Bajaj Pulsar NS160 Price

The Bajaj Pulsar NS160 is available in a single variant and is now priced at Rs 1,23,750 (ex-showroom Delhi). It is offered in Metallic Pearl White, Burnt Red, Satin Blue, and Pewter Grey paint jobs. 

Bajaj Pulsar NS160 Features

The Pulsar NS160 comes with sharp, aggressive streetfighter styling with a muscular mass-forward look. It gets a halogen headlamp with pilot lamps and a semi-digital instrument cluster. The raised clip-on handlebars and split seats ensure a comfortable yet slightly sporty riding position. To keep costs in check, Bajaj has equipped the Pulsar NS160 with single-channel ABS.

The new greener 160.3cc air and oil-cooled motor now gets fuel-injection, delivering 17.2PS at 9,000rpm and 14.6Nm at 7250rpm, linked to a 5-speed gearbox. For reference, the BS4 Pulsar NS160 made 15.5PS at 8500rpm and 14.6Nm at 6500rpm. While power is up by 1.7PS, torque output remains the same.The new motor, however, generates peak power and torque at a higher rpm than before.

Its braking setup consists of a single 260mm petal disc up front and a 230mm disc at the rear. The NS160 gets single-channel ABS. The bike’s 17-inch alloys are shod with 90/90-section front and 120/80-section rear tyres.

Pulsar NS160 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.

Engine and Performance

The bike draws power from a 160.3cc, single-cylinder, oil-cooled mill that generates 15.5PS at 8,500rpm and a peak torque of 14.6Nm at 6,500rpm. A slick 5-speed transmission transfers power to the rear wheel via chain drive. Despite having a smaller capacity engine, the NS160 feels eager and likes being pushed to the limit. The meat of the power lies in the low and mid-range. The bikes power delivery feels linear and its quick to eat through the revs before hitting a top whack of a little over 120kmph (speedo indicated).

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.
