About Pulsar 180NS
The Bajaj Pulsar NS 180 will be a replacement for the Pulsar 180 DTS-i. Based on the Pulsar 200 NS, this motorcycle will be pegged as an executive bike for those who need more power from a commuter motorcycle.
Aesthetically and even the under the skin, the Pulsar 180 NS is inspired by the Pulsar 200NS. It gets the same perimeter frame with a slimmer rear subframe, to suit the smaller tyre. Components like the foot pegs, swingarm, crash guards, alloy wheels, instrument cluster, turn indicators, clip on handlebar are a complete lift-off from the Pulsar 200 NS.
The upcoming Pulsar NS180 is likely to feature a four-valve, liquid-cooled engine with triple spark technology. This motor should produce 19 to 21bhp of power and 16Nm of torque. The company is expected to underpin the motorcycle by a perimeter frame, boasting of 50:50 weight distribution. The new engine might be mated to a five-speed gearbox.
The Bajaj Pulsar NS180 will go up against the TVS Apache RTR 180.
