  • Small tyres and absence of rear disc

    6 years ago


    Vansh

    Over all riding experience is good but if you look at ns 160 it feels like a muscular body builder who skipped the leg days . Bajaj should have provided large tyres and also disc brakes on both sides. Everyone having ns 160 complains the same that is about tyres and absence of rear disc brakes .Bajaj should work on this as everyone wants 160 ns with larger tyres.

  • Good looking bike with worst mileage..

    4 years ago


    Shiv Thapa

    Pros:1. Good looks 2. Good handling 3. Great head light for night riding 4. Build quality is much much better than gixxer and hornet. Cons:-1. Mileage is very poor, it's giving me 35km per litre 2. Aho function gonna suck up your battery and it will be useless in 8-9 months. My battery died in 8 months. Though i got new replacement for free.3. Gear shift indicator is missing. 4. Pillion seat height is way too high, it creates problem for people to climb on and climb down esp. For ladies.

  • 45 mileage pocket friendly

    5 years ago


    Kasim

    Buying experience is good but as any typical Indian company i should say very good sales team and worst service team. Riding experience is good, no major issues with bike. Performance is actually really good dual disc variant has some good braking quality. 45 mileage from a naked sports category bike is blessing.

  • Bajaj ns160 great looking bike it has a sporty look and also mileage is very good

    3 years ago


    Ali Gazi

    The bike is good under the given price. Ns160 has similar specifications as of ns200. it was a great experience in riding this bike and mileage is also good as compare to other bikes in this range. I bought this bike 1 year ago and there was no expenditure on it till date except oil and filter change.

  • Beast of naked street

    6 years ago


    Xonit Xaikia

    This bike is total savageness !!!! ever since i started loving bikes pulsar 200ns (sporty yellow one specially) was my love.. I was like totally crazy for that bike . I thought of buying one but i was too young ( @ 9th standard only) . Since then i always admired ns200 . Now i thought to buy the beast . But the mileage gave me a big problem . But now...... 50kmpl ( approx) .. Now that will be efficient beast talking ... The almost exact same super sporty look of pulsar ns200 in ns160.. 200ns is known for its speed and acceleration and now its younger sibling ns160 is carrying on the posterity of awesome acceleration, t-speed and beast look with more fuel efficiency and better handling. This is the best bike in the range of 160cc. Its howl (exhaust sound) is much better then ktm's. And this new laser version has added glowing fur to this howling wolf of the naked street . I am going to book this asap. I want to ride this new beast on the streets and steal the show from my friends who owns ..- honda cb hornet, yamaha r15 , fz v 2.0 , and suzuki gixxer 155 ... I bet this 160cc beast of mine will howl louder then all the rest!!!!! thank you bajaj

    Rakesh K Poojary

    I love this bike this is my favorite bike i have ever ride.D it's very comfortable to ride i love it. The performance of the bike is very good the pickup of the bike is very good. I have rides my friends 200ns it's awesome. The seats are very comfortable. The headlight of the bike is so hot that when i saw the bike for first time i had a huge crush on pulsar 200ns. The exhaust sound is better than ktm duke and rc. Pulsar 200 or 160 ns will be my favorite bike until a die i want this bike but i am a student and my parents won't buy me a bike?

  • Go for it guyz.. No second thought

    6 years ago


    Debanshu Meher

    Hi i just owned a pulsar 160 ns. Its been with me for a week now.I used it for daily commute.Its 15.2 Bhp power creates a magic effect when u accelerate the bike.It never vibrates if u will push it beyond 100 kmph. It has highest ground clearance in its segment i.E. 176 Mm.The headlight has a great lighting.No worries for night ride.The seating for rider and pillion is very good.U can go for long rides without any worries.I have personally travelled 172 km with one go.The front and rear suspension are not too hard and not too soft makes it perfect for indian roads.The tyre is not too fat or thin perfect for grip handling and cornering.I have a grey colour bike.The bike looks is superb nothing to talk about that.The engine is very smooth with bajaj gives a very good service.And the spare parts also easily available. The bike gives me around 46kmpl overall.

  • Proud to be in a pulsar family.....Pulsar maniac

    5 years ago


    Mohsin

    Actually i was going to yamaha fz 2.0 but i really didn’t liked its design the tail section depressed me a lot and no kick available in fz model which will be a drawback to the fz while starting in winter conditions......And also the maintenance is quite high in yamaha spare parts are also too high......Then after this i gone for pulsar ns160 dual disc version really the looks of pulsar ns 160 dual disc is really awesome no bike can beat pulsar ns 160 in terms of looks....Riding quality.....Engine refinement.....People uses pulsar ns for stunts by looking its engine power and durability which other bikes can do.

