Bajaj Pulsar N160 launched in India

Bajaj has launched the new Pulsar N160 in India. The new bike is based on the company’s Pulsar 250 platform and it gets a similar design as its older sibling–the N250. The bike is offered with single and dual-channel ABS, at a starting price of INR 1.23 lakh.

Design and features 

The new N160 gets an identical semi-faired body as its N250 sibling’s. For lighting, the bike comes with a bi-functional LED projector headlamp with LED DRLs and an LED tail lamp with glitter pattern. The variant with the single-channel ABS comes in three colour options: Racing Red, Caribbean Blue, and Techno Grey, while the dual-channel ABS variant is offered in Brooklyn Black only.

The bike comes equipped with a semi-digital console that displays a gear indicator, clock, fuel economy, and range indicator. Furthermore, the bike comes with  USB connectivity and a mobile charger. 

Engine and specifications

Powering the bike is a 164.82 cc DTS-i engine that generates a power of 15.7 hp at 8750 rpm and a torque of 14.65 Nm at 6750 rpm. The engine is mated to a five-speed constant mesh gearbox.

The bike comes with a bigger fuel tank capacity (14-litres) than its NS160 sibling, but the seat height and ground clearance are lower than in the older model.

The bike gets dual disc brakes with single or dual channel ABS, depending on the variant. Moreover, its suspension duties are handled by a telescopic fork at the front and a monoshock nitrox at the rear.
