After teasing at Facebook, updating the official website, Bajaj has shared the media release of the launch of new dual tone colours for Pulsar 200NS.
As we have informed earlier, Bajaj’s current flagship Pulsar 200NS has been given a mid-life niptuck job with the introduction of three new dual tone colours to the lineup. This also means that a few solid ones have been axed. First, let us inform you about the new additions:
- Passion Red & Ebony Black
- Saffire Blue & Ebony Black
- Metallic White & Ebony Black
It is the first time ever in a Pulsar that it has been provided a white (or a combo of one) colour option.
Apart from that, with the high demand of the solid black colour it has been retained in the lineup. So this makes the total colour offerings to four. And hence, the following three solid colours have been axed.
- Red Solid
- Blue Solid
- Yellow Solid
Yes, the yellow coloured Pulsar 200NS is no more on offer. Bajaj has also specifically mentioned that there are no changes to the technical specifications of the bike and rest of it remains exactly the same as before. The bike continues to be propelled by a 4-stroke triple spark engine with liquid cooling and a six-speed gearbox.
The engine is mounted on a Pressed Steel Perimeter Frame with a rectangular tube section swingarm. Interestingly, Bajaj shares that it has more than three times the lateral stiffness of a Pulsar 220 frame.
Initially, at casual glance, like us you may also mistake it as the same theme like the Indonesian version. However, as brought to our notice by one of our reader, Indian Dual-Tone Pulsar 200NS carries slightly different theme than its Indonesian counterpart, however, the basic concept must have been born around the same time and possibly by the same thinktank!
Indonesian Pulsar 200NS also has a dual-tone combo of yellow colour which, we feel, may also find an Indian introduction sometime later.

What is interesting for now is the snapping of two Pulsar 200NS mules along with the camouflaged upcoming Pulsar 200SS mules somewhere in Ooty yesterday (Spypics here). This might hint at the possibility of Bajaj preparing an FI/ABS loaded 200NS as well!
