Bajaj Pulsar NS160 vs rivals
Bajaj Pulsar NS160 has received an update recently, revising its competition against rivals like TVS Apache RTR 160 4V and Hero Xtreme 160R 4V.

Bajaj Auto launched the updated iteration of the Pulsar NS160 motorcycle in India just a few days ago. The 160 cc motorcycle was launched alongside its other siblings such as Pulsar NS200 and Pulsar NS125. The all-new updated Bajaj Pulsar NS160 comes revising its competition with rivals such as Hero Xtreme 160R 4V and TVS Apache RTYR 160 4V, intensifying the battle in this space.

Indian consumers, especially the young generation buyers, prefer to go for higher displacement premium motorcycles. This shift in consumer preference has resulted in increasing sales of 160 cc or higher engine capacity motorcycles, instead of the 100-125 cc models. Almost all the major two-wheeler manufacturers in India have introduced their respective products in the 160 cc and 200 cc segments. Also, they have been updating the motorcycles regularly to sustain their demand and sales.
