Bajaj Pulsar 160NS Overview
The upcoming Pulsar 160NS Bajaj is a younger sibling of the Pulsar 200NS. The 160NS is based on the 200NS, looking pretty much similar. There has been some toning done, like a smaller disc and smaller tyres, as compared to the 200NS. The rivals of this bike are Honda CB Hornet 160R, Yamaha FZ version 2 and Suzuki Gixxer. The rivals, on the other hand, get a bigger tyre and an option for a rear disc, which the Pulsar misses out on. The Pulsar is the smallest bike offered by Bajaj to have oil cooling, which the rivals miss out on.
Bajaj Pulsar 160NS Engine & Transmission
The 160NS get an updated version of the AS150’s 149cc engine, which is now a 160.3cc single-cylinder engine, which generates maximum power of 15.5PS @ 8500rpm and maximum torque of 14.6Nm @ 6500rpm. The engine is mated to a 5-speed gearbox. The 142kg kerb weight makes the 160NS heavier than the competition, but the torque produced gives the Pulsar an upper hand.
Bajaj Pulsar 160NS Mileage
The mileage on this bike is expected to be around 45-55kmpl holding a fuel tank capacity of 12L. The bike comes with basic features, like an attractive instrument cluster, a nicely-mounted gear shift indicator and big pillion foot pegs, and what now comes as standard is the always-on headlamp for safety reasons. The Bajaj Pulsar 160NS colours include White, Red and Blue as base shades with a Grey highlight on tanks and rear panel. All this is available at a price tag of around Rs. 89,000 (On-Road Price, New Delhi).
Bajaj Pulsar 160NS Performance and Handling
The bike comes with a front 240mm disc and rear 130mm drum brake that is without ABS. ABS is only available for the Turkish market. The suspension, on the other hand, is borrowed from the 200NS. The front tyre measures 80/100-17 while the rear uses 110/80-17 for excellent on-road grip.
