The Bajaj Pulsar NS200 was updated in India last year. While the changes were quite subtle, they have added a bit of freshness to the motorcycle. We recently got to spend time with the bike and here’s what we think about it. For now, let’s give some much-needed attention to some of the best pictures of the Pulsar NS200 from our first ride review.
The design of the Pulsar NS200 has remained the same ever since its inception. But we aren’t really complaining because it looks quite aggressive and sporty even by today’s standards.
But the new BS6 iteration looks more attention-seeking than the BS4 trim because of the white-coloured perimeter frame and alloy wheels.
The sharp fuel tank extensions of the motorcycle also get white graphics that read ‘200’ in an edgy style while there’s a Pulsar badge on top.
Similar to its design, the feature list has not been updated either. The Pulsar NS200 still does away with a halogen headlamp and turn indicators with a twin-strip LED tail lamp.
The instrument cluster is also the same semi-digital unit. It gets an analogue tachometer along with an LCD showing speed, time, odometer, etc. And there’s a tiny secondary LCD that shows fuel level.
Powering the Pulsar NS200 is a 199cc, single-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine that produces 24.13bhp of power and 18.5Nm of peak torque. This engine feels quite eager from 3,000rpm, all the way up to 10,000rpm.
It is based on a steel perimeter frame that is suspended by telescopic forks and a monoshock. Although the NS200 is not the most agile in its class, it feels pretty stable and composed to turn in.
Its 17-inch alloy wheels are shod with MRF Zapper tyres that offer decent drip in dry conditions. Stopping these wheels are a disc at both ends assisted by a single-channel ABS system.