  • Ok bike with horrible maintenance

    2 years ago


    Vamsi

    1.My bike got engine oil sensor problem after 1st service. Its been 5 years now but no one is able to solve it.
    2. Clutch plate gone after one year.
    3. Engine gives heavy smell if i ride for long distance like 60 km. Even engine oil seal get spoiled and it was leaking engine oil.
    4. Worst ever service by Bajaj. They charge like hell even for small repair and bunch of fools work in service center with so much attitude.
    5. This bike cant move when its in 2nd gear

  • 45 mileage pocket friendly

    5 years ago


    Kasim

    Buying experience is good but as any typical Indian company i should say very good sales team and worst service team. Riding experience is good, no major issues with bike. Performance is actually really good dual disc variant has some good braking quality. 45 mileage from a naked sports category bike is blessing.

    3 years ago


    Ali Gazi

    The bike is good under the given price. Ns160 has similar specifications as of ns200. it was a great experience in riding this bike and mileage is also good as compare to other bikes in this range. I bought this bike 1 year ago and there was no expenditure on it till date except oil and filter change.

  • Beast of naked street

    6 years ago


    Xonit Xaikia

    This bike is total savageness !!!! ever since i started loving bikes pulsar 200ns (sporty yellow one specially) was my love.. I was like totally crazy for that bike . I thought of buying one but i was too young ( @ 9th standard only) . Since then i always admired ns200 . Now i thought to buy the beast . But the mileage gave me a big problem . But now...... 50kmpl ( approx) .. Now that will be efficient beast talking ... The almost exact same super sporty look of pulsar ns200 in ns160.. 200ns is known for its speed and acceleration and now its younger sibling ns160 is carrying on the posterity of awesome acceleration, t-speed and beast look with more fuel efficiency and better handling. This is the best bike in the range of 160cc. Its howl (exhaust sound) is much better then ktm's. And this new laser version has added glowing fur to this howling wolf of the naked street . I am going to book this asap. I want to ride this new beast on the streets and steal the show from my friends who owns ..- honda cb hornet, yamaha r15 , fz v 2.0 , and suzuki gixxer 155 ... I bet this 160cc beast of mine will howl louder then all the rest!!!!! thank you bajaj

    Debanshu Meher

    Hi i just owned a pulsar 160 ns. Its been with me for a week now.I used it for daily commute.Its 15.2 Bhp power creates a magic effect when u accelerate the bike.It never vibrates if u will push it beyond 100 kmph. It has highest ground clearance in its segment i.E. 176 Mm.The headlight has a great lighting.No worries for night ride.The seating for rider and pillion is very good.U can go for long rides without any worries.I have personally travelled 172 km with one go.The front and rear suspension are not too hard and not too soft makes it perfect for indian roads.The tyre is not too fat or thin perfect for grip handling and cornering.I have a grey colour bike.The bike looks is superb nothing to talk about that.The engine is very smooth with bajaj gives a very good service.And the spare parts also easily available. The bike gives me around 46kmpl overall.

    Actually i was going to yamaha fz 2.0 but i really didn’t liked its design the tail section depressed me a lot and no kick available in fz model which will be a drawback to the fz while starting in winter conditions......And also the maintenance is quite high in yamaha spare parts are also too high......Then after this i gone for pulsar ns160 dual disc version really the looks of pulsar ns 160 dual disc is really awesome no bike can beat pulsar ns 160 in terms of looks....Riding quality.....Engine refinement.....People uses pulsar ns for stunts by looking its engine power and durability which other bikes can do.

  • Ok bike with horrible maintenance

    2 years ago


    Vamsi

    1.My bike got engine oil sensor problem after 1st service. Its been 5 years now but no one is able to solve it.
    2. Clutch plate gone after one year.
    3. Engine gives heavy smell if i ride for long distance like 60 km. Even engine oil seal get spoiled and it was leaking engine oil.
    4. Worst ever service by Bajaj. They charge like hell even for small repair and bunch of fools work in service center with so much attitude.
    5. This bike cant move when its in 2nd gear

  • Small tyres and absence of rear disc

    6 years ago


    Vansh

    Over all riding experience is good but if you look at ns 160 it feels like a muscular body builder who skipped the leg days . Bajaj should have provided large tyres and also disc brakes on both sides. Everyone having ns 160 complains the same that is about tyres and absence of rear disc brakes .Bajaj should work on this as everyone wants 160 ns with larger tyres.

  • Good looking bike with worst mileage..

    4 years ago


    Shiv Thapa

    Pros:1. Good looks 2. Good handling 3. Great head light for night riding 4. Build quality is much much better than gixxer and hornet. Cons:-1. Mileage is very poor, it's giving me 35km per litre 2. Aho function gonna suck up your battery and it will be useless in 8-9 months. My battery died in 8 months. Though i got new replacement for free.3. Gear shift indicator is missing. 4. Pillion seat height is way too high, it creates problem for people to climb on and climb down esp. For ladies.
