Bajaj Pulsar 200 AS To Be Launched Soon

Bajaj is all set to launch six new
motorcycles in the coming months, there
were basically speculations on what these
will be. We know for sure that the all-new
Platina and a newer Discover are on the cards
along with a new Pulsar. Adding to this line-up
will be the Pulsar 200AS, the AS expands to
Adventure Sports.

Based on the 200NS platform, the new Pulsar
200AS is aimed at those looking for machines
with touring capability as well as an appetite for
off-roading. Like the 220F, the 200AS has a half
fairing with a headlamp design similar to the one
on the Discover 150F. Bajaj has also added the
highly acclaimed projector headlamp from the
220F while the windscreen is larger too. The
running gear looks the same as the one in the

The new Bajaj Pulsar 200AS is expected to be
powered by a carburettor-fed or fuel injected
199cc engine from the 200NS. We believe that
the engine may make a wee bit more power than
the 23.5PS that the NS makes. Torque could
also go up in the process. ABS may be offered
as an option.
The AS will also come with a 6-speed gearbox
and a split seat configuration. There is also talk
of the 200AS having a larger travel front
suspension as part of the ‘adventure’ package.
Bajaj has been keeping mum regarding the
Pulsar since 2012. The updates at most that the
Pulsar range received is the change in graphics.
Bajaj may launch the Pulsar 200AS within the Rs
1.50 lakh mark, a point where it has no
competitors at all. 2015 then seems to be the
year of reckoning for Bajaj.
