New Bajaj Pulsar 200NS - 001

The homegrown-cult bike manufacturer Bajaj Auto has unveiled the next generation Pulsar, which is the fifth generation of the most popular motorcycle in India. It was expected that Bajaj was about to upgrade the entire Pulsar line-up. The face-lift was much needed because the Pulsar was launched almost a decade ago. Anyways, Pulsar 200NS (Naked Sport) is new product, it features all-new exhaust layout, which is now below the engine like 200 Duke. The Pulsar 200NS is all-new in terms of styling and technology. It features new design for alloy wheels, instrument cluster, fuel tank and side scoops. 2012 Pulsar 200NS is lighter, stronger and faster. It was expected that all the Pulsar models will be upgraded but Bajaj unveiled Pulsar 200NS. The Pulsar 135, 150, 180 and 220 remains unchanged.

The new Bajaj Pulsar 200NS has been designed from scratch but it seems to be elder sibling of the Pulsar 135LS, the styling of head light, tail light and blinkers looks like inspired from the Pulsar 135. The fuel tank, side scoops, rear-view mirrors, alloys and most of the parts are all-new and don’t resemble to any other Pulsar. The front is best part of the styling, it gives very fierc and aggressive look to the bike. The rear-end features clear lens LED tail light and spilt grab rails. The turn indicators are same like Pulsar 135 which gels very well with the overall design of the bike. The design of alloys is also new and stylish which further enhances the looks of Pulsar 200NS. Bajaj will also launch faired version of 200NS in near future, which will compete with the likes of Yamaha R15 Version 2.0, Hero Honda Karizma ZMR and Honda CBR250R.
