Grand Pitstop GRoller review – 1st impressions

Grand Pitstop GRoller S – Paddock Stand Replacement now in the palm of your hand!


On a chance conversation we stumbled upon the GRoller by Grand Pitstop. We liked its usability enough to make  a short video. However, post that video we had a few thoughts. The drive chain is probably one of the least worried about components. Nevertheless, yet a very crucial component in any motorcycle. From watching superbikes in bollywood flicks to actually owning one the process is simplified. Without much hassle the Indian motorist has a plethora of not just brands but also models and trim levels to choose from. Conventional drive chains can make do with any type of chain oil. However, today drive chains found in most of the motorcycles 150cc and above require a chain lube to be applied at regular intervals.

The Drive chain lubrication cycle:

While most of the drive chain lubricants have a life span of upto 500 kilometers. Some chain lubricants can last up to 1000 kilometers worth of travel distance. Above all, dust and water are important factors for a drive chain lube cycle. Unlike the 150cc motorcycles, some of the 200cc and above motorcycles may have a centre stand as a standard fitment. Likewise in some of them it maybe offered as an optional extra. For motorcycles 200cc and above there is no centre stand as a result it is very inconvenient. In this event the task of lubricating the chain is left to the mechanic at your prefered service station. For the do it yourself types usually happens at home.

The Risks

For home use paddock stands are readily available in the market. They can easily be transported from the shop to your house. However when it comes to long distance travel, even carrying a foldable paddock can be cumbersome. Given its overall volumetric dimensions and weight it is just dead weight. There are also others in the market who have come up with solutions that attempt to hoist the motorcycle. That way the bike is elevated a few inches above the ground. Here there is a risk of  the bike slipping off. Even worse the elevated motorcycle could tip over on its side to meet the ground surface due to a sleight of hand. This can cause substantial amount of damage – to the side panels in case of a fully faired sports bike. Or cosmetic damage to the crash guard and auxiliary attachments like fog lamps etc. in case of a regular bike.


WHY GRoller?

These factors can turn fatal for your beloved motorcycle and the GRoller made in India by Grand Pitstop is a rather safer alternative. GRoller provides elevation for performing tasks like lubrication. It can also assist in flat tyre repair for the rear tyre too. In some cases it can service the front tyre of the motorcycle too. The GRoller comes in three different sizes depending upon the weight of your motorcycle. Furthermore, it is small enough to fit in your backpack or tankbag. The compact design of the GRoller is attractive yet not overwhelming. Because the GRoller usually comes in a bright color it is easy to clean off all the visible dirt and grime.

Bajaj Pulsar AS 200 compatible product

When Bajaj Auto launched the Pulsar 200 NS in June 2012 little did they know or expect that it would take to the “riding season” like fish to water. Let alone a touring crash guard for pulsar NS 200, other accessories were unheard of. Fast forward to five years later their big boy – the Bajaj Dominar 400 made its way to Siberia. Yes, the first ever Indian manufactured motorcycle to do so. What it may not have done in numbers it did so in the touring and interactive media industry. Drawing out maximum number of purpose driven motorcycle accessories to fit the taste of every possible rider.

To the extent that if one were to count the timeline since its launch vs the aftermarket accessories, the Dominar 400 truly “Dominates the night here”.

All this while, the Bajaj Pulsar 200 NS was adorned with aftermarket modifications and accessories. Built on the DIY philosophy for most part of it. Even though it was given a VRS of sorts it was reincarnated in the BS IV essence to meet the demand thus signalling its comeback. Keeping all riding styles at the forefront, the Bajaj Pulsar 200 NS is not just a frugal alternative to the KTM Duke 200 or an indianized clone. It is:

  • A city commute bike
  • Long distance tourer
  • An agile track machine

In the age of the British origin cruiser and the upcoming “orange riders” one individual set out to form a brotherhood that unveiled the 2017 edition Bajaj Pulsar 200 NS. Indeed the more that can be said about the motorcycle is less with a handful (yes you read it correctly, its NOT a typo). They have crossed the 100,000 kms mark and a rare odd bunch past the 200,000 mark!

Keeping in line with what could be added to this iconic motorcycle, a few decided to go ahead and accessorize the Bajaj Pulsar 200 NS. This attempt simply to add more bite to its touring quotient.

Keeping the safety as well as the multifaceted agility quotient in mind, (no we are not including the stunting aspect here!) one such accessories manufacturer has introduced the very first dual purpose accessory for the Bajaj Pulsar 200 NS – The crash Guard with Sliders.

The Bajaj PULSAR CRASH GUARD WITH SLIDERS has bolt-on sliders that can be removed if need be. There is also a variant that comes sans the sliders. This new addition not only paves way for addition of auxiliary lighting for riding in the harshest of conditions. Also, it allows the rider to conveniently mount action camera to capture low POV shots of the ride whether its meandering through the bends or wading through the grime of nature. The simplistic design blends in with the essence of the Pulsar 200 NS lineage. It also offers to add protection to the motorcycle. Finally after its reincarnations, the Bajaj Pulsar 200 NS is getting add -ons. Thereby adding to that extra bit of touring bling to the 23.5 bhp single cylinder scram-jet.

While a few were already delivered to other parts of the country, we opened the innings for Maharashtra bound orders. No, we will not give you a product description. Instead, we would encourage you to read through the description as listed on the manufacturer’s website (as listed below). In the meanwhile, you may look forward to our long term review. Additionally, you can get yourself one of these hard to resist yet simplistically designed Bajaj Pulsar crash guards with sliders.
