Confirmed: BS6 2020 Bajaj Pulsar RS200 Has Twin ABS

The Pulsar RS200 is the flagship model in Bajaj’s Pulsar family and it is the only fully-faired motorcycle in the manufacturer’s line-up. Marketed as the fastest Pulsar yet, the Pulsar RS200 is designed to be a compact sportsbike.  Bajaj Auto has picked up speed in launching the BS6-compliant variants of its motorcycle portfolio in the markets. Since the new emission norms have been commenced from April 1, 2020, the brand has revealed all the feature updates offered to its revised BS6 portfolio.

The brand has also updated its official website with the BS6 price tags of the motorcycles though contrary to the official website, the flagship motorcycle from the brand, Bajaj Pulsar RS200 is now equipped with a dual-channel ABS unit as standard. The official website of the brand still lists the BS6 Bajaj Pulsar RS200 with a single channel ABS though a price list availed from an authorized Bajaj dealership confirms that the motorcycle is now available to the customers with Twin ABS.

The 199.5cc, liquid-cooled, 4-valve, fuel-injected, BS6 engine is now capable of offering maximum power of 24.5HP at @ 9750 rpm and a peak torque of 18.7 Nm @ 8,000 rpm. The engine remains mated to a 6-speed gearbox. The updated motorcycle offers a similar power figure when compared to the BS4 version while the torque has been increased by 0.1Nm.

Apart from the updated engine, the motorcycle remains cosmetically unaltered. The addition of an extra catalytic converter, oxygen sensor and more to comply with the BS6 emission norms has made the kerb weight of the motorcycle to increase by 2kgs.

Cosmetically, the Pulsar RS200 is the most aggressive-looking bike in Bajaj’s portfolio. While the projector lamp was first introduced in the Pulsar 220F, the RS200 gets dual projectors. The overall design cues are quite muscular with several creases and contours making it a very busy design. The exhaust canister is styled quite neatly and compliments the overall motorcycle design.
