Overall Good Experience
I bought the top model on 17th February 2022 as my first bike. Here are some pros I have observed in only this bike at such a price range. 1) adjustable levers (mildly useful). 2)slipper clutch (very very useful). 3)gear indicator (very useful). 4) rear view mirrors(best in the market). 5)dual channel abs. 6)urban mode saves petrol and results in excellent mileage. (i got 44.3litres with power petrol from a shell company (115rs per litre). 7)the torque feels amazing even in urban mode and the bike is 150kgs+70kg(my weight).8) side stand cutoff is also available from this year.9)gtt is very useful for beginners like me. 10)horn is very loud. I think it's even louder than some cars. Now here are some cons I have faced that I wasn't aware of before buying this vehicle. 1) overweight people can't sit as a pillion due to stepping up and splitting seats. 2)side stand length is small therefore bike leans at an even more acute angle than other bikes, Therefore the risk of the bike falling especially while parked in sand/grass or soft ground. 3) shifting to neutral is a hassle because of the gears being so smooth. Sometimes when you want 2ndgear while driving it will shift to neutral first and then you have to shift again. And while parking when you shift for neutral from 1st gear it will skip to 2nd xd). 4)biggest con I guess is the large turning radius, especially for a beginner. Tyres are also thin in accordance with the size of the bike(same tyres as of rtr160). 5)review Bluetooth functions-a)GPS display on the instrument cluster is useless because the GPS of TVs connect app is very bad. You can't connect google maps or any other GPS with your bike. B)call message text alert-very useful and applicable. C) lean angle is accurately measured and recorded in the app. D) routes and distances covered are also accurate. E)gear shifting patterns are very useful and accurate for beginners like me. I think everyone should at least consider this bike (especially beginners) when looking to buy a new bike. I researched bikes for 8months before getting my hand on this one. I had booked mt15 and rtr160special edition also but cancelled both of them when my mind got stuck on apache200.This bike is the queen of its segment.No debate. Of course, NS200 is a great bike but almost no one nowadays buys a motorcycle for its high torque and power and enjoying high speeds (125+). If you need to ride constantly long distances at speeds above 100+kmph then you should not consider apache200. I live in a crowded city with mild to high traffic and considering my lifestyle and surrounding environment my purchase was worth the wait of 8months.
Usage: I use this for a daily commute and the occasional long tours. Comfort: I added an extra cushion to the seats to make them comfortable for both commuting and touring. Overall, decent comfort if I take breaks after every 45mins-1hour of riding. Engine and performance: This 200 carb edition is not as refined as the 160, however, the performance and throttle are fantastic and lives true to the RTR badging. This is a fun bike to ride and is easy to manoeuvre in traffic. For long rides, I always feel a 6th gear is lacking. Mileage: I have been getting a consistent 30-35kmpl in peak Mumbai city traffic and around 40-45kmpl on the highways. I would have expected more mileage from this bike since its power is the lowest in the segment. While the overall fit and finish are great, certain components wear, tear and rust easily and are difficult to find spare parts. Conclusion: Good motorcycle, unrefined yet fun.
Apache to stay away from
Best power in the segment, riding posture is awesome, ride quality is significant, riding modes are doing their works perfectly fine not fitted just for showoff.
The overall bike is good in terms of comfort and performance but when you're paying 1.6l for the bike you expect it to be a little bit premium inbuilt quality which this bike is not. Plastic and metal cuttings around the edges don't feel very premium and many of them are unfinished. Comfort is good, It is just the rear suspension is a little hard. The pillion seat is not comfortable at all, It feels uncomfortable after 5-10 min of the ride. It has modes but while riding it in sports mode which has maximum power, The meter console shows that the optimal rpm for sports mode is 6000+ which is a little bit too hard for the engine. I understand that it is a 200cc bike but still, it is not that big engine to ride it continuously above 6000 rpm, It'll produce a lot of heat. While riding it in the city and traffic, You can handle this bike very easily and its chassis is excellent to manoeuvre. I won't say this is the best 200cc bike but if your budget is 1.6l then this bike is the best you gonna get. Avoid KTM because it is overpriced. Ns is also a good competitor but it lacks in latest technology and features.
Pathetic service by surbhi enterprises or surbhi tvs in baldev nagar ambala city haryana.Just pathetic.No one knows how to handle customers.Parts of bike got damages withing 1.5 years and they don't even have parts in their center.They just know how to make money out of there customers.Today i just got my bike serviced and they don't even have seals of gear shift, Because of this engine oil is leaking.My front forks got leaked because of seals breaking.And they don't have this even.Pathetic service.Now i have both issue with bike front forks leakage and engine oil leakage because of gear shift seal.In feb 2020 my bike front rim got damage just because of normal p*t hole and they don't have this.After 8 month of time they arrange this and they told me now you have to renew your insurance.My firsr party bumper to bumper insurance got expired in may.Now i have to pay for insurance and after that for file charges and full amount of rim price which is 4500 to 5000 they are just pathetic with there services and parts availability.
