Bajaj to discontinue the Pulsar 200cc Adventure Sport version

Snapshot: A number of Bajaj authorized dealers have confirmed that they have stopped taking bookings for the Pulsar 200cc AS edition.

Bajaj Auto, one of India’s largest two wheeler manufacturer, has, reportedly, axed the Pulsar 200AS. A number of Bajaj authorised dealers have confirmed that they have stopped taking bookings for the same. However, the reason behind such discontinuation is yet to be disclosed. Earlier, Bajaj had restricted the sale of Pulsar 200NS (Naked Sport) to make way for the Pulsar 200AS and 150AS, in the mid 2015.

It can be noted that though the older models of the Pulsar series are undergoing a string of upgradation to fit in the current market status and laws, the newer models are frequently getting discontinued, making way for the new releases. Launched in 2015, the Pulsar AS200 is built on an aerodynamic design, projector headlamps, muscular tank and an extended windscreen. It also featured a powerful engine in the form of 200cc, single cylinder, liquid-cooled machine that churns out a high 23bhp at 9,500 revolutions per minute and peak torque of 18.3Nm at 8,000 revolutions per minute. The power reached the engine through a six-speed transmission gearbox.

Despite faring well in the market, many of the Bajaj motorcycles have faced similar fate in the past as well. The AS 200 had been moderately successful in the market and has powerful engine among its class. However, there has been rumours that the brand will be re-launching the earlier discontinued 200NS in the form of a 150cc variant soon. This new NS variant is expected to boost on a 149.5cc, air-cooled, single cylinder engine that can pump out 16.3bhp of power at 9,000 revolutions per minute and a maximum of 13Nm of torque at 7,500 revolutions per minute. This power will be transmitted to the wheels through a 5-speed transmission gearbox.
