It could source power from the Pulsar NS160's engine, however, the company might tweak the powertrain for more power and torque. It is most likely to feature the same NS160-sourced 160.3 cc motor that is known to generate 17.2 PS of max power at 9,000 rpm and 14.6 Nm of peak torque at 7,250 rpm. The engine could come mated to a 5-speed transmission.
