Bajaj Pulsar 200 NS vs Yamaha R15 V2


Yamaha R15 vs Pulsar 200NS

Off-late the most frequently asked question on MotorBeam is which bike is better? Yamaha R15 or the Pulsar 200 NS? Well, if you are looking at purchasing either of these motorcycles, you should know that these bikes are as different as chalk and cheese. While one is a naked street-fighter, the other is a sports bike. The Pulsar 200 NS is the more powerful of the two but the Yamaha R15 is more technologically advanced. We ran a poll to see what our readers prefer and the results are quite surprising. While people swear by the Pulsar, the R15 actually received more votes (Pulsar 200 NS vs Yamaha R15 poll screenshot above).

Now the Yamaha R15 vs Pulsar 200 NS decision is very simple, if you are clear about what you want. If you are looking for a full-faired motorcycle with better handling and Yamaha quality, then the Yamaha R15 V2.0 is for you. If you are the value for money kinds, who wants bang for their buck and very good performance, the Pulsar 200 NS is for you. The Pulsar 200 NS is quicker, reaching 100 km/h in less than 10 seconds, while the R15 takes around 12 seconds. The Pulsar NS has a higher top speed at 136 km/h, against 129 km/h of the R15.

The Bajaj Pulsar 200 NS is priced at Rs. 99,200/-, while the Yamaha R15 Version 2.0 will set you back by Rs. 1.20 lakhs (on-road, Mumbai). For the additional Rs. 20,000/- you get fuel injection, full fairing, better handling, twin headlights, sportier riding position and a proven engine. Thus if speed is not your criteria and you have a budget of Rs. 1.20 lakhs, the Yamaha R15 is the bike to buy. You can’t go wrong with either of these machines and at the end of the day, you should get yourself a test ride and see which one suits you better.

    The question indeed holds some practicality. But from the eyes of a biker, the R15 is God while the Pulsar is aiming to be one. It still has a long way to go.

    R15 is a far better track tool, where as Pulsar 200 NS is urban machine which is comfortable and at the very same time easy on your pocket.

    @Joy: Yes, you are bang one with the statement(But from the eyes of a biker, the R15 is God while the Pulsar is aiming to be one. It still has a long way to go.) and there is reason behind it. Yamaha is 10 decades old where as Pulsar is a decade old bike.
    Infact I believe they have had a better technology then and still they struggled here in India 5 years back. I agree they have got some awesome bikes from their own meagre arsenal however they could have done this way back in the 2000 when they had all the hideous looking bikes.
    Why now and why not then?
    I know bajaj has ‘N’ number of issues and struggle to tackle those, having said that Bajaj as a brand rose to the situation and made masses happy when the Yamaha failed.
    Yamaha as one of the leaders in technology should have made masses happy way back when we were toddlers. But did they??
    Look at what stir the Bajaj has created, every bike in this market is only compared with the Pulsar and thats an irony. Every reader, avid biker comments or criticizes or has something to write when Pulsar is the part of that story.
    You name it and you have it. Havent the brand succeeded wonderfully even if they failed in some areas miserably.

    I am the proud owner of a Pulsar 180 DTSi UG1 and never indulge in word wars provided those are not personal.

    But always like to make people realise that they always miss the important ingredient of biking in India and thats ‘Pulsar’.

      We all should be very proud of the Pulsar and Bajaj.. as they made India proud.. when so many other countries are still dependent on Japanese companies.. Indians make bikes which if not better are equally good as the Japanese.. The author has conveniently not mentioned that the Pulsar NS has a better mileage than the R15.. also maintenance wise Pulsar spares would be cheaper.. furthermore the engine is proven in the KTM and not new as mentioned in the article

        I want to add some more points here that
        Rear sitting position of the pulsar 200 NS is better then R15 v2.
        The 200NS has a high power to weight ratio then R15 v2.
        The 200NS has a good engine with 3 spark plug technology to burn the fuel effectively.

          Absolutly true Dude, R15 doesnt have a pillion holder which is extremely risky, and even the pillion seat is too thin, making the pillion to stop the bike every now and then.

          If a rider on pulsar 200ns can ride the bike continuosly for 4 hours without halting, the same rider will get off from R15 v2 in less than 2 hours.

