The festive season is just around the corner and the auto makers in the country are gearing up for new launches. It looks like popular two wheeler maker Bajaj is also waiting out for this fall to launch its much anticipated Pulsar 200SS in the country.
Bajaj pulsar 200SS, a fully faired version of Pulsar 200NS has been trying the patience of the two wheeler enthusiasts in the country for quite some time now. Although Bajaj has not divulged the launch and key details of the bike, emerging reports suggest that the launch could happen during this festive season.
The bike had already made numerous appearances on the Internet through spy images and reports.
From what we know so far, Pulsar 200SS will be getting power from a retuned version of four-stroke, SOHC, liquid-cooled, single-cylinder engine, which does the duty in the 200NS. The engine is capable of producing 23.65 bhp of power and 18.3 Nm of torque.
As far as the features of the Pulsar 200SS are concerned, it is expected to include digital fuel injection system, optional ABS, monoshock suspension at the rear, telescopic forks at the front and projector headlamps.
Once it hits the market, the bike will rival the R15 V2.0 and Honda CBR150R in India and if rumours are to be believed, the new Pulsar model will be priced higher than 200NS.
