2012 Bajaj Pulsar 200 NS Launched

by Deepak on January 30, 2012

Today at a press conference in Mumbai ITC Grand Central, Bajaj has launched the Pulsar 200 NS. It has been 10 years since the launch of the original Pulsar and today’s launch is expected to go into the history of motorcycling in India. At the conference, Mr. Naren, our regular author and 2 special correspondents of BikeAdvice Mr. Amit Gavande and Mr. Pratheek Kunder are present representing BikeAdvice.

Technical Specifications

  • 200cc SOHC Engine
  • 3 Spark Plugs
  • Liquid Cooled Engine
  • 23 BHP @ 9500 RPM

  • 18.3 Nm Torque @ 8000 RPM
  • 145 KG Kerb Weight
  • 12 Litre Fuel Tank

Press Release

  • Bajaj Auto Unveils the generation next Pulsar 200NS
  • World’s first motorcycle to adopt Triple Spark Engine Technology
  • Next generation technology offers unmatched overall performance

Mumbai, 30 January 2012: 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.

Commenting on the launch, Mr. K. Srinivas, President-Motorcycles, Bajaj Auto said: “Pulsar has now celebrated a ‘Decade of Dominance’ with 10 years of leadership in the Indian performance motorcycle market. These sporty iconic motorcycles have been a testimony to the company’s engineering prowess. The Pulsar 200 NS showcases next leap in technology and design and will set the standard for others to follow.

We believe that 2012-13 will be an exciting period where Bajaj Auto will excite customers both here and abroad,” Mr. Srinivas added.

The Pulsar 200NS will be commercially launched beginning next Fiscal.

yogesh January 30, 2012 at 3:17 pm

I think, Mr. Bajaj understood that they are nowhere in 150 CC Segment so that he is trying his luck in 200 CC segment. I must say ‘best of luck’ to him. LOL


Ayan February 4, 2012 at 12:37 pm

I wonder if you are an earthworm or a human?;p do you stay under the ground, so as to make a stupid comment like that?


Arun March 16, 2012 at 3:05 pm

dude are u nuts….are u in some remote village where only cycles run ? bajaj pulsar 150 cc is the segment leader ever since it was launched….no other bike has got its spot.


Sarav January 30, 2012 at 3:27 pm

Looks awesome !!!! Great job by Bajaj .


Sangram January 30, 2012 at 3:27 pm

Awesome Pictures !!!
It is truly an Indian Superbike…

Jayant N January 30, 2012 at 3:28 pm

Awesome …. love this bike …. This will beat FZ in looks for sure …. good job Bajaj team


Parthiban January 30, 2012 at 3:31 pm

Can anyone explain the concept of exhaust system in this model.


Sheik January 30, 2012 at 3:34 pm

I want to be the first owner of this big machine


5az January 30, 2012 at 3:37 pm

It looks Dashing man.. I love it.


Kumar Abhishek January 30, 2012 at 3:38 pm

The bikes seems low …May be bigger tyres and a larger fuel tank would have made this beauty a beast ..
Looking fwd to it
Kudos Bajaj


Ashwin January 30, 2012 at 3:39 pm

Looks Awesome. . . .!!!!!!!!
HATS off to BAJAJ. ..


Vimal Raju January 30, 2012 at 3:40 pm

But somebody here lead all of us to believe it would be a 220..! Anyway let the 200 set the stage for the big bro. The specs seems nice. 23 horses and some serious torque from an apparently thoroughly reworked engine. Prima facie the design and built quality are way up than the present versions. May be the Austrian connection has helped a lot. I am testing one of those the moment it arrives at the dealer’s. May be i can strike a deal for my veteran 220 S too. :-)


Samar January 30, 2012 at 3:44 pm

Hell Yeah!!
The much awaited Pulsar after discontinuation of old 200…


Rahul January 30, 2012 at 3:45 pm

I just hope KTM and Pulsar NS do not go the TATA and FIAT way


Pankaj January 30, 2012 at 3:45 pm

looks awesome !!


krazee January 30, 2012 at 3:48 pm

Coool…. :twothumbup


Jeskoneng January 30, 2012 at 3:57 pm

when will be the launching of the 220cc version ?


vivek venkoban January 30, 2012 at 3:58 pm

the nitrox charged monoshock is already in impulse… Not a unique feature… Check it out


ankit September 9, 2012 at 10:44 pm

Abe impulse jaisi cheap kabaade ko iske sath compare kar raha hai..mar jaa,abe jungli hai kya


midhun January 30, 2012 at 3:58 pm

i think fz looks better than this


Sangeet January 30, 2012 at 4:00 pm

Wow Bajaj,

Very nice Bike…It will rock…..Definitely male….


true January 30, 2012 at 4:09 pm

The tyres and disc brakes look good and the bike too, but the headlight looks bad. The bike looks small too. It is based on the KTM engine surely.

But 3 spark plugs, thats crazy. So, will next level be 4 spark plugs? Is that called new technology? Thats Funny.

But surely pricing will be competitive from bajaj.


true January 30, 2012 at 4:10 pm

The NS suffix indicates a faired version could also follow soon.


gokul January 30, 2012 at 4:12 pm

looks good……but looks like an altered bike though…..


slowpoison January 30, 2012 at 4:18 pm

cool bike but expected that bajaj will modify all pulsar series


pkd January 30, 2012 at 4:39 pm

it doesnt even have ABS.. a needed safety for 23BHP engine.. and claimed mileage is 58Kmpl., which the 125cc is also not giving..


sathish January 30, 2012 at 4:45 pm

i want to know what’s the on road prise


Anant Singhal January 30, 2012 at 5:05 pm

Love how this one looks !


