Bajaj Auto has launched new colour options on its popular Pulsar NS & RS range of motorcycles. The new colour schemes offer a more contemporary look while also receiving new body graphics, which adds to the appeal.
The range which consists of the NS160, NS200 and the RS200 are offered with a starting price of Rs 1.08 lakh for the 160cc model. The NS200 and the RS200 have priced slightly higher at Rs 1.31 lakh and Rs 1.52 lakh, respectively. All prices are ex-showroom (Delhi).
The new motorcycles are now offered in two new paint schemes: Burnt Red (Matte finish) and Plasma Blue (Satin finish). Both these new colour schemes further come with white alloy wheels, while the front and rear fenders are now finished in a carbon-fibre texture. The new motorcycles also offer a hot stamping pattern on the seats, adding to its distinctive looks.
Apart from the addition of the new paint scheme, all three motorcycles remain otherwise unchanged. The updates on the Bajaj Pulsar 160NS, 200NS and RS200 are limited to the above-mentioned cosmetic updates alone while retaining the same mechanicals. The Bajaj Pulsar NS160 comes powered by a 150cc single-cylinder engine producing 17bhp.
The Bajaj Pulsar 200NS and the RS200, on the other hand, use a 199cc single-cylinder unit borrowed from the KTM Duke 200. The engine on the 200NS and RS200 produce 23bhp and is mated to a six-speed gearbox.
All three motorcycles have become extremely popular over time in their respective segments. The motorcycles offer good performance, impressive mileage and excellent overall comfort.
