Today, Bajaj Pulsar is the most popular and best selling sportbike in India, varying from 135cc to 220cc. They have always been best performing motorcycles against their competition in the respective segments. It has now been a total of 11 years since Pulsar has been wowing the Indian roads, and we just cannot have enough of it. Starting in the year 2001 at 150cc, 13hp of maximum power, Pulsar has now reached 24.5bhp of maximum power with its flagship Rs 200 in 2015, all the while innovating pretty much suiting the Indian requirements. Bajaj has a trademark on digital twin-spark and triple-spark ignition (DTS-i) technologies. Another technology exclusive to Bajaj Auto two wheelers, which Bajaj has got patented, is ExhausTEC (Torque Expansion Chamber).
A market which was happy with fuel efficient bikes, was much assured that India was not supposed to ride any performance-oriented bike, was found dumbfound when Bajaj brought Pulsar. The first of Pulsar was launched in the month of November in 2001. This first Pulsar was a 150 cc model, which had an air-cooled, spark ignited four stroke, single cylinder, petrol, engine, with 13hp as its maximum power generated. This bike also brought disc brakes to the Indian bike market. By the year 2003, Bajaj was ready to launch the second generation of Pulsar bikes, with the radical technology developed by Bajaj, DTSi. With DTSi engines loaded, the Pulsar was more powerful and fuel efficient. Growing into the year 2007, Bajaj came out with Pulsar 220 DST-Fi, with fuel injection system, and clip-on handlebars, rear disc brake, things that were totally new to Indian bikes. In the two coming years, Bajaj launched upgraded version 4 of Pulsar 150 and 180 and version 4.5 of Pulsar 150, naked Pulsar 220S. Year 2011 seemed like the blessed year for Bajaj, models like Pulsar 135LS, 150, 180, 220F were launched in the same year. However, more than 2011, the year 2012 brought fresh blessings to Bajaj. Bajaj, in a merger with KTM, launched Pulsar 200NS. 200 cc, liquid cooled, 23.17 bhp at 9500 rpm, 8000 rpm for 18.3 Nm, triple spark, four valve single overhead camshaft (SOHC), gas charged monoshock, fuel efficiency of 58 kmpl, petal disc brake upfront, disc brake at the rear, Pulsar has sure reached a horizon.
The first look at the first of Pulsars had impressed everybody with the design that was unexpected form Bajaj in the first batch of Pulsar, the Pulsar 150. Aiming the performance segment, Pulsar 150 was loaded with what was then called “sporty” looks. And it were not just the looks that were winning hearts, the comfort factor that Pulsars came gifted with lured riders to it immediately. The stylish bikini or the wolf-eyed headlamps, increased wheelbase, shapely fuel tanks, split seats, clip on handlebars, all black body, altogether made a feast for eyes. The colors awe the on-lookers, people go on calling Pulsars with all different names like, Emperor, Road Smasher, Small Wonder. What more, this appearance came for pretty much affordable prices. Alloy wheels are a cherry on the cake.
If it is a Pulsar, it has to be powerful. Oodles of it. The term “Pulsar” comes from the combination of “pulse” and “star,” which literally comes quite true when we think of performance given by Pulsar, pulsating and shooting star! Bajaj Pulsars come with a technology that Bajaj takes pride in calling its own. The sophisticated technologies that Bajaj builts for its engines mark a new step. For example, there is DTS-i, which gives a complete combustion thus the maximum power without hampering the mileage output, thus increasing the mileage of the bike, also the emitted smoke is not as high polluting as it was earlier. Pulsar 135LS, Pulsar 150, 180, 200, 220, 220S, 200NS, all are DTS-i engines. There is this intelligent system, throttle responsive ignition control system, patented by Bajaj, which gives a bike a balance between torque and power. This yet again helps in improving fuel efficiency. Another Bajaj patented technology, ExhausTEC (TEC standing for Torque Expansion Chamber), helps in smart torque digits, also saves you from regular gear shifting since with ExhausTEC, the bikes easily carry on at higher gears and low speeds. The latest from Bajaj's stable, Pulsar 200 NS, comes with tri-spark technology.
Mileage for every variant differs as per other specs, but Bajaj takes care to give the best of all to its Pulsar range of bikes. Pulsar 220 is supposed to give 38 kmpl while riding in city traffic, while giving 47 kmpl on a highway. A 200 NS would return you a mileage of 35-43 kmpl. Pulsar 150 can give you a mileage of 56.5 kmpl on the busy roads and 65 kmpl on highways. Thus, averaging around 55 kmpl. Overall, one confidently can once claim that Bajaj brings a satisfaction to its consumers as far as mileage is considered. Also can one rest assured on the acceleration and pickup front. Variants of 135 cc, 180 cc, 200 cc and 220 cc have much more powerful engines than others, resulting in better engine performance and acceleration. Depending on engines, Bajaj Pulsars offer pretty high acceleration too, like a 135 cc Pulsar would be flying at a speed of 60 kmph in around 5.8 seconds maintaining a speed of 106.8 kmph; Pulsar 150 would take you to to 60 kmph in a mere 5.6 seconds, and would run highest at 11 kmph; Pulsar 180 cc would cross 60 kmph in 5.08 seconds and maintain its top speed at 115 kmph; Pulsar 220, DTS-i engined, is strong enough to carry you across at a speed of 60 kmph in a mere 3.7 seconds and the maximum speed being 118.7 kmph.
Superb is one word to describe braking and handling in Bajaj Pulsar bikes. Most of the Pulsars come with ventilated disc brakes at both the front and the rear, which comes as a great help during an emergency braking requirement. Bajaj Pulsar bikes are the most loved because of the comfort and safety offered. The upgraded technologies that Bajaj comes up with for all the Pulsar bikes, thus providing the easiest and most comfortable handling, and a feel of relaxation when it comes to control over the bike. When a Pulsar is running on the rough Indian roads, the advanced suspension system helps, which simply reduces the jumps and minimizes jerks that would otherwise be felt on the lower arms, thus improving the handling and giving a better sense of control on any kind of road. Another safety feature are the large disc brakes, offered both at the front and rear. This feature of large disc brakes helps you stop your ride right when you need, sudden or well planned. Alloy wheel, pretty light in weight, makes the rider feel grounded with a measurement of 90/90 X 17 at the front and 100/90 X 17 at the rear end. Pretty out of the context under the head of braking and handling, I would like to mention the placing of switches. The placement of switches are such that the rider would not feel their eyes distracted from the road while accessing these switches.

They have always been best performing motorcycles against their competition in the respective segments.