          In simple words Pulsar 200ns is practically the best for Indian road conditions, whereas r15 needs a lot more ground works. (Just check out how many used R15 v2.0 are sold on websites)

          If fuel can burn better with two over one Spark plug and even better with three, then why not to put 4 Spark Plugs ? Even it will Sound Much better…4 Stroke 4 valve 4 Plug …Bla Bla Bla….LOL

    Well, I really don’t understand when people say R15 is a good track tool, can it beat Pulsar on track, it’s anybody’s guess what the result will be. With Pulsar’s 23 bhp power and quicker accelearation out of every corner, R15 doesn’t stand a chance. So, there you go! even on track P200NS is a better choice. But it’s on highways, where R15′s fairing comes into play, if somebody is riding extensively on highways, then certainly R15, provided that he is comfortable with seating posture, otherwise P200NS all the way.

    Very well said Nail…!!
    Pulsar has created its own place in Indian biking arena, every biker while purchasing a bike once think about it… and that’s manufacturers success….yes pulsar has some problems but others are not flawless. we always talk about the reliability of pulsars but I will say see the sales chart of Bajaj bikes why masses purchase an ‘Unreliable bikes’ is simply because Bajaj offer what people want…!!! the answer is in it…
    we always observe whenever a topic of bajaj bikes come peoples start criticizing.But I think its manufacturers success…
    And coming to the topic comparing NS with R15 is not a good idea..because both bikes are from different gens a street fighter & a race tool machine..if you want to compare r15 then lets wet for Pulsar 200ss…it will be good idea indeed….!!!!!
    But I am not getting reason, why Japanese took their main weapons from their armory,do you?

    pulsar ns or R15v2, Its all about personal preferences . and about both bikes…
    1.dont think the pulsar can slice big corners above 100 kmph even with another rubber.thats wr the R15v2 stands ahead…even in higher speeds the R15 can easily slice away big corners..
    2. and about quicker acceleration and speed….any bike which has 19+ bhp and 200+cc can beat a r15v2s 150cc and 16+ Bhp engine easily…but thats not mean that 200cc + bike is much better than R15 in terms of technology and Overall performance and handiling and Quality….
    3. on the road when both bikes going side by side which one grab more attention???.. I can definitely say its going to be R15 V2 ..
    5. About triple spark technology…well i think its just a marketing tool to show that bike is better in terms of technology..If u guys are against me in this statement….just compare the KTM dukes performance with single spark plug and Pulsar ns With triple spark plug..both bikes are neck to neck figures wen it comes to Fuel economy and in performance The Duke is ahead..

    • Pulsarboy August 9, 2012, 3:53 am

      did you try slicing those big corners with these two bikes, or you just think it is so?! Both these bikes sport perimeter frame, then what makes you think that R15 will be better in corners, so far reviews rated P200NS slightly below R15, but they were all testing it with Eurogrips. Tyres make a lot of difference, with better set of tyres it will easily show a clean pair of heels to R15, not that it can’t without better tyres, but it will be that much more easier. Duke costs a good 40k over P200NS, so the performance gap/equipment levels on it is justified there.

        ya Pulsarboy i had done that with R15..but not 100 but it is 90+
        40k over pulsar..dude ..why this 40k dude…just think…It a class of its on so 10K plus there…
        It has Big and better rubber so + 5K and then it has better frame,reversed Forks…better engine…smooth engine..25+bhp…quick acceleration..better top…better handling,almost equal Fuel economy ..every thing is better tahn Pulsar Ns…only bad is it is made by bajaj so quality in some area will suffer…i can say triple spark is nothing just a marketing tool…..
        the 150cc pulsar has DTSI and just compare it with CBZ or hunk or Unicorn..there is no advantage with its twin spark..these bikes are almost similar in power and fuel economy .
        so wats the advantage of having twin spark..no more..

