2024 Bajaj Pulsar N160 Debuts at Rs 1.39 Lakh with USD Forks and More

The 2024 Bajaj Pulsar N160 is now updated with features that are poised to enhance its appeal in the competitive Indian motorcycle market. The introduction of USD forks, new graphics, and LED turn signals marks a significant upgrade from its previous iteration. These enhancements aim to offer improved handling and a fresher look, aligning with Bajaj's commitment to delivering value to its customers.

Key Updates and Features

  • USD Forks: Unlike the grey-shaded USD forks on the Pulsar NS160 and NS200, the N160 features them in a light golden color, which contrasts sharply with the bike's all-black theme. This upgrade not only boosts the aesthetic appeal but also promises enhanced performance in terms of acceleration and maneuverability on curves.
  • Styling Enhancements: The Pulsar N160 sports updated graphics on the fuel tank with new ‘N160’ lettering incorporating a chequered flag pattern, emphasizing the bike’s racing spirit. It retains its dual-tone decals, adding continuity to its design evolution.
  • LED Turn Signals: Replacing the previous halogen units, the new LED turn signals improve visibility, which is crucial for safer night-time riding.

Performance and Specifications

  • Engine: The heart of the Pulsar N160 remains the 164.82 cc, single-cylinder, oil-cooled engine that produces 16 PS of power and 14.65 Nm of torque, coupled with a 5-speed constant mesh gearbox.
  • Braking and Suspension: Equipped with dual-channel ABS, the bike has a 300 mm front disc and a 230 mm rear disc. It continues to feature a nitrox monoshock suspension at the rear, ensuring a smooth ride.
  • Instrumentation and Connectivity: Earlier updates in February introduced a fully digital instrument console with Bluetooth connectivity through the Bajaj Ride Connect app. Although it lacks turn-by-turn navigation, it offers useful features like call and SMS alerts, signal status, and phone battery level indicator. A USB charging port adds convenience for riders.
