Bajaj Pulsar 200 NS FI Teased Launching Soon
Bajaj Auto has shared the first teaser image of their soon to be launched 2017 Pulsar NS 200 on their social network channels. The 200 NS first made its appearance back at in 2012 and for some reason Bajaj decided to discontinue the motorcycle from the Indian market instead of its popularity and impressive sales numbers. However the motorcycle is still exported to some other International markets from India.
Now with the increasing competition from TVS and KTM, Bajaj once again has decided to reintroduce the updated variant of the NS 200 in India. According to the latest reports the updated motorcycle will be launched soon in India and Bajaj has actually made some thorough changes to one of the most popular entry level naked streetfighters.
To begin with the updated 2017 Pulsar 200 NS gets fuel injection instead of carburettor now. The engine too is also completely new; the 194.4 cc single cylinder liquid cooled engine is paired to a 6 speed gearbox now delivers 24.5 PS at 9500 rpm and 18.3 Nm of torque at 8000 rpm. The power output as you all can clearly notice has increased by 1 Ps.
Although we are still not sure about the cosmetic changes the new Pulsar NS200 will receive though but expect it to get perhaps a new duel tone colour option, and a relocated Pulsar logo. There is also a fair chance that Bajaj might provide a single channel ABS as well just like the ones found on their RS200.
There are no details of the prices available yet but expect it to be priced slightly higher than the current bike. However expect the 2017 Pulsar 200 NS to be priced much lower the KTM Duke 200.
We will definitely update you with more details once the motorcycle is launched here in India within the next few weeks.
Bajaj V22 has been rendered
Over the last 15 years, Bajaj has improvised itself a lot in making motorcycles, so much that it has ditched its roots as a manufacturer of India’s first popular scooter and becoming a motorcycle only maker, just like Harley Davidson and Royal Enfield. Some feel that this is actually a huge risk by Bajaj by not existing in the booming scooter market, but Bajaj strongly feels that its motorcycles are capable enough to keep it in the game.
And somewhat it manages to stay true to its belief, as the manufacturer is constantly working on upgrading its product portfolio. Bajaj knows that the market is actually shifting from puny commuters, and to be in the game, it is now expanding its lineup of powerful commuters.
The latest additions of its lineage has been the V15 and the V12 motorcycles that has been successful in striking the chords of hearts of motorcycle enthusiasts and patriots with its INS Vikrant connection. A true marketing masterstroke, the motorcycle’s fuel tank contains the invincible metal of the now decommissioned warship INS Vikrant, which somewhat raises its hype and market value.
An Italian artist who goes by the name Oberdan Bezzi and is also famously called as OBIBOI, has sketched some impressive looks of concepts which might be expected from the Bajaj V stable in the future. They include Roadster, Cafe Racer and Scrambler concepts and all of them have a bigger displacement engine.
2017 Bajaj V12
Bajaj definitely made many Indian bikers happy when they actually launched the V15 commuter in India. This was positioned below the Pulsar range of motorcycles and offered plenty of exciting new features not to mention its one of a kind styling was well appreciated too by many as well.
Quite honestly Bajaj was actually looking for a replacement for their commuter brand Discover which has been here for a long time and quite honestly their sales figures were going Southward due to increasing competition. Bajaj’s new strategy seemed to have worked in their favour because their newest 150 cc commuter surely became a hit in the Indian market. The newly launched 150 cc motorcycle had all the hit recipes like fuel efficient engine, cafe racer type styling, comfortable seats and that powerful 60 watt headlamp at the front.
Now Bajaj wants to expand the ‘V’ brand and while the rumours of a smaller 125 cc motorcycle was going rounds on the internet it seems like the motorcycle finally broke its cover when it was spotted recently at a dealership. The new motorcycle joins Bajaj’s ‘V’ range of motorcycles which currently consists of only one motorcycle. The smaller V12 is more affordable compared to the slightly premium V15 and thus will be in reach of many average Indian bike buyers who wants a .
Update 04.01.2017:-Bajaj launched the V12 in India, the new 125 cc motorcycle which has been positioned below the V15. The details and prices has been updated in this review

Bajaj Silently Launches The V12 Priced At INR. 56,283
This is actually quite surprising that Bajaj did not make any sort of announcement before they introduced the V12 in India. We already have reported earlier that the Bajaj V12 was spotted at some dealerships some time back and looked identical to the more powerful variant.
