Just in: New Pulsar N160 Launched at 1.23 Lac; Gets Segment-First DUAL ABS

Pulsar N160 price is the same as Pulsar NS160 but there is a higher dual-channel ABS variant as well. It comes with many new updates and is based on the Pulsar 250 platform…

Okay, that was quicker than we had thought! Bajaj has officially announced the launch of a new Pulsar in the line-up – the Pulsar N160. This has put to rest the question – what will be the displacement of the next Pulsar that will be launched on the new-generation Pulsar platform. As is obvious, the N160 is built on the same platform of the biggest-ever Pulsar 250 that was introduced earlier in October 2021.

In all likelihood, the N160 will replace the Pulsar NS160 and gets fair bit of updates as well. The 164.82 cc motor is a freshly made 2 valve unit (against NS160s’s 4 valve motor) that is oil cooled and produces 16 PS of power at 8750 rpm and 14.65 Nm of max torque at 6750 rpm. This is paired with a 5-speed gearbox.

As was the case with the 250s, Bajaj informs that the focus is on tractability and instant response with the N160 as well. As much as 85 percent of peak torque is available throughout the rev range.

In terms of features, the N160 is equipped with an option of dual-channel ABS system that makes it the only motorcycle in the segment to get this tech. All others are offered with a single-channel unit. The same styling and design of the N250 has percolated to the N160 which means it comes with wolf-like LED DRLs and an LED projector headlamp, along with the infinity display – so you get a tachometer needle, gear position indicator, distance to empty read-out, etc.
