Bajaj Pulsar RS200 or Yamaha Fazer 25?
Fazer 25 has a 249cc, single-cylinder, fuel injected air/oil-cooled engine with a two-valve head. Its power and torque are 20.69 BHP and 20 Nm. The engine carries a five-speed gearbox. Pulsar RS200 has a 199.5cc, single-cylinder, liquid cooling and fuel injection engine which uses a four-valve head with SOHC layout and produces more power than the Fazer at 24.5 BHP. Fazer is offering stronger bottom end performance which is enjoyable in urban conditions, while the more powerful Pulsar with its sixth gear has better highway performance. Yamaha Fazer 25 is longer, wider and taller than the RS200 and also boasts a longer wheelbase. Despite this, Fazer 25 weighs a good 11kg less than the Pulsar but Yamaha still doesn’t offer the option of ABS. RS200 can be purchased with single-channel ABS for an additional Rs 12,000. The price range of both bikes is almost in the same segment as Pulsar is priced around INR 1,21,800 and Yamaha Fazer price is INR 1,29,335. Fazer 25 promises a premium feel and exceptional reliability that get only from all of Yamaha’s products.
