Bajaj Pulsar 180 Latest Updates

Despite re-launching the model in February, Bajaj has increased the asking price of the Pulsar 180 to Rs 1,09,651 (ex-showroom Delhi). The new sticker price is still around Rs 5,000 cheaper than the Pulsar 180F, which was discontinued soon after the launch of the naked. The half-faired version Pulsar never did sell handsomely and with the recent price revisions, it was getting quite expensive. Hence, it made good sense for Bajaj to reintroduce the naked once again at a lower price point and keep the model alive. The Pulsar 220F remains the only half-faired member of the family once again.

Bajaj Pulsar 180 Price

Just like the majority of the Pulsars, the Pulsar 180 too has received a price premium of Rs 1,747, which has increased the asking price to Rs 1,09,651 (ex-showroom Delhi).

Pulsar 180 Specifications

The Pulsar 180 uses a BS6-compliant air-cooled single-cylinder 178.6cc engine that makes 17PS of power at 8,500rpm and 14.22Nm of torque at 6,500rpm. It’s mated to a 5-speed transmission. It makes 0.2PS and 0.3Nm less than the 180F’s engine. The Pulsar 180 gets telescopic forks at the front and a five-step adjustable gas-charged monoshock. Its braking hardware comprises a 280mm front and 230mm rear disc setup. With a kerb weight of 145kg, the Pulsar 180 weighs 10kg less compared to the 180F.

Pulsar 180 Design

The Pulsar 180 design has remained unchanged for ages now. It sports the same halogen headlamp and bulb indicators. It uses a split seat and slightly forward set handlebar for a sporty appearance. For enhanced aesthetics, Bajaj Pulsar comes with contrasting graphics all over.

Pulsar 180 Features

On the feature front, the Pulsar 180 gets an analogue tachometer and an LCD screen that displays the fuel level, speed, and the odometer.

Bajaj Pulsar 180 Competitors

The Pulsar 180 competes against the TVS Apache RTR 180 and the Honda Hornet 2.0. However, for the same price, you can also get the TVS Apache RTR 160 4V, Pulsar NS160, Yamaha FZS FI-V3, and the Hero Xtreme 160R.

Editor's View of Bajaj Pulsar 180

  • Upside

    Bang for buck, Good acceleration, Easy to ride in city

  • Downside

    Too many vibes once you cross 5,000rpm, Fit and finish levels need improvements, Gearbox isn’t smooth

  • Our Verdict

    It is still one of Bajaj's more popular models and is seen as a sportier alternative in the 150cc class. But, the bike has begun to show its age, and not just in styling alone.


Pulsar 180 Detailed Review

Back in June 2002, the very first Bajaj Pulsar 180 TV commercial sent a shockwave through the biking community in India leaving all bikers wondering what the new Pulsar would be. Enter 2009 - the fourth generation Pulsar 180 DTSi is an entirely new motorcycle. Do not mistake it to be a mere cosmetic upgrade as she packs in some serious new equipment within its frame. Already a market leader in the premium motorcycle segment in India, Bajaj Auto's latest assault in the form of the 2009 Pulsar Edition promises to keep the company perched on top of the performance bike segment.

Looks & Built:

Before we get into the technical nitty-gritty's of the new bike, one critical improvement needs to be mentioned. The overall quality of parts on this new breed of bikes from the Pune-based bike-maker has improved significantly compared to the first generation Pulsars. The plastics, fittings and other cycle parts have a sturdy feel to them and the new Pulsar is definitely a well-put-together motorcycle. However, the finish on certain parts like indicator holders and the side panel locks could have been better. Once the sight reaches the trademark Pulsar fuel-tank, first thing you notice is the addition of tank shrouds that it borrows from the bigger Pulsar 200 DTSi. Couple that to the beefy 37mm front telescopic suspension (borrowed from the Bajaj Auto's flagship product, the Pulsar 220 DTS-Fi) and what you get is a more aggressive-streetfighter-like Pulsar 180 "Ditsy"



Powertrain:

The new Pulsar retains the same five-speed gearbox from the earlier models albeit with minor changes to the gear ratios. The gearing has been shortened a bit and the first gear feels very short. The Bajaj R&D has focused on improving mid-range and ride ability of the new Pulsar which gives it a strong punchy feel from 3Ks all the way up to the redline at 9,500rpm. The gearshifts are slick and precise with each gear change giving that confident feel of the gear getting slot in harmony. The roll-ons directly benefit from the Pulsar's added power and torque as slotted in 5th cog - the bike did the 30-70km/h dash in remarkable 9.23 seconds.

