Q. RS200 BS4 or RS200 BS6 which one is best?
  • The difference between the BS4 and BS6 versions is despite the BS6 update, powering the Bajaj Pulsar RS 200 is a 199.5cc single-cylinder liquid-cooled motor derived from the KTM 200 range. The BS6 fuel-injected motor on the RS makes 24.5PS and 18.7Nm, 0.1Nm more than its BS4 counterpart. The 6-speed transmission has been left untouched. The Pulsar RS 200 features a perimeter frame, a chunky telescopic fork and a gas-charged monoshock. Anchoring the bike is a single 300mm disc up front and a 230mm disc at the rear with dual-channel ABS. The earlier BS4 model came with a single-channel setup.

Q. I am fully confused If am comparing RS 200 with R15 v3. Which bike is better for long drive and good mileage and better performance?
  • In all the three aspects you have mentioned my friend, RS200 is better. For long drives the riding position isn't so aggressive, which makes it easier to ride long distances. Your girlfriend would be more comfortable plus u both would look better on an RS than an R15, she won't feel like sitting on the floor above you. Mileage would be more or less the same. My RS gives around 37-40 in traffic. RS is 200cc. Also it is heavy. I have experienced that is has been stabler on road and highways, although its weight isn't so helpful during sharp turns. For your purposes mentioned, RS will be a better option.
  • According to me it's hard to choose between both but as an enthusiast and Indian I see people neglecting rs for it's desiness but no it's not bad when compared with r15 in terms of engine and electrical rs its way better so we should keep supporting Indian company so that they offer more better in future #pulsardefinitelymale
  • Bro.... go for RS200...I am using RS for last 3.5 years and done 48000 kms still it's a beast ,fuel economy is around 42 km/ltr average....If you tour a lot then RS is better option...RS have better power and topend than R15 v3....Still confused...?Then go for test ride at least 30 minutes

  • 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.