      • gokul August 9, 2012, 10:56 am

        and about frame …both have similar frames..but the resemblance ends there..grow up dude…there are other things that support the cornering and handling ability of the bikes…things like the riding position,the weight of the bike, overall proportion of the bike…it that areas the R15 is way better than Pulsar ns…the only thing that the r15 missing is the engine power like the pulsar ns…ya i know R15 cant match up with the power of pulsar ns …even an old pulsar 200 can beat r15 in races…the r15 is all about the smoothness and quality and handling

        @pulsarboy considering your above point R15 is 50cc less than pulsar 200NS. With this gap of 50cc, if R15 can give a good challenge to pulsar 200ns…. then imagine if yamaha launches 200cc bike then wat will Bajaj do will dey go for 400cc bike wit N number of spark plugs to challenge yamaha 200cc….lol….only thing wat i mean to say is to look at wat optimum performance dey have obtained from 150cc bike….which is only obtained from 200cc bikes of other makers….so now this is wat technology is …..

  • Abhisek August 12, 2012, 10:57 pm

    Fas but you have to consider that even with price as no consideration almost half people opted for NS. What if price was into consideration? We know the answer ;-) But the main competition R15 will face when NS is launched in full faired avatar. It would outclass R15 in many things. But it should have a good design as R15 is a looker. Also R15 is just 150cc engine which is small. 200cc, 23.5bhp is something a big bike as per Indian stds. NS is classs.

    I waz in love wid Yamaha R15. Until I met Pulsar 200 NS

    The best bike India has in this segment!
    Awesome performence, easy maintainence, gr8 average and nice handling and grip which is very much suitable for indian road conditions.
    I love the naked looks of the bike, and
    If any one wants to experiment on body modifications, I suggest you people to put Yamaha R15 or a Yamaha Fazer fairing!

    The bike gets an awesome superbike look..

    My few bits :-)

    Looks:-
    R15 V2.0: Looks Great over all (Still not as proportional as YZF R125).
    P 200 NS: Killer Looks, Appears much Bigger than R15. Rear Designe not up to expectations & Needs Farring.

    Performance and Handeling:-
    R15 V2.0: Performs Best in its segment. Handeling is The Best on Track. Indian Road Conditions, Not bad Either.
    P 200 NS: Performance Better than R15(Big Engin). Handeling As good as R15 on Track (Considering Tyres Ofcourse). Indian roads, Better than R15 with

    Ride Comfort:
    R15 V2.0: Not good. Hard Suspention, Too Commited Racing Posture, Nightmare for Pillion(My friend´s GF had Cramps in her leg while trying to Climb Up the Pillion seat)
    P 200 NS: Comfortable for Both rider and pillion(Barring High speed Highway Crusing due to wind blast)

    Value for Money:
    R15 V2.0: In every sence it is VFM, But with KTM Duke at just 5-10K difference, A little Justification is required.
    P 200 NS: 100% VFM. Rather I would say its a Steel.

    Fuel Economy:
    R15 V2.0: 35-40, which is not bad for such an Exotic Machine.
    P 200 NS: 40-45, Its a dream come True, With such a power and lack of fuel injection.

    Relaiability:
    R15 V2.0: Its YAMAHA, Nothing else to say.
    P 200 NS: Its a KTM Engine, which it self is a MotorBike Giant. So Engine wise there should be no issues. For Rest of the bike, Time will tell.

    Final Verdict:
    Both the bikes are way better than most available/ in compitition.
    No one can go wrong with any of these two.
    Still, Pulsar will beat R15, any time- any Place, as it has an upper hand in Power output.

    Waiting desparatly for P200 SS ;-)

    Do you pulsar lover even go detail inspection of the 200NS. I think you did not. I suggest go for a close details look into the bike, you will understand why Bajaj able to deliver so called better technology in cheaper price.

    A bike does not count good only by performance of the bike. How many of you could go full throttle for at least 15 mins at a time on road. In Indian road it is merely possible. I think if you really looking for a long term relation with bikes, none of the available bikes are eligible. So there is no point of having discussion which bike is good.

    Now come to the comparison, let me tel u one simple thing. Just check the side stand of P200 NS and R15V2.

    Bajaj has nothing to give from them after pulsar, even older pulsar are better than new ones’ in terms of every thing. And you still bet on pulsar.

