Bajaj introduces Pulsar NS200 with a bigger front disc brake and single-channel ABS.
Bajaj has launched the ABS-equipped version of its popular Pulsar NS200. The Pulsar NS200 ABS is priced at Rs 1.09 lakh (ex-showroom, New Delhi) – which makes it around Rs 12,000 dearer than the regular model. As per Bajaj, the ABS version is currently available in all metro cities and will be progressively available across outlets in other cities and towns.
The ABS system fitted on the Pulsar NS200 is a single-channel system, meaning it only works on the front wheel. The front wheel now gets a bigger 300mm disc (the standard version comes with a 280mm front disc) while the rear wheel gets a 230mm disc. Other than the introduction of ABS, the Pulsar NS200 is unchanged from the regular model. The powertrain is the same 199.5cc four-valve single-cylinder engine with triple spark ignition system that develops 23bhp of maximum power output and 18Nm of torque. The engine is mated to a six-speed gearbox.
Commenting on the introduction of the Pulsar NS200 ABS, Eric Vas, President – Motorcycles, Bajaj Auto Ltd said, said, “We have received a large number of requests from our customers for ABS and hence we are extending it to the NS200. The introduction of the ABS variant will enhance the bikes performance appeal and strengthen our leadership in this performance segment.”
The Pulsar NS200 ABS is available in three colours - Wild Red, Mirage White and Graphite Black. The introduction of the ABS version of the Pulsar NS200 also gives the motorcycle an advantage over its arch-rival, the TVS Apache RTR 200 4v, which still doesn’t have its ABS version on sale.
