The company recently introduced another price hike for NS200, leaving the same vulnerable to buyer queries at INR 1,00,179 (ex-showroom Delhi).

Surprisingly, the brand has made no addition of equipment to the NS200. TVS Apache RTR 200 also have the same sort of price hike history but, it was lucky enough to receive slipper clutch as an addition.
Pulsar NS200 is also available in ABS equipped variant for INR 1,12,179. It rivals TVS Apache RTR 200 and Hero Xtreme 200R in its segment. Priced at INR 88,000 and carrying single-channel ABS as standard, Hero Xtreme 200R seems like a better alternative on all grounds.
