The BS-VI compliant Bajaj Pulsar 150 Twin Disc has been revealed completely by YouTuber Dinos Vault. The new motorcycle is visually almost the same as the outgoing BS-IV variant, save for the extra catalytic converter, the oxygen sensor and the fuel injection system replacing the carburettor.
The BS-VI Bajaj Pulsar 150 Twin Disc features the same decals as the BS-IV version. The instrumentation console is the same mix of digital and analogue display, with the tachometer continuing to be the latter. However, unlike on the old Pulsar 150 Twin Disc, the display comes with an engine warning light on the new Pulsar 150 Twin Disc.
The engine is the same 149.5 cc single-cylinder, air-cooled twin-spark DTS-i engine. Coupled to a 5-speed transmission, it produces 14 PS of power at 8,000 rpm and 13.4 Nm at 6,000 rpm in BS-IV tune. We expect the BS-VI version to have slightly lower outputs. The suspension system will be an unchanged 37 unit conventional telescopic fork at the front and twin gas-charged springs at the rear.
Braking duties are administered by a 260 mm disc at the front and a 230 mm unit at the rear. Like the BS-IV motorcycle, the BS-VI model is expected to have a single-channel ABS unit. Similarly, the headlamp will be a halogen unit. Other features will include split seats and a clip-on style handlebar. The Bajaj Pulsar 150 Twin Disc’s BS-VI fuel-injected powertrain will also be shared with the Pulsar 150 (front disc only) and Pulsar 150 Neon.
