The new variant will be based on the Pulsar NS160 Twin Disc which retails at Rs 85,939. It will come equipped with a single-channel ABS unit. Apart from the safety feature, the Pulsar NS160 ABS will remain unchanged both cosmetically and mechanically. Braking hardware consists of a 260mm disc upfront and a 230mm disc at the rear. Meanwhile suspension duties are taken care of by telescopic front forks and a monoshock at the rear.
The Pulsar NS160 is powered by a 160cc, single-cylinder, oil-cooled, carburetted engine that produces 15.3bhp and 14.6Nm of torque. The motor comes mated to a five-speed gearbox. In terms of competition, the Pulsar NS160 ABS will compete against the Honda CB Hornet 160R, Honda XBlade, and Suzuki Gixxer all of which get an ABS unit.
