The engine comes mated to a six-speed gearbox. This is the fastest Bajaj bike after the Dominar 400. The front brakes are bigger with a 300 mm disc than the 280 mm found on the NS, rear brakes remain the same,  with a 230mm disc. There is an option of ABS, which is very good news, as there are many higher priced international motorcycles in the market,  who do not offer this feature at all.

2017 Bajaj Pulsar RS200 Design

The 2017 Pulsar RS200 minor updates. This includes two new paint shades. The alloy wheels remain the same but het a new blue collar on the front wheel, to make it look sporty. The tyres also remain the same. The suspension too is the same, without any tweaks. The ride and handling characteristics of the bike have been good, though not the best. The 2017 Bajaj Pulsar RS200 will continue to offer ABS. The regulations next year will make ABS mandatory as well. The improvisations Pulsar RS200 will make it a more desirable bike.

Bajaj Pulsar RS200 headlamp

2017 Bajaj Pulsar RS200 Instrumentation

Instrumentation remains the same as the earlier model. It includes a big analogue tachometer and a digital speedometer, with regular indicators of fuel, turn & high beam. The handlebar sits tall, has good grips with bar ends, the lever positioning is fine too. The rear view mirrors could have been of better quality. They are actually worse than some entry level motorcycles.

Also, the field of vision is very limited. The 13-litre fuel tank is well shaped and has good padding for thighs. Seats are comfortable, providing sufficient cushioning. Riding posture on the RS200 is quite upright, due to the raised handlebar.  This is not sporty but suits everyday riding.

2017 Bajaj Pulsar RS200 Performance

The 2017 Bajaj Pulsar RS200 now comes with a BS-IV complaint engine. Coming to the performance, the RS200, it weighs a full 20kgs more than the NS. However, in terms of refinement, the RS is a step forward, though little vibrations are present beyond 7000rpm.  As far as acceleration is concerned, the 2017 Bajaj Pulsar RS200 is not in the league of the KTM RC 200, that punch is missing. What I enjoyed though was revving the bike to hear the exhaust note. I liked it.  It’s deep and sporty.

The ride quality is good and the suspension setup is optimal for tarmac as well as bad roads. Handling is not its forte and the bike is not too agile,  though straight line stability is good. The bike that we had was a non-ABS version so couldn’t check on that feature.  However, the brakes provide adequate stopping power.

The projector headlamps are powerful and add that extra glam to the RS200’s styling. This is the first full fairing bike from Bajaj and will be one of the best Pulsars for sure, even the pricing is very aggressive. After speaking to the dealership, we learnt the ABS version has received more enquiries and bookings. This is a signal that customers are evolving fast and desire newer technologies.
