Even as the Indian customers continue to wait for the long overdue Bajaj Pulsar 150 NS, the Pune-based automaker has been exporting the model to 8 countries for quite some time now. About 1 lakh units of the 150 NS have already been shipped out of India.
Bajaj has confirmed that the production and export operations of the Pulsar 150 NS to Colombia and some other Latin American countries have been on for quite some time now now. The compact displacement street fighter has been shipped to Mexico, Peru, Ecuador, Turkey, Finland, Thailand and the United States.
Colombia is learnt to be the single largest market for the motorcycle. Launched in association with Bajaj’s local partner Auteco, the Bajaj Pulsar 150 NS is on sale in the country since March 15 this year. The motorcycle which derives its design from the Pulsar 200 NS (which is another motorcycle which is currently not on sale in India) is powered by a 149 cc single-cylinder air-cooled engine outputting an impressive 17 PS, and 13 Nm of torque when mated to a 5-speed gearbox.
Already spied on test in India, its launch here is expected to take place in 2017. Ahead of its India launch, Bajaj has revealed a new video of the new Pulsar 150 NS. Speaking about their new 150 NS, Bajaj says – Here’s how the new Pulsar Naked Sport 150 ticks all the boxes. Be it Raw Power, Control or Balance, it’s got it all. Built with features to compete anything that stands its way only to give you, the power to play.

The motorcycle is being exported as CKD (Completely Knocked Down) kits where Bajaj has a local assembly facility and as SKD (Semi Knocked Down) kits to markets without Bajaj-owned assembly lines.