The Bajaj V12 is priced at INR. 56,283 (ex showroom) and is powered by new powertrain. The V12 houses the 124.5 cc single cylinder, air cooled, DTS-i unit which most probably also powers the Discover 125. The engine is capable of producing about 10.7 PS of peak power at 7,500 rpm and 10.98 Nm of peak torque at 5,500 rpm. The engine is paired to a 4 speed gearbox.
Now to keep the prices in check, Bajaj Auto has done some cost cutting as well. The V12 gets slightly thinner travel forks instead of the fatter 33 mm forks seen on the V15. The V12 also gets 35 watt headlamps instead of the 55 watt headlamps seen on the V15. Lastly the Bajaj V12 features tube based tyres instead of the tubeless tyres found on the slightly more premium V15.However the most disappointing thing is that the V12 does not get front disc brake even as an option. For stopping the V12 motorcycles relies on 130 mm drum brakes at both its front and rear.
The Bajaj V12 measures 2040 mm long, 785 mm wide, 1066 high. The new 125 cc motorcycle will take on other premium 125 cc commuter motorcycles of the Country like the TVS Phoenix and Hero Ignitor.
2017 Bajaj Pulsar 200 NS
Recently we have reported that Bajaj Auto will be re launching their 200 cc streetfighter the Pulsar NS in January 2017. Gaadiwaadi was able to get some exclusive images from the local dealership meet where the updated Pulsar 200 NS for the model year 2017 was showcased.
There were rumours that Bajaj has actually axed their popular naked streetfighter which was launched back in the year 2012 in the year 2016 to make way for the slightly better equipped Pulsar AS200. However that is not the case Bajaj surely did cut the supply of the NS200 but they once again will be relaunching the motorcycle and this time this is definitely better equipped and also gets plenty of styling updates as well.
Now this is definitely a good time to relaunch the naked streetfighter as it can directly take on its biggest rival the TVS Apache RTR 200 4V which has definitely swiped away all the awards and became a hot favourite amongst the Indian biking enthusiast. Now that we know that the updated 2017 Pulsar 200 NS will be launching here in the Indian market next month eher are all the details available at this moment about the new naked streetfighter.

Kawasaki and Bajaj break ties
Back in 2012, our very own ‘Hamara Bajaj’ and the Japanese green team Kawasaki joined hands to market mobikes globally across developing countries, including Asia and South America. This tie-up not only helped Bajaj spread its wings, Kawasaki too started selling and servicing their 650cc and below products in the Bajaj operated pro-biking showrooms in the country, which also happens to see the Austrian KTM motorcycles sharing spaces. Kawasaki also assembled their CKD motorcycles, at the Bajaj Auto’s facility in Chakan.
Four years after this successful partnership, both Bajaj and Kawasaki want to part away for reasons not made official to us. But MotorBeam speculates that this could be because of two reasons. One, Kawasaki has been busy setting up its own dealer network and it is on its way to set its foot firmly in the country. The other could be KTM’s more affordable offerings under the same roof affecting sales for the Japanese.
Kawasaki will move all its sales to its dedicated showrooms selling all their motorcycles in the Indian product line-up. Although, assembly of their CKD products will still be undertaken at Bajaj’s new facility at Akurdi. But, will be handled completely by India Kawasaki Motors, a 100% subsidiary of Kawasaki Heavy Industries, Japan.
Coming to Baja’s point of view, it is an obvious rationale that KTM’s sales gave Bajaj a better financial stability that the Kawasaki’s expensive options. Moreover, Bajaj-KTM have a stronger bond with respect to partnership compliance and KTM is all setting up to bring its premium Husqvarna motorcycles to the Indian stride.
As the KTM Duke series is manufactured in India for global consumption, Husqvarna will also manufacture their models at Bajaj’s Chakan plant near Pune and call India their home. They will hit the showrooms in the first quarter of 2017 across the globe and will be expected to be priced slightly above the KTM Duke 390.
And this break-up is going to benefit both Bajaj and KTM to have more office space to showcase the upcoming offerings and the Husqvarna brand of motorcycles.
