Bajaj Pulsar NS160 BS6 Launched, Priced Above Rs 1 Lakh Now

The 160cc motorcycle gets a more powerful, fuel-injected motor

  • The NS160 BS6 costs Rs 9,203 more than its BS4 predecessor.
  • Its updated fuel-injected motor makes 1.7PS more power.
  • The new motorcycle's weight and wheelbase have increased.

The Bajaj Pulsar NS160 BS6 has been launched at Rs 1,03,398 (ex-showroom, Delhi). It now commands a Rs 9,203 premium over its BS4 predecessor. The significant price hike comes courtesy of a new fuel-injection system. Other than that, the Pulsar NS160 BS6 remains virtually unchanged.

The addition of fuel-injection not only helps the NS160 clear BS6 emission norms but also make more power. The BS6-compliant 160.3cc air- and oil-cooled motor now delivers 17.2PS at 9,000rpm and 14.6Nm at 7250rpm. Power is up by 1.7PS. Peak torque remains the same but comes at a higher rpm. For reference, the BS4 Pulsar NS160 made 15.5PS at 8500rpm and 14.6Nm at 6500rpm. The Pulsar NS160 BS6 continues to use a 5-speed gearbox.

Bajaj Pulsar 180F BS6 Launched. Slightly Torquier Than Before

Bajaj has left the Pulsar NS160 BS6 cosmetically untouched. It comes in the same 3 two-tone paint schemes: Fossil Grey, Wild Red and Saffire Blue. It continues to use the same halogen headlamp, LED tail lamp, LED turn indicators and semi-digital instrument console.

Two-Wheelers That Were Discontinued Post BS6 Deadline

Mechanically, the Pulsar NS160 BS6 remains unchanged as well. It continues to use a perimeter frame and suspension consisting of telescopic forks and gas-charged monoshock. Braking hardware includes a 260mm front disc and a 230mm rear disc with single-channel ABS. Dimensionally, the Pulsar NS160 BS6 remains the same except for the 1372mm wheelbase that has increased by 2mm and 151kg kerb weight which is up by 3kg.

Apart from the Pulsar NS160, Bajaj has launched the Dominar 400 BS6 and Pulsar RS200 BS6 today. After the launch of the Pulsar NS200, the entire Pulsar range will become BS6-compliant.
