Bajaj Auto has launched a special edition of the Pulsar NS160 and the NS200 in the Colombian market. The models come with unique graphics and several accessories that distinguish them from their respective standard variants.
The special edition Bajaj Pulsar NS160 and NS200 feature the same styling and the only distinguishing visual aspect includes the 160 and 200 decals on the fuel tank. Neon yellow highlights accompany the silver and black shade of the motorcycles. The highlights are visible on the headlight mask, top of the fuel tank, tank shrouds and on the side and rear panels. A similar shade has been used on the rims of the bikes. The lower part of the rear panel features “Pulsarmania” sticker. Additional equipment on the Pulsar NS160 and the NS200 special edition models include knuckle guards, crash guards and rubber pads on the tank.
The changes are limited to new graphics and additional accessories that the motorcycles receive. Mechanical and hardware specifications on the Special Edition bikes are identical to the standard variants. The Pulsar NS160 uses a 160.3 cc SOHC, 4-valve, oil-cooled, twin spark DTS-i engine that produces 15.5 PS at 8,500 rpm and 14.6 Nm at 6,500 rpm. The NS200, on the other hand, uses 199.5 cc SOHC, 4-Valve, liquid-cooled, triple spark, DTS-i motor that delivers 23.5 PS at 9,500 rpm and 18.3 Nm at 8,000 engine revs.
Both motorcycles use traditional telescopic forks with Anti-friction Bush at the front and a Nitrox monoshock with Canister at the back to perform the shock absorption tasks. Stopping power on the Pulsar NS160 comes from 240 mm front and 230 mm rear discs. The Pulsar NS200 uses a 300 mm front disc (ABS model)/a 280 mm front disc (non-ABS model) and a 230 mm disc rear disc.
The special edition NS160 and NS200 are not likely to arrive in the Indian market. Back home, Bajaj Auto is working on a new variant of the Pulsar family that will fall in the mid-segment (125 cc), and this motorcycle will not be the Pulsar NS125 that is sold internationally. The new Pulsar 125 will most likely be launched next month, ahead of the festive season.
