  • Bajaj Pulsar 200RS
  • Yamaha Fz25

Bajaj Pulsar RS200

Bajaj, earlier this year introduced a new 200cc sports bike called the Pulsar RS200. The bike was an elder sibling of the famous Bajaj Pulsar 200NS and Pulsar 200AS. The bike came in with an attractive body and was eye pleasing. Even though it came with the same 200cc engine as the pulsar 200ns, it has a unique design and an improved body which gives it an edge over its other siblings. The specifications of the bike are as follows-

Engine199.5 cc, 4-stroke, SOHC, 4 valve
Max. Power24.1 BHP at 9,750 RPM
Peak Torque18.6 Nm at 8,000 RPM
Transmission6-Speed Manual
Front SuspensionTelescopic Forks

Now let’s talk about its speed, the bike comes with a 199.5cc single-cylinder 4-valve engine. This engine outputs 24.1 BHP and 18.6 Nm. For top speed, this bike can reach a top-speed of 140.8 kmph and can reach 0-100 in about 9.9 seconds.

Yamaha FZ25

Yamaha recently launched its 250cc FZ25. Its looks are aggressive and something unique in this price bracket. The 250cc engine is a rare find in this price segment and Yamaha kept a cheap price for this bike keeping in mind its competition from the likes of Bajaj, KTM and others. The Fz25 is an elder sibling to the Fz16 and is priced close to the R15. The specifications of this bike are as follows-

SpecsYamaha FZ25
Engine249cc
No. of Cylinders1
Max. Power20.9 PS @ 8000 rpm
Peak Torque20 Nm @ 6000 rpm
Fuel InjectionYes
Gearbox5-speed Manual
Wet Weight148 KGs

Now it’s time to discuss this beast’s speed, the bike comes with a 249cc single-cylinder engine. It also has a fuel injection system which benefits this bike a lot. This bike dumped a 6-speed gearbox for a 5-speed one which was a little surprising. The Fz25 can reach a top speed of 134kmph and can go 0-100 in 8.5 seconds.

Bajaj Pulsar 200NS

Bajaj Pulsar 200NS which was initially launched in 2015 experienced a facelift recently. It has been one of the best selling pulsars of all time due to its sporty looks and masculine overall appeal. The 200NS is so popular that a special biker group was formed just to express the love for this bike. Despite being a gold digger for Bajaj, Pulsar 200NS has also been an amazing bike overall. The specifications of the new 2017 Pulsar 200NS are-

Engine199.5 cc, 4-stroke, SOHC, 4 valve
Max. Power23.52 PS
Peak Torque18.3 Nm
Transmission6-Speed Manual
Front SuspensionTelescopic Forks
Rear SuspensionMono-suspension
ABSYes (Optional)
Wheelbase1363 mm

Being the cheapest bike in this category doesn’t mean that this beast falls short in the speed department. The Pulsar 200NS falls just a little short in the speed department with the top speed of 136kmph and 0-100 in 10 seconds. Being the cheapest bike in this category doesn’t mean that this beast falls short in the speed department. The Pulsar 200NS falls just a little short in the speed department with the top speed of 136kmph and 0-100 in 10 seconds.

Verdict for 1 lakh to 1.25 lakh segment– The one bike that stands out in this segment is Pulsar 200RS with its 140.8kmph top speed. Even though, Yamaha Fz25 has a higher capacity engine at 249cc it only outshines the pulsar in 0-100. For the budget conscious, the pulsar 200ns is still the best pick in this segment.

Fastest bikes Under 2 Lakh Rupees – 1.25 lakh to 1.5 lakh category

KTM Duke 200

KTM recently launched their latest iteration of the Duke 200 which now meets BS-IV norms. It has new graphics paired with a powerful engine and sharp handling. The best part about the latest iteration is that its price has remained unaffected. The specifications of this bike are-

For top speed, the new Duke can reach a top speed of 138kmph and can go 0-100 in about 9.2 seconds. It’s a little less than its competitors but considering the overall package that the Duke offers, it’s a worthy contender.

Verdict for 1.25 lakh to 1.5 lakh segment-
For this price bracket, the winner is undoubtedly the Dominar 400 with its beefy 373cc engine and a top speed of 156kmph. The Fazer 25 is also a worthy contender considering that it only falls short a little bit. We would recommend the Duke only to the die-hard KTM fans.

KTM RC 200

The 2017 KTM RC 200 was revealed late last year. It came in with some minor design changes and some extra features. The main aspects of the bike like the engine specifications remain unchanged.

The top speed for the sporty beast is 140 kmph and it can reach 100 knots in about 9.3 seconds. The only way this bike steals the show is in the looks department.

Royal Enfield Classic 500       

The list of fastest bikes under 2 lakh rupees is incomplete without this wild card. The Royal Enfield is a little sluggish in the speed department than all its competitors but the 500 classic is a worthy contender and is the people’s favourite.  The specifications of Royal Enfield Classic 500 are-

Engine499cc, single-cylinder
Maximum Power27.2 BHP @ 5250 RPM
Peak Torque41.3 Nm @ 4000 RPM
Transmission5-speed Manual
SuspensionTelescopic Forks (Front), Twin Shock Absorbers (Rear)
BrakesDisc (Front), Drum (Rear)

The Royal Enfield Classic 500 has a top speed of 130kmph and can go 0-100 in about 10 seconds. The classic 500 lags behind but the comfort and feeling of riding one makes everything acceptable.

Verdict for 1.5 lakh to 1.75 lakh segment-

KTM RC 200 destroys the Royal Enfield Classic 500 when it comes to speed but the classic has a fan base that the duke might never have.  In our recommendation, this segment has a little to offer and one should either pool in more money to get a better bike or one can spend less to buy a better option.

KTM Duke 250

The 250cc version of the popular Duke series from KTM was launched recently in India. It was priced between its 2 siblings- the KTM Duke 200 and the Duke 390. The stunning naked body design is a showstopper and has a lot going under the chassis for amazing performance.

The 250 Duke churns out a top speed of 152kmph and can go 0-100 in 8.6 seconds. This is the bike to consider if you want to swoosh your way out on the highway.

DSK Benelli TNT 25

The last recommendation for our fastest bikes under 2 lakh rupees is the DSK Benelli TNT 25. This bike looks similar to KTM Duke 200, but it has a powerful 249cc engine that performs really well. This bike comes from one of the oldest bike manufacturers in the world and its specifications are decent enough to compete in the dynamic bike market of India. The specifications of this bike are-

Engine Displacement249cc
Power28.16BHP  @ 9800 rpm
Torque21.61 Nm @ 8000 rpm
Transmission6-speed
SuspensionFront – USD Telescopic forks

Rear- WP Monoshock

Rear – 220 mm Disc

 

The top speed for this bike is 145kmph and it can go 0-100 in about 10 seconds. The Benelli TNT 25 lags behind its competitors in a lot of aspects but it compensates everything in the comfort department.

Verdict for 1.75 lakh to 2 lakh segment-

The Mahindra Mojo out-shines every bike in this category followed by the Duke 250. If you want the best bike in this segment, you can opt in for either of the two (Mojo and Duke 250). The DSK Benelli TNT 25 is still worth considering for all the speed lovers out there.
