Bajaj has introduced the ABS variant of the Pulsar NS 200 which carries a premium of around Rs 12,000 over the standard model. Bajaj Autohas passed on the GST (Goods & Service Tax) benefits to consumers and this has resulted in the ex-showroom price of its prooducts being reduced marginally.
We pit the new Bajaj Pulsar NS200 against the TVS RTR 200, to find out which one is the better all-rounder.
The NS 200 is back and better than before, we work out the changes
The 2017 version of the Pulsar NS200 gets a two-tone paint job with new graphics. The semi-digital instrument cluster is legible and easy to use. It also gets a shift light beacon along with other basic readouts like a side stand indicator and high-temperature warning lamp. While the NS showcases admirable build quality, there is still room for improvement. The bike gets three new paint options that make the bike look fresh. You also get funky wheel rim graphics that are colour-coded with the bike. The NS now gets a belly-pan fairing as well.
The single-cylinder, liquid-cooled, 199.5cc engine is shared with the RS 200, albeit without fuel injection. Peak power produced is 23.5PS at 9500rpm, while peak torque of 18.3Nm arrives at 8000rpm. Equipped with Bybre brakes, the Pulsar gets a single 280mm petal disc up front and a 230mm disc at the rear which offer a sharp bite under hard braking. It is disappointing that Bajaj hasn’t offered ABS even as an optional extra.
TVS Apache RTR 200: The TVS RTR 200 is a very capable motorcycle. When compared to the NS200, the Apache RTR 200 is not only commuter-friendly but also more economical to run in the city. It is a good option for someone looking for a fun-packed motorcycle with good low-end torque and a dash of performance.
KTM 200 Duke: The KTM 200 Duke is the most exciting motorcycle of the lot when it comes to performance. It is a zippy motorcycle that can not only putter around town but can also be thrashed on twisty roads. It may, however, turn out to be an overly aggressive motorcycle for some, not just in terms of performance, but with the riding posture as well.
The Pulsar NS200 comes across as a well-rounded package that can efficiently take on almost every kind of task required. Be it charging into corners, riding flat out on highways or manage daily chores with ease, the Bajaj Pulsar NS 200 makes a strong case for itself. It offers good grunt, stopping power and well-balanced ergonomics which makes it an all-rounder.
Bajaj Pulsar NS200 is available in 3 Colours :
Sporty styling, Good performance, Affordable price
No fuel injection, Bike feels front heavy, No ABS option
The Pulsar 200NS is a great alternative to the KTM Duke 200 on which it is based. It's not as powerful or fun to ride, but it packs in the best price-performance in its class.
