Braking duties are taken care of by a single 300-mm dia Bybre disc at the front with single-channel ABS and a 230-mm dia single disc at the rear. They feel decently progressive and the brakes bite quite sharply, helping shed speed.
At the end of a day’s blast around a track, the RS 200 came across as a nice motorcycle to ride. Yes, it’s not as track-focused as some of the others on the shelves. And, yes, its looks are such that you may not like it all that much. But then it didn’t say it was the perfect motorcycle to begin with, did it? It’s got its pluses and its share of minuses, but, far more importantly, at Rs 1.18 lakh it’s a very compelling purchase proposition for someone looking for a 200-cc fully faired sport motorcycle.
