A new photograph of Bajaj Pulsar 200SS has appeared online again, revealing that the bike is still in testing phase in the country.
Snapped near Rohtang Pass near Manali by Mohit Agarwal and published at bykez.com, the new spy shot features three bikes which appear to be Bajaj 200SS and 200 NS FI. Although the heavy camouflaging hides most of the details of the bikes, the repeated sightings of the bike reveal that launch of the pulsar 200SS in the country is not too far. The bike which is the fully faired version of Pulsar 200NS was earlier spotted at a dealership in the country, indicating its arrival.
Under the hood, Pulsar 200SS is likely to carry the retuned version of four-stroke, SOHC, liquid-cooled, single-cylinder engine of 200NS. The 200NS is powered by an engine, which has an output of 23.65 bhp and a torque of 18.3 Nm.
Other stipulated features of the bike include digital fuel injection system, optional ABS, monoshock suspension at the rear, telescopic forks at the front and projector headlamps. Expected to be priced competitively in the market, the new 200SS will take on the likes of Yamaha R15 V2.0 and Honda CBR150R in the sub-continent market.
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 mesmerized the throng at 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. Pulsar SS400 shares similarities with the earlier rumoured Pulsar 375 and is expected to come with features like split seat, mudguard-mounted tailight and clip-on handle bars. The bikes also house anti-lock braking systems (ABS). The Super Sport 400 Pulsar (SS400) would be the first to make its entry to the market, followed by the Cruiser Sport 400 (CS400).
Bajaj Discover F150, which is believed to be the flagship variant in the Discover lineup, is likely to draw its power from four-valve, 150cc DTS-i engine which can generate a power of 14 PS. It is rumoured to come with features like disc brakes, monoshock suspension at the rear and both electric and kick starter.
