Even as the Indian customers continue to wait for the long overdue Bajaj Pulsar 150 NS, the Pune-based automaker has been exporting the model to 8 countries for quite some time now. Autocar Professional reports that over 20,000 units of the 150 NS have already been shipped.
Talking to the publication, Eric Vas, President of Motorcycle Business at Bajaj Auto, confirmed that the production and export operations of the Pulsar 150 NS are on. He added that the bikes are destined to Colombia and some other Latin American countries for now. It’s reported that the compact displacement street fighter has been shipped to Mexico, Peru, Ecuador, Turkey, Finland, Thailand and the United States.
The motorcycle is being exported as CKD (Completely Knocked Down) kits where Bajaj has a local assembly facility and as SKD (Semi Knocked Down) kits to markets without Bajaj-owned assembly lines. Customer deliveries in all these export markets will follow a fixed schedule.
Colombia is learnt to be the single largest market for the motorcycle. Launched in association with Bajaj’s local partner Auteco, the Bajaj Pulsar 150 NS is on sale in the country since March 15. The motorcycle which derives its design from the Pulsar 200 NS (which is currently not on sale in India) is powered by a 149 cc single-cylinder air-cooled engine outputting an impressive 17 PS, and 13 Nm of torque when mated to a 5-speed gearbox.
The company officials have stated that they have not decided on the India launch date for the Bajaj Pulsar 150 NS yet.
