    Default FZ-S vs APACHE 180 Going for the bike tomorrow :)

    Hi guyz,

    I am going to get my first bike tomorrow

    My two and options are

    Apache 180
    FZ-S


    (No fazer it cost more than 10K from FZ-S here.. Even the yamaha sales man was saying if you are stupid or have boat loads of money go for fazer or else get the FZ-S same thing and look like a king lolz.)

    I am really confused between both of them

    My height is 5.6
    Weight is 50kg

    Tell me about both the bikes performance wise
    Looks everyone knows lol
    Any other speciality if any..

    Thanks
    krates

    Discussion Approved

    If you are looking for performance, go for the 180 I feel. Have not seen the specs of the FZ-S. But Manan came on tour with his 180 and it performed beautifully indeed!
    The Wheel was a great invention; Two Wheels with a Motor in between was even better!

    +1 @ken
    Performance: A180
    Looks: FZ-S -- Even FZ at around 2k lesser is a good option as specs are same.

    As per me, go for A180 if you are not engulfed by the FZ(S)'s looks.

    For:
    Kick @ss performance,
    Awesome handling,
    Feeling the rush in the in the body....

    Go for RTR 180...

    For:

    Smooth relaxed no frills thrills riding,
    YAMAHA's name,

    Go for FZ-S

    (but still RTR 180 makes more sense between the two and is more BANGS per BUCKS...)

    I would recomment u RTR180....the White Angel.....

    It can succumb FZ away in almost all the platforms.....
    *Performance
    *Mileage
    *Looks(not much when compared to the Naked looks of FZ but somehow)

    And since u weight only 50KG u should look lean and so RTR matches ur Body Build easily...

    U get more stuff in RTR then FZ.....FZ has nothing in it but only to show its Fat tyres and Tank (FZ owners no offense) when compared to Power Packed 180......
    .......Just a Biker.......

    FZ handles better than RTR180 in almost all riding conditions.... monoshocks making all the difference.

    No......

    handling just not only depends and shines in the bike just cuz the bike has a monoshock,it's complete thing which depends on the chasis setup,tyres,suspension setup,weight distribution,swingarm position to name a few...

    and yes my frnd....
    you post a better track time in FZ/FZ-S/FAZER than RTR/RTR FI/RTR 180,and i'll sweep the whole track for you....
