Bajaj Pulsar NS160 Pros and Cons

  • Pulsar NS160 Advantages

    It packs a pretty powerful engine, Shares the capable perimeter frame with larger Pulsars, Stopping power is pretty good.

  • Pulsar NS160 Disadvantages

    Engine refinement could have been better, It isn’t feature-rich like its segment rivals, It is the heaviest 160cc motorcycle.

  • Expert's Conclusion

    While the Bajaj Pulsar NS160 BS6 might not have many tangible features to justify the price hike due to BS6 norms, it more than makes up for it with raw performance. In fact, it is the most powerful motorcycle in its segment, making it ideal for enthusiasts who prioritise performance over anything else.

Bajaj Pulsar NS160 Expert Review

The Bajaj NS series was an iconic motorcycle lineup and when the series was first launched with the NS200, it showcased Bajaj Auto’s impressive performance and engineering capabilities. The NS160 is the NS200’s smaller sibling. Let’s find out whether it’s worthy of the NS badge:


The NS160 retains the same design as the NS200, including the sharp and muscular fuel tank, beefy side section thanks to the exposed perimeter frame, sleek tail portion with split seat setup. The addition of the inverted fork as part of the 2023 update has made the bike look more muscular. That said, it’s still hard to differentiate it from the NS200 if it weren’t for the stickers.

Engine, Mileage & Performance

The NS160 is powered by a potent 160.3cc air and oiled cooled single cylinder engine that’s  linked to a 5-speed gearbox. The engine produces 17.2PS at 9000rpm and 14.6Nm at 7250rpm. It is happy to be revved hard, and the power delivery is slightly higher between 5500rpm to 9000rpm.

Handling & Ride Quality

With the inverted fork and monoshock, the suspension tuning is the same as the Pulsar NS200. But with less weight, the suspension feels a bit firm and as a consequence, the rear tends to toss the rider when ridden over small but sharp bumps. The bike now feels a lot more planted when riding in the city as the wider tyres have brought it a lot more stability. However, the fatter tyres has made the bike slightly less nimble, but  overall this isn’t a deal breaker.


The riding posture is a bit to the sporty side but it's not too committed thanks to the raised clipons so riders won’t have to worry about discomfort. The slightly rear-set footpegs could’ve been positioned a bit lower as the current layout makes the lower body feel a little cramped. The seat cushioning is good enough to ensure the rider is comfortable in both city commutes and on long rides. It’s important to note that the overall ride quality might be a bit firm, especially on rough roads because of the rear suspension tuning, as mentioned earlier.


Features wise, the Pulsar NS160’s semi-digital instrument cluster gets added bits like  real time mileage and distance to empty readout along with a gear position indicator. Despite these, it still isn’t on par with its modern rivals. Bajaj should’ve included smartphone connectivity with at least turn-by-turn navigation in the NS160.

Should you buy the Bajaj Pulsar NS160?

Overall, the Bajaj Pulsar NS160 is a mixed bag, and the updates have improved certain aspects at the cost of others. But justifying the NS160 as a choice is hard considering the fact that its own sibling, the Pulsar N160 does everything the NS160 does but in a nicer way, not to mention offer more features.

  • Thе Pulsar NS160 is a pockеt rockеt

    My еxpеriеncе with thе Bajaj Pulsar NS160 has bееn nothing short of еxhilarating.

Thе bikе's sharp and modеrn dеsign turns hеads whеrеvеr I go, and thе riding posturе strikеs a balancе bеtwееn sporty and comfortablе. Whilе its fuеl еfficiеncy could bе slightly bеttеr, it's a small compromisе for thе pеrformancе it dеlivеrs. Thе front and rеar disc brakеs providе еxcеllеnt control, еnsuring safеty. Thе Pulsar NS160 is a pockеt rockеt, offеring a mеmorablе riding еxpеriеncе еvеry timе I hit thе road.

  • Affordable and amazing performance

    This affordable Bajaj bike gives a very amazing performance. Its design is very aggressive and gives good riding posture and is the entry level sports bike. Its build quality is very good and is good for long distance touring. It is very easy to handle and the engine performance is commandable. Its handling is one of the best in the segment and provides amazing features. It has multiple great features like an analogue tachometer, digital instrument cluster, digital odometer, digital speedometer, digital clock and many more decent features but lack of modern features like bluetooth connectivity.

  • Nimble and Sporty Companion

    My opinion of the Pulsar NS160 model is that it's an surprising accompaniment that's both athletic and nimble. This commuter motorbike is veritably well seasoned, and it strikes the ideal blend of faculty and dexterity. Bajaj has produced a competitive derisions auto that's excellent in tours of both functionality and 2 Wheeler. It makes an jolt with its useful addition of a important Engine, tasteful 2 Wheeler, and standardissue features. For individualities appearing for a Stylish and dynamic commuter motorbike, the model is a clear fave due to its surprising capacity to give a quick and athletic accompaniment.

  • Bajaj Pulsar NS160 is an extravagant

    Known for its practicality and versatility, the Bajaj Pulsar NS160 is an extravagant two wheeler model that is the best friend of an enthusiastic driver and helps it keep smooth and comfortable on road drives.This scooter relies on great power generation which owes to a better and safer journeys en route. It also provides a good mileage. The price range is absolutely affordable and is totally money worth it. The maintenance is quite good and is very easy to handle. The overall weight of the scooter is not heavy enough to cause a problem while driving around the city hassle-free.

  • Pulsar NS160: A Fun and Sporty Bike

    I have been enjoying the Pulsar NS160 for its sporty performance and affordable price tag. The bike looks sharp and stylish with its split grab rails and split seats. The 163 cc engine produces good power and acceleration makes the bike fun to ride specially in the city. The bike handles well around corners due to its rear monoshock suspension and rear disk brake. The bike comes with features like an all digital instrument cluster and LED headlamps which enhance the sporty appeal. Though the seat can be feel slightly stiff.
