Bajaj launched the Pulsar 200 NS back in 2012. In 2015, to the surprise of many, the bike was discontinued from Indian market. The reason behind discontinuing Pulsar 200 NS from India is as unclear as Bajaj not wanting to launch the upcoming 400 cc under the Pulsar nameplate. Like why would you want to launch a new brand when you have a globally renowned Pulsar brand name. Anyways, that is a discussion for a different day.
Today we are going to talk about this brilliant mod job from Vietnam. Inspired from Kawasaki’s naked flagship, the Z1000, this Pulsar 200 NS not only wants to look like a Z1000, but also wants to ride like one.
In order to do that, the maker has rebored the engine to 350 cc (not sure how was that managed). The stock 200 cc engine on the said Pulsar delivers 23.52 PS at 9,500 rpm and 18.3 Nm at 8,000 rpm. The maker of this mod Pulsar 200 NS has not revealed the output figures.
Apart from the rebored engine, this Pulsar bike comes with a range of added equipment. Some of which includes LED headlamp, fatter 180 section rear tyre (standard comes with 130 section), brembo brake calipers, Austin Racing aftermarket exhaust system, trident logo in between the dual headlamp, restyled wind deflector, new instrument cluster, carbon fiber wrapped handlebar (no clip-ons), new levers for front brake and clutch, sharper rear section, new seats, LED taillights, rear petal disc brakes, etc.
Bajaj Pulsar 200 NS FI would delight customers if offered in India. But there is still no word about its launch here. The FI variant is presented in many countries including Turkey, Lebanon, Indonesia, Vietnam and so on.
