Joining the Modenas V15 cruiser is the 2019 Modenas Pulsar NS160 naked sports, priced at RM7,577 without road tax, insurance or registration. The Pulsar NS160 is designed to appeal to the young rider looking for his or her first affordable motorcycle, or making the move up from underbone motorcycles.

Carrying an air-cooled, SOHC, twin-spark, single-cylinder mill fitted with an oil cooler displacing 160 cc, the Pulsar NS160 produces 15.2 hp at 8,500 rpm and 14.6 Nm at 6,500 rpm. Fed by Bosch EFI, the Pulsar NS160 gets power to the ground via a five-speed gearbox and chain final drive.

Omitting ABS, the NS160 uses single hydraulic discs front and rear, 300 mm and 230 mm respectively, for braking, rolling on MRF tyres. Front suspension is with conventional telescopic forks and Nitrox preload-adjustable monoshock.

Lighting uses standard halogen units with filament bulbs in the turn signals. Inside the cockpit, the instrument cluster uses an analogue tachometer with separate monochrome LCD readout for speed and other information.

Weight for the Pulsar NS160 is claimed to be 142 kg, with seat height at 805 mm and fuel is carried in a 12-litre tank. There are two colour choices – white and blue – for the 2019 Modenas Pulsar NS160 and deliveries to authorised Modenas dealers are expected to begin first week of October.
