We check out just what the differences are between the two variants of the newly launched Pulsar P150

Bajaj Pulsar P150 Variants Compared

Bajaj recently launched the replacement for the venerable Pulsar 150 in the form of the new Pulsar P150. The bike borrows a lot of its design cues from its elder sibling the Pulsar N160, but actually sports a brand new chassis and is technically the first “all-new” Pulsar 150 launched since the original back in 2002. Just like its predecessor, the new P150 is available in two variants - Twin Disc (TD) and Single Disc (SD). But their differences run a lot deeper than just their braking setups.

Of course, the most obvious difference between the two variants in their braking setup. Both of them get a 260mm disc at the front, but the Twin Disc features a 230mm disc at the rear, while the Single Disc gets a 130mm drum at the back. In terms of braking safety, both bikes only come with single-channel ABS.

The two bikes also get different tyre sizes, with the Twin Disc running slightly fatter rubber at both ends - 90/90-17 front and 110/80-17 rear. The Single Disc gets slightly skinnier tyres - 80/100-17 front and 100/90-17 rear.

Even the seats on the two bikes are different. The SD gets a long single-piece seat, while the TD gets a sportier split-seat setup. The seat cushioning on the TD’s split seats is also a little firmer compared to the SD’s single seat.

Moving to the back of the seat, the pillion on the TD gets funky looking split grab rails and the SD gets a single-piece grab rail. Both are quite easy for the pillion to hold though.

The TD also features split clip-on handlebars that are set lower and angled more downward and inward compared to the SD’s single-piece handlebar, which is straighter and more upright.

The TD’s rider footpegs are also set about three-four inches further back and about an inch higher compared to the footpegs of the SD variant. Even the pillion footpegs on the two variants are positioned differently to correspond to the slightly different pillion seating positions both the variants offer.

The Pulsar P150 Single Disc variant is priced at Rs 1,16,755, while the Twin Disc variant comes in at Rs 1,19,757. So basically for Rs 3,002, not only do you get a rear disc on the P150, but you also get a much sportier riding position - great for younger riders looking for their first sport bike. But if you’re looking for a more commuter-friendly option, the P150 Single Disc would be the right choice for you.
