Bajaj Pulsar NS160 Latest Updates

Ahead of its official launch, the Bajaj Pulsar NS160 BS6 has started arriving at select dealerships across the country. Unofficial bookings are open for Rs 5,000, but the token amount may vary from dealer to dealer. The price of the motorcycle had already been revealed in our earlier report. It costs Rs 1,03,309 (ex-showroom Mumbai), making it Rs 9,203 more expensive than the BS4 Pulsar NS160. Expect Bajaj to launch the motorcycle in a few weeks.

The BS6 Pulsar NS160 features a fuel-injected 160cc air-cooled engine with oil cooler. It is likely to make slightly less power and/or torque than the BS4 bike because of emission restrictions. For reference, the carburetted BS4-compliant Pulsar NS160 makes 15.5PS at 8500rpm and 14.6Nm at 6500rpm. The 5-speed transmission will be retained in the BS6 model.

The underpinnings have also remained unchanged: it continues with a telescopic front fork and a gas-charged rear monoshock. Brakes include the same 260mm front and 230mm rear petal disc on both ends with single-channel ABS.

Overall, the price hike feels a bit too steep considering the only addition is fuel injection. We wish Bajaj had offered at least an LED headlamp, like most of the BS6-compliant version of BS4 two-wheelers, for better value.

When launched, the Bajaj Pulsar NS 160 BS6 will rival the TVS Apache RTR 160 4V BS6, Suzuki Gixxer, Honda CB Hornet 160R and Yamaha FZ-S FI V3.0 BS6.

Pulsar NS160 Specifications

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).

Pulsar NS160 Features

The Bajaj Pulsar NS 160 borrows its looks from its older sibling, the Bajaj Pulsar NS 200. The naked looks appealing with its sharp-looking headlight, the chiseled fuel tank and extensions. The dual-tone theme and 160 font on the tank extension look are sure to grab some attention. In terms of features we get a semi-digital instrument console and clip-on handlebars.

Bajaj Pulsar NS160 Competitors

Honda CB Hornet 160R: The Honda CB Hornet 160R is safer bet for newer riders who just want a sporty ride without compromising on safety and fuel efficiency. However, the Hornet lacks the sportiness of the NS 160, while still being more expensive.

Must Read Questions & Answers Before Buying Pulsar NS160

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.

    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.
