Detailed Review by Maxabout Team

Introduction

Bajaj Auto is popular for its affordable yet stylish bikes, and its fanbase in India, as well as global markets, is growing with each passing day. In particular, its Pulsar series has its own craze among Indian bike lovers thanks to its sporty looks and daily commuter capabilities. Bajaj introduced the first bike from the Pulsar series in 2012, and its journey so far has remained a spectacular one.

To keep the audience intact and boost the sales volume, Bajaj is working on a batch of new Pulsar range bikes, and it has now launched the Pulsar N160 bike in the Indian market. It receives Bajaj’s new technology and design along with the new powertrain. Let’s dive in to know the specs and features in detail to help you make an opinion on the bike.

Bajaj Pulsar N160 Design & Style

The Bajaj Pulsar N160 boasts a design language identical to bigger 250cc bikes. Its aggressive and sharp design complements its naked streetfighter appearance. The maker has finished the bike in dual-tone metallic shades that are darker in the front and get lighter towards the rear profile. A muscular fuel tank with embossed Pulsar branding gives it a robust look, and the LED DRLs shape in the front and the jewel LED tail lamp to add to it. Indicators are separated from the head cowl and seem to be the warrior’s face.

Sharp lines and coloured accents all over the body are the icing on the cake. In terms of body dimensions, the N160 gets a wheelbase of 1358mm, a ground clearance of 165mm and a seat height of 795mm. The kerb weight varies depending on the variants since the dual-channel ABS model is 154 kg while the single-channel one is 152 kg.

Bajaj Pulsar N160 Colour Options

Bajaj Pulsar N160 Instrument Console

The maker has fitted the N160 with a semi-digital instrument cluster that is easily readable. It offers a decent amount of information, including a trip meter, odometer, gear indicator, clock, fuel economy, and range indicator. The only thing that could be a major drawback is the lack of Bluetooth connectivity, which has become an integral feature in modern-day bikes and even almost all scooter brands are offering this in their current models. However, the bike comes with a USB charging socket to keep your electric gadgets running.

Bajaj Pulsar N160 Engine & Gearbox

The Bajaj Pulsar N160 is powered by a 164.82cc, single-cylinder, 4-stroke, SOHC, 2-valve, oil-cooled, FI engine that generates 16 HP at 8,750 rpm and a max torque of 14.65 Nm at 6,750 rpm. This engine comes mated with a constant-mesh 5-speed gearbox. This engine is also supported by a fibre cowl for enhanced protection and the interesting thing is that the bike exhaust is positioned under the belly.

Bajaj Pulsar N160 Brakes, Suspension & Tyres

Braking duties in the Pulsar N160 are assigned to 300mm disc brakes at the front and 230mm disc brakes at the rear. However, this is for the dual-channel variant only. The single-channel ABS variant gets a 280mm front disc and a 230mm rear disc. As far as suspension is concerned, it is handled by telescopic forks at the front and mono-shock with nitrox at the rear. The bike rides on 17-inch wheels which are outfitted with 100/80 size tubeless tyre at the front and 130/70 size tubeless unit at the rear. The rear tyre is wide enough for a better grip on the road.

Bajaj Pulsar N160 Top Speed & Mileage

The Pulsar N160 offers a top speed of approximately 120 km/h. As for mileage, the bike may offer a fuel efficiency of 40-42 kmpl.

Bajaj Pulsar N160 Competitors

In the Indian two-wheeler market, the Bajaj Pulsar N160 will directly compete with the Hero Xtreme 160R, Yamaha FZ-S Fi V3, Honda XBlade, Suzuki Gixxer and the TVS Apache RTR 160 4V.

Verdict - Should You Buy Bajaj Pulsar N160 or not?

Bajaj has launched the Pulsar N160 with a powerful engine and an enticing design language. At this price point, the bike offers a good value since the dual-channel ABS in the 160cc segment bike is an impressive move. If you don’t want to spend much money, you have the option to choose the lower variant. This bike has the capability of giving its rivals the neck-to-neck competition. A commuting bike that is stylish and sporty at the same time can be a good choice.
