Pulsar 200 SS Vs Apache RTR 250 - Comparative Fight

After the two wheeler bike comparison between Pulsar 200 SS and Apache RTR 180 ABS, we will now compare Pulsar 200 SS and Apache RTR 250. Both these bikes are expected to launch officially in the year 2015. Both Pulsar 200 SS and Apache 250 have come with new additions as you can see in the image above! As the displacement(cc) of Apache is more than Pulsar, Apache wins the battle when it comes to engine power and speed(will be tested soon).

Unlike its siblings Apache 150, 160 and 180, the new model 250 has got full fairing. When it comes to Pulsar, even its siblings didn't had full fairing compared to 200 SS. Both the bikes are being manufactured by its own aggressive look such as the new LED pivot lamps, LED headlamps, cowl tail and fairing. The cowl tail of Apache resembles with Yamaha that definitely will give an attractive look.
