    Buying experience was good my rtr 200 was of the first batch when it was launched in my area i was the first person to own the bike & at that time i use to get very good attention due to looks of bike the bike has good road presence even now , talking about my riding experience it has amazing throttle response , mileage when bike was new was between b30-35 now i think it's below 25, i had to spend a little due to some change in parts but now i think i am having issue that my oil is getting reduced very fast,. Pros : good looks , good throttle response , good handling, good riding posture. Cons: less mileage, seats uncomfortable for long distance like above 80-100kms.

    . The buying experience was pretty fine. The sales guy was behind me and my dad calling up everyday to keep updating us on the discount we'd get on the bike because we were planning to buy pulsar ns or the duke or but my dad wasn't allowing me to get my hands on ns or the duke and he liked hornet so i thought of the apache as my friend owned one and it was totally unplanned. But the tvs sales people are very lazy and don't care about the customers after the sales.2. I bought this bike during the monsoon and then it was first bike..Had been waiting for two years for my bike so i couldn't wait any longer. It is tvs so i was worried about the quality of this bike but it was better than i expected. 3. The bike looks really good and it turns quite a few heads because of its bassy exhaust and when you rev it hard it really sounds nice and different. The performance is good for citing riding and does the job well as it gives you the sporty feel. The only thing it lacks is in the 6th gear cause when you do high speeds you really miss the 6th gear.4. The first two services were cheap but the third one emptied my pocket because my rear disc brake had rusted so the charged me 2k for it which is fine but the real trouble started after they couldn't fix the problem.I still face the problem after three months of servicing after which i have decided now not to go to the service centre as those guys are least interested and just find ways of looting you.5. The bike is a really good package value for money bike and tvs has offered this bike with many features for such less price. The only issue is the service centre guys and they need to add a 6th gear on this bike and power it a bit more.

    The new tvs apache rtr 200 4v looks distinguished but not dramatically different from the previous generation models. The bike maker has chosen to stay close to the draken x-21 concept showcased at the 2014 auto expo, which is a good thing and this has helped push the aggressive quotient to a maximum lending a true street-fighter styling. The trademark bikini fairing has been given a miss on the rtr 200 and is now replaced by a leaner and meaner single headlamp cluster that is equipped with daytime running leds.

    The single piece fuel tank looks sharp and accommodates the extended fenders with ease, whereas the differently positioned fuel tank lid looks rather good. Adding a sporty touch is the black stripe in the middle of the fuel tank that also manages to break the mono colour scheme on the bike. You get split seats that are comfortable and accommodating for both the rider and pillion, whereas the rear gets an led tail lamp and clear lens turn indicators. What also work for us are the w-shaped grab handle and the wavy alloy wheels that complete the aesthetic elements on the flagship apache.

    The apache rtr 200 4v holds many firsts for tvs and one of them is its all-digital instrument console. We were impressed when the ktm duke 200 first came with a heavily loaded console setting the benchmark in the segment and tvs has a done a splendid job matching up to it. You get a speedometer, odometer, two trip meters, gear indicator gear shift light and service reminder. But here's the fun part, the console also comes with a lap timer, high speed recorder, shortest distance recorder and a humble message that says 'race on' every time you turn the ignition on.

    While the styling is one aspect of grabbing attention, tvs has managed to tune the exhaust rather well on the apache rtr 200 4v. Dubbed as the 'double barrel' exhaust, the rtr 200 gets a stronger bass exhaust note, which makes it an attention seeking motorcycle, should you choose to rev past the onlookers. Our test bike was finished in matte white and the calm colour certainly looks brilliant and matches the superior fit and finish that tvs has to offer. That said, the other shades inclusive of matte yellow, grey and red are something to watch out for.

    Power delivery feels smooth throughout the rev range and there is ample grunt even at lower rpms to get you going. The throttle response is crisp thanks to the efi unit and the counter balancer shaft has helped keep engine vibrations to a minimum. In fact, vibes are negligible even on top of the power band and the motor is extremely refined in every sense. The engine feels the happiest in the mid-range at just above 6000rpm and power is always available at the twist of your wrist. While riding in the city will hardly be an issue on the apache rtr 200, the top-end is lacking and that's when an extra 2-3bhp would've helped.

