Bajaj has been developing a new model secretly; the Pulsar 200 AS was spotted showcasing in Indonesia. Bajaj Auto has been of a reputation of launching their proud products in Turkey rather launching it on the home ground. The Pulsar 200 SS was launched before and now the news of the Pulsar 200 AS. Bajaj Auto seems to have found another market to launch their products before launching them here in India.
The 200 AS is an adventure tourer, where AS stands for Adventure Sport. The 200 AS consists most of the parts like engine, wheels, brakes, shocks, radiator, rear fairing and seats directly shared from the Pulsar 200 NS. The Pulsar 200 AS will have a 220 like head unit with dual headlamps; one will be the regular multi-reflector headlamp and the other a projector with pilot lights on the top corners. A new fuel tank design has been used on this bike which blends well with the new half-fairing.
200 AS has raised handle bars which will give the rider an adventure posture and adventure type handling as well. However the shocks used from the 200 NS, which are shorter in length when it comes to an adventure tourer design, lacks to give the bike a proper adventure tourer stance. Pulsar 200 AS will be competing with the TVS-BMW Adventure Tourer.
