BAJAJ PULSAR NS200 DESIGN AND STYLE
The Bajaj Pulsar NS200 is that motorcycle which shown what 200cc segment motorcycles should look like. Initial inspiration for the 200NS’s design seemed to have been taken from the smallest Pulsar, the Pulsar 135LS. But with the upcoming newly facelift, the Pulsar 200NS gets a sporty look, with all the new decals and the matte paint finishes.
The big, largely opaque ‘200’ decal on the tank shroud adds detail and character to the motorcycle. The Pulsar 200NS is not a sharp motorcycle, but instead it has muscular curves at all the right places. The small cowl, positioned under the engine makes for an interesting little detail and is the only part in the design of the motorcycle which promotes sharpness.
BAJAJ PULSAR NS200 ENGINE AND PERFORMANCE
Bajaj Pulsar NS200 Engiine And Performance
The Bajaj Pulsar 200NS is powered by a 199.5cc, liquid-cooled, single-cylinder engine with a maximum power output of 23.17bhp at 9,500rpm and a peak torque output of 18.3Nm at 8,000rpm. The rear wheel is chain-driven via a 6-speed gearbox.
The motorcycle is capable of accelerating from 0-100kmph in 9.83 seconds and will go on to touch a top speed of just over 136kmph. One impression that can be taken away from riding the Pulsar 200NS is that, the engine is rev-happy, because it remains butter smooth throughout the rev-range. Acceleration too, as the figures point out, is brisk, and a sense of urgency can be felt.
Though the engine is roughly based on that of the KTM Duke 200, the power delivery is more linear and smooth instead of the mad dash to the rev-limiter felt on the KTM.

Bajaj Pulsar NS200 Mileage
The triple-spark technology helps here, as it has increased combustion efficiency and better ride-ability at low revs has also contributed to efficiency. The Pulsar 200NS returns 30kmpl while being ridden around town, and 40kmpl when out on the highway. An average mileage of 35kmpl is respectable, given that it uses a high-compression 200cc engine.
