The popular Bajaj Pulsar NS200 has entered the India Book of Records and FMSCI Indian National Record for setting the 'fastest quarter-mile wheelie' in the country. The popular street-naked motorcycle successfully achieved the record by completing the quarter-mile wheelie in 23.68 seconds.
The record was attempted with Hrushikesh Mandke on the saddle. It was further conducted under the presence of senior representatives from FMSCI (Federation Of Motor Sports Club of India) and an adjudicator from the India Book of Records.
The record attempt took place on a blocked-off stretch of an airport runway. The organisers also made sure all necessary protocols had been laid down, ensuring the safety of everyone present.
Furthermore, the rider was also provided with all the necessary safety equipment and gear. The Bajaj Pulsar NS200 motorcycle used to set the record was in stock condition. The only difference being the removal of the rear mudguard and the number plates, to avoid scrapping the tarmac while attempting the stunt.
Commenting on successfully achieving the record, Hrushikesh Mandke stated,
"I learnt to stunt on the first-generation Bajaj Pulsar, and I'm delighted to wheelie into the record books with the Pulsar NS 200. I have always trusted the Pulsar to deliver the performance and safety to enable extraordinary motorcycle stunts and it is fantastic that Indian stunt riders are now gunning for the record books, with made-in-India motorcycles."
Talking a bit about the motorcycle, the Bajaj Pulsar NS200 comes powered by a 199cc single-cylinder liquid-cooled triple-spark DTS-i patented technology. The engine produces 24.5bhp at 9750rpm and 18.5Nm of peak torque at 8000rpm, paired with a six-speed gearbox.
The motorcycle comes with standard telescopic forks at the front and a mono-shock suspension setup at the rear. Braking is handled by 30mm and 230mm discs at both ends, supported by single-channel ABS as standard. The motorcycle weighs 156kg, with a ground clearance of 168mm.
Bajaj recently introduced the 2021 version of its NS and RS range, adding new paint schemes. The latest-iteration of the Bajaj Pulsar NS200 is offered with a starting price of Rs 1.31 lakh, ex-showroom (Delhi).
