The most popular segment of motorcycling these days, 200cc bikes in India changed how fans looked at lightweight performance. The credit goes to KTM Duke 200, making it the most performance specific 200cc bike of India. Riders looking for track performance can consider KTM RC 200 as it comes with a fully-faired body and similar levels of the straight-line performance. Both bikes cost too much and thus, buyers get other options like Yamaha FZ25 and Honda CBR250R to consider during their search.

Hero Xtreme 200S

The range of 200cc bikes starts from the Hero Xtreme 200R priced at INR 91,900. Hero MotoCorp has multiple bikes under this platform, with xPulse 200 Fi being the most expensive one from them. The 200cc bikes list now contains 10 bikes from different Indian manufacturers.

India’s first-ever ethanol-powered motorcycle, the TVS Apache E100 (RTR 200 Fi+ABS) has been officially launched in India at a price tag of INR 1.20 lakh (ex-showroom). The bike will be initially available in only 3 states: Maharashtra, Uttar Pradesh, and Karnataka.

The TVS Apache RTR 200 Fi E100 is based on the same design language as that of its petrol variant which is currently available for INR 1.11 lakh. The newly launched ethanol-powered bike from TVS was first unveiled at the 2018 Auto Expo.

The major differences that set it apart from its petrol sibling are the addition of green decals on the fuel tank as well as the use of eco-friendly bio-ethanol fuel. The ethanol is manufactured from sugarcane molasses and sorghum, that is basically an oxygenated mixture of alcohol and gasoline that makes way for much cleaner combustion as compared to the other fossil fuels.

TVS Apache E100 has been equipped with electronic fuel injection technology in order to ensure better power delivery. The fuel injection allows 50 per cent less Benzene and Butadiene gases to be emitted in the air making it one of the environment-friendly substitutions. The motorcycle is also equipped with 2-channel ABS as standard.

Powering the Apache RTR 200 Fi E100 is a 200cc single-cylinder engine capable of churning out a maximum power output of 21 HP at 8500 rpm and peak torque of 18.1 Nm at 7000 rpm. The engine is mated to a 5-speed gearbox. The company claims the top speed of the bike to be around 129 kmph.

Ethanol, when burned, emits 35% less Carbon Monoxide in the air when compared to the petrol-powered engines. Though there are no ethanol pumps in the country as of yet, the government is planning to install them in a short time. When available in India, the fuel will be available at a lesser price than that of petrol.

Commenting on the launch of Ethanol powered Apache RTR 200 FI, Venu Srinivasan, Chairman, TVS Motors stated: “TVS Motor Company believes that Ethanol-based products are an important option for our customers. This is due to the easy compatibility in the transition to Ethanol and its sustained positive impact on the environment without compromising on performance and total cost of ownership. TVS Apache RTR 200 Fi E100 is a breakthrough in the two-wheeler space that will set the trend for a green future in India.”

TVS Apache RTR 200 vs Hero Xtreme 200R vs Bajaj Pulsar NS200: Hero Xtreme 200R was recently launched in India for INR 89,900 (ex-showroom Delhi). This marks Hero MotoCorp’s entry into the 200cc segment, dominated by none other than Bajaj Pulsar NS200 and TVS Apache RTR 200. Fans are yet to decide the fate of all new Xtreme but still, potential hidden within this product cannot be underestimated.

Hero MotoCorp announced in their initial launch plans that primary focus will be on college students. Xtreme 200R is definitely a cost-effective product in all terms, whether it be pricing or servicing. Here is a statistical view of these three bikes, along with some valid reasons to consider each of them.

Styling is a subjective matter and thus, every human has an individual set of parameters to define beauty. Here in 200cc segment, aggression is the key weapon and Pulsar NS200 has very well used it for a long time. It looks typically street designed with lightest tail section and well-designed fuel tank design. RTR 200 is again a sculptured machine and attention to detail factors are very high here. The front headlight and tail design is actually a little blunt in front of Pulsar. Hero Xtreme 200R is more of like an everyday bike with decent front fascia and sporty rear end.

