Hi friends welcome to my blog. My name is Yogesh and today we will compare two best in class bikes which are Tvs apache rtr 160 4v and Suzuki gixxer but before that I want to tell you some thing's about Suzuki and TVS. So Suzuki is well known for engine refinement level and their higher class bikes while the TVS is known for their mid range bike and their performance which a middle class family can also buy because of their price but on the other hand Suzuki had introduced a very small range of bikes which a middle class family can buy. One last thing. Now TVS had challenged Suzuki in engine refinement by releasing all new TVS apache rtr160 4v. So this was the short story about Suzuki and TVS now let's start the comparison without wasting any more time.

TVS Apache rtr 160 4v vs Suzuki gixxer

So friends these were the specs of both the bike's on the basis of them I can say that Tvs apache 160 4v has more power and torque as compaired to Suzuki gixxer 150 and according to my ride experiance I can say that Tvs apache rtr160 4v is more power full and more faster as compared to Suzuki gixxer but the tall rider will feel more comfortable on Suzuki gixxer. So according to me a tall rider should go for Suzuki gixxer if the rider wants more comfort but if the rider wants more power, more top speed and faster acceleration the he or she should go for Tvs apache rtr 160 4v.
So that's the end of the comparison and I hope you will like the comparison shaired by me.               Thank you
