2015 Pulsar RS 200 Road Test
The Pulsar RS 200 is the only bike in its segment to get ABS as optional

The 2015 Bajaj Pulsar RS 200 introduced several new elements on the bike at that price range. With features like full fairing, projector headlamps, LED lights and single-channel ABS, it is the latter that we root for the most, which was a necessary addition on the entry-level sports bike. The second most affordable offering (after the TVS Apache RTR 180) to get ABS as optional, the Pune based manufacturer has now uploaded a video demonstrating the capabilities of the single-channel ABS unit on the RS 200 in gravel and wet road surfaces.

The Bajaj Pulsar Race Sport 200 uses a Bosch sourced single-channel ABS unit that is equipped only to the front wheel. In case of panic braking wherein you tend to jam on both the levers, the ABS unit ensures that brakes are applied in quick succession and does not allow the front wheel to lock up. While the majority would have appreciated a dual-channel ABS unit, which is a lot more safer and better equipped, the front-wheel unit is still a welcome move and does the job reasonably well. The Pulsar RS 200 also comes with a 300 mm front disc brake, the largest in the segment for effective stopping power.

In a recent statement, Bajaj conveyed that almost 50 percent of the Pulsar RS 200’s bookings were for the ABS equipped version, which is certainly commendable considering the fact that buyers need to shell out an extra Rs. 12,000/- for the ABS variant over the standard version. Power figures stand at 24.5 PS and 18.6 Nm of torque from the same 199.5cc single-cylinder engine that is now fuel-injected. Make sure to check out the video below and we certainly hope this encourages more buyers to opt for the ABS equipped version in a bid to be just safer on the road.
