If there is one thing Bajaj Auto is very proactive at, it’s launching new colours and variants of its existing motorcycles. In the past few months, we have seen updates to the Pulsar lineup which was largely focussed around minor changes and of course colours. With so many Pulsars already on sale, Bajaj went ahead and launched another one, the Pulsar NS 160.

Aimed squarely at modern 150cc motorcycles like the Suzuki Gixxer and Honda CB Hornet 160R, the Pulsar NS 160 was positioned as a more practical offering with its smaller tyres compared to competition, it also missed out on a rear disc. Bajaj has now launched the rear disc variant of the Pulsar NS 160 while also giving the motorcycle fatter tyres, 90/90/17 at the front and 120/80/17 at the rear, similar size as the Pulsar 220.

Bajaj is yet to update its website and hasn’t announced the availability of the Pulsar NS 160 Rear Disc officially but has started promoting the new variant on social media. Claimed to be the most powerful motorcycle in the segment, the Pulsar NS 160 employs a 160cc, 4-valve, oil-cooled engine that belts out 15.5 HP and 14.6 Nm. The rear disc variant is priced at a Rs. 4500/- premium over the regular 130 mm rear drum brake model.
