Bajaj Auto is targeting sales of 2,500 units each month for its newly-launched Pulsar RS200. The RS200, or the Race Sport 200, was introduced in the Indian market yesterday at INR 1.18 lakhs for the non-ABS variant and INR 1.3 lakhs for the ABS-equipped version, ex-Showroom, New Delhi. The company is expecting both variants to contribute equally.

The RS200 gets a fuel-injected engine developing 24.5 PS.

The RS200’s sports-motorcycles segment accounts for only 1 percent of total industry sales, yet the Pulsar brand is sitting on a 43 percent market share in this segment.

Billed as the fastest Pulsar yet, the RS200 has a claimed top-speed of 141 km/h. The RS200 also has bragging rights for being the first Pulsar to offer an ABS system, a Bosch-made single-channel unit.

Power comes from a fuel-injected 199.5 cc single-cylinder engine capable of 24.5 PS at 9,750 rpm and 18.6 Nm of torque at 8,000 rpm, matched to a 6-speed transmission.

    The bike is far too heavy, my 250cc Honda NSR MC21 weighs only 138 kg and put out 45 PS, can Bajaj match this power-to-weight ratio?

    Just 2500 a month? I thought their estimate would be at least 10,000 a month. I guess, welcome to the world of above 1L bike universe in India! I could not have bought one at this price when I was the target consumer
    of that age group.
