Q. Which one is better R15 v3 or KTM RC 200?
  • 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. That's the reason it can not be our primary everyday bike. On the other hand, the RC 200 has set the bar quite high for the entry-level sports bike segment. The committed ergonomics might not be everyone’s cup of tea but if you are looking for cornering dynamics with an added dose of power but are on a budget, your search ends here.Read More: - 2017 KTM RC 200: First Ride Review In Images: https://www.zigwheels.com/gallery/bikesslideshow/2017-ktm-rc-200-first-ride-review-in-images/27324/1/1 - Yamaha R15 v3.0 Road Test Review: https://www.zigwheels.com/reviews-advice/reviews/yamaha-r15-v30-road-test-review/30566/
  • Both are best in there own ways.For RC 200:1)Engine is much better than R15 V3 2) Initial power is more3)Fuel Efficiency:35-45 km/L4) Maintenance cost is more comparing to V35)Top speed:138Km/H6)No vibration at all7) Excellent brightness for the both Dim & Highbeam For R15 V3:1) Fuel Efficiency:45-502) Maintenance cost is less3) Initial power is less comparing to Rc2004)Top speed: 160Km/H 5)Low brightness for the headlights
  • RC 200 much better option than R15 V3 but only if you budget permits it provides an adjustable suspension with the very other body that can do well on track as well as on normal roads but if you are running short on budget then go for an 583 has optimum performance with in its budget.

Q. Duke 200 vs 250 which one better to Buy ?
  • The 250 Duke is quicker off the line, and mid-range punch is particularly strong, with performance tapering off at the top of the rev range rather expectedly. Cross 4000rpm and the motor buzzes to life, accelerating hard. On the other hand the new engine sounds calmer, less loud and more mature than the 200’s raspy sound. We are yet to test the bike for performance, but the 250 Duke feels quicker than the 200 Duke by a fair margin. In-gear acceleration is quicker – a mere twist of the throttle is required to overtake at most times thanks to its close gear ratios, courtesy the bigger rear sprocket. KTM couldn’t confirm the difference but the 250’s sprocket is bigger than the 200’s. The engine feels refined, with just a hint of vibration from the footpegs which never really got distracting. The 250 Duke also felt more relaxed and comfortable cruising at triple digit speeds, as the higher torque output lets the engine spin at lower revs than the 200 Duke at speeds of 100-120kmph, which should make it a better tourer. The 250 Duke misses out on the 390’s ride-by-wire but throttle response is quick thanks to the quick-revving engine and corners exits thanks to the response and the torquey mill are quick.

  • If you like the looks of Duke 390 but do not want so much power in bike, you can go for Duke 250.Duke 250 is significantly pricier than 200 but comes with certain advantages like the impressive design similar to 390, dual channel ABS, a balanced engine which makes it an all-rounder whether you ride within the city or on highways.Duke 200 has its own attractive design, a powerful engine and price advantage.
  • If u dont care about latest styling go for duke 200. If u want latest styling go for Duke 250. Mileage is almost same. Duke 250 cost ~35 k more.Duke 200 has single channel ABS rear wheel can lock on hard braking. Duke 250 has dual channel ABS so no worries of wheel getting locked on hard braking. Duke 250 is heavier in weight. I bought Duke 250.

Q. Which is better Duke 250 & Ktm rc 200?
  • The RC 200 has set the bar quite high for the entry-level sports bike segment. The committed ergonomics might not be everyone’s cup of tea but if you are looking for cornering dynamics with an added dose of power but are on a budget, your search ends here. Whereas, KTM 200 Duke has been the benchmark bike of its segment and still remains so. If you’re looking for a bike that offers great acceleration, loves to corner and has a hooligan nature, the 200 Duke is the bike for you and a great option for someone entering the world of performance bikes. The only grouse we have with the KTM 200 Duke is its super stiff ride quality and the fact that ABS isn’t offered even as an option.
  • Bro the answer to your question is two foldIf you want superb style with committed race ergonomics go for the rc but remember that a pillion on the rc is not too comfortable so if like me u take girls or as in my case a girlfriend on your bike daily the duke 250 is perfect for you as it has both an awesome design as well as comfortable ergonomics which girls do not complain a lot about .So long story short if u have an girlfriend go for the duke 250 trust me u will thank me later or if you are into racing and supermoto style definitely go for the rc 200 also the cooling is far better on the duke 250than on the rc 200 Good luck with your bike ride safe and wear a helmet
  • Ever since its debut, the KTM 200 Duke has been the benchmark bike of its segment and still remains so. If you’re looking for a bike that offers great acceleration, loves to corner and has a hooligan nature, the 200 Duke is the bike for you and a great option for someone entering the world of performance bikes. The only grouse we have with the KTM 200 Duke is its super stiff ride quality and the fact that ABS isn’t offered even as an option. On the other hand, the 2017 KTM 250 Duke is for someone who finds the new 390 Duke too expensive. It gets modern styling, powerful motor and top-spec cycle parts but the lack of ABS even as an option is disappointing.
