Bajaj Pulsar 180F Overview

With the launch of the Pulsar 180 naked, Bajaj has pulled the plug on its half-faired Pulsar 180F. The latter had become rather pricey (when on sale: Rs 1,14,003, ex-showroom Delhi) and was not selling as well as Bajaj intended. With the demise of the 180F, the only half-faired Pulsar you can buy now is the Pulsar 220F. More details on the model's discontinuation in this story here.


The Pulsar 180F looks like a spitting image of its elder sibling, the Pulsar 220F. The half-fairing has been around for over a decade, with the design aging beautifully like fine wine. On the 180F, Bajaj has provided neon orange elements that work well with the matte black colour scheme. You could also opt for the gloss black and red combo but the former would be our pick of the two.


There aren’t many modern features on the Pulsar 180F to talk about. No LED headlights, no full digital displays or fancy equipment to boast of. You get dual vertically-stacked projector headlights, which is the same setup as the 220F. The tail-light is LED lit but conventional bulbs are used for the turn indicators. The layout of the semi-digital information console hasn’t changed for nearly a decade as it continues to show data like fuel gauge, speedometer, trip meter and odometer. The tachometer remains analogue. The only premium bit of feature that you find is backlit switches, a novelty feature that you find on all Pulsars.


Powering the Pulsar 180F remains the trusty old 178.6cc single-cylinder DTS-i engine, which, now in its BS6 guise, produces 17.02PS and 14.52Nm. The peak torque has gone up marginally, 0.32Nm more, thanks to the inclusion of fuel-injection. There are no changes to the five-speed gearbox.

On the Bajaj Pulsar 180F, you find a conventional telescopic fork and gas-charged twin rear shocks (with preload adjustability) handling suspension duties. The 6-spoke 17-inch alloy wheels remain the same as they come shod with a slim 90/90-section front and similarly slim 120/80-section rear tyres. There are disc brakes at both ends. Bajaj has equipped the Pulsar 180F with single-channel ABS to save on costs.

Q. Which is best between Pulsar 180F and Hero Xtreme 200S. Will both bikes give at least 40km/l mileage on daily commute and weekend long drives?
  • Bajaj Pulsar 180F captures the essence of the Pulsar 220F and is an ideal motorcycle for those who wanted the larger Pulsar but didn’t have the budget for it. Moreover, the only reason we see someone purchasing the Pulsar 180F over its larger sibling is if the buyer is on a tight budget. But, even around the same price point, you also have better options such as the Hero Xtreme 200S. If you are looking for a powerful commuter that can handle the daily duties really well, offers comfortable seating position, looks stylish and rides well then the Xtreme 200S would be a better option for you. As for the mileage, the Pulsar 180F managed to deliver almost 48kmpl in our highway run and 48.95kmpl in the city test. The mileage figure for the Xtreme 200S are yet to be revealed but we expect it to be around 35-40kmpl. Moreover, we would suggest you to take a test ride for a better understanding of comfort and compatibility. You may click on the link and select your desired city for dealership details.
  • But hero gives the best after sale service, that's why it is the no.1 bike selling company in India
  • Thanks a lot.plan to buy xpulse 200 or Xtreme 200S
Q. Which is better either 180F or 220F
  • I own 180F and surely it doesn't make much difference with 220F...both in performance and comfort also 180F can give very good mileage....if we ride with low rpm we will get good mileage for regular rides and in other cases we can go for power....engine heat is a bit more...and it emits so...after all considering its all sides...it is a better option being a balanced one...
  • According to me it's totally depends on your budget if you are having a good budget then go for 220f you can go for 180f but there is a lack i.e neither you get a liquid or oil cooled engine . may be on long rides you may face some problems
  • It's depending upon your budget.. if you have good amount of money go for 220f which gives more power..if you have less budget go for 180f which gives good power too for 180 cc engine. looks wise both are same but cc varies..

    The Pulsar 220F competes with the Hero Xtreme 200S. The Xtreme 200S is the most affordable 200cc faired motorcycle, it also has an impressive features list, which works in its favour. The Pulsar 220F, doesn’t boast a long feature list, but it has always remained a proper value-for-money motorcycle for someone looking for a sporty motorcycle.It still comes in two colours: blue and red

Is the addition of fairing a smart move or is Bajaj milking the legacy of the Pulsar 220 too much with the new Pulsar 180F?
