The Pulsar 200NS surely upped the ante in the Indian performance bike segment when it was launched last year. The 200NS is the flagship variant of the popular series of Indian bikes and is definitely a league ahead of all other bikes in the Pulsar line up. The 200NS has not just endowed the Pulsar range with even better sales performance but has also appealed to those who wanted KTM 200 Duke like performance but at a lower price.
The 200NS benefits from its link with the 200cc variant of the KTM Duke and hence, not just has better engine performance than the Pulsar 220cc variant but also is better in most other aspects such as that of braking and handling.
Such has been the popularity of Pulsar brand of bikes in India that Bajaj didn’t even feel the need of coming up with a TVC when it launched the 200NS. However, BAL has finally released the first ad of Bajaj Pulsar 200 NS, which might be in a bid to keep the buzz around the product. Christened as the Pulsar Mania 2.0, the new commercial shows the new Pulsar flagship’s nimbleness and focusses on the much hyped triple spark plug technology. The bike is also seen pulling off a spectacular rolling stoppie and we are time and again hitting the repeat button to see the tasty looking bike in great action.
Powering the new Pulsar 200NS is a single cylinder engine that benefits from a 4 valve layout. The engine is fed from a carb. and has a SOHC/triple spark plug layout. The liquid cooled engine has a max power output of 23.65 Bhp and a peak torque figure of 18.3 Nm.
Several months down the line, there are no two ways about the fact that the 200NS is still among the most well sorted out bikes in its segment.
