Which segment is the most happening and considered as a youth in the bike market? It is none other than the 150cc bikes and scooter segment. The bikes in the 150cc segment are called power commuters and entry-level sports commuters. These bikes are basically commuter bikes with little extra power and torque figures when compared to the 125cc segment.

All in all, 150cc segment bikes come with an upright riding posture that allows you to glide through the city traffic even in peak hours without inducing pain in your body. This helps in keeping frustrations away and keeps you lively even after a couple of hours in the traffic conditions. Also, a 150cc bike will allow you to ride across the cross-country roads to explore the nearby areas around your city of dwelling.

150cc bikes and scooters offer respectable performance and aids in highways rides. Most new bikes up to 150cc in India offer a cruising speed of around 80 kmph for comfortable and stress-free highway stints. The performance of these bikes does not hamper much with a pillion on board which is an area of concern in lower capacity motorcycles.

In this article, we will be discussing 150cc and below bikes that are on sale in the country. This comprehensive list will be presented in ascending order of ex-showroom price so that it’s easy to understand and locate the bikes and scooters presented in the list.

Bajaj Pulsar 150

The first bike on this list is none other than the popular and muscular Bajaj Pulsar 150. It is the bike that was launched in India way back in 2001 and became an instant success due to muscular design language and punchy performance. During that time, there were just a couple of 150cc bikes on sale as the majority of the buyers have inclined towards fuel-efficient 100cc bikes.

Bajaj-Pulsar-150

With the passage of time, the things have changed, people have changed and bikes evolved. However, what never changed is the popularity of Bajaj Pulsar 150. It is the bike that started the biking journey of most riders in India and from it, they have moved to higher capacity motorcycles.

Bajaj Pulsar 150 is a sports commuter bike as it gets a muscular design language with an equally powerful engine. It offers good performance in the city riding conditions and can be taken on the highways for weekend getaways. The best thing is the bike continues to use same decade old design with wolf eye shaped DRLs and halogen headlamp. The reason behind is that even with the presence of new generation Pulsar NS 160, people are more inclined towards the older Pulsar 150 mostly due to more muscular design.

Coming to the engine, the Pulsar 150 uses an air-cooled, single-cylinder, 149.5cc engine which is now fuel injected and breathes through the same old 2-valve head. This motor now produces lower power of 13.79 bhp at 8000 rpm due to BS6 emission compliance and the peak torque is 13.4 Nm at 6000 rpm. You get a 5-speed gearbox attached to this engine which transfers power to the rear wheel. The gear ratios are on the taller side in a bid to extract a strong torque surge and to take the bike to a higher top speed.

Another thing that makes Pulsar 150 a great bike for daily use is a decent fuel economy. The sports commuter bike can return a mileage of 50 kmpl in mixed riding conditions if you are easy with the throttle. Anything above 45 kmpl can be easily achieved without many efforts. There is a 15-litre fuel tank on the bike that can promise you a riding range of at least 675 km in a single tankful.

Coming to the features department, the bike is equipped with a semi-digital instrument cluster with an analogue tachometer on the left and a sizable LCD screen on the right. The digital screen displays a host of data such as odometer, twin trip meters, digital clock, fuel gauge, service reminder, side stand down a reminder, instantaneous fuel efficiency, twin average fuel efficiency readouts for each trip and distance to empty feature.

All these features will help you understand how efficiently you are riding your bike and how long you can ride before your tank dries up. A gear position indicator is missing which could have completed the console.

Moving on the chassis, the bike continues to use the double-cradle frame that is good for straight-line stability but not rigid enough for attacking the corners. You get telescopic forks at the front and twin gas-charged shock absorbers at the rear. This setup is tuned for a balanced ride and Pulsar will protect your bike on the bad roads as well while offering stable high-speed highway riding capability.

The braking department is handled by a disc brake at the front and drum brake at the rear on the base variant and a disc brake on both ends on the top variant. There is a single channel ABS available for safer braking performance.

Bajaj Pulsar 150 is still a dream bike for many young riders in India with countless still riding the bike on a daily basis. If you are looking for a 150cc bike that would provide everything from style, performance and comfort, you should check out the Pulsar 150.

