    Q. What is the performance of this Bike - Pulsar NS160?
    • The bike's 160cc motor produces 15.5PS of power at 8500rpm and 14.6Nm of torque at 6500rpm. In terms of performance the bike picks up momentum swiftly and offers a linear power delivery. However, it does lack refinement. Braking is done by a 240mm disc at the front, and 130mm drum at the rear. Suspension duties are handled by telescopic front fork and a rear gas-charged monoshock damper. The bike weighs 142 kg (kerb). The Bajaj Pulsar NS 160 is a good value for money motorcycle for its price range. The engine refinement may disappoint you, but it more than makes up for it with its fun-to-ride character.
