Q. Is KTM 125 better than Apache RTR 160 4V and Yamaha R15 V3 - Duke 125?
  • Well the 125 gives u less power but I think is good for long periods and distance coverage
  • R15 v3 is better
Q. Which one is better between R15 V3 and RS200?
  • We rode the new R15 v3.0 on both the racetrack and in the real world. While the R15 has grown larger and more powerful, it needs a certain level of expertise to tame. The more committed ergonomics make for an uncomfortable ride in the city. If you are looking for a dynamically competent bike that you’d like to hone your riding skills on and don't mind the committed riding position, the Yamaha R15 v 3.0 is the one to go for. It's a bike we'd love to have in our garage but its ergonomics limit its practicality. On the other hand, the Bajaj Pulsar RS200 certainly scores a few brownie points when it comes to engine refinement and performance. It is also well loaded with nifty features such as projector headlamps with LED DRLs, a backlit semi-digital instrument console and ABS. All in all, those looking for an affordable, fully-faired bike with sporty characteristics, the RS200 is certainly an attractive buy.

  • Now r15 v3 it has the race DNA and track ergonomics.Yamaha this time didnt compromise performance for looks as in a v2.Its the best in 150 cc segment..Rc 200 is a track oriented race machine if you are a beginner go for r15.rv is a great choice which can be compared to Apache rtr or cbr 350 or rr 310 from the.
  • If you want more aggressive riding posture and you are corner enthusiastic then you should go for r15 v3 and you can also do weekend rides on it if you want want to go for long rides without taking many stops then rs200 is a good option

  • Both are completely different from each other.. As they both built on same platform and use of same parts the handling is similar.. If need power blindly go for duke 200 it is the best revving engine in the low end... Need a mileage with ktm looks then go for Duke 125... If your on budget & planning for duke 125 instead go for the Pulsar 200 NS it makes more sense then buying of same priced duke 125
  • Duke 200 is the best if you need the power.. duke 125 isn't the best in performance ... to make it simple Duke 200 gives you good low end power with avg mileage of 28-33 kmpl sometimes 35kmpl if you are not hard on throttle... Duke 125 doesn't have such power but has the ktm DNA and dynamics as it was built on same duke 200 platform but due to high low cc you'll getting a good mileage of 45kmpl
