About Pulsar NS160

Bajaj Pulsar NS160 is a commuter bike available at a starting price of Rs. 1,10,475 in India. It is available in only 1 variant and 7 colours. The Pulsar NS160 is powered by 160.3cc BS6 engine which develops a power of 17.03 bhp and a torque of 14.6 Nm. With both front and rear disc brakes, Bajaj Pulsar NS160 comes up with anti-locking braking system. This Pulsar NS160 bike weighs 151 kg and has a fuel tank capacity of 12 liters.

The Bajaj NS160 is a more premium offering that is positioned a notch above the Pulsar 150, both in terms of pricing and features. The NS160 notably retains all the design elements from its bigger sibling, the NS200. One can only differentiate between the two by the NS160’s smaller tyre profiles and smaller 240mm front disc. However, it sports the same perimeter frame as the NS200, making it a better handling motorcycle compared to the Pulsar 150.

The NS160 uses a 160cc single-cylinder oil-cooled engine that is BS6-compliant. This engine is tuned to deliver 15.3bhp of power and 14.6Nm of torque and is mated to a five-speed gearbox. The motorcycle is suspended by telescopic forks up front and a gas charged monoshock at the rear. The motorcycle sports split-five-spoke alloy wheels shod with 80/100 front and 110/80 rear tyres. For braking, the motorcycle employs disc brakes at both ends and is equipped with single-channel ABS.

Bajaj offers the Pulsar NS160 in Metallic Pearl White, Burnt Red and Pewter Grey colours. Meanwhile, in terms of competition, the motorcycle goes up against the Honda CB Hornet 160R, Honda XBlade, Suzuki Gixxer and Yamaha FZS 3.0 FI in India.