    See others, there was none except for Japanese to come here, before what do we have, M80, hero Puch!!!!!!!!
    It’s Japanese technology that we find commuter segment at least. Bajaj had collaboration with Kawasaki, can you remember KB 125ss, in ninety’s it produce 12 bhp power from 125 cc mill. After Kawasaki gone, Bajaj is actually able to increase 2 bhp power with 150 cc mill. WHERE IS THE DEVELOPMENT WITH DESI TECHNOLOGY. can you people tell me.

    Now when western countries are implementing green technology we are here cheers up that KTM, Harley, Hyosung are coming to INDIA.

    I am not going to detail technical discussion of bike comparison, just watch on the curve on the roads, if you find P220, Fazer, p200NS, R15 v1 or v2, who goes steady. I believe answer every one knows.

    I am very proud to be a yzf r15 owner. My advise for the r15ers is to be cool, because the pulsar owner’s will never accept the truth.the theory of comparision is one on one. But the pulsar guys do comparing r15 with pulsar’s150, and then with 180, 220,200 ns,…). I think they will never win the leauge until pulsar launches 300 cc. I dont know with what will they compare when yamaha launches r15 200cc. Many of the pulsar are getting altered as like r15. The fulfillness of owning a bike is obtained with r15 after rx100. Both these bikes need no physical alterations. I accept that pulsar ns is good with perfomance. If you are really that much powerful then go compete with honda cbr 250cc. The aerodynamics of r15 is similar to R1. It never get vobling sense in the high speed, curves… This bike with intelligent tuning can beat any varient of bajaj onroad.;)

And after that my dream bike is 200NS. I have purchased new BAJAJ PULSAR 200NS with very excitement and joyful. But after purchased I have faced many problems (noise and vibration in engine and body) in bike. I have complained to Bajaj service center and visited to Bajaj Service center many times. They had done many operations on bike in the presence of Engineers of Tcs Bajaj(Faridabad), Dewan Bajaj (New Delhi), Engineers (Special team of Pune) and Regional General Manager(N.Delhi). When I visited on Dewan Bajaj Service Centre, Okhla I saw that engine cover opened, There is no any operation and experiment left in my Bike and they have not left option to repair the bike. But the problems of bike does not solve till now.
    They do not replace my bike and only extend time for repairing and checking by engineers .and in last they convince me this problem is natural problem. It cannot be solve.

    On any day, with power(100km/hr in less than 10 sec is no joke), styling, and average(40-45KM/L) Pulsar NS200 beats Yamaha fair and square. In technology wise,Yamaha R15 is whisker ahead. Yamaha has a proven engine, they have produced one of the best engines you can ever get for last 10 decades, but I can tell you people, P200 NS engine ain’t a bad one in any way, it is different from what I got from my previous 150. I’m really in love with ma new Pulsar NS 200 except for the large turning radius.
    Great to see many Motorcycle enthusiasts here!

    I got a pulsar 200 ns last week in Bangalore. So far only 167 km droved.
    the bike was too good at the beginning. But since yesterday I noticed a problem. i was just going for a ride for around 12 km and i noticed that my acceleration was getting weak(like when the fuel is nearing empty, but the fuel tank is full more than 11 lit). so I stopped my bike and switched off the engine.i waited for few seconds and started it again, it started ok. But when I started raising the throttle the engine turned off. Checked if spark cables are intact, even tried using choke, same prob. switched it on again raised the throttle ,the engine switched off. Then I Waited for some time then started again and i slowly went to first gear, very slowly raised the throttle and the bike started moving but again same problem after 100 miters. Somehow managed to reach to home. Morning started and everything was fine. Derived for around 8 km and no issue faced. But evening again when wait for ride of more than 10 km again facing same issue ……. All an sudden it loses the acceleration ………… did I made the mistake of going with Pulsar 200ns ……… I will be going tomorrow to Bajaj Servicing center Mekari Circle, Bangalore …… not sure how good service they provide and can fix the issue. Anyone else also faced same issue with 200ns? Are you able to get it fixed?

    i do not ride yamaha regularly. but what i say in terms of cornering, fazer 153 is better and comfy than r15. got it? even the braking abilities are proven better. just a rear nissin disc would have made it more practical.

