The wait is finally over. The most awaited bike from the Bajaj stable has been officially launched
There has been a lot of speculations regarding why this, the most exciting revision of the Pulsar in a long time, has been delayed, after the first impression ride offered by the firm back in February 2012. Apparently, the company was making some last moment adjustments to the bike on customer and media feedback, like upgrading the headlight bulb from 35 to 55 Watt.
The 200 NS comes with a triple-spark, 4 valve, SOHC layout with fueling handled by a Mikuni UCD33 carburettor. It is also the first Pulsar to get a monoshock, while suspension duties up front are taken care of by meaty 37mm forks. With a kerb weight of 145 kg and 23.52 PS of power on tap at 9.500 RPM the all-new Pulsar was a hoot to ride around the Chakan test track. Now we are waiting and hoping it to be as much fun to ride on the city roads too, which you can expect to see soon in our forthcoming issue. The new generation Pulsar has been priced at Rs 94,280 (OTR, Pune).