Honda CB Unicorn

The next bike on this list is Honda CB Unicorn. It is a bike that was launched against the likes of Pulsar and CBZ way back in 2005 while aiming for mature customers. The main point of Unicorn was to provide a hassle-free ownership experience of a powerful commuter bike that would last for years without any hiccup. It was completely different from its rivals which were focusing more on performance and sportiness.

Honda Unicorn

Honda is known for its excellent reliability, strong build quality and ultra-low maintenance with a wide reach of sales and service network. The CB Unicorn is more of a simple and sober motorcycle focusing on the most important aspects of Indian riders, practicality, unmatched rider comfort and decent fuel efficiency. It was chosen by people who had special demands of power commuting and required a bike for occasional highway rides. A powerful engine also helps people living in the hilly areas where added power and torque always help while towing a pillion along.

Previously, the bike had a 150cc engine onboard which is now replaced with a fuel-injected 160cc engine that offers more power and torque for better all-round performance that too without denting the fuel economy of the bike. Nowadays, the best-selling power commuter in India is none other than Honda CB Unicorn 160whcih register more than 20,000 units of sales on a monthly basis.

Honda CB Unicorn offers a long single-piece seat which provides a spacious sitting area for the rider leaving ample space for the pillion. You can go on a long ride with a pillion on board as there is enough space to adjust in between and also the seats are well-padded. The riding posture is upright which ensures no pain in the wrists, shoulder or back. You can ride for hours before taking breaks.

Talking about the engine, the CB Unicorn is now plonked with a larger 162.7cc, single-cylinder, air-cooled, fuel-injected engine with a 2-valve head. This powerplant pumps out a healthy 12.73 bhp at 7500 rpm and peak torque of 14 Nm at 5500 rpm. Like all other Hondas, the engine offers a linear power delivery which is smooth and engineers have done a great job is providing adequate low and mid-range torque for effortless city riding. A 5-speed gearbox is connected to the engine that offers smooth shifting and is available with tall gear ratios.

Moving on to the best part of the bike which is fuel efficiency. Honda Unicorn 160 is capable of returning an average mileage of around 50 kmpl in mixed riding conditions which is great for any 150-160cc bike. When this mileage is coupled to the 13-litre fuel tank, you can expect a range of over 600 km without many efforts. If you a frequent commuter on the highways, the Unicorn will become your best friend out on the open roads.

The bike continues to use the same three-pod fully analogue instrument cluster that offers all the basics such as a speedometer, tachometer, odometer, trip meter and fuel gauge. There is no bit of digital screen on this console which kind of feels dated and a digital display would have been a welcome step from the company. However, you finally get an engine kill switch which makes it convenient to switch off the engine without removing your hand from the handlebar.

The bike gets telescopic forks at the front and monoshock suspension at the rear which is tuned towards a softer side and offers comfortable ride quality and is stiff enough for high-speed stability. You can take on the bad section of roads on your daily commutes without getting unsettle on the bike.

To stop this 140 kg bike, you are given a 240 mm front dis brake unit with Nissin callipers and a 130 mm rear drum brake unit. A single-channel ABS is available as a standard feature for enhanced safety of the rider while hard braking.

The new BS6 Honda CB Unicorn 160 now gets a higher ground clearance of 187 mm which is high for a commuter bike. You can now take on any kind of speed breaker without worrying about scraping the underbelly. The seat height stands at 798 mm which is fine for most riders out there.

TVS Apache RTR 160 2V

After the Unicorn, we have another old gem in this list and it is the TVS Apache RTR 160 2V. The Chennai based automaker is known for reliable and sporty products. TVS is into track racing and off-road rallies for over decades know and the knowledge from the experiences is clearly reflected in its product portfolio. The Apache RTR 160 2V offers excellent handling and agility despite having a age-old double-cradle chassis.

Apache 160 2V

On one hand, the TVS has launched the better styled, more powerful and technologically advanced Apache RTR 160 4V in India but it retains its old charming product, the Apache 160 2V. The company provided both single-channel ABS and fuel injection with an upgraded BS6 engine to make sure the riders who are into old charms continue to get the product. Apart from the required changes, the bike retains its design and riding characteristics as it was before.

