16 month old Bajaj Pulsar RS 200 catches fire in the middle of the road

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

A 16 month old Bajaj Pulsar RS200, which has been ridden for about 18,500 kms, caught fire in the middle of the road.

Dhanish Ahamed from Pasumalai, Tamil Nadu is a proud owner of Bajaj Pulsar RS 200 since the last 16 months. Earlier this week, when Dhanish was riding to his college, just like any other day, Dhanish noticed that there was fire spewing out from the engine area.

Not sure of what to do, he immediately brought the bike to a stand still and parked it on the side of the road. Within minutes, the fire engulfed the fuel tank, post which the entire bike was on fire. By the time help arrived, the bike was completely gutted. Locals tried helping by throwing water, but it was of no help.

Dhanish mentions that the bike had no after market fitments, neither it was poorly maintained. The bike was serviced at regular intervals. The next servicing was due in another 1,500 kms. At the time of the incident, he was riding solo, and was at about 60 kmph. When we asked, if he has any idea about how the fire broke, he says he is not sure, but it could be due to short circuit.

The dealer and Bajaj team has been supportive towards the entire incident. Dhanish says that the dealer has already promised him a brand new Pulsar RS200 as a replacement

While the export-spec variant boasts of a dual-channel ABS, the domestic model makes do with an optional single-channel ABS for the front wheel. Other feature highlights include dual projector headlamps, clip-on handlebars, split seats, two-piece taillight and sharp body panels.
