2017 Pulsar NS200 accident pics & an appeal to always wear a helmet…

At our Facebook page, one of our reader Ankit Jhawar has shared a couple of pictures of a brand new 2017 red/grey Pulsar NS200 informing us that it met with an accident just after delivery.

The crash took place in West Bengal near Bhutan border and he adds that the rider (and probably the pillion as well) is in serious condition. What caused the accident is not known.

Looking at the condition of the motorcycle, it appears to be a high speed head on collision – the front wheel has come out, the front forks are bent, coolant and other liquids are all over the place and the clip-ons are also shattered into multiple pieces.

Though there is a helmet visible in the pics, but it is not known if the rider was wearing one.

Nonetheless, through such kind of accident pics, where you and I are not involved thankfully, my motive is to impart a sense of fear – a fear of ‘what can happen’ if I am NOT wearing helmets. Let us all take a deep breath and pledge to never ride a motorcycle (even if it is a low-power 100 cc) without a helmet! Remember, accidents do not announce their arrival and only a second of mis-judgement can lead to permanent disasters!

Helmets do not save us from accidents but they prevent severe injuries specially to the important and the most vulnerable part of our body – our head!

Let me also add that do not be a miser in purchasing a lid for yourself. Spend good money and buy yourself a quality helmet – preferably DOT and SNELL approved! Also to let you know – decent/good quality helmets start at around Rs 4000-5000 which means all your Rs 1000-2000 helmets are worthless and may not prevent your skull upon an unfortunate accident!

    My point is Only helmet can’t save life.
    under such condition we need to save entire body parts
    So if someone is investing 1lac + for a bike he/she can also invest 20 25k for riding gears.
    riding gear from Head to toe-
    Helmet + Jacket + Gloves + Knee shin protector or riding pant + Good quality shoes if not riding boots

      I want Jackets from Alpinestars and Helmets from LS2/AXOR but ironically both don’t provide anything for shorter riders, I want small size helmets and Jackets but they are available in only Large and XX large size.

      but we are using bikes for daily commute. do you think wearing all gears for office. just asking. #NoOffense

        Helmet Jacket & gloves can be used for daily office if distance is above 20kms or so..
        trust me apart frm red signals you won’t face any issue on jackets that too only during summers . in addition atleast office shirt is protected from dust if you are riding in dusty condition 😀
        and for gloves yes coz major or minor crash we generally use our hand to balance our self and balancing whole body weight with naked hands even at speed of 50kmph will be painful
        & by looking pictures we can imagine the speed of bikes 🙂 under such riding condition yes if geared up its good.
        however these are illegal speeds under city riding condition 😊😊

    bikes crash everyday, is this youtube or a post just to disrepute pulsar ? a big site should refrain from posting stuff like this, here thousands of people come to make decisions on which bike to get, now seeing this i am sure it will create some doubt in people’s mind.
