Deliveries of the recently launched 2023 Pulsar NS200 and the Pulsar NS160 in the Indian market have begun by Bajaj Auto. In our market, the updated motorcycles debuted in March of this year. The NS160 retails at Rs 1.35 lakh, whereas the NS200 costs Rs 1.47 lakh. All prices are ex-showroom. The addition of upside-down front forks to both motorcycles, which replace the standard ones on the previous model, is the biggest improvement. According to some reports, Hero MotoCorp is developing similar suspension components for the Xtreme 160R. With this suspension set-up, a test mule for the 160cc Hero MotoCorp roadster-segment motorcycle was spotted a few days back. For Indian customers, the new iterations of each model are now available at a price increase of Rs 10,000 and Rs 7,000, respectively (all prices ex-showroom, Delhi). Both motorcycles share the same styling, bodywork, and semi-digital equipment, with the exception of their respective engines. Larger tyres are on the NS200 to handle its higher output levels.