    Hi Bala,
    It was awesome Ride.

    Day 1. Bangalore to OOTY (Via Masinagudi 36 Hair pin Curves).
    It was good ride (Max I could go was 138KMPH speed).

    Day 2. Ooty to Mysore and then to Madikeri.
    Here is where i could take it for 144 KMPH speed – Max.
    There is one Long straight stretch where you can Enjoy the Ride.

    Stretched for a day more
    Day 3. Madikeri to Talakaveri. This is my Favorite Stretch —–
    Beautifully Fog Covered Roads. Completely Green where ever your Eyes can go. But the road condition is not that good :(

    Back to Bangalore on the same day.

    Positives :

    Power of the Bike as I told earlier was too good, in fact I this is where I enjoy more than my YAMAHA R15. R15 cannot match with the RAW power and speed that 200NS Possess.

    Never had Back pain in the whole Tour.

    Brakes: The brakes are relly good almost nearer to the Quality of R15.
    Negatives:

    Negotiating the Curves at faster speed – Here I am sure i was missing my Yamaha R15. I am not here to tell all bad about 200NS but i t was of no Match with R15.

    Vibrations from 6000 TO 7000RPM was more for me. Not too bad but yes R15 Scores better here!

  • Ravi October 11, 2012, 12:36 am

    I don’t know why people are buying R15, to me its not a good bike. i dont know why did even yamaha made a 150 cc bike vfz looks, sure its a bit affordable but if it would have had a 250 cc engine it could have edged out CBR250, DUke 200 and Ninja 250 in all areas. Comon 150 cc is plain stupid specially after having such good looks. Bad decision timed!!

    I was also not satisfied with 200 ns but after seeing 23.5 bhp power, good build quality and better handling in reviews I changed my mind. I will go for 200 ns.

    @Shekhar: yamaha is using a 150cc engine in R15 and 17 bhp and that is a lot of power for 150 cc engine so, the reason for low mileage of R15 is that it intakes more fuel . There is rule in automobile for more power you need faster and powerful storkes which is done by injecting more fuel and buring all the air in the piston chamber. BUt for economy you need to burn more fuel and squeeze all the energy it can offer.

    definately the pulsar ns have edge over the r15 in terms of speed. 23.5 bhp not a matter of joke.but its not that that how fast u can drive,its about how much safer u are at high speed.the r15 have the best in class weight ratio. Thats why its easy for cornering at high speed.no grudges about pulsar.

    Yes R15 is good for its Great looks and Ride quality and Handling Capabilities (Especially in Turnings).I agree it is one the best in its segment.

    BUT Power, Speed 200NS is better than R15.
    This is for sure. I have been using both and I am sure 200NS is much more betetr than R15.

    I think Pulsar 200NS is a great bike with curvy & naked looks. Every one become fan of Pulsar 200NS after he look the bike. I can say it will easily beat R15 & there is not at all comparison between R15 & Pulsar 200NS coz R15 is 150cc bike were Pulsar 200NS produce 199.5 cc so, I think comparison is not fair. I also like to comment that if you look Pulsar 200NS to compare with 220 it will easily beat it in every department except in CC. Pulsar 200NS coming with petal disk break which provide additional support to its class. I think if you want to compare please do the comparison with Honda 250r but if you see price Pulsar 200NS give you value for money…

    And last line for Yamaha R15 user & supporters if you want your Yamaha R15 wins the battle please compare it with Honda Unicorn. I think Unicorn also make your way difficult…

    Loves Pulsar 200NS it is a great bike…

      yamaha use MRF zepper R series–cost–2800 inr

      bajaj use normal engine with tripple spark..dual spark to sambhalta nahi tripple kya sambhela

