Bajaj Auto has unveiled the new Pulsar NS200 adventure edition at the Istanbul Motor Show in Turkey. The Pulsar NS200 gets several cosmetic updates to make it a touring-friendly motorcycle. There are no mechanical updates as the overall design of the naked motorcycle remains the same.
The adventure edition of the Bajaj Pulsar NS200 gets several cosmetic updates to the overall design. The Pulsar NS200 adventure features a headlight grille, knuckle guards, engine bash plate and auxiliary lights. All these design elements give the motorcycle a rugged look. The aluminium bits on the front cowl and radiator adds to the looks of the adventure bike.
Apart from that the Bajaj Pulsar NS200 adventure edition also gets a saddle bag or pannier frame at the rear which helps to mount the luggage system on the bike easily. The pillion grab rail has been tweaked and now gets a luggage rack to mount a top box. The motorcycle also gets a navigation device mounted on the handlebar.
The Bajaj Pulsar NS200 adventure edition showcased in Istanbul draws power from a 200cc single-cylinder, fuel injected, liquid-cooled engine producing 24bhp and 18.6Nm of peak torque. The engine is mated to a 6-speed gearbox. The rest of the mechanical components remains unchanged as compared to the standard model.
The Bajaj Pulsar NS200 adventure edition is equipped with telescopic forks up front and monoshcok suspension setup at the rear. The bike does not get a long-travel suspension. Braking duties are handled by discs at both the ends with single-channel ABS on the front wheel. Apart from that, all the design elements remain the same.
Bajaj has not yet confirmed about the launch of the adventure edition Pulsar NS200 even in the foreign markets. But Bajaj could borrow the adventure bits and could provide it as an optional accessory on the Dominar 400 in India. We have already seen several customisation firms modifying the Dominar 400 as an adventure tourer. A dealer-level optional kit could make things much easier for the customers.
DriveSpark's Thoughts On The Bajaj Pulsar NS200 Adventure Edition
The adventure edition of the Pulsar NS200 looks promising, but it misses out on key components such as long-travel suspension and a windscreen to avoid windblast. But considering it as a mere cosmetic modification, Bajaj has done well with the motorcycle. Bajaj is unlikely to introduce the Pulsar NS200 adventure in India as the Pulsar AS200 and AS150 did not perform in the Indian market.
