How often do we witness that almost every new product is first made available elsewhere before finally making it to India. Although there are rumors that the Bajaj Pulsar 200 SS will be launched in its home country sometime this summer, their Turkish distributor, Kuralkan Holdings has confirmed with a local source during the Eurasia Moto Bike Expo 2015 that the bike will be launched there in June this year.
Showcased alongside the soon to be launched Pulsar 150 NS and a Discover 150, the Bajaj Pulsar 200 SS will be imported as a completely built unit from India and will cost 9,999 Turkish Liras, which translates to Rs 2,40,000 in Indian currency. Borrowing its powerplant from the Pulsar 200 NS, the faired motorcycle is powered by a 199.5cc, mono cylinder block that gets its spark from three sources, is liquid cooled and cranks out 24.4 PS at 9500 rpm, coupled with 18.6 Nm of torque at 8000 revolutions, 0.3 NM more than the naked cousin. Equipment wise, the faired motorcycle scores over the street-fighter 200 NS and gets DRLs, a projector headlamp setup and LED tail-lights infused within the rear fender.
