Bajaj Pulsar NS200 BS6 with FI has been finally launched in India. Bookings have opened at authorized dealers.

Bajaj Auto plans to start deliveries of the updated BS6-compliant version of the popular Pulsar NS200 in a few days’ time. Now, certain dealerships across the country have started accepting bookings for the same for a token amount of Rs 5,000. BS6 Bajaj Pulsar NS200 FI is priced from Rs 1.24 lakhs. This is about Rs 11,000 more than the BS4 ex-showroom price, that roughly starts at around Rs 1.13 lakh. The extra cost mainly accounts for the addition of a fuel-injection system.

In its present BS4 format, the Bajaj Pulsar NS200 makes around 23.2bhp and 18.3Nm of torque from its air/oil-cooled carburetted 199cc single-cylinder engine. The addition of an FI system might bump the figures to 24.2bhp and 18.6Nm since the Columbian-spec NS200 already features a fuel-injection system. However, to comply with stringent BS6 emission norms, the exhaust system of the upcoming Indian-spec NS200 range could be significantly restrictive. In other words, the engine could be a bit ‘choked’ and the output might even be slightly lesser than the BS4 units; like the usual case of updating to BS6 emission norms.

Besides the small updates to the power plant in a bid to make it cleaner, the 2020 Bajaj Pulsar NS200 BS6 does not sport any major changes. New colour schemes could be obvious, but a few examples of the upcoming BS6 200NS were spotted in various dealerships across the country in existing paint shades such as the White/Grey and Red/Black.

Owing to the addition of the FI system, the updated NS200 could be a bit more refined and maybe even better on fuel economy as well. It is hard to argue with the fact that the Bajaj Pulsar NS200 has a lot of fans across the country and hence, Bajaj Auto will not make any compromise on its desirability.

The 200cc motorcycle segment in the Indian automotive market has got a lot of desirable products since the category acts as a bridge between commuters and sports motorcycles. The Bajaj Pulsar NS200, which is essentially a sports commuter, primarily rivals the likes of the TVS Apache RTR 200 4V, Yamaha FZ25 and Suzuki Gixxer 250.
