  • 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......

  • Pros -- Butter smooth engine and shiftingMost powerful 160cc Dope firing as compared to other 160cc bikeLow maintenanceGr8 suspensionTVS remora performers well on dry wet roadsGr8 avg 45kmph Color schemes 💯🔥Braking is quite good ... Now comes wid ABSCons ---The way they hidden Bike wiring is improper. they should improve that .. RPM meter fluctuates between if throttle held 6000-7000Ignition key switch, fuel tank cap quality should be improvised Issue with battery within first year. replaced within a year in warranty.

    Akshay Rakate few weeks ago
  • It's very powerful bike in 160cc class in naked street bikes,but it will be good if they offer dual channel abs as optional and also 6th gear is little draw back for such a nice machine hope they add these features in next upgrade, And over all this bike is a perfect monster on streets with 16.1ps and best in class 16.4nm torque that can be very easy to flip in city edge to edge and great performance on highway tooGreat bike for its price point

    Dhanumjay Thaty few weeks ago
  • I have used more than one year,Pick up and speed is high compared to other 160 segment bikes.And this weight also high it helps to take more than 115-125 speed without shaking in ride.Look is better semi sporty look. Maintenance cost also normal. While riding i felt like a horse rider and its brakes is normal.

  • Bought it 1month ago. As it is in running-in period I haven"t pushed it hard( maximum 5-6k RPM and 60-65kmph) good acceleration(pick-up) mileage right now is approx 40-43kmpl and engine is refined, no harsh vibration only slight buzz at around 6k RPM and engine heats a bit in traffic but as it is a new engine it"s acceptable. Seating comfort is good for rider and pillion, my mother had no issues, braking is firm on front brake a bit progressive on rear it will get better after 300-400km, tires provide good grip. A fun to ride machine tvs did a good job.
