Bajaj Pulsar N160 vs TVS Apache 160 4V Drag Race
The YouTuber mentions that it was not easy to get the bikes as the showrooms refuse to give them. But he still managed to get these. In the first attempt, he gets atop the Pulsar while his friend rides the Apache. It must be mentioned that the Apache is slightly more powerful and lighter than the Pulsar. That is visible right from the beginning of the race. The Apache took the lead and continued to stay in the front for the entire duration of the match. The Pulsar was unable to catch it. In the second attempt, the riders were switched.

Interestingly, the weight difference between the riders caused the Pulsar to win this round despite the Apache having the power advantage. This was an interesting observation which led to the YouTuber doing another round with 2 people on the Apache with a combined weight of around 95 kg and him on the Pulsar (85 kg). The Apache was ahead for the longest time here as well. It was concluded that Apache was slightly more powerful which means that it is the winner of this drag race by the slightest of margins.

The Pulsar N160 gets a 164.8-cc air-oil-cooled engine churning out 16 PS and 14.65 Nm of peak power and torque. This engine is mated to a 5-speed manual gearbox. On the other hand, the Apache 160 4V gets a 159.7 cc, single-cylinder with 4 valves and an air-cooled engine which makes a decent 17.63 PS of power at 9,250 RPM and 14.73 Nm of torque at 7,250 RPM. It is also mated to a 5-speed manual gearbox. It is clear from the specs comparison that the more powerful bike is the Apache which is why it managed to win.
