Eyeing leadership in the Super Sports segment, Bajaj Auto on Thursday launched the Pulsar RS 200 bike, priced at Rs 1,18,500 and Rs 1,30,268 for the non ABS and ABS versions respectively, ex-showroom Maharashtra.
The company said it plans to sell 2,500 units per month of Pulsar RS 200.
“We have launched Pulsar RS 200 in the super-sport segment to offer an unprecedented level of design, engineering and performance.
“The non-ABS version is priced at Rs 1,18,500 and ABS version at Rs 130,268 ex-showroom Maharashtra. This is the first bike having Rs 1,00,000 plus price tag from the company,” Bajaj Auto Motorcycle President Eric Vas told reporters here.
“We are already market leaders by far in the sports segment and with the launch of Pulsar RS 200 look forward to gaining leadership in the Super Sports segment as well. The company plans to sell 2,500 units of the Pulsar RS 200 per month and plan to start exports as well,” Vas said.
Bajaj first brought the Pulsar to the Indian market in 2001. Today Pulsar sells more than 55,000 units every month in the domestic sports motorcycle market with a leadership market share of 43 per cent making it India’s no.1 sports bike for 14 years in a row.
“The Pulsar RS 200 has 4 valves spark DTSi engine with fuel injection and liquid cooling. It unleashes 24.5 PS power and achieves a top speed of 141 km/hr and ....,” Vas said.
The super sports segment today stands at less than one per cent of the motorcycle market and this bike is all set to re-define and expand this segment, Vas said.
