Sarang Kanade, President – Motorcycles, Bajaj Auto, said: “Twenty years ago, Pulsar pioneered the sport motorcycle revolution in India. The Pulsar 250, the largest Pulsar ever launched on the new platform in October 2021, has received tremendous reception from customers, enthusiasts and experts. We are excited to extend the new platform to the 160cc segment. The new Pulsar N160 offers an exciting proposition designed to deliver the perfect street driving experience.”
The big change on the new Bajaj Pulsar N160, of course, is the smaller displacement engine. The bike draws its power from the 164.82cc single-cylinder air-cooled engine that develops 15.7hp at 8,750rpm and 14.65Nm of peak torque at 6,750rpm. That’s 1 hp less than the Pulsar NS160, a model it’s likely to replace. Suspension duties are handled by telescopic forks up front and a monoshock at the rear, while the Pulsar N160 has disc brakes at either end while rolling on 17-inch alloy wheels and uses the same 100/80 front and 130/70 rear section. tire sizes. The bike comes with a semi-digital instrument console similar to the N250 as well as USB connectivity.
The new Bajaj Pulsar N160 gets a 14 liter fuel tank, while the curb weight is said to be 154 kg. Bajaj offers the Pulsar N160 in three colors – Racing Red, Techno gray and Caribbean Blue – on the single-channel ABS version. The dual-channel ABS version is only available with the Brooklyn Black paint scheme. The model arrives in a competitive space that already has great offerings like the TVS Apache RTR 160 4V, the Hero Xtreme 160R as well as the Suzuki Gixxer.
