    I heard it has poor low and mid range torque compared to gixxer which make it not so comfortable in city ride. And milage... Showroom persons claim max 35 kmpl it is. Don't know if these are true.

    The 160 4v does have a good low and mid range torque. Reaching city riding speeds (50-60 kmph) is faster than any 150-160 cc bike; comparable to the 180cc bikes. Take a test ride and see for yourself. It is refined than any other bike in the segment and can hold 90-100 kmph effortlessly, which is usually considered the 200 cc territory.

    I have an RTR 200 and get a mileage of 40±2 kmpl with sane riding. With some ripping in city and 2 highway speedruns, I managed to get 35 kmpl. The 160 4v must give you at least +5 kmpl compared to the 200 4v in similar conditions.

    You can also try the NS160. It is the 2nd most powerful in the segment. It had excellent reviews at the time of its release especially for its performance and handling.

    Its only negatives at the time of release were the skinny tyres, small front disc and the lack of rear disc brake. Now, with the recent update, all these issues have been sorted out

    Also, if OP test rides his choices and still likes the Xtreme 200R, he should buy it.

    Some forum members have it, OP can get in touch with them for feedback. There's this fellow xBhpian who was asking for off-road tires for his Xtreme 200R who is taking it to Himalayas for touring. One can find his post in tyre section.

    Less sexy than a full fairing that looks like a Moto GP replica. Engine is the same, I wish they had a SF version with 250cc engine, that'd justify the looks.

    You can also try Pulsar NS160, Pulsar 180, Unicorn 160 - always test ride bikes before closing in on something. Sometimes things make sense on paper but suck in real life.
