Bajaj Pulsar 200

Hi Guys, I’ve searched the web, however there are no proper reviews on the Bajaj Pulsar 200, if there were any like the ones I found, they mostly came from India, and to be honest, some of their slang doesn’t really connect with us in Singapore.

So here it is, I’ll try to keep it up to date as I collected my bike yesterday (15/8/09 SAT)

I’ve attached a picture, but below are my personal views on the bike, you can choose not to read them if you like and just see the pic. Or enjoy reading!

Brief history of my rides: Yamaha Diversion 900, Yamaha 750 (The Old TP bike used by TP), Honda CB750 (The Old Military Bike), Suzuki GSX-R SRAD 750 (ugly 1997 version), Honda Super 4 Spec 1 (ugly ass exhaust type), Honda Wave S (wah. S sia. ), then Finally Bajaj Pulsar 200.

First thing when you hear about BAJAJ, you start wondering, is it reliable originating from INDIA? I know I know, everyone will say Japanese Brands of bikes have been around for ages and are freaking reliable, that I won’t deny. My main priority right now is to find out for myself, whether this bike can make it in Singapore.

So being open minded, I decided to shelve out the payments and help fellow riders/singaporeans with giving them more info about this bike. On with the review! (I downed 1.5k, 3yrs of 150 a month, you do the math, insurance is 300, road tax standard as it is a 2B bike)

LOOKS: 1st thing, 3 colours to choose from and I got mine at Universal Motors, Black, Red or Blue. I took Black cause of my preference but to be honest, the other 2 colours aren’t that bad as well, its just a matter of your own taste. The 1st thing you’ll notice about the bike are the twin LED rear vertical brake lights, you can’t deny that they look kind of cool and they do their job.

The seats are separated like Honda NSR’s but the quality isn’t really proper, meaning the covers of the seats feel cheap. There’s even handle grabs for the rear pillion, but they are very small and only give the bike a cool look, not really functional cause MAN hands like mine can’t really grab them (I tried), even a girl would have/had problems grabbing them (again I got a girl and asked her to try) so you’re better off with a rear box to let the pillion rest his/her back on.

Taking out the seats are a pain in the ass, not that bad though but cumbersome, you have to unlock a panel using your key at the left side of the rider’s seat, pull a panel off and then, amazingly, there are 2 cables to pull, one for the rider, the other for the pillion’s seat, there is only space to put a small tool kit which was provided by BAJAJ, and maybe parking coupons. But you’re better off not putting it there cause IT IS stupid and troublesome to try to get to your coupons opening the panel, pulling the cables etc etc etc.

Haiz. Plus unlike a SUPER FOUR or WAVE, the storage space under the seats are of a ”CLOSED” concept, meaning nothing would fall through the bike if you stored stuff there. However for the BAJAJ PULSAR 200, if you were to put coupons inside the pillion seat for example, they would most likely fall through while riding as there are openings which even allow you to see the tyres, so not safe to put anything there actually.

The muffler looks wise, isn’t any aftermarket cool pipe, but its presentable, and please let me know IF there are any aftermarket exhausts, I certainly would like to try them, but as for the stock version, it’ll do just fine actually, no worries or bad points about that.

The display panel of the bike where the odometer, fuel gauge (electronic ah kinda of cool) mileage all are easily readable and the backlight came in ORANGE. And there is a cool white light behind all your small little icons around the starter button, signal light etc etc, really looks nice at night

There are 2 small front tank fairings at each side of the tank near the logos, gives it a street fighter effect, much cooler than the YBR but there are definitely better looking ones on some SUPER FOURS I’ve seen while riding, again no complaints.

Oh yah, they installed crash bars at the side around the engine block due to my request as its a new bike, prevention is better than cure eh, they don’t look like the big ugly stupid ones you get in riding schools as they are smaller and blend in with the bike, but it would definitely look way cooler without them.

Rims are 5 spoked, black, nice, but would like to find other 3 spoke rims to make the bike look sportier though. Any recommendations? Tyres, some funky Indian brand which I’ll run in then get proper Bridgestone ones, the guy said they’d cost around 180 for a pair.

Not that bad, but hopefully we all could find cheaper ones eh.

Suspension at the rear is twin, black. Nothing special, AFTERMARKETS here I come again. Front suspension again nothing special.

Overall, I definitely would say, leaving it stock does the rider no harm, affecting his/her coolness level, but its up to you really what you do with the looks, adding small nick nacks here and there. Mine’s a project that will take time.

Next post will be on the riding, mileage, and if any (pray to GOD) problems.