      bajaj use normal corburtor engine jisme fuel injection ka naamo nishan nahi h
      aur yamaha use fuel injection ke sath sath fuel cleaner b use krta h
      ab aate h brakE par to aapki jankari k liye btaa du ki yamaha world no. 1 brake company NISSIN BRAKE use krta h aur bajaj ek bakwas company k brake use krta h jo kabhi bhi rider ko problem m daal sakte h..safety ka namo nishan nahi h bajaj me ..aur yamaha ride krte waqt confidence level kabile tarif banta h ..kyoki aap r15 ko 90kmph ki speed par sirf 4 second me control kr sakte ho ….ab baat krte h vibration ki..to r15 110kmph ki speed par b vibrate nahi krti..aur palsar 90 ki speed par hi vibrate kr jaati h..engine sound …palsar ki engine sound itni gandi h jese kutte ko khansi ho gayi ho…aur r15 110 ki speed par bhi awaza nahi krti..ab baat krte h look ki to r15 ki look aisi jese r6 kadhi ho…agar dono bike ko sath khada krde to palsar ko kutte bhi nahi dekhenge …aur r15 par to ladkiya itni marti h ki jese shahad ho …aur palsarns200 ki look aisi h jese palsa 135ls..ab itna kuchh mil raha h yamaha se to mehngi to hogi hi…meri mobile and gadgets ki shop h ..to me ek example dunga

        I have rode both pulsar 200Ns and Yamaha R15. The truth is that life z precious and I think r15 gives confidence that we are safer. both bikes are very good. pulsar z 200cc and it z a bit powerful but when I crossed 100 on it I cud feel vibration coz at rpm greater 8500 it starts vibrating and the faster u go the more it vibrates. pulsar gives a heavy feel. pickup z superb.
        R15 on d other hand z a bit lighter. it z a bit slower thn 200ns. but ther z no vibration evn when u cross 120. the engine feels like butter on 10500 rpm. belev me r15 gives u pleasure at 100 +. with great confidence level. pulsar at 115 makes. us feel scary. the controls of r15 are amazing.
        at last I wud say pulsar can’t beat r15 in overall performance. merely looking at topspeed z foolish. one must enjoy higher speeds n feel confident. afterall yamaha z technologically much better thn bajaj.

        Well said,

        I mean it i true that Yamaha is Very good Brand, But 200NS is simply great and cannot be compared to R15.

        BUT YES 250CBR is the better than 200NS.
        It doesn’t make any sense to get Jealous or frustrated of Pulsar.

    One thing is for sure there is no comparison between R15 and 200NS.
    200NS is much more better in power , pull and speed.
    the only one plus point in R15 is Handling/Riding Quality. It is for Kids.
    But 250CBR and Duke are much more better than 200NS

    @zeeshan-first of all let me remind you that r15v2 is a complete sports bike and not a tourer…200ns is a naked bike with an upright sitting position which is reckoned for touring.so my point is, p200 is a naked tourer bike in which we can comfortably roll for this so called 700-800kms..clear??

    I was planning to buy a bike that has power ,speed and control and good in braking and the best thing is looks I have been driving pulsar for the past one year and wat I realised is that it is very very risky to make this bike to an hault because the tyre gets skid everytym not even at high speeds but even at lower speeds the rear tyre skids so finally now I have the r15 2.0 and I am very happy to say that this was the machine I was waiting for good in braking excellent handling and extremely good in looks and make heads turns and guys believe me no one wants a bike with high power and high speed which cant be controlled or stopped so finally I say yes yamaha…..

      I road my friends R15 v1 its a amazing machine stops very quick and obey our just like that. I accept that.

      But don’t make false statement.

      If you don’t know how to stop, don’t blame the bike. I own a Pulsar 150 for past 3 year. It never ever skid for me until I want to even at high speeds. My foot peg touched the roads many time and got to line. It handle like that.

    First. Most answers you will get to a question like this will be based more on brand loyalty than actual facts. A person will almost always recommend the same brand that they ride. To recommend anything else would be somehow admitting that they made a poor choice when they bought their bike. Therefore, these answers are not very useful.

    When it comes down to it, all of the name brands will be comparable in quality, performance and mileage. If brand X were really better than Y, everyone would buy brand X. Nobody would buy brand Y. Brand Y would be forced to stop making motorcycles that no one would buy. So if either of these choices are crap, the company would have been forced to stop making them long ago.

    Don’t be so lazy. Get up and walk away from the computer. Leave your home.

    Stay with the name brands that are sold and serviced in your area. The ability to have your bike serviced later on is just as important as the features on the bike. It sucks to buy a bike and have some simple widget fail that has no replacement.

