Bajaj Pulsar RS200 production to be more than doubled
Bajaj Pulsar RS200 was initially made available in 30 select cities and the company has now expanded it to 56 cities. Nation-wide sales is limited due to production constraints and Bajaj is all set to more than double its RS200 production capacity at its Chakan plant to meet the raising demand.
As of now, the Pune-based automaker manages to produce 1,700 units of RS200 every month. Eric Vas, president of Motorcycle Business, Bajaj Auto Ltd., has announced that the output capacity of RS200 will be increased to 4,000 units by August. This move would help Bajaj to make the motorcycle available in more parts of the country.
RS200 is powered by a fuel-injected version of 200 NS’ 199.5 cc liquid-cooled single-cylinder engine. The motor produces 24.5 PS and 18.6 Nm of torque when mated to a 6-speed gearbox.
The bike is available in two variants with the top-end trim offering single channel ABS for an additional cost of INR 12,000. Recently, Mr. Vas revealed that out of over 13,000 bookings received so far, roughly 50% of the customers preferred the ABS variant.
Increased production of Bajaj Pulsar RS200 is set to reduce the waiting period and increase the monthly sales volume.
