Written by Parichay Malvankar

Bajaj Pulsar P150 is a street bike at a starting price of Rs. 1,19,757 in India (ex-showroom). The bike is offered in 2 variants and has ten colour options. The bike comes with a 149.69cc single-cylinder engine. It develops 14.29 BHP of peak power and a maximum power of 13.5 Nm. The bike gets front disc and rear drum brakes as standard and anti-lock braking as well. The bike weighs 140 kg (kerb weight) with a tank capacity of 14 litres.

In terms of competition, it will head against the likes of the Yamaha FZ-Fi.

As far as design is concerned, the bike is inspired by the larger Pulsar N250. It gets a single-pod headlamp with LED daytime running light. Also present at the front are a tinted visor, tank shroud, a single-unit seat and a flat handlebar.

The higher-end version gets dual disc brakes, disc brakes on both wheels, a split-style seat, a clip-on-style handlebar, and a split-style pillion grab rail.

Telescopic front forks and a preload-adjustable rear mono-shock handle suspension duties. The single-disc version gets a 260 mm disc at the front and a 130mm drum at the back, while the twin-disc version gets a 260mm front rotor and a 230mm rear disc.

Bajaj has given the new 149.68cc engine for the new Pulsar P150. It delivers a maximum power of 14.5 PS @ 8500 rpm and a peak torque of 13.5 Nm @ 6,000 rpm. Almost 90% of the torque is available at the usable rpm range. This will make it that much easier to ride and offer a good performance as well. The gearshift and a dampener have been tweaked for better NVH levels, making the Pulsar P150 the most refined Pulsar 150 till date.

Bajaj is offering five colours with the bike. These include the Racing Red, Caribbean Blue, Ebony Black Red, Ebony Black Blue, and Ebony Black White. All these versions get colour co-ordinated front fender, headlight mask, engine cowl and rim stripe.
