BS6 Bajaj Pulsar NS160 will get mechanical updates in the effect of gas injector and the engine produces extra energy than on the BSIV mannequin
Bajaj Auto has offered the BSVI compliant model of the Pulsar NS160 finally in the home market and it has been priced at Rs. 1.03 lakh (ex-showroom). The NS160 is the smaller sibling of the NS200 naked streetfighter and it has viewed a ticket of good over Rs. 10,000 ensuing from the BSVI updates fervent. Despite the hike in ticket, Bajaj didn’t encompass any broad cosmetic adjustments.
The 2020 Bajaj Pulsar NS160 derives energy from the up to this level 160.3 cc single-cylinder oil-cooled DTS-i twin-spark engine, which is good sufficient to generate a maximum energy output of 17.2 PS at 9,000 rpm and 14.6 Nm of height torque delivered at 7,250 rpm. The powertrain is connected to a six-high-tail transmission good as earlier than.
The previously carburetted engine is now gas injected to present 1.7 PS extra energy at 8,500 rpm while the peak torque stays the identical and is decrease down the rev differ at 6,500 rpm. The inclusion of gas injection know-how could perhaps perhaps enable better throttle response and improved gas effectivity but we will reserve the judgement except we procure to lag the bike.
The NS160 basically opponents the TVS Apache RTR 160 4V that won BSVI compliance unhurried closing year itself and it is spherical Rs. 4,000 less costly when in contrast to the Bajaj mannequin. Diversified opponents encompass Suzuki Gixxer 155, Yamaha FZ-S and Honda CB Hornet 160R. It remains to be supplied in Fossil Grey, Wild Red and Saffire Blue coloration schemes and stays unaltered visually.
The Pulsar NS160 takes styling inspiration from the NS200 but most interesting an eagle-eyed viewer could perhaps perhaps quandary the distinction between them. It boasts several parts including a semi-digital instrument cluster and clip-on handlebars for sporty driving traits along with shaded alloy wheels, split rear grab rail, split seat setup, halogen headlamp and so forth.
The Bajaj Pulsar NS200 remains to be suspended on telescopic front forks and Nitrox monoshock suspension at the rear while the braking responsibilities are dealt with by 300 mm front disc and 230 rear disc assisted by a single-channel ABS map.
