First off, good choice of 200cc bike , and a very nice question too :)Well here are a few points to be noted about Carb and FI variants. Carb. :1. Easy maintenance. Any mechanic can easily assist you in case of emergency. 2. In case of failure, the carburettor can be easily replaced Fuel injection:1 .Linear power delivery. No sudden acceleration. 2 . Cold start is not a problem, a little thumb power can get the vehicle running in no time, even in coldest of days 3. In case of failure, the system has to be completely replaced, which is going to cost a lot, comparatively. 4. Better mileage, since the amount of fuel delivered to the system is controlled and monitored. I guess the above points might assist you in making the decision. Personally, I own the carburetted version, because I find it more engaging and fun to ride around. I suggest you test ride both the variants and then make your decision. Happy riding.
I once did a 380+ km journey from Bangalore to Kerala. The sound it makes once you hit 138kmph is an absolute pleasure to listen. Moreover, towards the end of the journey, it was filled with ghat roads and this bike had no problem maneuvering. Mileage was around 36kmpl even after constant revving at 110-120kmph. In my opinion, there can never be a better 200cc segment bike than this one
Ha long tour pe leke jaa skte ho magar mere mai ek br ghumne gya tha friends k sath or raste me hi meri bike ka spark plug pura jal gya tha malum nahi kaise bht mushkil k baad mechanic mila tb gadi thik hui spark plug change krne k baad or waise bhi meri gadi abhi tk 4000 km chali h zyada time bhi nahi hua h fir bhi spark plug itne jaldi jal gaya
Did a journey of 450 kms in a day and honestly speaking the bike was smooth. I was doing an average of 100+ kmph. Achieved 126kmph top speed while reaching the destination. It has good stability at high speed and good road grip. I would suggest you buy the ABS version.
Talking about the performance of the bike, After putting the RTR 200 Race 2.0 edition through some serious testing, it makes a strong case for itself by offering commuter-friendly dynamics, strong low and mid-range performance, a soft and comfortable ride, light clutch feel and higher fuel efficiency in the city. The Apache RTR 200 4V Race Edition 2.0 comes across as a strong proposition for someone who doesn’t have much of highway riding to do.Read More: TVS Apache RTR 200 Race Edition 2.0: Road Test Review: https://www.zigwheels.com/reviews-advice/reviews/tvs-apache-rtr-200-race-edition-20-road-test-review/30677/
This bike is good using it for 8months done 8600kms. Did a highway ride of total 450 km and to be honest it is good. The stability and road grips at high speed is good. In city the bike is good at short pick ups. In 200cc segment with dual channel abs and slipper clutch i think you should go for this bike. Other bikes like NS 200 and RS 200 can give you better top speed. But cannot provide dual channel abs and slipper clutch.
Tvs Apache rtr 200 4V comes pre installed with tvs remora tyres front and rear. TVS provides you options to choose for Pirelli's as well but i think remora is enough for daily ride and Pirelli's is good for track day events.As per my daily ride of 50kms i did'nt felt any issue of road grip.Tyres provides a good grip on roads but if want to use it in rainy day then it can be little slippery.But for daily commuting TVS remora tyres will be great.
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.