The Apache RTR 160 2V is a sports commuter bike with racing characteristics such as quick lane changing, strong mid-range grunt to pull from the corner exits, a slightly lower set clip-on handlebars for sporty riding posture, a smart instrument console with track racing-related readouts and much more.

The Apache 160 2V is powered by a 159.7 cc, air-cooled, fuel-injected, single-cylinder engine which is supplied with a 2-valve SOHC head for breathing. This motor pumps out 15.1 bhp of max power at 8400 rpm and a peak torque of 13.9 Nm comes up at 7000 rpm. It is a short-stroke engine with a larger bore making it a high revving unit with a red line in the range of 11000 rpm. For delivering crisp acceleration, a 5-speed gearbox is paired with the engine. The top speed of the RTR 160 2V is in the region of 110 to 114 kmph.

You can also use the bike for daily commuting for which the RT-Fi fuel injection technology offers a mileage in the range of 43-45 kmpl. A 12-litre fuel tank capacity will promise a range of over 500 km in a single tankful.

In the chassis department, you are blessed with a synchro stiff double-cradle frame which is designed with the learning from the world of track racing over many years. All in all, this chassis provides excellent cornering ability to the bike and even if you are a novice rider, you can learn cornering on this bike without any fuss. Now, the TVS tyres are made of a softer compound which has a far better grip than the old hard compound tyres.

Coming to the suspension, there is telescopic forks at the front and twin gas-charged MIG suspension at the rear with are adjustable for preload. This setup is tuned in such a way that it absorbs all the undulations on bad patches of roads while offering rock-like stability at high speeds. The double-cradle frame is known for straight-line stability and Apache has got one. Around the corners, the chassis and suspension work in tandem to keep the bike planted along the directed path. Any sudden changes will be granted to the rider due to the highly agile and nimble aspects of the bike’s chassis.

Like before, the Apache RTR 160 comes with a neat semi-digital instrument cluster with an analogue tachometer and a digital screen for the rest of the information. An analogue tachometer feels sporty when you rev hard, something which a digital tachometer cannot provide. The Blue lit LCD screen delivers info about the speed, fuel level, odometer, trip meters, lap timer, top speed recorder and 0-60 kmph time recorder. The dashboard is flashed with faux carbon fibre cues that look smart, premium and sporty.

The government made ABS mandatory on all the two wheels above 125cc and Apache RTR 160 required one too. Therefore, the company didn’t waste any time and plonked single-channel ABS which works along with the front disc brake unit and at the rear, you get an option for choosing a disc or drum unit.

If you are on a tight budget and want something sporty with a racing soul, the Apache RTR 160 2V can become a great option. Before finalising, please ensure that you have a proper test ride of the bike.

Bajaj Avenger Street 160

The first and the only cruiser motorcycle on this list is the Bajaj Avenger Street 160. It is one of the oldest bikes in this price range and comes with a torque engine for great highway performance. Bajaj Avenger 160 is a low-slung cruiser bike that is made to take on the highways without any fuss.

Bajaj Avenger 160

It gets scooped seat which is wide and well-padded delivering a comfortable ride experience over long distances. The bike is a street cruiser and hence, it is equipped with flat handlebars allowing for easy manoeuvring in the city traffic. The sticker price of the Avenger 160 is Rs 1.02 lakh ex-showroom, New Delhi. There is no other cruiser bike in this price range (Suzuki Intruder 150 is priced at Rs 1.23 lakh ex-showroom) making it a complete monopoly of the bike in the 150cc segment.

The company replaced the old Avenger 180 and the Avenger 150 with the Avenger 160 in a bid to decrease confusion among the customers and keeping the Avenger brand alive. The bike offers the fuel efficiency of a 150cc bike while it produces power and torque of a segment above, i.e., 180cc.

Powering the Bajaj Avenger Street 160 is 160cc, 2-valve, single-cylinder, fuel-injected, air-cooled engine which is BS6 compliant. This powerplant makes 14.79 bhp at 8500 rpm and 13.7 Nm of torque at 7000 rpm. Reduction duties are handled by a 5-speed gearbox which has well-spaced gear ratios that makes way for daily city riding as well as highway stints. There is enough punch in the bike which allows a cruising speed of 80 to 85 kmph which is ideal for 150cc bikes.

