Q. Which is best MT-15 or Duke 125?
  • According to your question ,MT 15 is more comfort with a power full engine.duke 125 is not bad ,it has 124 cc engine but it compitating with 150 cc bikes.both are good.
  • Well looking at price point I would say duke 125 is worth it but if you are looking for power then definitely go for mt-15 . Even though mt-15 has bigger cc engine it can still provide 50 km mileage .Note : Does not know the mileage capabilities of duke 125.
  • First thing both are quite overpriced for what they offer and there are lot other bikes that offer good performance at a better price looks aren't the only thing that matters prefer indian brands they offer better quality and at low cost

  • Ns 200 is a 200 cc segment bike.it has more power ful engine more than MT. if you are searching for a comfort,powerful bike both are good.MT is a 150 segment bike .both bikes are different in power. but in looks both are aggressive and muscular. comparitively MT 15 is more aggressive than NS 200.
  • Mt15 - bulletproof reliability+ advanced features+satisfactory performance both for daily commute + long ride ....overall you don't have to worry about sudden breakdown or other sudden issuesNs200- very poor reliability+very less advanced features+little bit better performance than mt15 ,but overall a headache as quality is poor ,but till it is good it is more enjoyable ,but at the moment it creates problem it becomes a headache and junk in your garage
  • Ns200 it might not have radical looks but it is less costly than mt both are pretty much same as for durability performance no doubt ns riding ergonomics ns for low traffic and highway mt for heavy traffic and city also ns with long wheelbase is more stable than mt

Q. Which bike will be best Apache RTR 200 new edition or MT 15?
  • See both of them are very different in terms of engine performance and features and also crucial pricing. Mt-15 features state of art 155 cc engine with vvt and liquid cooling which does give it edge in top end. Whereas rtr is relatively simple with 4 valve and oil cooled engine which gives it strong low and mid range punch. And to be very frank the pricing of Mt-15 is way to high so i will suggest go for top of the line rtr 200 with abs and pirelli tyres combination. You can also look at fz 25.
  • Apache 200 4v is better for city riding. provides good acceleration in initial and mid rev band but flats out at top speed and it lacks 6th gear. while mt has good top end and it reaches higher top speed. if you are planning to ride a lot in city you can go for apache and it is good for not so long rides. I ride for 75 to 80 km on my weekend trips and I have have not found any issues related to riding posture.
  • If you want a powerful machine go for Apache rtr 200 it is value for money , it has got slipper clutch also. But only downside is it only has 5 gears. Incase of mt15 it has got very stylish looks and it's liquid cooled engine and has good mileage. If you have money then go for mt15
