Bajaj has launched the all-new Pulsar N160 in India. It is the latest addition to the Pulsar range, India’s most popular sports motorcycle. Equipped with segment-first dual-channel ABS, the Pulsar N160 it sure has spiked our interest. Available at a price of INR 1,25,824 ex-showroom (Kolkata) & INR 1,27,853 ex-showroom (Delhi). The Pulsar N160 Dual Channel ABS is available as of now only in Brooklyn Black colour while the Single Channel variant has 3 colour options – Caribbean Blue, Racing Red and Techno Grey.
The Pulsar N160 is powered by a 165cc BS6 engine, which gives superior power and immediate throttle response. It delivers 16 PS of power and 14.65 Nm of torque with 85% of peak torque available throughout the rev band for an unmatched pick-up and the signature Pulsar rush.
The new Pulsar N160 is built on a tubular frame chassis that offers high torsional stiffness for superior handling. Further, the bike is equipped with a new precision-crafted underbelly exhaust system positioned close to its centre of gravity for improved balance. This, along with the mono-shock rear suspension, LED projector headlamps and 300 mm front disc brake and 230 mm rear disc brake make for a perfect street riding experience.
The segment-first Dual Channel ABS in the new Pulsar N160 inspires increased riding confidence by restricting wheel lockups during both front and rear braking. The stronger grip provided by wider cross-section tyres (Front 100/80-17, Rear 130/70-17) in the Pulsar N160 adds to the riding control of the motorcycle.
Sarang Kanade, President – Motorcycles, Bajaj Auto, said, “Twenty years ago, Pulsar pioneered the sports-motorcycling revolution in India. The Pulsar 250, the biggest ever Pulsar, launched on the new platform in October 2021, received a tremendous response from customers, enthusiasts and experts alike. We are excited to extend the new platform to the 160cc segment. The new Pulsar N160 packs an exciting proposition that is built to deliver the perfect street riding experience”.
