Bajaj as a company is about democratising motorcycles for the masses. Ever since the entry of the Pulsar brand they have seen the sky as the limit, the close association with KTM is another shot in the arm which is helping them tap new avenues. While the Pulsars are about providing class leading performance in the street naked and faired section, the Avengers are targeted towards having affordable cruisers.
The Pulsar RS 200 has been the brand’s favourite new kid in the block. It has the perfect mixture of looks, features and performance to create a value for money package. However, a certain dealership in Bangalore has gone over enthusiastic. In fact, they possibly confused it with the KTM 390s!
Their website goes on to claim that the bike’s 200 cc mill churns out a massive 43 bhp of power and 35 Nm of torque. If that’s not all, the bike’s fuel efficiency has been rated at 175 kmpl! I am pretty sure they wanted that as the top speed, but well, why not! If that’s not all, the bike is also claimed to have WP upside down forks in the front and monoshock by the same brand in the rear!
Well, looks like somebody just copied the KTM 390’s figures and features. The moment you scroll down though, you get to see the actual specifications. But wait, even there they have devised something new which goes by the name kerb weight disc pegged at 135 kilos and kerb weight drum at 165 kg (which is incidentally the actual weight of the RS 200)!
