The Bajaj Pulsar 200 NS (Fuel Injection) is strangely available in several overseas market except for its main base in India. Reviews of the Carburettor version of the Pulsar were very positive. The bike was not in my shortlist at the beginning until a friend of mine introduced me to the brand and was surprised that its performance is on par with the more popular and expensive KTM Duke 200.
Riding on the Bajaj has been great fun thus far. I'm doing my best not to ride the bike too hard for the first 1000km. It didn't disappoint when I had to squeeze some power out of the bike to overtake quickly or get out of a tight spot. While the bike looks decent and masculine, the finishing isn't that great. However, I have to bear in mind that the actual cost of this bike is only $5800 (yes, it's considered affordable in Singapore), notwithstanding the stupid crazy $6500 COE or registration tax that we have to pay to the Singapore government. So I'm going to overlook the finishing aspects of the bike and admire the 4-stroke single cylinder engine.
I can't wait to go full throttle on the bike. The bike is able to sprint from 0-60km/hr in 6-7 seconds and cruise at 100-120kph without much effort. Below are some photos of the Bajaj Pulsar 200 NS.
