A new prototype of Bajaj's Pulsar 200 AS (Adventure Sports) has made another appearance online -- this time through a spy video -- giving two wheeler enthusiasts in the country a close look at the model.
Caught on camera by OverDrive, the Pulsar 200AS is seen testing under camouflage. From the images, it looks like major updates are in terms of cosmetic changes, but mechanically the bike is expected to remain the same.
The new 200AS, a semi-faired version of 200 NS, seems to have gotten bigger windshield and new headlamp with projector. The power is likely to come from the same 199.5cc, single-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine of 200NS, which can pump out 23bhp of power and 18.3Nm of peak torque, coupled to 6-speed transmission.
Pulsar 200AS is likely to make its India debut in 2015, with probable launch by June. Other details of the new Pulsar are scanty at this point of time; however rumours suggest a price tag of sub-₹1 lakh. The upcoming Pulsar 200AS is also touted as a possible replacement of Bajaj's old Pulsar 220F.
Meanwhile, Bajaj showcased a new cafe Racer model, Pulsar 200SS and Pulsar 150 NS at a motor show in Turkey. Dubbed Boxer 150, the Cafe Racer model is powered by 144.8 cc single cylinder air cooled motor, which can churn out 12 hp of power at 7500 rpm and 12 Nm of torque at 4500 rpm. It is not sure if this model will be coming to India, but the Pulsar 200SS and Pulsar 150NS will be part of the company's India portfolio.