This will benefit new Kawa customers as it will make Kawasaki drop a few thousands on their CKD products as Bajaj will no longer take any profit on their sales. You can expect all their bikes at dedicated Kawasaki showrooms including their CBU imports, like before. Ninja ZX-14R and Ninja ZX-10R will continue in those showrooms alsong with the 300 cc and 650 cc bikes. All said, Kawasaki has a huge mountain to cross before it can start competing furiously at the niche segment.
Overseas however, both these brands will still be going strong by selling the Kawasaki Bajaj badged Pulsar through the Kawasaki network in Asian countries and will be doing the same in Brazil as well.
2017 Bajaj Pulsar 180
As we all know, it was Bajaj Auto which recreated the performance oriented motorcycling scenario in India back in 2001 with the launch of two Pulsars, the Pulsar 150 and the Pulsar 180, with the numerical suffixes of theirs depicting the cubic capacity of the engines of the respective motorcycles. While both the versions of the motorcycle were launched with the intention of laying down the foundation of performance motorcycling in India, the character of both the motorcycles were quite different. The Pulsar 150 was on the perfect balance of performance and fuel economy, whereas the Pulsar 180 was the motorcycle to bring out the delirious side of the rider.
With a bigger engine on the board over the Pulsar 150, the Pulsar 180 clearly became the new favorite of motorcycling enthusiasts, as there was nothing in the market at that time which could overpass the Pulsar 180 in terms of displacement and performance. Over the years, the Pulsar 180 has been given a series of cosmetic and mechanical advancements, in parallel to the Pulsar 150. However, with the advent of more and more refined and powerful motorcycles in the space of 150-250cc category, the Pulsar 180 soon began to show its age and began to feel a bit dated and underpowered in front of its contemporary competition
For the year 2017, Bajaj has given a mild update to the Pulsar 180 in order to bring this once-a-game-changer back into the game of competition. The new Pulsar 180 now sports a few minute cosmetic and mechanical changes as well as a couple of equipment additions, which have made the motorcycle look a bit more premium than before, if not drastically. Here’s a brief review of the latest version of the Bajaj Pulsar 180:-
List of all new mass oriented bikes which got launched in 2016
Like every passing year, the year 2016 too has proven to be one year which has only been progressive enough to make the Indian two wheeler market more mature and versatile. Almost all the bike makers of India did came up with something which was revolutionary and game changer for the price at which they are offered.
In this feature story, we are going to discuss all those significant all new bike launches in the mass oriented segments of the Indian two wheeler market, with some of them have been build up from scratch and are only redefining the segments and creating new records for value for money. Following are those all new bike launches meant for the common masses, with the criteria being sub-500cc category and below the price point of Rs. 2.5 lakh:-
Bajaj Pulsar 200 NS To Go On Sale Once Again From Mid January 2017
Bajaj Auto is all set to reintroduce the Pulsar 200 NS in the Indian market from mid January 2017 onward. The home-grown two wheeler manufacturer decided to withdraw the motorcycle from the Indian market in the month of April 2016 in order to promote and make room for two of their newest motorcycles the Pulsar AS150 and the AS200. The AS200 is the same NS200 under the skin but is well equipped and slightly more premium than the Pulsar NS200. However Bajaj continued to export the motorcycle to the markets of Latin America where the product is quite popular.
Now according to the recent reports the Bajaj Pulsar 200 NS is once again making a comeback in the Indian market and it will go on sale from mid January 2017 onward. The updated Pulsar 200 NS is expected to get BSIV engine upgrade and that will perhaps be its biggest update.
As far as the other changes are concerned expect the motorcycle to get some new cosmetic updates which might include new colour shades and graphics. The rest of the styling will be identical to the old motorcycle. Another big inclusion will come in the form of addition of new single channel ABS system just like the ones found in the Pulsar RS200. Unfortunately the naked streetfighter won’t be getting duel channel ABS system like the ones seen on the new Dominar 400.
As far as the powertrain is concerned expect the upgraded BSIV 199.5 cc, liquid cooled, 4 valve, single cylinder triple spark unit which has been sourced from the Duke 200 produces the same 23.52 PS of peak power at 9,500 rpm and 18.3 Nm of peak torque at 8,000 rpm. The engine is paired to 6 speed gearbox.
Expect the new updated 2017 Bajaj Pulsar 200 NS to get slight price hike when it finally launches here in January 2017.
