Pros and Cons

  • Pros
  • Cons

    KTM 125 Duke

    • No compromise on the component front
    • Most refined KTM engine
    • Best KTM motorcycle for a learner

    TVS Apache RTR 200 4V

    • Segment-first adjustable front suspension offers an added layer of sophistication and works flawlessly.
    • The engine is a lot more usable now with power throughout the rev range.
    • Brakes have been improved significantly -- one of our biggest grouses with the older RTR 200s.

    KTM 125 Duke

    • Doesn't have the same KTM performance as the other models
    • Still sports the age-old design language
    • Braking department could have been better
    • Could've have done with the dual-channel setup

    TVS Apache RTR 200 4V

    • The footpeg position is still set higher up, which can make for an uncomfortable riding posture over long distances.
    • The lack of a sixth gear is evident out on the highway.
