The Bajaj Pulsar 200NS/NS200 is a sports bike made by Bajaj Auto. The NS stands for Naked Sport. The Pulsar 200NS/NS200 has a single-cylinder, four-stroke, triple spark-ignition & liquid-cooled engine. It uses a pressed steel perimeter frame and a box section swingarm, an underbelly exhaust, and rear nitrox-charged mono-shock suspensionBajaj Auto launched Pulsar 200NS in 2012. Bajaj Auto later launched Pulsar AS 200 in 2015, discontinuing the 200NS. The company relaunched the 200NS in 2017 as NS200 and the motorcycle is now available with single channel ABS from Bosch with a 300mm disc instead of the 280mm disc the non-ABS variant gets. The braking system is the same that can be found on the Pulsar RS200 and gets RWLP. After the launch of the NS200 the Pulsar AS200 was discontinued.
The Pulsar NS200 is currently the most selling performance bike in India.
The Bajaj Pulsar is a motorcycle brand owned by Bajaj Auto in India. The two wheeler was developed by the product engineering division of Bajaj Auto in association with Tokyo R&D,and later with motorcycle designer Glynn Kerr. Currently there are six variants available, with engine capacities of 135 cc, 150 cc, 180 cc, 200 cc, 220 cc and 400 cc (Renamed Dominar before release). Earlier it was also offered with a 200 cc DTS-i oil cooled engine, which now has been discontinued. Instead a new version Pulsar 200NS was launched in 2009. However Pulsar 200NS production was discontinued in August 2015 (reintroduced in early 2017 with BS IV Emission compliance and renamed the NS200). With average monthly sales of around 86,000 units in 2011, Pulsar claimed a 2011 market share of 47% in its segment. By April 2012, more than five million units of Pulsar were sold.Before the introduction of the Pulsar, the Indian motorcycle market trend was towards fuel efficient, small capacity motorcycles (that formed the 80–125 cc class). Bigger motorcycles with higher capacity virtually did not exist (except for Enfield Bullet with 350cc and 500cc variants). The launch and success of Hero Honda CBZ in 1999 showed that there was demand for performance bikes. Bajaj took the cue from there on and launched the Pulsar twins (150cc and 180cc) in India on 24 November 2001. Since the introduction and success of Bajaj Pulsar, Indian youth began expecting high power and other features from affordable motorcycles.
The project faced internal resistance, reservations by McKinsey & Company and doubts on its effects on Bajaj's relation with Kawasaki. The project took approximately 36 months for completion and cost Bajaj ₹ 1 billion.
The original Pulsar came with a 150 cc air-cooled, single-cylinder, petrol, spark-ignited four-stroke engine which made 11.8 HP of maximum power. It featured a single spark plug to ignite the air-fuel mixture fed from a carburetor, simple spring shock absorbers, round headlamp dome and 1,265 mm wheelbase. Disc brakes as standard equipment was a novelty in Indian motorcycles of the early 2000s. Other standard features were parking lights and an aircraft-type fuel tank lid.
In mid-2001, the Indian Army ordered 1500 Bajaj Pulsars for its defense personnel.
The 180 cc version made 15 HP of maximum power and came with a twin-tone horn, which was optional equipment on the 150 cc version. Electric Start (ES) was offered as standard feature in the 180 cc model and optional on the 150 cc model.
The second generation Pulsars featured Bajaj Auto's newly developed DTSi technology, which increased the power rating of both versions by 1 hp (0.75 kW) each and also increased fuel economy. This model also introduced a new headlamp assembly, 1,320 mm wheelbase, and standard twin-tone horn and trip meter.
In 2005, Bajaj launched Pulsar 150. The bike was offered with 17-inch (430 mm) alloy wheels as standard option, and the stance was also lowered by about 12 mm. It was the first time any bike maker in India had offered 17-inch (430 mm) profile wheels at the rear. The fuel tank now had a capacity of only 18 litres. The power output was now further increased to 13.5 hp (10.1 kW) @ 8500 rpm for the 150 while it increased to 16.5 hp (12.3 kW) @ 8500 rpm for the 180. The rear shock absorbers were now gas-filled Nitrox absorbers.
