Bajaj Pulsar 200 NS Review

Bike tested: 2012 Bajaj Pulsar 200 NS

Price OTR Mumbai: Rs. 99,200/-

It was almost 11 years ago, when Bajaj Auto launched the first Pulsar, which changed the face of the Indian motorcycle industry. In the past decade, there have been many versions and facelifts of the Pulsar which kept the bike going strongly to a sales of 50 lakh units. The Bajaj Pulsar has become one of the most recognisable brands in India, with enthusiasts swearing by their bikes. There have been upgrades time and again but the recent one is the most significant. Yes, the Pulsar 200 NS, which is the second generation of the Pulsar, is on the Indian roads. We ride it to find out, if it is indeed a giant leap or not!

Pulsar-200-NS-Review-14

Styling – The Bajaj Pulsar 200 NS is an extremely well styled motorcycle with the right use of muscle and edginess making it a head turner wherever you go. The sharply designed headlight, (which is Benelli inspired), the tank shrouds shooting forward, the sleekly crafted rear fenders, the front muscular mudguard (with a unique color pattern), the aluminum number plate holder, the split grab rails (borrowed from family’s younger sibling, the Pulsar 135) are the stand out points of the Pulsar 200 NS’ styling. The traditional Pulsar twin ‘dagger type’ LED tail light is mounted a bit differently than other Pulsars and makes the rear a bit quirky to our taste.

Pulsar-200-NS-Review-24

The split mudguard, the not so fat looking rubber, an ugly looking saree guard is something we didn’t like. Standard red colored monoshock used with every color is a disappointment. The rear mudguard has been restyled and has a ‘Pulsar’ monogram on it. The hidden exhaust is something that the current Pulsar owners won’t take pleasantly and skipping on the engine belly fairing is also a bad idea. A very Pulsar-ish fact to the styling is that, it does not have any sort of stickers or graphics on it, just 4-valve and 200 NS badges on both sides. The red color which is used on the 200 NS, is not that good as the old Pulsar, which has a fantastic cocktail red. Paint job is good, deep and loads of glitter, a Bajaj forte over the time, which never fails to impress.

    Personally I liked this red color (wine red color) much more than earlier pulsars. I didn’t like earlier pulsars red. I agree strongly that if different colors were used in the monoshock it would be a treat. And yes Saree guard is to be removed if its not of your use but the small saree guard does justice if you require it.

    Test drove this yesterday in New Delhi.. Riding posture is very commuter like.. very upright.. Performance is not as crisp and punchy compared to my 3 year old TVS Apache RTR 180.. Love my Beast.. and still its scaringly fast :)

      Comparing performance of rtr 180 with p200ns is a joke. Its NoWhere in the league of this premium performance product.

      How can u compare Pulsar 200 NS with Apache ??? I know some people don’t like Pulsars that doesn’t mean Pulsars will always be the same it has changed a lot from last 10 years. now its the most advanced bike in 90′s K price list.
      0-100kmph: 9.83 seconds(lot better than any Apache), how much more crisp & punchy people needed at 94,000 Rs.

    • Pulsarboy July 18, 2012, 9:22 am

      Did you forget giving throttle or what, just check 0-60 or 0-100 timings of P200NS, it will anyday show a clean pair of heels to RTR, that too without any effort.

      Reply
      • Faisal Khan July 18, 2012, 11:48 am

        Nish, you simply can’t compare the RTR to the P200 NS. The P200 NS is way faster and is easily the fastest non-FI bike in the country!

          brother I would say I am fan of rtr beast you should know that apache 180 does 0 to 85 in 6 seconds I m taking about beast new model and in proof you can watch video on you tube and by the way ns is good bike and I am confused between two I am going to buy one of them next month

      U have good sense of humour by the way Nish…
      But jokes apart apache is no where in the league..
      I have bought PULSAR 200NS 20 days ago… and had a drag racewith my freinds including 2 apache 180 and a 220..
      and there is no need to tell the results…
      so dnt again compare apaches with 200NS(even if u wish to)…

    @Faisal- i thought the fuel efficiency should be a lot more than the duke 200, i own a duke and the fuel efficiency is very closely similar to 35-40Km/l . since there is triple spark plug i did expect more fuel efficiency from the 200ns.

