The sub-200cc Pulsar N160 from Bajaj Auto has been launched in the Indian market along with other motorcycles in the bikemaker's lineup that are now OBD2 and E20 fuel compliant. The all-new, OBD-2 compliant version of the Bajaj Pulsar N160, which has a sticker price of approximately Rs 1.30 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi), has also begun to arrive at the dealerships. The updates to the 2023 Bajaj Pulsar may appear minor, but they help the bike meet new emission standards while also preparing the engine for future blended fuels. Three colour choices are available for the new Bajaj Pulsar N160: Brooklyn Black, Racing Red, and Caribbean Blue. Furthermore, only the Brooklyn Black colorway is available in the dual-channel ABS version. To know more, let's now have a detailed look at the newly updated 2023 Bajaj Pulsar N160.
2023 Bajaj Pulsar N160: The New Updates
The only thing different about the 2023 model is that it now has hardware that is OBD2-compliant. The onboard diagnostic system monitors emissions in real-time and alerts the driver via dashboard indicators if there is any problem. The motorcycle also works with E20 fuel, which is a mixture of 20 per cent ethanol and petrol. Meanwhile, the 164.82cc, single-cylinder, air/oil-cooled engine is still listed under mechanical specifications. This motor, which is mated to a five-speed gearbox, produces a maximum power output of 15.68bhp at 8,750rpm and a peak torque of 14.65Nm at 6,750rpm.
2023 Bajaj Pulsar N160: Hardware Components
The single-channel ABS version's hardware components include a 230mm rear rotor, a 280mm single front disc, and 31mm telescopic front forks. On the other hand, the 300mm front disc brake and relatively larger 37mm forks benefit the dual-channel ABS. The weights of the single-channel ABS and dual-channel ABS versions are 152 kilograms and 154 kilograms, respectively.
2023 Bajaj Pulsar N160: Styling Details and Colour Options
The Bajaj Pulsar N160 maintains its original styling, including a single-pod projector-style headlight with twin DRLs, a body-coloured headlamp cowl, a colour-coordinated front fender, an engine cowl, and split-style seats. It is also OBD2-compliant. The motorcycle also gets a compact exhaust canister and 17-inch alloy wheels, and the bolted fuel tank shrouds give it a more muscular appearance. Brooklyn Black, Racing Red, and Caribbean Blue are the three colours that are offered with the bike.
2023 Bajaj Pulsar N160: Features
The feature list is also unaltered. With twin LED DRLs, a bidirectional LED projector-style headlight, an LED taillight, bulb-style indicators, a USB charger, and a semi-digital instrument cluster with a distance-to-empty metre, the 2023 model retains these features. Notably, the motorcycle is available from the company in both single-channel and dual-channel ABS configurations. The only colour option for the dual-channel ABS model is Brooklyn Black. Depending on the model chosen, the hardware varies.
