Bajaj launched the Pulsar trio (150, 180 and 220) in 2008 and the Pulsar 150 is the smallest sibling in the series yet. Previously when there weren’t many options, it was one of the best stylish and sportiest bikes. Not only the styling, the performance and fuel efficiency were the key reasons behind its success.
The indigenous bike maker has added a new varant, Pulsar 150 Classic Edition, to the series. This new version has the inclusion of new colours – Black, Black with Silver accents and Black with Red accents.
The new Classic edition Pulsar 150 price starts from around Rs. 66,000 (exclusive showroom). Below are some highlighting points about the two-wheeler that will give you a brief idea about the bike.
The new Bajaj Pulsar 150 Classic Edition gets a bulb and reflector type headlamp at the front, while an LED tail lamp is present at the rear. Some red or silver accents can be seen just under the headlights. The bike also gets a new stitch design. The tank extensions and body graphics are absent in this variant. The bike rides on 17-inch alloys that are wrapped in 80 mm tubelesstyre at the front and 100 mm at the rear.
Engine and Transmission
The new Bajaj Pulsar 150 Classic Edition derives its power from a 149.5 cc, air-cooled, BSIV compliant DTS-i engine that is capable of churning out a maximum of 14 PS power along with a peak torque of 13.4 Nm. The drive is sent to the wheels via a 5-speed manual gearbox.
Braking and Suspension
As for the braking, the all-new Bajaj Pulsar 150 Classic Edition comes with a disc brake at the front wheel, while the rear has drum brakes. The front disc measures 240 mm, which makes for a good enough stopping power.
Coming to the suspension, the telescopic forks, with anti-friction brush, are given up front while at the rear, there are twin shock absorbers.
Fuel efficiency and Performance
The new Bajaj Pulsar 150 Classic Edition comes with a 15-litres fuel tank with 3.2-litre reserve fuel capacity. It offers a mileage of around 55 kmpl. The engine can return a top-speed of 110 kmph. The riders can speed up from 0-60 kmph in just 5.6 seconds.
The new Bajaj Pulsar 150 Classic Edition is expected to continue doing well in the 150cc segment. It comes with the same sporty appeal with visual treat-like graphics. Moreover, the power and fuel economy are two of its potent swords of victory.
However, despite such amazing performance over the years, it receives a tough competition from the likes of Honda CB Unicorn 150, TVS Apache RTR 160, Hero Xtreme Sports and Yamaha SZ-RR V2.0.
The all new Bajaj Pulsar 150 Classic Edition is an affordable bike that offers a great performance along with a good fuel efficiency. It is pretty stylish and is a good option for those who want a performance-based motorcycle on budget.
