    In the ownership thread 'RTR 160/Fi' I have shared in detail my bad experience with old Delphi Fuel injector which failed twice. The second time, I couldn't get replacement ECU and had to convert my bike to Carburettor at 50000kms.

    That's the reason I opted for Carburettor RTR200 for reliability. But TVS Technicians assure me that unlike the old Delphi Fuel injector in old160 Fi, the RTR200 Fi is a Bosch closed loop FI which is very reliable.

    What is your experience with your fuel injected RTR200? How many kilometres have you ridden so far and what were the issues you faced in fuel injection?
    Kindly help.
    HI Arwin

    Sorry for the late reply. I have used both the bikes you mentioned. I used Apache 160 FI for almost 9 years, 80K+ Kms. And it is still being used by the guy I sold it off to. He spent about 12K in repairs and was very happy with it when I last met him. I never faced any problem with the Fuel Injector. I am currently using white RTR200 FI and will complete 2 years in June '20 and already clocked 20K Kms. It is a pretty good bike and I think you should opt for the FI one. I see many posts regarding the carb tuning and setting going wrong/improper. The Bike is quite smooth and gives a consistent average of 35-38KMPL. One thing I recommend is buying a chain lube and using it atleast once in 2 weeks. This should keep the bike running smooth. Also, I feel it helps if you use Speed/Power petrol. I was using only Speed most of the time and could feel the difference in the running of 160. Although I don't feel any difference with RTR200, but I still use Speed.

    Let me know if you have any specific queries.

    Hey guys, posting after a long time. Had a query. My bike has run around 27k kms and the headlamp conked off today. Can you guys suggest a good bulb mainly for city usage. I'm a bit tight on budget.
    Thanks in advance.

    Stock bulb cost you 150 bucks or so.

    Hi all,

    Just wanted to confirm one thing.

    I test rode the BS6 RTR 200 today and everything was tooo perfect except for the seating.

    I am 6'1 and not sure why, but felt like I was sitting a bit high on top of the bike and didn't feel grounded kind of.

    My legs were like perfect fit between the tank shrouds and the pegs, so not much leeway for movement.

    My query is that, other tall riders in the forum, can you share your experience during touring?. Does it get tiring or does the position feel awkward only initially and you eventually get used to it?

    Thanks in Advance!.

    PS: Test rode the Gixxer 155 and KTM Duke 250 after that, and both felt much better seating wise. So maybe for my body type and the way I ride, I need a bigger bike maybe.

    Maybe a tweet to TVS might fetch an appropriate answer to your question, they're quite responsive to user complaints & queries there.
    It might be possible to swap the speed-o-meter and get all the benefit of the XConnect, as everything is done via Bluetooth.

    i.e. lean angle via phone gyro-sensor , crash can be detected with sudden stoppage/deceleration and so on...(attachment)

    Twice in one year, my battery has died on me out of the blue in the morning. I ride my bike everyday on weekdays. At any rate, it does not go beyond two days without being ridden. The first time this happened, I got the alternator and the battery checked. Both were fine. Charged the battery and it worked fine. Anyone else faced the same issue?

    I think fault is in your battery. If alternator have issue or misbehaving then you must have faced this frequently.
