After the Bajaj Pulsar 220 and the Pulsar 180, it is the Pulsar 150 Twin Disc that has been spotted with ABS at a dealership warehouse. The Pulsar 150 ABS Twin Disc, similar to its siblings, features a single-channel ABS to keep the costs low and prices competitive. The standard model, without ABS, retails for INR 80,794 (ex-showroom Delhi). Expect the ABS-equipped model to carry a price tag of circa INR 90,000.

Apart from the single-channel ABS, the 2019 Bajaj Pulsar 150 Twin Disc will also feature a rear lift-off protection as standard to avoid the back wheel from lifting up during heavy braking. The braking setup will be identical to the non-ABS model, and the variant will continue employing a 260 mm disc at the front and a 230 mm unit at the rear. The motorcycle, similar to others in the 2019 model range, will receive an engine cowl for a sporty look to the overall package.
The motorcycle will retain the colour options from the existing range. The ABS-equipped model will continue with the current technical specifications as the standard variant. Thus, propelling tasks would be performed by a 149cc, 4 Stroke, 2-valve, twin spark, air-cooled, DTS-i engine that delivers 14 PS of maximum power at 8,000 rpm and 13.4 Nm of peak torque at 6,000 rpm. The engine comes paired with a five-speed gearbox.
The Bajaj Pulsar 150 ABS Twin Disc will continue featuring conventional telescopic fork at the front and gas charged twin shock absorbers at the rear. The 17-inch alloy wheels would come wrapped in 90/90-17 front and 120/80-17 rear tubeless tyres.
Bajaj Auto is yet to put out the prices of its ABS-equipped model range, but we expect to hear an announcement in the coming weeks.

Meanwhile, there are no updates or spy images of the ABS-equipped variant of the Bajaj Pulsar 150 Classic – the rear drum variant, and currently, the most affordable Pulsar branded motorcycle in the country. The bike will come with a single-channel ABS. Do note that Bajaj launched the Neon Collection of the Pulsar 150 Classic in November 2018 at INR 64,998 (ex-showroom Delhi) without the safety net of ABS.
