The famous Bajaj Pulsar N160 single-channel ABS model is no longer available from Bajaj Auto.
The decision is the result of a change in customer preference for the dual-channel ABS counterpart’s superior safety features.
When the car first reached the roads, it was available in single and dual-channel ABS variants, priced at Rs. 1,22,854 and Rs. 1,27,853/-(ex-showroom), respectively. However, the small price difference of Rs. 5000 per unit rapidly pushed purchasers in the direction of the dual-channel ABS’s claimed increased safety.
Dealerships within the Bajaj network saw a sharp drop in demand for the single-channel ABS model, with a resounding preference for the dual-channel version. A few months ago, Bajaj Auto made the bold decision to stop selling the single-channel ABS version in response to this customer trend.
Right now, the Bajaj Pulsar N160 is the only model with the dual-channel ABS function. It costs Rs. 1,30,560/-(ex-showroom, Delhi) and comes in three color options: Caribbean Blue, Racing Red, and Brooklyn Black.
The bike’s powerful 164.82cc single-cylinder, air-oil-cooled engine produces 16 horsepower and 14.65 Nm of torque while it is under the hood. The Bajaj Pulsar N160 is a strong competitor in its market, taking on bikes like the TVS Apache RTR 160 4V, Yamaha FZ-S Fi V3.0, Suzuki Gixxer, and Hero Xtreme 160R 4V.
Bajaj Auto intends to discontinue the single-channel ABS model in order to align its product selection with changing customer demands and market conditions.
