Bajaj Auto has decided to phase out is model Pulsar 200 which will now be replaced by Pulsar 220. The new model was launched three weeks earlier which was the refurbished model of Pulsar launched in December 2006. The new pulsar is pitted against Yamaha FZ16, Fazer and R15, Hero Honda’s Karizma, TVS Apache 180 and the Honda CBF Stunner PGM-FI. However, in order to compete competitively in its segment, the company has slashed the prices by nearly Rs. 15,000 and the upgraded and better model is available at Rs. 70,000 (ex-showroom, Delhi).

“The carburettored version of the new Pulsar 220, which has been launched, offers higher power and better performance at a much lesser price. So, continuing with the Pulsar 200 was not possible, as it was priced in the similar range. We wanted to offer the buyers a better bike at an affordable rate,” said S Sridhar, chief executive (two-wheelers), Bajaj Auto.

Pulsar 200 is still available in some showrooms across India but it will no longer be supplied from the company. These models are available at their original prices without any discounts. Currently, Bajaj portfolio included three models of the bike – Pulsar 150, Pulsar 180 and Pulsar 220.
