Exclusive: Here's What You'll Have To Pay For The BS6 Bajaj Pulsar NS200
Gets fuel-injection, ECU, and an updated cat-con
- Apart from minor mechanical updates, the bike looks identical to the previous-gen Bajaj.
- Updates reel in an Rs 11,000 price hike.
- The BS4 Pulsar NS200 is priced at Rs 1,13,331 (ex-showroom, Mumbai).
The BS6 Bajaj Pulsar NS200 has started arriving at select dealerships across India. To comply with the stringent emission norms, the bike now features fuel-injection as standard, an ECU, and an updated cat-con. The changes have amounted to a steep price hike of Rs 11,000, bringing the cost of the NS200 to Rs 1.24 lakh (ex-showroom, Mumbai). Interested customers can unofficially book the streetfighter for a token amount ranging between Rs 1,000 and Rs 5,000. It’s expected to be launched by Feb-end.
While most two-wheeler manufacturers are offering more in terms of features with the BS6 update, Bajaj has stuck to basics. As a result, the BS6 NS200 looks exactly like the BS4 iteration. There are no new paint schemes on offer either, at least for now.
Bajaj hasn’t released any specs, so there aren’t any numbers to swear by. However, if we consider the fuel-injected Pulsar NS200 sold in Colombia, it makes 24.46PS of power and 18.6Nm of torque, mated to a 6-speed transmission. Expect the India-spec model to make slightly less power. The BS4 NS200 makes 23.5PS and 18.3Nm.
The BS6 NS200’s hardware hasn’t been altered either. It uses the same telescopic fork and monoshock for its suspension duties. A pair of disc brakes at the front and back help anchor the bike.
A price premium of Rs 11,000 is a lot considering the updates, but that’s just something we’ll have to live with. The TVS Apache RTR 200 BS6, on the other hand, costs the same and offers a lot more value for money.
