Both the Pulsar NS200 and Pulsar NS160 have the same changes in the performance part. There are two colours available for both bikes—ebony black and metallic pearl white. Though the colour options are simple yet aggressive and there are few performance upgrades. There is not any difference in the design. So, let us see the upgrades which are explained below:
Upgraded USD Forks
The Pulsar NS200 and Pulsar NS160’s main upgrade is the 33mm Aluminium USD forks. These suspensions are new and are not shared by other bikes in the lineup of Bajaj like the Dominar. The USD Forks have made the appearance of the bikes more aggressive and big. They also have reduced the weight by around 1 kg in both models due to the use of aluminium. Handling and manoeuvrability are much better than the previous model.
Both the Bajaj Pulsar NS200 and Pulsar NS160 have dual-channel ABS as standard and larger brakes. The front brake now measures 300mm Disc (dual channel ABS) whereas the rear measures 230mm Disc with ABS. Instead of Bybre brake callipers, now both bikes use Grimeca brake callipers.
The NS200 and NS160 have the same alloy wheels as the Bajaj Pulsar N250. It gives a much sportier look and is also lighter. The alloys are greyish-black in colour, which makes the bike look much more classy and defines the naked sports bike category. The previous NS200 and NS160 had coloured alloys such as white, blue and red, which had mixed opinions.
Updated instrument cluster
Even though the instrument cluster is the exact same on both the NS160 and NS200, there are two new things added in. Now the instrument cluster has a gear position indicator, distance-to-empty display and instantaneous fuel consumption readings. These might be a small update in the instrument cluster part but are some essentials on the new gen bikes.
The NS200 and NS160 models retain the same engine as their predecessors, but they now comply with OBD2 BSVI standards. These bikes can now monitor real-time emissions, a significant departure from solely relying on lab-tested results that help protect the environment.
So, these are the updates and upgrades that you can find in the 2023 NS200 and NS160. These are not very big upgrades yet with some significant improvements. Should you consider these two options? Yes, they are great value-for-money options.
The price of the Bajaj Pulsar NS200 FI DUAL ABS BS6 is Rs 424,900 and of the Bajaj Pulsar NS160 FI DUAL ABS BS6 is Rs 384,900 in Nepal.