Xtreme 200R stays calm with just 18.1 BHP and 17.1 Nm of torque. It is not made with an intention to win in terms of speed as Hero claims 39.9 kmpl of mileage. This means people looking for a high-performance centric product will never visit Hero dealership for Xtreme 200R. Pulsar NS200 is the right product for that purpose. Apache RTR 200 was praised for its all road ride quality and thus, Xtreme will basically challenge it here only. All three of them are equipped with wide tyres for better road grip.

*The ABS Model of Bajaj Pulsar NS200 comes with a 300mm Front Disc Brake.

ABS for added safety is available in all of them. Hero Xtreme 200R has been made basically to attract the buyers who were looking into the premium 150cc segment. When compared to them, it carries enough power to excite senses and not just that, 50 additional cubic centimetres are not bad at all.

Top speed of 112 kmph is not that surprising as the 200cc Xtreme has been made to serve the economy conscious riders of India. Those who need for more power and top speed can consider buying the Apache RTR 200 or the Pulsar NS200, as both these bikes are quite fast in comparison at 128 kmph and 136 kmph respectively.

Hero Xtreme 200R vs TVS Apache RTR 200 (Quick Comparison): Xtreme 200R, the recently introduced flagship street fighter from Hero MotoCorp, is a value for money gem in itself. Who would have imagined that 2019 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 TVS Apache RTR 200 and Bajaj 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.

Hero Xtreme 200R

Apache RTR 200 is powered by a 197.75cc oil-cooled engine. The output of 20.5 HP is still high in comparison to just 18.4 HP from the 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 around INR 7500. Apache RTR 200 is definitely a better-looking street-specific approach in motorcycling in comparison to the Xtreme 200R with regular looks. Here is a quick spec comparison between the Hero Xtreme 200R and the TVS Apache RTR 200 4V.

Both are oil cooled and carry single front as well as a rear disc brake. Pulsar 220F was designed 10 years back but still feels in competition with other semi-faired products.

TVS Apache RTR 200 Race Edition

Apache RTR 200 comes with typical street bike design with sharp fuel tank cowls and considerably effective windscreen. Pulsar 220F, on the other hand, is aerodynamically better with bigger windscreen and side fairing. Technically, Pulsar 220F uses a 220cc engine producing 20.64 Bhp at 8500 rpm and 18.55 Nm at 7000 rpm. Apache RTR 200 uses a 197.75cc engine producing 20.23 Bhp at 8500 rpm and 18.1 Nm at 7000 rpm. Values are quite close to each other and thus, performance during acceleration test will remain similar. Apache RTR 200 is lighter but Pulsar 220F has a semi-faired design.

In terms of equipment, Pulsar 220F has aged a lot in comparison to Apache. The latter comes with slipper clutch, fully-digital instrument console, split cradle frame, KYB suspension, and petal disc brakes. Apache even comes with an optional 2-channel ABS and fuel injection equipped variant for a bigger price tag while Pulsar 220F comes in a single variant. The console on 220F is aged while the overall design and high-performance engine are only two points that justify its presence. TVS Apache RTR 200 4V is a better option when considering a motorcycle under INR 1.20 lakh (On-Road). But in case you are interested in buying a Bajaj motorcycle in this price range, then getting a Pulsar NS200 would be a better deal in comparison to the 220F.

KTM 125 Duke vs TVS Apache RTR 200 (Quick Comparison): In terms of price, the TVS Apache RTR 200 is another segment rival for newly launched KTM 125 Duke. As both bikes have a huge displacement difference, the choice-making process becomes easier for different types of riders.

