Summary
Pulsar NS200 is powered by a 199.5 cc, single cylinder engine is good for 23.17 BHP at 9500 rpm and 18.3 Nm at 8000 rpm. The engine comes mated to a 6-speed gearbox. NS200 weighs 152 kg and claims a top speed of 136 kmph. Bajaj Autos silently relaunched the motorcycle as their was no official event for its arrival. A lot of fans were waiting for the NS200 but they would be disappointed to know that the bike is not equipped with Fi and ABS. Bajaj should have kept these features as an option like TVS is offering on the Apache RTR 200.2017 KTM 200 Duke is here and as it was expected, it didn't get any major upgrades in terms of specs and design. It carries the same 199.5 cc, single cylinder engine producing 25 PS at 10,000 rpm and 19.2 Nm at 8000 rpm. The engine comes mated to a 6-speed manual gearbox that lacks the use of slipper clutch. It carries a small 10.2 liter fuel tank and weighs 148 kg with 90 percent fuel. The motorcycle comes with 300 mm front disc brake. 200 Duke now gets Orange painted alloy wheels and 3 new shade options (Orange, Black and White) for its 2017 version.
