Eric Vas, president of motorcycle business, Bajaj Auto, has revealed that roughly 50% of customers who have booked Bajaj Pulsar RS200 preferred ABS variant. The fastest and most expensive Pulsar ever has registered such strong books even though it’s currently being sold only in select regions (17 cities).
While export-spec Pulsar RS200 are equipped with dual channel ABS system, top-end Indian model makes do with single-channel ABS (governs only front wheel). ABS variant is dearer than base variant by INR 12,000. The Race Sports Pulsar is also equipped with dual projector headlamps, LED pilot lamps, clip-on handlebar and two-piece taillight.
RS200 derived its 199.5 cc single-cylinder liquid-cooled engine which adopts fuel-injection system to produce 24.5 PS at 9,750 rpm and 18.6 Nm of torque at 8,000 rpm. The engine is paired to a 6-speed transmission.
Bajaj is also working on a flagship variant of the fully faired Pulsar with KTM Duke 390’s 372.3 cc single-cylinder liquid-cooled engine which would be introduced within this fiscal. The brand is also working on creating a Cruising Sports segment. CS400 concept which was showcased at Auto Expo 2012 gives us a basic idea on what to expect.
