The Pulsar NS160 and NS200 have been popular choices for enthusiasts and commuters alike. With the MY2023 updates, the bikes are set to become even more enticing. Based on the official teasers, it appears that both models will receive a refreshed design and updated features like the front USD forks. Fans of the brand can expect to see improvements in areas such as performance, comfort, and technology.
Bajaj's new move to offer dual-channel ABS on the NS200 and NS160 models comes as a welcome relief for bike enthusiasts who prioritize the safety features on their bikes. The braking hardware, a 300mm front disc and a 230mm rear disc, was considered adequate for most riding conditions, however, the addition of dual-channel ABS further enhances the safety net for the rider. With this new offering from Bajaj, customers can now enjoy a more secure, confident and comfortable ride.
Apart from retaining its key design elements, features, and engine configuration, Bajaj seems to be taking things up a notch with a possible new paint scheme. And from what we can gather from the teaser, it looks like the new scheme could be a game-changer.
Coming to the technical specs, the NS160 will still be powered by the same 160.3cc single-cylinder engine with an impressive output of 17.03 bhp and 14.6 Nm of torque, and mated to a five-speed gearbox. On the other hand, the Pulsar NS200 is powered by a 199.5cc single-cylinder engine that makes 24.13 bhp and 18.74 Nm. It gets a six-speed gearbox.
The updated 2023 versions of Pulsar NS160 and NS200 seem to be packed with features that will make them worth their price. As of now, the Pulsar NS160 costs Rs. 1,25,114 and the Pulsar NS200 is priced at Rs. 1,40,666 (ex-showroom Delhi).
