Bajaj Pulsar 200 SS and Hero Karizma in Lavasa

Spotted earlier in Lavasa and Mumbai-Goa highway, the new Pulsar 200, probably to be named 200 SS, was once again spotted testing on the twisty roads of Lavasa near Pune. Apart from this, the bike was also spotted in Ooty, along with it’s sibling, Pulsar 200 NS.

Bajaj 200 SS will come in with a stocky exhaust situated on its right unlike that seen on the 200 NS variant. Trafficators are much the same as evident on Duke, while the instrument cluster will feature tall clip-on bars and large RPM meter with a digital speedo, as is seen on Pulsar 200 NS.

Spy pics also reveal that the 200 SS will come in with steel braided brake hoses, windscreen to reduce wind drag and will be fitted with safety features to include Anti Lock Braking System and twin projector headlamps.

No engine details are officially available, but expect it to be similar to that of Pulsar 200NS, which features a four valve, four stroke, single cylinder 200cc engine mated to a six speed gearbox. Peak power stands at 23.5 ps. To compete with the likes of Yamaha R15 V2.0, New Hero Karizma R and Honda CBR150R, the new  Bajaj 200SS is expected to be priced at around INR 1.10 lakhs which will be marginally higher than its 200NS counterpart. The upcoming Bajaj Pulsar SS might go on display at 2014 Auto Expo in Delhi in February 2014, after which it will be launched across the country.