Comparison: Bajaj Pulsar 220F vs Hero Karizma
No matter how advanced and fast-forward the Indian motorcycling scenario may have become, the credits to the growth of the performance oriented segments in the 21st century for the mass market will always be given to the two home-grown brands, Bajaj Pulsar and Hero (the then Hero Honda) Karizma. Ever since the beginning, these two brands have created quite a huge fan following which is easily commendable for something which has been developed wholly from scratch. While the Pulsar with its 150cc and 180cc siblings clearly made Indians think beyond their bread and butter 100-125cc commuters, it was the Karizma which forced the more mature enthusiasts to have that essential craving for a more refined, bigger and wholesome experience of two wheeler motoring with its bigger stance.
In 2007, the Karizma finally got a direct rival in the form of Bajaj Pulsar 220 – a motorcycle which intended to change the scenario of performance oriented motorcycling with its feature rich package and exhilarating performance. The arrival of the Pulsar 220 on the block began to make the Karizma a thing of the past and actually dated. Though it’s 2016, and both these motorcycles have come a long way as evolutionary packages. But then, one thing is still common between both these motorcycles – at the price of a premium 150cc motorcycle, these home grown 220cc machines promise a bit more value for money performance package.
Now, much has been said about both the motorcycles in the years gone – while the Pulsar 220F is still touted as one of the easiest and rider friendly entry level performance motorcycle even after these years, the Karizma was given a thorough facelift by Hero as its whole new flag bearer model. The Bajaj Pulsar 220F has recently been given a minute facelift, which once again has brought the motorcycle back to the limelight. Though these motorcycles are now existing in the Indian market for quite a long time now, which make them pretty dated in the first impression in front of the new age premium 150cc offerings from the Japanese makers, but make no mistake, as these two motorcycles are one of the most underrated machines in the price bracket they belong to, as they bring the best ratio of performance to price in this bracket.
In this feature story, we are going to compare the Bajaj Pulsar 220F and the Hero Karizma to find out which one of these two make the better home-grown quarter liter semi-faired sport tourer. Here we go:-

The engine is paired to 6 speed gearbox. Besides the powerful engine the Domianr 400 also gets full LED Headlamp setup as well which also features AHO (auto headlamp on) feature.

Watch Bajaj Dominar 400 Drag Races KTM Duke 390: Video
Bajaj has launched the Dominar 400 on 15th December 2016 In India. This motorcycle happens to be their most powerful product on offer till date and also the fastest. Recently we were able to get our hands on this exclusive video which shows the newly launched Dominar 400 drag races the KTM Duke 390 on the street.
We all already know by now that the Duke 390 and the Dominar400 uses the same 373 cc, single cylinder liquid cooled, fuel injected power mill. While the engine produces 44 Hp of peak power and 35 Nm of peak torque on the Duke 390, it produces little less power on the Dominar 400. The same unit has been incorporated with Bajaj’s DTS-I technology and it produces 35 Hp of peak power and 35 Nm of torque. The engine is paired to a 6 speed manual gearbox. Just like the Duke the Dominar 400 also gets slipper clutch as well which helps in quick downshifting from high revs.
Here in this video you can watch the Dominar 400 races with the KTM Duke 390 and as you can clearly watch that although the Dominar 400 is less powerful as well as heavier than the Duke but it still manages to keep up with the Duke 390 which is not only powerful but also lighter at the same time.
Although Bajaj claims that The Dominar 400 has a top speed of 148 km/h mark but here in this video you can watch the motorcycle surprisingly hitting a top speed of 168 km/h (which can be a speedo error as well).
Comparison of premium commuters – Bajaj Pulsar LS 135 vs Hero Achiever vs Yamaha SZ-RR vs Honda Unicorn
In the last couple of years, the Indian market of two wheelers has seen an upward growth in terms of both sales numbers as well as maturity. Talking about the latter aspect, the urban Indian buyer is gradually beginning to think beyond the sole factor of fuel efficiency, as he wants something more from his machine – factors like comfort, features, added power and a bit more muscle in the machine he rides. For all these factors, it is the segment of entry level 150cc commuters which, in these days, is serving them in the most apt way. This particular category of motorcycles may not serve the fuel economy of a 100/110/125cc motorcycle, but then, it surely gives the consumer a feel of riding a bigger motorcycle, without sacrificing much on his pocket.
