Bajaj Pulsar NS160 Bike Latest Updates

Bajaj has launched the updated 2023 Pulsar NS160 with a bunch of new hardware. Head here for the launch story.

The Bajaj Pulsar NS160 is a streetfighter based on the Pulsar NS200 with a smaller engine to take on the 160cc sporty bike segment in India.

Bajaj Pulsar NS160 Engine

The Bajaj Pulsar NS160 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. The engine is mated to a 5-speed transmission. Adding to that, the updated NS160 makes the same output figures but is BS6 Phase 2-ready. Built on a perimeter frame, the updated NS160 runs a 33mm upside down fork and Nitrox monoshock at the rear. Braking is done via a 300mm front and a 230mm rear circular disc with dual-channel ABS and Grimeca calipers. Bajaj has wrapped the 17-inch alloy wheels with 100/80 and 130/70 section MRF Nylogrip Zapper tyres. It tips the scales at 152kg kerb. The previous-gen NS 160 runs a telescopic fork and gets a 260mm front and a 230mm rear petal disc with single-channel ABS paired with ByBre callipers. The 17-inch alloys are wrapped in 90-section front and 120-section rear tubeless tyres. It is also a kilo lighter at 151kg kerb.

Bajaj Pulsar NS160 Design

From the Bajaj Pulsar NS160’s looks, it is evident that the motorcycle carries the genes of its bigger brother, the Bajaj Pulsar NS200. 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.

Bajaj Pulsar NS160 Features

The Bajaj Pulsar NS160 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. The updated model gets a revised console and additionally indicates the gear position, real time mileage and distance to empty readouts. It still misses out on smartphone connectivity and navigation.

Bajaj Pulsar NS160 Competitors

The Bajaj Pulsar NS160 rivals the Suzuki Gixxer, the TVS Apache RTR 160 4V, the Yamaha FZ-S Fi V4, the Hero Xtreme 160R in the 150-160cc naked segment.

What is good and bad in Pulsar NS160 Bike?

  • Pulsar NS160 Positives

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

  • Pulsar NS160 Negatives

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

  • Expert's Conclusion

    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. Which engine oil is best for Bajaj Pulsar NS160 FI ABS? Need to know mineral engine oil changing time?
  • For the first 10k km use the recommended bajaj engine oil and don't listen to the bajaj guys when they say the oil lasts 10k km. Mandatorily replace oil every 4 to 5k km if not it'll get thicker and your engine will over heat. After 10k km you can switch to any synthetic or semi synthetic oil. I have tried both motul 20W50 synthetic and semi synthetic oil and compared to bajaj oil they are way better, you'll feel your gearbox has become softer and you'll feel the decrease in engine vibrations and has become rev friendly.
  • The recommended engine oil grade for Bajaj Pulsar 160NS is 20W50 JASO MA2. Moreover, the engine oil needs to be replaced at 1st, 3rd, and 5th service. For more details, you may refer to the user manual of your vehicle.
