TVS Apache RTR 200 4V vs Ronin 225: Design

The design of both motorcycles is radically different. The Apache RTR 200 4V is a streetfighter. The motorcycle was updated last year. It got an even more aggressive-looking headlamp and a new tail lamp design. The muscular fuel tank and sharp tank shrouds add to the road presence of the motorcycle.

On the other hand, Ronin's design is a mixed bag. It has some characteristics of a cruiser, scrambler and neo-retro motorcycle. There is a circular headlamp in the front, a cruiser-like riding stance with a muscular fuel tank and a scrambler-like rear section with a slim tail lamp and block-pattern tyres.
