From design to the engine, the iconic Pulsar has been completely modernised

Bajaj has launched the Pulsar P150 in India with an attractive price tag of Rs 1,16,755 (ex-showroom Delhi). While it does retain the iconic name and essence of the 150, it is completely reimagined to take on the new breed of commuter sporty bikes. Here’s how it differs from its predecessor:

Design

Elementally, the Pulsar P150 is everything that a Pulsar should be – a sharp, sporty and quite simple bike.  It is not too out there or flashy. It gets a new bi-LED projector headlamp, quite an upgrade.

It is sportier than before, closer to its new siblings like the Pulsar N160 and N250, yet not so much to be mistaken for them. Meaning it would still stand apart in its vast family.

In the 150cc segment, the Pulsar 150 has been the one to retain the top position with its output  figures. Well the idea hasn’t changed, but the figures have, they are marginally higher than before.

Now the new engine is based on the Pulsar N160, and that powertrain is an absolute delight for commuting around the city. So we can expect the same amount of refinement and ease of ride as the N160, oh and also better fuel efficiency than the previous gen 150.

Underpinnings

Built on the new generation Pulsar platform, the P150 gets a telescopic fork and a monoshock suspension setup, whereas the previous gen 150 employed a dual shock setup at the rear. Both bikes get the option for drum and disc brake setup or discs at both ends. However, the sizes are different:

The P150 is also lighter, tipping the scales at 140kg kerb, while the previous one is much heavier, weighing at 148kg for the single disc variant and 150kg (both kerb) for the twin disc one.

Features

While both feature a semi-digital instrument cluster, the P150 borrows its unit – a bezelless console –  from the N160 and Pulsar 250 twins . The fancier console has a gear position indicator and distance-to-empty readout, both of which should come in handy during commuting. The P150 also comes with a USB charger.

Coming to the prices, the price for the P150 starts at Rs 1,16,755 (for single disc) and goes up to Rs 1,19,757 (twin disc). The previous gen 150 bears a price tag of Rs 1,04,448, Rs 1,11,174 and Rs 1,14,176 for the Neon, single disc and dual disc variants respectively. All ex-showroom Delhi. 

While the P150, at present, is available only in select cities, it will reach more cities across the country soon. And the standard 150, then, is likely to be discontinued.
