Among bike enthusiasts in Bangladesh, Pulsar is a legendary name synonymous with sports bikes. It changed the way people viewed sport biking and has since become a symbol of reverence. Pulsar has been the embodiment of POWER for bike enthusiasts for over two decades. Now, they have taken it to the next level, allowing riders to experience CONTROL and PRECISION like never before.
Considering safety and performance, Bajaj has unveiled the Pulsar N160, the first 160cc motorcycle in Bangladesh with a dual-channel anti-lock braking system (ABS) in Bangladesh. Bajaj launched this on January 21, 2023. Let’s see Bajaj Pulsar N160’s review, price, and specification.
Key Features of Bajaj Pulsar N160
Bajaj Auto has launched the all-new Bajaj Pulsar N160, which is set to be the entry point into the premium sports segment, yet still a top-notch commuter in the 160 cc category.
In contrast to the Pulsar NS160 that was released five years ago, the Pulsar N160 does not have anything in common with it, as it comes with a new engine, frame, gearbox, and an edgy design that it shares with the Bajaj Pulsar N250. With the Pulsar N160, Bajaj Auto is looking to challenge its rivals.
Design and Feature
The Pulsar N160 has a familiar design, almost identical to the larger Pulsar N250. Its face is composed of LED DRLs, projector headlamps, and a small quarter fairing around the fuel tank. The seat is wide, comfortable, and low enough to accommodate riders of various heights and sizes.
The speedometer console, which is both analog and digital, may appear outdated, but it still offers all the necessary read-outs, such as a gear position indicator and distance to empty. Additionally, the top of the fuel tank has a USB charging port.

The black chrome 3D Pulsar logo, with its frost effect in the LED tail light and a floating panel on the front mudguard, showcases Bajaj’s meticulous attention to detail. Topping it off, this variant is available in an exclusive colorway, making it an even more appealing option. However, the N160 comes in four color variants, only the Brooklyn black released in Bangladesh.
Engine and Performance
The new 165 cc (precisely 164.82 cc) engine produces a deep sound when it is started, and it has a single-cylinder, two-valve air, and oil-cooled design. It delivers 16 ps power output at 8,750 rpm and 14.65 Nm of peak torque at 6,500 rpm.
This engine is unrivaled in terms of smoothness in the Pulsar series. The 5-speed transmission is smooth and responsive and complements the engine’s refinement. It offers plenty of torque at low and mid-range speeds and a wide range of torque for stronger acceleration.
The Pulsar N160 boasts impressive acceleration in city speeds, easily reaching 70-75 kmph with ease. The engine’s refinement and smooth gearbox make for a satisfying ride. The upright and comfortable riding position, along with the slightly rear-set footpads, further add to the motorcycle’s appeal.
Additionally, its relatively light weight of 154 kg makes for agile performance and effortless maneuvering through traffic. The motorcycle also features ample low and mid-range power, smooth and precise gear shifting, and a sporty exhaust note that complements the engine’s free-revving nature.
