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.

As for its availability, Bajaj Pulsar N160 will launch after F250 and N250 launch in Nepal.

We might see it in the Nepali market in a year or so.

Nevertheless, Bajaj Nepal can surprise us by showcasing it at the NADA Auto Show 2022. However, the chances are pretty slim.

In any case, Bajaj Pulsar NS160 will rival Yamaha MT15, Suzuki Gixxer 155, and Hero Xtreme 160R.
