Is Bajaj Pulsar AS200 a Long Life Product? What you say? Because everyone said Bajaj not have long life whole product? (plastic quality poor, engine not purely sufficient, no resale value because they launch product every month), is it true?
According to me, every person changes his bike after 4-6 years. And I don't think this bike will give any problem till 5-6years. The major part of bikes is it's engine And AS200's engine is borrowed from 200NS & bajaj is saying that this is the best engine they have developed till now. It is 4 valve, triple spark liquid cooled engine, you can see video for more details here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ow6OdJ9T7hs.
If you see Royal Enfields engines, they are less reliable, even new bikes gives problems. also paint quality is poor. Some owners of Karizma are also mentioned that plastic started cracking after few months. You can google it. Hondas/Heros engines are smooth but fuel economy is less compared to bajaj bikes. AS200 has got power, technology, features, mileage. This is a complete value for money bike.
Bajaj has improved considerably over its old products and they have gained a lot of popularity in the last decade. With every new product, Bajaj improves over its earlier mistakes. Every new machine loses its half value after 5 years, making the resale factor count only in short ownership experiences. Bajaj has built its best engine till date and the working of the bike is excellent when compared to its older products. The bike can be easily kept for 10 years and that can be seen from the CT 100, which also being a Bajaj has been with people from such a long time and now Bajaj again has started producing the same. AS 200 comes with an impressive suspension and brings refinement into Bajaj motorcycling experience. You can definitely go for AS 200 without worrying about the later consequences.
