Bajaj Auto has launched its latest Pulsar model in India in the form of the N160. It costs Rs 1.22,854 for the ABS single channel model and Rs 1.27.853 (both ex showroom Delhi) for the ABS two channel version. Here’s what it has to offer for the above price.
In terms of design, the new Bajaj Pulsar N160 resembles the Pulsar N250. It gets the same MT-15-esque fascia that houses the LED projector unit, flanked by eyebrow-like LED DRLs. The side and rear profile also resemble its 250cc sibling.
The Pulsar N160 is powered by a 164.82cc oil-cooled single-cylinder engine mated to a 5-speed gearbox. The engine develops 15.7 hp and 14.65 Nm. That is 1 horsepower less than the Pulsar NS160. In terms of functionality, the new Pulsar will have a part analog and part digital console.
The suspension is done by conventional telescopic forks and monoshocks. As for the braking hardware, the Pulsar N160 gets a single disc front and rear with dual-channel ABS and single-channel ABS (two variants). It rides on 17-inch alloy wheels.
Bajaj offers the N160 single-channel ABS model in three colors – Racing Red, Techno gray and Caribbean Blue – while the two-channel ABS is only offered in Brooklyn Black livery.
In the 160cc segment, the TVS Apache RTR 160 4V has already set a benchmark, given the package it offers. That said, the Bajaj Pulsar N160 also has other foes like the Hero Xtreme 160R and the Suzuki Gixxer in its segment.
