    People will never get satisfied I guess.Bajaj has given us more what we can expect for 1lac price tag IMO.Hope the bigger pulsar/ktm looks different from their current 200cc versions

    I hope this shape is continued as it is a classic and evergreen design.

    +1, add current P150 to the list, on top of good performance, they got very attractive design, which contributed to sales numbers. But, I think classic pulsar was also very good looking, I mean it had a butch kind of look going for it. If Bajaj were to release a classic edition now with alloys, discs & HIDs.. it would look very different & hot.

    mmm...maybe you haven't seen a lot of bikes . Okay that was pun intended. But taking on the "world" is stretching fanboism, me think.

    Trying to address the taste and expectation of fans and critics is always plagued with perils for any designers/manufacturers. Not a Pulsar fan, though I would say, Bajaj did a damn good job with the new pulsar. It definitely look different from old pulsar, but there is a distinct 'Pulsar' to it. At least as far as I can see. There will be truth towards critical view as well. But at the end of the day. When the old and new stands side-by-side. I can be certain, The P200ns will get all the attention. Not just because it is newer. But it is undisguisedly more++ striking in every department.

    Last but not least...finally...and finally, Bajaj got rid of that potato-tank.

    seems like you took it in an offensive way looks are subjective & even I don't like Pulsar's tank much..you like it,that's good but everyone has different opinion about looks..

    OK guys, lets not start bashing Bajaj here.

    I am currently in China and I can easily vouch for Bajaj. In sub 250cc segments the Chinese homegrown bikes are nowhere near to our P220. They top out at just 120 kmph. Also the build quality is shoddy. Our Pulsars will rip them apart.

    Now in the Bajaj-KTM era, the P200NS is simply next level! I have experienced the rush of the new Pulsar [don't ask me how] It takes the word ripping to a new level! I am guessing the KTM genes will hold the engine together for many years. And keep it running smooth. The 200NS just doesn't like to stay still.

    And with the news of these future KTM-Bajajs, it will be a rip-fest!
    I just worry about the new inexperienced riders taking on the new Pulsars!
    Ride safe!

    The KTM-Bajaj joint ventures is probably one of the best deals ever made in the Indian two wheeler segment, i see that it is going to long last under the leadership of intelligent Bajaj family, this venture has taken biking to the next level and our Indian customers are being extremely benefited by local made high tech bikes.

    The 200NS would be the best package among the current crop of homegrown bikes. None but Bajaj could do it. Never a big Pulsar fan but Kudos to Bajaj for taking biking to an entirely new level with the 200NS.
