Bajaj Pulsar NS160 Latest Updates

Bajaj has hiked prices for its Pulsar BS6 range. The Pulsar NS160 BS6 receives a price hike of Rs 2,503. The updated prices are Rs 1,05,901. Know the updated Pulsar prices here.

The Pulsar NS160 is Bajaj’s answer to the 150-160cc streetfighter segment that’s currently populated by the TVS Apache RTR 160 4V BS6, Suzuki Gixxer BS6 and the Yamaha FZ-S BS6. Check out more details in our launch story here.

Pulsar NS160 Specifications

The Bajaj Pulsar NS160 BS6 is powered by a 160.3cc single-cylinder air-cooled engine with oil cooler. It churns out 17.2PS at 9000rpm and 14.6Nm at 7250rpm, making it the most powerful motorcycle in its segment. Comparatively, the Bajaj Pulsar NS160 BS4 makes 15.5PS at 8500rpm and 14.6Nm at 6500rpm. The engine is mated to a 5-speed transmission. The Bajaj Pulsar NS160 BS6 is built on a perimeter frame with telescopic front fork and Nitrox monoshock at the rear. The motorcycle comes to a halt using a 260mm front and a 230mm rear petal disc with single-channel ABS. Bajaj has wrapped the 17-inch alloy wheels with 90-section front and 120-section rear tubeless tyres. Thanks to the emission restricting equipment, the kerb weight has gone up by 3kg, at 151kg kerb. The wheelbase has been increased by 2mm, so it now measures at 1372mm.

Pulsar NS160 Design

From the Bajaj Pulsar NS160 BS6’s looks, it is evident that the motorcycle carries the genes of its bigger brother, the Bajaj Pulsar NS200 BS6. The muscular fuel tank is complemented by the sleek-looking headlamp up front. It comes with a split seat setup and raised clip-on handlebars to ensure sporty yet comfortable ergonomics. The rear portion could’ve looked even more aggressive without the bulky tyre hugger. However, the tyre hugger is quite practical in keeping muck and splashes away, particularly during monsoons. The underbelly exhaust further adds to the centralised mass.

Pulsar NS160 Features

The Bajaj Pulsar NS160 BS6 comes with a halogen headlamp with pilot laps on both sides. The indicators are bulbs whereas the tail lamp is LED. Bajaj could’ve equipped the motorcycle with an LED headlamp. The bike comes with a semi-digital instrument cluster which houses the regular run-of-the-mill information like speed, revs, fuel level, clock, odometer and trip meter readings. There is no gear position indicator but it does get a shift light, instead. As far as safety is concerned, it features single-channel ABS.

Bajaj Pulsar NS160 Competitors

The Bajaj Pulsar NS160 BS6 rivals the Suzuki Gixxer BS6, the TVS Apache RTR 160 4V BS6, the Yamaha FZ-S Fi Version 3.0 BS6 and the upcoming BS6-compliant Honda CB Hornet 160R in the 150-160cc naked segment.

Editor's View of Bajaj Pulsar NS160

  • Upside

    It packs a pretty powerful engine, Shares the capable perimeter frame with larger Pulsars, Stopping power is pretty good.

  • Downside

    Engine refinement could have been better, It isn’t feature-rich like its segment rivals, It is the heaviest 160cc motorcycle.

  • Our Verdict

    While the Bajaj Pulsar NS160 BS6 might not have many tangible features to justify the price hike due to BS6 norms, it more than makes up for it with raw performance. In fact, it is the most powerful motorcycle in its segment, making it ideal for enthusiasts who prioritise performance over anything else.

Q. What is the benefit of short length exhaust of pulsar ns 160?
  • First of all the exhaust system is called ' underbelly exhaust system'. It is designed in such a way for bike stability and excellent weight distribution. Also, it gives some aesthetic looks to the vehicle. But from all the main reason is the weight distribution.
Q. The place where I live has stretches of road filled with potholes. NS 160 has a very hard set rear monoshock suspension. I have changed the setting for maximum softness but still my back aches. Can I replace the stock monoshock with let's say Unicorn or FZ or if possible Xpulse? Would that be possible and if so then will it have any negative effect on the bike apart from less confidence while cornering?
  • We will not suggest you to install other bike\'s suspension in Pulsar NS160. Though mono-shock suspension works on the same principle in all bikes it might not possible that we can install any suspension in any bike. Also, installing unauthorized suspension may hamper the ride quality and bike\'s handling too. So, we would suggest you to contact the nearest authorised service center to get better help. Check out details.

Q. Which is the best Apache 160 4v or pulsar ns 160?
  • The Pulsar NS 160 ticks all the right boxes when it comes to style, performance, ride and handling, save for refinement. The new NS 160 is a worthy contender and makes a strong case for itself in this highly competitive 160cc segment. On the other hand, if a bike has to survive in the cut-throat 160cc two-wheeler segment, it needs to be competitively priced and pack enough performance to keep riders happy. Thankfully, the Apache RTR 160 4V delivers well on both fronts with class leading features and a price tag that starts at Rs 81,490 (ex-showroom for carb, single-disc variant). However, it doesn’t feel as confident under hard braking as the Bajaj Pulsar NS 160 or the Honda Hornet. That said, the Apache RTR 160 4V is not only the most refined RTR we have ridden till date but also one of the most refined 160cc motorcycles to be ever produced in India. Do take a test ride in order to judge your riding comfort.

Q. I am buying ns 160 is it good or bad in Performance?. plz suggest me
  • 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.
  • In this 160 cc segment, it is one of the better bike as good performance and ride handelling is good
  • Wait for its upgraded version. which might come in market after auto expo 2020

    I like everything about this bike, right from styling to its ride comfort. however I feel apprehensive of its built quality. it does sound odd from front when you go over a bad patch or run over a speed breaker. and secondly I feel pillion seat is really uncomfortable though one could manage a short ride.Lastly whosoever intends to buy must buy during day time and check vehicle properly and go for a test ride before delivery.

  • 5.0

    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......

  • 3.8

    Apart from the age-old NS design, the bike is generally decent. A little on the heavier side but flick. The pillion seat is the worst thing about the bike; very little padding and literally "pain in the butt" experience is guaranteed. Highway rides are fun but the engine still overheats if pushed hard. City commute is a breeze.

  • 5.0

    I have purchase many naked bike but I like the ns160 more because is it sound it's speed it's mileage the max. Speed I have drive is 127km/h I got the mileage of 42-47 km/pl if you want to buy any 160cc bike I would suggest you to buy ns160

  • 5.0

    bought this bike for daily commute to work, it is definitely powerful and stylish with minimalistic fuss on it. at present it is giving me around 45 kmpl in city.one thing it misses out is gear shift indicator. rest everything is fine.
