Pulsar NS160 Twin Disc price is higher than Pulsar 180…
Along with its older-gen Pulsars which sell much more, Bajaj has inserted its newer-gen Pulsars in the voids that were present and now it is a comprehensively large portfolio they have. It also, kind of, gives us an idea why, for the bigger 400 they created a separate brand.
Anyway, after the success of Pulsar 150 Twin Disc, Bajaj has introduced Pulsar NS160 with an additional rear disc brake. The motorcycle has already started reaching dealerships and is on sale. We spotted one at a local dealership in Bhopal.
Pulsar NS160 Twin Disc Changes
There are three changes that the new variant comes with..
- Fatter rear tyre (120/80)
- Additional rear disc (Front is a 240 mm disc and rear is a 230 mm rotor).
- Refreshed set of 5-spoke alloy wheels.
The dealership retail model (video below) was shod with new alloy wheels however the official pic (featured image) flaunts the same alloy wheels, for some reason.
Pulsar NS160 Twin Disc Price
|Pulsar NS160 front disc||Rs 83,136|
|Pulsar NS160 Twin Disc||Rs 86,138|
*price ex-showroom Bhopal
As you can see there is a premium of Rs 3000 that Bajaj is charging for the additional rear disc brake. The 160 now overshoots the Pulsar 180 (Price Rs 84, 243 ex-showroom Bhopal) by Rs 1900. Pulsar NS160 Twin Disc costs Rs 84,691 ex showroom in Delhi.
Here is how it stacks up against its competition…
- Gixxer rear disc – Rs 82,479
- Hornet 160R CBS rear disc – Rs 90,308
*prices ex-showroom Bhopal
So, the new Pulsar variant sits up right in the middle but Hornet comes with additional CBS (Combined Braking System). Gixxer is very well priced for what it offers.
Here is a quick video of Pulsar NS160 twin disc variant by our reader Shivansh Batham.
The Pulsar NS160 twin disc continues to be powered by the same 15.5 PS (at 8500 rpm) and 14.6 Nm (at 6500 rpm) 160.3cc 4-valve engine. There may be a minor weight increment due to the additional disc brake set-up.
