Recently Asked User Questions

Q. Can Bajaj Pulsar RS200 beat RC200?
  • Its impossible for RS 200 to defeat RC 200, as RC 200 has slightly better torque and horsepower and plus point for RC 200 is its 10-14 kgs lighter than rs 200 its a big difference. RC 200 comes with speed lock by company it can't reach more than 140 km/hr as we try for higher from limit it automatically slowdown.As concern about RS 200 it goes more than 140 km/hr
  • Absolutely after reaching 137kmph you have to be patient because the cutoff in ktm 200 will be in 137kmph.. but the top speed of RS is 154kmph.. but on the initial gears RC will throw it's dusts
  • No not at all rs200 initial punch is better than rc200 because i have both bikes and i personally like rs200 more and feel initial punch of rs200 is better than rc

    this bike is an awesome choice.you get a lot of things that includes good power, suspension, braking and damn good looks.Earlier i thought that its service cost will be high but that is very reasonable.i am using my bike since 2 years and to now it has not got any issues with it.Everything about this bike seems so good.Perfect for the streets and comfortable on long rides.I would like to say one thing at last.GIVE LOVE AND CARE TO THIS ENGINE AND IT WILL NEVER BETRAY YOU.

  • 5.0

    Well pulsar the perfect beginner package I would say . It has a great high range but if you don't reach there much it can be used as a normal commuter bike but if you wanna roar through the streets you have the power band from 6000 rpm all the way to the red line there it's a beast .I love Rs specially for the riding posture and the top speed.

    many people ask me does back pain occur while driving long distance..Answer for that I doesn't feel any back pain with this...some of my friends said that they had wrist pain or shoulder pain ..that's because of they are sitting in wrong position... Don't allow your arms to get your body weight full on them,for that you need to put your arms as 'L' shape
