- 2023 Bajaj Pulsar NS200: updated with USD front forks
- Dual-channel ABS added, making it competitive with TVS Apache RTR 200 4V
- The close-up video showcases an impressive, muscular design with new forks
Bajaj’s Pulsar NS range has gained popularity in the Indian market with its sporty appearance and attitude. The lineup’s aggressive design has appealed to many, and now Bajaj plans to broaden its presence by introducing USD forks and dual-channel ABS to the NS200 and NS160. Recently, Bajaj teased these two motorcycles on their social media, and the initial shipment has started to arrive at dealer showrooms.
A first walkaround video of the 2023 Pulsar NS has been shared by the Rash Gear channel. Unfortunately, those who were hoping for any design alterations will be disappointed as the motorcycle looks identical to its predecessors, with the exception of the addition of USD front forks.
The Pulsar NS200 recently received an update in the form of dual-channel ABS, which was already available on its faired counterpart, the Pulsar RS200. This long overdue update brings the NS200 up to par with its sibling. The addition of USD front forks also adds to the muscular look of the bike, almost as if the NS160 and NS200 have been hitting the gym and showing off their muscles. The new forks have a greater surface area to clamp with the frame, resulting in better clamping force and a more cohesive frame.
In the Brazilian market, Bajaj is offering bigger 33mm and 31mm USD forks with the NS200 and NS160. It is believed that the company is also looking forward to using a similar strategy in the Indian market as well. Bajaj has stepped up its game by equipping the Pulsar NS200 with dual-channel ABS and USD front forks, a move that puts it in direct competition with the TVS Apache RTR 200 4V. These features are added in a walkaround video of the Pulsar’s USD forks.
The upcoming 2023 Bajaj Pulsar NS200 is expected to arrive with new features like Bluetooth connectivity, turn-by-turn navigation on the instrumental cluster, adjustable suspensions, and more.
