The manufacturer has only hiked prices of the Thar diesel 4X2 at the moment. However, prices for the Thar AX(O) 1.5-litre diesel manual and LX 2.0-litre automatic variants remain unchanged for now.

    At Rs 1.85 lakh, the Bajaj Pulsar NS400Z is the most affordable 40hp bike in India. Would you pick it over similarly priced bikes with less power and features?

    Yes, 40hp at this price is unheard of!



    No, it's a decade-old bike in a revamped suit.



    Great value but doesn't look unique enough.
