How Bajaj Pulsar N160 E20 looks BS7?
Well, Pulsar N160 is exactly the same as the N250 with minor changes. and at one sight it’s hard to difficult identify both bikes whether it’s N160 or N250. But I will show you some little details about the bike which will help you to know this bike more. Read More
From the front, there is no change in the design. you will get the same LED projector light that consists of both high and low beams. whereas the LED positioning light is also the same with no difference, moving on to the front fender is also the same double-layer type.
Besides this, to mount the Licence plate bajaj has provided some space above the headlight and the front fairing is not available in this bike so you cannot save yourself from a large wind blast during a highway ride.
Now here comes the change in the N160 you will get halogen-equipped clear lens turn indicators whereas, in the Pulsar N250, you will get LED turn indicators. and side view mirrors are bolted on the handlebar because you don’t have a large fairing.
Talking about the side profile of the bike it’s pretty much the same as the N250 except for one thing that is exhaust. yes in the 160 you will get an underbelly exhaust whereas with the N250 you will get a short side exhaust pipe.
And personally speaking, I don’t like the underbelly exhaust design bike those bikes look incomplete to me. but you may like that kind of design it’s the personal choice of everyone.
Talking about seats and fuel tanks they are exactly identical to the N250. besides this, you will get a tyre hugger at the rear wheel to say your bike from dirt and a mud flap is also provided below the monoshocker to save the shocker from mud.
I love the design of the wheels and if you buy a dual-channel ABS model you will get black colour wheels with racing stripes over them and if you buy single-channel ABS then you will get silver colour Alloy with racing decals.
Apart from that, the engine cowl is also provided with N160 and this engine cowl is made up of fibre plastic, not metal so it’s just a design element and it’s not going to say your bike from underbelly damage.
On the left side of the bike, Bajaj has added a saree guard which is well designed and not looks awkward and upfront for rider protection a two-piece leg guard has provided that not only saves your legs but also prevents engine damage.
and last, the chain remains exposed in the N160 model means no full chain cover is provided so you have to get your chain sprocket cleaned often. I think I have explained almost everything and the rest of the things you can see in the images we have provided.
Talking about the rear view N160 is identical to the N250. but you will see only one change here the Halogrn equipped indicators and the rest of the things like the Licence plate holder, dual strips type LED taillight and grab handles all are the same.
Another change here is the handlebar in the Pulsar F250 you get a clip-on handlebar but with the naked Pulsar N250/160 you will get a bar-type handle that is slightly bent toward the rider and gives good control over the bike.
One thing, I like about the new pulsar is that the company is offering an illuminated switch gear cluster that makes it easy to operate at the night during rides. and a new rider doesn’t need to find them blindly.
The left side cluster consists of four switches which are the Passing/High & low beam/ Turn indicator and the horn switch.
Similarly, on the right side switch gear cluster you will get three switches which are the Engine kill switch/the headlight on/off and the self-start switch.
The speedometer is also identical to the N250 with no change.
Bajaj Pulsar N160 Colors
What colour options do we get with the “Dual-Channel” ABS N160?
You will get two colours option with the Dual Channels ABS N160 model that is Brooklyn Black and Caribbean blue and the engine/Alloy wheels also come painted in black colours with this model.
What colour options do we get with the “Single-Channel” ABS N160?
With single-channel ABS we have the freedom to choose from three exciting colours with new graphics these colours are Caribbean blue, Racing Red & Techno Grey. with these colours, you will get bronze colour engine side covers and silver colour alloy wheels that look sporty yet premium. I personally love these colours, especially Racing Red.
How Bajaj Pulsar N160 Engine performs?
first, let’s see the key specs of the N160 pulsar engine. this engine is 164.82 cc, single cylinder 4 stroke, SOHC, 2 valves, Oil cooled, Fuel injected engine. that develops 16PS of power and 14.65 Nm of torque. Read More
This engine is coupled with a 5-speed constant mesh gearbox that delivers power smoothly to the rear wheel via chain and sprocket arrangement. and to shift gear you have a toe shifter.
When you ride this bike it feels smoother and when you twist the throttle it pulls effortlessly which is sufficient to put a smile on your face. and as this bike is 160cc it has a nice Initial, mid and top-end power range.
and you can cruise effortlessly above 80 kmph all day and the engine will not show you any sign of loss of power. and one more thing if you want to ride this bike on long routes you can ride it it’s absolutely fantastic.
Talking about the suspension system the Pulsar N160 dual ABS comes with 37 mm telescopic suspension and single-channel ABS comes with thin 31 mm telescopic forks. Besides this, at the rear, you will get Monoshocker and this suspension system absorbs bumps efficiently and keeps you in comfort even on broken roads.
Talking about brakes you will get front and rear disc brakes with ABS and these brake callipers offer great bite and offer good stopping power.
Bajaj Pulsar N160 Mileage
What is the mileage of Bajaj Pulsar N160?
Here I am sharing a rider’s experience where he was riding in mixed conditions at the speed of 50-65 kmph and he got the mileage of 44.5 kmpl which is great I believe that rider can get up to 55 kmpl if rides in the economy.
In another mileage test, we have seen that rider was riding the bike in the city in medium traffic and he got a mileage of 46.8 kmpl. and his speed was below 50 kmph.
|Mixed Riding Condition||50-60 kmph||44.5kmpl.|
|City||below 50 kmph||46.8 kmpl|
Bajaj Pulsar N160 Top Speed
What is the real top speed of the Pulsar N160?
Here I want to say that these naked bikes are not designed to hit top speed but most people still think that top speed is a parameter to judge any bike’s performance. so I have seen during the test that the Pulsar N160 hits the top speed of 128 kmph and at this speed, the rev limiter restricts the acceleration of the engine.
It was not going beyond 128 kmph and proof you can see in the image. and don’t forget that its 2-valve engine this engine mainly designed for initial and mid-range performance.
|Top Speed||128 kmph.|
