Is Bajaj Pulsar NS160 ultimate in Performance?

A famous motorbike lineup, the Bajaj Pulsar NS 160 is showcasing the engineering prowess and remarkable performance of Bajaj Auto. The little sister of the NS200 is the NS160.
Despite having such an outdated appearance, the Pulsar NS160 manages to seem fairly athletic and might easily pass for the NS200. The bike feels front-heavy because of its nearly triangular profile and large fuel tank, but more on that later. The USD forks and the borrowed N250/F250 wheels are the refreshing parts. The NS160 looks more appealing and has more aesthetic appeal thanks to both parts. Also, the NS160 maintains its general athletic style.
Engine and Gearbox
A powerful 160.3-cc air- and oil-cooled single-cylinder engine mated to a 5-speed gearbox powers the NS160. At 9000 rpm, the engine generates 17.2 PS, and at 7250 rpm, 14.6 Nm of torque. It responds well to high revs and delivers slightly more power between 5500 and 9000 rpm.

The NS160's fuel efficiency was 52.2 kmpl. That's a rather impressive number, especially when combined with the bike's 12-liter fuel capacity. The bike should be able to cover about 620 kilometres on average in a single trip.

It is in the features list that Bajaj may make significant progress. With its halogen lights and semi-digital instrument console, the NS160's configuration is somewhat antiquated, especially considering that its competitors have LED lighting and a fully digital console. Now it boasts dual-channel ABS, which improves the safety net and somewhat improves the riding experience overall.

The safety features of the Bajaj Pulsar N160 align with its performance-driven design. An Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) version, which Bajaj Auto offers as an option, helps to further improve safety by preventing wheel lock-ups, particularly when braking hard or in slick conditions. The incorporation of ABS boosts motorcyclists' confidence, particularly in situations involving uncertain traffic patterns.

Suspension and Brakes
The NS160 has a perimeter frame with a preload-adjustable Nitrox monoshock at the back and a 33mm inverted fork up front. Grimeca callipers and twin-channel ABS are standard, and a 300mm disc up front and a 230mm disc down the back handle braking duties. 17-inch alloy wheels with 100/80-section front and 130/70-section rear MRF Nylogrip Zappers are fitted to the bike. It has a 151 kg curb weight when new.
  • Affordably priced
  • A healthy dosage of handling performance is also excellent.
  • Loses out on characteristics
  • At higher revs, engine refinement isn't that good.
  • Among the heaviest motorcycles in the class.
Price and Variants
The cost of the Bajaj Pulsar NS160 Single Channel ABS variant is Rs. 1,24,612. The Pulsar NS160 Dual Channel ABS is the other option, and it costs Rs. 1,37,577. The prices listed for the Pulsar NS160 are ex-showroom prices.
