Would make it four new Pulsars in three months.
Bajaj’s push to get their new Pulsar models out in the market continues, with a report on Motorbeam suggesting that up next is the Bajaj Pulsar 150NS in May. Spotted testing a few times, the 150NS will be the company’s 4th launch in the Pulsar range this year.
Set to replace the existing Pulsar 150, the 150NS will feature the same perimeter frame that made its debut with the 200NS. The frame’s debut in this segment, however, came with the launch of the Pulsar AS150. The 150NS is also set to get a major bump in power output over the outgoing 150.
The bike will get the same engine that does duty on the AS150. The 149.5 cc unit is a 4-valve twin spark DTSi engine that makes 17 PS at 9,000 rpm and 13 Nm of peak torque at 7,500 rpm on the Turkey-spec 150NS. New alloys, disc brakes at the front and drum brakes at the rear complete the picture. Bajaj has gone for a major suspension change at the rear, with the 150NS set to get a monoshock setup.
Going by images of the bike’s debut in Turkey earlier this year, the 150NS gets the same treatment for its exhaust as the 200NS.
