Handling

Apart from adding to the looks and muscle to the front of the Pulsar 200 NS, the perimeter frame allows for sharp, nimble and confident handling along with better cornering stability due to higher lateral stiffness. The Pulsar 200 NS chassis comprises of a steel perimeter frame and a rectangular tube section swing arm that offers higher torsional rigidity The low slung central muffler & the tightly packaged Nitrox mono shox ensures low & central CG position.

The almost 50:50 weight distribution helps in effortless maneuvering curves and substantially improving high speed and straight line stability.

Performance

The Pulsar 200NS is loaded with technology that has boosted performance. Sitting in the saddle takes you straight to the next generation of biking. The revolutionary Triple spark technology provides unprecedented performance, efficiency and lower emissions. And when coupled with the 4-valve engine - provides better power, throttle response and pick-up at all engine speeds. Keeping this power mill running smoothly is a Liquid cooling system that ensures longer engine life, smoother engine sound and no power fading or overheating. Add to this is a 6-speed gearbox and you are in biking heaven. The Pulsar 200NS manages to dish out peak power of 23.5 Ps @ 9500 rpm and a healthy torque of 18.3 Nm @ 8000 rpm. It boasts of a power to weight ratio of 162 Ps per ton! No wonder it can accelerate from 0-60 in 3.61 sec and 0 – 100 in 9.83 sec.

Styling

The NS in the name stands for “Naked Sports”. One look at the Pulsar 200NS justifies the claim that it is one of the best looking street fighters around. The body has been sculpted with careful attention to detail - from the foot pegs and the grips on the handle bar to the backlit switches. Every aspect of the bike has been crafted to ensure that the aggressive and muscular look of the Pulsar is married with the next generation of motorcycling design.

The upright riding position on the Pulsar 200NS makes it perfect for city riding and also for a spin on the twisties.

Triple Spark Technology

Three spark plugs provide unprecedented performance and efficiency - Fast and complete combustion at part load conditions results in better fuel efficiency and ensures lower emissions. The high performance triple spark engine, controlled by an advanced Electronic Control Unit, is the technology of the future.

4-Valve

The 4-valve engine facilitates induction of more quantity of charge (air-fuel mixture) and complete evacuation of all burnt gases. This results in increased engine performance – power, throttle response and pick-up at all engine speeds.
4-valve engines can be revved to much higher RPMs, without any engine strain, allowing the rider to experience superior performance.

Liquid Cooling

The high performance Pulsar 200 NS engine is kept cooled using liquid coolant, which is better at heat dispension in the engine as compared to an air cooled engine.
Liquid cooling ensures that there is no power fading due to overheating and results in longer engine life and the coolant provides for a muffling effect which smoothens engine noises even at high RPMs.

6 Speed Gear Box

The smooth shifting 6-speed gearbox is perfectly mated with the powerful 4 valve, triple spark, 200cc engine ensuring optimal use of the wider range of power delivery.
