USER OPINION

QUICK FACTS
Overview Bajaj Pulsar RS200 is the only fully faired motorcycle under Rs 1.50 lakh which comes loaded with ABS. However TVS Apache RTR 180 even offers ABS, but the performance factor and design of both the bikes is extremely different. Bajaj Pulsar RS200 produces 24.2 BHP and 18.6 Nm of torque. RS200 uses the same engine as KTM RC 200 but with DTS-i technology and different state of tune. Pulsar RS200 offers a very good value for money as it comes loaded with a lot of features like projector headlamps, ABS, and very informative instrument console.

Bajaj Pulsar RS200 (2017) Review

15 Feb, 2017 09:24 AM

Overview

Bajaj has been working hard from a long time to define what the company thinks of sport biking and finally a name has arrived for the much awaited spirit of racing. RS (Race Sport), a totally new name for Indian bike categories signifies the importance of racing DNA in the new Bajaj Pulsar RS200 (Known as Pulsar 200 SS before official launch in India).

Design and Style

The most advanced Pulsar yet, the new Bajaj Pulsar 200 RS is nothing less than a super-bike in terms of design. The complicated looking front of RS200 houses projector lamps for increased visibility and style with an addition of LED eyebrows, which boosts its aggressiveness to a new level. Small yet attractive exhaust adds to its racing appeal. Body cuts and curves are marvellous and they definitely will leave all of your side thoughts behind. The bikes is 1999mm in length, 765mm in width, 1114mm in height and the bike weighs 165 kg (kerb weight). The ground clearance of the fastest Pulsar is 157mm and the fuel tank capacity stands at 13 litres.

Instrument Console

Like other Pulsar bikes, the RS200 also comes equipped with an analog-digital instrument console. It features an analog tachometer with digital speedometer, digital odometer, digital trip-meters and clock. The ABS version also features an ABS on/off light.

Engine and Gearbox

Expectations remained the same, the new Pulsar RS 200 is still imagined with the 200 NS engine. But for RS200, Bajaj has launched the Fi (Fuel Injected) version of the 199.5cc engine. The Fi version produces 24.2 BHP (24.5 PS) @ 9750 rpm which definitely shatters the enemy's wining desire. A max torque of 18.6 NM @ 8000 rpm is produced. Comparatively, the Non-Fi 200NS develops maximum power and maximum torque of 23.17 Bhp @ 9500 rpm and 18.3 Nm @ 8000 rpm respectively. The engine houses six gears, each for a perfect shift and a considerable lead.

Top Speed and Mileage

Bajaj Pulsar is a born performer and evolution took it to a new milestone, 'an unmatched race machine'. The top speed of the bike is 140.8 KMPH and it should cross the 100 KMPH mark under 10 seconds! The company claimed mileage of RS200 is 54 KMPL (@ constant speed of 58 KMPH) and you can expect it to return real-world figure of around 30-35 KMPL in city and 40-45 KMPL on highways.

Brakes and Suspension

Braking of a racing bike is much more important than its accelerating power and for a Pulsar, which burst out like a forest fire, a 300 mm butterfly petal disc with floating caliper has been used at the front and a 230 mm butterfly petal disc for the rear has been used. ABS has been kept optional for the new performer. 60 to 0 kmph timings have gone significantly down with these advanced arrangements. RS200 also comes equipped with single channel ABS system. Suspension at work is the telescopic front forks with anti-friction bush and nitrox mono shock absorber with Canister at the rear.

Comfort While Riding

As expected, the 17 inch pair manages the ride and the rider throughout the ups and downs on the road. 110/70 tubeless tyre for the front and 130/70 tubeless for the rear guarantees superior track performance as well as comfortable city ride through the bumps. Split seats with proper finishing for the pillion makes the ride more comfortable. The same iconic handlebars have been used which fills the rider with an urge to race and defeat whatever comes in the way. The seat height of Pulsar RS200 is 810mm.

Shades and Variants

RS200 was initially launched in 2 eye-catching shades – Yellow and Red. But now on customer demand Bajaj has finally launched the black shade in Pulsar RS200 and it is known as Demon Black. Recenlty, in Feb 2017, Bajaj introduced 2 new shades for the RS200: Graphite Black and Racing Blue. The bike is available in 2 variants – Standard (non-ABS) and secoond one comes equipped with ABS (Anti-lock Braking System). The ABS model is equipped with single-channel ABS system by BOSCH.

Verdict

With an outstanding design, the new pulsar defines a class of racers who have no limits, no rules to be followed. The future of Bajaj Auto's sport biking spirit lies on its shoulder as a new revolution in the Indian made sports bike has started with the arrival of this bike and will go as far as the Pulsar takes it with them. A tough rival for not just 200 cc sports bikes but also for 250 cc segment, Bajaj's aggressive pricing for RS200 has made the scenario straightforward.