Ride & Feel:

The ergonomics on the new Pulsar 180 too have been altered to complete the new bike's sporty appeal. The view from the seat also gets more lively and spirited with the white-dial digital console and the clip-on handlebars from the 220. The clip-on's really make for a sporty riding posture just adequate enough to do spirited riding but they will not be uncomfortable in the stop-and-go city traffic. The split-seat from the bigger Pulsars further adds to the new bike's charm. But as mentioned earlier, there is a lot more to the new Pulsar 180, than what meets the eye. The wheelbase is increased by 25mm (from 1320mm to 1345mm) while sharing the handling duties with the double-downtube chassis is the oval-section swingarm taken from the Pulsar 200/220 inventory.



The fatter swingarm and well-tuned suspension have added great amount of stability and handling dexterity to the Pulsar 180, making it an extremely well-balanced motorcycle in its class. Old Pulsar-owners will agree that the earlier generation Pulsars felt twitchy through corners and lacked high-speed stability. But this new bike feels completely different altogether when tackling corners. She tips in with precision and holds the line with utmost conviction. Thanks to the beefy forks from the 220, mid-corner stability is unbelievably good and attacking the long sweeping corners at full whack is a breeze.

Motor & Might:

Unlike the norm with bike-makers in India, Bajaj Auto has actually given this new Pulsar 180 additional firepower to go with its rekindled spirit. The 178cc motor has been tuned further and it now makes 17.02PS of power at 8,500rpm. The performance-centred tuning on the new Pulsar 180 makes it one of the quickest bike's off-the-line in its class. The bike weighs two kilograms less than the Pulsar 200 DTSi but also makes marginally less power - however, in terms of performance she manages to post times comparable to the 200. During our test for the 0-60km/h run she posted an acceleration time of 4.64 seconds and the 100km/h mark came in just 14 seconds. Very impressive!



Living with it:

Staying true to its sporty roots and stylish aura, the fourth generation Pulsar 180 does away with the kick lever and the heel-toe gear shifter seen on the earlier models too gets trashed for a sportier toe-shift lever. The fatter MRF rubber too comes directly from the larger Pulsars and gives the 180 a much planted feel, though the increased contact patch coupled with extra weight does require a little more effort to corner the new 180 than its earlier variants. Fuel efficiency is not great but just enough as the fatter rubber and increased mass does affect the over fuel consumption of the new Pulsar. In our tests, the 180 returned us an overall fuel efficiency figure of 54.3kmpl, which is not great, but if you consider the performance and the additional power, it is quite a respectable figure.

Verdict:

All in all it's a very good effort from Bajaj Auto to capitalize on the Pulsar lineage and strengthen the Pulsar brand even more. Priced also very very competitively, at Rs. 62,890 (Ex-showroom, Pune), this sort of an upgrade to the original top end Pulsar is only good news for its very many fans. Though better would be the launch news of the new Pulsar 200 and the flagship Pulsar in the pipeline.

