Rajiv Bajaj, Managing Director of Bajaj Auto, revealed in a recent interview, that his company will launch “an all-new Pulsar” on April 14, and it is clearly visible that the Pulsar 200 Adventure Sports is the bike that Bajaj Auto is planning to launch on 14th of this month. Bajaj has already started delivering AS200 to its dealerships and it is a clear indication of the same.
The new Pulsar 200 Adventure sports shares the same platform as the old Pulsar 200NS. It will be powered by the same 199.5 cc single-cylinder engine that delivers 23.5 BHP @ 9,500 RPM and 18.3 Nm of torque at 8,000 RPM. It’s still not known if Bajaj has changed power and torque outputs from the engine for the extra weight carried by the fairing.
A sporty Adventure sports decal is clearly visible on the side of the fairing. Talking about the looks, AS200 is sure an eye-candy. With adventure inspired styling and attractive projector headlamps AS200 will surely be a solid offering from Bajaj Auto.
While some of the parts from 200NS are copied and used in the AS200 like -digital instrument cluster, the grab rails and the alloy footrests. It will ensure lower building costs and time. From the images it is assumed that AS200 will not get an ABS braking system but will carry the same 280 mm front disc and the 230 mm rear disc from the 200NS.
