Bajaj's much anticipated Pulsar 200SS has been caught testing yet again in the country, fuelling fresh rumours that the launch of the bike could happen soon in the country.
Bajaj Pulsar 200SS has been on test in the country for quite some time now. The bike was earlier spotted at a dealership of the company, indicating the arrival of the vehicle. However, the company is still silent on the matter.
The latest set of Pulsar pictures comes from the folks at Indiancarsbikes. In the images, the bike is seen hiding under new camouflage, thus not revealing much detais. However, the images show a bigger test mule than what we have seen before. The upcoming Pulsar 200SS, the fully faired version of Pulsar 200NS is expected to pack the retuned version of four-stroke, SOHC, liquid-cooled, single-cylinder engine of 200NS. It is powered by an engine, which has an output of 23.65 bhp and a torque of 18.3 Nm.
The bike, which is expected to take on the likes of Yamaha R15 V2.0 and Honda CBR150R in the sub-continent market would be priced slightly higher than Pulsar 200NS. Other than the bits and pieces, we do not have much detail of the next Pulsar. However, rumours suggest that the bike will get features like digital fuel injection system, optional ABS, monoshock suspension at the rear, telescopic forks at the front and projector headlamps.
Recently, Bajaj's Pulsar 150NS, a smaller sibling of pulsar 200NS was also caught on test in India. Bajaj Pulsar 150NS is speculated to get features like aluminium number plate holder and a split grab rail along with 100/90 cross section rear tyre and single seat. The engine specifications of the new NS bike from the Pune-based two-wheeler maker is yet to be known, however, previous reports indicated that the Pulsar 150NS is likely to pack a new engine.
Apart from Pulsar 200SS, Bajaj is also speculated to introduce Discover F150, Pulsar SS400 (Super Sport 400) and Pulsar CS400 (Cruiser Sport 400) in India in the coming months. The SS400 and CS400, which took the crowd by surprise at the Delhi Auto Expo 2014 will follow the design philosophy of KTM Duke 390 and comes with 375cc liquid-cooled, four-valve triple spark engine. The engine is coupled to a six-speed transmission with fuel injection.
