread, for the no-nonsense commuter to the tech-savvy youth, the weekend tourer and even the knee-down junkie. The only limiting factor, then, is your wallet!
