Indian two-wheeler manufacturer Bajaj Auto has finally relaunched its naked street fighter, the Pulsar 200NS in India. The 2017 iteration of the motorcycle is now compliant with the new BS-IV emission norms.
Apart from the Pulsar 200NS, Bajaj has also updated the faired Pulsar, the RS200, which also gets the new BS-IV compliant engine and new paint scheme.
The newly launched Pulsar 200NS features new body decals and paint schemes. The motorcycle is now offered in three colour schemes - Graphite Black, Mirage White and Wild Red.
The 2017 Pulsar 200NS is powered by a 199.5cc single cylinder, liquid cooled, 4-valve engine which produces 23.5bhp and 18.3Nm of peak torque. The engine is now compliant with the new BS-IV emission norms.
Although, the new motorcycle weighs 151kg, 6kg heavier compared to the previous model. This might be due to the modification done to the engine to comply with the BS-IV emission norms.
Apart from that the new Pulsar 200NS gets an underbelly engine cowl which adds to the sporty appeal of the motorcycle. The 2017 Pulsar 200NS is equipped with 280mm disc up front and 230mm disc at the rear.
The 2017 Pulsar 200NS continues to feature the telescopic suspension at the front and the mono-shock at the rear. The new Pulsar 200NS is launched with a price tag of Rs 96,453 ex-showroom (Delhi).
The newly launched 2017 Pulsar 200NS will compete against its segment rivals such as TVS Apache RTR 200 4V and KTM Duke 200.
TVS Apache RTR 200 4V is a tough competitor to the 2017 Bajaj Pulsar 200NS. Check out the extensive photos of the naked motorcycle by clicking the gallery below.
