The Bajaj Pulsar 200 SS was recently spotted in Ooty, which means the company has finally started extensively testing its products. There were two 200 SS spotted with two 200 NS accompanying them. The Pulsar 200 SS is basically a fully-faired version of the 200 NS which is already on sale. Bajaj Auto is going to position this as a sports bike. After looking at the pictures, it is pretty easy to make out that the motorbike has a very compact and sporty stance. Bajaj is testing the bike thoroughly throughout the country to check its durability, fuel efficiency and performance over various roads and weather conditions.
The Pulsar 200 SS will come in two variants; the base version won’t get ABS and the top version will feature ABS as standard. There is also a high possibility of Bajaj Auto tweaking the engine to extract some more juice out of it. Since Bajaj is testing the bike in Ooty, we expect it to carry fuel injection. This bike also gets new mirrors and a new tail light. The instrument cluster will feature tall clip-on bars and a large RPM meter with a digital speedo, which is the same as the Pulsar 200 NS.
Currently, the engine that powers the Pulsar 200 NS produces 23.17 BHP of power and 18.3 Nm of torque. Since the weight of this motorbike will get increased due to the size of the fairing, we are expecting Bajaj to tune the engine to produce a slightly higher power output. The Bajaj Pulsar 200 SS is expected to be launched in the next couple of months. The Pulsar 200 NS costs approximately Rs. 83,000 (ex-showroom, Mumbai), so the 200 SS is expected to cost slightly more at around Rs. 1.05 lakhs (ex-showroom).
