The popular Bajaj Pulsar NS200 sets the ‘fastest quarter-mile wheelie’ in the country and has entered the India Book of Records and FMSCI Indian National Record. The popular street-naked motorcycle took just 23.68s to complete the quarter-mile wheelie successfully with Hrushikesh Mandke on the saddle.
FMSCI (Federation Of Motor Sports Club of India) senior representatives and an adjudicator from the India Book of Records were present to conduct the event on a blocked-off stretch of an airport runway. The necessary protocols and safety equipment were laid down by the organizers to successfully carry out the record attempt.
The rider used the Bajaj Pulsar NS200 in stock condition to set the record and was provided with all the necessary safety equipments and gear. To prevent scrapping the tarmac, the rear mudguard and the number plates were removed while attempting the stunt.
Commenting on successfully achieving the record, Hrushikesh Mandke stated, “I learned to stunt on the first-generation Bajaj Pulsar, and I’m delighted to wheelie into the record books with the Pulsar NS 200. I have always trusted the Pulsar to deliver the performance and safety to enable extraordinary motorcycle stunts and it is fantastic that Indian stunt riders are now gunning for the record books, with made-in-India motorcycles.”
The Bajaj Pulsar NS200 is powered by a 199cc single-cylinder liquid-cooled triple-spark DTS-i patented technology. The engine is mated to a 6-speed gearbox and produces a maximum power of 24.5bhp at 9750rpm and a peak torque of 18.5Nm at 8000rpm.
At the front, the motorcycle has standard telescopic forks while the rear is equipped with a mono-shock suspension setup. The 156kg motorcycle has a 168mm ground clearance while braking is handled by 30mm and 230mm discs at both ends, supported by single-channel standard ABS.
The 2021 version of the NS and RS range was recently added by Bajaj. The latest Bajaj Pulsar NS200 comes with new paint schemes and starts at a price of Rs 1.31 lakh.
The Bajaj Pulsar NS200 has undergone multiple revisions and changes over the years in the Indian market. It faces competition from the likes of the TVS Apache RTR 200 4V and the KTM Duke 200.
