Pulsar NS200 ABS price is double the premium Suzuki charges for Gixxer SF ABS…
Executive Bajaj, an authorised Bajaj dealer in Mumbai, out of nowhere, put up an image at its Facebook page announcing the launch of Pulsar NS200 with ABS. This is where it all began and later, Bajaj shot in an official press release sharing all the information.
Bajaj has introduced their naked 200 with a single-channel ABS unit taken from the faired RS200, as expected. Single channel ABS works only on the front wheel and prevents wheel lock upon sudden braking (the biggest reason of accidents) which helps keep the motorcycle under control.
Pulsar NS200 ABS vs Non-ABS Differences
Mainly there are two differences which we can notice, obviously apart from the prices…
- Disc Size: Pulsar NS200 non-Disc variant gets a 280 mm front disc brake whereas the ABS version is equipped with a bigger 300 mm rotor. This is exactly the same case with Pulsar RS200.
- Weight: The ABS version, because of the sensors and all the added equipment weighs 2 kg more (154 kg) than the non-ABS version (152 kg).

This means that Bajaj is charging Rs 12,000 for the ABS variant. Just for reference, Suzuki has set a premium of only Rs 6000 for Gixxer SF ABS (which is also a single channel unit).
Bajaj already manufactures ABS equipped Pulsar NS200 for export markets and launching it in the domestic market was only a matter of time. However, India-spec NS continues to be carbureted (fuel injection is not on offer).
Pulsar NS200 ABS is available in all the three colours – Wild Red, Mirage White and Graphite Black. The company has already started dispatches of the ABS version to metro dealerships for now and gradually they will introduce it pan-India.
