Bajaj Pulsar 200NS

Top Speed (kph)

Fuel Efficiency (km/l)

Without a shadow of a doubt, the Bajaj Pulsar 200NS is the best 200cc motorcycle in the world in terms of value for money. Yes. I said it. The best in the world. You won’t get any other 200cc motorcycle anywhere that is as modern, well built, practical and reliable all for the price the Pulsar 200NS is available at.

A measure of its pedigree is thte fact that it shares and engine with KTM’s Duke 200. However, Bajaj’s interpretation of a naked street bike based on this engine is nothing short of amazing: Liquid cooling  makes it more powerful than other air or oil cooled competitors, a 6 speed gearbox gives options on the road and a perimeter chassis means the handling is fantastic and it is the crowning feature of this bike.

This bike has been so successful that Bajaj has created the Pulsar AS200 and Pulsar RS200 based on the 200NS platform.
