    I don't mind shelling extra 10k or so. But I have never driven an apache, so back to dilemma mode again.
    Eh no, its coming in about a month so relax. Most launches are taking place in APril, so sit tight.

    Apache 200 is a whole different ball game. First decide whether you want a 150cc bike or a 200cc performance bike? Can you handle a 200cc bike? Price is a different aspect.

    Handling is not a problem for me. On the other hand Mileage will be, as they say Apache 200 will give just around 30.

    If Gixxer is not launching in April, I might have no option but to go for Apache only as I'm keen on rear disc.

    That is my plan. Though not doing a TD is ok for me as I'm very much impressed with Apache 200 Reviews. On the other hand, I very much like Gixxer and atleast I would like to have a choice between Apache 200 and Gixxer Rear disc when I'm buying my bike, which will be mostly in April.

    If rear disc is your thing, then Hornet 160R has rear disc version with CBS and it has Petal discs too.

    I have driven Gixxer and it simply blew my mind. Other than Gixxer, I have no interest in other 150cc bikes especially Honda ones. Just that now I'm little bit confused between Apache 200 and Gixxer.

    Test ride the Hornet. It has more power, way better brakes esp. CBS variant, better Top end and looks bigger than the Gixxer.

    If you're considering the Apache, then also consider the Pulsar AS200.

    I find that statement very odd. If you dint have an interest in the RTR160 how did you suddenly grow an interest in the RTR200 when its not even in the showrooms yet?

    RTR 160 is a very outdated product which has issues like vibration. So I was not interested in existing RTR 160. I suddenly got an interest in Apache RTR 200 for two reasons: for its rave reviews it is getting from people, and its relatively less premium (around 10k) I have to pay than my current choice which is Gixxer.

    Though both of my current choices Gixxer naked with rear disc and Apache 200R base version are not yet in the market, Apache will be on sale in some 2 weeks whereas there is no word on the Gixxer rear disc variant. So the confusion between the two.
