Bajaj Pulsar RS200 Highlights
Built on the next gen Pulsar platform, the RS200 was Bajaj Auto's first fully-faired motorcycle. The styling might be unconventional and a bit too loud but it offers nearly all the goodies from its Austrian twin -- the KTM RC 200 -- in a friendlier package. Since its launch in 2015, there has been no tinkering with the looks as Bajaj has only played around with the colour schemes all along. Currently, there are three colours to choose from -- Racing Red, Racing Blue and Graphite Black. On the feature front, the Pulsar RS200 gets twin projector headlamps and crystal LED tail lamp.
Mechanically, there is no significant change except that the engine is now BS-IV compliant. The Bajaj Pulsar RS200 is powered by a liquid-cooled, triple spark DTS-i 199.5cc, single-cylinder engine with fuel-injection system. Peak power of 24.5PS is produced at 9750rpm with 18.6Nm od max torque kicking in at 8000rpm. Bajaj claims that it can yield a mileage of 35kmpl under city riding conditions and can reach a top speed of 141kmph.
Suspension duties are managed by telescopic forks up front and a monoshock at the rear. Braking comes in the form of a 300mm disc with single-channel ABS unit at the front. Meanwhile, the rear gets a 230mm disc brake.
The Pulsar RS200 is still available in two variants - Standard (without ABS) and an ABS variant. The non-ABS version costs 1,27,482 whereas the ABS version costs 1,39,386 (both ex-Delhi). The Bajaj Pulsar RS200 competes against the likes of Yamaha YZF R15 and the KTM RC 200.

Unlike earlier where the combination of bold colour scheme and contrast accents gave the Pulsar RS200 a garish appeal, the new Bajaj Pulsar RS200 gets a perfect combination of edgy, sharp lines and a pleasant colour scheme. It does not have an aggressive riding stance as of a sports bike rather has a slightly upright riding position helping the rider to stay on the bike much longer without getting exhausted, making it a good tourer as well.
Bajaj has made an effort to improve the engine this time around without altering its drivetrain configurations. Despite the same power and torque outputs, the bike’s engine is claimed to be more refined and sharper than earlier. Also, it has been tuned to comply with BS-IV standards. The ride quality on offer is terrific, thanks to its suspension assembly that comprises of telescopic forks at the front and Nitrox Mono-shock absorbers at the rear. However, its heavy weight makes it difficult at times to manoeuvre in the city. Apart from making it environment-friendly and adding new paint options, features like AHO and ABS have also been included that add more reasons to purchase it over its rivals.
Design and Features
Talking about the design, the Pulsar RS200 comes with a full fairing look. The front is quite aggressive embracing twin projector headlamp with AHO, LED pilot lamps, clear lens turn indicators and clip-on handlebars. The panel surrounding the instrument cluster gets a carbon fibre finish which is quite nicely done. The cluster displays all the important readings which a rider needs to feed on while riding the bike.
In addition, there are split seats, race exhaust, floating split LED tail lamps that certainly add funky character to the bike. Both the newly added colours, Racing Blue and Graphite Black, are pleasing and can be an impactful factor when selecting a sports bike like this. The interesting part of Racing Blue Pulsar RS200 variant is that it comes with different coloured alloys, front gets a blue treatment and the rear alloy wheel is painted in black, which is as cool as you’d like. However, the Graphite Black edition sports black alloys both at the front and at the rear.
Having said that the bike comes with a lot of cuts, lines and edges, Pulsar RS200 is not for everyone. For some, it steals the breath away while for others it is just overdone by the company. Overall the design of Pulsar RS200 is quite busy.
Dimensionally it measures 1999mm long, 765mm wide and 1114mm high. Ground clearance stands at 157mm and wheelbase is around 1355mm.
Braking and Handling
Built on the Perimeter Beam Section frame, the RS200 rides on telescopic front forks with anti-friction bush and Nitrox Mono shock absorbers with Canister at the rear. The combination of chassis and suspension assembly is worth admiring as it arms the rider with great confidence when getting around the corners at high speeds. The bumps and roughness of roads can be easily bypassed. The overall ride quality is good and smooth experience is guaranteed whenever you twist the bike’s throttle. On the braking front, there is 300mm disc at the front and 230mm disc at the rear which in combination with MRF rubber lends supreme braking force to the Pulsar RS200. The bike comes with ABS (Anti-lock Braking System) that extends its braking capabilities. The single-channel ABS is engaged only on the front disc. It sports 17-inch alloy wheels of which front wraps around 100/80 tubeless tyre and the rear is covered with 130/70 tubeless tyre.
Safety and Features
Bajaj Pulsar RS200 is equipped with ABS that not only adds to the safety front but gives the rider the confidence to push the bike through corners and on straight line and at the same time feel the punchy engine. Plus, the new Pulsar RS200 has LED twin projector headlamp with AHO that ensures visibility is intact regardless of the light and weather conditions.
