Bajaj Auto has spawned a new derivative of Pulsar 200 NS, an adventure tourer model dubbed Pulsar 200 AS (Adventure Sport). This comes as a surprise as the Indian two wheeler maker never disclosed or hinted about an adventure model being in the pipeline, ever.Bajaj Pulsar 200 AS in the spy shots is a brilliant transformation of 200 NS as the fuel tank flamboyantly extrudes to the new half-fairing which bears the Pulsar 220 like head unit. The bike features dual headlamps – one projector and the other just regular multi-reflector type; with pilot lamps in both top corners. Visor is large and clear, seems to be acting as a better wind deflector like in any adventure tourer.
Judging from one of the pictures, the bike also features raised handle bar position to facilitate adventure stance and handling. But the observation is not conclusive as the shocks which are supposed to be longer seems to be of the same length as in Pulsar 200 NS.
Rest of equipment in the spied Bajaj Pulsar 200 AS including engine, radiator, wheels, tires, brakes, seats, shocks, rear fairing and the like are directly shared from 200 NS. This bike could be prepped as a rival to upcoming TVS-BMW Adventure Tourer.
Bajaj Auto, the Indian motorcycle maker, has been unveiling its proud products in places other than its home ground, mostly in Turkey (Pulsar 200 SS). Looks like they have found another market to test its products before they launch in India, if.
