Bajaj has sold 1 crore units of the Pulsar motorcycle globally and to celebrate this, the company has launched the 2018 Black Pack editions of the Pulsar 150, 180 and 220. The Black Pack Edition is a visual upgrade for these motorcycles even as they remain mechanically unchanged.
There are four major cosmetic changes on all three bikes. The first change is a new premium black paint job, the second is matte grey highlights, the third change is white alloy wheels while the fourth is satin chrome-finish for the exhaust cover.
The 150cc Pulsar syarts from Rs. 76,723 ex-showroom Delhi, while the 180 and 220 models sell for Rs. 81.650 and Rs. 93,684 respectively.
Eric Vas, the president of Bajaj Auto’s motorcycle division made the following statement while launching the Black Pack edition Pulsars,
Pulsar has been India’s No.1 Sports motorcycle brand in the country since its launch in 2001. Bajaj Pulsar is sold in over 25 countries worldwide and is market leader in most of them. We are proud to have achieved the milestone of 1 crore Pulsar customers around the world. To commemorate this achievement, we present the unique Black Pack edition.
The first-generation Pulsar was launched in 2001, with two models – the 150 and 180. From then, Bajaj has continually launched new versions, and expanded the range to include 135cc, 200cc and 220cc models. Over the years, Bajaj has also refined the Pulsars and added many segment-leading features. This explains why the Pulsar brand has endured for the last decade and half, and has continued to remain popular. Bajaj also exports the Pulsar to 25 countries around the world.
Apart from the Pulsar 150, 180 and 220, Bajaj also sells the Pulsar 135 LS, and the NS200 and RS200 liquid cooled models. The Pulsar 135 LS is the entry-level Pulsar, with an air cooled engine, and prices start from Rs. 60,000. Both the NS200 and RS200 are much more pricier than the air cooled Pulsars. They are also offered with fuel injection and single-channel ABS features, stuff that is absent on the air-cooled Pulsars. The NS and RS range is also priced much higher than the air cooled models. The Pulsar NS200 is priced at Rs. 97,715 while prices of the RS200 start from Rs. 123,891.
