Without much fanfare Bajaj has introduced its newest Pulsar NS160 in India priced at Rs.82,400. The news has been published by Autocar India after they spoke to various dealers across the country.
Bajaj is yet to confirm the launch of the NS160. Design wise, the NS160 is very much like the NS200, with its aggressive street-fighter looks. In fact, much of the bodywork is carried over, which includes the headlight, the instrument cluster, fuel tank, split seats, tail section and tail light.
Dimensionally, it’s nearly the same as the NS200 and even has an identical 1,363mm wheelbase. But with a kerb weight of just 142kg, it is about 10kg lighter than the 200. The engine is an all-new 160.3 cc oil-cooled unit. In the international markets, the motor is tuned for 15.2 bhp and 14.6 Nm of peak torque, paired to a 5-speed gearbox.
