Q. What's the difference of TVS BS6 Apache RTR 160 4V and BS4?
  • Usually, BS6 motors produce a wee bit of less power and torque and you may observe the same in BS6 RTR 160 4V too.The 159.7cc, single-cylinder, oil-cooled engine now makes 16.02PS and 14.12Nm, which is 0.77PS and 0.68Nm less compared to the BS4 version. Moreover, it now comes equipped with fuel injection.Apart from the BS6 compliant engine, it gets a new sharp LED headlamp, new decals, and a dual-tone seat. Also, the brand has added GTT (Glide Through Traffic). This works as low RPM assist and should prove quite helpful in urban riding conditions.You may check out our dedicated article in order to know more about it.
Q. I am really confused with this three bikes Pulsar NS 200, Apache RTR 200 and Duke 200 which looks good?
  • Pulsar NS 200 has a muscular look whereas Apache and duke have a sleek design. I personally like the muscular look of the pulsar cause it just feels good to ride it. On the other hand, duke and apache have better tech in them. So for me, I would choose the Pulsar NS 200.
  • Bro you must go to duke 200.. aggressive street fighter in 200cc segment and also crazy design
  • Bro you must go to duke 200.. aggressive street fighter in 200cc segment and also crazy design
Q. I am confused to choose bike, NS 200 and Royal Enfield Classic 350, which one should I buy for a long use?
  • Depending on your everyday use.. Both bikes r gud, but ns will be aggressive, if you want sports bike go for ns 200, and if you want a easy commuter go for re350. Plz consider test riding both the bikes and also I will suggest take test ride of apache rtr200, the product is very promising.
  • If you want top speed and pickup with sporty feel go for ns200....else look out for jawa....RE classic is a piece of crap.
  • Ns 200