    Go to the dealers that actually sell the models that interest you. Sit on them. Sit on them long enough to see is they are comfortable. See if you like the locations of all of the controls. Ask the sales person all of your questions. If they are a decent sales person, they should be very knowledgeable about the products they sell.

    Now take the models that really interest you out for a test ride. The seat of your pants will tell you much more about the bike than any random stranger on the Internet can tell you.

    Keep notes about your observations on each bike you ride. Dealer name, dealer telephone number, Make, model, salesman’s name, engine size, price, comfort, opinions about the test ride.

    After you have ridden at least a few bikes compare your notes and just pick one.

    You will be the person riding this bike
    You will be the person maintaining this bike
    You will be the person paying for this bike
    You are the only person who needs to like this bike

    Why are you letting random strangers on the Internet choose your bike for you?

    Pick the bike that YOU like best.

    r15 sucks a big time… a waste bike with so much price tag.. pulsaqr 200ns is far better in performance…. r15 cannot even catch the smoke of p200ns… the pick up, power speed is far better than r15… more over r15 has only 17ps of power wer 200ns has 23.5bhp… so, its clear that r15 cannot even b compared to pulsar as pulsar’s performance is far far better and is of 250cc bikes segment.. so r15.. jus a waste machine with toy like fairing… real men choose the beast (200ns)

    I have a pulsar 200ns now and as quoted by many other it is one hell of a performer, but just change your tyres before churning performance out of the bike since the tyre are good but for going at 100 kmph+ they are not good enough and pray to god that there is no water on street at that speed or its game over.

    I was doing 115 kmph at Yamuna express highway and i had slight wobbling on my ns, I was driving in perfectly dry condition. No wet roads, and no it was not engine vibration or anything. The engine is just superb and the frame as well. It is tyre which is at fault. I am going change it before going 70 kmph +. I would recommend everyone having ns to do so. Its a performance bike and the stock tyres are downright risky given the superb condition of our Indian roads.

    Hello friends,

    I dont think there R15 and ns200 are debatable here. Both bikes are used for different perfomance types. I own a R15 and pretty soon i will add 2 more bikes to my collection :D one is NS200 and a cruise bike.

    Both R15 and NS200 are good at their performance type. If ppl are thinking of riding for long duration both Bikes are worst for sitting position.

    Hi,
    With the experience of rid,ing pulsar 200NS for 3 months i will tell u some important facts i noticed.

    Duke is better in sudden pick up compared to NS because of its less weight.

    Dont buy NS if ur below 178 cm height.
    even cluth play wil become tough if u have small fingers.

    rear tyre skids more for pulsar200NS. but breaking is good. rider can control the bike easily even if tyre skids(tyres are big enuf).

    gear shifting has some problems(slips) if we didnt shift as specified on manual.

    In my point of view r15 is better than 200ns ,coz anyone can drive very fast that’s not the matter the matter is how to u handle in a sudden moment if u driving very fast but u can’t stop ur bikes so next what’s happenend with u better understand to me r15 has better handling capacity than others & it’s breaking power capacity is far better than 200ns so make ur coice

    Watching all the comments above,I find just one thing. Pulsar fanboys are comparing 200cc bikes and 220cc bikes with R15,which is a 150cc bike.There is no 150cc bike better than R15 2.0,not even pulsar 150,not even Apache.
    If you really are that smart then you’ll compare your pulsar 200 with Duke 200.
    What I find funny is pulsar fanboys like to compare p220 with R15 (difference of 70cc)
    so obviously they win.Tell them to compare p220 with Kawasaki ninja 250 or Honda CbR250R,they say that difference of 30cc is there. Sad noobs.You are not riders.You are wannabes.Pathetic amateurs.Throught comments I see all pulsar fanboys are illiterate uneducated ruffians .Sad.pulsar managed to fool you by saying pulsar is the Indian bike .In this neck to neck competition companies manipulate people like you to mindlessly defend their bikes so thy more people buy idiotic pulsars.Pulsar has the worst maintenance .Worst after purchase services.Don’t be fooled.Go to the showroom,test ride instead of listening to Pulsar fanboys speak.Pulsar is good,but not great.Honda and Yamaha are the pros.
    It’s very simple :
    R15 is the best 150cc bike.
    Ninja is the best 250cc bike.