The main concern of todays’ rider is the mileage and a 150 to 160cc bike offers a good balance of power and performance. The Avenger Street 160 returns a mileage of 43-45 kmpl in mixed riding conditions and on the highway, this number can be seen increasing if the bike runs at a constant speed. A 13-litre fuel tank capacity makes sure the bike runs for at least 550 km before requiring refuelling. This kind of range is great for long-distance touring, that too on a budget.

Once you are on the saddle, the low seat height of 737 mm will allow you to place both your feet firm on the ground. The 156 kg kerb weight will not bother you even in the city rides due to the lower centre of gravity. If you are short ride, you will find the bike easy to access and easy to manage in city rides.

The instrument console on the Avenger is a single-pod unit with a combination of analogue and digital readouts. You get an analogue speedometer and below it lays an LCD screen for fuel gauge, odometer and trip meters. Apart from this, there is a range of tell-tale lights that provides usual info to the rider.

On the chassis front, the bike gets a double-cradle frame which offers great straight-line stability that is necessary for high-speed highway cruising. The wheelbase is long at 1490 mm making it one of the longest bikes around in the segment. A pair of telescopic forks are present at the front and twin shock absorbers are present at the rear. This system is a well-balanced unit for comfortable ride and handling. Despite a long wheelbase, the bike doesn’t scrap the speed breakers as the ground clearance is high at 177 mm.

There is a disc brake at the front and a drum at the rear with a single-channel ABS for safer braking under the slippery and loose surface. At present, the company is not offering an option for a rear disc brake. In our opinion, a cruiser bike should come with a disc brake at both ends and dual-channel ABS for better safety on the highways.

If you are thinking about buying a cruiser in the 150cc segment and are on a tight budget, we advise you to go and take a test ride of the bike for a clear understanding of the riding comfort and performance. There are many aftermarket accessories that can make your ride a unique cruiser by adding income important elements for more convenience. Avenger 160 will provide you with good fuel efficiency, a comfortable ride and practicality which is a rare combination.

Hero Xtreme 160R

Up next, we have Hero Xtreme 160R which is an entry-level sports commuter bike from the Hero Moto Corp. The bike gets an upmarket design that is completely fresh and the stance is aggressive with an upright riding posture. It is a nimble bike and allows for easy manoeuvring in the city limits. The Xtreme 160R is priced at Rs 1.04 lakh ex-showroom, New Delhi for the base variant with a rear drum brake.

Hero Xtreme 160R

The bike rivals the likes of TVS Apache RTR 160 4V, Bajaj Pulsar NS 160, Yamaha FZ Fi and Suzuki Gixxer. It replaced the old Xtreme 150 in Hero’s product line-up and comes with a lower price tag when compared to its arch-rivals in this segment.

Moving on to the powertrain department, the bike is fitted with a 163cc, single-cylinder, air-cooled, engine which is fed by Hero’s programmed fuel injection system with Xsens technology. The 2-valve motor is able to belt out a max power of 15 bhp at 8500 rpm and 14 Nm peak torque at 6500 rpm. By these numbers, the bike is clearly not as powerful as the Pulsar and the Apache but sure enough, it gives a tough fight to the duo with its performance.

Transmission duties are taken care of by a 5-speed gearbox which comes with well-spaced gear ratios that offer good low and mid-range performance in the city riding conditions. Speaking about acceleration, the bike sprints from 0 to 60 kmph in 4.7 seconds and the top speed you get is around 115 kmph. If you choose to cruise on the highways, the bike feels stress-free at 80 kmph which is the sweet spot.

Hero’s programmed fuel injection system is able to deliver up to 50 kmpl of mileage in mixed riding conditions which is great among all the bike presented here. A 12-litre fuel tank will deliver a range of over 550 km in a single tankful.

On the dashboard, you will find a negative LCD display that looks cool and is easily readable due to large size fonts. There is a speedometer, tachometer, odometer, trip meters, digital clock and a fuel gauge. The company should have added a gear position indicator as well. You get a side stand indicator with the engine cut off for further safety and you cannot move without closing the side stand. Apart from all these, the bike also features a hazard light switch for greater visibility during rains and fog.

