    Q. Which one is better Pulsar NS200 or Tvs apache rtr 2004v?
    • I have always been a fan of Pulsar Ns 200, but when it comes to Engine refinement and exhaust sound there is no comaprison to Apache rtr 200 4v. Now coming to Engine power, Ns has quite powerful output in terms of bhp which 23.7 in comparison to Apache mere 20.73 bhp. Also Ns has 0.3 Nm more torque than Apache.When it comes to long crusing over highways, Pulsar beats Apache at its peak with 6 gearbox as compared to Apache's 5 gearbox which helps Pulsar to attain top speed of around 145-150kmph. Both bikes have equal milegae output ie. Somewhere between 38-45kmpl (depends on how you drive)I just bought a New pulsar Ns 2019 Abs, clocked at around 178 kms and i guarantee you that i have never been more happier in my life.Only thing i miss in Pulsar 200Ns is Exhaust but seriously that is no big issue, you can install a much powerful exhaust (Akrapovic) which comes around 4000-6000 INR, and trust its the best exhaust avilable out there, put in some K&N air filters, use Motul Synthetic oil, install Hydraulic lever and you have got the Beast on two wheels. (These are the ideas from my Pulsar 200Ns, i assure you next time you see a Apache 200 rtr 4v on a highway, you are gonna pass it over like its a piece of cake on wheels😅 lol. Goodluck with your machine.
    • In our comparison test with the TVS Apache RTR 200 4V, the NS200 came across as a well-balanced package that’s ideal for your daily city runs, occasional highway cruising and even for some fun on the twisties. The Bajaj Pulsar NS200 offers a lot more grunt, better-stopping power and well-balanced ergonomics in comparison to the TVS Apache RTR 200 4V. It also feels a lot more relaxed at high speeds. The TVS Apache RTR 200 4V is a comfortable city bike with plenty of grunt and agility for a quick race off the traffic lights and to tackle some twisties as well. But the engine feels too strained out on the highway. Also, ergonomically, with the high-set footpegs it’s a tight spot for someone taller than 5 feet 10 inches. Even the brakes fail to inspire confidence under hard braking. Luckily though, TVS does offer ABS as an option. But then, the Bajaj Pulsar NS200 also gets ABS, a single-channel unit. Apart from that, the Bajaj is also a more well rounded motorcycle that does everything just right. The ride quality too is better on the Bajaj. So, if your daily riding consists more of city commutes, the TVS Apache RTR 200 4V is the way to go. But if you are looking to ride your bike out on the highway as well, the Bajaj Pulsar NS200 is a more potent tool to opt for.
    • Pulsar NS200 falls in the price range of Rs. 1.0 to 1.11 lakh (Ex-showroom, Delhi). The naked street-fighter retains the single cylinder, liquid cooled, triple spark, 199.5cc DTS-i engine which generates 23.5PS of maximum power at 9500rpm and 18.3Nm of peak torque at 8000rpm. It comes with an option of single-channel ABS as well & has claimed mileage of 30kmpl with a top speed of 135kmph.

It is the new iteration of TVS's 200cc motercycle which is equipped with slipper clutch that reduces the clutch lever effort and its 197cc air and oil-cooled single cylinder motor comes in two variants: carburetted and fuel injected. The carburetted mill makes 20.5PS at 8500rpm while the fuel injected one makes a slightly higher 21PS at 8500rpm. In safety feature RTR 200 has optional dual channel ABS that reduces the breaking distance while improving the staibility.

    Q. Which one is best in mileage ns 200 or apache 200 4v ???
    • If you want go for 200cc bike you should not look to mileage because if you take bike by looking mileage you will take apache200 4v but after that you will not get proper service even Apache 200 4v indicator bulb is not available on service centre from this you should think about the service of TVS
    • Depends if you tall above 6ft apache whether it might be good is a no go your knees will be crammed while below 5ft8in ns is no go you'll have to struggle as you have to balance on one leg otherwise apache is a soft rider while ns a bit harsh and while comfort is with apache performance is with ns. looks are personal perspective I like apache's looks but drive ns200 apache is better for city and touring can be done too ns is perfect for touring city rides are a bit harsh as it heats up more and isn't as agile as apache
    • I think apache 200 is easier to ride in the city whereas pulsar 200 is more powerful but the power is not usable in the city traffic as it takes time to build up. So, if you ride in moderate to heavy traffic conditions, rtr 200 is better, it also offers better handling and brakes.if you ride in light traffic conditions then pulsar is the better choice, although it does not handle all that well.

    Q. Is it better than Apache 200 - Pulsar NS200?
    • Well the answer depends on one's need. Pulsar ns200 is more of a mid range & top end range performer means that it will perform better on highways with good top speed higher then the Apache & you can cruise easily in the range of 80-110kmph, the Apache is not that great to be ridden above triple digits it feels to dragged. Apache is made to be very maneuverable so easy to use in city etc also a very good cornering machine. Hence one can choose as per the need. I chose the NS because do long rides so it helps to keep up with a good pace for longer kms.
    • Pulsar 200 NS is best mileage and top speed and better stopping power than compared with apache 200
