Bajaj Auto today unveiled the all new Bajaj Pulsar 200 Naked Sports bike in India.
Powered by a liquid cooled 3 sparkplug 200cc 4st engine with 4 valves producing [email protected] and 18.3Nm of Torque at 8000rpm, the new Bajaj Pulsar 200NS not only marks a new chapter in the history of Pulsars and motorcycles in India, but also washes away the assumption that Bajaj Auto was planning to plonk 200 Duke’s engine into the Pulsar lineup!
Add a radical new design and chassis setup with a monoshock rear suspension (first in Pulsar lineup) and 280mm disk upfront and a 230mm at rear, and one knows that Bajaj Auto has gone all out in ensuring that the new Bajaj Pulsar 200 NS not only adds value to the existing Pulsar lineup, but takes the game one step further and shows the seriousness with which the R&D team at Bajaj Auto takes the Indian Motorcycle Market.
Coming out with products which not only support previously unused technology in the Indian market, but are also very much a VFM proposition.
Having said that, Bajaj Auto hasn’t yet divulged the pricing of Pulsar 220NS yet and is planning to officially launch the bike in April.
