    I own 1 and no. It's riding posture is straight. 50+ kmpl FE is decent enough for city traffic.

    I've ridden both , hence i am saying. Ride fz and gixxer back to back, you'll know, fz has slightly rearset pegs with lower set wide bars as a result of which there's a leaning stance, apache is also sporty, but gixxer, hornet, xblade, xtreme 200r are definitely more comfortable than fz . My friend has developed back pain while riding with me in a long trip, doctor advised him to take medical help.

    Guys it also depends on the individual height and body stature.

    It has a slight forward leaned riding position. It is not immediately apparent but will be easily felt if ridden back to back with a bike with upright riding posture. The OP had asked for a bike with upright riding posture.

    OP can take a test ride. It is a very good bike.

    Today test drove 4 bikes back to back
    1-apache 160 4v
    2-xtreme 200r
    3-apache 200 4v
    4-hornet ABS

    RESULTS
    Xtreme 200r has narrowest rider seat of them all hence not felt comfortable. I rod it on bad roads with pillion, suspension felt perfect. But bike not felt powerful than a 150/160 cc bike.
    APache 200 4v ABS
    good bike but lacks at lower end can't pull in second gear with pillion. Sporty riding stance & split seat hence rejected.
    APACHE 160 4 V
    Good pickup good at lower end too.It looks sporty but riding posture is comfortable for me, suspension also good for bad roads, actually I took second test drive of this bike to make sure that how it's comfortable & vibe free commuter but looks sporty, impressed with the bike.
    HORNET ABS
    this bike gone neck to neck with 160 4v. It's performance & comfort almost equal to 4v.

    Now only FZS FI remaining for a test ride

    Between 160 4v & hornet which one would better in terms of low maintenance cost & durability, for atleast 5 to 6 years.
