The fully-faired version of the Bajaj Pulsar NS200, the SS200, was spied testing on the outskirts of Pune. It is the smaller sibling of the Pulsar SS400 that was unveiled at the recently concluded Auto Expo. Various test mules of the SS200 have been spotted on test several times in and around the city where Bajaj has a manufacturing plant.
The camouflaged Pulsar SS200 that was spotted this time shows some part of the black fairing in the images but no other changes have been shown to us. The motorcycle carries the same body kit that the Pulsar SS400 had and is expected to carry over most of the elements from the Pulsar NS200. The bike is expected to have projector headlamps, DRLS, new OVRMs, clip-on handle-bars, new tail lamps though the side lamps are carried over from the KTM Duke 200 and 390. The rear tyre hugger is from the NS200.
The Pulsar SS200 will be powered by the same 200cc engine that the current NS200 comes equipped with, and will churn out 23.5bhp of power and 18.3Nm of torque. However, we believe Bajaj might offer it with fuel injection. The company might also bring in longer gear ratios considering the bike to be made to do long-distance tours.
Bajaj might launch the Pulsar SS200 before the launch of the Pulsar SS400 and CS400 in India. The fully-faired version has been designed to offer super-sport motorcycle like experience to customers in our country. It will go up against the Yamaha R15 V2.0 and the Honda CBR150R when it goes on sale. The Pulsar NS150 and NS180 might also be launched along with this motorcycle this year.