    It was 2013, Me and my brother were looking for a 150cc bike for daily commute and and at that time all we had were Pulsar, Apache, Fz, Fazer, Cb Xtreme, Hunk and Unicorn. Moreover our commute was to college and we needed a snap...so i was convincing my brother and family for bigger bikes like pulsar 220, R15 and 200NS but effeciency was also concerned where petrol price hike was an issue back then and till now! lol So on keeping all factors...we were close with 3- Pulsar 180, Pulsar 220 and Apache 180 (hero twins were not sure on production and availability). And eyes closed we've rejected Apache for vibrations as soon as we first test ridden it as our daily commute was about 80-100 kms. So it was within the same brand and with efficiency concerned we had no further option rather than sticking with 180. We were already a fan of Pulsar for its looks and features. firstly illuminated switch gears, auto turn off indicators and DC lighting. which made it standout from the bikes back then. First Impression: From the first sight the naked styling with clip-ons , Fatter front and rear tires with chunky forks it looks kinda strong addition to twin pilot lamps(Wolf eyed) styling with Speedlines vinyl(half black) was quiet impressive.Build: The bike is slightly heavy as it's on 220s chassis and Metal fuel tank, heavy exhaust which makes hefty and the Fit and finish is average causing skeeching noises and till 3 years there were no rust signs but the paint of black parts like engine block, cylinder fins, exhaust, wheels were poor which is visible to naked eye itself. But other than that the metal body doesnt make any issues.. with proper maintenance the bike keeps on shining and its been 7 years haven't seen the paint peel off...infact paint quality is still great even on plastic panels. And the bike is quite silent in regular speeds without buzz,only in top end the foot pegs and seats get the buzz. Ergonomics: At the beginning i felt the bike was heavy for my age which is common but later was in love with the ergonomics, especially the comfortable not so low clip-ons and back slung pedals the position is spot on for long rides. Also pillion seat was big enough and equally as spacious like 150 and not bad. But fixation of ladies footrest(saree) is not possible as suspension is taller in 180. Only care to be taken is when pillion gets backpack, the extended plastic end gets scratched easily. Overall the position is good for both city and Highway conditions with upright torso and lean back pedals.Seats are a tad hard comparing to any bike. long rides were never delightful with these, hard cushion makes it sturdy in city conditions but for long rides sore b**t is for sure. And wind blast is vigorous at even 80 kmph which bike does it in ease and unless you tug in, doing high speeds is like a pullback! Performance: Having 180 is surely advantage where no 150 commuters messes around...overall performance compared to Apache 180, Pulsar 180 is not close to Apache 180 where the acceleration is better in apache with shorter gearing but pulsar shines in Topspeed and Highway cruising with ease maintaining triple digits without any vibrations. The additional weight of pulsar is also visible in acceleration. However the Torque spread is from 4000rpm above that which the bike pulls straight to 9000rpm and after that the juice fades which is limited with Cdi to 10000rpm. Transmission is something that was hectic in pulsars back then with sluggish gear shifts which usually makes you held up in neutral while shifting from 1st to second and engaging 5th gear from 4th was quiet a task. Clutch is not as light as japanese but still Lighter than any Royal Enfields back then. The Engine is air cooled and does the job with no issues but i havent risked it longer than 100 kms. Took a break for every 100kms in long rides. And the bike came up without any fuss even on topend. Clocked 52k kms till now and reached topspeed of 154 kmph.(not sure may be bajajs speedo error) haven't checked in GPS but sure that'll be close.Braking: one thing that im impressed is with the brakes.. with soft suspension in front and heavy front end makes the bikes brakes so confident inspiring without locking front wheels and bigger disc offers decent feel in the lever. One thing old pulsar 180 model missed is Rear disc. Mine got only Drum at rear which usually locksup in solo and not that confident inspiring with pillion. even on locking the wider tires(MRFs) gives enough confident to ride hard. the softer front suspension helps in not locking up front wheels but nose dive is heavy and unless you have straight roads for stopping surely needs skills. while cornering definitely Pulsar is not composed or even confident inspiring like Apache and 200NS , Pulsar 180 feels kinda bouncy and usually the exhaust scraps down in right and foot pegs in left. But where Pulsar shines is in highways with add on weight and long wheelbase the stability is unmatched, it can do Triple digits all day long without making the rider giving a shock unless you change the seat(bahoth hard)! Also the adjustable nitrox only softens and stiffens up rear end while the most important is front suspension which is miss. Milege: When ridden soft and not so aggressively the figures keepup above 40 kmpl and in highway it stretches to 45 kmpl and in average i get around 42kmpl, With Huge 15 litres tank the Range easily 500 kms. Overall: Pulsar 180 is a bike above 150cc commuters and does the work in its own style and 18 years of legacy in Indian motorcycling. Especially that snap over the 150s and 160 cc's like Apache 160, Fz and Fazer is definitely worth it. Now the Pulsar 180F is only available with semi-fairing and not in naked street, which is very much needed especially for that windblast in cruising speeds. Its the bike that's not for maniac riding and amature riding, its the one for city limit crossing commuters conquering both city and highway conditions, who rides like a commuter and want a bit fun occasionally. That brand and classic Wolf pack styling is always Nostalgic.

    I am satisfied with the pickup that's it, It max don't support a riding comfort, I suggest you people to have the better bike with the best seating position, As for mileage there should be no worries bcoz now a days people done have much concentration on mileage due to all the upgraded bikes are of the same mileage with 1 to 5 km variation.So please think twice and select a bike make sure to have a test ride if they they refuse to give a test drive then simply avoid that showroom or the specific bije.

    I had bought this bike Pulsar 180 DTSI in the beginning of the year 2005 from the first owner. The first owner want to sell because the new model having an alloy wheel was just arrived. Making a trip more than 100000 kms, my engine still remain intact. The cost of genuine part is not too much, the performance and reliability is good. I used it to make a trip in the rugged and slippery roads of the hilly areas, I do recommended and it will still be my first choice bike for my needs

  • 5.0

    This is simply the best bike.I own this since 2013 and have completed 63000 kms.The bike still has no performance issues as such.The maintenance cost is quite low or rather, I would say it's a maintenance free bike.The fuel efficiency comes roughly between 42 to 45kms per litre which is quite good as compared to any other 180cc bikes.Also, Have taken this bike for long tours (2000 kms) and it has never caused any problems during and after the ride.

  • 4.6

    1- power is good2- maintenance is a bit high (engine oil + parts worn out , parts are kinda costly)3- if you maintain it, you get a nice mileage of 45-55 kmpl4- its the mechanic who makes it costly for owners to keep such a good bike5- I've been riding it since 2016 and have been to tough places with this bike it never disappointed me6- a good engine it has but sports bike has an age of 5-6 years
