Which bike is better for long drive and city rides – KTM 200 Duke or Bajaj Pulsar AS200? Does KTM service network gives enough service as well as (parts available)? What about after-sale service?
Pulsar AS200 would be better option. Reasons 1. Soft suspension as compared to duke (handles bad roads effectively) 2. Windscreen (protection from wind blast at high speed) 3. Projector Headlamp (Better Night visibility) 4. Longer pillion seat (KTM's pillion seat is very short) 5. Upright riding position (Best for touring) KTM is best for short distance city riding.
KTM is the Best
Bajaj Pulsar AS200 is a better bike in terms of daily riding on highways and city rides as the seating position on the Pulsar is quiet easy than that of the Duke 200. Even AS200 provides wind blast protection with its long visor and the projector lamp makes it easy to ride even at the night time. The AS200 generates only 1 less BHP than the Duke and is a value for money product for those who ride very often. KTM is also handled by Bajaj Autos and the service network is quiet wide.
