Q. Which one is best pulsar NS200 or R15 V3?
  • 1. R15 engine much refined than 200 NS2. NS best for single hand use. 3. NS much comfortable than r15 for long drive as well as regular use. 4. NS delivers more power.5. Both bikes have fiber body. 6. NS liquid cool system works so good if you wish to ride hard. There are many reasons to go with Pulsar 200 Ns but it completely depends on the purpose of the use, with me NS is the best bike in this segment for regular use as well as for long drives. No matter if it's solo ride or for two persons. Happy and safe riding 😊
  • If you want lower CC bikes with better performance then you can go for R15 V3 but it's costlier than NS200. When you take these two into drag race as obvious NS200 far much more faster than R15 V3. Both the bikes comes 6 speed gear box. But instant power of R15 V3 is good and moreover comes with faring body. NS200 can beat in top end, top speed but in some videos you'll find R15 V3 beating NS200 that's depend on riders. But NS200 is far much more better than R15 V3.
  • Ns200 is a Naked bike and r15 is a Full faring bike it is up to you which type of bike you want ,r15 is a track oriented bike and its riding posture is not so comfortable, if you ride a bike for long distance then it is not preferable and ns is a street oriented bike whith great power , look wise both bike has different., power on the both bike is good ,. in R15 it is powerful bike in 150cc segment and Ns200 is also has great power in 200 cc segment with lower price.

Q. Which one is best for long drive NS 200 or R15 V3?
  • NS 200 would be ideal for a long drive. The seating posture of the Pulsar range is more suited for roads as compared to the R15, which is more suited and built for the track. In addition it is easier to add touring kits to the NS 200 as they are widely available.
  • Both bikes have liquid cooled technology. So performance wise their is no much difference, just the riding posture varies. But still NS200 has better pickup and handling, It is pure beast.
  • Ns200...sturdiest perimeter frame makes long rides @ high speed smooth as silk....

  • Good bike in terms of performance(in terms of 200 segments) and mileage(if you drive like a human for first couple of months). To keep the bike in good condition you need to maintain it and drive it like a cool minded guy or girl, keeping all that in mind then bike will allow you keep riding it like a hooligan.The sound is awesome at high revs.Breaks are smooth not so sharp, so super beginner friendly.Styles and looks always 5 star.Get a crash guard and a break guard it surely have a plus point.

  • Ns200 bs6 is the most powerfull bike i have ever ridden in this sagement.It's fi engine claims a great ammount of punch in low end.Also it's 24.5 bhp helps to hit almost 145+kms in top end.The suspensions are slightly in stiffer side but there is no compromise with riding comfort in this bike.It's seating posture helps you to roll 2 to 3 hours nonstop.Ns200 is also a good coice for long ride.Specially for hill ride.

Pulsar NS200 User Reviews
  • Having a bike was a childhood dream for me. I spent over 3 months researching all the available bikes in India before finally choosing the Yamaha R15. From the moment I saw the bike I could sense there was something very special about it. Not just its excellent looks but also it's brilliant performance. From the YouTube videos of various riders demonstrating the R15 I could tell that it's an 'Exceptional' Bike. I took a test ride and was really impressed with it. Before that I had an opportunity to also ride the KTM RC200. I preferred the R15 over all other bikes in the 150-200cc set. I will now present all my findings having done over a 1100km on this bike in just under a month. The engine and performance is excellent. Perfection. Great pickup, smooth transmission, easy gear shifts, good braking and tons of power if needed. This bike is deceptively fast. I just want to mention I like to keep at very safe speeds. I remember recently i was cruising at about 60 in the city and the road had less traffic so I decided to throttle it just a little. Within seconds I looked at the speedo and it was at 110kmph. It's surely a top end monster. It is as smooth at 60kmph as it's at 100+. Zero engine strain. The mileage I got from the bike brand new with no service was 58kmpl. That's pretty unbelievable for a bike with this kind of performance. That surely indicates great engineering. The looks of this bike stand out in a big way. Very elegant and good looking design. Classic lines. I can see people staring at it at intersections. The bike gets compliments all the time. The bike off roads surprisingly well too. I took it to Damdam lake and I could take it through the steep dirt tracks to the lakeside without a problem. The riding posture is aggressive and I personally love it. It's feels great to ride this bike. The key is to keep your arms and wrists relaxed and use your legs to grip the tank and thus distribute your body weight off your upper body. This is actually the recommended way of riding ALL kinds of bikes as per riding instructors. Since I got the bike I don't drive my car much anymore. That's how much fun this is. That too with Indian traffic and weather which can be challenging at times. I have already toured a little on this bike having done about 1000km going on road trips riding many hours at a stretch. No problems to report at all. A true winner. Buy with confidence. I will recommend that you get all the accessories as well, like crash guards etc. They all are very good for your bike and help keep it safe. Special thanks to Yamaha JM Motors Noida for their great support throughout the buying experience. They worked fully throughout the peak of the pandemic. I hope that you found this review useful. Please do follow me on YouTube. My name is Arjun Kaul aka Lord. Stay safe and happy riding)

  • I bought this bike as my first bike and my review can be biased. The best thing about Yamaha R15 V3 is that you just can't get enough from a 155 cc, This bike is more than a 155 cc bike. Now talk about the pros and cons. According to me, this bike has the best performance among the 155cc, offering 19 bhp power and 14 torque. Another best thing is the variable valve actuation which helps a lot in delivering power in different rpm ratios. The look is truly based on the Yamaha R15 and looks just amazing. Now as everyone knows this bike has the mileage. I am getting 46-49kmpl by daily commuting which includes every type of drive. The features are also too good as you get a digital instrument console, which has a lot of pf information in it. This bike is a beast when comes to curves. I have upgraded my bike with 150/110 tyre sections in the rear and front. Now the confidence I get on curves is just unbelievable. Braking is very decent and never faced any issue with it. There are more pros than I have already mentioned, but the only cons which I think should be considered can be riding position, which is more aggressive and can be uncomfortable for long rides. But in the end, it doesn't matter, because when you want the thrill of a true sports bike. You know there is no comfort. I just love my bike.

  • I think according to me there is no any one bike to compete this in india or may be outside of india bcs its power, style , looks, specifications, mileage and overall performance , stability, reliability, and last bt not least its technology of japan so definitely win to good .. value for money bike and fully sport bike so i don't expect to comfort like tourer bike ..so before buying keep in mind these points and one thing its my opinion according to my experience with this bcs i love technology and sports bikes only ...

  • When V3 launched I thought there is no difference between the V2 but that's wrong there is lot of difference like bike body, headlight, digital screen meter, comfortable seat (including rider and rear). Actually the main thing I love the control of this bike and engine sound when you reach above 80 kmpl it's sounds like a beast and even you go upto 157 to 160 kmpl on this bike. Another thing is riding comfortable and I never get bored riding the Yamaha R15 V3.
