  • [Ownership Thread]: Pulsar AS 200 Owners Review and Experiences

    It's a tiring Thursday evening, and I'd called the dealership earlier and was told that the bike would arrive today. There was no update from the guy after that because my phone, ever the drama queen, decided to run out of battery at that exact moment.

    So I'm riding back home and having my usual conversation with myself (that's normal, right?)

    "Look, I'm just saying, wouldn't it be great if the bike is already there when you reach home?"
    "Shut up, you know we're not THAT lucky"
    "What do you mean?"
    "Are you serious? Do you not know how things have been for us these past few years?"
    "I know, I know, but this could be it, you know. The moment that changes your life!"
    "There's no such thing like that. Look, I don't want to have this conversation, and we've reached our gate anyway. I'll call up the dealership once I'm home."
    "Look, I'm just saying, wouldn't it be great if...if..."


    "THE BIKE IS ALREADY HERE!!!"



    This is great! This is amazing! I don't what's going to happen next with me or the bike, but right now, at this moment, I am very, very happy. This is the first ever *thing* that I've purchased in my own name, not counting my laptop. It's mine, and mine alone, and that is a wonderful, wonderful feeling to have.

    But, enough about me and my drama. This isn't about me; it's about the bike, the Pulsar AS 200. Now, I guess I'm supposed to give a detailed review about this bike. I hate to break it to you, but that's not going to happen. That's because:

    1) This is my first bike; I've ridden the TVS Apache 180 and Wego, and those are my only points for comparison
    2) The bike's not registered, so I've only just ridden it everywhere around the neighborhood
    3) It's only been three days, guys

    Having said that, here are my disjointed impressions about the bike.

    Looks:

    Killer, although it does look a little like Mickey Mouse from some angles. I think I'll call the bike 'Mickey'. The windscreen gives it a very tall look, taller than it actually is. And the bike looks bulkier in flesh than it does in pictures. But come closer to it and it starts to look more slender and muscular in all the right areas, and not as tall or imposing as it seems from afar. I believe it is the longest of the new Pulsar Sport line, but it seems pretty compact to me.

        Hate to say but the old gen pulsar copy of mud guard looks very odd cheap and funny with the bike,at least the ns one doesn't look this much awkward.
        Get the windscreen wrapped to black ,those nuts look way too funky and bad ...!!
        And placing a windscreen order for myself soon..!!

                Thank you @The Monk for approving the thread! Its good to see the thread up and running. Hopefully more owners will join in soon. Until then, it would be great if you all shared your opinion about the run-in process. As I said before, I'm keeping the rpm limited to around 5K, and riding around the locality means that the rpm is constantly changing. I tend to take the bike out for a ride for around 30 minutes every day for practice. Any points to add?

                    Read the manual thoroughly to know the bike in and out. Manual will help you solve most of your doubts.

                          Quick update: papers are all ready, with just the RTO card pending.

                          No issues with the bike so far. The manual says that I've to limit the speed to 54 kmph at 6th gear, which is testing my patience. I've instead been keeping an eye on the rpm rather than the speed, limiting it to 5k most of the time. Of course, there are a few moments where I accidentally rev harder. I hope I'm not damaging it too much.

                          I'm going offtopic a bit here, but would anyone be interested in going for a short ride or pointing me in the right direction for a short ride tomorrow? I've got helmet and gloves, but no jacket yet. I'm not sure how that swings with you guys, but if anyone is okay with it, company is welcome. Cheers!
