At a recent dealer meet in Turkey, Bajaj Auto announced two new motorcycles – 200 NS FI and 160 NS oil cooled. Both these motorcycles are expected to be launched in India next year. Now, ahead of the new motorcycles get launched, Bajaj Cambodia unit has announced the launch of limited edition Pulsar 200 NS.
The limited edition Pulsar 200 NS in Cambodia gains new livery and cosmetic updates. There are no changes in the engine specs. As far as changes made to the livery is concerned, the LE Pulsar 200 NS now comes with White body colour with red alloys and Blue colour with silver alloys. The white Pulsar also gets red accents while Blue Pulsar gets white accents. The 199.5 cc carbureted single-cylinder liquid-cooled engine produces PS and 18.3 Nm of torque. The motor is mated to a 6-speed gearbox.
Pulsar or Aprilia
In addition to this limited edition Pulsar, there is yet another 200 NS which has caught out attention. This modified Bajaj Pulsar 200 NS in Indonesia caught our attention because it tries too hard to pass as an Aprilia.
While the compact naked motorcycle is no match for the sharp looking Aprilia Tuono, one has to appreciate the modifier’s attempt at matching the aesthetics. The spruced up Pulsar adopts the silver, red and black livery that mimics Aprilia’s default color theme.
The modifier even went on to give the Pulsar 200 NS a trellis chassis like element which appears to be non-structural (it’s there only to enhance the aesthetics). However, this undertaking is not purely cosmetic. The 200 NS’ regular telescopic front fork has been replaced by a sturdy WP inverted telescopic fork.
The motorcycle also sports fatter rims and tyres, large double front discs and a custom silencer with small twin canisters. Other noteworthy enhancements include auxiliary LED lights, new handlebar grips, a sharp belly pan, new radiator shrouds and blacked out turn indicators.
