The motorcycle also gets a distinct ABS stickering on the front fender. ABS helps in preventing the wheel from locking up during braking hard. It thus provides better control of the bike while decelerating suddenly. The non-ABS variant of the bike costs INR 97,216, (INR 12,499 cheaper) ex-showroom Delhi. The NS200 is now the cheapest ABS offering in the country from Bajaj. The bike competes with TVS Apache RTR 200 and Yamaha FZ25 in the segment.
