Bajaj Auto has come up with the latest addition to its range of bikes: the Bajaj Pulsar 200 NS. This latest bike from the house of Bajaj has been the talk of town recently. I did take a quick look at the specification of the bike and decided that the Bajaj Pulsar 200 is the best deal in that price. Let me throw some light on the Bajaj Pulsar 200 NS for making the decision easier for you. However let me make this clear that this is not a test ride review.
The Bajaj Pulsar 200 NS has a very fresh design for the Pulsar series; however the style is nothing revolutionary on the global platform. The headlights in the front resemble a lot like the one of Yamaha FZ, while those on the sides resemble that of the typical street fighter bikes. The back of the Bajaj Pulsar 200 NS looks a lot like the Bajaj Pulsar 135 LS. Even if the Bajaj Pulsar 200 looks a lot like the Honda CB 1000R, you need not worry a lot about it as there are not many CB 1000Rs on the roads.
The Bajaj Pulsar 200 NS has a 195.5 cc engine with a single cylinder with a 72 mm bore and a 49 mm stroke. It is a SOTC type of engine and share a few spares with the KTM Duke 200 but has been modified a bit by the manufacturers to cut down the cost with similar performance levels. Bajaj Pulsar 200 NS has a cooling system with a four valve technology. Bajaj Pulsar 200 NS is the first bike in its range to feature a triple spark technology which is an addition to the Bajaj auto range. The Bajaj Pulsar 200 NS has an independent spark control along with a 33 carburettor which makes sure of the fuel performance of the bike. To keep the cost down Bajaj has skipped the fuel injection in Bajaj Pulsar 200 NS.
Bajaj knows very well that what the customers expect from its vehicles and keeping this tradition in mind the Bajaj Pulsar 200 NS features the best engine ever compiled in such a motor cycle. This engine shows 23.52 PS of peak power at 9500 RPM and 18.3 Nm of peak torque at 8000 RPM. The amazing 162 BHP power to weight ratio of the Bajaj Pulsar 200 NS an amazing acceleration. The bike reaches 0 to 61 kmph in 3.6 seconds and 0 to 100 kmph in 9.8 seconds which is fairly enviable deal.
I would give a ready green signal to the Bajaj Pulsar 200 NS without any second thought. The claimed mileage of the Bajaj Pulsar 200 NS is 58 kmpl which on road conditions gives a 55 kmpl mileage. In spite the fact that the V is not as fast as those fancy super bikes, but at the price it is available, it is not very wise to let go of this bike.
