First Impression Review

Pulsar NS 160 is the latest iteration of the Pulsar series to launch in India. Last year, Bajaj launched this model in some of their international markets such as Turkey, Nepal and Indonesia. The NS160 was launched in July 2017 in India. With this launch, Bajaj has silently replaced the much popular Pulsar 150 from the official line up. The new Pulsar NS 160 shares almost 90% of parts from the elder sibling NS 200.

Like the RS 200 and NS 200, this one too is constructed on perimeter frame chassis. This lightweight frame has improved the dynamics of the Bajaj bikes from the past days. They are agile and quicker with confident cornering capabilities.
It gets Nitrox filled Monoshock suspension at the rear and telescopic suspension with anti-friction bush at the front. The braking department consists of hydraulic disc brake with 240 mm disc at the front and conventional drum brake at the rear.

The Conclusion
The new Bajaj Pulsar 160 NS competes with Honda CB Hornet 160R, Suzuki Gixxer and Yamaha FZ series. The 160 segment become super interested with the launch of all new Pulsar. We are yet to test ride this vehicle and therefore we are not sure about its capabilities. Altogether, it is an interesting addition from the Pune-based two-wheeler maker.
