The Bajaj Pulsar 150 is a popular bike and one of the first examples to give the Indian audience a thrilling riding experience. Having been around for a huge number of years, the Pulsar 150 has received its fair share of updates and facelifts which have kept this rather old model from dying. In its latest avatar, the bike employees a grunty 150 cc air-cooled engine and a disc brake up front. Bajaj will very soon offer this motorcycle with ABS in the Indian market space.
Measuring 2,055 mm in length, 755 mm in width and standing 1,060 mm tall, the Pulsar 150 is a neat looking machine. The design is very subtle and the 2 tone colour schemes available with the bike highlight the sporty character of the machine. The front end is dominated by a rather large headlight cluster which comprises the main headlamp and two small auxiliary lights placed in the upper corners. The lights are conventionally lit in this model and are equipped with the AHO feature. The side profile is highlighted by a rather neatly done chrome garnishing on the exhaust end pipe which also adds a premium touch to the motorcycle. The tail light is the most eye-catching detail present at the rear side of this motorcycle.
The Bajaj Pulsar 150 comes with quite a few handy features. The rider gets a semi-digital display with an analogue rev counter indicating the right time to shift gears. The digital display also holds a clock, trip meters and a digital fuel gauge. While the headlamp is conventionally lit, the rear end gets LED lighting, which looks rather nice. Also included in the package is a pass light, twin pilot lamps, and a low fuel indicator.
Safety has always been a high priority for Bajaj, this is why the Bajaj comes equipped with class par safety aids. Up front is a 240 mm disc brake which provides enough bite for efficient braking. The digital console happens to be backlit, allowing the rider to see the speed and other information during all times, be it day or night. The 12 V, full DC headlamps ensures that there always is a beam of light, lighting up the road in front of the rider at all times. Moreover, the beefed up frame with a long, 1,320 mm wheelbase and the tubeless tyres further add strength and stability.
In terms of performance, when compared to the other bikes in its class, the Bajaj Pulsar 150 uses a 149 cc, air cooled engine. With patented technologies like DTS-i and ExhausTEC, the Pulsar 150's engine generates 14 PS at 8,000 rpm and 13.4 Nm at 6,000 rpm. The power is sent to the rear wheel via a 5-speed gearbox, aided by a multi-plate, wet clutch. Power feels abundant and there is a good amount of torque available across the rev range. While the engine is good for moving around in the city, it does feel like it could do with more power once you ride on an open stretch of road.
The 149 cc, air cooled, DTS-i engine on the Bajaj Pulsar 150 can return anything between 40 - 50 km/l
With its slightly sporty but upright seating position, smooth suspension and contoured seat, the Pulsar 150 ensures that the rider sits comfortably while in command of the motorcycle. The 17-inch alloy wheels rest on telescopic front forks which come with anti-friction bushes. The rear, nitrox twin shock absorbers come with 5 levels of adjustment which make the Pulsar 150 a comfortable machine even for our kind of road conditions.
