There’s soon going to be a new Bajaj Pulsar bike in town, as multiple test mules of the Pulsar N150 have recently been spotted across Maharashtra. These spy shots have given us an idea of what to expect from this upcoming Pulsar, and here are five things we know about the 2022 Bajaj Pulsar N150:

Multiple Variants

The most important revelation about the Pulsar N150 is that it will be available in two variants: one with disc brakes at both ends with single-channel ABS, which was spotted testing two months ago, and a base variant, spotted yesterday, that features a drum brake at the rear.

Platform Engineering

No amount of camouflage can hide the fact that the design of this bike is based on the same platform as the new gen of Pulsars, the N250 and N160. Right from the tank extensions to the butterfly-shaped LED taillight and the split seat, everything is the same as its bigger siblings.

The chassis and underpinnings too are expected to be carried over from the Pulsar N160 (at least for the dual disc version), helping Bajaj cut down significantly on developmental costs and thereby allowing competitive pricing. 

The upcoming Bajaj Pulsar 150 gets all-new alloy wheels too which could be common across the small-capacity Pulsar lineup in the future. While the Pulsar 250 twins, N160, RS200 and NS series use the same alloy wheels, the Indian bike maker is now testing new and seemingly lighter wheels.

Frugal Engine

Also, the 2022 Pulsar N150 will most likely be powered by a Pulsar N160-derived, single-cylinder engine. The engine powering the N160 is comparatively more frugal than the one powering the current Pulsar 150. Hence expect the new engine to be even more frugal and tractable. That being said, we do not expect significant changes in terms of output figures when compared to the current mill that produces 14PS and 13.25Nm.

Features

The current-gen Pulsar 150’s iconic fascia has undergone the knife for a minor cosmetic surgery. While it still retains the ‘wolf eyes’ pilot lights, it gets a new projector headlight. The turn indicators too are now positioned slightly higher and continue using halogen bulbs. 

The test mule also sported a semi-digital instrument console borrowed from the Pulsar F250, N250 and N160. So, even though it will miss out on Bluetooth connectivity, this new display has more information than what’s on offer in the current model. Expect the bike to also offer USB charging, similar to the N160.

Price

The 2022 Bajaj Pulsar N150 is likely to launch in September 2022 with an expected price tag ranging from Rs 1.07 lakh to Rs 1.10 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi). Once launched, it will go up against the likes of Yamaha FZ-Fi Version 3.0, Honda Unicorn and the TVS Apache RTR 160.
