Q. Which one is better Pulsar NS200 or Tvs apache rtr 2004v?
  • I have always been a fan of Pulsar Ns 200, but when it comes to Engine refinement and exhaust sound there is no comaprison to Apache rtr 200 4v. Now coming to Engine power, Ns has quite powerful output in terms of bhp which 23.7 in comparison to Apache mere 20.73 bhp. Also Ns has 0.3 Nm more torque than Apache.When it comes to long crusing over highways, Pulsar beats Apache at its peak with 6 gearbox as compared to Apache's 5 gearbox which helps Pulsar to attain top speed of around 145-150kmph. Both bikes have equal milegae output ie. Somewhere between 38-45kmpl (depends on how you drive)I just bought a New pulsar Ns 2019 Abs, clocked at around 178 kms and i guarantee you that i have never been more happier in my life.Only thing i miss in Pulsar 200Ns is Exhaust but seriously that is no big issue, you can install a much powerful exhaust (Akrapovic) which comes around 4000-6000 INR, and trust its the best exhaust avilable out there, put in some K&N air filters, use Motul Synthetic oil, install Hydraulic lever and you have got the Beast on two wheels. (These are the ideas from my Pulsar 200Ns, i assure you next time you see a Apache 200 rtr 4v on a highway, you are gonna pass it over like its a piece of cake on wheels😅 lol. Goodluck with your machine.
  • In our comparison test with the TVS Apache RTR 200 4V, the NS200 came across as a well-balanced package that’s ideal for your daily city runs, occasional highway cruising and even for some fun on the twisties. The Bajaj Pulsar NS200 offers a lot more grunt, better-stopping power and well-balanced ergonomics in comparison to the TVS Apache RTR 200 4V. It also feels a lot more relaxed at high speeds. The TVS Apache RTR 200 4V is a comfortable city bike with plenty of grunt and agility for a quick race off the traffic lights and to tackle some twisties as well. But the engine feels too strained out on the highway. Also, ergonomically, with the high-set footpegs it’s a tight spot for someone taller than 5 feet 10 inches. Even the brakes fail to inspire confidence under hard braking. Luckily though, TVS does offer ABS as an option. But then, the Bajaj Pulsar NS200 also gets ABS, a single-channel unit. Apart from that, the Bajaj is also a more well rounded motorcycle that does everything just right. The ride quality too is better on the Bajaj. So, if your daily riding consists more of city commutes, the TVS Apache RTR 200 4V is the way to go. But if you are looking to ride your bike out on the highway as well, the Bajaj Pulsar NS200 is a more potent tool to opt for.
  • Pulsar NS200 falls in the price range of Rs. 1.0 to 1.11 lakh (Ex-showroom, Delhi). The naked street-fighter retains the single cylinder, liquid cooled, triple spark, 199.5cc DTS-i engine which generates 23.5PS of maximum power at 9500rpm and 18.3Nm of peak torque at 8000rpm. It comes with an option of single-channel ABS as well & has claimed mileage of 30kmpl with a top speed of 135kmph.

It is the new iteration of TVS's 200cc motercycle which is equipped with slipper clutch that reduces the clutch lever effort and its 197cc air and oil-cooled single cylinder motor comes in two variants: carburetted and fuel injected. The carburetted mill makes 20.5PS at 8500rpm while the fuel injected one makes a slightly higher 21PS at 8500rpm. In safety feature RTR 200 has optional dual channel ABS that reduces the breaking distance while improving the staibility.

Q. Which one is best in ns200 or duke 200?
  • Well this question will always remain in the minds of bike enthusiasts. Both bike have got same hearts but the file makes marginally higher power and with lesser weight it also is quicker between the two. Technology wise again Duke shines over NS. NS does outperforms Duke on the top speed battle but only on an open highway. But the best part where NS beats Duke is the city rides. Indian roads are full of people holes and the suspension setup on Duke is Rock hard designed for race track. So, there is a difficulty in choice. Even the spare parts for Duke are costly. My suggestion is NS. Why? Because, you spend less while you purchase, your after sale cost is less, you get a really good performer in this segment, of course you cannot beat file in a race, but how often are you going to race, you get softer suspension that is not harsh on your back yet gives you respectable handling. But if you can really afford some premium for better quality go for Duke.
  • If you are looking to sprint around town and maybe even hit the track at times, Duke 200 is your best friend. However, it feels a little restless at times, nothing negative here, that is just how the motorcycle is, always eager to go. It gets better equipment, suspension, fatter tyres, bigger brakes, fuel injection and everything. But that adds almost 50K. And the gearing isn’t highway friendly. The 200 NS/AS will be better for going long distances. Acceleration is lower than Duke but still very good. Being a Bajaj, there could be some rattles here and there which you will have to deal with. You lose of stuff like USD forks, FI and all. But saving 50K over the Duke for close to similar performance, you can’t complain much. Also, if you have budget constraint go with Pulsar Ns200 which is around 50k cheaper than Duke.
  • See there are various factorsNs 200 is a comfortable bike to ride and sporty as well, good on bumps, after sales serve is cheaper,Duke 200 is not so good with potholes, but very sporty to ride with being super nimble and good quality engine...Depends on you how you would want your ideal bike to be...Sporty or ComfortQuatity or Quality
