Bajaj has finally come up with a new update on the Pulsar RS200 after a long gap. So Bajaj has silently launched the dual-channel ABS variant of the Pulsar RS 200 in India.
The dual-channel ABS variant of the Bajaj Pulsar RS200 has started reaching select dealerships in India, before the bike’s official launch. It is priced at INRs 1,43,343 lakhs making it Rs 1,410 more expensive than the standard variant or the single-channel ABS variant.
Besides the safety feature, the Pulsar RS200 remains unchanged mechanically. Bur it is equipped with twin projector headlamps and crystal LED tail lamp. One of the reasons Bajaj has kept the premium in check could be because the RS200 is already featured with a 230mm rear disc with a wheel speed sensor. This could’ve saved some costs as opposed to fitting a rear disc and then enhancing its performance with ABS.
The Bajaj Pulsar RS 200 is powered by a liquid-cooled, triple-spark DTS-i 199.5 cc, single-cylinder engine with fuel injection. Producing a peak power of 24.5 PS @ 9750 rpm with 18.6 Nm of max torque @ 8000 rpm. Bajaj claims that it can yield a mileage of 35 kmpl under city riding conditions and can reach a top speed of 141kmph. Regarding its Suspension, it is managed by telescopic forks up front and a monoshock at the rear. Braking comes in the form of a 300mm disc at the front and a 230mm disc at the rear
As the first Pulsar RS200 was launched 2015, the motorcycle had remained unchanged besides that on 2017 the bike had received its first major upgrade with a revised software map and tweaked ECU to get along with with BS4 emission norms. Now by adding on with dual-channel ABS leads as a second update for it.
Pulsar RS200 is expected to bring BS6- complaint emission norms and oppose competition along with other updated bikes in the near future. We hope this version gets much more tangible features than just ABS and emission compliance so that its eventual price hike can be better justified.
With the colour varaints there are three colours to choose – Racing Red, Racing Blue and Graphite Black. the Pulsar RS200 gets twin projector headlamps and crystal LED tail lamp.
