  • Bajaj Pulsar NS160
  • Pulsar ns 160 is a bike which is value for money which give oveall performance amazingly, I enjoying ns since 6 years but i ever paid extra for it.It is all most all equal to ns200 but only it vibrates after reaching the 9000 rpm but we miss led head light ghear position indicator and bluetooth connectivity which is provided in mt-15 and we belive that bajaj will provide all these requirements as much as possible.

  • This is the most underrated bike, in India looks like a beast and runs like a beast, very low maintenance cost gives around 42.5kmpl in city commute. Best for commuting and touring literally in love with the bike, comfort for pillion is poor but rider comfort is the best, road stability and pickup and mileage and build quality and maintenance is the best looks great......
