    Have driven both NS and RTR of friends's, both non-ABS standard versions.
    My observations were very similar to AbhijithPReddy's.
    Plus following -
    Not all Service centers are bad, not all mechanics are bad (for both BAJAJ as well as TVS)
    RTR handles very well in sharp turns and cuts as compared to NS200 (the TVS has a shorter wheelbase i guess)
    and most significant observation - RTR200 BREAKS MUCH BETTER THAN THE NS200!

    Cheers!
    RTR Breaking much better than NS200! Isnt that a bad thing when one product breaks better?

    Coming to the requirements! RTR should be the best choice as the TS tends to use the bike in city! NS needs to be rev’d to high rpms to get the bike moving while the RTR doesnt! 6th missing on RTR is also not a problem as Bangalore city doesn’t really really require 6th gear!! Mostly, kne shifts between 1st and 2nd. If you are lucky enough, you can ride in 3rd

    Pardon my language skills here. I meant Breaking from a riding perspective, not that one product breaking into pieces.
