    Default Help, Choosing between Fz25 and RtR200

    Hello all,

    My friend looking for a bike in the market. His main usage is daily office commute(75%) and occasional touring(25%). We both discussed, shortlisted fz25 and RtR200 by mileage, refineness and comfort.
    Help us to find the best of these two.

    Thank you.

    Query Approved

    I do not know about fuel efficiency, but the Yammie is anyday better in terms of refinement and comfort.

    Rtr200 and FZ25 is like rtr160 and rtr180 respectively in terms performance and price difference.
    Both are air cooled, with oil cooler and 5 gears .
    Both bikes are made to perform better on city with good low and midrange compared to NS&200 Duke.




    Note: rtr200 will be available with ABS soon.


    Cheers.

    Yammie much better any day in comparison to tvs apache... since most of the ride is in the city fz25 wins by a great margin here due to its nimble nature & easy maneouverability in traffic & loads of low end torque...

    hi imam, going by your friend's requirements one by one.I think your friend needs a powerful commuter,which is easy on pocket (maintenance & fuel efficiency)
    1) mileage means fulltank range, but i hope you meant fuel efficiency.Yamaha fz 250 is inversely proprtional to fuel efficiency, apache wins here.
    2) Refinement - I test rode apache rtr 200 carb variant. Trust it is not like any other tvs bikes. Its refinement and acceleration, both are awesome.
    Reviews also reveals the refinement levels are maintained at all rpm.
    3) Comfort - Only test ride can say.

    Many of us have a liking/high opinion for a particular brand.But times are changing. All manufacturers are surprising us in terms of refinement and performance with their product.So don't jump on to conclusions considering the brand name. Ask your friend to test ride both the bike.Most importantly ask your friend to enquire about service intervals, spares cost which could give him an idea about ownership cost.
    If possible ask him to consider Pulsar NS 200 also
