HYDERABAD: Bajaj Auto has launched a newer version of Pulsar P150 with a modern, sporty design and re-engineered it to deliver superior performance and manoeuvrability.

After the 250cc (N250 and F250) and 160cc (N160) versions, this is Pulsar’s third offering on the all-new platform that was launched in October 2021.

The new design includes a new aerodynamic 3D front that sports a dynamic interplay of metalised, dual colours. The single-disc variant allows a more upright stance, while the twin-disc variant has a sportier stance and comes with a split seat. With a new mono-shock rear suspension, and an underbelly exhaust positioned near the bike’s centre of gravity, the design ensures better balance and handling.

Along with these upgrades, there is a 10-kg reduction in weight (for the twin-disc variant), which means a 11 per cent increase in the power-to-weight ratio, thus enhancing the sporty creds of the bike even further.

Pulsar P150 is powered by a new 149.68cc engine, which gives best-in-class power and instantaneous throttle response. It delivers a peak power of 14.5 Ps @ 8500 RPM and a maximum torque of 13.5 Nm @ 6000 RPM. Most importantly, 90 per cent of the torque is available across the usable RPM range. It also has a superior gear shift and a damper for better NVH management.

Speaking on the occasion, Rakesh Sharma, executive director of Bajaj Auto Ltd., said “Two decades ago, Pulsar 150 created the genre of sporty street motorcycling. With the launch of the all-new Pulsar P150, we have again raised the performance bar. The P150s are a great addition to the new Pulsar platform, which has already seen the launch of the 250s and the dual-channel-ABS-fitted N160. Engineering and design excellence combined with an intimate knowledge of the customer have shaped  Pulsar P150, which is sure to delight its vast customer base.”

Pulsar P150 is priced at Rs. 1,19,757 (ex-showroom Delhi) and Rs. 1,19,565 (ex-showroom Kolkata) for twin-disc variant and Rs. 1,16,755 (ex-showroom New Delhi) and Rs. 1,16,563 (ex-showroom Kolkata) for single-disc variant.

It is available in five colours for both variants – Racing Red, Caribbean Blue, Ebony Black Red, Ebony Black Blue and Ebony Black White.

The motorcycle was launched in Kolkata on November 22 and will be rolled out across the country in the coming weeks.
