SPY PICS: Bajaj Pulsar 150NS spotted


Bajaj Pulsar has been in the market for over 12 years. The product which was initially launched in 150cc and 180cc category witnessed several changes. But the introduction of bigger siblings like the Pulsar 220 and 200NS and a relatively smaller 135LS reduced the attention that was received by this segment.

But things are about to be changed as the company plans to introduce an upgraded version of the 150cc and 180cc Pulsar motorcycles. Motoroids readers and avid followers – Varun Kulkarni and Paxy Lal, recently spotted the 150NS, a 150cc version of Bajaj’s naked motorcycle, the 200NS.

In terms of design, the 150NS follows the 200NS’s steps. The motorcycles does look identical to the 200NS and shares a lot of the design elements from its 200cc sibling including the under belly exhaust. What’s new in the 150NS is the introduction of a rear monoshock suspension which, till now, was only seen on the 200NS in the Pulsar family. It also misses out on the split seat and gets a more conventional seat setup.

In terms of power, the 150NS is expected to receive more power that the current 150cc version. It is also likely to be quicker than the current model and lighter in weight. Reduction in weight may also witness better fuel efficiency levels. The engine may miss out on fuel injection which is not common in this segment. But, with the entry of FZ series with fuel injection, other manufacturers will have to consider it (fuel injection) as an option and we don’t expect Bajaj to stay too behind in the race.

The 150NS has been spotted many times and is likely to hit the production line soon. Although there is no official word from the company, expect to see this motorcycle in showrooms by end of this year or earlier next year.

Stay tuned into Motoroids for more updates on the Pulsar 150NS as and when they arrive.


  1. The engine looks similar to the discover 125ST/T range,(Aircooled) so we might get an engine with twin spark but 4 valves. The engine head may not have enough space for another spark plug, given the cylinder dimension of the original 150. Bore of the 200NS is actually bigger than 220 which gives enough space for so many holes (7 in total)
    It may be the same engine that might be used in the Discover 150F, but in a slightly detuned form and with the frame of 125ST (more traditional, less rigid and lighter than the perimeter frame on the NS)

  2. Good to see MRF tyres back on Pulsar….hopefully Bajaj switches back to MRF tyres in its entire Pulsar range
