Q. Which one is best Dominar 250 or Apache 200 4v both in build quality and resale and Long lasting performance?
  • Dominar 250 is better in build quality, RTR is better in resale value and long lasting performance.
Q. Which is better RTR 200 ABS or Fz25? What is mileage of both?
  • As a owner of rtr 200 4v i am telling you why i chose rtr 200 over fz 25 and then i will tell you why you should opt for fz 25 so let's start with rtr's pros over fz's1.Exhaust note: exhaust note of both the bikes are music to the ear of a rider but in my personal opinion I think RTR's exhaust note is likely superior to that of FZ's 20 exhaust note2. handling characteristics: handling of bobber bikes is so good but RTR's handlingis slightly superior to that of FZ's handling due to the sporty nature of the bike3. suitability: as a short rider I prefer RTR's riding dynamics more than FZS because RTR footpegs is slightly closer to the seat than that of FZS foot pegs so it becomes specially comfortable for short riders while FZ is neutral to the the all size of riders4 pricing: as you know that RTR is is slightly cheaper than FZ and it fulfills my needs also so I preferred RTR over FZnow the points in which which FZ is ahead of RTR1. there is no replacement for displacement: yes it is true because when you will write FZ it will surely feel that it is 250 cc bike and when you will ride RTR then it will give feel of 200 cc bike that exactly it is so if you need more torquey engine more usable power than FZ is quite ahead2: engine refinement: both the bikes are very refined with negligible vibrations but when you're considering specifically for the refinement of the engine then Yamaha is is slightly ahead of TVS and this improves the fuel economy of the FZ i own Apache so I know that its mileage is slightly less than that of every despite of having a smaller engine and slightly less power it gives less mileage so if you love mileage FZ25 should be your pick3: suitability: as I have mentioned earlier that RTR is specially made for shorter riders and it doesn't fits well with the medium-sized rider and the taller riders but it is not the case with the FZ which suits well with all sizes of riders so if you are a rider on taller side FZ should be your pick4. value for money: in spite of RTR being cheaper it is the FZ that is more value for money because it gets bigger engine better mileage and it gets Fi and abs together in that price which is not the case with the RTR rs people because it's a vs model doesn't have Fi so you can not call it value for moneyfinal verdict: both the bikes are very good you cannot go wrong with either of the bikes now it boils down to your personal preference and some subjective opinion that which bike looks more more pleasing to you and which brand is your favourite and the main point is here that what is your budget thanks
  • Both bikes come with 5 gears. engine capacity is different though. I haven’t ridden FZ25. But FZ25 doesn’t comes with ABS and from the safety point of view RTR ABS is good. But few issues with RTR is its stock headlamp doesn’t have enough power for night view, though high beam has enough to see. It comes with Carb only with ABS. Carb seems to feel outdated in this 21st century. On the pros side, it has beautiful weight distribution, the bike feel perfectly balanced to manoeuvre in city traffic, catches 100kmph so sweetly and runs butter smooth. I’ve done 130kmph in my RTR 200 ABS. Instrument cluster has whole lot of information. You don’t need to watch wrist watch or take out your smartphone when you’re late for the office and stucked in the traffic. Clutch feels light (my friend who has Avenger Street 220 said he has got the feel and meaning of Slipper Clutch after riding my machine). FZ25 has refined engine with EFI. But it has ordinary instrument cluster, doesn’t comes with ABS. Bottom line: I would suggest you to wait till 2019 April, you’ll get lot of options to choose from. You’ll get all bikes with ABS and FI will also come in many bikes. Or else EFI will make its way in all bikes from 2020 to comply the BS6 norms. 2019 May also marks the production of BS6 engines from many brands. And if you can’t wait to rev the engine then you should buy RTR ABS as safely is more important than the refinement of EFI (RE Classic 350 the best selling motorcycle of the country still comes CV Carburettor, this has helped me to get my set of wheels). Have a safe ride. Cheers!!!
  • If you want better performance with comfort, go for apache. If you want looks and if you are a speed lover go with FZ.Apache plus points : Fully digital instrument cluster, exhaust sound, Riding posture, comfort, low maintenanceApache drawbacks : halogen headlight, chain noise, neutral gear indicator, tyre sizeFZ plus points : LED headlights, looks, power, broad tyres, instrument clusterFZ drawbacks : price, headlamp spread, relatively high maintenanceALL THE BEST !!! Keep Riding !!!

Q. Should i buy TVS Apache RTR 200 4V ABS or wait for MT-15?
  • See Apache is good for the city ride but don't expect the good milage.....but pick is good.....but take a test drive of the mt-15 so if u feel the bike comfortable and pick over all 360degree u have compare and then u buy
  • Rtr 2004v for race like dynamics...mt 15 is a naked designed for streets.soits up to you.but mt15 can do all which space can do
  • Apache is better than mt 15 and also low cost. It gives you slipper clutch and dual channel abs at Rs. 1.4L on road Kolkata. Where the ex-showroom price of mt 15 is Rs. 1.36 offering only single channel abs

  • It's the best quarter litre in the segment.Stability and power is good enough for touring especially on highways.The maintenance cost is very less as compared to other quarter litres in the indian market.

    Arvind Pantola few weeks ago

  • I bought this Bike for the College Purpose using it for 2 years, And Really 101% satisfied with the bike. The initial acceleration of the Bike is Just Awesome... seats are also very comfortable for the driver as well as for the Pillion🤟🏻 Engine is very Smooth and Refined 20.5 PS of power is enough... the styling of the bike is also awesome.. you can Get to the highways as well as in city any time... riding position is also Good... maintenance cost is Low ... but too much vibration at High speed... if you go 110+ you"ll definitely feel the vibrations in the handle and Foot rests.... It could get LEDs but Halogen is sufficient at night.... missing the USD Forks .... getting mileage of 38-40 kmpl....

  • This is best 200 cc bike in india.Feature you get in this bike you don't get on any bike.Reviewed and did a lot of research before making the purchase.I was about to buy ktm duke 200 but it's too expensive for a 200 cc bike when i saw rtr 200 4v and the feature, Performance, Ride quality, And fuel efficiency it was the best.If you are looking to buy a new 200cc bike then it's the bike to go for.

    Rahul Dubey few weeks ago
  • It is a brilliant vehicle with strong low end and midrange, easy and comfortable for daily commute, the only issue I faced so far is the gearbox, false neutrals happen too often, plus shifting down to 2nd gear, the gear lever tends to be stuck until you give acceleration

    Arun Sabu few weeks ago
