Let’s start with the design. The first thing that you will notice is the twin projector ‘bumblebee’ headlamps up front. LED pilot lamps can be seen above it and the LED turn indicators are small and sharp, similar to ones on the KTM dukes. The aggressive design is continued on to the side, where beautifully sculpted split seats and a short side mounted exhaust have been provided. The rear gets sporty ‘floating’ LED tail lamps , which is another one of the RS’s standout feature.
As predicted a single channel Bosch ABS is on offer, but it demands a 12,000 INR premium. Other features include a digital-analogue console (with analog tachometer, digital speedometer, clock, temperature gauge, side stand indicator and service reminder), wide see-through visor and clip-on handlebars. The clip-ons are positioned higher than normal, providing a relaxed, ‘almost’ upright ride posture, improving the comfort on longer rides.
The Pulsar RS200 shares most of its mechanicals with the 200NS , which include the pressed steel perimeter frame and the 199.5cc single-cylinder, 4-valve, triple-spark, liquid-cooled mill. However it has been tuned higher to deliver 24.5 PS at 9750 RPM and 18.6 Nm of torque at 8000 RPM.Fuel injection is also provided. The engine is mated to a six speed transmission.
