200Ns - heavy bike not for regular use

3 years ago by Zippi25,367 views

Style

style is amazing, you love to see all the style aspects and enjoy admiration from others. The cost for this styling is also justified. This is not a expensive bike if we consider all that it offers.

Engine performance, fuel economy and gearbox

engine performance (specification) is remarkable. It stands apart from any other indian bike in market. The engine never feels thirsty for power. But.. It is recommended by bajaj to drive this beast below 48kmph for first 2000 km.. What a shame.

Fule economy is amazing - before first service i was getting slightly more than 45kmpl

gearbox- i am not going to comment about the gearbox as such - i never saw it naked and don't understand the details, but still i would say that 6 gears is a problem. Even for a regular 40-50kmph speed you need to shift to 6th gear and then on any speedbreaker or bad road spin down to at least 2nd gear.. And up again to 6th then to 2nd.. What a pain. Just to overtake a car from standstill (typically after the traffic signal turns green), i have to put so much of effort to get the correct gear. I don't enjoy this and surely nobody who use this bike for regular travel.

Ride quality & handling

ride quality is not very smooth, you feel the road. The best part is you will never be afraid of big holes or very very bad roads with this bike, its build gives the confidence that it will handle everything without any breakage.

Handling is tough.. This is not meant for city traffic. It is slightly broader than other bikes around and 6 gears to manage plus the bike is heavy.. I mean it, if you try to maneuver it when it is not upright (during turning etc) it give a hard time. The carburator is not very refined and the rpm goes from 500 to 2000 in idling. Cluthch lever is heavy/tight. Gear lever is not very convinently place. It is not very smooth as well. One have to apply almost double the effort to shift the gear as compared to a splendor.

Final words

good package in reasonable price. Buy it only for the raising your heart-beat and unorthodox driving. This is not at all good for day to day driving

areas of improvement

weight.. If the bike is lying down, it takes a huge effort to pull up the bike. If you have parked it somewhere and wish to push it back after sitting on the bike - it seems almost impossible. You can move this bike only by riding on it and with its engine power.

Carburattor - it is old technology in this future design bike.

Chain - it is usual in all bajaj bikes - rattling of the chain

gear shift - we don't want to tell the whole world when we want to change the gear. There should not be such a significant sound expected during gear changes.

Main stand - this should be a standard equipment instead of an accessory.

Pros

style, price, suspension, fuel economy

cons

weight, carburettor

    Comfort while ridingWider shape means that it feels bulkier and more muscular. Its thicker handlebar grips have an enhanced texture and reinforce the feel of control, despite it being a large bike. Riding the bike is simple and enjoyable: the overall seating position is...

    The pulsar ns 200 has always been one of the best handlers to come from the bajaj stable. Unlike its ktm cousin, the ns 200 trades the ktm duke 200's sharp reflexes for a surefooted feel... Cycle parts too are not as exotic or lightweight as the duke 200 but on a twisty...
