Bajaj Auto has given a small styling upgrade to the Pulsar 150 Neon. The base variant of the Pulsar 150 family gets fuel tank extensions – a feature that was already available on the premium versions of the Pulsar 150 range. The addition of the fuel tank extension could be an exercise to distinguish the 150 cc model from the newly launched Pulsar 125 Neon. Rest of the design details and colour options remain unaltered. The Pulsar 150 Neon is available in three colour options – Neon Red, Neon Silver and Neon Lime Green.
Other styling features include neon paint for Pulsar badge on the tank, grille on the side panel, the "150" logo on the rear panel, pillion grab rail, tank pad and tank stripes. Matching highlights are also visible above the headlight. The budget-friendly hardware includes single-piece saddle, conventional telescopic front forks, preload-adjustable twin rear springs and a drum brake on the rear wheel. The anchoring power to the front is offered by a disc brake. The safety net on the motorcycle includes a single-channel ABS.
The company had previously revised the price of the Pulsar 150 Neon to increase the gap between the 150 cc model and the Pulsar 125. The Pulsar 150 Neon, which was sold for INR 71,200* before the price increase, is available at INR 75,200*. In comparison, the entry-level variant of the Pulsar 125 is available at INR 64,000*, while the front disc brake version retails at INR 66,618*.
In other updates, the Pulsar 125 has delivered promising sales performance. Bajaj Auto has registered over 40,000 unit sales of the new 125 cc Pulsar model since its launch in August 2019. Part of the reason behind the promising sales numbers is the aggressive price tag. The drum brake variant of the Pulsar 125 is INR 1,020 cheaper than the entry-level Honda CB Shine. The disc brake version of the Pulsar 125 is INR 2,320 cheaper than the 125 cc Honda commuter.
Another reason behind the high sales number could be the bigger Pulsar range inspired styling and best in class power output number. The muscular styling is complemented by the 124.4 cc single-cylinder, air-cooled, 2-valve engine that pumps out 12 PS of peak power at 8,500 rpm and 11 Nm of max torque at 6,500 rpm.
