Bajaj Auto has launched the all-new Pulsar P150 at a starting price of Rs 1.17 lakh (ex-showroom, New Delhi) in the country. Presented in single-disc and twin-disc variants, it is available in single seat and split seat avatars respectively.
The all-new Bajaj Pulsar P150 is based on the next-gen Pulsar platform that was introduced to the Indian market in October 2021. This is Bajaj’s third product on the all-new chassis following the 250cc (N250 and F250) and 160cc (N160) versions. In terms of styling, the new bike shows off a new aerodynamic 3D front with a bi-functional LED projector headlight. While the single disc variant has a more upright stance, the double disc variant has a sportier stance thanks to the split seat it carries.
Speaking on the occasion, Rakesh Sharma, Executive Director of Bajaj Auto Ltd. said: “Two decades ago, the Pulsar 150 created the genre of sporty street motorcycle riding. With the launch of the all-new Pulsar P150, we’ve raised the bar of performance once again! The P150s are a great addition to the new Pulsar platform, on which the 250s and the dual-channel ABS-mounted N160 have already been launched.”
Bajaj Pulsar P150 is offered in five color options for both variants, namely Racing Red, Caribbean Blue, Ebony Black Red, Ebony Black Blue and Ebony Black White. The bike has a seat height of 790 mm and a thin waistline that continues into a preformed seat profile. Braking duties are aided by a 260mm disc at the front and a 230mm disc at the rear on the split-seat version, while the single-seat variant comes with a 260mm disc at the front and a drum of 130mm at the rear.
Together with these upgrades, the bike is significantly lighter at 10kg (twin-disc variant), while the power-to-weight ratio has increased by 11 percent. It also features underbelly exhaust and new monoshock rear suspension as standard. Some of the standout features of the motorcycle include Infinity Display Console, USB Mobile Charging, Gear Position Indicator, Distance to Empty readout and Single-channel ABS.
Mechanically, the Pulsar P150 is powered by a new 149.68 cc engine that delivers peak power of 14.3 hp at 8,500 rpm and peak torque of 13.5 Nm at 6,000 rpm. The bike was recently launched in Kolkata and will be rolled out across the country in the coming weeks.