There is a full LED headlight cluster and LED taillight with an upswept design and a stepped seat for the pillion. All these features make it a stylish motorcycle and have a good road presence, especially in white colour.

The suspension system is comprised of telescopic forks up front and a monoshock at the rear. This is the first time Hero has added monoshock suspension to their bike. This setup is well-balanced and offers good comfort over bad roads with reasonable high-speed stability.

The bike is halted by petal discs on both ends with the front being a 276 mm rotor with 2-piston callipers and the rear rotor measures 220 mm diameter with a 1-piston calliper. A single-channel ABS works for safer braking performance.

Yamaha FZ S FI

Yamaha FZ S FI is the nest bike about which we will talk in brief. This bike is in the third generation and looks completely new when compared to the first or second-generation bike. The company has positioned it as a practical power commuter instead of a sports bike. The power level of the FZS is least in the 150-160cc segment even lower than the CB Unicorn 160. However, the bike also weighs less at just 137 kg which compensates for the lower power up to a certain limit.

Yamaha FZS FI

What makes Yamaha FZS Fi a great power commuter is the presence of an incredible suspension setup that takes on the bumps very well and comfortable riding posture for daily commuting. If you sit on the saddle and hold the handlebars, you will feel secure as the ergonomics are designed in such a way that gives out a feeling of sitting inside the bike instead of on top of it.

The seat is a single-piece unit and offers a flat and wide area for both the rider and the pillion. With a pillion on board, you can ride on the city roads as well as on the highways without any discomfort. You hold the handlebar with an upright sitting posture that is comfortable for long rides as well.

Yamaha FZ S FI is propelled by a 149cc, single-cylinder, air-cooled, fuel-injected engine with a 2-valve SOHC head. This motor churns out 12.2 bhp at 7250 rpm and a peak torque of 13.6 Nm at 5500 rpm. The engine is paired to a 5-speed gearbox that has well-spaced gears for the city and occasional highway stints.

The FZ S FI returns around 47 to 50 kmpl in mixed riding conditions with a light wrist. If you are looking for explosive performance, then this is not the bike for you as the speed progress above the 60 kmph mark is slow and feels underpowered when pushing after 80 kmph. The 13-litre fuel tank capacity can provide a range of nearly 600 km from a single tankful.

The braking duties are handled by disc brakes on both ends with singe channel ABS for safer braking performance. If you hard press the front lever, the disc brake unit will provide a sharp bite and sheds the speed pretty quickly.

With this bike, you get a fully digital instrument cluster with all the important details for the rider. There is a speedometer, tachometer, fuel gauge, odometer, trip meters and tell-tale lights. It is one of the modest sporty commuter bikes for everyday use.

The performance of the FZ S FI is not great enough but is faster than any 125cc bike in the market. There is enough power for daily commuting without burning your pocket. It is aimed at the youth who are looking for a stylish and fuel-efficient bike with a smooth engine and the trust badge of Yamaha.

Aprilia SR 160

The SR 160 from the Italian brand Aprilia is the most powerful scooter in the Indian market and also has the highest capacity engine. It is a scooter with sporty performance and racing riding dynamics for scooter enthusiasts in the country. It is priced at Rs 1.05 lakh ex-showroom, New Delhi making itself being counted among the expensive scooters in the country.

Aprilia SR 160 BS6

At the core of Aprilia SR 160 is an air-cooled, 160.03cc single-cylinder engine with a fuel injection system and a 3-valve SOHC head. This powerplant belts out 10.84 bhp at 7600 and 11.6 Nm torque at 6000 rpm. A CVT transmission takes care of the power transmission via a dry centrifugal clutch. Just twist the throttle and see the world go behind you in a blur as the top speed you get on the SR 160 is around 100 kmph.

With all that power and performance, there is little room for fuel-efficiency. Yes, the Aprilia SR 160 delivers the least mileage of under 40 kmpl in the daily riding scenario. There is a 6-litre fuel tank that can provide a range of a little over 200 km. If you manage to ride the scooter with a light wrist, you can expect a little better mileage from this racing machine.

