The 200S is based on the Xtreme 200R. It has the same chassis, same suspension, same gearbox, same wheels and same tyres. Churning out around 18bhp and 17Nm of torque, this 199cc engine is relatively refined and free revving. And the five speed gearbox is a slick shifting one too.
The suspension layout still includes a set of telescopic forks upfront and a preload adjustable monoshock at the rear. And, the S, like the R, runs on 17-inch wheels at both ends with grippy MRF rubber. There’s also no change to the brakes, and the S gets single channel ABS.
New features compared to the 200R meanwhile, includes just one - a new instrument cluster. It is an all digital unit, and it has read-outs for speed, engine speed, gear and time. It also has two trip computers which throw up info on distance travelled, average speed and the time taken. There’s also an Eco display which helps the rider ride more economically. And lest we forget, the S also gets an all-LED head lamp.
