    Bajaj Pulsar NS160: My Trusty City Zoomer 

    As the proud owner of a Bajaj Pulsar NS160, I have had quite the adventure zipping through the busy streets and occasional long stretches of my city. Purchased just over a year ago, this bike with its 160.3 cc engine offers the zest I need with a peak power of 15.5 PS and believe me, it does make a difference. The torque of 14 Nm coupled with a 5 speed gearbox ensures a smooth ride even in tricky traffic.Riding comfort is considerable, thanks to its well seat and upright riding posture, making even the longer commutes manageable.

    promises and delivers performance 

    My NS160 has a 160.3cc engine , single-cylinder, oil-cooled, BS6 engine. It offers good performance for city traffic and comfortable highway riding . And it claims a mileage of 52 kmpl on highway .The NS160 offers a comfortable, upright riding posture with a slightly raised handlebar, a well-cushioned split seat design for rider . It lacks additional safety features like airbags or traction control that might be found in some bigger bikes. However it is not a most powerful engine.

    The Bajaj NS 160 delivers 

    The bajaj ns 160 delivers a thrilling riding experience with its lively engine and impressive acceleration, Captivating riders with its agility and performance on both urban streets and highways alike.However, Amidst its exhilarating performance, I have concerns about noticeable vibrations, Particularly at higher speeds, Which may detract from the overall comfort, Warranting consideration for those planning longer journeys.Additionally, While the ns 160 boasts a sturdy build, Certain plastic components have been less durable, Necessitating careful handling to avoid potential damage and ensure longevity.In terms of fuel efficiency, The ns 160 offers decent mileage of 40- 42 km / litre, Making it an economical choice for daily commutes and occasional extended rides.Its efficient fuel consumption contributes to its practicality and affordability, Appealing to riders seeking a balance between performance and cost-effectiveness.The ns 160's standout feature lies in its quick pickup, Allowing for seamless overtakes and swift maneuvers in congested traffic conditions.This attribute enhances the overall riding experience, Instilling confidence in riders as they navigate various road scenarios with ease and precision.Furthermore, The bike is equipped with modern amenities such as a digital instrument cluster and led lighting, Adding to its appeal and ensuring convenience for riders.Despite its strengths, The ns 160 does have its drawbacks, Which potential buyers should consider before making a purchase decision.The presence of vibrations, While manageable for short rides, May become bothersome during extended journeys, Affecting overall comfort and rider satisfaction.Additionally, While the bike's build quality is generally robust, Certain plastic components may raise concerns about their durability over time, Necessitating cautious handling to prevent damage.When it comes to after-sale service, Bajaj's service network generally offers reliable support to ns 160 owners, Ensuring prompt assistance and maintenance when needed.However, The quality of service may vary depending on the location and dealership, Highlighting the importance of choosing a reputable service center for any necessary repairs or maintenance tasks.Also it has a drawback as the vehicle is heavyweight of please 50- 60 kg to lift so i recommend light weight persons to check before choosing.At the end it is an economically best vehicle with a decent speed and mileage with a sports bike aerodynamics.

    Testing Out the TVS Apache RTR 160 4V 

    Having driven the TVS Apache RTR 160 4V for a few months, I am quite pleased with its performance. The upgraded 159 cc 4 valve engine is a delight, providing better power and torque than its siblings. The ride quality is superb all thanks to the optimized chassis and suspension setup. On city roads and highways alike, it proves to be a smooth operator.On the downside, the fuel economy is a bit less than I expected, I average around 40 kmpl.which, although decent but it is not the best in this segment.

    indian bike and average perfoemance 

    The one thing that makes TVS Apache RTR 160 4V unique from others is it offers high power with a bike that looks stylish. The driving public appreciate the compounded aspects of its smooth engine, great acceleration and agile handling, a performance standard that stirs racing emotions.

Still lurking though, the few complained they found it uncomfortable for long rides and other enhancing measures, such as wind protection, for the cruising at high speed were what they also suggested.
