    Default Choosing a bike for college commute

    I am confused between choosing honda hornet, Yamaha fzs, Suzuki gixxer and tvs Apache rtr 180. Will use mostly for college commute which is 80% city and 20% highway. Am a 6 feet tall and hence need a bike in which I can be comfortable and also which provides good mileage. Budget is 1 lakh.

    +1 to the above.

    From the above mentioned bikes, Hornet seems to be best bike for your physique. Honda is always reliable and it gives a decent mileage of 40+ kmpl.

    +1 to Hornet. Ticks all your requirements.
    Take test rides and then decide.

    I would like to thank my legs for supporting me, my arms for being always by my side and my fingers; I could always count on them.
