Bajaj Pulsar N160 Price Diffference

The overall design of the N160 has been carried forward from the bigger Pulsar N250 sports bike. Bajaj claims that the construction of the 160 was based on the 250 itself. This is bluntly visible as there are slim to no changes in the styling and outlook of both the bikes. As the N160 comes in two variants, the pricing also differs.

The single-channel is less costly to construct and hence it is priced at Rs 1.23 lakh ex-showroom Delhi. Contrarily, the dual-channel ABS variant comes with more tech and bigger specs, it is priced at Rs 1.28 lakh ex-showroom Delhi. It must be noted that the pricing differs according to the cities.

Feature Difference

As the name suggests, the single-channel ABS variant has only one unit of ABS. It is placed at the front tyre. This means the rear tyre can still lock up in case of emergency braking. As each coin has two faces, the lack of rear ABS has been covered up in the reduced sticker price. Hence, the single-channel ABS is less costly to buy.

Apparently, the dual-channel ABS variant comes with the rear tyre ABS as well. This further helps in the safety and handling of the bike. The emergency braking performance of this variant is superior to the single-channel ABS variant.

Suspension Difference

The major difference is visible in the front suspension of both variants. The single-channel ABS bike comes with a 31 mm diameter telescopic fork suspension. The performance of this suspension is good and confidence-inspiring altogether. At the city speeds, the bumps and undulations are easily ironed out by this variant.

Contrastingly, the dual-channel ABS variant has a thicker 37 mm telescopic fork setup. This aids in high-speed braking performance and enhances the stability of the bike in emergency brake situations.

The reason behind this difference in fork size is simple as per Bajaj. The single-channel ABS variant feels lighter at the front due to slim forks. This means the handling is improved in tight city traffic. According to the company, most of the single-channel buyers will use the bike mainly inside the city. The dual-channel ABS variant, however, is more stable even at high-speed.
