Similar to the rest of the Bajaj motorcycles (except the Dominar 400), the Pulsar 150 Twin Disc and Pulsar 180 will be available with single-channel ABS only. The safety net also includes a Rear Lift-off Protection (RLP).
The source report claims that the motorcycles would not feature visual upgrades. However, as seen in the previous spy images, the bikes get a mild makeover to give them a mid-life visual update before all new models arrive in 2020. Updated styling cues on both motorcycles include revised graphics and a new engine cowl – similar to the unit seen on the Pulsar 220 ABS –that adds a sportier look to the overall package.
The Bajaj Pulsar 150 Twin Disc ABS continues to use 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 Bajaj Pulsar 180 uses a 178.6cc single-cylinder, air-cooled engine that develops 17.02 PS of maximum power at 8,500 rpm and 14.22 Nm of peak torque at 6,500 rpm. Both motors come paired with a five-speed gearbox.

Bajaj Auto has extended its product portfolio in 2019 by introducing a semi-faired version of the Pulsar 180. Christened as the Pulsar 180F, the motorcycle draws from the Pulsar 220F and comes equipped with a semi-fairing deign, vertically stacked headlight and new colour schemes. Surprisingly, the first impressions video of the Pulsar 180F from YouTube revealed that the motorcycle was not equipped with ABS.
