Bajaj Auto had launched the Pulsar 200 NS in India back 2012. But, due to undisclosed reasons, the manufacturer discontinued the motorcycle from India. Though on sale in export markets, the reason behind discontinuing 200 NS was always a mystery. Enthusiasts were angry.
But not any more. Bajaj Auto has finally re-launched the new Pulsar 200 NS. The 2017 Bajaj Pulsar 200 NS is now on sale across Bajaj dealerships for a starting price of INR 96,453. Sadly, only one variant is on offer, which is minus the ABS and FI. ABS is not even offered as option like Bajaj offers on the Pulsar RS200 or the Dominar 400.
In India, the new Pulsar NS200 is powered by the same 199.5 cc engine which powers the AS200. This engine is good for 23 hp and 18.3 Nm of torque. Transmission is taken care by a 6 speed unit. Kerb weight stays at 145 kgs. The 17 inch alloys are shodded with MRF NyloGrip tyres while it gets the new AHO (Always Headlamp On) feature. Three colour are on offer – Wild Red, Mirage White and Graphite Black.
One of the most preferred naked street fighters in the segment, Bajaj has updated the new 200 NS thoroughly for international market. In the international markets, not only the engine is a new 194.4 cc unit, but it also comes with FI, unlike previously where it was offered only with carburettor. In Turkey, where the bike has already been launched, 2017 Bajaj Pulsar is powered by a 194.4 cc single cylinder liquid cooled engine. This engine delivers 24.5 PS at 9500 rpm and 18.3 Nm of torque at 8000 rpm, the same as before.
Visually, the refreshed Pulsar 200 NS comes with new styling kits, along with new dual-tone color schemes, and a relocated pulsar logo. Positioned below the Pulsar RS 200. It will continue to be a cheaper alternative to the KTM Duke 200. In terms of rivalry, it will compete head on with the new Apache 200 which is priced from INR 90,015 and Yamaha FZ25 which is priced from INR 1.2 lakh.
To promote their new 2017 Pulsar NS 200, Bajaj has launched a TVC which shows sumo wrestlers racing on an empty runway on Pulsar NS 200. They are seen performing wheelies, and also riding while standing. Watch the TVC below.
