The bike now weighs 158 kg from 159.5 kg earlier. This is because of the lighter wheels retained from the Pulsar 250.
The tyres too are now fatter and addition of USD forks makes the bike look even more muscular. Engine here is same 199.5cc that puts out 24.5 bhp and 18.7 nm with 6-speed gearbox on offer. Due to less weight rider may feel a little bit performance boost on the Pulsar NS200.