The oldest player of this field, Honda CB Unicorn, continues to impress its target audience with its no-nonsense approach towards design, strengthened by its robust build quality, refinement and the credit of introduction of the technology of rear monoshock in the Indian market. Yamaha also opened its cards by launching the SZ-RR Version 2.0 below the FZ range, which serves as its most affordable 150cc offering. And then, recently, Hero gave a comprehensive makeover to its underdog, the Achiever, which claims to have become much more desirable and better in its new avatar.
Finally come Bajaj Auto, which has the most versatile lineup of 150cc motorcycles in the Indian market. But then, it offers a very unique product in the market which offers the performance and features of the 150cc motorcycles aforementioned above, but at a price of a 125cc motorcycle. This product is the Bajaj Pulsar 135 LS, the only 135cc motorcycle in the country today, which aims to take all the lower positioned 150cc motorcycles. Which one of these emerges out to be the best bet? Let’s find out:-
2017 Bajaj Pulsar 135 LS
As odd it may sound, the segment of 135cc motorcycles has always been one unique category of motorcycles which may have seen a very limited number of motorcycles belonging to it, but then, each and every motorcycle which has existed in this space has gone unnoticed for most of the times, despite of the sheer value they command. It all started with the Hero Honda Ambition, which was soon followed up by Bajaj Auto, which launched a couple of motorcycles with this engine configuration, one of which is the Pulsar 135 LS.
Currently existing as the only 135cc motorcycle in the Indian two wheeler market, the Pulsar 135 LS makes a strong case for itself by being the most affordable motorcycle which sports the Pulsar moniker. When it was launched way back almost half a decade ago, it screamed a lot of value for offering edgy styling and premium features at a price of a premium 125cc motorcycle. After existing in the market in an almost unchanged manner, the Pulsar 135 LS has recently received its first proper facelift, bringing it back in the game of sports oriented commuters. Here’s our comprehensive review of the all new Bajaj Pulsar 135 LS:-
2017 Bajaj Dominar 400
Bajaj did not participated at the 2016 Auto expo but they did leave quite a huge impact at the 2014 Auto expo where they showcased two of their latest concept motorcycles, the SS400 and CS400. Bajaj already launched the smaller variant of the SS400 popularly known as the RS200 which is powered by a 199.5 cc, single cylinder liquid cooled engine.

Now that Bajaj have already launched the RS200 it was time for them to plan something big in order to enter and dominate a new segment.
Besides the SS400 the other concept which was showcased at the 2014 Auto show was called the CS400. Compared to the SS400 the CS400 definitely looked more like cruiser and it was powered by a 400 cc power mill.

The motorcycle was supposed to be priced aggressively which will make it accessible for many motorcycle enthusiasts who wants to own a powerful motorcycle, it definitely is feature loaded which includes powerful headlamps, more informative digital instrument cluster and above all an ABS system for the safety of the rider.

They already introduced the 2017 semi faired Pulsar 220F in India which gets few cosmetic updates and a BSIV engine upgrade. Now they also launched the updated Pulsar 135, 150 and the 180 as well. While reports also states that Bajaj will also update the AS200 variant with the BSIV compliant engine just like the Pulsar 220F and the Avenger range.
Unfortunately Bajaj has decided not to make too many changes to the overall motorcycle and surprisingly the Pulsar 150 hasn’t actually received the BSIV engine upgrade as well so the motorcycle still carried forward the old powertrain.

After launching the Pulsar brand Bajaj introduced the Pulsar 220 which was equipped with plenty of modern features and also was powered by their then most powerful engine. To begin with, the Pulsar 220 was equipped with projector headlamps which were very first in its segment; the motorcycle also featured rear disc brakes as well and monoshock absorbers. Apart from the rear disc brakes the Pulsar 220 also came with clip on handlebars which too were something new for this segment at that time.
Now as the time progressed there were plenty of new changes made to this particular motorcycle and if we are not too wrong this surely is still counted as one of the most popular Pulsars ever. The Pulsar 220 is popular amongst the crowd for its handling characteristics. The semi faired motorcycle is nimble in the city traffic and stable at high speeds.
