Bajaj Pulsar 180 Highlights
The Bajaj Pulsar 180 ABS has started arriving at dealerships across the country. The bike gets a single-channel ABS unit that is paired with a rear-wheel lift mitigation (RLM) system. Bajaj is expected to price the Pulsar 180 ABS at a premium of around Rs 8000 to Rs 10,000 over the non-ABS variant. The Pulsar 180 ABS is expected to debut in February 2019 and will go head-to-head with the TVS Apache RTR 180 ABS. When launched, the Pulsar 180 ABS will be the latest Bajaj product to comply with upcoming safety regulations that mandate ABS for two-wheelers above 125cc. Apart from the addition of ABS, the rest of the bike’s mechanicals are expected to remain the same.
The Bajaj Pulsar 180 is one of the homegrown manufacturer’s longest selling models. The motorcycle is essentially a slightly more powerful alternative to the brand’s most popular motorcycle, the Pulsar 150. The design of the Pulsar 180 isn’t too different from the 150, which gives the bike a sense of familiarity. This is something its target audience appreciate, and is one of the reasons why the motorcycle has remained more or less the same over the years. Powering the bike is a 178.6cc, single-cylinder, air-cooled engine which produces 17.02PS at 8500rpm and 14.22Nm at 6500rpm. The engine is mated to a 5-speed transmission. Suspension bits include telescopic front forks and twin Nitrox shock absorbers at the rear. Bringing this motorcycle to a halt are 260mm front and 230mm rear disc brakes. Bajaj doesn’t offer ABS even as an option as of yet. Expect Bajaj to launch the bike with at least a single-channel ABS once new safety norms kick in from April 2019 onwards. The Bajaj Pulsar 180 competes with TVS Apache RTR 180 in the Indian two-wheeler market.

Bajaj Pulsar 180 Expert Review
Bajaj Pulsar 180 is an ideal companion for the buyers seeking premium commuter in the competitive Indian two-wheeler market. It is India’s first sports bike that attracted numerous bookings from its onset. The bike is now introduced with cosmetic as well as technology upgrades. It is on offer with a new and a better environment-friendly BS-IV compliant engine which produces blistering performance numbers of 17.02PS and 14.22Nm of torque. The bike comes with improved and intelligent electronics that guarantee a smoother power delivery and strong throttle response. Despite the enhanced performance, the company claims it to yield an unaffected fuel economy of 45Kmpl. The newer version shares most of the elements with the younger sibling, the Pulsar 150. The notable features apart from the shared counterparts include split rear grab rail, wider tyres, rear disc option and an all-new Black Pack color scheme which makes the bike look more upmarket than ever. Some other bits include 3D logo imprint, appealing alloy wheels, domed cowl and semi-digital instrument cluster. It weighs just 1Kg more than the Pulsar 150 that makes it easily manoeuvre vehicle in the traffic-ridden city conditions and also on the straight lines. There is still no ABS and safety duties are handled by the disc brakes fitted at front and rear ends. The new Bajaj Pulsar 180 is priced at INR 81,650 (Ex-showroom, Delhi).
Design and Features
The Bajaj Pulsar 180 features an edgy design loved by millions. The large headlight fairing and the wolf-eye pilot lamps are characteristic of the DTS-i-era Pulsars. The subtle tank cowls keeps the sides busy while at the rear, the bike comes with a sleek tail section that packs an LED tail light. Split seats and split grab bars further accentuate the motorcycle’s sporty look. The ergonomics are comfortable enough for long rides as well. At 15 litres, the bike also comes with a rather large fuel tank.
The motorcycle features a semi-digital instrument cluster which shows run-of-the-mill information like speed, revs, odometer and trip meter, clock and fuel gauge.
Braking and Handling
The Bajaj Pulsar 180 employs telescopic forks at the front and twin gas-charged Nitrox shock absorbers at the rear. The latter comes with 5-step preload adjustability too. A 90-section front and a 120-section rear tubeless tyres wrap around the 17-inch alloy wheels. The motorcycle is brought to a halt by a 260mm front and a 230mm rear disc. There’s no ABS on offer, even as an option.
Safety and Features
The motorcycle makes do with disc brake on both ends, without ABS for now. Bajaj is likely to update the motorcycle with at least a single-channel ABS once new safety norms kick in next year. As per the new norms, motorcycles that pack engines displacing 125cc or more should feature ABS as standard.
