Sporty Bajaj Pulsar spied; might or not it’s an N160? | Autocar India

This time round, it appears to be a sportier, greater displacement mannequin than the next-gen Pulsar 125 that we lately noticed.

As Bajaj’s reinvention of its iconic Pulsar sub-brand continues, one other upcoming Pulsar mannequin has been seen testing. This comes simply days after we spied the next-generation Pulsar 125. This time round, although, it appears to be a sportier, greater displacement motorbike, and it appears prefer it may very well be a scaled-down model of the quarter-litre Pulsar N250 that launched final 12 months (maybe an N160).

The design of the wheels, the field part swingarm, the rising tail part, total bodywork and signature tail-lamp all very intently resemble the N250, however the engine appears smaller in dimension and sports activities an underbelly exhaust unit, not like the 250’s side-slung end-can. A kick starter is seen, like on the Pulsar NS160, however the form and design of the engine covers on the check mule aren’t similar to these of the NS160, and it’s onerous to inform whether or not an oil cooler is current or not (the NS160 will get one). So it’s unclear in the meanwhile whether or not Bajaj is tweaking the NS160’s motor or creating a brand new engine on this displacement vary (maybe by cutting down the N250’s motor).

What’s obvious is that this upcoming bike appears fairly near production-ready, even sporting a correct paint scheme and never the camouflage that we normally see check mules in. This appears to counsel that the bike is in its closing levels of testing, and an official unveiling shouldn’t be too distant.
