So, finally after a long wait, its here! The first fully-faired motorcycle from Bajaj – the Pulsar RS200 has been launched at an event in Mumbai. With the launch of the Pulsar RS200, at a sticker price of Rs 1.18 lakhs for the non-ABS variant the company is attempting to snatch back the lost ground, and in style!
Here are the key features of Pulsar RS200
- Triple spark, 4 valve DTSi engine with fuel injection and liquid cooling
- 300 mm front disc brakes with ABS
- Perimeter frame
- Nitrox mono suspension at the rear
- Throaty midship race spec exhaust for better response (claimed)
The 199.5cc single cylinder liquid cooled mill produces a maximum power of 24.5 PS at 9750 rpm and 18.6Nm of torque at 8000 rpm (slightly higher than 200NS), which helps it clock a claimed top speed of 141 kmph! Designed to be an everyday sports bike as well as a race track ready unit, the motorcycle redlines at 11,000 rpm!
Pulsar RS200 also comes with ABS, which makes it the first ABS equipped motorcycle from Bajaj. Interestingly, siblings from KTM – RC200 or Duke 200 are not offered with ABS even as an option! Rear is a 230mm dia disc. 200RS gets twin projector headlamps – 55w low beam and 65w high beam.
The fairing has been aerodynamically tested and mated with the proven engine and a strong chassis, the bike should be a delight to ride (more on that when we ride it early next month!).
The Bajaj Pulsar RS200 has been launched in two variants and here are their prices…
- Pulsar RS200 Non ABS variant: Rs 1,18,500
- Pulsar RS200 ABS variant: Rs 1,30,268
