Pulsar NS 200 is the first motorcycle from Bajaj with an all-new liquid-cooled engine. Based on the KTM Duke 200, Pulsar’s engine has a Single Overhead Cam design, 4-valves, triple spark plug technology, displaces 199.5cc, and produces 23.5 PS of power and 18.3 NM of torque. It is also the company’s first motorcycle to get a mono suspension at the back and a perimeter frame for a sportier and stable handling. All these factors along with a completely new design language, which is more akin to a typical Streetfighter style, makes the Pulsar NS 200 a revolutionary motorcycle for Bajaj. It is now BSIV compliant as well.

Pulsar 200 NS is the first proper streetfighter-styled motorcycle by Bajaj sporting a compact and an angular front end with a tiny visor covering the speedometer. The 12 litres fuel tank is sufficiently wide and has decent knee recesses for good holding while the tail section is sharp and minimal. The biggest highlight of the design is the perimeter frame which is a first for a Bajaj motorcycle and the mono suspension at the rear. Both at sportiness in abundance. The fit-n-finish and the overall build quality is satisfactory.
Designed as a streetfighter, Pulsar NS 200 offers an aggressive riding position but it doesn’t require the rider to lean forward. The rider sits mostly upright holding a high-mounted clip-on handlebar while the feet rest on rear-set foot-pegs. The whole setup provides a commanding riding stance and offers good visibility of the road ahead. Handlebar switches are well-within reach and the seat is comfortable enough for daily and occasional highway rides. The suspension also is well-tuned to tackle the varieties of roads.
Inspired by the KTM Duke 200 engine, Pulsar NS 200’s engine is revolutionary for Bajaj. It sports an innovative triple spark plug technology to reduce emissions without requiring a big catalytic converter in the silencer while assuring complete combustion of the air-fuel mixture in the cylinder head. The 199.5cc engine produces 23.5 PS of power at 9,500 RPM and 18.3 NM of torque at 8,000 RPM ensuring one of the best performances in its class without sacrificing much fuel efficiency. It also the Bajaj’s first liquid-cooled engine which provides better cooling ability consistently at high RPMs. The engine is now BSIV compliant.
The first Bajaj motorcycle to get a 6-speed transmission to extract all the performance from its 200cc engine. The gear shifts are smooth with positive feel along with the light pull of the clutch lever.
Pulsar NS 200 gets disc brakes at both ends for class-leading braking performance. The front is a 280mm rotor while the rear one is a 230mm. The brakes provide good bite and feedback even under emergency situations.
Pulsar NS 200 is a performance oriented motorcycle but it doesn’t ignore fuel efficiency. One of the advantages of the triple spark plug technology, among other things, is that it strikes a good balance between performance and fuel efficiency. Along with 12 litres of fuel tank capacity, the motorcycle ensures decent running range in one full tank.
