Pulsar Ns 160 Fi Abs Price in Bangladesh 2021 | Features, Review & Others

There’s a bike craze going on in Bangladesh right now. Despite the CC limits on the bike engines, our young generation is inclining towards various kinds of bike categories more and more. Among these, the sports category seems to have a particular following in Bangladesh. Bajaj Pulsar NS 160 Fi ABS is a relatively new introduction to the Bangladeshi people. But it already has gained significant traction for its features, looks, and weight of the name Bajaj carries. There’s a reason why people choose Bajaj over other brands. It took them years to create these fans, and they continue to impress us with new introductions and the reliability of the ones that they introduced in the past.

The Famed Bajaj Pulsar Series


Many people still talk about their nostalgia of seeing a Bajaj Pulsar years ago for the first time in their teens. It was one of the coolest bikes in the streets of Bangladesh, not to mention one of the fastest too.
But the times have changed wildly. Massive names like Honda and Yamaha have entered this market in quite an aggressive fashion. The likes of Aprilia, KTM aren’t far behind either. Even some Chinese bike brands are fighting for a place in this market. So, Bajaj has to fight with the big boys now and some budget ones to keep themselves visible in this hustle and bustle.

Bajaj Pulsar NS 160 ABS Review

The Pulsar series came into existence in 2001. Since then, Pulsar remained one of the popular choices amongst bikers. The Pulsar series from Bajaj has many segments available both in India and in Bangladesh. Namely, the 150, 180 and 200 cc segments. They are reliable and popular. Pulsars have matured since their inception, and they continue to be a dominant name in the motorcycle market.
The Bajaj Pulsar NS160 was first launched in mid-2017 in India. In Bangladesh, Bajaj launched the FI-ABS variant of the NS160 on September 29, 2019. It’s similar to the Bajaj Pulsar NS160 featurewise with the Anti-Lock Braking or ABS braking System, but a Fuel Injection system now replaces the carburettor.
In the 160cc segment, the Pulsar NS 160 is one of the popular bikes. It got an upgrade recently. Although the overall design, colour scheme, seating position and the engine displacement remain unchanged, they added an FI engine, single-channel ABS, Dual-disc brake and 120/80 sections tyre for better performance.

Design & Looks

Bajaj updated the design and looks of the current Pulsar. This new version has a different approach to the overall design language and paint scheme as compared to the previous version. This bike looks even more muscular now with new decals and the new paint scheme, an aggressive headlight design and an underbelly muffler. This is the only bike of its class to have an underbelly exhaust.
The distinct two-part tail light is stylish and a joy to watch. The fuel tank remains big and sculpted. It contains 14.4 litres of fuel, 2.4 litres of which is reserve fuel capacity. The front extension kit holds the 160 logos. The split seat and stylish pillion grab rail make it look sporty. The engine cowl gets a matching colour with the fuel tank. The headlamp and dashboard unit also remains unchanged. During the rainy season, the two mudguards on the rear wheel will help you.

Colour Options

Every colour options for this bike are a dual-tone. Personally, I’d say that the bike looks gorgeous in all of these options. However, you may have a subjective taste for one, it’s totally understandable. These are the colour options that are currently available-
1. Burnt Red
2. Satin Blue

Dimensions & Seating position

The new Pulsar has premium and well-padded seats. Bajaj promises that it will give you optimal comfort in the long journeys. The handlebar faces towards the rider. The seating position is comfortable too. The length of this bike is 2017mm and width 803mm and the height being 1060mm, and the wheelbase is 1370mm on which the 148kg bike stands. Ground clearance is plenty for Bangladeshi roads at 176 mm. The tyres used are 90/100-17 section in front and 120/80-17 section in the rear.

Engine Performance

Bajaj Pulsar NS160 FI ABS comes with a 160.3cc displacement, 4 Stroke, single-cylinder, 4-valve DTS-i engine that is oil-cooled and fuel injected. It can burn out 15.28 bhp maximum power at 8500 RPM and 14.6 Nm of torque at 6500 RPM. It’s the same as that of the previous versions. But this new edition gets an EFI (Electric Fuel Injection) engine instead of a carburettor one. That will ensure the proper use of fuel. This is also why this bike is a bit more efficient. You can also expect its reliability to shoot a bit higher too, compared to the previous versions. The transmission consists of a 5-speed manual gearbox and a wet multi-plate clutch system. Like the earlier models, the aerodynamic shape helps it reach a top speed of 127 km/h.

Suspension & Brakes

The front end features a dual telescopic system with Anti-Friction Bush suspension, and the rear end features a Mono Shock Absorber with Nitrox Canister. These are reliable suspensions systems, and they’ll provide a satisfactory comfort level in off-road conditions. The bike features a Pressed Steel Perimeter frame type chassis. This chassis is rigid, and it will provide stability and balance during the ride.
Bajaj also added the dual-disc braking system into this bike and also single-channel ABS. This essentially means the front will have ABS while the rear will not. You will definitely feel the extra oomph of this bike’s braking system. They are smoother, and they’ll allow you to have more stability in tight conditions. The front disc is a 260 mm Petal Disc paired to the wheel with a 90/90-17 49P tire. The rear disc is a slightly smaller 230mm disc, and it is attached to a 120/80-17 61P tire. Both the wheels have tubeless tires. This means no sudden deflation as well as better performance when the wheels get challenged to rough environments.

Mileage

The previous Pulsar NS160 had a carburettor fed fuel system for the engine. But this time Bajaj upgraded the engine with the FI system. This ensured that the efficiency of the bike went up. As a result, you can have better mileage in this new version. It promises to provide 42-45 km/l average mileage in the city conditions. But on the highway, you can expect to get more out of it.

Instrument Panel & Features

The instrument cluster on the NS160 FI ABS is semi-digital. Half of the instrument panels, like the tachometer, fuel gauge and the indicator lights signal, are all analogue systems. However, the odometer, speedometer, and the clock- all are digital.

Best Usage and why people buy the NS160 FI ABS

Bajaj makes it clear that the new Pulsar NS160 FI ABS is for the youth. The target demographic that Bajaj has set looks to be the students and young employees. The bold look, aggressive specs say it all. But it is equally usable by our older generation. Many middle-aged users have expressed their satisfaction in using this bike daily for commuting and inter-city riding.
At highway speeds, this motorcycle is equally suitable for Bangladeshi roads. Of course, the story would change if it were another country, but let’s be honest here: other countries haven’t set a ridiculous CC limit either. Bajaj has to work with what they have, not what they can. Thanks to the NS 160 Fi ABS’ comfortable seating arrangement for both the rider and the pillion, inter-city rides will also be enjoyable. The newer systems allow the bike to be more efficient, fun and safe at the same time.

Main Competitors

The market in the 160cc and the 150cc segment is heavily saturated now. However, Bajaj Pulsars have a rich history with Bangladeshi people. They are not just another commuting vehicle for them, but rather a status symbol too.
Bajaj always delivered what the people want and this time it’s no different.
When we go buy a bike, we have a price in mind and the features that we want at that price. The Bajaj NS160 Fi ABS ticks most of the feature boxes in its price segment, if not all. This is why even when met with some fierce competition, people are still loving the Bajaj. Its price to performance is just too sweet to skip over.
