As per the latest details available, the 2020 Bajaj Pulsar NS200 with a BS6-compliant engine will launch in India this month. Updated several times after its initial launch back in 2012, the NS200 streetfighter will now be available with a fuel-injected engine catering to the more stringent emission norms that will be mandatory in India from April 1, 2020.
Some reports also suggest that the updated motorcycle will be available in the Indian market in a new set of colour variants in addition to getting revised graphics. The motorcycle is expected to feature white/silver fuel tank design in addition to getting different neon detailing on its body panels though there has been no official confirmation received on the revised colour palette for the updated machine.
In addition to this, one can also expect the brand to launch the Pulsar NS200 Fi special edition version in the Indian market that was unveiled back in July 2019 in Colombia. The special edition motorcycle features neon yellow highlights while the under-seat panel at the rear has been equipped with a “Pulsar Mania” sticker.
Apart from this, the “200” decals on the motorcycle remain the same when compared to the standard version of the NS200. The special edition variant of the motorcycle also features additional accessories like rubber pads for the fuel tank, knuckle guards as well as a crash guard.
There has been no information received on the updated power and torque figures of the 2020 Bajaj Pulsar NS200 though one certainly expect a slight reduction in the performance with the addition of a BS6-compliant engine. At present, the 199.5cc, BS4-compliant engine on the NS200 is good for 23.5HP of maximum power and 18.3Nm of peak torque. The engine comes paired to a 6-speed gearbox.
The updated motorcycle is expected to feature the similar disc brake setup at either side mated to a single-channel ABS unit as standard. It is also being rumoured that Bajaj Auto may equip the BS6 model of the NS200 with a dual-channel ABS unit as KTM recently updated the RC 200 and Duke 200 with 2-channel ABS as standard. Once launched in India, one can expect the 2020 Bajaj Pulsar NS200 to be priced around INR 1.25 lakh (ex-showroom).
