This Bajaj Pulsar RS200 Dark Knight modification job from Bhubaneswar shows how you can spruce up your steed significantly without burning a hole in your wallet. The modification involves new paint job, stickers, and seats.
The Pulsar RS200 Dark Knight sports orange alloy wheels and the stock decals get stripped off. The split seats get covers with interesting patterns.
The fairing cowl above the headlamps features faux carbon fibre accent which enhances the sporty appeal. Rest of the elements continue without any enhancements. The modifier has also embedded two additional LED lights in the headlight cluster. The entire modification job costs around INR 3,500.
Speaking to the owner of the bike, Shiv, this is what he told to Rushlane – “Changes are done only with painting the body with matte black and the wheels with orange. And vinyls are added to visor, tank and back. And I have added Eagle eye led at the bottom of headlights to work as drl. For painting it costed me Rs 2500. For fitting the parts it cost me rs 1000. Eagle eye cost me rs 300. Vinyl cost me rs 200. So in total it’s around 4000. What inspired me, well I always loved the colour black. But at the time of purchase it was not available as only two colors were there i.e yellow n red. I decided to give a matte look because for me it looks more mean. And I tried to get the wheels in golden colour but ended of with orange. So here it is . You are seeing the result. I hope u like it.”
The Pulsar RS200 which is the most powerful Bajaj motorcycle (until the Pulsar CS400 arrives) has been a brisk seller right from the beginning. The motorcycle quickly became a modifier’s delight and we have come across several examples which were tastefully spruced up. A good number of Bajaj showrooms across the country offer the option of custom color themes for customers who want their rides to be unique.
