Bike enthusiasts can look forward to Bajaj introducing a bigger engine Pulsar soon as the company is working on a 350cc engine Pulsar two wheeler that they would start selling in 2013.
Speaking more on the technology of Pulsar 200 NS, Bajaj says, “The 4-valve engine facilitates induction of more quantity of charge (air-fuel mixture) and complete evacuation of all burnt gases. This results in increased engine performance – power, throttle response and pick-up at all engine speeds. 4-valve engines can be revved to much higher RPMs, without any engine strain, allowing the rider to experience superior performance.”
“The high performance Pulsar 200NS engine is kept cooled using liquid coolant, which is better at heat dispension as compared to an air cooled engine. Liquid cooling ensures there is no power fading due to overheating and results in longer engine life and the coolant provides for a muffling effect which smoothens engine noises even at high RPMs. The smooth shifting 6-speed gearbox is perfectly mated to the powerful 4 valve, triple spark, 200cc engine ensuring optimal use of the wider range of power delivery.”
As of now, Bajaj is working on a Pulsar 200 SS (Super Sport) variant which will be priced around Rs 5,000 to Rs 7,000 more than the 200 NS (Naked Sport) variant. The only difference between Pulsar 200 NS and Pulsar 200 SS will be in the front look. Pulsar 200 SS will sport a full front fairing. The image above is an artist’s impression of the Pulsar 200 SS.
