Like we said, there is absolutely no change in the specifications and the mileage. The NS 200 has been known to offer a good mix of performance and fuel average mileage.

While the front disc brake has a 280 mm rotor with a twin-calliper arrangement, the rear gets a 230 mm disc with a single-calliper setup.

Bajaj Pulsar NS200 Design
The latest iteration of NS 200 doesn’t look too different from the one that was launched way back in 2012. In its latest iteration, however, the bike gets more stylish due to the dual-paint colour schemes and stylish graphics. The NS 200 has always managed to impress us with its beefy design and a really bold exterior. The aesthetics seem to be inspired by the very loveable and instantly recognizable Honda CB1000R. While some of you might cry foul, we really don’t think it’s a bad idea because the NS200 looks just fantastic.
Several styling bits such as an engine cowl, stylish mag wheels, racebike-inspired tail cutter, LED taillamps, dual-tone paint schemes, and stylish graphics further make the bike more attractive. It is definitely among the best looking motorcycles in its segment.
