Both bikes are good enough. The Bajaj Pulsar 220F, despite its age, still remains an aspirational motorcycle for Indian buyers given its performance and features. Though the motor isn’t the most refined one out there, it is comfortable for city commutes as well as capable enough for highway touring. On the other hand, the R15 V3 remains one potent small-capacity supersport for beginners. In its version 3.0 guise, it has become sharper and more focused, making it great for sport riding or track enthusiasts. However, the aggressive riding stance could cause discomfort if you intend to use the bike for daily commuting and the quality of components have also gone down. You may compare both bikes accordingly. Do take a test ride for better clarity. Check out authorised dealership details.
Bajaj Pulsar 220F, despite its age, still remains an aspirational motorcycle for Indian buyers given its performance and features. Also, the handling dynamics of the motorcycle are likeable enough. It is partly faired, has impressive performance, a great list of features, and engaging handling making it ideal for riders looking for an exciting all-rounder to start off with. Moreover, we would suggest you to take a test ride for a better understanding of performance and comfort. Click on the link and select your desired city for dealership details.
It has not mentioned anywhere in manual book that bs6 complying petrol to be used. However, bajaj service advised me to use bs6 petrol in pulsar 220f bs6 or any other bs6 model otherwise issues may encounter on throttle body as I'm facing problem on stability of rpm level while starting of my bike and engine got turnoff for that issues. Carbon is being deposited on throttle body for using non bs6 petrol. I don't know how much true is this and how shall I get bs6 complying petrol pump. Pls let me know if anybody know about this matter.
If BS6 is introduced, then it is obvious that we all will get more refined fuel for our bikes. No need to take tension of fuel.You could add booster in your petrol instead. All petrol pumps always keeps a more refined petrol with a little more price, you can ask them at the time of refuelling.
If your budget is up to 1.30 L then pulsar 220F and If your budget is up to 1.70 L then KTM Duke 200 If your from middle class family then go for pulsar 220f , Duke price is high, maintenance high, mileage gives less than pulsar. If you are planning to have KTM for enjoyment then go for it and when u feel it's loosing my pocket money then sale it back and buy pulsar 220F . This advice is only for students. If you are well educated, employee... Then go for KTM. No doubt if you have money then go for KTM 390 Duke also.
Pulsar 220F Reason is I have exchanged my pulsar 220F with my friends KTM Duke 200 for few days and I feel the power and torque is more in KTM and yet safety factor is little less compared to 220F
If u need both power n mileage go for 220f...If u dun care abt mileage u btr go for duke 200
First of all congratulations to u, that u buy and 220f pulsar.unfortunately Bajaj give us only single channel ABSthat mean ABS only operating on the front wheel.so if u r fast u should apply 70% pressure on front wheel and 30 % on rear wheel.if u r driving fast or slow.that is the technical answer for u. but the fact is we the people applying 60% pressure on rear wheeland 30 % pressure on front wheel.if u r fast and there is slippery surface on the road or there is sand particles. so u need to control the bike with the help of down shifting the gear. that is come down to 5 to 4 and 4 to3rd gear. and simultaneously applying the breaksas I mentioned above. so u will not sleep with u r bike.it comes with experience.my suggestion is don't drive fast as u cannot control u r bike. .drive safe Buddy
That's the clearest of answer ..we apply rear brake more ...apply both simultaneously front withindex and middle finger ..apply engine break by downshifting the gear...enjoy the grand daddy of bikes ..pulsar 220f
The formula says, 30% rear break and 70% front brake. use both brakes together with the afore mentioned pressure ratio.
In carbureted engines, the fuel/air mixture meets in the carburetor. The mixture then goes to each cylinder through the air intakes. In the fuel injected engine, the fuel and air do not mix until they reach the cylinder. Since fuel injection systems shoot fuel directly into the cylinders, they are easier to flood (too much fuel) when starting. For this reason, starting procedures for fuel injected engines vary a good bit depending on the aircraft/engine combination. Carbureted engines undoubtedly take less talent to get started
A carburetor introduces an atomised fuel stream into the engine intake: A Fuel injector is a mechanically or electrically controlled spray nozzle that shoots the fuel charge into the intake...or directly into each of the engine cylinders via an individual injector. This variant is known as direct fuel injection.
Fuel injection atomizes the fuel through a small nozzle under high pressure, while a carburetor relies on suction created by intake air accelerated through a Venturi tube to draw the fuel into the airstream.
Both machines are absolutely perfect for indian market. I personally like 200 Ns better than 220F but that's my preference of naked sports over fender bikes. But keep in mind pulsar 220 was fastest indian bike for straight few years and that is for a reason.
What are your needs.. Depends on that. Every vehicle is different and serves a purpose. Need a semi fared with good absorb on bumpy roads 220Need a Naked for streat fighter look. And more focus to engine then ns200
Both bikes have there good quality. What is u r need and what is u r requirements. It's depends upon it. NS 200 has a ABS but it's a single channel. It has clock seating posture is good. Looking slightly hard seat. But 220 has no ABS no clock. Not so informative display. But it's looking really nice.. I think u should go with NS 200. It has high BHP than 220. Means high pick up. So go for it
Here it's as per the buyer. I being a 220 owner can share my experience as per my concern 220 is way better in all aspects Pulsar 220 cc will cost you around ₹1,40,000/- whereas R15 v3 150cc around ₹ 1,60,000/- on raid in mumbai major ratio seen I have even completed 126000 km with out any engine opening or clutch plate changes till date from 2015.
I think u go for pulsar 220 f.because as maintenance wise it will cost u low. not very aggressive position . u r wrist will not get pain after long drive.even if u have girlfriend on u r rear.even if she stick with u r back when u riding u will not feel weight. 😄. So go for pulsar 200f
Its depend on your choice. i like pulsur 220f. But now it costs around 1.3lkh and R15 v3 costs around 1.4lkh. 220f is a beast. R15v3 is also a good bike. Some extra spec in R15 v3. speedometer design , build design , ABS , and mileage 40km/l. your choice to choose your best bike.
The 220f is a good bike and is well within your budget.Torquey engine,relatively efficient and maintenance is not that much.Pretty good for long rides too but remember its a decade old bike and many new bikes are out there which is well within your budget.
If u want a bike with low maintenance and totally reliable stuff ... i wld seriously advice u to go for pulsar 220 !!! u can count one me
Bro its worth for money n services r not that's expensive as Yamaha or any other company u get parts after market also easily
My suggestion is go with bs4 model. 1. bs4 cost is low compare with bs6 model.(near about 10,000/-).2. bs6 torque and speed is reduce compare with bs4 model.3. only one changes done by bs6 model i.e pollution reduce compare with bs4 model. remaining all is same.
BS6 but you will have to wait for some time as it's not yet launched
