Recently Asked User Questions

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. 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.
  • Lot of people were asking this question. So I do little digging about this V4 engine. Whatever I will be now mentioning is compared to NS200.Apache V4 engine is known for fast riding, Better pick up and maximum torque, There will be also less engine noise.NS200 has Triple Spark Engine, It's India developed technology, It usse the fuel in three cycle not in two comparing to other bikes. This is the reason you will easily get 40-42KM/L on highway and above 35 in city. For me NS wins
  • Both these bikes are best at their point NS 200 is more powerful , top end of the bike is awesome and liquid cooling is available, preferd towards tall riders Apache 200 is newly refined engine with sporty looks compared to ns 200 the looks of ns200 is outdated and is available in market since 6 years, Apache200 handling is better than ns 200 , exhaust note of Apache is amazing compared to ns200 cusioning of seats are better in Apache 200 , sporty DRLS, best for city riding, and about mileage,Apache also defeats ns200 in mileage company claims 44 kmpl for Apache and 35 kmpl for ns200 but rather it depends on riding bike I had achieved around 38-40 kmpl in city on my Apache Apache gets dual channel abs and slipper clutch

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

  • Bajaj Pulsar NS200
  • TVS Apache RTR 200 4V
  • Good bike in terms of performance(in terms of 200 segments) and mileage(if you drive like a human for first couple of months). To keep the bike in good condition you need to maintain it and drive it like a cool minded guy or girl, keeping all that in mind then bike will allow you keep riding it like a hooligan.The sound is awesome at high revs.Breaks are smooth not so sharp, so super beginner friendly.Styles and looks always 5 star.Get a crash guard and a break guard it surely have a plus point.

  • Ns200 bs6 is the most powerfull bike i have ever ridden in this sagement.It's fi engine claims a great ammount of punch in low end.Also it's 24.5 bhp helps to hit almost 145+kms in top end.The suspensions are slightly in stiffer side but there is no compromise with riding comfort in this bike.It's seating posture helps you to roll 2 to 3 hours nonstop.Ns200 is also a good coice for long ride.Specially for hill ride.

  • 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.

  • 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
