Hero Xtreme 200R vs. TVS Apache RTR 200

Hero Xtreme 200R vs TVS Apache RTR 200: Xtreme 200R, the recently introduced flagship street fighter from Hero MotoCorp, is a value for money gem in itself. Who would have imagined that 2018 will see an ABS-equipped bike from the 200cc segment for INR 89,900? Still, the term became a reality through this impressive machine and challenged both Apache RTR 200 and Pulsar NS200 in a single go. TVS benefits from two major points, one being the inclusion of a slipper clutch and other, the dual channel ABS. Hero MotoCorp stays on the other edge and attracts buyers with more concern regarding pricing and commuter-oriented use.

Apache RTR 200 is powered by a 197.75cc engine. The output of 20.23 BHP is still high in comparison to just 18.1 BHP from Xtreme 200R. The torque value on Xtreme 200R is also 1 Nm lower than its closest competitor. The price difference of ABS-equipped variants is INR 21,000 while base RTR 200 is more expensive by INR 7000. Apache may be a better-looking street-specific approach in motorcycling but denying the fact that Xtreme 200R also catch eyeballs would be a shame. Hero has a different game in mind with this model and, they won’t stop before taking down other existing candidates of this segment.
