The new BUMBLEBEE: The Bajaj Pulsar 200ss

Pulsar 200 SS

This time and Bajaj Auto is back to the market with another eye catchy fearless monster, the new Pulsar 200ss. The Delhi Auto Expo 2014 has been a biggest turning point for Bajaj auto with the prototype launch of the full-fairing Pulsar SS400 and the naked style Pulsar CS400 concepts. Both the prototypes looked stunning and aggressive. Automobile enthusiasts all over the country have been expecting for the launch of one of these bikes in the 400cc criteria which has not drawn much attention in our country. The RC 390 by KTM was expected to compete with the 400cc pulsars. But it seems like Bajaj auto has planned to make a strategic shift by staying active and dominate the 200cc range of bikes with the carbon copy of SS400, the Pulsar 200ss that is believed to be on the launch pad anytime soon this month. Bajaj autos has been testing its new bike around the country for this purpose.

Bajaj Pulsar 200SS The new Bajaj Pulsar 200SS is the trending talk of the Indian bike sector with an improved performance and a jazzy look that would write another history in the Pulsar trademark. As mentioned above, this new maniac from the pulsar family has been spotted around the country during its test run and it was reported that the bike has nothing similar in looks with its elder brothers. Until the official launch the exact specifications and the special features cannot not be discussed deeper, but rumors that have been spread around about the pulsar 200SS gives a clear picture about the performance and other features. For now we have lot of leaked information that would tell us about the next generation pulsar.
Bajaj Pulsar 200SS Appearance: The first and foremost is the elegant appearance of the Pulsar 200SS. One would keep on talking more about the appearance if they had a glimpse of the next gen pulsar. Several images of the pulsar have been leaked since the month of May. These images have made one thing clear, the new pulsar will have a full-fairing which makes it look like a super sports bike with a postfix ‘SS’ denoting the same. It is said that the fairing is double layered. In this bike only a little part of the engine is exposed outside the fairing. The 200SS is the first bike from the pulsar family to have a full-fairing that makes this Indian born bike a unique machine. Due to the covered sides, the bike is equipped with a radiator that plays an essential role in cooling the engine. The best part of the Bajaj Pulsar 200SS is its front styling. The front doom makes the bike look more stylish with a cool styled visor and all the perfectly matching decals that makes it look like a super styled rockstar. The center of attraction are the twin projector lamps with the LED pilot lights. These pair of projectors and pilot lights are symmetrically placed at each side of the front face with a black portion in the middle coming straight down from behind the visor. This front part will look like a head that makes it resemble like the famous Autobot, the Bumblebee. I personally feel that this bike appears like a two wheeled bumblebee with a yellow color option that is available. The indicators are placed compactly within the doom and refreshingly equipped with LEDs which makes it durable. Alike the Pulsar 220, the yet to be released pulsar 200SS has the rear view mirrors attached on the front doom. The rear styling of the pulsar 200ss is totally different from the rest of its family members. There is a super cool looking muffler head that looks like a makeover of the Honda’s CBR150R. The same kind of split seat that is present in the pulsar 200NS is present in the pulsar 200SS. Here the tail lamp has a special look that no other bike on the Indian roads have. During the night they appear like a cobra’s head from a certain distance. If we take a close look, it will appear such that a boomerang is mirrored. The tail light along with a pair of the rear indicator lights are built with the highly reliable LEDs. Bajaj auto has made sure that the new Pulsar 200SS should look amazingly sporty and muscular. The fuel tank and the instrumental cluster appear to look the same as that of the pulsar 200NS. The main drawback with the super sports bike are that, they seem to trouble the riders with a back pain on a long run, but here the drawback is rectified by increasing the handle bar to a slightly higher point avoiding the rider to bend more. Performance: As the pulsar 200SS is not launched yet officially, there is nothing much to about its specifications. Bajaj auto has been rolling out the 200SS in a full swing to the dealers across the country. According to the sources, the 199.5cc heart of the bike yields about [email protected] with 18.3Nm torque @8000rpm. Pulsar 200SS is expected to be equipped with a triple spark engine similar to that of the 200NS with improved acceleration. The engine is mated with a 6speed transmission system and has a fuel injection system that is aimed to make this 2-wheeler a more economic one of the pulsar family. Concise: With the new 200cc machine priced between 1.2lakhs-1.3lakhs that is waiting to roll out, Bajaj auto has a greater advantage of scoring a greater profit with this bike that would stand a tough fight with the Honda CBR 150R, Yamaha YZF R15 and KTM Duke 200. So let us await the official launch of the style statement at our Indian market for more information regarding the special features and other specifications. [yop_poll id="3"]
