Bajaj Auto has released a sneak peek image of its upcoming all-new Bajaj Pulsar RS200, which will be launched on 27th March 2015, as per the report from BikeWale.
The darkened silhouette depiction doesn’t reveal much about the fourth-generation bike, but does highlight the twin projector headlamps and daytime running lights (DRLs) – similar front-fascia that was initially seen on 400SS which will be launched sometime next-year. The new Pulsar RS200’s technical specifications have already been published by the company for the Turkish market.
The company says the new Pulsar RS200 will be powered by the same 199.5 single cylinder liquid cooled DTSi engine with triple spark technology, which powers the NS200. But produces 24.4 PS power at 9,500 rpm and 18.6 Nm torque at 8,000 rpm instead of 23.52 PS power at 9,500 rpm and 18.3 Nm torque at 8,000 rpm, which is about 0.90 PS more powerful than 200NS and about 1 PS less powerful than Duke 200 and RC 200. Naturally, a 6-speed gearbox will do duty on the bike.
The Pulsar RS200 will be at 151 kgs, which is 6 kgs more than the NS200. With a 12 liter fuel tank, the RS200 is 2.3 liter less than NS200. It will measure 2,060 mm in length, 750 mm in width, 1,160 mm in height and come with a 165 mm ground clearance. This means, the RS200 is longer by 43 mm, shorter by 35 mm, and narrower by 54 mm as compared to NS200. Ground clearance too is reduced by 2 mm.
Although the RS200 is heavier than NS200, the tuning in output for more power and torque will results in Pulsar RS200 taking the claim of fastest Pulsar yet. It also gets fuel injection and will do the 0-100 kmph sprint in around 9.8 seconds, the top speed being close to 140 kmph. Furthermore, the company highlights that the Pulsar RS200 will be more fuel efficient and easy on the environment with less CO2 emissions.
The Pulsar RS200 shares its platform with the Pulsar 200 NS. It features a full fairing with twin projector headlamps, daytime running lights, diamond shaped LED tail lamps, side mounted exhaust (no underbelly here) and optional dual-channel ABS. Alloys and tyres will be of the same rating and size, as seen on Pulsar 200NS – which are 110/80/17 (front) and 130/70/17 (rear). Size of disc brakes too is also same – 280 mm front and 230 mm rear.
Unofficial booking for the new Pulsar RS200 have already commenced at some Bajaj dealerships with a promised delivery time by end of April. Meanwhile, the company has started accepting registrations to register you can visit Bajaj Pulsar RS 200’s Microsite.
