Pulsar NS200 Or RS200

Bajaj Auto has a firm grip on the 200cc market due to introducing the Pulsar NS200, a naked bike, and the Pulsar RS200, a fair variant. The performance of these Bajaj motorcycles is impressive and may even outperform their competitors. But consider the possibility of a more intense racing experience if they were placed against each other. Who do you think will win?

Design: Pulsar RS200 Vs NS200

The primary way the Pulsar RS200 differs from the Pulsar NS200 is in its design. The new RS200’s bulky, imposing, and aggressive dual headlamp design sets it out visually from its naked sister. The latter is slender, has sharp lines, and an aggressive stance. The tail section also has a floating clear lens LED tail lamp in place of the integrated unit on the naked body. 

If the 200 NS can be characterized as refined and well-trained, then the RS200 is more extravagantly appealing. Each of the motorcycles’ designs has a unique charm and works well in either situation.

Engine Power: Pulsar RS200 Vs NS200

The 199.5cc single-cylinder engine powering both bikes produces 23.52 PS at 9500 RPM when carbureted and 24.5 PS at 9750 RPM when it has a fuel injection system installed on the Pulsar NS200. Furthermore, the torque of the RS200 is now 18.6 Nm greater than that of the NS200, which was 18.3 Nm. Both engines are liquid-cooled and employ three spark plugs.

WHEELBASE1363 mm1345 mm

Both types use the same 6-speed gearbox to send power to the back wheel. The Bajaj Pulsar RS200 has larger dimensions and higher weight (165 kg compared to 145 kg for the naked model), more than make up for the bike’s greater power. According to Bajaj, the top speed of the RS200 is 135 km/h, while that of the Pulsar NS200 is 141 km/h.

Braking Technology: Pulsar RS200 Vs NS200

Furthermore, the 300 mm front disc on the new Pulsar RS200, as opposed to the 280 mm front disc on the Bajaj NS200, increases stopping power. Single-channel ABS is also included as standard equipment. The RS200 and 200 NS are identical:

  • The same perimeter frame
  • Instrument panel
  • 4-spoke split alloy wheels
  • Telescopic forks upfront
  • A mono-shock suspension system at the back

They also include a 230mm rear disc brake.

The final choice is based on what you ultimately require. The NS200 is one of the best bikes under 2 lakh, available at Rs 1.68 lakhs. But if you can afford to spend an extra Rs. 25,000–40,000, the RS 200 will have projector lighting, fuel injection, ABS, and a full fairing. Velocity, strength, and acceleration radiate from both motorcycles. Both bikes have powerful engines that give you the power you need to win any race. The most excellent choice for a sports bike for commuting is the Pulsar NS200. If you want to get more out of your bike, the RS200 is excellent value for money.
