Chennai, July 2022: Bajaj Auto, the world’s most valuable two-wheeler and three-wheeler company, has launched the all-new Pulsar N160 in Chennai. It is the latest addition to the Pulsar range, India’s most popular sports motorcycle. The Pulsar N160 is built on the new Pulsar platform that has witnessed an unprecedented response ever since its introduction with the launch of the Pulsar 250 in October last year. Equipped with segment-first Dual-Channel ABS, the Pulsar N160 is set to become a benchmark for performance and control in the entry sports motorcycle segment.


Product Philosophy


The new Pulsar N160 has been conceptualised to deliver power, precision, and control like never seen before in the segment. This differentiation philosophy allows the Pulsar N160 to easily straddle the asks of today’s young rider who seeks a motorcycle of sporty character that is also rideable in everyday street conditions.




The design language boasts of dynamic and energetic character lines, tighter proportions, and modern aerodynamism. The muscular tank is contrasted with a sleek, stylish waist section that extends to a contoured step seat, making for an eye-catching profile. It is equipped with a sportier underbelly exhaust that growls at higher RPMs.




The Pulsar N160 is powered by a 165cc BS6 engine, which gives superior power and immediate throttle response. It delivers 16 PS of power and 14.65 Nm of torque with 85% of peak torque available throughout the rev band for an unmatched pick-up and the signature Pulsar rush. The Pulsar N160 provides the best-in-class tractive effort and enables better passing acceleration in every gear.




The new Pulsar N160 is built on a tubular frame chassis that offers high torsional stiffness for superior handling. Further, the bike is equipped with a new precision-crafted underbelly exhaust system positioned close to its centre of gravity for improved balance. This, along with the mono-shock rear suspension, LED projector headlamps and 300 mm front disc brake and 230 mm rear disc brake make for a perfect street riding experience.




The segment-first Dual Channel ABS in the new Pulsar N160 inspires increased riding confidence by restricting wheel lockups during both front and rear braking. The stronger grip provided by wider cross-section tyres (Front 100/80-17, Rear 130/70-17) in the Pulsar N160 adds to the riding control of the motorcycle.






Pulsar N160 Dual Channel ABS is available in Brooklyn Black Colour at an attractive price of ₹ 1,27,981 (ex-showroom Tamil Nadu).


Sarang Kanade, President - Motorcycles, Bajaj Auto, said, “The Pulsar is known for pioneering India’s sports-motorcycling revolution, and we are happy about extending this to the 160cc segment. Chennai is one of our prime markets in India for the Pulsar, and we are excited about bringing the new Pulsar N160 to the city. We are hopeful that bikers will experience the perfect street riding experience with this all-new model, which is designed to deliver exactly that.”
