Design and Outlook
This bike looks bigger than other bikes like Yamaha or KTM. The looks at the front remain controversial due to a peculiar snout-like design that seems unnecessary or without any purpose.
There has been tested on the tracks and it was found that the bike felt slightly odd at the corners. The balance of the chassis is quite good and without any complaint. The ride of the bike will be better on the city roads. The bike shouldn’t perform as good during knee-kissing tricks and turns. The bike seems to be unsuitable for the ghat roads.
The sound of the engine doesn't appear to be good at lower revs but as you rev up the engine, there is a healthy muscular beat from the exhaust. You can ride the bike comfortably at 140km/h without any noise from the body or the engine. The body and the handlebar both vibrate at high speed and it may be discomforting to some. There is a buzzing sound that can even be felt on the seats.
The motorcycle turns the corners neatly and real fast. The steering of the bike is quite responsive. It makes a lot of difference. With the default suspension of this bike, the bike would have felt a bit impossible to handle at sharp turns had it not been for the tyres that are really robust. So, that's an advantage. The ABS version of this bike really gives you a big sense of security and safety. The front wheels have the ABS system of braking. When the brakes were applied at tough angles, the bike responded well. At high-speed braking, the rear of the bike felt as if it was wobbling. It will fill you with terror sometime but it will soon go off with the time.
The Pulsar RS 200 is priced at Rs. 1.52 lakh
