Pulsar NS160 latest price is higher by 15 percent over its BS4 variant. We list at what intervals and by how much has Bajaj increased its tags…
Price hikes have almost become a monthly affair with most manufacturers now. Once upon a time, reasons were given for price increments but nowadays, makers simply update new prices on their websites and that is about it – no reason, no justification! In fact, it has become unreasonable for some motorcycles. But the onus lies with the government also for bombing them (the makers) with so many regulations within very short spans.
The latest motorcycle to witness a price hike is Bajaj Pulsar NS160. Its BS6 compliant version was launched back in April this year. Here is the price increment table for this streetfighter..