Hemant January 30, 2012 at 5:06 pm

What happened to Pulsar 220?? Are they going to launch it or there is more delay?


Vikas Maan January 30, 2012 at 5:24 pm

That’s the Bike what Indian market need


mosin January 30, 2012 at 5:26 pm

Killer Bike ………… watch out for this everynone ,,,,


Himanshu January 30, 2012 at 5:37 pm

Its another beauty with brain on road …Its damn good…


Nagarajan January 30, 2012 at 6:09 pm

It’s look like Bajaj Pulsar 135cc bike…


Abhijeet Desai January 30, 2012 at 6:25 pm

Pulsar will be Pulsar boys…


Killer Rider January 30, 2012 at 7:17 pm

i cant figure out where the silencer is…does anybody know?????


R Sai Srinivas January 30, 2012 at 7:59 pm

After elections in 5 states, petrol will be Rs.100 per litre. No point in buying this category of bikes
which deliver poor mileage


Manash April 18, 2012 at 4:08 pm

No matter wat will be the price of petrol….
But I jst loved it… PULSAR……


Nikhil January 30, 2012 at 8:05 pm

itz awesome…. nw i think so dat pusar 2012 version 200 NS should launch a pre booking as done for tata nano;] but, as the matter of fact this bike is impessive, great looks and a legendary tag of “BAJAJ PULSAR”.
awaited most….


crazyavs January 30, 2012 at 8:43 pm

it looks like Honda Hornet from the front and fuel tank design…


tehempton behram January 30, 2012 at 8:49 pm

seems too good to be true, even a guy like me who was attracted to Honda now find myself talking into giving it a test ride to see whether its as good as it looks, unbelievable too.


vijay bhuyan January 30, 2012 at 9:01 pm

bajaj should get rid of the center stand, its spoiling the sporty look….


musharraf khan January 30, 2012 at 9:07 pm

Hero bike number one all world.


bhanu January 30, 2012 at 10:07 pm

batter then old model pulsar200


Syed January 30, 2012 at 10:07 pm

Wow gr8 looks. I should search a buyer fr my zmr.


Clayton January 31, 2012 at 12:39 am

Bajaj is a copy cat.They’ve taken ‘Inspiration’ from Yamaha FZ, KTM Duke,and some design cues are straight from Italian motorcycles.The Pulsar was a disease,which unfortunately spread all over.Rubbish cycles,Bajaj is not worth even considering.


Don January 31, 2012 at 5:09 pm

He is absolutely right.the bike is good and loaded with features,but i dont believe in the engine and build quality of bajaj bikes.mainly pulsar bikes and the design is also copied from fz,cb1000 etc


prakash January 31, 2012 at 12:39 am

Holy S**T!!! Look at it man!! I dont mind whether it has been copied from other so called GOOD BIKES, I LOVE IT!! IT IS ASTOUNDING!! Well done Bajaj.


SALIM JAFFER January 31, 2012 at 12:49 am



kain January 31, 2012 at 1:53 am

Vaibhav Chauhan January 31, 2012 at 6:05 pm

saim February 1, 2012 at 9:12 pm

Bajaj launch bad bike so stupid company but impulse good bike of road its rockingggg


soumen February 3, 2012 at 1:16 pm

super naked bike, it has the pulsy street feel……………….
i love it.


NITIN February 3, 2012 at 2:21 pm

i think many here are compairing the bike with the 250 CC bikes, i think bajaj wins in a way. Why 200 CC bike is compared to the bikes of higher CC. Many here commented abt the bike but they dont even know where is the exhaust is so what have they seen befoe commenting. I think they envy the brand as they dont have one. 200NS IS NOT ONLY “DEFINITLY MALE” I WOULD SAY “DEFINITLY STREET FIGHTER”


kishore February 3, 2012 at 6:58 pm

sexy bike, real competition for impulse, not gonna miss this


Ikhwan February 3, 2012 at 11:35 pm

I hope pulsar 200 NS as soon as posible enter in indonesia market, we waiting that, hope so

Benz May 4, 2012 at 11:03 pm

bajaj sud think about ugrading da luks of its tyres. Those tyres really don’t look sporty. For instance, fz’s tyres got far more better luks than da bajaj’s.
Bajaj! Get a real sporty tyres for your bikes.


vignesh May 6, 2012 at 11:42 am

this bike looks great. i booked this bike yesterday in pondicherry. i ll get this bike within 30days.


Manu May 18, 2012 at 10:55 am

This bike definitely looks good. But there is no sense in arguing whether its better or worse unless we get our hands on one of theses machines. It will be a great bargain at the price they say they plan to launch i.e. less than 1 lakh. But then again if they have rid themselves of those small technical glitches which bajaj is o so famous for i think it will definitely outrun the yamahas tvs’s and honda’s. untill then we jus have to watch the r15s fz’s n cbr’s blow past us in great velocities.


sravankumar May 22, 2012 at 9:51 am

Mr, Bajaj we are very much impressed with the new PULSAR 200 , i am user of pulsar 150dtsi, since 7 years it is a wonderful bike, I am sure the new launch will be more improved technology i wish you and the team all the best for the new launch, keep updating with new improved version.
