Pulsar 200 NS has come up with a 199.5 cc engine that uses four valves for inlet and exhaust and the valves are driven by Single Over Head Camshaft mechanism. The existence of two valves for inlet and two for exhaust ensures that the engine would deliver output in a better manner at all engine rpms. The liquid cooling system adopted in this engine is responsible for efficient cooling. The radiator for liquid cooling system lies in front of the engine assembly. This engine is mounted with 3 spark plugs for ignition of charge which results in effective ignition and this feature along with liquid cooling would increase the fuel efficiency of the engine. The spark plugs are controlled by an electronic unit which times the ignition on the 3 plugs based on level of charge that enters the engine cylinder. The engine is capable of producing a maximum torque of 18.3 Nm at 8000 rpm. The bike can get good response to acceleration till speeds of range 80 - 100 km/hr. The engine delivers a maximum power of 23.52 bhp at 9000 rpm and this high power delivery coupled with 6 speed gear train results in high top end speeds.

Ride And Handling
The perimeter frame loaded with thread cut tyres on front and rear give good control of the vehicle while making bent turns in sharp curves. The telescopic fork at front and the nitrous gas filled mono suspension at rear give better riding experience and handling in high speeds and on bumpy roads. The floating caliper disc brakes ensure good heat dissipation and provide an effective braking to get back the bike to stop position within a short distance even when the bike is at high speeds. The large wheel base, high ground clearance and low seat height ensure good handling and comfortable riding experience on long distance travels.