The Indian Government has also enforced the ABS mandate rule for all bikes (newly launched & existing) with engine capacity greater than 125cc from April next year. In April this year, the Government made ABS compulsory for all bikes (125cc and above) that are going to be launched henceforth. So, in might be possible that FI variant will get ABS but as on now there is no official update regarding ABS version with FI form the brand.
Obviously RTR 200 4V is better bike among these two because of reasons given below1.Styling :- RTR 160 4V is Downscaled Version of RTR 200 so looks are subjective this statement is not applicable here And if you will look in pictures RTR 160 4V will look equally good but in real life the difference is apparent in RTR 200 it looks wider and musculer and has splitted seats and gold coloured front forks which stands it out from the commuter crowd.2.Performance :- here also RTR 160 4V can't even stand a chance and there is no argument that RTR 200 4V is sportier bike and it is faster by a big margin whether it is acceleration or top speed RTR 200 will always ho faster and will give you more adrenaline rush.3.Mileage :- mileage is slightly better on RTR 160 4V but it is not a big difference, only 5 kmpl will be lesser on RTR 200 4V in normal riding condition RTR 200 4V gives a mileage of 37-40 and RTR 160 4V gives a mileage of 42-45 but if you are a hardcore rider and if you will ride your bike mostly on highways and if you will ride your bike on speeds like 100 and 110 then RTR 200 4V will give you more mileage because as a 160 cc bike it will be the top end for RTR 160 4V and as my friend told and as i have saw it on youtube milage goes down to 32-35 kmpl and for RTR 200 that speeds are normal because it is 200 cc bike and it is easier for a 200 cc engine to maintain 100 kmph constant speed and it will give normal mileage under these conditions4.handling :- Here also RTR 200 4V's Handling is better than RTR 160 4V's handling because RTR 160 4V has Wide Handlebar and RTR 200 4V has Clip on handlebar and clip on handlebars are known for their sporty handling so if you like cornering so much than RTR 200 is the perfect bike as it also offers you super stickey and grippy Pirelli tyres which are absent on RTR 160 4V5.Comfort :- here both bikes are eqaully good and you might think that RTR 200 4V has clipon handlebars so it will more aggressive and less comfortable but it is not the case because it's handlebars are raised Clip-Ons and they doesn't affect comfort and RTR 160 4V's Wide handlebars are also similar to other bikes in it's segment so both of them give you same comfort.6.Refinement and Vibrations :- if you are thinking that RTR 200 4V and RTR 160 4V are similiar to RTR 160 and RTR 180 than it is not the case both bikes are so much refined and they have very less vibrations which are present only in top end and in top end also vibes are very negligible.7.Features :- RTR 160 4V is very feature rich bike but it can't stand a chance against it's father RTR 200 4v which has more features than RTR 160 4V like Gear position indicator and better looking instrument cluster because of white backlight and it comes with slipper clutch which and it is first bike to have Slipper Clutch in it's segment and it is very rare in higher segments also and it is a very useful feature it is far better than normal clutch and both bikes have ABS on board but the ome on RTR 200 4V is Dual channel ABS so It is Functional on both the tyres front and real while RTR 160 have single channel ABS and it is only operational only on front tyre so if you will press rear brake suddenly then rear wheel will end up in locking and slipping.8.Verdict :- if you are on tight budget than RTR 160 4V makes sence but if budget is not concern and you can spend about 20 thousands more you can end up buying a better bike.Thanks
It depends on your budget nd mileage...Both the bikes are best sellers in their segments you will get slightly better mileage in 160 Fi abs than rtr 200 fi nd you have to pay slightly lesser for 160cc...Rtr 200 has an edge over 160 in terms of ART-Slipper clutch...both the bikes are almost similar you can't get wrong with any of the two so choose according to your need nd mileage.
Both the bikes are good and value for the money bikes in their segment. If you require more power then you can go for TVS Apache RTR 200 4V Race Edition 2.0 and if you are on a budget and require a frugal fun to ride bike then you can go for TVS Apache RTR 160 4V.

The RTR Ethanol runs on E85 ethanol that is an oxygenated fuel similar to petrol but made from plant matter. Most petrol engines can be run on ethanol but need revised changes to the fuel system, that allows them to run with the higher air-fuel mixture that ethanol requires. And helping with that change is the twin-spray-twin-port fuel injectors that the RTR Ethanol is equipped with. If we talk about the mileage it will return about 22 to 23 kmpl. As government hasn't initiated ethanol fuel stations so we have to wait for its launch till we get ethanol fuel pumps in the country.