      Viky, acceleration is very very good. It does 100 km/h in around 10 seconds and FE is around 40 km/l. With ripping and redlining it should be between 35-40 km/l. Very impressive bike indeed.

          Shyam, yes the bike is quite tall. My height is 6 feet 2 and the 200 NS does look small for me. The Duke looks good though! Riders above 5 feet 5 should not have a problem.

    It will be too good, If Bajaj can bring out a better opponent for Full Fairing bikes like R15. that will be a fine treat to all pulsar maniacs where they can dare to park next to an R15. though am happy with my P180 and its performance but i didnt find a better chance to pick an R15 fairing kits when i decided make it more attractive. No wonder guys ll always love to ride hard and fast but the curves and its attractiveness are also required to show off to say “Hae she is my ride”

    • Abhisek July 18, 2012, 9:43 pm

      Agreed shalson they are coming out and it is official news from Bajaj themselves. And about NS they made the best looking sports Naked street fighter. So am happy about it. People are buying NS like anything although its a premium bike and not everyone can maintain 200cc bike. :)

    Hi Faisal,

    Ramzaan mubarak, I had one concern like I am 6ft 1 tall and just wanted to find out that whether 200NS would look good on me, as the only reason why I did not opt for R15 was that it looked too small.
    I am not planning to opt for duke because of mileage and cost otherwise I did love the bike.
    Please suggest!

    Reply
    • Faisal Khan July 24, 2012, 1:20 am

      Thanks Talha. For your height, neither the R15 nor the Pulsar 200 NS will suit much. Get the Duke 200 or the CBR250R.

      Reply
  • Vinay July 23, 2012, 4:58 pm

    Hi Faisal, I tested three different NSs in three different showrooms, and I found that all of them had an insane amount of vibration creeping up through the seat and onto the handlebars once you cross the 4000 RPM mark. This continues upto 7000 RPM after which it smoothens out a bit, but the vibrations are still very present as you cross this range. I’m wondering if this violence will disappear after the first service, or if by some incredible coincidence, I happened to go to the three showrooms in Bangalore which had the most unrefined test bikes of the NS lot. Did you not face similar problems with your test bike?

    Reply
    • Faisal Khan July 24, 2012, 1:22 am

      Vinay, I did not feel vibrations but once I checked the on-board camera, I saw lots of vibrations on it. We did the runs on the smoothest road in Mumbai (Palm Beach). So the Pulsar 200 NS does have very little vibes at high revvs. Test ride bikes are badly abused so higher chances of vibes on them.

      Reply
      • Vinay July 24, 2012, 8:55 am

        Nope! I test rode them the very day they arrived at the showroom. They had run an average of 20 km when I took them out for a spin, which is why I was wondering if the vibes were because they were brand new and not run-in yet. And I rode them on smooth roads too, and these were the kind of vibrations that you really feel through the seat and the handlebars. What surprised me is that the Duke felt like butter in comparison to the NS, though both use essentially the same engine.

        Anyway, I’ll revisit the showroom/s in a couple of months to test ride and vibe-check some bikes that have been run-in. Or if a friend of mine buys one, that’s even better! Hehe!

        • Faisal Khan July 26, 2012, 11:28 pm

          Abhisek, rear options you should get Michelins. If you don’t ride hard or corner hard, you can change the tyres later. Else you should do it right away and you will even get a good value for your old tyres.

      Hi Bharath, glad to meet someone who agrees with my observation. Yes, compared to the 220F, the NS is leagues ahead. I liked everything about the bike except the vibrations like I mentioned, and the quality of switch-gear. Otherwise, I think you can blindly go ahead and buy it like Faisal said. Good luck!

          Hi Manty, I did not red line it. The vibrations I felt were between 4000 and 7000 RPM and were quite violent. The bike got slightly smoother beyond this range. Please read my previous comments above.

    Hi Folks,
    I am not a Pulsar lover at all.
    Hated the handling and the gear shift for the bikes. but this is the best pulsar version I ever drove. Perfect handling and balance, no enigne knocking at 40km on 6th gear.
    Brembo brakes are just the perfect.
    I read your review and planning to get a Black blue colour for the bike.
    I had a test ride, and accelerated above 4000rpm, I did not find the vibrations as hard as described.
    After all, Its a 200cc engine roaring, not a scooty.

