Seen on display during the launch of the 2019 Modenas Pulsar NS160 and Modenas Kriss 110 last week, here’s a gallery of a modded Pulsar and Kriss, shown alongside the standard models. Accessories for the change-over come from Givi and Racing Boy, two names which are familiar to Malaysian riders.

Amongst the accessories shown are brake levers, side stand, side mirrors, brake reservoir as well as touring style hard bags from Givi. These two bikes showcase the versatility and practicality of both Modenas bikes and the extent to which accessorising and modification can take place to the needs of the rider.

As a budget commuter motorcycle in the underbone category, the Kriss 110 is the cheapest bike available, priced at RM3,377 and targeted to those in the lower income bracket that require practical daily transport, especially the younger riders. Using an engine sourced from China manufacturer Zhongshen, the Kriss 110 has bodywork designed by Modenas in Malaysia and puts out 6.5 hp at 8,000 rpm and 6.7 Nm of torque at 6,000 rpm.

Meanwhile the Pulsar NS160 slots in below the Pulsar NS200 and RS200 and competes in the 150 cc motorcycle category, a segment that includes the Yamaha YZF-R15. Coming with a single-cylinder OHC, twin-spark, air-cooled DTS-1 engine fed by EFI, the RM7,577 Pulsar NS160 produces 14.7 hp at 8,500 rpm and 13.99 Nm of torque at 6,500 rpm.
