PW, Fiero is a comfortable bike over long distances, but if you find the Fiero uncomfortable then you would definitely wouldn't like the seating position of the Apache RTR. Apache RTR would be a bit cramped for your dimensions.

I can manage Fiero for a 250 km trip, anything more than that gives me quite severe back and leg pain. I think my height is the culprit here. I would be upgrading my bike next year and was just wondering whether RTR Fi should be considered. Thanks

Yes Roopak. But instead of the RTR Fi it's a Karizma

apache appears to be a small bike. but once you sit on the saddle its not all that small. may be due to the seating position which is quite agressive. it might hurt your back in a longer ride though, rode friend's yellow rtr fi some days back. the exhaust note was what i liked the most. i dont have to tell you about its pickup everyone knows about that

I booked the yellow RTR FI for my dad. I test drove it a lilbit. It felt like a bicycle to me as I am used to riding my big FZ6 back in US.
