Design and features

The 2023 NS160’s and NS200’s designs remain the same as the outgoing models. Both bikes come with notable design elements such as an aggressive front fascia, a muscular tank, split-set-up seats, grab rails, and an underbelly exhaust, among others. Furthermore, these bikes have been offered in four different colours: Burnt red, Satin blue, Metallic Pearl white, and Pewter grey.

The new NS160 and NS200 models come equipped with an upgraded semi-digital instrument console, which now includes additional information such as a gear position indicator, DTE (Distance To Empty), and real-time fuel efficiency. The console also continues to display essential details like time, speedometer, tachometer, and odometer, among others. Other notable features of these motorcycles include dual-channel ABS as a standard feature, along with reliable disc brakes and LED units.
