We are aware that Pune-based bike maker Bajaj is readying a series of Pulsar avatars for the Indian market. But now, emerging reports on the web suggest that after the successful introduction of Pulsar RS 200, Bajaj is now prepping to roll out its next offerings in the country.

Bajaj has already confirmed that the company will launch its new range of Pulsars in India on 14 April. And although the company did not specify which of the Pulsar models will be unveiled on the day, it is being speculated that it will be Pulsar 200AS and Pulsar 150NS. 

Pulsar 200AS

Pulsar 200 AS, a semi-faired version of 200 NS, is likely to get power from the same 199.5cc, single-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine of 200 NS that can churn out 23bhp of power and 18.3Nm of peak torque, coupled to six-speed transmission.

Touted as a possible replacement of ageing Pulsar 220F, Pulsar 200AS is expected to include new alloy wheels, projector headlight and bigger windshield.

Pulsar 150NS

Pulsar 150NS, a smaller sibling of Pulsar 200NS, will be powered by 149.5cc single-cylinder air-cooled engine that can pump out a power of 16.3bhp of power at 9,000rpm and a peak torque of 13Nm at 7,500rpm. The engine will come paired to a 5-speed gearbox and the bike will have a fuel-tank capacity of 12 litre. In terms of dimensions, the Pulsar 150Ns will measure 2,105mm in length, 800mm in width and 1,220mm in height with a wheelbase of 1,363mm. In India, the model is likely to come with a price tag of around ₹75,000.
