Bajaj Pulsar RS200 Latest Updates
Bajaj sold over 1 lakh units of the Pulsar in March 2019. This is a big milestone considering they were selling between 40,000 to 60,000 units of the Pulsar range every month.
The Bajaj Pulsar RS200 is the first motorcycle from Bajaj to get a full-fairing and was the most powerful bike also before the recently launched Dominar 400. The Pulsar RS200 has been updated to adhere to BS-IV emission norms and also it gets two new colour shades that make the design much more pleasing on the eyes. The styling of the motorcycle has always been controversial with the youngsters liking it and the mature audience finding it too busy.
The Pulsar RS200 uses the same engine as seen on the Pulsar NS200 but gets the benefit of fuel-injection and produces 24.5PS and 18.6Nm of torque. The motor has been mated to a 6-speed transmission. The Bajaj Pulsar RS200 is priced at Rs 1.27 lakh ex-showroom, Delhi for the base variant. The Pulsar RS200 was also the first Bajaj motorcycle to offer single-channel ABS as an optional extra. The bike employs a perimeter frame and soft compound MRF tyres which endow the bike with good handling dynamics. The Pulsar RS200 is a good entry-level performance motorcycle and doubles up as an able tourer option also.
Bajaj Auto has passed on the GST (Goods & Service Tax) benefits to consumers and this has resulted in the ex-showroom price of its products being reduced marginally.

Bajaj Pulsar RS200 Highlights
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.
Design and Features
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.
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.
