Need Advice: Fazer / Apache / Unicorn

Recommended Posts

Dear All,
I am a newbie here,i am planning to buy a bike in the month of August,i am confused which bike to buy.???

I had a chance to see the new Yamaha Fazer a week back,it looks great...i have been a Yamaha Fan all my life..i had a 1986 RX-100 (Japan Engine) which i loved.

My close friend has an Apache RTR 160 which he bought last year...i like that bike too....and gives decent mileage around 40-42 kmpl.

I also like the performance of Unicorn, but i personally do not like Pulsar,Hunk,etc...
So i m left with;
1) Fazer - Great looks,Not sure about the mileage,i think it is slightly overpriced.
2) Apache RTR 180 - Again not sure about the mileage as it is 180,i do not like the whole idea of having rear disk brakes,
3) Unicorn - which is great bike...but lacks digital tachometer,speedometer,etc.

i am confused pleas help...pleas suggest a nice bike...i would personally go for FAZER but i do think it is slightly overpriced...do u think its worth..i have never doubted the pleasure of riding a Yamaha but...not sure how it will affect my purse..

Thank You...

Fazer is best for all three of them but its price is high and its performance is not as good as RTR

and if u want something little less price than go for FZ-16

but i would advice you take a test ride of New Pulsar 220 DTSi which is the fastest bike in India and also cheaper than Fazer and gives better mileage in performance .

So buy fazer or FZ-16 or  if buy Pulsar 220 DTSi best value for money product

Thanks Varun for your opinion....

i think i will go with Fazer...i actually took a test drive of  Pulsar 220 day before...hell its fast & 2k cheaper than Fazer but again with the mileage sticking around 30 kmpl...and being a YAMAHA Fan i would go for Fazer...still not sure as i haven't had a Test Drive...once i will...will let you know...

Moderators, SORRY for the use of SMS language...henceforth i will be careful while posting and will go through the RULES once again.smiley20.gif

Hi,

 

i own a FZ 16. covered 842 km. its giving 40 kmpl and the feel s amazing such that i dont like to get down from my beast. Sharp manoeuvering, good pick up, male grumblin sound,etc..lots to say

 

Movin my bike in the city traffic s much easier. So no need to worry about City traffic handling.

 

But when comes to FAZER, i accept that it looks great. But Yamaha s asking 9k extra for no major upgrades. Its only d fairing finally u left with. If u likes d naked version, go for FZ 16. But, dont miss to own this class bike.
