Bajaj Pulsar N160 Overview
Bajaj Pulsar N160 sports the same design as seen in the N250.
Built on the “Sculptural Purity” principle, it gets a metalized dual-tone color. It is an interplay of premium shades.
Interestingly, it gets a darker shade in the front and lighter towards the rear. This helps emphasize the contours of the beast.
The front section comes with a Bi-Functional Projector LED headlamp with Twin-LED DRLs. Moreover, it gets standard halogen indicators instead of LED ones.
However, other elements remain unchanged.
It still comes with a single-piece handlebar, muscular fuel tank, and the iconic Pulsar emblem.
Furthermore, it comes with a Split-Seat Setup with Stylish Grab Rail. However, the dual-barrel exhaust has been replaced by a belly-pan exhaust.
Other than that, it still comes with the new Infinity Analog-Digital Meter and Twin LED Taillamp.
Compared to other 160cc rivals, the Pulsar N160 boasts a more premium and hefty finish.
Additionally, Bajaj Pulsar N160 comes in four different colors: Black, Red, Blue, and Gray.
Bajaj Pulsar N160 is powered by a 164.82cc, Single-Cylinder, 4-stroke, Oil-cooled, SOHC FI engine. It can generate a max power of 16PS at 8750rpm and a max torque of 14.65Nm at 6750rpm.
Moreover, it is mated to a 5-speed gearbox with a 14-liter fuel tank capacity.
As expected, the new engine is BS6-compliant right off the bat.
It should be noted that this is not the same engine as seen in the Pulsar NS160. Instead, Bajaj Auto has developed it from the ground up taking heavy reference from its N250 engine.
The suspension duties are handled by a Telescopic Fork at the front and Mono-Shock at the rear.
Bajaj Pulsar N160 has 165mm ground clearance. And, the wheelbase sits at 1358mm.
Moreover, it gets a lighter kerb weight of 154kg. Interestingly enough, the tyres sizes are the same as the N250.

Bajaj Pulsar N160 Price in Nepal and Availability
It is still too early to talk about its pricing. Nevertheless, the Bajaj Pulsar N160 price in Nepal can be anywhere from Rs. 4 Lakhs to Rs. 5 Lakhs.
Since the Govt of Nepal has increased tax on 250cc machines, the N250 will be priced above Rs. 6 Lakhs.
Taking that into consideration, the N160 will cost below that.
