Bajaj Auto, the world’s most valuable two-wheeler and three-wheeler company, has relaunched its Naked Sports motorcycle brand, the Pulsar NS series, with two new variants. The Pulsar NS series has been a favourite among thrill-seekers worldwide and is sold in nearly 30 countries. The new and improved Pulsar NS200 and Pulsar NS160 come with aggressive and muscular styling, along with new features to enhance handling and safety.
Segment-First Upside-Down Forks
The new Pulsar NS series boasts of segment-first upside-down forks on both bikes, which allow fast cornering and agile handling. The bikes’ beefier and more attention-grabbing look, coupled with the perimeter frame’s high stiffness and low flex, provides the sharpest handling experience, making them the sports motorcycles of choice for enthusiasts.
Bajaj Auto’s patented Triple Spark DTS-i 4V engine produces the best-in-class power of 18 kW (24.5 PS) and 18.74 Nm of torque in the NS200 model. The new design has shaved off about 1.5 kgs from the NS200, delivering a class-leading power-to-weight ratio. The advanced liquid cooling system ensures thrilling performance at high temperatures and speeds. The NS200 has a 6-speed gearbox that delivers greater power at higher RPMs, keeping the adrenaline flowing.
Speed + Safety
Both bikes come equipped with dual-channel ABS, which ensures the best-in-class stopping power and ultra-safe braking on any surface. The massive 300 mm front disc and 230 mm rear disc brakes provide the ultimate safety feature. The dual-channel ABS technology prevents wheels from locking, ensuring the bike doesn’t skid on any surface. The brakes of NS160 have been made bigger than their previous version, and wider front and rear tyres (100/80-17 F, 130/70-17 R) give better stability and control with wider tyres avoiding slippage in wet & extreme conditions.
Pulsar NS200 and NS160 have been redesigned to enhance the aggressive, muscular styling the NS series is known for. The riding stance is forward-biased, fully engaging the rider in the thrill of riding an NS bike on the track and streets. A piercing blade-like speed line embodies the sporty character of this bike, and touches of black chrome, grey and carbon fibre give the contours of this naked beast a sinewy, speedy look.
Pricing and Availability
The Pulsar NS200 is priced at ₹1,47,347 (ex-showroom Delhi), and the Pulsar NS160 is priced at ₹1,34,675 (ex-showroom Delhi). Both models will be available in four colours – Metallic Pearl White, Glossy Ebony Black, Satin Red, and Pewter Grey.
Conclusion: The new Pulsar NS series comes with a range of advanced features that redefine the meaning of sports motorcycles. The upgraded console with added information and segment-first upside-down forks enhances the handling experience, making it a preferred choice for thrill-seekers. The bikes’ power, safety, and aggressive styling are sure to turn heads on the street.
