Kawasaki Bajaj Launches Snazzier Pulsar 200NS in Indonesia at 1.36 Lakh INR

by Bishakh on June 8, 2013

The inevitable has finally happened. After months of a tiring wait, Indonesian fans can finally heave a sigh of relief as Bajaj-Kawasaki rolled out the Pulsar 200 NS officially in Jakarta on June 7. But we bet there will be a few faces going green with jealousy, here on the other side of the seas!!

The Indonesian version is pretty much same from the technical point of view. It was rumored around in Indonesia that the Pulsar 200 NS might come equipped with an Electronic Fuel Injection system. However, those speculations have been put to rest with a carburetor being used on the Pulsar 200 NS.

But things get snazzier from the visual attraction point-of-view!! With newer decals on all the base colors, the Indonesian iteration of Pulsar 200 NS is a lot more eye-catchy than our Indian offering. There will be a lot of tell-tale signs of the Kawasaki influence on the Indonesian Pulsar 200 NS, in the form of a few stickers plonked here and there. Interestingly, the Ninja-Green splattered version was nowhere to be seen during the launch, but it will be there!

Could Bajaj be planning a mid-life facelift of the Indian version soon, with all those cooler decals? We had even spotted a Pulsar 200 NS on test on the Pune streets. There might be a probability, however slight it may be, that the mid-life upgrade, if done, might house a few technical tweaks as well.

The Pulsar 200 NS will retail for around 23.5 million Indonesian rupaiah, which translates to about 1.36 Lakhs INR. The costlier sticker price is due to the import procedure used for the bike. In a market where step-thrus and smaller-looking-and-nimbler motorcycles run riot, the beefier looks of the Pulsar 200 NS could be a hefty premium for the Indonesian purchasers. It will be interesting to see how the tussle between the Yamaha V-Ixion Lightning and the Pulsar 200 NS pans out!

This is indeed a nice graphic for the tank and should really work in the long run. Kawasaki has done a nice job to make the 200 NS more visually good.

I like this strategy of bajaj…first they produce a design that is very eye catchy but still can be made sizzling. When this eye catchy design begins to fade they improve it to the more sizzling design. Expect the above descripted NS to be in india after 2,3 years in india. kudos to bajaj designers!!

The fact that Kawasaki has put its name on the bike is significant. Given the fact that Bajaj never developed a twin spar frame before, is it possible that Kawasaki had a role there to play? And is the three spark gimmick (yes it is only that) a reason to distance the engine from KTM and make it possible for Kawasaki co-branding? Might as well be.

I don’t think Kawasaki had any input to the pulsar 200ns, I guess Bajaj is only marketing the product in a market which is more familiar with the Kawasaki brand name. a win-win situation for both Bajaj and Kawasaki.

Less is more. Original looks great; this devalues the bike. Don’t try and paint the flowers. I have the same objection to BLACK alloy wheels. Plain alloys look much classier and if you ask me black wheels must be planned obselescence by the manufacturers. Get a puncture (on tubed tyres) and see what the grease monkeys do to your wheels. Like every vehicle once the wheels are damaged the whole vehicle looks scruffy; and you yearn again for a new one which keeps all happy except your bank account
