All-new Bajaj Pulsar P150 launched; more power and new looks

Bajaj has launched their all-new Pulsar P150 motorcycle. It becomes a spiritual successor to the ageing Pulsar 150 which will be sold alongside. The bike gets a brand new engine and is built on the next-gen Pulsar platform.

The new Pulsar P150 gets powered by a new 149.68cc engine producing 14.3HP @ 8500rpm and 13.5 Nm @ 6000 RPM mated to a 5 speed gearbox. Additionally, Bajaj claims to have improved the shift actions and NVH to provide a smoother ride. A new monoshock rear suspension is on offer as is the underbelly exhaust positioned close to the bike’s centre of gravity. For better rider comfort, Bajaj has also provided a 790mm seat height as well as a thinner waistline.

In terms of convenience features, the P150 gets a semi-digital “infinity” instrument cluster borrowed from the Pulsar N160. A new LED projector headlamp and USB charging port is on offer as well. Bajaj has also incorporated a distance-to-empty readout and gear shift indicator in the instrument cluster.

The P150 is available in two trims- single disc and dual disc both of which get single channel ABS as standard. Additionally, the dual disc variant also gets twin disc brakes, split seat, wider tyres and clip-on handlebars while the single-disc variant receives a rear drum brake, single seat, narrower tyres and fixed handlebars. Both variants will be available with a choice of 5 colours- Racing
Red, Caribbean Blue, Ebony Black Red, Ebony Black Blue and Ebony Black White. Pricing for the single disc variant is Rs. 1,16,755 with the dual disc priced at Rs. 1,19,757 (Ex-showroom Delhi) respectively. Competitors for the Pulsar P150 include Yamaha FZ-FI, Hero Xtreme 160R and TVS Apache RTR 160 2V.
