Bajaj Pulsar NS160 Design and Styling
The new Bajaj Pulsar NS 160 looks bold and aggressive. The NS160 gets large cowls for its fuel tank. This give it a very sporty and masculine look. The engine and the alloys are painted black, which give the NS160 a slightly rugged touch. The new Pulsar gets dual hydraulic telescopic suspension at front while a mono-shock suspension at the rear. The split seats have a large seating area for comfortable ride. The bike gets split grab rails. There are stylish turn indicators. The tail lamps are familiar split lamps that we see on new generation Pulsars.
The fuel lid also seems inspired by the Pulsar 200 NS with a similar Aluminum finish aircraft-type lid. The instrument cluster again reminds you of the 200 NS. The instrument panel sports a large analogue tachometer, a digital speedometer with fuel and temperature gauge. It also houses some warning lamps and trip meters, odo-meters build it. The handle bar is also sporty and has clip on-style handle bars. The drive chain is covered only from top. This gives it a more stylish visual appeal. The Aluminum-finished side foot-pegs and levers have a premium and sporty look.
