    RTR 200 4v is an awesome bike except feeble rear brakes, sudden stalling of engine (bs6 issue as mentioned by the serv centre) & disgusting after sale support/ service centre experience (atleast in and around Kolkata). I own this bike.

    TVS Apache making a Difference since it's 160Hyperedge till 310rr. Owning a 160Hyperedge FR from the year 2018, never turned me down. A lot of motorbikes came but the Throttle response 😮 of RTR is Outstanding. #proud owner of TVS Apache RTR 160 HyperEdge.

    I own a Bajaj RS200, and when I'm on the road I hardly care about Bluetooth or drive modes. When I ride it, I feel one with the bike and it makes me feel like a superbike racer. It's got a proper sports bike frame, looks like a very expensive superbike and has proper racing bike design that makes jaws drop. I wanted a bike that doesn't have commuter bike genes at all, and the RS200 has exceeded my expectations. I'm also over 6-feet tall with heavy size, and it's jus amazing.

    Attention ⚠️ I'm also fan of Apache 2004v before I buy it . I bought Apache 200 4v bs6 8 months ago . it's good but only on paper . for practical go for hornet or ns ( not fuel iffecient ) because TVS after sales service is very bad and wrost . I made mistake but hope you not ... Apache is good only on paper .

    Exactly, hornet 2.0 doesn't deserve to be in this comparison, just giving upside down forks and increasing 20cc and raising the price to a proper 200cc bike, ullu samjha hai kya Honda ne hume. TVS has done so much for that same price, this is a no brainer, but that rider triangle in RTRs, I don't like it.
