An Indonesian modifier has turned the Bajaj Pulsar 200 NS into a scrambler by changing the fuel tank, rear wheel, seat and exhaust while all other parts remain unchanged.
The Bajaj Pulsar is the most successful range of motorcycles in India which includes a lot of models from different body types. The new motorcycles are also exported in other Asian countries such as Indonesia, Nepal, etc. An Indonesian modifier has modified such a Pulsar 200 NS into a scrambler. The modified motorcycle looks like a proper scrambler which has no relation with the stock 200 NS.
The NS in the Pulsar 200 NS stands for Naked Sport which can nowhere be seen on the modified motorcycle. A classic round headlamp with chrome coating is fitted for the retro look. The muscular fuel tank is replaced by a new fuel tank which looks similar to that of the Royal Enfield Continental GT while the bikini fairing is entirely given up. The new single piece seat perfectly compliments the scrambler appearance of the modified motorcycle.
The stock speedometer, front forks, rear monoshock and both the disc brakes seem to have made it to the modified motorcycle. It retains the same 199.5cc, liquid-cooled engine that powers the Indonesian as well as Indian Pulsar 200 NS. The front wheel also remains unchanged while the rear wheel seems to be bigger than stock. Alloy wheels along with the steel frame are retained in the scrambler. The underbelly exhaust from the 200 NS is replaced with a new free flowing unit.
The modifier was successful in making the Pulsar 200 NS look like a proper scrambler, however parts like a new set of knobby wheels, adjustable suspension, etc. would have given it the capabilities of one. The motorcycle was discontinued last year to make way for AS 200. The company will relaunch the 200 NS after a few months with the fuel injected engine from the RS 200. However, it is still on sale in the Indonesian market with the carbureted powerplant.
