2023 Bajaj Pulsar NS200 Teaser: Will Receive Inverted Fork & Dual channel ABS equipment

News by Team Drivio | Mar 11, 2023

The new Bajaj Pulsar NS200 model will boast of being safer and even sportier than before, while retaining its sweet handling and peaky engine. 

  • The Bajaj Pulsar NS200’s engine makes 24.5PS and 18.5Nm in its latest iteration.
  • Suspension duties are handled by a telescopic fork and a monoshock.
  • Braking is taken care of by a 300mm front disc and 230mm rear disc.

Bajaj has released three teasers for an unknown motorcycle on its social media accounts. Despite the fact that none of these videos show the entire motorcycle, the "UPSIDE DOWN" tag on these videos suggests that the new bike could be the 2023 Bajaj Pulsar NS200.

The Indian marque recently introduced the Dominar 200 and Dominar 160 in Brazil, which are essentially the NS200 and NS160 with one key difference — an upside down fork — and this is likely to be the case for the Indian models as well, but with a few other market-specific changes.

What are new updates of 2023 Bajaj Pulsar NS200?

The Pulsar NS200, one of Bajaj's best-selling motorcycles, is likely to be updated with an inverted fork. The Indian-spec NS200 will almost certainly get a 33mm USD fork along with the added safety net of dual-channel ABS. Given that its smaller sibling, the N160, has it, it only makes sense that the NS200 should get it as well. Along with these, the brand could introduce a couple of new colors, as the bike is currently available in four, rather bland colors.

2023 Bajaj Pulsar NS200 Price

The NS200 currently retails for Rs 1,40,666 (ex-showroom Delhi) for all colour trims, and these updates could result in a Rs 10,000 price increase. Despite the price increase, the updated NS200 will still be more than Rs 41,000 cheaper than the KTM 200 Duke, with its prices starting from Rs 1,91,693 (ex-showroom Delhi). Funnily, this is despite having nearly the same power and hardware. Given that Bajaj has already teased the bike, it could be launched this month.
