- Pulsar NS160 and NS200 will get USD forks and dual-channel ABS as a part of regular update from Bajaj Auto
- Bajaj Auto has officially released the teaser of NS160 and NS200 with dual-channel ABS and USD Forks
Bajaj Auto is known for giving regular updates on its bikes specially the Pulsar range. It is quite interesting to see that the Pulsar NS160 and NS200 were launched in 2017 and 2012 respectively but they don’t look outdated at all. Since launch Bajaj Auto has given regular updates to both models and so it is going to happen now. But this time it isn’t just limited to cosmetics. This time Bajaj has released the teaser of NS200 and NS160 with USD forks and 2-channel ABS. Let’s find out more.
Bajaj Pulsar NS200 And NS160 USD Forks
The latest teaser released by Bajaj Auto shows USD Forks and 2-channel ABS on Pulsar NS160 and NS200. In its latest teaser Bajaj Auto says “Muscular Styling Goes Upside Down” in the end. The teaser itself is upside down and hence it mentions “Rotate Your Phone” for correct view. What’s really interesting that Bajaj has given the first glimpse of USD forks and 2-channel ABS equipped NS200 and NS160 in the teaser. Take a look at it below.
In first glimpse we’ve seen both bikes in a new shade. Which means that along with feature updates both bikes will get new colour options too. USD Forks and 2-channel ABS equipped Bajaj Pulsar NS160 and NS200 are already on sale in Brazil. In Brazil both bikes are sold as Dominar 160 and Dominar 200. For 200cc the USD Forks measure 33mm while for 160cc it measures 31mm.
Both bikes are quite popular in India specially among youngsters. Dual-channel ABS was a much needed update on both considering the fact that they’re performance bikes. As of now Bajaj Auto offers dual-channel ABS on Pulsar RS200. With addition of these two new features both bikes will lock horns against the Apache RTR 160 4V and Apache RTR 200 4V.
It is unlikely that there will be any changes in power and torque figures on both bikes. Bajaj Pulsar NS160 gets 160.3cc engine that puts out 17.2 PS and 14.6 Nm with 5-speed gearbox on offer. More powerful Pulsar NS200 gets 199.5cc engine that packs 24.13 bhp and 18.74 nm with 6-speed gearbox on offer.
It is obvious that with addition of USD forks and dual-channel ABS both bikes will get a price hike. A price hike of ₹5,000 to ₹10,000 is expected. As of now the Pulsar NS160 starts at ₹1.25 lakh (ex-showroom) while the NS200 is priced at ₹1.40 lakh (ex-showroom).