    Pulsar fanboys,go to hell.Your pulsars are
    commuters,nit sports bikes.Just because you own a pulsar doesn’t mean it’s the best.
    And to those who may call me a R15 fan ,I own a Pulsar 220cc.

  • Thinker January 30, 2013, 12:16 pm

    hi, Actually Its the money tag that creates the difference. R15 is costly, and speaking of CBR 250 or Ninja, are even costlier. Pulsar is the only brand that gives 200cc at such an affordable price. It is the fastest Indian within this price range. If u have money u can always go for the CBR or Ninja. For any bike, maintenance cost is there, but the thing is for pulsar, even that is less whereas if u see for R15, its always more. So, a bike that gives good sporty performance with less charges and cheaper price tag, its always gonna be pulsar.

Hero and yamaha are the best bike maker in india. I dont know how you become fan of a indian bike? Suzuki, yamaha and hero is the best. Others should go and manufacture bicycle.

      Go for the 220F. Many problems are being reported by NS owners. Rusting, Paint peeling off, Vibrations, Stiff suspension, electrical issues, starting problems to name a few.

    shut up idiots naked sport 200 ns is best
    as compare to r15 v2 rate is high and ns best fuel efficiency speed than r15v2
    as compare to duke ns has best fuel efficiency but duke is a quiet quicker than ns200
    ns 200 below 100000 , r15v2 is 125000 , duke 200 is 130000
    so ns 200 is best

    pulsar ns200 is the best bike i have ever ride but R15 is only good in show off for college boys but it’s nothing compared to pulser ns200 because the pickup is more and in pulsar ns 200 the horsepower is 24and in r 15 the horsepower is only 18 so i really prefer pulsar ns 200 and mostly the whole body of r 15 is fibre or plastic once you crash it somewhere you’ll get only yo bike but the bike will be in 2000 of pieces so if you crash a pulsar it’ll be a hike of a damage but it’s not look like it has been crashed at all atb fixable and in r 15 is only a part of a mask has been cracked then you’ll have to change the whole mass of the bike…. The end moral of the story pulsar ns 200 rocks sss sss

    DTSi enjines r short lived, now the big kweshion, if its shortlived then why so much of halllaa booowl about the same, as long as enjine is new it ROWKSSSSS. the next big kweshion,the money spend on these bikes make any sense at all. Vibrashion is law of nature ? it will be there as long as their is motion.

    Guys i dont know y every one tell R15 is a better bike…. wake up guys R15 is just 150 cc wit 16.8 bhp..R15 might have been smoked pulsar 180 bcoz the pulsar rider might have been in 60 -70 and no pulsarian will smoke a dirty child r15.Guys jus compare the specifications of pulsar 180 200ns and 200 and 220f with r15 and r15 can never be compared with a monster like pulsar. R15 the child the dirty bike can be easily beaten by a normal electric vehilce(Cycle)…:-D

    Raj-My boy before u comment sum thin jus check ur r15 fans then they compare r 15 to pulsar 200ns which is 50 cc high and 8 bhp ahead…. ha ha ha …..Then u shud compare r15 to access 125 ha ha ha lol :-D

    Surya- Never compare that dirty suzuki and Yamaha (Middle segment bikes) to indian market. Many people have suffered for spares like a beggers. Yamaha stopped enticer due to its worst performance and dirty handling and mileage. Wake up bajaj ruled all the companies….. All other companies are servants to bajaj… lol:-D

    Am not underestimating r15 yes r15 is a very good bike but cant be compared to a monsters like 180 200ns 200 220f.Riding or racing any bike is easy but getting out the best from the monster is a real tuf task. Yamaha is only fit for looks but not for laps….. pulsar always rocks……. Jai ho

    I own a pulsar 200 ns. I bought it a week ago. And I must say that it s a joy to ride in it. With such a tremendous power and comfort. Last day I clocked 127kmph in it. And also it’s giving me a fair mileage of 37 to 40 kmpl. 100 % value for money. Loving every bit of it.