On the features front, there is nothing phenomenal available on the SR 160. You get a basic headlight with halogen bulbs which could have been an LED unit in the BS6 version. On the inside, you get an out-dated semi-digital instrument cluster with only basic info. It is high time that the company looks into the drawbacks and provide a better-looking meter console similar to that on the SXR 160. There is no mobile charging socket, no Bluetooth connectivity, no spacious footboard or under-seat storage and finally, you don’t get an external fuel filler cap.

It is the only scooter that comes with large 14-inch alloy wheels with wide 120-section tyres. The grip that you get from these tyres are exceptional and when combined with a stiff suspension, the scooter performs like a sports bike. Yes, you heard that right, the telescopic front forks and shock absorber at the rear are tuned towards the stiffer side for sporty riding dynamics.

Braking duties are performed by a front disc brake unit with single-channel ABS and at the rear, you only get a drum brake.

TVS Apache 160 4V

The engine is exciting to rev and the bike takes on the corners with ease. Any novice rider will also feel the chassis remaining stable and composed around the corners. The mid-range grunt helps in exiting the corners with maximum power surge for attaining higher speeds quickly.

The BS6 upgrades some good and some bad bits. Good bits include a full LED headlight, chiselled headlight cowl for a sharper look. And the bad bits include the reduction in power and torque numbers and the Race Tuned Fuel Injection system somehow does not offer the fun which a carburettor used to offer in the BS4 version.

The bike is moved by air and oil-cooled, 159.7cc, single-cylinder engine which is fuelled by an RT-Fi fuel injection system. There are 4-valves on the cylinder which leads to better volumetric efficiency of the engine that results in better power output and mileage. This powerplant pumps out 15.6 bhp at 8250 rpm and 14.12 Nm of peak torque at 7250 rpm. These numbers are lesser than what this bike produced in the BS4 version. You get a 5-speed gearbox with this bike that are evenly spaced for the enhanced city and highway riding ability.

Despite reduced engine output numbers, the bike delivers excellent acceleration and identical top speed. Apache RTR 160 4V hits 100 kmph from zero in a little over 15 seconds and goes up to a top speed of 115 kmph. However, the speedometer shows up to 125 kmph including the speedo error.

Apache 160 4V is equipped with a fully digital instrument panel that offers all the basic features along with track-focused readouts such as 0-60 kmph time recorder, top speed recorder and a lap timer for those who would like to keep track of their timing around the circuits. The bike gets an LED headlight and taillight with a single-piece seat for a comfortable ride in the city limits.

At the front end, there is a pair of telescopic forks and a monoshock is present at the rear. This system is tuned for Indian riding conditions and offers a comfortable ride even on the bad section of roads. The 147 kg bike is brought to a halt via a 270 mm petal disc brake at the front and 240 mm petal disc at the rear with single-channel ABS preventing accidental skidding over slippery surfaces.

Suzuki Gixxer

The capable rival to the sports commuters from Yamaha, Honda, Bajaj and TVS is none other than the Suzuki Gixxer. It is a bike that is the most radical in design as it offers proper street naked design language with compact dimensions and raised rear subframe. The pillion sits higher on the Gixxer than any other bike of the sports commuter segment.

Suzuki Gixxer 155

The bike features a full LED headlight unit, sharp tank shrouds, a fully digital instrument cluster and fat front forks and a wide rear tyre. For better road presence, the company has provided many striking paint schemes and MotoGP livery that makes the Gixxer an outstanding bike in terms of look.

Moving on to the engine department, there is a 155cc, single-cylinder, air-cooled, fuel-injected engine with a 2-valve SOHC head. This powerplant is BS6 compliant and pumps out 13.4 bhp at 8000 rpm and 13.8 Nm torque at 6000 rpm. You get a 5-speed gearbox for the reduction duties on the Gixxer.

Suzuki Gixxer does a 0 to 100 kmph sprint in about 16 seconds with a top speed in the range of 110-115 kmph. These numbers are actually similar to all other 150-160cc bikes. You can expect a real-world mileage of around 45 kmpl which translates into a riding range of 540 km from the 12-litre fuel tank that comes installed in the bike.

The dashboard is equipped with a fully digital instrument cluster which is informative and also comes with a gear position indicator. Apart from this, you get a speedometer, odometer, trip meters, fuel gauge and other tell-tale lights. It comes with a full LED headlight which properly illuminates the roads in the dark.

