Bajaj Pulsar 200 SS more images surface from Lavasa (12 photos)
To feature twin projector headlamps with 35W capacity, the fairing of the new Pulsar 200 is very aerodynamic. The odometer is similar to that of 200 NS, and there is not much change in the cockpit section of the new Pulsar. The front tyre is in the form of EuroGrip 100 section, while the rear features a EuroGrip 130 section, both similar to the 200 NS.
Then for added safety, there is ABS, which is seen from the rings which are visible in the images. We are not sure whether this will come as standard, or optional, but optional sounds logical, as keeping ABS as standard will push the price of 200 SS very high. Another new feature is the petal disk brakes with new alloy design, which adds to the overall aggressive stance of the Pulsar 200 SS.
Nitin Aggarwal not only managed to get these images, but also had the chance to get seated on the Pulsar 200 SS. He adds that the seats are comfortable, even for the pillion, something which was not seen in the Duke 200 or the 200 NS. For the pillion, there are no grab rails, but there is support underseat. Considering the aerodynamic design, windshield and high handlebars, the new Pulsar 200 SS seems to be designed as a tourer.
On the side, you see an added exhaust to the original underbelly one. This is also available in the existing 200 NS as an added accessory or power-part. In the 200 SS, this might come as standard to add to the overall sleek design of the bike, as it will hide the out-of-place rear axle holder.
As far as engine specs is concerned, we are not sure if there is an upgrade. But considering the engine fan and radiator, there might be a tuning done for added output. If this is the case, then expect the Pulsar 200SS to deliver power in the range of 23-24 hp along with improved acceleration and riding dynamics.