Fuel injection is the introduction of fuel in the engine by means of an injector. Fuel injector generally used in diesel engines earlier but now a days in petrol engines FI has replaced Carburetor. The main difference between FI and Carburetor is that FI atomizes the fuel through a small nozzle, while Carburetor relies on suction generated by the intake air accelerated through a Venturi tube to draw the fuel into the airstream.
There is two type of engines in bike like Fuel injection nd carburettor.Fuel injection is completely new technology nd being adopted by the indian manufacturers these days.Other countries adopted these technologiesMuch early but indian manufactures are adopting now a days. IT is still costly than carburettor model.Benefits- better throttle Response Better fuel efficiency Less maintenance Much better cold starting.
Fuel injection system is an electronically controlled circuit that allows the proper air fuel mixture into the combustion chamber. Fuel injection is a system forces fuel directly into the part of the engine where it is burned. Generally the engines with the fuel injection technology are more refined.

Both bikes come with 5 gears. engine capacity is different though. I haven’t ridden FZ25. But FZ25 doesn’t comes with ABS and from the safety point of view RTR ABS is good. But few issues with RTR is its stock headlamp doesn’t have enough power for night view, though high beam has enough to see. It comes with Carb only with ABS. Carb seems to feel outdated in this 21st century. On the pros side, it has beautiful weight distribution, the bike feel perfectly balanced to manoeuvre in city traffic, catches 100kmph so sweetly and runs butter smooth. I’ve done 130kmph in my RTR 200 ABS. Instrument cluster has whole lot of information. You don’t need to watch wrist watch or take out your smartphone when you’re late for the office and stucked in the traffic. Clutch feels light (my friend who has Avenger Street 220 said he has got the feel and meaning of Slipper Clutch after riding my machine). FZ25 has refined engine with EFI. But it has ordinary instrument cluster, doesn’t comes with ABS. Bottom line: I would suggest you to wait till 2019 April, you’ll get lot of options to choose from. You’ll get all bikes with ABS and FI will also come in many bikes. Or else EFI will make its way in all bikes from 2020 to comply the BS6 norms. 2019 May also marks the production of BS6 engines from many brands. And if you can’t wait to rev the engine then you should buy RTR ABS as safely is more important than the refinement of EFI (RE Classic 350 the best selling motorcycle of the country still comes CV Carburettor, this has helped me to get my set of wheels). Have a safe ride. Cheers!!!
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. On the other hand, the Yamaha FZ25 is a good option for someone looking for a daily commuter. It’s a lot more welcoming for tall riders as well, when compared to the TVS Apache RTR 200 4V. Being a Yamaha, the FZ25 will prove to be reliable in the long run, looks smart and is a lot more frugal in the city. But the engine feels stressed at high speeds. Moreover, both the brakes and tyres don’t inspire confidence under hard braking either. We would suggest you to take a test ride in order to clear your all doubts.

Look at the end of the day a bike is a bike. It all depends on your taste and preference and whom you wish to support. Yes ABS is amazing for a bike, but I find it pointless for any bike to have it under the 300cc bracket. The FZN250 offer's you disk brake's on both front and back wheel's giving you more than needed braking power. It all lies in the technique, experience and usage of the bike. You must learn to use brake's otherwise any bike is a death machine. I suggest going for the FZN250 as it is very cost effective and is made by a trusted company and has never let customers down in it's service.
Go for RTR 200 ABS without thinking further. FZ25 is an u**y looking bike. its costly as well. and for a city and even on highways it would be very rare that you will drive above 120. within speeds upto 120 RTR is a superb bike, perfect balance, super ride quality, suspension and especially handling. I own it, bought it 7 months back and the experience is awesome. the bike feels heavy, yet very agile which every apache is.
I don't think that TVS is gonna launch it soon enough because simply of the price and as well FI are costly to maintain and need sound technician. If we take price as consideration then Fi+ABS will retail at 1.25L-1.3L ex showroom and on road it will cost approximately 1.5L to 1.65L that would be ridiculously pricy
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.

I have been riding this bike for more than a year. I rode it for around 11,000 kilomtres and i havent faced any major issues with it. I really loved the way its instrument console is put together. Gives you a lot of information. In simpler words, it can be a pure commuter in traffic as well as a perfect sports tourer on open highways.
