According to the latest details available, the BS6 2020 Bajaj Pulsar RS200 is expected to launch in India soon. Since the motorcycle is already equipped with a fuel-injected engine in its BS4 avatar, the updated variant of the motorcycle will only be imparted with minor mechanical changes to comply with the upcoming BS6 emission norms that will be applicable in India from April 1, 2020.
Coming to the cosmetic changes, the 2020 model of the Pulsar RS200 is expected to be updated with minimally revised graphics. In addition to this, the brand is also expected to offer the BS6 variant of the motorcycle in new colour schemes. As of now, there has been no detailed information received on the 2020 colour palette for the BS6-compliant Pulsar RS200.
Apart from the new graphics and colours, the BS6 variant of the RS200 will remain the same as the BS4 version and will feature a projector headlight setup mated to unique LED DRLs at the front. The rear profile of the sports motorcycle is also expected to remain the same and feature the similar tail light unit. The motorcycle will further feature 17-inch alloy wheels shod on tubeless tyres at either side.
Coming to the mechanical changes, the motorcycle is expected to feature an updated catalytic converter to comply with the BS6 emission norms. The 199.5cc single-cylinder liquid-cooled engine will now be BS6-compliant while the power and torque values are expected to be tweaked a bit when compared to the 24.5HP and 18.6Nm offered by the BS4 version. The engine will remain mated to a 6-speed gearbox.
The braking power will be offered by the similar disc brakes setup though the updated motorcycle is expected to feature a dual-channel ABS unit as standard. In addition to this, the suspension setup will also remain the same when compared to the BS4 version with telescopic forks at the front and a Nitrox mono-shock absorber at the rear.
Once launched in India, the BS6 2020 Bajaj Pulsar RS200 is expected to get a premium of INR 10,000 – INR 15,000 over its BS4 version which is presently available in the market at a price tag of INR 1.41 lakh (ex-showroom).
