Bajaj Pulsar 150 Classic launched in India; Cheaper than 2018 Pulsar 150

Bajaj Auto has just launched a new, cut price variant of the Pulsar 150. The new motorcycle is priced at Rs. 67,437, ex-showroom, Mumbai. The bike skips a few features that’s available on the 2018 Pulsar 150, allowing Bajaj to price it lower than the regular model. Talking of the features skipped on the Pulsar 150 Classic, the motorcycle skips graphics, a rear disc brake, a split-seat and tank extension. Bajaj is yet to offer ABS on the Pulsar 150, which means even the Pulsar 150 Classic doesn’t get this feature yet. At least single channel ABS will be offered on the Pulsar 150 Classic from April 2019.

Notably, the Pulsar 150 Classic will be sold in a single, black colour. Like the 2018 Pulsar 150, the Classic variant will get blacked out parts such as the crankcase, front forks, chain guard and even the alloy wheels. The motorcycle has already been spotted at Bajaj dealerships, and is already on sale. Bajaj Auto is expected to make an official announcement about the same in the next few weeks. Mechanically, the bike is similar to the regular Pulsar 150. It’s  powered by a 150cc, four stroke single cylinder engine. The air cooled, carbureted engine produces 14 Bhp of peak power at 8,000 rpm and 13.4 Nm of peak torque at 6,000 rpm.

A five speed manual gearbox is standard. Like all other Pulsars sold in India, the latest version gets multiple spark plugs for ignition, in this case a twin spark plug head. There’s a disc brake on the front wheel while the rear wheel gets a drum brake. Both wheels are shod with tubeless tyres. As for suspension, the Pulsar 150 Classic uses telescopic front forks and gas charged twin rear shock absorbers. The motorcycle is aimed at reducing the entry point of the Pulsar 150, making it attractive to more buyers. It’s one of the least expensive 150cc, premium motorcycles sold in India.
