The ABS equipped Pulsar 150 Twin Disc and Pulsar 180 ABS have been launched priced at Rs 87,226 and Rs 92,563 respectively, media reports suggest. As reported earlier, the company had already started dispatching the bikes at dealerships around a month ago. In tandem with all the motorcycles in Bajaj’s portfolio, save for the Dominar 400, the Pulsar 150 Twin Disc and Pulsar 180 will be offered with single-channel ABS only. In addition, there could be a Rear Lift-off Protection (RLP).
According to reports, both the bikes will remain unchanged aesthetically, implying no styling updates. Nevertheless, the spy images of the bikes hinted at subtle cosmetic changes as a part of the mid-cycle update before the new-gen models hit the market in 2020. Talking of the updates, the bikes get tweaked graphics and a new engine cowl reminiscent of the one seen on Pulsar 220 ABS.
As for mechanicals, the Bajaj Pulsar 150 Twin Disc ABS retains the 149cc, 4 Stroke, 2 valv, twin spark, air-cooled DTS-I engine that puts out top power of 14 bhp at 8,000 rpm against peak torque of 6,000 rpm. On the other hand, the Bajaj Pulsar 180 gets a 178.6cc single-cylinder, air-cooled unit good for 17.02 bhp at 8,500 rpm along with 14.22 Nm torque at 6,500 rpm. Both the engines get a five-speed gearbox set-up.
Bajaj recently added the semi-faired Bajaj Pulsar 180F to its Pulsar range. Derived from the Puslar 220F, the semi-faired 180F features vertically stacked headlight and can be had in new colour options.
