Bajaj Autohas passed on the GST (Goods & Service Tax) benefits to consumers and this has resulted in the ex-showroom price of its prooducts being reduced marginally.
Launched back in 2015, the Bajaj Pulsar RS 200 is the company’s first full-faired motorcycle. When launched, the bike featured a polarising design and loud graphics. But with the second update in early 2017, Bajaj has made the bike easier on the eyes. Other than the various colour options available, the wheels too come in different shades. The semi-digital instrument console, though, comes with a faux carbon-fibre surround and houses all the basic readouts along with a side stand indicator.
With BS-IV norms in place, the 199.5cc, liquid-cooled motor now gets fuel-injection and revised mapping for better combustion. However, the power and torque figures remain the same with the bike producing 24.5PS at 9750rpm and 18.6Nm at 8000rpm. Braking duties are managed by a single channel 300mm disc up front, while the rear gets a 230mm disc brake. ABS comes as an optional extra.
KTM RC 200: In terms of sheer track riding experience, the KTM RC 200 is still the best in its class. The bike received a facelift recently and is now BS-IV compliant as well. The updates make it even more tempting than before, but it isn’t ideal for daily use thanks to the stiff suspension setup and the committed riding posture. This blend, however, does make it fun to ride around the twisties.
Yamaha Fazer 25: The Fazer 25 is Yamaha’s first full-faired offering in the 250cc segment. It also happens to be the most powerful Yamaha manufactured in India till date. Unlike the Bajaj Pulsar RS200 and the KTM RC200, this bike isn’t built for track days. What it’s good at is touring and the riding dynamics on offer will enable the rider to cover long distances with ease. Combine this with its ability to manage city riding and you have a package that is simply irresistible. However, it doesn’t look as attractive or sporty as the Pulsar.
The Pulsar RS200 has proved to be a masterstroke for the Chakan-based manufacturer. It is a well-rounded package with a good balance of performance and handling without compromising on comfort. What sweetens the deal further is the added safety net of ABS, the fresh design update, and the competitive pricing.
Bajaj Pulsar RS200 is available in 2 Colours :
Likeable performance, Engaging handling dynamics, ABS option
Design is too fussy, Build quality could be better, Engine vibes
The Pulsar RS200 is a feisty full-fairing offering from Bajaj, which packs in the great price-performance in its class and the added safety of ABS.
Fastest Pulsar or not, the new Pulsar RS200 is a well sorted, well thought-out motorcycle. It is also fast, no doubt. But, its true highlight is it's easy to ride nature. For prices, specification and pictures of the new Bajaj Pulsar RS200 log on to ZigWheels.com
New updates now make the RS look easy on the eyes, and the updates are not just skin-deep either.
The Bajaj Pulsar RS200 impressed us on the race track but how does it perform in real world conditions in the company of its rivals? We have pitched it against the Yamaha R15 Version 2.0 and the Hero Karizma ZMR to find out the answer
The upgraded Pulsar RS200 and NS200 are priced at Rs 1.21 lakh and Rs 96,000 (ex-showroom, Delhi)
The standard model has been priced at Rs 1.47 lakh while the ABS trim gets a price tag of Rs 1.62 lakh (both on-road, Mumbai)
Both were showcased at Bajaj’s dealership meet in Turkey, so their Indian launch is uncertain
