0 318

THE 200-250cc class of motorcycles—with engine capacities closer to a quarter of a litre—in India is choc-a-bloc with products across the entire spectrum of rider feel. Here are our top three picks:

KTM 200 Duke
Sold by Bajaj in India, this naked Austrian sport bike is powered by a proven 200cc engine that produces a maximum power of 25bhp and torque of 19Nm. Its performance can be gauged by the claimed top speed of 138 kmph and a 0-100 kmph time of 9.3 seconds. A new model is expected in the market soon. Rs 1.46 lakh (ex-showroom Chennai).

Bajaj Pulsar RS200
This sportier Pulsar runs the liquid-cooled 200cc engine tuned to make 24.16 bhp and has its torque peak at 18.6 Nm. What sets it apart from the other Pulsars is the striking design and livery – which comes in a choice of yellow and black, and a red and black. It might be too chunky for some, but it has its takers on the roads. Note that its top speed is 140.8 kmph. Rs 1.22 lakh (ex-showroom Chennai). Details: bajajauto.com/pulsarrs200

TVS Apache RTR 200 4V
For all its drawbacks, the Apache undercuts its competition at the price it’s offered at. Under its sporty skin is a 200cc liquid-cooled engine that churns out
20 bhp and 18.1 Nm of torque – good for a top whack of 127 kmph. It can be optioned with ABS and those sweet Pirelli tyres, for better performance on the racetrack. Rs 92,925 (ex-showroom Chennai) Details: tvsapache.com
