Bajaj Pulsar 200NS experience of Akshay

As team was trying hard to get the all new Bajaj 200NS for a test ride, we very glad to find Mr. from Bangalore who was very to share across his ownership with the Bajaj Pulsar to us. So here is the detailed P200NS interview we had with him.

Tell us something about your previous bikes and the passion you posses.

Akshay:- My history started humbly my mum’s Kinetic Honda ZX, a that was almost as old as me. Learnt on that bike, and have so memories of good times, falls and the rest! Once I my education I needed a bike for commute and my parents agreed to buy me a on the condition that I pay them on a monthly basis. I agreed, and how I ended up buying a yellow CBF Stunner 125.

This is the that got me bitten by the biking It all started with rides to the Nandi Hills and went on to 100km to the Cauvery River. I found the Stunner to be more of a than a highway cruiser, and to get something better. 6 months of and 17,000km on odo later, and after research, I settled on the R15.

I got 45k for the which was the exact down for the R15. Exchanged the Stunner and brought the Yamaha home, to the surprise and amazement of my parents. The 2 years were the hardest for me as I was paying my parents for the Stunner as as paying an EMI for the R15. What a bike!

It was everything I wanted and I ended up it with Race Concepts that made a brilliant even better!

ThisYammy spoilt me with Pulsar 220 power and a fuel efficiency of 40 – 52kmpl depending on riding After numerous 600km+ to Hyderabad, Gokarna, etc. I that the R15 was a bit too taxing on the body due to its suspension and committed riding This is when the urge to to a more comfortable bike over.

2 years of paying had left me without any savings and I had to sell my beloved R15 after 2 and 40,000km of ownership.

Sharat:-  Out of so bikes in the Indian market, motivated you to choose BAJAJ 200NS? What other did you consider buying?

Akshay:-   My were on the CBR250R, with the being touted as a Sports-Tourer. A confirmed that it would be the bike for me! Started calculating requirements and such, but lots of minute issues ensured the 250R would remain a dream at 1,70,000 rupees!

I started thinking of the KTM Duke 200 as it to be the best value-for-money proposition, and always wanted to own a … owning the fully-faired R15. was again not to be as my finance scheme got at the last minute. This is the 200NS finally launched in and I got to see the bike in the flesh.

Now, let me tell you that I learnt riding on my cousin’s 150 Classic way back in 2001, I much of a Pulsar fan and actually the bikes for their crappy and myriad issues. I’d been stories of the 200NS with respect for all the good things I’d hearing about the bike. the bike in the flesh and taking a completely convinced me that was a great product and would my requirements perfectly!

Paid the amount instantly and took of my Emerald Blue Pulsar 200 NS – my Fury! The NS is continually amazing me it’s handling, poise, raw and sheer toughness. This is THE motorcycle for the biking enthusiast, and no two ways about it.

Sharat:-  How has your ownership experience so I am sure you would be the center of out there on the roads.

Akshay:-   I’m on the honeymoon phase of owning and a new bike, and the bike hasn’t at all! 10 days of ownership and to 2000km on odo says it all. not too many people on the road the bike. I got the most number of at traffic signals where would be glancing around and do a double-take on noticing the tall, and good looking bike.

millions of questions on the price, issues, etc. The NS is so good I’m not missing my R15 one bit! This is one I will NEVER sell, how much it has impressed me.

My next bike will be big and I’ve started saving up

Sharat:-  How much did the bike in total and what was your period experience?

Akshay:-   The cost me Rs. 1,00,481/- on-road, . I had to wait for almost 20 days to get the The waiting period was really as I’d sold the R15 and kept dreaming riding away into the on the new steed.

Passed time by review after review on the

Sharat:-   The old pulsars were not great handlers, so this is it a same story, or were you away with its new engineering?

  Like I said earlier, I a big fan of the Pulsar’s and always considered to be clumsy handling, un-refined, machines. This model is a leap for Bajaj and the engineering really shows. I found the more poised and much stable than the R15 around and that really is saying

The bike is almost vibe-free and people will never that they’re riding a product! Awesome motorcycle, must ride to experience engineering at it’s best.

Top Speed

Sharat:-   How does the perform in city conditions and

Akshay:-   Although the bike a short-… engine design, is surprisingly adequate torque at low and rpms! Where the R15 struggled in the the NS pulled away effortlessly, with a pillion. The power is VERY linear, with the delivery progressively getting with the build-up of revs.

7,000rpm onwards you start a strong surge which truly manic from all the way to the 11,000rpm redline! By mounting a camera on tank and taking readout as the reference, the NS leapt 0-100kmph in 9.6 seconds and went on to a mighty 151kmph top speed . On the the bike gets to 100kmph in the 10 seconds, 140kmph in the next 10 and in another 10 seconds. 0-top in 30 seconds now that’s fantastic

The bike can putter around in the city at 4,000rpm in the 6th gear. cruising is best at 60-70kmpl the bike being completely and vibe-free at those speeds, more like a Honda Highest cruising speed making the engine feel is 100-110kmph.

The wind-blast can really be on this bike post though, but that maybe I’m used to the awesome aerodynamics of the R15 at speeds.

Sharat:-   There is talks that its the same KTM 200 with few tweaks, What do you about it? And how different is it with the KTM

Akshay:-   The bike does a few KTM parts, but the engineering is completely Yes – the bore, the exhaust, the stance all similar, but the bike has a completely character altogether! The NS is much relaxed, both in acceleration, cruising and seating posture.

The gears are longer, the bike is more silent and gives fuel efficiency than the This coupled with the 12 liter tank, proper pillion seat and much user-friendly engine makes the a slightly better option the completely maniac and aggressive I guess both bikes to riders of different attitudes.

all, your ride reflect your riding and taste to a large extent!

This is been the first to hose a triple spark Is there any difference which you while riding, from a single or twin(like the older

Akshay:-   There isn’t any in feel, having 3 spark firing away beneath The difference may only be technical, the NS achieve great throttle good fuel economy and emissions. Nothing that feel while actually this monster.


Sharat:-  Coming back to one of main concern- What’s the

Akshay:-   The lowest the NS returned was under very hard and highest has been 38kmpl both sedate city along with a few speed thrown in.

Sharat:-  Let us know attracted you the most after about close to 2000kms.

  I think what I like the about the 200NS is the confidence and you feel when you’re out The bike is so stable, so planted and has performance to leave behind every vehicle on Indian This is a … bikers – being able to commute along with the ability to go on weekends with the exhilarating

Sharat:-  Who should buy this and who shouldn’t? Please advice buyers.

Akshay:-   Since bike is such an all-rounder, it suit everyone from a to a commuter and even to a biking The bike looks good, great and is easy on the pocket The amount of power the bike along with its sheer makes you remember the saying Great Power Comes Responsibility”.

This beauty can get you in trouble easily, but with slightly decent riding anyone can feel and ride a pro! The P200NS is surely a

It was really a very detailed about the new Pulsar 200NS and I like to thank Mr. Akshay for his ownership experience for BikeAdvice
