How Different is The Pulsar NS160 from The New Pulsar N160?

Bajaj has launched the all-new Pulsar N160, the first motorcycle in the segment that offers a dual-channel ABS. While you might be wondering if it is just the N250 with the N16 motor, the reality is far away from that. We have a list of all the differences between the two160cc Pulsar here.

We need to begin with the aesthetics of both of the bikes. Well, the design brief for both bikes seems pretty straightforward: keep them aesthetically in line with the bigger siblings. The Pulsar N160 closely resembles the Pulsar N250, while the Pulsar NS160 carries the design of the Pulsar NS200. 

Thus the N160 gets a bi-functional LED projector headlamp with the LED DRLs, and the NS160 gets a traditional halogen bulb headlamp. 


The Pulsar N160 is powered by a new oil-cooled, two-valve single-cylinder 164.82cc engine that produces 16PS and 14.65Nm, while the NS160 draws 17.2PS and 14.6Nm from a 1603cc oil-cooled, four-valve, and single-cylinder engine. Although, the way these two engines make their power is quite different. The Pulsar N160 is a torque motor that is versatile enough to be ridden on the daily commutes and a bit of spirited riding. The NS160 has a peaky motor, making all of its performance in the rev range. 


The NS160 is built on the same chassis as the 250cc Pulsars. Hence, it features the same frame, a monoshock and a 37mm telescopic fork. The single-channel ABS variant gets a slimmer 31mm fork. In this comparison, the NS160 gets a perimeter frame on which a telescopic fork and the monoshock are pinned.  

The braking department is where you will notice the main difference, as the N160 gets a segment-first dual-channel ABS option, whereas the NS160 is the only available with the single-channel ABS. 

Both bikes ride on 17-inch wheels; moreover, the N160 gets a chunkier 100 section tyre at the front and a 130 section tyre at the back, compared to the 90/120 section front and back tyres, correspondingly on the NC160.