Did u find any extra sound in engine ?? coz am facing tat sound in my bike will it be fine after 1st service ?? also the horn sound is very low :( breaking is amazing :) But to be very frank Bajaj have used low quality product on this bike it might be coz of cost reduction . . . .

    For first time I faced competition from R15, and I won…….
    However I didnt have a pillion rider as he had but i was happy to see my PULSAR 200NS was extremely smooth as butter at higher speeds.
    5th and 6th gear were extremely smooth!!!!!!
    Beautiful it was.

    Guys buy 200NS no doubt it is not the old PULSARs , it is Gen X bike…

    i dont think pulsar NS 200 have that power which exist in R15….i have ride 200NS but it didnot gave me that satisfaction which i got frm R15…..bcoz it doesnt loose its control when you ride at the top speed of 138 km/hour……it doesnt produce vibration…and noise…bt i found vibration n instability in PULSAR NS 200 …..so yes YAMAHA…..

    I am Sure Yamaha R15 is a good Bike.
    My Younger Brother has R15 old Model YZF (NOT V2)
    But Being Practical R15 is 17 BHP Vehicle and we have to accep it.
    I have driven it to Tamil Nadu and many times to Kerala from Bangalore and I am sure it cannot match with 23.5 BHP of 200NS
    In Fact I have asked my Bro to ride it for one more year and wait for Pulsar 350 to arrive!!!!!
    Believe me I Used to HATE PULSAR but Once I took a test Ride and I knew I have to Buy it.
    I bought it within Next 5 Days.

    Mileage around 37 KMPL
    I Touched 140kmph Speed (with Pillion Rider) Last weekend and believe me there was a Very negligible vibration.

    And Yes 220 is a good Bike but too many issue are felt while riding is what I have heard…..

    I have never ever Driven it , But I am sure 200NS is worth trying!

      i dont say 200 pulsar NS is totally bad bt like the john’s statement..it depends on rider…and i must say that it can go on higher speed …..bt in my group….we prefer R15….V2.0….it is why bcoz japanease technology is far better than other exists.

    Bought 200 NS on 1st March and soon named it Vanquish cause i don’t love Pulsar. After riding it got to know that this is unlike any other Pulsar available for sale today. Yeah there are some problems like less turning radius (which i got used to after some time). It needs effort in maneuvering the vehicle through crowded roads of Delhi, and I think it’s because of wide handlebars and weight of the Vanquish ( I used to ride Stunner before this and believe me that was extremely flick able). Breaks are too good but i feel because of mass production Bajaj is unable to concentrate on quality because both of the discs rubs to the pads at certain point over a cycle. Come to the fuel Efficiency, while 1st thousand kms when i rode the bike at maximum 48km/h as per the manual it returned me 49 kmpl for the second thousand kms when i rode the bike at 56 km/h it returned me 42 kmpl in city rides. After completing the run-in when i pushed it to limits and kept the rpm needle at 7000 rpm it returned me 30kmpl. On a highway ride of 800 kms recently when i kept the speeds over 80 and below 100 it returned me 43 overall (Calculated through reserve to reserve method) and i am more than OK with these mileage figures because My stunner used to give 40kmpl overall. And these all calculated just because of my mileage obsessed mind like all Indians and because i upgraded from a 125 CC to 200 CC. ( CC Matters :) ). Vibrations are the eseential part of this bike and that is inevitable by any service or other things. Vanquish get butter smooth after 85km/h and i am OK with that because most of the times i keep rolling on highways. The best of Vanquish comes once you cross 5K RPM mark, It pulls like anything and it blows all it drawbacks.

      Biswajit, it’s not normal for bike to heat. To check mileage, simply fill full tank of fuel, ride it for around 100-150 kms and again fill full tank. See how many kms you rode and how much fuel went and divide it.

Not tested the tyre pressure yet. hopefully that solves the problem. While giving delivery the showroom guy told me to check air pressure outside as there was no power at the showroom to run their compressor. Dear Shri rupak have you checked Tyre pressure and has it solved your problem.
