What is a good city bike for larger riders?

    Both the Bajaj Pulsar N250 and Hero Xpulse 200T 4V are good options.

    Is the Apache RTR 200 4V a good purchase decision? The things I am looking for are good power, comfort (I am 6ft tall and on the heavier side) and decent fuel efficiency as most of my rides would be within the city. Also what is the maintenance cost? And is the TVS engine long-lasting, because I plan to keep this bike for at least 4 to 5 years?

    Autocar India says: The TVS Apache RTR 200 4V is a good bike for multiple reasons and it has won many of our previous comparison reviews. However, it has one drawback that could be a deal breaker for you – the distance between the seat and the foot pegs is quite tight.

    For short riders, this isn’t so much of a problem, but someone tall and large like yourself might find this a bit too uncomfortable to put up with. Given the points you have mentioned, we would recommend that you try out either the Bajaj Pulsar N250 or the Yamaha FZ25 as they will meet your needs well. On the more affordable end of the scale, the Xpulse 200T 4V is a good option considering it has a well-judged suspension and is one of the more roomier street bikes in this price range.