Gixxer uses 41 mm telescopic forks at the front and a monoshock at the rear. The braking department is taken care of by a dual disc brake at both ends with Bybre callipers. Further safety is guaranteed by a single-channel ABS for preventing wheel locks under hard braking.

Aprilia SXR 160

After over a year of speculation, the Italian company Aprilia finally launched the SXR 160 maxi-scooter in India with a staggering price tag of Rs 1.26 lakh ex-showroom, New Delhi. This scooter is now the only maxi scooter that can be used for long-distance touring. It comes with a large capacity engine and offers stupendous performance on the open roads.

Aprilia SXR 160

At the front end, you will be glad to find Aprilia’s signature 3-part headlight cluster which looks sporty and is a full-LED unit. Rest all lights including taillight and blinkers are LED units that provide good illumination even in the day time.

The scooter gets a large windshield at the front to protect the rider from excessive windblast at higher speeds that is common on the highways. The rider sits on a spacious and well-padded seat that offers comfort over long distances.

Moving on to the engine of the SXR, you get a 160.03cc, single-cylinder, air-cooled engine with a 3-valve SOHC head. This powerplant is fed by a fuel injection system and churns out a healthy 10.84 bhp of power at 7100 rpm and 11.6 Nm twisting force at 6000 rpm. The engine is coupled to a CVT transmission that offers hair-raising acceleration and takes the scooter to a top speed of 100 kmph.

Being a heavyweight maxi scooter expect a mileage of 35 kmpl from this machine. The riding range you will get from this is around 245 km from a single tankful. If you are light on the throttle, you can potentially get better mileage but the performance of the SXR cannot disengage from you revving the hell out of it.

The instrument cluster is a fully digital unit that is something we all have been waiting for. Before moving further, we expect this kind of meter console to be made available on other Aprilia scooters as well. There is everything you’d ever need on the console including a trip computer, tachometer, ambient temperature sensor and engine temperature sensor as well.

For utility, the SXR 160 offers a front glovebox with a mobile charging socket and spacious under-seat storage. A few things are missing on the scooter including Engine Kill Switch, Hazard Lamp, Bluetooth connectivity and external fuel filler cap.

The suspension setup is stiff similar to that of SR 160 and offers rock-solid high-speed stability. There are telescopic forks at the front with a single shock absorber at the rear. The cornering ability of the SXR is like that of SR 160 and dives in and out of the corners without any hassle.

However, the wheels are downsized to 12-inch units which is not so great but the wheel cross-section remains the same at 120 mm offering a superior grip. There is a front disc brake unit with single-channel ABS and rear drum brake.

Vespa SXL 150

The headlight cluster is a funky rectangular unit with full LED lights. On the interior, you get a semi-digital instrument cluster that is neat and looks premium which is the language of Vespa.

Vespa SXL 150 is propelled by a 149.5cc, 3-valve, single-cylinder, air-cooled engine.

Yamaha MT-15

Yamaha MT-15 is a naked streetfighter in the 150cc segment that offers thrilling performance and an aggressive stance. It is priced at Rs 1.4 lakh ex-showroom, New Delhi which is not cheap by any means but offers premium design and performance not seen in this category before. It is the very first small capacity MT bike from a Japanese company.

Yamaha MT-15

Being a streetfighter bike, it can be used for daily commuting as well because the riding posture on the MT-15 is upright with handlebars at short reach. The handlebar is wide and offers you a commanding posture and keeps the bike under control at all speeds.

Yamaha MT-15 comes with a low rack angle and thus it is easy to manoeuvre the bike even in dense city traffic. In the ergonomics department, the seat is well-padded with an upright riding posture that helps in eliminating any pain-inducing points. This bike is strictly made for city riding as the gearing is on the shorter side which will reduce the mileage on highway runs.

The seat height on the MT-15 is 810 mm which might seem tall for some riders but the rider’s seat is actually narrow which makes it accessible for rider with a height of 5 feet and 5 inches. A kerb weight of just 138 kg also aids in bike management in city riding conditions.

