Q. Which one is best in mileage ns 200 or apache 200 4v ???
  • If you want go for 200cc bike you should not look to mileage because if you take bike by looking mileage you will take apache200 4v but after that you will not get proper service even Apache 200 4v indicator bulb is not available on service centre from this you should think about the service of TVS
  • Depends if you tall above 6ft apache whether it might be good is a no go your knees will be crammed while below 5ft8in ns is no go you'll have to struggle as you have to balance on one leg otherwise apache is a soft rider while ns a bit harsh and while comfort is with apache performance is with ns. looks are personal perspective I like apache's looks but drive ns200 apache is better for city and touring can be done too ns is perfect for touring city rides are a bit harsh as it heats up more and isn't as agile as apache
  • I think apache 200 is easier to ride in the city whereas pulsar 200 is more powerful but the power is not usable in the city traffic as it takes time to build up. So, if you ride in moderate to heavy traffic conditions, rtr 200 is better, it also offers better handling and brakes.if you ride in light traffic conditions then pulsar is the better choice, although it does not handle all that well.

User Reviews of Comparison

  • Bajaj Pulsar NS200
  • Yamaha MT 15
  • Good bike in terms of performance(in terms of 200 segments) and mileage(if you drive like a human for first couple of months). To keep the bike in good condition you need to maintain it and drive it like a cool minded guy or girl, keeping all that in mind then bike will allow you keep riding it like a hooligan.The sound is awesome at high revs.Breaks are smooth not so sharp, so super beginner friendly.Styles and looks always 5 star.Get a crash guard and a break guard it surely have a plus point.

  • Ns200 bs6 is the most powerfull bike i have ever ridden in this sagement.It's fi engine claims a great ammount of punch in low end.Also it's 24.5 bhp helps to hit almost 145+kms in top end.The suspensions are slightly in stiffer side but there is no compromise with riding comfort in this bike.It's seating posture helps you to roll 2 to 3 hours nonstop.Ns200 is also a good coice for long ride.Specially for hill ride.

  • If I want to race/ride/cruise in any situation it's a perfect comfortable & fully energetic machine, I've used ever. It giving around 35-38 in the city, +40 in highways, and a long ride. One word in the 200cc category - 'beast'.

  • I am riding this bike for 2 months and the bike is just rocks. The bike is very powerful according to its segment, sometimes I feel that I am riding a 200cc bike or more. Some pros as per my views-1. Initial pickup is excellent.2. Midrange is mindblowing. Sometimes after midrange pull, you can feel, extra pickup..that might be because of VVA.3. At high-end it is smooth..Though I didn't test it beyond 100kmph. But at the high end, you don't feel any vibration.4. Sporty design. Look and feel is class in its segment.5. Clutch is very light. As MT15 has an A&S clutch, no rear wheel locking at high gear & low-speed combination, and aggressive downshifting.6. Front braking is awesome, the rear one is ok ok.7. mileage is good.8. Side stand engine cut-off feature enabled.Some cons as per my views--1. Front mudguard should be a little extended. The current one causes problems during the rainy season.2. The pillion seat should have a properly designed grab handles(The current one looks good but is not too useful). Also, the seat could be a little extended(Though most of the time I ride this bike with a pillion and we don't face any such problem. For two healthy persons, the seat length is not suitable for long rides).3. Yamaha should use some kind of radiator guards like KTM Or Dominar.Overall MT15 BS6 is a perfect choice.

  • Performance is good, The bike riding posture is straight and it will not harm your shoulders & back after long rides. The power of the bike is quite realistic and immeasurable, Mt gives an immense amount of power to be needed for daily use for city rides as well as on highways. The average is quite good, After your 3rd servicing, It will give an average of about 35 km/h. And, Lastly about it's looks- I had purchased mt15 ice fluo vermillion, I.E orange alloys with a white finish on the tank and trust me that look just awesome and this color variant of mt15 is eye-catching & once you take this on-road, Many people will stare your bike more than you. The headlamps are good, But when you will be riding this bike at night on highways, you will definitely feel the light's are not worth it. Anyway, Here's my small review about my mt15 ice fluo vermillion bs6 single-channel abs and one more thing, Mt seat is too small to fit for 3 riders, So tripling can be dangerous although, Rider and pillion seat is quite comfortable to thank you Yamaha for making us feel proud a proud mt owner.

  • It's good vehicle ,and fuel tank is a 10 L capacity for use in regular petrol octane level is 90,fuel reserve amount:2.2 L(0.58 us gal,0.48 imp.gal) you start the main switch for display Let's change it to the screen hi buddy,Welcome screen control mode The welcome screen greets you when the main switch is tumed on 'Hi Bud- dy', and when the main switch is turned off 'see you'. The user name 'Buddy' is set as the factory default, but it can be set to your name. To set the user name 1. Turn the main switch off. 2. Push and hold the 'RESET but-3. Turn the main switch on, and then release the 'RESET' button after four seconds. 4. When the first character starts flashing, push the 'SELECT' but- ton to change the character in the following order.

  • Everything Is Good In Terms Of Performance, Riding Dynamics,Features N Mileage. 1st Negative Point Yamaha Should Offer Dual Channel ABS because The Range Of This Motorcycle Is 1.40 Lakhs N Secondly The Most Important Feedback Is The Length Of Pillion Seat√ With Grab Rails N To Be Honest It's Really Pathetic. If This Issue Is Not Fixed Yamaha Will Definitely Disappoint All The MT15 Lovers N Will Regret It With The Company Sales For Sure.

  • Yamaha mt 15 is a complete package.The bike has everything that i wanted with a bike for a long and comfortable journey.The seats are very comfortable for both driver and pillion for a long drive.The bike is very slim and helps to drive at high speed and in traffic at ease.It has led drls, Headlight, And tail light which looks very good at night.I wished it had dual-channel abs but a single channel also works just fine.
