Hello everyone. This is Shadman, from New Eskaton, Dhaka. After viewing reviews from AutosBd, I am inspired to write about my ownership review of Apache 150 hyper edge version which was launched in 2010. At first my dad brought it for his personal use but now I’m using it. My dad brought it in 2013 and it was our first bike. The journey with this beast was quiet adventurous. Now let’s discuss about it.
|Engine Type||4Stroke Single Cylinder Air Cooled|
|Bore X Stroke (mm)||62.0 x 52.9 mm|

|Suspension Type (Front)||Telescopic|

Bike gives good mileage in free roads about 40-45km/liter. But because of hilarious traffic jam of our locality it doesn’t give much than 30-32km/liter. Overly it’s good in term of mileage comparing bikes of this edition.
I prefer octane for fuel usage those who rides in Dhaka city like me, because it’s lighter than petrol and it’s good for city biking.
Pick-up and Braking
It has ready pick for this it’s speed can be increased with less gears. But its braking doesn’t goes well with its ready pick-up. Its breaking system is quit poor rather than other bikes, which can be the major cause of accidents with this bike
It has 5 gear’s. But because of ready pick-up facility we can get good speed at 2nd and 3rd gear’s.
It doesn’t have speed recording facility for this I couldn’t record the top speed. But it’s quiet good in time of speed. My top speed was 115km/h in my journey to gabtoti with my fellow friends.
- It has ready pick-up
- Disk brake works quiet well
- Available parts
- Parts doesn’t hampers easily
- Fuel costs less
- Less maintenance needed
- Less controlling capacity
- Tyres of Tvs company aren’t that much good
- Breaking isn’t advanced with ready pick-up
- At top speed bike vibrates
- Part’s costs high amount comparing to other bikes
Its my humble request to everyone. Please, do wear helmet while you are riding. Be safe.
