But we all must know that Honda are known for their superior engineering and flawless products and I am sure this one is going to be no exception. Honda CBR 150R with its flawless performance, power and an Rs 1,17,385 ex-showroom, Delhi price is going make a waves in the 150cc segment and will prove its mettle like the Honda CBR 250R which is one of the hottest selling 250cc motorcycles in India.

TVS Apache RTR 160 Fi

Apache RTR 160 Fi, an “Indian thoroughbred racing machine” is what I will call it. High on quality and performance quotient, it’s one of the best in the segment. Though a little more than a 150cc, but I feel this machine fits to be in the 150cc category because there is no other category till 200cc and its more close to the 150cc category. This motorcycle is now one of the flagship motorcycles in the TVS stable and has won hearts of many Indian bikers since its launch. It got the power and punch to match the R15 and CBR150R to a great extent. It got the speed, solid built and sharp price on its side and these are perfect ingredients to make this little beast a stunner on road and on track.
