Major Sales Drivers for Bajaj Auto

With a net profit of Rs 5,628 crore, Bajaj Auto recently reported its FY23 results, marking the company's best-ever financial performance. In India, the market share of Bajaj is still dominated by the Pulsar brand, which is followed by the Platina, the CT, the Chetak Electric, the Avenger, and the Dominar. There are 11 motorcycles with the Pulsar brand currently available for purchase.

2023 Bajaj Pulsar N160 Launched in India

Bajaj Auto's sub-200cc Pulsar N160 has been launched in the Indian market, along with other motorcycles in the company's lineup that are now OBD2 and E20 fuel compliant. The all-new Bajaj Pulsar N160, with a starting price of Rs 1.30 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi), has also begun to arrive at dealerships. The 2023 Bajaj Pulsar's updates may appear minor, but they help the bike meet new emission standards while also preparing the engine for future blended fuels. The new Bajaj Pulsar N160 is available in three colours: Brooklyn Black, Racing Red, and Caribbean Blue. Furthermore, the dual-channel ABS version is only available in the Brooklyn Black colourway. 

The bike's onboard diagnostic system continuously monitors emissions and alerts the driver via dashboard indicators if there is a problem. The motorcycle also runs on E20 fuel, which is a 20% ethanol/petrol mixture. Meanwhile, the 164.82cc air/oil-cooled single-cylinder engine is still listed under mechanical specifications. This motor produces a maximum power output of 15.68bhp at 8,750rpm and a peak torque of 14.65Nm at 6,750rpm when coupled to a five-speed gearbox.

The hardware components of the single-channel ABS version include a 230mm rear rotor, a 280mm single front disc, and 31mm telescopic front forks. The dual-channel ABS, on the other hand, benefits from the 300mm front disc brake and the relatively larger 37mm forks. The original styling of the Bajaj Pulsar N160 is retained, 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. The motorcycle also features a compact exhaust canister and 17-inch alloy wheels, as well as bolted fuel tank shrouds that give it a more muscular appearance. The feature set is also unchanged. The 2023 model retains the LED taillight, bulb-style indicators, a USB charger, and a semi-digital instrument cluster with a distance-to-empty meter.
