You’ve been considering upgrading to a new bike and have narrowed your search down to either the Yamaha MT 15 V2 or the Bajaj Pulsar NS200, but you can’t decide which one to get! Each bike has its own strengths and weaknesses, so it’s hard to know which one will be the better fit for you. The easiest way to make up your mind is to take them out on test drives and see how they compare the Bajaj bikes and TVS bikes.
Power and Performance
The power and performance of the two bikes are quite similar, with a few exceptions. For instance, the Bajaj Pulsar NS200 has a stronger engine compared to the Yamaha MT 15 V2. The NS200 also has a lower gear ratio in its transmission system which makes it better at climbing hills or going up gradients. It also has higher ground clearance than the MT 15 V2 so it’s less likely to get damaged by potholes or other obstacles on the road.
The only way to really know which bike is better for you would be to test ride both of them and see what feels more comfortable. Remember that these are just my opinions and you should take your own into consideration before making a final decision. I think if you’re looking for something affordable and easy to maintain, the Yamaha MT 15 V2 may be right for you. However, if budget isn’t an issue and you want something powerful but not too flashy then I would recommend the Bajaj Pulsar NS200.
Both bikes are great options, but you should consider your budget and personal needs before making a final decision. The Bajaj Pulsar NS200 price starts at Rs. 1.34 Lakh and 1 variant. The Yamaha MT 15 V2 price starts at Rs. 1.63 Lakh and available in 3 variants. If you want to go faster on the highway, get more power in the city, or think that your bike will be stolen more often than the Bajaj Pulsar NS200 might be a better option because it has two engine sizes available – 150 cc and 180 cc – whereas the Yamaha has one engine size only of 150cc.
