Bajaj Pulsar 150 range prices have now been revised. For the brand, its Pulsar 150 series is a high volume product. Within the product range, the price hike extends from Rs 499 to Rs 2,950.
Bajaj Pulsar 150 is available in three variants – Revised prices stands as follows – Pulsar 150 Neon up from Rs 68,250 to Rs 71,200 at an increase of Rs 2,950; Pulsar 150 Single Disc ABS is up from Rs 84,461 to Rs 84,960 at an increase of 499 bucks. Pulsar 150 Twin Disc variant is now priced at Rs 88,838, up from Rs 88,339 at an increase of Rs 499. All prices are ex-sh.
The price hike is a periodic one, and doesn’t ride on tech updates. Pulsar 150 gets power from a 149.5 cc SOHC, 2-Valve, air-cooled, single-cylinder, Twin Spark DTS-i engine that returns max power of 14 PS at 8,000 rpm, and 13.4 Nm of peak torque at 6,000 rpm.
Where the bikes differ is braking ability. Pulsar 150 Single Disc ABS gets a front disc brake and rear drum. Pulsar 150 Twin Disc variant sports a front and rear disc. Pulsar 150 Neon variant is a single disc variant but as the name suggests, the body work is adorned in bright neon coloured bits. As mandated, all Pulsar 150 variants feature single-channel ABS.
As the industry preps for implementation of BSVI norms, 2020 Bajaj Pulsar 150 has been spied testing. In its test avatar, it’s only likely that the bike is being tested with FI (fuel injection). Little is expected to change in terms of mechanics.
Styling of the front break lines could differ, and the test vehicle sports suspension fork reflectors, and gold calipers. The segment is a competitive one for Bajaj. For the brand, the Pulsar series does well. Within that, the Pulsar 150 range does well.
With Pulsar, the automaker is going one up, and Bajaj Pulsar 125 will soon be sold in India. It is yet unknown whether the bike will get power engine that powers the NS125 sold overseas. That power unit is a 124.45 cc, single-cylinder, air-cooled engine that returns max power of 11.8 bhp, and 11 Nm of torque, mated to a five-speed transmission.
Bajaj also has the Discover 125 engine to choose from. While the bike will feature CBS as mandated, it’s yet to be seen if the entry level Pulsar will be sold as a BSVI compliant unit from day one.
