Hero Xtreme 200R Vs Pulsar NS200 Vs Apache RTR 200 4V Verdict

Now, its time for us to decide which one is the best of this lot. First, we start with the Xtreme 200R. The latest bike on the line is also the cheapest one. It undercuts its rivals by nearly Rs 20,000 flat. However, it lags on various terms, making it not as track-ready like the NS200 and RTR 200. The Pulsar gives the best performance and is the fastest amongst all. Also, it is Bajaj. So, the bike would be much fuel efficient. Lastly, Apache gets the most features for the bike and for racing as well. The A-RT slipper clutch, Remora racing tires, and the racing double-barrel exhaust put the RTR out of the box. However, the figures tell that it is a bit slower than the Pulsar NS200. But another advantage is that it gives Fuel Injected engines and also Ethanol as an option.

To sum it up all, Xtreme 200R is for people having a budget under Rs 1 Lakh. NS200 is for all the Bajaj lovers and this bike is one of the strongest competitors amongst these three. However, NS200 would be a great and economical buy, thanks to its grunty yet frugal engine. Now, Apache is for those who are obsessed with features and want Fuel injected system and other racing elements.
