Riding in wet requires mastery and there are no two ways about it. And cornering with your knee down on an extremely wet and slippery surface requires sheer mastery plus great courage. This daredevil rider astride a Bajaj Pulsar 200 NS seems to have both in abundance.
The video shared by Legendary Motorcycles Facebook page is an example of deft bike control and concentration. For starters, we are glad that the rider is fully geared and is performing this stunt in what at least appears to be a semi controlled environment.
He traverses a figure of 8 within neatly arranged traffic cones as it rains heavily. The rider clearly places immense trust on the motorcycle’s rubbers – something which is hard to do for many of us. It’s unclear whether the tyres are stock are upgraded but we are pretty amazed by the wet grip he manages to extract from his Indian compact naked motorcycle. The way the rider settles into a perfect rhythm with remarkable consistence in every lap is laudable.

It’s unclear if the video was shot in India or abroad. The Pulsar 200 NS, whose production is temporarily pushed to the back burner in order to clear up space of Pulsar RS 200, has been selling in several international markets.
The street fighter is powered by a 199.5 cc single-cylinder liquid-cooled engine which produces 23.52 PS and 18.3 Nm of torque when mated to a 6-speed transmission. For some international markets, the motorcyle is equipped with electronic fuel injection system which produces marginally higher power output.
