The Bajaj Pulsar NS200 has been around since 2013, and since then, apart from moving to fuel injection to meet BS6 norms and some new colours, it hasn’t really seen any changes. So in a bid to still keep it relevant in today’s day and age, Bajaj has finally given the aging Pulsar NS200 a much needed set of updates.

What's the Price? Who are its rivals? 

At Rs 1,47,347 (ex-showroom Delhi), the NS200 goes up against the TVS Apache RTR 200 4V, KTM 200 Duke and the Honda Hornet 2.0

What's new? 

The biggest change on the NS200 is the new 33mm inverted fork. Bajaj has also thrown in dual-channel ABS, two things that the bike desperately needed. That should ideally mean the bike’s sportier and safer than before. 

Bajaj has also done away with the ByBre brakes, replacing them with Grimeca ones we’ve seen on the Pulsar N250 and the F250, meaning a 300mm disc at the front and 230mm one at the rear. The petal discs have also made way for normal circular ones. 

Bajaj has finally given the dated-looking semi-digital console a much needed update too. No, it’s not a fully digital TFT screen, but more practical bits like Distance to Empty, real-time fuel efficiency and a gear position indicator have been added to it. But the basic design of the console remains unchanged.

The NS200’s 199cc engine is now ready to comply with the upcoming OBD 2 norms, meaning it’ll soon comply with emission norms in real time. Accompanying these updates is a 1.5kg lower kerb weight, with the savings coming from the updated suspension and wheels. Bajaj also claims that the updated NS200 will return a mileage of around 37kmpl.

What's unchanged? 

What’s the most modern bit on the Pulsar NS200, its liquid-cooled four-valve engine hasn’t been tampered with, meaning its 24.5PS and 18.5Nm power figures have remained unchanged. That makes it the most powerful 200cc bike in India after the KTM 200 Duke and the RC 200.


These updates should aid in keeping the Pulsar NS200 more relevant. While the Rs 6,681 price hike might sound steep, it’ll help differentiate customers between the N and the NS line better. The NS line is now on the more premium side of things with their liquid-cooled engines and more premium hardware. As to how these changes are like in the real world, we’re riding these bikes soon.
