Bajaj Pulsar N160 New Variant Launched, Pulsar 125, 150 and 220F Also Get Upgrades

Bajaj has upgraded the Pulsar N160 with a new variant. This adds a list of features to the already powerful and feature-rich bike. The features focus mainly on increasing precision and giving the rider more control. The price of the Pulsar N160 variant has been set to INR 1,39,693 (ex-showroom). Along with this, Bajaj has also added some new features to the Pulsar 125, 150, and 220F. 

Bajaj Pulsar N160 Variant Upgrades

There are three significant upgrades in the Pulsar N160 Variant: Upside-down forks at the front, Bluetooth and ABS ride modes. 

While the rest of the variants of the N160 make use of telescopic forks, the new variant has been fitted with USD forks, which will help it handle better and make it more stable. 

The new variant's digital instrument panel will use Bluetooth connectivity, which will help it perform turn-by-turn navigation and offer other connected features. 

The ABS ride modes help the rider adjust the ABS according to the road surface. It has three modes: road, Rain, and Off-road. As the name suggests, Road mode is for standard rides in the city or on highways. The rain mode helps out in low-traction wet conditions by offering stable braking. The off-road mode is for adventures in mud, sand, or rocky terrain. It gives more control and improves handling.

Bajaj Pulsar N160 Powertrain

The N160's engine remains unchanged from the standard variant. It is a 164.82cc oil-cooled petrol guzzler that can produce 15.68 bhp and 14.65 Nm torque. It is mated to a five-speed manual gearbox.

Bajaj has added features like a Blutooth-enabled console, USB charger and updated graphics to the carbon fibre single and split seat versions of the Pulsar 125. The Pulsar 125 carbon fibre single seat is priced at Rs 92,883. 

The Pulsar 150 now gets a similar variant. Pulsar 150 Single Disc gets a price tag of 1,13,696.
