Bajaj Pulsar RS 200 Vs Rivals: Comparisons

CBR 250 Fuel Tank # Fuel Tank Capacity and Weight

The CBR 250 and Bajaj RS 200 come with 13 liters of fuel tank capacity. On the other hand, the KTM has a 9.5 liter tank which is comparatively much lesser than the other two. The KTM weighs the least here with a total kerb weight of 154 Kgs and the other two are around 165 and 167Kgs respectively. With weighing low, the KTM has good power to weight ratio too.

Pulsar Brakes # Dimensions and Brakes

Along with the big engine around here, the CBR 250 comes with the longest and the tallest frame also. Among the three bikes, the Pulsar RS 200 has a wider frame and the KTM has its own oomph factor to be maintained here with its standout design.

So, when we talk about brakes here, each motorcycle has its own unique disks with different dimensions. The CBR 250 is equipped with a 296mm front disc and a 220 mm rear disc set up with ABS on it.

The Bajaj here gets ABS on its brakes too but is fitted with a much bigger 300 mm petal disc on the front and 230 mm rear disc too. But the KTM on the other hand provides no ABS on the RC 200’s front 280 mm and rear 230 mm discs.      

Bajaj Pulsar RS 200# Price

The price is biggest battle for the bikes here. The Bajaj’s RS 200 is the cheapest with a price tag of 1.18 lakh (Ex-showroom, Delhi) for the non-ABS version and 1.30 lakh with the ABS. This is would be great option for the buyers who look for a sports bike which is much lesser aggressive than the KTM.

But if you are specifically looking for the RC 200 from KTM, it would cost you a bit more than the Pulsar at 1.77 lakh. But the oldest in the market is the Honda CBR 250 here, with a much higher price tag of 1.88 lakh.
