Pulsar NS 200 to get tweaks before launch
Pulsar 200 NS is the next big launch from the Pune two wheeler makers. Bajaj Auto unveiled the generation next Pulsar 200NS, World’s first motorcycle to adopt Triple Spark Engine Technology in January and announced the launch would be sometime in April-May.
Bajaj plans to tweak the Pulsar NS 200 before the official launch and will try to get it right from day one.
The tweaks include:
- A bump in wattage from the 45 watt bulb on the prototype to a 55 watt bulb
- Tell-tale lights will get some enhancements for better daylight visibility
- The rear mudguard could undergo some changes with regards to the texture changing from its glossy finish to a matte black treatment
- Optional tyre choice to the consumers who want quality rubber
- Host of other improvements too that will be visible on the production ready model
The bike will go into production by end of this month
A little more than 10 years since the original Pulsar was launched, Bajaj Auto today unveiled the Next Gen Pulsar 200NS. This new Pulsar is all set to re-define Motorcycling technology and design as-much-as the original Pulsars did way back in 2001.
At the heart of the new Pulsar is its cutting-edge engine which sets new benchmarks in performance, emission and incidentally also fuel efficiency. The DTS-i (Digital Twin Spark-ignition) technology launched in 2003 marked a unique first in the history of Indian Motoring.
The new Pulsar takes this technology altogether to another level with a SOHC 4-valve Triple Spark engine controlled by an advanced Electronic Control Unit for an absolutely unmatched performance. To support this exhilarating heart-pumping performance the bike comes with liquid cooling and a six speed gear box.
The Pulsar 200NS chassis comprises a pressed steel perimeter frame and a Rectangular tube section swing arm delivering over three times the lateral stiffness of a P220 frame. These deliver outstanding high speed handling and cornering stability. The centrally located muffler and the unique gas filled Nitrox mono suspension further improve the ride and handling of the bike due to low & centralized CG position.
The Pulsar design character has evolved with the performance & dynamics. It’s become stronger, more aggressive with a street fighter stance. The look just begs you to ride it. Once astride, the sporty speedo console, triple-tree clip-ons, the signature clips and the illuminated switches evoke the design, fit and finish so far exclusively reserved for much more expensive super sports bikes. The new 200cc Pulsar is probably the most stunning sports bike in its class oozing raw muscular appeal.
