  • 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......

Pulsar NS160 User Reviews
  • An excellent bike, With magnificent led head lamp where one can fall in love, The sporty monster look which assures racers as well as for the riders.The most important rear wheel, 13/70 dimension.Xblade vows itself with dual powerful disc brakes.The elegant colors highlights the charm of the body of the vehicle.One could be in love with the dual exhaust which gives riders a jet plane engine sound, Anybody could be mad after this.Personal experience about the powerful abs of the vehicle is massive, Which doesn't allows the riders to fall anyhow.Xblade by its name itself for any rider could be tearing of the road.Talking about the mileage and the pick-up its just awesome, Could be described as the rider could be missed in flick of the finger.

  • Honda X-blade is super looking and stylish vehicle. It gives good grip on-road and a decent mileage too.Although the BS6 variant is a bit more pricey, I was able to buy it because of really good financing options and thorough assistance from VFM Honda, Bangalore.
