      Resale value has never been a problem with Bajaj Pulsar range. And the RS200 surely is a decent product, take a test ride and you’ll know.

    We need R15 to be powered by 200 c.c engine. Please guys, have some meaning to the upgrades of the bike after 4-5 yrs of launching the version 2. If you can’t upgrade the bike which is meaning full to buy the upgraded version 3, I don’t think you will do good in the market these ongoing yrs, because you’ll have to compete with lot of other very good alternative bikes like ktm,suzuki,bajaj.. what not else. Hope you’ll come up with good one i mean a better one ..!
