Bajaj has launched the Pulsar 150 updated with the Bharat Stage 6 norms. Bajaj Pulsar 150 has now been made available in a single disc brake variant as well as a twin disc brake variant. The updated Pulsar 150 comes equipped with a Fuel Injection (FI) system which has been designed by the state-of-art R&D centre at Bajaj Auto along. This FI system ensures seamless power delivery, feather-touch start, and optimum fuel efficiency. Most importantly, Bajaj Auto states that the FI system is easy to maintain, ensuring that the transition to the new technology is seamless.
The Pulsar 150 BS6 version with front disc brake is priced at ₹ 94,956 (Ex-showroom, Delhi), and the twin disc variant is priced at ₹ 98,835 (Ex-showroom, Delhi). The BS6 variant of the Pulsar 150 is ₹ 8,998 more expensive than the BS4 model. The Bajaj Pulsar 150 is the highest-selling 150 cc motorcycle in India, and Bajaj also offers a Pulsar 150 Neon. The Pulsar 150 will be available in 2 colours: Black Chrome and Black Red. Both variants will be available at Bajaj dealerships starting February 12th, 2020.
Commenting on this new introduction, Mr Sarang Kanade, President – Bajaj Motorcycles, said, “The introduction of these models continues the transition of our products to BS6 norms. Bajaj Auto has scaled up the range of BS6 compliant vehicles. You will see this range expand over the next few weeks. With the BS6 compliant Pulsar 150, we have ensured that it continues to deliver excellent performance while meeting the stringent BS6 standards.”
The Pulsar 150 continues to be powered by the same 149.5 cc, single-cylinder, four-stroke, two-valve, single overhead cam (SOHC) engine, but the state of the tune has changed with the addition of fuel injection. While the BS6 variant has the same 13.8 bhp maximum power output, it’s now achieved higher in the rev range, with the motor spinning to 8,500 rpm from 8,000 rpm. Peak torque has fallen marginally, from 13.4 Nm to 13.25 Nm, and is achieved at 500 rpm higher, at 6,500 rpm. Kerb weight has also gone up by 5 kg to 148 kg.
