2023 Pulsar NS200 will be released on March 15 in the Indian market, according to Bajaj Auto. This 200cc roadster-segment motorbike will have a few improvements over the previous model in 2023 and cost Rs. 1,47,347.
What’s new for the Bajaj Pulsar NS200 in 2023?
The most noticeable change on the 2023 Pulsar NS200 is the addition of upside-down front forks in place of the traditional telescopic units. Notably, in the Brazilian market, where this motorcycle is known as the Dominar 200, Bajaj Auto already offered these front forks on the Pulsar NS200. The upside-down front forks should improve the motorcycle’s control and stability even more. A rear monoshock is in charge of the suspension duties. In addition, Bajaj has added dual-channel ABS rather than the single-channel system found on its predecessor. Meanwhile, the halogen headlight, semi-digital instrument cluster, and LED taillight remain on the 2023 Pulsar NS200. It’s worth noting that competitors like the TVS Apache RTR 200 4V and Hero Xpulse 200T 4V come with more premium features like an LED headlight and a Bluetooth-enabled fully-digital instrument cluster.
What hardware is used by the 2023 Bajaj Pulsar NS200?
The hardware modifications are limited to the suspension setup. As a result, the 2023 Bajaj Pulsar NS200 retains a perimeter frame, a 300mm single disc in front, a 230mm rotor in back, and 17-inch alloy wheels on both ends. It has a fuel tank capacity of 12 litres and weighs 158 kilogrammes. Other important dimensions include a 1,363mm wheelbase, 169mm ground clearance, and an 807mm seat height.
Are there any styling changes on the Bajaj Pulsar NS200 in 2023?
While Bajaj Auto has updated the suspension setup and the safety net, the motorcycle retains its previous iteration’s styling. Thus, the headlight retains an aggressive design with a body-coloured cowl, an engine cowl, a muscular fuel tank, split-style seats, a two-piece pillion grabrail, and an underbelly exhaust setup for the 2023 model.
Is the Bajaj Pulsar NS200 mechanically revised in 2023?
The mechanical specifications remain unchanged as well, with the 199.5cc, single-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine remaining in the 2023 Bajaj Pulsar NS200. This motor is linked to a six-speed gearbox and is tuned to produce 24.13bhp at 9,750rpm and 18.74Nm of peak torque at 8,000rpm. While the numbers on the 2023 model remain unchanged, the motorcycle receives hardware updates to comply with OBD2 emission standards. The On-Board Diagnostics System detects and displays system failures on the dashboard.
What products does the 2023 Bajaj Pulsar NS200 compete with?
As previously stated, the 2023 Bajaj Pulsar NS200 is priced at Rs. 1,47,347. In the Indian market, it competes with the TVS Apache RTR 200 4V, Hero Xtreme 200S, Yamaha FZ25, and Gixxer 250.
