Bajaj Pulsar RS200 review
Bajaj Pulsar RS 200 is a sports bike available at a starting price of Rs. 1,58,284 in India. It is available in only 1 variant and 3 colours. The Bajaj Pulsar RS 200 is powered by 199.5cc BS6 engine which develops a power of 24.2 bhp and a torque of 18.7 Nm. With both front and rear disc brakes, Bajaj Pulsar RS 200 comes up with anti-locking braking system. This Pulsar RS 200 bike weighs 166 kg and has a fuel tank capacity of 13 liters.
The entry-level supersport resembles a certain electric bike that’s been around for a while. The Pulsar RS 200 features sharp angular body panels, a full fairing, twin projector headlamps with eyebrow-type LED DRLs, and an LED tail light. The dual-tone paint scheme though has always been up for debate.
Despite the BS6 update, the RS200 manages to match the power output of its BS4 sibling. While the BS4 model made 24.5PS, the BS6 Pulsar RS200 produces 24.47PS. Torque output, on the other hand, is likely to be around 18.3-18.6Nm. There’s no change in the bike’s hardware either. The Bajaj Pulsar NS200 continues to ride on telescopic forks and a monoshock. The bike is anchored by a 300mm disc up front and a 230mm disc at the rear. Dual-channel ABS comes as standard.
The bike gets twin-projector headlamps that offer ample illumination, a semi-digital instrument console that feels a bit dated, backlit switchgear, dual-channel ABS for safety, and clip-on handlebars for a sporty riding posture. The console reads out information like fuel gauge and features two trips meters, odometre, a clock, service-due indicator, and tell-tale lights.
