Bajaj Pulsar NS160 generates 16.8 bhp of power and 14.6 nm of torque from its 160.3cc engine. Single cylinder engine of Pulsar NS160 has a 5 speed manual gearbox. With both rear and front disk brakes, Bajaj Pulsar NS160 also has an anti-locking braking system. This 151 kg bike is available in 3 colours.

The Bajaj NS160 is a more premium offering that is positioned a notch above the Pulsar 150, both in terms of pricing and features.

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.
