A refreshed version of the Bajaj Pulsar 150 has been spotted. The new design is similar to the current generation Pulsar 180.
The facelifted Bajaj Pulsar 150 features red accents on the Blue-Black bodywork. The sticker job is akin to the Pulsar 150 Black Pack edition. The front fender comes with a sticker that reads ‘Twin Disc’. As expected, the bike features disc brake on both ends. The seats are of split type instead of the single-piece unit in the current gen bike. The matte black exhaust comes with a heat shield that has an aluminium finish. The bike misses out on kick start lever, just like the current Pulsar 180. The bike also does away with the tyre hugger at the rear, for a sportier look.
Expect the same engine to be carried over into the new bike. The 149 cc DTS-i engine is likely to witness a minor bump in output. Currently, it generates 14 PS at 8,000 rpm, and 13.4 Nm of torque at 6,000 rpm. The engine works in conjunction with a 5-speed transmission.
The facelifted bike continues with the telescopic front fork and twin Nitrox rear setup. There is no ABS yet. Coming to the launch date, expect Bajaj to make an official announcement in the coming weeks. Competition for the new Bajaj Pulsar 150 would include TVS Apache RTR 160, Suzuki Gixxer, and the newly-launched Honda X-Blade.
