The upcoming Bajaj Pulsar 150 has been fully revealed in a new video. The bike doesn’t get many changes and even its BS-III engine will continue. This is a bit of a disappointment as we were all expecting the Pulsar 150NS to launch this time around.
In terms of design, the bike remains similar to the outgoing model. It however gets similar colour and stickers of the 2017 Pulsar 180 and 220F, which were all revealed earlier. Its instrument culture retains amber backlit instead of blue.
The Bajaj Pulsar 150 2017 is reported to come with the same BS-III compliant, 150cc engine that produces 15.06 PS of maximum power at 9,000 rpm and 12.5 Nm of peak torque at 6,500 rpm. With BS-IV emission norms will take effect from April next year, the engine is unlikely to stick around for long. It is however claimed to be smoother and more refined.
Other changes include tubeless MRF tyres, lighter clutch and textured seat.
Bajaj is heard to be readying up 150NS model as well and this may be their reason for not bringing out a BS-IV variant. It is widely reported to replace the Pulsar 150 next year but the manufacturer is more likely to retain both models.
Bajaj had recently teased their new line-up of Pulsar bikes, including the Pulsar 135, 150, 180 and 220F. Launch is expected in December which is also when their Dominar 400 will make debut.
