Bajaj have launched the Adventure Sport line of the Pulsar with two engine choices – 150cc and 200cc – from Rs 79,000.
The new Bajaj Pulsar Adventure Sport features a half-fairing design, based on the NS. The half-fairing design is akin to the Pulsar 220, but Bajaj have confirmed that both models will coexist.
The AS 150 gets a new 149.5cc four-valve, twin-spark DTS-i, air-cooled motor making 17 PS at 9,500 RPM and 13 Nm at 7,500 RPM. A 240mm disc up at the front and 130mm drum at the rear handle stopping duties. Rubber is tubeless, with a 80/100-17 up front and 110/80-17 at the rear. It weighs 143 kg dry.
The AS 200 on the other hand gets the same 199.5cc four-valve, triple-spark, liquid-cooled motor from the NS 200, with 23.5 PS at 9,500 RPM and 18.3 Nm at 8,000 RPM. The 200 gets a 280mm disc brake up front with a 230mm disc at the rear. Wider rubber is employed with 100/80-17 up front and 130/70-17 at the rear, again, the same as the NS 200. The AS 200 weighs 153 kg dry.
Both bikes get a projector low beam and a multi-focal reflector (MFR) halogen high-beam. Suspension on both bikes is a hydraulic fork up front and a monoshock rear. The fuel tank capacity is 12 litres. The AS 150 is priced at Rs 79,000, with the AS 200 sporting a tag of Rs 91,550, both ex-showroom Delhi.
Bajaj also mentioned the arrival of a 400 in this fiscal year. We hope to see AS, NS and RS versions around that engine.
