Bajaj Pulsar RS200
Market status: Available in Bangladesh
Bajaj Pulsar RS200 is probably one of the most popular sports bike and sports commuters in India and Bangladesh. The Bajaj Pulsar series of motorcycles have come a long way since the beginning. What started as a basic commuter motorcycle has developed its own set of commuters, adventure sports bikes, naked sports bikes, and sports bikes. It sometimes also seems like that the Pulsar series itself has become a brand.
Bajaj is one of the biggest motorcycle manufacturers in the South Asian region (source). They have successfully collaborated with multiple motorcycle manufacturers around the world. Two of the most notable collaborations are the Bajaj-Kawasaki and Bajaj-KTM collaboration. The Bajaj Pulsar series is one of the most popular motorcycle series by Bajaj. This series is most notable as it gives you the most motorcycle for the least price possible.
The Bajaj Pulsar RS200 can be called a sports bike as well as a sports commuter. The Bajaj Pulsar RS200 gets top-of-the-line features for the price. The bike comes with a very aggressive design. TO most people this bike’s design reminds them of Transformers. The design of the bike allows it to be aerodynamic. However, this bike’s ergonomics is much different from a typical sports bike. This bike has a more comfortable and upright seating position.
The Bajaj Pulsar RS200 presently comes in two colors:
Metallic Pearl White.
The Metallic Pearl White comes with red decals. The Pewter Grey comes with black decals. There were many more colors of the bike, however, after the BS4 variant was released, few colors were discontinued.
The Bajaj Pulsar RS200 comes with dual-channel ABS, which is great for the handling of the bike. This makes the braking of the bike better than most sports commuters. Paired with the Perimeter frame, the bike’s handling is beyond comparison.
The Bajaj Pulsar RS200 comes with a full LED treatment. The headlight is two sets of projector headlights (source). This gives the bike a very futuristic look. The taillight and the indicators are also LED, which gives the bike a very attractive look and visibility. The most unique factor of the bike is the taillight. This “bull horn” design of the taillight makes the bike very much recognizable from a good enough distance.
The Bajaj Pulsar RS200 has an average seat height. That ensures the fact that a lot of fairly short riders will be comfortable and confident to ride it. But a short bike also means a low bike. The ground clearance of this bike is a mere 157mm. That may drag the on most speed breakers.
The height, length, width, and weight of the Bajaj Pulsar RS200 are 1114mm, 1999mm, 765mm, and 166kg respectively. The bike is a bit on the heavier side when compared to its competitors, but that is so that it can stay stable at high-speed maneuvers. The bike has an average wheelbase of 1345mm, which means it will be a well-balanced bike.
Engine and Transmission:
The Bajaj Pulsar RS200 comes with an FI (Fuel Injection) engine. This means it has an internal ECU (Electronic Control Unit) that controls the exact amount of fuel the engine needs. This system leads to better fuel efficiency. The bike comes with a 4-stroke, 4-valve, single-cylinder, Triple spark DTS-i, 199.5cc, and liquid-cooled engine. The engine produces 24.5PS of power at 9750rpm, and 18.7Nm of torque at 8000rpm. The power and torque figures of the bike are top-notch if compared to a regular sports bike.
The Bajaj Pulsar RS200 comes with a basic wet multi-plate clutch system. But what is exciting is the 6-speed gearbox. The 6-speed gearbox ensures that this is a performance-oriented bike.
Brakes, Suspension, and Wheels:
The Bajaj Pulsar RS200 comes with dual disc brakes with dual-channel ABS. The front being 300 mm, which is bigger than the regular disc brakes. This huge disc up front pretty much ensures safe and early stops during emergency braking situations. The overall brake setup of the bike is really impressive and very good.
The Bajaj Pulsar RS200 has regular telescopic forks with an anti-friction bush in the front and a Nitrox mono-shock with a canister in the back. The overall setup of the suspension has been done just like that of a proper sports bike, which is why the suspensions are a bit stiff.
The wheels are the biggest turn-off of the Bajaj Pulsar RS200. It comes with a 100/80 and 130/70 tire setup. Being a 200cc bike and having this tire setup is an absolute shame. This tire setup limits the cornering and the stability of the bike at high speeds.
Pros and Cons:
The Bajaj Pulsar RS200 was rigorously tested by team Bike BD and the test result came with multiple pros and cons.
