Bajaj Launches its 'Adventure Sports' line-up. Reveals Pulsar AS200 and AS150 main specs, features and price.

Looks like the chaps at Bajaj Auto have sworn of raining the market with their products off late. While the new RS200 is still keeping people busy gawking wide-eyed on it, the automaker has already put forward another potential crowd-puller in front of us. Today, they have launched another line-up into their products, calling it Adventure Sports. The new line-up, as the name itself suggests, is to comprise sports touring and probably off-roading focused motorcycles. As of now, they have placed two if their much anticipated new products in the line-up, namely Pulsar AS200 and PulsarAS150. These motorcycles are essentially great options for touring enthusiasts who have always felt neglected in the crazy-for-faired-machines kind of market we have here.

The half fairing, an elongated windscrean and a projector headlamp makes the bike a good tool for touring. The machine is priced at INR 91550 ex-showroom, Delhi.