Apache RTR 200 is priced at INR 1,10,805 for the ABS variant while latter commands a price tag of INR 1,18,000 (ex-showroom Delhi). The basic consideration is the use of USD front forks on the Duke and powerful 200cc motor on the Apache RTR 200. Apart from this, both bikes use fully-digital console, dual disc brakes and typical streetfighter design language. Also, the KTM 125 Duke benefits for the wide front and rear tyres.

The 125cc engine on the most affordable Duke is good for 14.5 PS of power and 12 Nm of torque. In comparison, the carburetor-fed engine on Apache 200 is good for 20.5 PS and 18.1 Nm. The former comes with a 6-speed gearbox while latter is available with a 5-speed gearbox.

TVS Apache is available with 130-section rear tyre while Duke 125 features 150-section rubber for the premium feel. The headlight stays halogen on both the models, getting LED option on bigger Apache RR 310 and KTM 390 Duke.

TVS Apache RTR 200 is one of the most exciting bikes that one could buy in 2018. It is powered by a 197.75 cc, single cylinder motor producing 20.23 BHP for the carburetor fed system. The fuel injected version develops 20.73 BHP. The torque value remains same at 18.1 Nm.

This engine comes mated to a 5-speed gearbox and the bike weighs 149 kg. Apache RTR 4V offers a ground clearance of 180mm while the seat height is 800 mm. It completes a 0-100 kmph sprint in 12 seconds while 0-2 seconds can let the odometer read 38 kmph of speed. The 0-60 kmph comes in just 3.9 seconds.

Apache RTR 200 Pros & Cons

Pros of Apache RTR 200

1. It offers a value for money package as a 200cc motorcycle at a starting price of INR 97,005 (ex-showroom Delhi) and can easily be availed instead of 150cc options like Fazer and Gixxer SF. It even undercuts the 200cc rivals by a big margin in terms of price.

2. Apache 200 comes with an advanced white back-lit, fully digital instrument console. The fully loaded LCD screen offers clear visibility and displays all of the required information.

3. The bike comes with loads of options like fuel injection, ABS and Pirelli tyres (for INR 5,000). The customers can choose their Apache by counting priorities as ABS comes at INR 1,09,705 while Fi commands INR 1,10,805 worth price tag.

4. The aggressive front headlight uses an impressive pair of DRLs. This makes the bike more attractive as well as safe in rough weather. It even comes with a small wind deflector.

5. Stainless steel double barrel exhaust on the new Apache comes with a catalytic converter for matching the strict emission norms in India.

6. Even after being a naked street bike, the on-track performance of Apache is remarkable. It has a nice frame which allows it to be tight on corners and fully planted on the straight track.

7. The most recent inclusion of slipper clutch has further raised its track-worthy performance. Also, this offers Apache riders lighter clutch when riding in heavy traffic.

Cons of TVS Apache RTR 200

1. Gloss shades are not offered for every matt shade available on Apache 200.

2. The 5-speed gearbox could have been upgraded to a more advanced 6-speed unit.

3. The engine is still air+oil cooled like the Pulsar 220F. It would have been better if TVS offered a proper liquid-cooled engine like Pulsar NS200.

4. RTR 200 feels under-powered in comparison to its direct rival NS200.

A drag race between TVS Apache RTR 200 4V and Hero Xtreme 200R has cleared how well both the motorcycles have been made by the respective brands. The comparison also clears the position of the newly launched Xtreme in front of its biggest rival. The drag race starts with Xtreme 200R giving tough competition to the Apache till 60 kph. Suddenly, the power surge from Apache’s engine is witnessed with a clean gap between both the riders.

As Hero has itself claimed a great 0-60 kph time for their motorcycle, it seems like doing 100 kph is also not that bad. The motorcycle struggles to gain speed once the 100 kph mark is crossed while the Apache can be seen cutting the wind and getting an even wider gap in the triple-digit speed range. Apache 200 is seen touching 124 kph in this sprint, with the same rider on the saddle that was earlier on the Xtreme. Both the bikes are offered with a 5-speed gearbox.
