The muscular Naked Series Bajaj Pulsar 200 is back in action and this time, with a bang. It is all set to give competitors a run for their money. Bajaj Auto has launched the bike with an updated engine that meets the new Bharat Stage IV emission norms. It has an upgraded automatic headlamp on AHO function. This motorcycle is tweaked with some minor changes from its earlier version named Pulsar NS200. The latter was discontinued in 2015 owing to some complaints and issues. Now, the company has re-launched it with improved features and functions. It is anticipating tapping the entry-level market that has witnessed a steep growth of over 50% in the last one year.
Here’s a Pulsar 200NS review:
This adrenaline-pumping beast from Bajaj is all about riding in a stealth mode. There are some new colours and decals added to spruce up its styling. The new colours options are Mirage White, Wild Red, and Graphite Black. The lines and angles are immaculately designed with panache. The tank has a muscular design and there is a chiselled tail section. The headlamps are beautiful and there is a Macho feel in the bike’s tank shrouds. It reflects the appeal of a streetfighter in its looks. The paint scheme has been refurbished with matte and glossy finishes. The split seats are designed for more comfort.
The Ride and Handling:
It offers an engaging ride. It has pressed steel chassis carrying a stiff perimeter frame and a box section swing arm. There are slip on handle bars and raised footpegs for an upright riding position. The contours in the fuel tank will provide better tucking for the legs.
The engine of this bike is refined and robust. The clutch is made lighter and gearshifts are way smoother than the previous version. It offers balanced weight distribution and a low centre of gravity for better grip and control. The bike is fitted with a 199.5cc liquid cooled carburetted engine that is tuned for a mid-range mumble. The brakes and suspension are carried forward from its predecessor. There are 230mm rear discs and 280mm front discs to give a nice punch to the bike. The Pulsar 200 NS review is incomplete without mentioning its poise added by MRF Zapper tyres.
You can pre-book this amazing bike at the select Bajaj showrooms with an advance token of Rs. 1000. The ex-showroom price of the motorcycle in Delhi is Rs. 96,453.
Pulsar 200 NS is facing a stiff competition from TVS Apache RTR 200 4V and Austrian KTM Duke 200. However, Pulsar has a fresh appeal added to its demeanour.
With its muscular looks and robust features, this bike offers the best value for your money in the entry-level segment.
