Even as Pulsar aficionados wait keenly for the upcoming full-faired Pulsar 200SS to get launched in our country a new variant of the 200cc offering has been spotted in Indonesia. Christened the Bajaj Pulsar 200AS, the AS stands for Adventure Sport. The Bajaj Pulsar 200AS is not an entirely new motorcycle and is based on the Pulsar 200NS. The Bajaj Pulsar 200AS sports a quarter fairing and projector lamps similar to the popular Pulsar 220 thereby signifying its touring DNA. The design inspiration for the new offering seems to be the Bajaj Discover 150F.

 

Powering the bike will be the same 199cc, liquid-cooled single-cylinder motor as seen on the standard 200NS. But it is expected that the engine will get fuel-injection so expect better throttle response. The powerplant will be mated to a 6-speed gearbox. Although, the bike has been christened Adventure Sport, suspension setup on the bike remains unchanged with telescopic front forks and monoshock setup at the back. Braking duties will be taken care of by disc brakes at front and rear while ABS might be offered as an option.

If Bajaj does launch the Pulsar 200AS, it will be the third 200cc Pulsar offering in our two-wheeler market after the upcoming 200SS and 200NS. Given the fact that the Pulsar 220 still continues to clock decent sales figure, the Bajaj Pulsar 200AS does make sense in our market. With Bajaj being renowned for its cutthroat pricing expect the Pulsar 200AS to carry a sticker price below Rs 1.3 lakh. Watch this space for more updates.
