Must Read Questions & Answers Before Buying Pulsar 180

Q. Does the pulsar 150 can go for a long ride which is about 300 kms?
  • Definitely you can go, it depends how did you maintain your bike. Take rest for 20minutes or 30minutes after every 100KM, this technique will create less pressure on your bike. : By Anunoy | 4 months ago
  • You will feel... back pain.. for long ride i will suggest to go for 180 cc pulsar : By Vipul | 1 month ago
  • Yeah pulsar can go anywherebut instead of 150 if its 180 then more comfortable and safe cause 180 has more pickup and dual disc brakes : By Rajat | 8 months ago
Q. How is the performance - Pulsar 180?
  • The 178.6cc, single-cylinder, 4-stroke motor generates a maximum power output of 17.02PS @ 8500rpm and 14.22Nm of torque at 6500rpm. The power is transferred to the rear wheel via a 5-speed gearbox. The Pulsar 180 has a fuel tank capacity of 15 litres and weighs in at 145kg at the kerb. Braking is managed by a 260mm disc up front and a 230mm drum at the rear. The Pulsar 180 features similar power figures as the Apache RTR 180. Even though it has started to show its age, it still retains the gruff character of the first Pulsars. Also, the Pulsar feels more planted and sturdy around corners. Barring the Apache RTR 180 with ABS, which costs Rs 10,000 more than than the standard version and the Pulsar 180, the latter still comes across as a handsome package. : By Zigwheels | 1 year ago
