  • Currently, the base Bajaj Pulsar 150 price is Rs. 1, 05,884. The top-spec trim of this motorcycle entails the ex-showroom price of Rs. 1, 17,156. The Pulsar 150 is currently offered in three trims and nine colour options. Compared to other 150 CC mini-sport commuter bikes, the Pulsar 150 price is very reasonable. Furthermore, one also has access to several Two Wheeler Loan schemes designed specifically for this motorcycle. 
  • The Pulsar 150 is powered by a 150 CC air-cooled single-cylinder fuel-injected BS6-compliant engine. The engine offers a linear performance in terms of power and torque deliveries. The current iteration of the Pulsar 150 is the most powerful 150 CC bike in India. The peak power and outputs of the Pulsar 150 CC engine are 15 bhp and 12 Nm respectively.
  • The engine is paired with a smooth-shifting 5-speed gearbox and a light wet multiplate clutch.

The motorcycle’s rear wheel on the other hand is paired with two traditional spring-over-damper suspensions. It is noteworthy that each rear suspension is also equipped with hydraulic fluid reservoirs. These reservoirs offer additional dampening from each rear suspension unit. Furthermore, the suspension travel factors of both the rear and front suspensions have been increased as well. The increased suspension travel now allows the Bajaj Pulsar 150 to conquer bad roads seamlessly.

One should feel proud to ride a Bajaj Pulsar 150, to be honest!

The Bajaj Pulsar 150 was introduced by Bajaj Auto in India back in 2001. Before that, Indian motorcycles were dull in terms of design and performance.

That changed after 2001.

Indian motorcycle brands had to go back to their drawing boards. The goal was to make bikes that could compete with the Pulsar 150 both in terms of looks and performance. Bajaj then went ahead and added a plethora of technologies to the Pulsar 150. For instance, the Pulsar 150 was the first motorcycle to come with three spark plugs. It was also the first motorcycle in India to sport Bajaj’s patented ExhausTec technology. On top of this, the Pulsar 150 was the fastest motorcycle on Indian roads. Since the motorcycle is still offered by Bajaj, it is natural for one to feel nostalgic about the bike. This is yet another reason why the Pulsar 150 remains a best seller. Even after decades of being on the market with very minute technological and design-bases updates, the Pulsar 150 still sells well!