    Tvs claims a top speed of 129 kmph on the apache with 0-110 kmph coming up easily. The remainder though needs the rider to crouch a bit to get the numbers going. The bike maker has also restrained itself to a 5-speed gearbox, while the competition has moved to a 6-speed unit. Nevertheless, gear shifts are smooth and changes sans any hassle, but that extra could've helped in achieving a slightly higher top speed. In the next update maybe?

    One of the stronger points that the apache series always boasted off was a strong handling character and with the rtr 200 4v, tvs has spiced things up further. While the frame is completely new, it remains extremely responsive and quick turns are hardly ever an issue. In fact, one could compare it to a point and shoot camera, so to say. It feels that effortless at times when changing directions. That said, it isn't flawless and the trait can be blamed on the slightly softer suspension setup.

    The apache rtr 200 4v uses 37mm kayaba front forks and a pre-load adjustable monoshock suspension at the rear. The setup works well in terms of everyday performance and is intended to offer a balance between good ride quality and handling. Tvs scores brownie points in this regard and has certainly done a good job. Hence, it is only when you turn the throttle a bit too hard, the softer setup becomes apparent. Nevertheless, it isn't something that spoils the riding experience and clearly does not affect the dynamics of the motorcycle in everyday riding conditions. What stays true to the apache name is the effortless performance that the bike has managed to offer for over a decade now.

    Perfect commuter bike, with racing dna power. Exhaust note is really amazing and appreciate the engine refinement. Power that it has is enough for city commutes and even highway rides. Slipper clutch gives an added advantage with its smooth shifts of gear and its hassle free. Its first of its kind in a 200 cc bike segment next to ktm's.

    1. I got the bike on the booking day itself it was Friday a good day to buy

    2.Riding experience is very good the engine gives a pretty good feedback and less vibration compared to 160 and 180

    3.Looks are absolutely good it has a muscular body i just love the tank and the head lights drls

    4.I had a bad experience during service because after every service problems in bike used to increase i don't know what they did the instrument cluster used to show false rpm and then the gear sensor and speedometer that was the main issue it doesn’t used to work suddenly and doesn’t show any readings

    5. Performance of the bike is pretty good the looks of the bike is absolutely fantastic but it lacks 6th gear where it’s other competitors has it and even a led head light the bike would we good it was liquid cooled engine that’s the down sides of the bike but the good part is it has pirelli tyres and abs as option and also the fi variant

    Over all it is a good bike which tvs has provided

    The perfect bike with perfect price point. I bought abs model in nov 18 and never regretted. I start with buying experience. Most of like me, already knew this bike before buying one. So, you are literally knowing what are you buying. The only question remain, which showroom. Literally i feel all showroom have same experience and no special deal found with them. So, i suggest to choose the one, which will provide best after sales service.I recently completed 10k and riding experience was as expected. The bike was smooth initially, with bare vibration. But gradually increases with usage. So i go for after market oil brands and tweaking the oil grade and definitely feel the change.The looks are decent enough and some i am still impressed. The tvs hard-work reflects not only in look, but each and every corner. Really appreciate tvs. You can see only 4 star with this review, as service and after sales are lagging. The upper management are really putting their efforts to make it top notch, but no reflection on grounds. It can be much much better. I really felt bad when hold my bike due lack of parts availability. When i initiated complaints with upper management, they expedite the process, but actual/service center people will treat you as bad person. Seriously, there was lack of work motivation.If you are really a nerd and like the bike technology it offers, go for it.Now upgraded bs6 model, really is steal deal at its price point.It is never about buy bike, it all about after sales.Perfect service is only, to keep this bike top notch. The oil change, chain cleaning, etc are DIY stuff. Just make sure you have perfect mechanic.
