Bajaj Pulsar N160 launched in India, with nearly identical design and equipment as Pulsar N250, but smaller engine

Bajaj Auto has finally launched the new Pulsar N160 in India. It’s essentially the next-generation NS160, based on the well-received N250 naked streetfighter. The design of the Bajaj Pulsar N160 has many similarities with the N250 in terms of design.

It features an LED projector headlight flanked by eyebrow-like LED daytime running lights and the digital instrument cluster is also reminiscent of the N250, with a short windshield in front of it. The fuel tank extensions look sharp, while the tank itself looks quite muscular in true Pulsar fashion.

Other design details on the Bajaj Pulsar N160 include dual vertical LED taillights, Y-shaped alloy wheels and split grab bars, similar to the N250. Unlike the quarter-litre streetfighter, however, the 160cc model gets a lower-belly exhaust, which gives the bike a tighter look.

The new Bajaj Pulsar N160 is powered by an all-new 164.8cc, oil-cooled, single-cylinder engine. This engine produces 16 hp and 14.65 Nm of peak power and torque respectively, and is mated to a 5-speed manual transmission. In comparison, the Pulsar NS160 gets 17.2 hp and 14.6 Nm from its 160.3 cc engine.

The Pulsar N160 is built on the same tubular chassis as the N250. Two variants are offered: standard (one-channel ABS) and two-channel ABS. The former gets a pair of 31mm forks, while the latter gets 37mm forks instead. The front brake also comes in different sizes on both variants – 300mm on the single-channel ABS version and 280mm on the dual-channel ABS version.

The rear suspension is handled by a Nitrox monoshock and the rear brake is a 230mm disc on both variants. The bike will have 17-inch wheels at both ends, with a 100/80 tire at the front and a 130/70 tire at the rear.

Bajaj Pulsar N160 costs Rs. 1.23 lakh for the single channel ABS variant and Rs. 1.28 lakh for the dual-channel ABS variant. We will be riding the bike very soon, so keep an eye on our review!
