Bajaj Pulsar 180F BS6 Specifications
The highlight of the new Pulsar 180F BS6 is its engine. It is an upgraded 178.6 cc, SOHC, 4-valve, DTS-i engine which comes with a fuel-injection system for better throttle response, enhanced performance, and improved fuel efficiency. The revised cat-con in the exhaust system helps the Bajaj Pulsar 180F to comply with the BS6 emission norms. The single-cylinder, air-cooled mill produces 17.02 PS of maximum power at 8500 rpm and 14.52 Nm of peak torque at 6500 rpm. It is linked to a 5-speed transmission.
In comparison, the Pulsar 180F BS4's engine delivered the same amount of power, but its torque output was slightly lesser at 14.22 Nm. The transmission was the same 5-speed unit.
Bajaj Pulsar 180F BS6 Features
Bajaj Auto has implemented no visual changes in the Pulsar 180F. It continues to flaunt the quarter-fairing and vertically stacked headlight setup. This combination has indeed become outdated yet manages to attract new buyers. The bike also features a 3D ‘Pulsar’ logo on the 15-litre fuel tank, an engine cowl, split seats, semi-digital instrument cluster, and coloured highlights over the grabrail, tank and bikini fairing.
The cycle parts of the new Pulsar 180F BS6 are also familiar. Conventional telescopic forks and 5-way adjustable twin Nitrox shock absorber handle the suspension duties at the front and rear respectively. The braking setup includes a 280 mm front disc, a 230 mm rear disc and a single-channel ABS.
The new Bajaj Pulsar 180F BS6 is available in two colour options - Black/Red and Neon Orange - and competes directly with the TVS Apache RTR 180 BS6 which was launched last month at INR 1.01 lakh*.
