Nithyanandh K,

As a toddler, those wheeled machinery fascinated me even before I knew what they’re called as! So here I’m, petrolhead by birth, Mechanical engineer by qualification and automotive reporter by profession!

Previewed alongside the Bajaj Pulsar 150 NS.

Immediately after the first images of the production-spec Bajaj Pulsar 200 SS surfaced, a video showing the new fully faired sportsbike doing donuts has emerged. As it turns out, the bike made its premiere at a dealer preview in Turkey.

The Bajaj Pulsar 200 SS visually differs from the SS 400 only by means of its livery and badges.

The Pulsar 200 SS borrows its hardware from the naked Pulsar 200 NS and its design from the Pulsar SS 400 which was showcased at the Auto Expo 2014.

Twin projector headlights, eyebrow-like LED daytime running lights, split seat, clip-on handlebar, a stubby silencer and boomerang shaped two-piece combination lights sum up the design. The instrument panel is lifted off the 200 NS.

The 199.5 cc single-cylinder liquid-cooled engine comes from its naked sibling, but whether or not it gets fuel injection remains to be seen. It is to be noted that the Pulsar 200 NS sold in Turkey is equipped with FI. The power and torque outputs of the FI and carbureted version are identical at 23.52 PS at 9,500 rpm and 18.3 Nm of torque at 8,000 rpm. A 6-speed gearbox harnesses the power.

Production of the Pulsar 200 SS is reported to have commenced in India with a launch scheduled anytime now.

Competitors: Hero Karizma ZMR, Honda CBR150R, Yamaha R15, KTM RC200
Expected Price: INR 1-1.5 lakhs, ex-showroom
Launch Date: By end of 2014
