Hero is yet to launch the bike in other states of India. The bike is an all-new model with typically restrained styling. It is not as butch or aggressive as some of the other bikes in this list. The bike features a part analogue part digital console and also gets a single-channel ABS as a standard feature. The 200 cc engine on the Xtreme 200R is a bored out version of the Achiever's 150 cc engine.

Launched in 2016, the TVS Apache RTR 200 4V is one of the best-selling 200 cc bikes in India. Aggressive styling, good performance and a good thing is that the bike has a lot of variants. It can be specified with either a carburetted or a fuel injected engine, ABS or non-ABS and even the tyres. One can buy the Apache RTR 200 4V with regular TVS tyres on opt for stickier Pirelli tyres. The Apache RTR 200 4V gets a 197 cc engine which makes 20.7 bhp and 18.1 Nm of peak torque. The bike is mated to a 5-speed transmission although we would have loved to see a 6-speed gearbox on the same. The Apache RTR 200 4V is loaded with features such as a comprehensive fully digital instrument console, ABS, LED daytime running lamp, step-seat and much more. The bike offers excellent performance and with prices starting from Rs. 1.02 lakh and going up till Rs. 1.16 lakh (all prices ex-showroom, Delhi).
Launched in early 2017, the Yamaha FZ25 might not have set the sales chart on fire but is a seriously good offering in the 200 cc - 250 cc segment. It is refined, has great design, has got features such as LED headlamp, fully digital instrument console, step-seat but misses out on ABS, even as an option. The FZ25 gets a 249 cc engine which makes 20 bhp and 20 Nm with the engine being paired with a 6-speed gearbox. Yamaha claims that the FZ25 will be able to go on for 40 kilometres on a litre of petrol. The bike is one of the best-looking in this segment and with a price of Rs. 1.19 lakh (Ex-showroom, Delhi).
KTM 200 Duke

Perhaps the hottest 200 cc offering in India, the KTM 200 Duke is one of the best 200 cc bikes that you can buy in India right now. Priced at Rs. 1.46 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi) the 200 Duke is surely expensive, but with that price, you get a stonker of a 200 cc single-cylinder engine which makes 25 bhp along with 19.2 Nm of peak torque. The engine is mated to a 6-speed gearbox and it has a claimed fuel efficiency of 35 kmpl. It continues to have a blistering performance.
