  1. average of bike?

  2. in apache….yellow is bestt…..

  3. hi,
    i am also having a TVS PACHE RTR FI 160…i completely agree with sandeep when he mentioned that riding this bike is like riding a prgnant camel. its even worsr that that. now if i see a LUNA on the road, i envy it thinking that i wish i had a LUNA.

    Problems i am facing since last 10 months:

    Misfirng from engine.

    suddenly engine will get off and there will be huge blast from silencer.

    i hope, all FIers facing the same problem.

    can anybody help me out here??

  4. Hi,i got an RTR fi.Bought it about 3 months ago. I too faced the same problems most of u did.Very less pickup,misfires,engine used to go off as soon as i left the throttle.But after the second service my bike is newer than ever.Its giving me no problems what so ever.The pickup is awesome, “awesome” is the word believe me.
    The tech told me that it was a problem with fuel injection settings.It was set right and the bike is….. well u know :).
    If this bike is taken care of properly, there is none like it in its segment.

  5. sandeep i love ur patience

    Hi, i got an RTRFI. bought it before 21days.i have the problem in that my speedometer run automatically upto 130 when i am in driving. what is the problem i want to know

  7. Rohitboxxer says:

    The problems seems to be with the fi system,which is hard to understand for those dumb mechs.Thats why bajaj stepped down to karb for it’s pulsar 220.I bought rtr 160 karb version with rear disc 10 months ago,completed 5500 kms.No problem till date.Actually the mechs here in next drive showroom are also dumb,but the owner is quite wise.He does not sell fi versions,&warns every customer to buy it on their own responsibility.My Karb rtr is doing very well with 45-55 mileage,though i ripp it at 70-90km/hr.

  8. DO NOT BUY APACHE RTR Fi. Initially the bike is good but after few months it becomes worse. VIBRATIONS, Inconsistent Performance.
    Some days the bike just flies & some days it struggles to pick up speed. Braking is good but if rear wheel locks it goes sideways.
    Good only for stunting purpose and not for power commuting.
    Fuel pump is very expensive @ around 4k. Severe Tappet noise ,fuel tank heating, poor electrical system.
    This is not only in my bike, but search the web many users are also affected.
    TVS won’t replace the bike & resale value is so poor that hardly a 7-8 month old RTR Fi fetches less than 50-52k. That is a severe loss.
    Don’t go through my ordeal. Buy any other bike but not RTR Fi.
    I am very dissapointed. When I bought I really liked the bike and bought after saving money for more than 8 months but it turned out to be a very bitter experience.


  9. hey guys …… I want to purchase a new bike of 150-160cc range …. i’m planning to go with rtr , rtr fi , gs150r …. will anybody guide me ? i want both good performance n even milage …..

  10. read all the probs said by those guys …its true…im facing the major prob s the bike stops in the middle when it was in motion..low pick up.,drinling more amount of fuel,its viberating when its reach to 80 to 85 kmph. try hero honda unicon its reallly coooooool…….don waste ur money on apachi rtr fi 160..

  11. Go to pulsar 180cc,
    instead of apache or suzuki.
    Shuruat me ye sari bdiya rhti hai, but after 6-8 mnths they get worse of worst.
    Bajaj is bst in the technology and power.
    And don’t think to buy 220.
    Go for pulsar 180cc…
