Bajaj Pulsar NS200 ABS Launched; Price – Rs 1.08 Lakh, No changes in specifications, mileage, top speed, 0 to 100 kmph and features
Bajaj Auto Ltd, one of the highest selling motorcycle manufacturers in India, has launched the ABS version of its NS200 streetfighter motorcycle. The new Bajaj Pulsar NS200 ABS has gone on sale with an ex-showroom price of Rs 1.08 lakh in New Delhi. The introduction of the ABS technology has made the bike Rs 12,600 costlier than the standard version. Other than the launch of the ABS, there is absolutely no other change in the bike. This means that the specifications, mileage, top speed, 0 to 100 kmph time and features are exactly the same as before. The launch of this motorcycle is expected to be followed by a fuel injection version. The launch of the ABS model will be followed by the FI version.
The Pulsar NS200 was earlier known as the 200 NS, when it was launched many years ago in 2012. Subsequently, Bajaj felt it appropriate to discontinue the model to make room for the Pulsar AS200. The AS200 was discontinued and the 200 NS came back to life as the NS200 in 2017. With the launch of the ABS model, the NS200 becomes the cheapest Pulsar model to offer this important safety tech.
