Both the Bajaj Pulsar NS200 and the TVS Apache RTR 200 4V intend to catch young people’s attention, but the design is a personal affair. The TVS Apache RTR 200 4V is the bike with the newest design in this area, and it appears crisp and contemporary.
The Apache gets powered by a 197cc oil-cooled engine and can provide a mileage of approximately 35-38kmpl. Pulsar NS200 entails a 199.5cc engine and provides a mileage of roughly 35kmpl.
With the new headlamp assembly, DRLs, body graphics, and colour choices, the TVS Apache RTR 4V looks sharper and more modern. On the other hand, the Bajaj Pulsar NS200 continues to employ the same fundamental design introduced back in 2012. But, Bajaj has somehow managed to make it just as modern as other bikes in its category.
Additionally, the surrounding frame gives the Pulsar a contemporary and chic appearance.
Yamaha has introduced its unadorned streetfighter for Rs 1.36 lakhs, about Rs 3000 less expensive than the R15 V3. In contrast, Apache is Rs 25,000 less expensive.
A 155cc liquid-cooled DOHC engine with the VVA system and fuel injection is provided for the MT-15. The motor gets calibrated to produce 19.1 BHP and 14.8 Nm of maximum torque when paired with a 6-speed transmission.
The 197cc oil-cooled SOHC engine powering Apache generates 21 bhp and 18.5 Nm maximum torque. The engine gets connected to an AR-T slipper clutch 5-speed gearbox.
The gasoline tank for the MT-15 has a 10-litre capacity. With the same engine as the R15 V3, it should produce approximately 50 km per gallon, providing a riding range of more than 450 km. The reported max speed is 131 kilometres per hour.
Although Apache has a larger 12-litre fuel tank, its reported mileage is approx 35 km/l. We could go roughly 420 kilometres on a full tank throughout our study. The highest speed that can be reached on this bike is approx 129 km/hr.
The Hornet 2.0 uses a digital instrument panel with all the required readouts, including a speedometer, tachometer, fuel economy display, trip metre, odometer, and fuel gauge. Additionally, this bike has a battery voltmeter, warning switch, and engine start switch.
A digital instrument panel with the Apache RTR 200 4V provides essential data like speed, tachometer, odometer, trip metre, etc.
The 184cc air-cooled engine of the Honda Hornet 2.0 produces 17 horsepower and 16 Nm of maximum torque. This engine employs a PGM-Fi (fuel injection) system with eight sensing devices and is mated to a five-speed transmission.
On the other hand, the 197.75cc oil-cooled engine of the TVS Apache RTR 200 4V produces 20 horsepower and 17 Nm. The bike gets connected to a five-speed gearbox that comes standard with a slipper clutch.
The Honda Hornet 2.0 has inverted handlebars with mono shocks, and its 276 mm front and 220 mm rear petal brake discs with single-channel ABS give it a little advantage over the TVS Apache RTR 200 4V in this particular area.
