The prices of the long-awaited Bajaj Pulsar NS160 and the NS200 motorcycles have been revealed ahead of the official launch in the country. The NS160 retails at Rs 1.35 lakh, whereas the NS200 costs Rs 1.47 lakh. All prices are ex-showroom. The new Bajaj Pulsar NS200 and the NS160 have received a range of updates for 2023. A while ago, the firm teased both the street naked motorcycles. In Brazil, these bikes are called the Dominar 200 and the Dominar 160 and are already on sale with USD suspensions. The new versions have been uncloaked for the Indian buyers at an increased price of Rs 10,000 and Rs 7,000, respectively (all prices ex-showroom, Delhi) over the previous iterations of each model. Except for the engines, both motorcycles are similar and share the same styling, bodywork, and semi-digital equipment.
