The 2019 Bajaj Pulsar 150 Twin Disc variant has reached the dealership. IAB follower Tanmay Gupta brought the update to our notice and shares a quick walkaround of the new model from the showroom.
The most noticeable update is the addition of an underbelly panel that gives the bike a sportier look. The new panel features the same graphics that are seen on the rest of the bodywork. The new graphics are seen on the front fender, fuel tank and shrouds, and the rear panel.
This is a mid-life upgrade to the model before an all-new version is introduced in 2020. Thus, apart from the new colour theme and the underbelly panel, nothing much has changed on the Pulsar 150 Twin-Disc. The motorcycle continues to feature muscular styling that is accompanied by the standard hardware list featuring conventional telescopic forks at the front and twin-sided gas-charged springs at the rear performing the shock absorption duties. Stopping power comes from a single disc on both ends while the safety net of ABS is not available.
The existing 149.5cc, single cylinder, twin spark motor that is tuned to deliver 14 PS of maximum power and 13.4 Nm of peak torque is mated to a five-speed gearbox.
There are no prices available yet, but with the motorcycle arriving in the showroom, we expect to hear an announcement next week. Earlier this month, Bajaj launched the special edition Pulsar 150 Classic in the Indian market at an ex-showroom price tag of INR 64,998 (ex-showroom Delhi). The special edition model will be available in two colours - Red and Black, and Silver and Black.
Bajaj Auto aims to push the total Pulsar volumes to 90,000 units in Q4 of FY2018-19, and the new models are the means.
