A round of rumors again which you should take it as a possibility or even just a wrong info. Here I share to you anyway since this is what I got from the insider. OK. Some riders said that in 2014 there will be no more 2-stroke bike for sale as new bike in Malaysia. Currently there are two popular 2-stroke bike in Malaysia that is the Yamaha 125ZR and Kawasaki Ninja KRR ZX150 that are still on sale. Due next year, some said that the Kawasaki Ninja KRR ZX150 will be stopped in production and replace with another bike. The current Ninja KRR ZX150 is at 30HP which is powerful compared to other 4-stroke bike. It is said that it is going to be replaced with 23PS Kawasaki Bajaj Pulsar 200NS. We have never heard of Bajaj here in Malaysia yet, but Kawasaki have some JV with Bajaj of India to produce bikes. For now, the Kawasaki Bajaj Pulsar 200NS is marketed specifically for the Indonesian as of the press release. To see it coming to Malaysia is logical but there are some issue of acceptance of a bike that is not 100% made by Kawasaki as we always see. Below is the press release of the Kawasaki Bajaj Pulsar 200NS: 

Today at the Jakarta Fair*, Kawasaki Heavy Industries, Ltd. is happy to announce as one of its new models for 2013 the “Pulsar 200NS,” a 200cc naked sports model for the Indonesian market, under the new Kawasaki Bajaj brand.

Kawasaki has worked on the “Pulsar 200NS” with India’s Bajaj (Bajaj Auto Ltd. of Maharashtra, India) to make a number of improvements for the Indonesian market. Sales are scheduled to start at the end of July.

Kawasaki and Bajaj have had a collaborative relationship since 1985, working together on bike development and sales.  In the Indonesian sports bike market, the models with the greatest sales volumes are those 200cc and under. Until now, Kawasaki’s line-up in this category was incomplete. Conversely, Bajaj’s Pulsar 200NS was doing well in the Indian market. Thus, the relationship between Kawasaki and Bajaj was taken to the next level. Working closely together, almost 200 improvements were made to the bike to ensure it would measure up to Kawasaki’s strict standards for durability and quality. The new Pulsar 200NS is being released under the new “Kawasaki Bajaj” brand.

Design elements for the new Pulsar 200NS were inspired by the latest European trends. The compact front cowl, and radiator shrouds that blend seamlessly with the fuel tank and flow smoothly to the tail section leave a fresh yet powerful impression. The design will meet the needs of a wider range of customers than current Kawasaki models, accommodating even entry-level riders.

This model will be produced at Bajaj’s Chakan Plant in Maharashtra, India. Sales will be made through PT. Kawasaki Motor Indonesia (hereafter KMI), the Indonesian subsidiary of Kawasaki Heavy Industries, Ltd. The model will only be available at KMI’s official dealer network.

It is being held in the capital city of Jakarta from June 6 through July 7.
