The advantages of the Bajaj Pulsar NS200 over the TVS Apache 200

New Delhi: Bajaj Auto's MY-2023 Pulsar NS200 has received significant updates like dual-channel ABS and inverted front forks. The price of the upgraded streetfighter has increased to Rs. 1.47 lakh (ex-showroom).

It competes with TVS Apache RTR 200 4V at the given price. Which of these two deserves to wear the 200cc championship ring? Let's investigate.

By introducing the Pulsar line in 2001, Indian bike manufacturer Bajaj Auto completely changed the performance motorbike market in that country.

The automaker completely changed the perception of motorbike enthusiasts on our shores with the NS200 in 2012 by introducing a new triple-spark with 4-valve, SOHC setup in the 200cc class. But now that the protests are gathering momentum, the company has updated its streetfighter lineup.

The Bajaj Pulsar NS200 is a motorbike that sits on a perimeter frame and features a powerful fuel tank, an angular halogen headlamp, a clip-on handlebar, an under-belly exhaust and a stylish LED taillamp.

The TVS Apache RTR 200 4V gets a wide handlebar, sharp looking LED headlamp, double barrel exhaust and slim LED taillight. It also gets a double-cradle frame and sculpted fuel tank with extensions. Both the bikes ride on 17-inch alloy wheels.

Both the Bajaj Pulsar NS200 and the TVS Apache RTR 200 4V get dual-channel ABS for better braking performance, along with disc brakes on both the wheels for the safety of the rider.

While the latter has front forks that can be extended, the former has inverted front forks. An adjustable mono-shock with preload is a standard component on both the motorcycles.

The 199.5cc, single-cylinder, liquid-cooled, 4-valve engine that powers the Bajaj Pulsar NS200 produces a maximum power output of 24.13 horsepower and 18.5 Nm of peak torque.

The 197.75cc, single-cylinder, 4-valve, air-and-oil-cooled TVS Apache RTR 200 4V engine is available with a maximum output of 20.2hp and peak torque of 16.8Nm. The latter gets a 5-speed gearbox, while the former gets a 6-speed one.

TVS Apache RTR 200 4V is priced between Rs. 1.4 lakh and Rs. 1.45 lakh in India, while the 2023 Bajaj Pulsar NS200 is available (all prices, ex-showroom) at Rs.

The Pulsar NS200, in our opinion, makes more sense as it offers an aggressive design, a stronger motor and better suspension at a better value for money proposition.
