The Yamaha FZ and the TVS Apache have been arch-rivals for more than 10 years now. These bikes were introduced in the market at a time when the space for performance-oriented motorcycles was growing strong and at a fast pace. While the Apache was touted to follow the bloodline of its racing pedigree and the innovation that TVS was famous for, the FZ was acclaimed as the ‘Lord of the Streets’, offering refinement, quality and handling from the Japanese two-wheeler giant.
Fast forward to the present where both motorcycles, in their latest forms, continue to clash against one another for bragging rights. They have evolved in terms of form and function, giving them much to brag about. So, will the Apache RTR 160 4V or will the FZ S V3.0 claim top honours in this comparison? Let’s find out.
