Bajaj Pulsar NS160 Highlights

Bajaj has launched a limited edition model of the NS160 in Colombia. It features unique neon yellow decals paired with a white and black paint scheme. To sweeten the deal, the bike also comes equipped with a couple of extra goodies like knuckle guards, tank pads and frame sliders. Apart from this, the bike remains unchanged. 

The Bajaj NS160 comes with single-channel ABS, priced at Rs 92,595 (ex-showroom Pune). That’s a price bump of a little over Rs 6,500 compared to the non-ABS variant. Though the NS160 looks identical to its elder sibling, the Pulsar NS200, it gets an all-new engine, a slick gearbox and a different set of tyres. It's aggressive and muscular styling paired with new graphics make it stand out on the road. The Pulsar NS160 is powered by a 160.3cc, single-cylinder, oil-cooled motor derived from the discontinued Pulsar AS 150. It produces a peak power of 15.5PS at 8500rpm and 14.6Nm of torque at 6500rpm, mated to a 5-speed transmission. 

The Pulsar 160NS borrows the same perimeter frame from the NS200 and is paired with a box-section swingarm. Suspension duties are handled by conventional telescopic forks and an adjustable monoshock at the rear. Its braking setup consists of a single 240mm petal disc up front and a 130mm drum unit at the rear. The bike’s 17-inch alloys come shod with 80/100-section front and 110/80-section rear tyres. It competes with the TVS Apache RTR 160 4V, Honda CB Hornet 160R, Suzuki Gixxer and the soon to be launched Yamaha FZ 3.0.

Expert Review

Bajaj launched the Pulsar NS160 to tap into the fast-growing 160cc segment which offers a balance between style and performance on a budget. Though the NS160 looks identical to its elder sibling, the Pulsar NS200, it gets an all-new engine, a slick gearbox and a different set of tyres. Its aggressive and muscular styling, paired with new graphics, make it stand out on the road. Moreover, the Pulsar NS160 is the only bike in its segment that features a perimeter frame.

From the borrowed components, the most noticeable ones are the instrument cluster, the split-seat configuration, rearview mirrors, the headlamp unit and turn indicators. The differentiating parameters include thinner fork tubes at the front, skinnier tyres and the NS160 badging. 

The Pulsar NS 160 is powered by a 160.3cc, single-cylinder, oil-cooled motor derived from the discontinued Pulsar AS 150. It produces a peak power of 15.5PS at 8500rpm and a maximum of 14.6Nm at 6500rpm, mated to a 5-speed transmission. Though a smaller motor, the NS160 likes to be pushed hard and climbs through the revs quite quickly. The power delivery is linear through the rev range and the engine felt quite tractable in our roll-on tests.

Its front disc and a rear drum brake offers good feedback and brings the bike to a standstill as and when required. The addition of single-channel ABS should further improve its braking prowess. Suspension duties are handled by telescopic forks at the front and a Nitrox monoshock at the rear. Its chiselled fuel tank makes it easier to grip the tank while its perimeter frame improves handling.

Design and Features

The Bajaj Pulsar NS160 retains its aggressive and muscular design with a sharp headlamp unit paired with a unique visor up front. Pan to the mid-section and you’d notice a sculpted fuel tank with the Pulsar insignia on it that gives the bike a very premium feel. The tank shrouds have ‘160’ imprinted on it in bold, which gives it a fresh new look. Of the three colour options (red, blue and grey), Fossil Grey is the most striking to look at.

The new dual-tone colour scheme suits the muscular styling of the Pulsar NS160. On the other hand, the analogue-digital instrument cluster has been borrowed from its elder sibling, the Pulsar NS200. A large analogue tachometer sits smack in the middle while other readouts, like the speed and fuel-gauge, sit to the right. There’s also a gear shift light that sits atop the tachometer, slightly to the right while the tell-tale lights are placed on the left-hand side of the console. Overall, the level of fit and finish of various parts is on par with market standards.    

The overall stance of the bike is aggressive and signifies speed, excitement and power. In terms of riding posture, the NS160 has a slightly more committed riding posture when compared to its rival, the TVS Apache RTR 160 4V, thanks to its rear-set footpegs and clip-on handlebars. Hence, touring on this bike could get a bit tiring.

The Bajaj Pulsar NS160 measures in at 2012mm long, 803.5mm wide and 1060mm high. Ground clearance stands at 176mm, while its wheelbase is around 1363mm.

Braking and Handling

Built on a perimeter frame, the NS160 rides on telescopic forks and a Nitrox monoshock at the rear. The aforementioned setup enables the rider to push the bike around corners and on a straight line with confidence. Daily commutes and pothole-ridden roads aren’t an issue either as the bike is perfectly set up to handle them. On the braking front, the NS160 gets a single 240mm disc with ABS at the front and a 130mm drum unit at the rear, both of which provide a strong and progressive bite. Unfortunately, the NS160 misses out on a rear disc and ABS. Its 17-inch alloys wheels come wrapped in 80/100-section front and 110/80-section rear tyres.

 

 

 

 

Safety and Features

The Bajaj Pulsar NS160's braking setup works quite well and provides ample support to bring the bike to a halt. Additionally, the bike now comes with single-channel ABS which should further improve its braking power.
