BSVI Bajaj Pulsar 150 launched in India for Rs 94,956
The BSVI compliant Bajaj Pulsar 150 has been launched in India and the prices for the lower trim, disc and drum brake variant is priced at Rs 94,956 ex-showroom. Meanwhile, the twin-disc variant is priced at Rs 98,835. Both the variants have seen a price hike of Rs 9,000 over the BSIV model.
The motorcycle cosmetically remains unchanged but has seen a few changes on the mechanical front. The Pulsar 150 still uses the same 149.5cc engine as its predecessor but now uses an electronic fuel injection for fuelling as opposed to a carburettor. The power output remains the same at 14PS, but peak power is achieved at 8,500rpm as opposed to 8,000rpm in the BSIV carburetted model. The torque figure is down to 13.25Nm from 13.4Nm and also peaks 500rpm later in the rev range - at 6,500rpm. The changes made to comply with the motorcycle to the upcoming BSVI norms has increased the kerb weight by 4kgs and the motorcycle now tips the scale at 148kg.
The cycle parts such as telescopic suspensions (front) and gas-charged rear shock absorbers have been carried forward as well as the brake set-up. The lower variant gets a 260mm rotor in the front with a 130mm drum brake. The higher twin-disc variant gets a 230mm rotor in the rear in replacement of a drum brake set-up.
