FZ25 vs Apache 200 vs Pulsar 220 vs Pulsar NS200 vs Duke 200 Design

All motorcycles are fresh of the line and have had upgrades. However, for the KTM and Pulsar , which are doing rounds since 2012 still do a good job of attracting masses. They have had their share of cosmetic upgrades very recently and stand out till date thanks to new decals and paint scheme. While KTM is a stripped out road legal motorcycle, the Pulsar gets all muscular with the tank and slim headlights which is now a standard affair in today’s quarter litre naked motorcycle.

Apache 200 is very fresh and looks just right with the a very stunning design in all thanks to a futuristic headlight and tail-lamp along with large tank shrouds and impressive build quality. The FZ25 when compared to all them does look just right and very Yamaha. The MT inspired headlamps, the RTR 200 reminiscent tail-lamps are pure coincidence we guess. The large tank which is well sculpted and along with a good sporty stance which is dynamic in every way allures riders to it. Pulsar 220, the oldest bike here has a half fairing and a musuclar long tail design which seems to be ageing well and still looks best in black despite many color options on offer.
