Bajaj Auto launched the highly anticipated Bajaj Pulsar RS200 in India at Rs 1.18 lakh. The 200cc performance motorcycle will also be offered with optional ABS at Rs 1.30 lakh.
The Bajaj Pulsar RS200 is the first fully faired motorcycle to be launched by the Chakan based two-wheeler manufacturer. Powering the Bajaj Pulsar RS200 will be the same powerplant as found on the Pulsar 200NS. What sets apart the Pulsar RS200 motor is the fact that it will be fuel-injected unlike the carburetted motor as seen on the Pulsar 200NS. Fuel-injection should result in crisper throttle response and avoid cold starting problems alongwith hiking the power output marginally. Providing firepower to the Bajaj Pulsar RS200 will be a 199.5cc, liquid-cooled, fuel-injected powerplant producing 24.4 PS of power at 9,750rpm and 18.6 Nm of torque at 8,000rpm. Power is transmitted to the rear-wheel via a six-speed gearbox. The above numbers and the full fairing body make the new Bajaj Pulsar RS200, the fastest production Bajaj motorcycle. The frame, suspension and brakes on the Pulsar RS200 has been borrowed from the Pulsar 200NS as it is. The Pulsar RS200 will be the first motorcycle from Bajaj Auto’s stable to offer ABS as an optional extra.
