Review of Apache

ABOUT MY BIKERating: Excellent

"APACHE" its a name of a fighter in air force, really its like a jet plain. comparing with those bikes which are having 150c.c available in market, Apache is the best bike. it's having great pick-up as well as milliege. I am using the bike from 2010 january 27th I never felt bore while riding, its road grip is awesome, pick-up is very nice. its nice in economy side. but lacks in gare shifting and little bit hard while riding and if I cross 60 km/h its having some shacking on the road. That's draw back for Apache. and economy is great feature for Apache. and totally its a awesome bike.