Coming to the powertrain on the Yamaha MT-15, it is powered by a single cylinder engine that displaces 155cc and is cooled by liquid-cooling system. The fuelling is done via an electronic fuel injection system. There are 4 valves on the cylinder making it highly efficient fuel burner. For better top-end performance and fuel efficiency, the engine is equipped with Yamaha’s latest variable valve actuation technology (VVA) which alters the valve actuation timing and duration for enhanced power delivery and reduced fuel wastage.

After upgrading the engine to BS6 emission norms, the engine lost about 1 bhp of power and 0.8 Nm of torque when compared to the BS4 engine. This mini powerplant churns out 18.23 bhp at 10,000 rpm and 13.9 Nm torque at 8500 rpm. A 6-speed transmission is mated to the engine with same gear ratios but with shorter final drive. The light kerb weight of 138 kg and short gearing helps MT-15 to hit 100 kmph in about 11 seconds making it quicker than the R15 V3. However, the top speed of the bike is lesser than the R15 with estimates of 130 kmph.

Speaking about the performance, the MT-15 hits 100 kmph from rest in under 12 seconds and reaches a top speed of over 130 kmph which is great by all means. The MT-15 accelerates faster than the R15 V3 but has lower top speed than the later due to short gearing.

On the dashboard, you will find a fully digital instrument cluster that offers a range of information to the rider. There is a speedometer, a tachometer, odometer, trip meters, fuel gauge, real-time fuel efficiency, average fuel consumption, distance to empty, gear position indicator and much more.

Unlike USD forks on the international variants, the Indian version of the MT-15 comes with telescopic forks up front and linked-type monoshock at the rear which are stiff to offer better handling and cornering ability. The riding dynamics are like that of a track machine as it comes with R15’s Deltabox frame.

This cool urban streetfighter comes with 282 mm disc brake unit at the front and 220 mm disc at the rear gripped by Bybre callipers offering sharp bite for inspiring confidence in the riders. However, there is only a single channel ABS available on the bike.

Yamaha R15 V3

At last, we have Yamaha R15 V3 which is a sports bike of race track origins that would fit your pocket and also offer thrilling performance. It was launched way back in 2008 as a counter to Hero Honda Karizma and Bajaj Pulsar 220F. The R15 was an instant hit but some complaint about its boring rear.

Yamaha R15 V3

 

Yamaha corrected the same with R15 V2 with raised rear part and the pillion seat become useless and least practical among any bike in India. However, the performance of the bike remained same with similar engine output. Then came the Yamaha R15 V3, it was a completely new makeover with powerful engine and far greater performance.

The new 155cc, liquid-cooled engine lost power while upgrading to BS6 emission norms It is a single cylinder unit with fuel injection system and a 4-valve head. This motor extracts a bit more power of 18.37 bhp at 10,000 rpm and slightly more torque of 14.1 Nm at 8,500 rpm. Like all other bikes in performance segment, you get a 6-speed transmission to turn the rear wheel. The 6th gear is an overdrive gear ratio leading to a high-top speed and relaxed highway ride.

The engine offers adequate mid-range grunt but loses out on low end performance due to short stroke engine. A power surge is experienced above 7000 rpm when the VVA kicks in. When gem of an engine combines with precise Deltabox frame, the outcome is excellent track performance. It is said by many experts that R15 is a beginner’s track tool.

The R15 V3 sprints to 100 kmph from zero in about 12 seconds with the top speed coming up in the range of 150 kmph on the speedometer. Despite all the racing powertrain, the engine is tuned to return a fuel economy of 40 km per litre which is great any day. Expect a riding range of over 400 km from its 11-litre fuel tank capacity.

On the dashboard, you will find a fully digital instrument cluster that offers a range of information to the rider. There is a speedometer, a tachometer, odometer, trip meters, fuel gauge, real-time fuel efficiency, average fuel consumption, distance to empty, gear position indicator and attractive VVA signature which comes up after 7000 rpm.

You get to hold the lower placed clip-on handlebars after leaning forward by a good margin. The tall windshield protects the rider from windblast at high speeds and also enhances the aerodynamics for better top end performance. Seat height is accessible at 810 mm and is well-padded for proper support. Ergonomically, the rider has to commit to the riding posture for superior control on the bike.

Yamaha R15 V3 is a great option for track riders and those who look to make their career in track racing.
