Q. Which one is best in ns200 or duke 200?3.5K Views Add Answer136 AnswersSushant | 2 years ago
Well this question will always remain in the minds of bike enthusiasts. Both bike have got same hearts but the file makes marginally higher power and with lesser weight it also is quicker between the two. Technology wise again Duke shines over NS. NS does outperforms Duke on the top speed battle but only on an open highway. But the best part where NS beats Duke is the city rides. Indian roads are full of people holes and the suspension setup on Duke is Rock hard designed for race track. So, there is a difficulty in choice. Even the spare parts for Duke are costly. My suggestion is NS. Why? Because, you spend less while you purchase, your after sale cost is less, you get a really good performer in this segment, of course you cannot beat file in a race, but how often are you going to race, you get softer suspension that is not harsh on your back yet gives you respectable handling. But if you can really afford some premium for better quality go for Duke.Tushar | 2 years ago
If you are looking to sprint around town and maybe even hit the track at times, Duke 200 is your best friend. However, it feels a little restless at times, nothing negative here, that is just how the motorcycle is, always eager to go. It gets better equipment, suspension, fatter tyres, bigger brakes, fuel injection and everything. But that adds almost 50K. And the gearing isn’t highway friendly. The 200 NS/AS will be better for going long distances. Acceleration is lower than Duke but still very good. Being a Bajaj, there could be some rattles here and there which you will have to deal with. You lose of stuff like USD forks, FI and all. But saving 50K over the Duke for close to similar performance, you can’t complain much. Also, if you have budget constraint go with Pulsar Ns200 which is around 50k cheaper than Duke.Vasu | 1 year ago
Hi NS200 gives 5 to 8 more km than duke and have more top end speed. Budget friendly too. Cons: more vibration’s then duke. And cheaper parts have to maintain lot.Duke200 has unique eye catchy design and undoubtably a Drag King and solid build.. you can get 35km approx. can rough use. minimum vibrations on top end.have to maintain chain regularly..Both have price difference. Choice is yours..I recommend Duke..Matthew | 1 year ago
See there are various factorsNs 200 is a comfortable bike to ride and sporty as well, good on bumps, after sales serve is cheaper,Duke 200 is not so good with potholes, but very sporty to ride with being super nimble and good quality engine...Depends on you how you would want your ideal bike to be...Sporty or ComfortQuatity or QualityNikhil | 8 months ago
There is a big debate on which is the best. If you want a quick bike with a good mileage and better comfort then the NS200 is the way to go. But if you want a faster, more aggressive and more light bike then the Duke200 is the bike you should go for. Also for long distances the pulsar is better than the duke.Sushant | 2 years ago
It depends on what's your taste. If you like technically advanced bike like a DOHC engine, electronic fuel injection, fully digital tachometer with a lot of features only then go for Duke. I am saying this because there not huge difference when it comes to power output, similarly, on the road Duke wins in acceleration marginally which one can see in a race. And in reality how often do you race? Also the Duke loses on the top speed battle, fuel efficiency and maintenance cost.Shreyas | 1 year ago
For about 50k extra, you get an instrument console that is leagues ahead, USD forks, wider tyres, better power to weight ratio, better body balance(the weight of the ns 200 is concentrated towards the tank which makes the duke 200 a far better handler), better part quality and brand value. After using 200NS for 3 years, switching to duke 200 feels like quite an upgrade to me.Dj | 1 year ago
