BAJAJ PULSAR RS 200 2017 ABS

 - 

The Pulsar RS 200 is Bajaj"s first & only fully faired motorcycle. Launched in late-năm ngoái, the xe đạp got modern bits similar to lớn the NS 200 but ushered in fuel-injection, which bumped power up by 1PS. The bike, though, came with a polarising thiết kế and the loud graphics did not help matters either. The Pulsar RS 200 receives its second update in the size of a revised engine to lớn comply with BS-IV norms that will come into lớn effect from April 2017. Bajaj also took the opportunity khổng lồ refresh, or rather clean up the aesthetics to lớn make the xe đạp easy on the eyes.

The Changes

Being a fuel-injected motor, the RS 200 did not need any major modifications lớn begin with, so the 199.5cc liquid-cooled motor gets revised software maps and an updated Bosch ECU for optimum combustion. All in all, the RS 200 doesn’t have sầu any changes to lớn its 24.4PS of power & 18.6Nm of torque.

The RS 200 has a very busy thiết kế và the previous graphics didn"t help matters either. The new kiến thiết has cleaner elements that make the looks palatable & does not miss out on sportiness either.

The RS 200 comes in three contrast colour combinations - white và blue, blachồng và gray & red & blaông xã. The wheels too come in different shades: our test bike had a blue rim at the front and a blachồng ryên ổn at the rear. The rest of the body toàn thân panels remain the same except for a carbon fibre surround for the instrument cluster and a missing headlamp switch courtesy the Aulớn Headlamp On (AHO) feature.

In terms of the chassis, the RS 200 uses a perimeter frame, a gas-charged (Nitrox) rear monoshochồng and grippy MRF Zapper radial tyres. There are no changes on this front.

How is it lớn ride

The RS has always been a good handler và remains so & feels more stable in corners compared to lớn the NS 200 though the latter"s front over is more communicative. The RS benefits from a slightly sharper rake và a stiffer setup & is quite capable on a racetraông chồng as well.


The 199.5cc motor is tractable but tuned for top over whachồng that comes handy at the racetraông xã and is geared well khổng lồ get off the line quickly. The engine is more refined than before though we encountered a small buzz emanating from the motor around the 5-6000rpm range.


Braking is courtesy a 300milimet front và 230mm rear disc gripped by Bybre callipers. The xe đạp gets an optional single channel ABS which, I felt, cuts in way too early. Braking remains effective sầu and sure-footed nevertheless.


The lowdown

The Pulsar RS 200 is the quickest and best handling sub-250cc sportsxe đạp from Bajaj yet. The update now makes the bike more refined và makes it look better as well. The xe đạp is priced at Rs 1,21,881 (ex-showroom, Delhi) for the standard variant và Rs 1,33, 883 for the ABS variant, which is 42 thous& rupees cheaper than the sport-riding focussed KTM RC 200.
