The new Pulsar 180 NS will be sharing its design traits with the 200 NS and upcoming 150 NS, it will also get an upgraded triple-spark engine that will churn out around 20 PS of power.

We all know Bajaj Auto is on a roll with the new line of Pulsars that kicked off with the flagship RS 200 launched last month and was followed by the 200 AS and 150 AS models. While the manufacturer is gearing up to launch the 150 NS in the country in the following weeks, there will also be a fifth Pulsar model that will go on sale this year that is the 180 NS joining the stable.

Going by the new NS (Naked Sport) title, the upcoming Pulsar 180 NS will be sharing its design traits with the larger 200 NS and will get the striking lines, new alloy wheels, split seats and the better equipped digital-analog instrument cluster. Much like the upcoming 150 NS that has been spotted on a host of occasions, the 180 NS will also be upgraded to a monoshock setup at the rear while telescopic forks perform duty at the front.

The Pulsar 180 currently employs a 178.6cc single-cylinder DTS-i engine that produces 17.2 PS of power and 14 Nm of torque, paired to a 5-speed gearbox. Expect a similar powertrain on the new 180 NS that is likely to feature Triple-Spark technology and will be tuned to produce around 20 PS of power, it will get 4-valves. We had earlier reported that Bajaj will have as many as 11 variants of the Pulsar range on sale by 2016. Sure the company will eventually discontinue the older models, but that won’t be happening immediately as the current P180 might stay on sale for sometime (making it the 12th Pulsar in the ‘Definitely Male’ range).
