A naked street fighter to a semi-faired adventure tourer. This is exactly what Pune-based Autologue Designs aims to achieve with the Adv kit designed for the Bajaj Pulsar 200 NS. The Pulsar 200 NS, equipped with the Autologue kit, will be ready to take on rougher roads, and also will be able to offer much better wind protection to the rider. The Autologue Design ADV kit for the Bajaj Pulsar 200 NS will be available as a range of bolt-on parts, which means that the motorcycle’s base specifications will remain unchanged.
The kit comprises of a taller windscreen, high-set front mudguard, knuckle guards, larger tank shrouds and a bash plate. The alloy wheels ditch the street focused MRF Zapper for knobbly tyres, and this is the single biggest change that elevates the looks of the motorcycle – from a street naked to an adventure tourer.
Autologue Design has also not given a date of release for this kit. The same outfit is also working on an ADV kit for 2019 Bajaj Dominar 400. The Dominar’s ADV kit will be retailed through Bajaj dealerships, and a similar approach may be adopted for the Pulsar 200 NS’ kit as well. For pricing and availability details of the Pulsar 200 NS’ ADV kit, you can get in touch directly with Autologue Design here. We anticipate that the entire kit will cost about Rs. 10,000, excluding shipping charges.
However, do note that the knobbly tyres are not from Autologue Design, and if you want to replicate the render look on your Pulsar 200 NS, you’ll have to buy such tyres from the aftermarket. Incidentally, Bajaj Auto used to sell the tourer version of the Pulsar NS200 a year ago. Called the Bajaj Pulsar AS200, where AS stands for adventure sports, the motorcycle was discontinued due to tepid sales. So, Bajaj has taken a new approach to make its motorcycles appeal to the ADV crowd by allowing Autologue Design to sell ADV bolt-on accessories through Bajaj dealerships.
Coming back to the Pulsar 200 NS, the motorcycle is powered by a 199cc KTM Duke 200 derived four stroke, single cylinder engine. This motor makes 23.2 Bhp of peak power and 18.3 Nm of peak torque. The engine uses a carburetor to keep costs low, and gets a four valve head that operates through a single overhead camshaft. A 6 speed manual gearbox is standard while single channel ABS is optional. The non-ABS version starts from Rs, 99,283 ex-showroom Mumbai, while the ABS equipped version is priced at Rs. 1.11 lakhs. We strongly urge all readers to buy ABS equipped motorcycles as ABS is a life saver.
