2017 Modenas Pulsar RS200 – RM11,342.00 (basic price with GST)
The new 2017 Modenas Pulsar RS200 which is based on the Bajaj Pulsar RS200 is Modenas first ever sports bike to be released in the Malaysian market. Looking at the overall aggressive and masculine design, the RS200 is simply superb in terms of looks.
Being their first ever sports bike, Modenas has definitely made the right choice with the Pulsar RS200.
From the front fairing design all the way to the tail and exhaust, it’s a bike that you’ll want to take a second look each and every time you’re done riding it. The main focus of the overall design is aggressiveness and masculinity.
Powered by a single-cylinder, SOHC, 4-valve engine with liquid cooling and fuel injection technology, the Pulsar RS200 produces 24.5hp at 9,750rpm and 18.6Nm of torque at 8,000rpm. The engines on both the Pulsar RS200 and NS200 are equipped with three-spark technology that ensures smooth and efficient combustion.
The suspension aspect of the RS200 is covered by a telescopic fork with anti-friction bush handling the front while the rear is equipped with a Nitrox monoshock system with canister. What’s more enticing about the RS200 is that it comes with a single channel ABS system that works in tandem with its front 300mm disc brake. Together with the rear 230mm disc, stopping the RS200 safely and efficiently is no issue.
The RS200 also comes with a 13-litre fuel tank which gives a total kerb weight of only 164kg. This makes the RS200 quite light in its category and also offers a light ride and nimble handling no matter the riding situation.
The 2017 Modenas Pulsar RS200 is said to be priced at RM11,342 (basic price with GST) and it’s available in two different colours; Black and Blue.
2017 Modenas Pulsar NS200 – RM9,222.00 (basic price with GST)

The suspension package remains the same but everything else from here on is unique to the NS200. For the brake setup, the NS200 comes with a hydraulically-operated 280mm front disc and a rear 230mm disc brake. No ABS offered on the NS200.
The NS200 comes with a 12-litre fuel tank but at an overall kerb weight of only 155kg, the NS200 is indeed lighter than the RS200 which makes it perfect of inner-city riding and weaving in and out of heavy traffic.
