Bajaj Auto aims high with Pulsar RS 200

Bajaj Auto on Thursday launched the much awaited sport bike Pulsar RS 200 priced at Rs 1.19 lakh for the non-ABS variant and Rs 1.31 lakh for the ABS (anti-lock braking system) version (ex-showroom Karnataka).

Briefing reporters through video conferencing, Bajaj Auto President (Motorcycle Business) Eric Vas said, “The super sports segment today consists of 10 brands from different manufacturers which has less than one per cent share of the motorcycle market. And this bike is all set to re-define and expand this segment as much as the original Pulsar did in the sports segment way back in 2001. We are targeting to sell 2,500 units per month across India.”

The Pulsar RS 200 unleashes 24.5 PS power and claims to have a top speed of 141 km/hr. The market share of Bajaj Auto till today is around 17 per cent in the motorcycles segment.
With eight models of Pulsar (135 cc, 150 cc, 180 cc, 220, 200 cc [Naked Sport], 200cc [Race Sport], today Pulsar sells more than 55,000 units every month in the domestic sports motorcycle market with a market share of 43 per cent, making it India’s No.1 sports bike for 14 years in a row, the company claimed.

Current colour options include yellow and red only. The bike is now available at select dealerships. Bajaj Auto has 650 dealers in India, out of which 35 are in Karnataka.
