Bajaj Pulsar NS200 vs Bajaj Pulsar RS 200 : Comparison

The launch of the first fully-faired Bajaj motorcycle gave Pulsar fans a fantastic choice to pick from. Not only is it said to be quicker and more massive than the 200NS, but it also even has the Anti-lock Braking System's (ABS).

Features: NS 200 vs RS 200

The Bajaj Pulsar RS200 is a sturdy motorcycle. It has the dual projector headlamp configuration which has a high demand in youngsters. The rear taillight is an LED device that, compared to most motorcycles in India, is quite rare. The bike's front wheel suits the hue of the graphics on the bike. The bike, though, looks spectacular and upmarket. The design proposition also fits the ideal category for youngsters, even though the model is old now.

On the other hand, the Bajaj Pulsar NS 200 is just a tough streetfighter. It comes with minimalist tank fairing and a finely made headlamp structure. It has a regular headlight unit but an LED unit that resembles the Pulsar lineup is the tail lamp. In both bikes, the alloy wheel construction is the same.

Bajaj Pulsar: NS 200 vs RS 200

  • Fuel Injection: RS200 is injected with fuel, which can result in a crisper power supply and a better throttle response.
  • ABS: Although optional, this is the RS's most notable change. Interestingly, even as an alternative, their KTM models do not get ABS.
  • Power Increment: RS200 produces greater power of 1ps and more torque of 0.3Nm. While the peak torque is achieved at the same 8000 rpm, a wee bit later, 250 rpm is the peak power to be exact in Pulsar.
  • Braking: The Faired RS comes with a wider 300mm disc brake compared to the 280mm front disc of the 200NS. The same 230mm petals are at the rear. When RS 200 vs NS 200 is compared in speed, 200NS is claimed to have 135kmph. The Bajaj RS200 has 141 kmph.


The same powertrain is shared by both bikes. A 199.5 cc single-cylinder, fuel-injected, a liquid-cooled model is the engine on both motorcycles. The engine produces a combined power of around 23.8 bhp and 18.7 Nm of peak torque. The numbers are substantially high enough if we equate other bikes at a comparable amount. A 6-speed unit is a gearbox with an engine. The RS was formerly the only fuel-injected bike of the two, but now both bikes come with a fuel injection system after BS6.


When compared, RS 200 vs NS 200, the RS200 has a more dedicated riding stance. Both bikes are fitted with a standard amount of hardware, or we may claim that they both share similar hardware. On both motorcycles, suspension duty is managed by the front telescopic suspension and the rear adjustable mono-shock suspension. The braking on both bikes are the same. Brakes are assisted with the dual-channel ABS in the Pulsar RS200, while the single-channel ABS is assisted in the Pulsar NS200.

The Pulsar RS200 and NS200 both share the same semi-digital velocity console. The complexities of architecture and driving constrain the significant shift in both bikes..
