Bajaj Auto has teased the new Pulsar Adventure Sport (likely to be called the Pulsar AS200) ahead of its launch tomorrow. However, judging by the invite sent out by the company (which says launch of the new Pulsar range), chances are Bajaj might launch more than one new Pulsar tomorrow.

Bajaj Pulsar AS200 teased
The AS200 will be third installment in the 200cc segment after the 200 NS and the RS200.

The Pulsar AS200 has already started arriving at select dealerships in India. The bike is based on the Pulsar 200 NS and is the third installment in the 200 cc segment after the naked 200 NS and the fully-faired RS200.

It will be powered by the 199.5 cc liquid-cooled single-cylinder engine, though whether or not it gets a fuel injection system like the RS200 remains to be seen. On the carburetor-fed 200 NS, this engine makes 23.52 PS and 18.3 Nm of torque, and is matched to a 6-speed transmission.

A half-fairing, projector headlight and a semi-digital instrument cluster are features that will be seen on the AS200, but sadly, Bajaj might not offer an ABS system on the motorcycle. Instead, the AS200 will get a 280 mm front disc and a 230 mm rear disc, carried over from the 200 NS.

Bajaj also plans on launching an adventure-styled Pulsar with a 150 cc engine, based on a new perimeter frame chassis. The rumored 150AS would launch soon after the AS200.

  1. Dr. Nayak says:

    With losing market share and increasing competition in the sub 300 cc engine category this company is headed for rock-bottom unless they change their stand on Scooters and introduce a better more modern scooter. Even if they introduce 400 cc engine bike, the volume is relatively low and will not help this company in any respect. They are missing out on an entire multimillion volume scooter category which is a basic extension of two-wheelers/motorcycles. I guess the Harvard MBA’S are at work in ivory towers!
