One of the fastest 200cc motorcycles currently for sale in India is the Bajaj Pulsar NS200, which Bajaj also exports abroad. One of the nations where the NS200 is sold is Vietnam, where one of the owners modified his motorcycle to look like a 350 cc homage to the Kawasaki Z1000. The Pulsar NS350 is here.
The NS350 has undergone significant modifications that have made it the Kawasaki Z1000’s little brother. The owner has also played around with the engine and rebored it so it now has 350 cc of displacement as opposed to the original bike’s 200 cc, so the changes are more than just cosmetic. The 150 cc larger rebored engine has no power figures yet, though.
The Pulsar NS350’s design is directly influenced by Kawasaki’s litre-class Z1000, and its LED headlights resemble those of the large Japanese motorcycle quite a bit. A small raised windshield, a handlebar made of carbon fibre with new clip-ons, and clutch, brake, and levers from CRG are some additional exterior changes.

Additional exterior modifications include an aftermarket engine and crash guards, a new side fairing on the fuel tank (which is a holdover from the original bike), and an all-digital console taken from a Honda MSX125. The Maserati Trident logo can be seen on the Pulsar NS350 between the headlight and the windscreen.
The Pulsar NS350 also has a completely new seat and a completely new tail section, complete with a taillight that has been restyled and comes equipped with LED lighting. The saddle and the back end are both hand-operated parts.
In addition to the rebored engine, this modified Pulsar has undergone a number of mechanical changes that make it the one to own. Brembo brake callipers, new rear suspension, and a wider 180 section rear tyre are some of the modifications that have been made to the NS350. These changes should help the modified NS350 handle the additional power from the modified engine of the original NS200, which in its standard configuration produces 23.17 Bhp at 9,500 rpm and a peak torque output of 18.3Nm at 8,000 rpm.
Overall, the owner’s wish to transform this modified NS200 into an homage to the Kawasaki Z1000 has been realised. Hopefully the rebored engine’s power will be sufficient to match the vehicle’s sense of style in terms of on-road performance.
