Bajaj Pulsar P150 Launched

After endless spy shots and even a mysterious ‘Block Your Date’ invite, Bajaj has finally launched the latest entrant in the Pulsar family; the P150. Here’s how much more it costs over the Pulsar 150.

Bajaj Pulsar P150 Front

What’s evident instantly is its fresh face. While the silhouette is unmistakably a Pulsar, it’s definitely a lot more modern than the Pulsar 150. The N160-inspired bi-functional LED projector headlamp gives it a menacing and aggressive look.

Bajaj Pulsar P150 Engine

Powering it is an all-new 149.68cc mill making 14.5PS and 13.5Nm, mated to a five-speed transmission. That makes it 0.5PS and 0.25Nm more than the Pulsar 150. Bajaj also says it’s got “...a damper for better NVH (Noise Vibration and Harshness) management”, ensuring a riding experience with minimal vibrations. The underbelly exhaust aids in mass-centralisation too.

Suspension duties are taken care of by a 31mm telescopic fork along with a monoshock. The single disc variant will give you a 130mm drum brake at the rear, while there’s a 230mm rear disc in the twin disc variant. Its front brake, meanwhile, remains a 260mm disc along with single channel ABS for both variants. The former also comes with a 80/100-17 (F) and 100/90-17 (R) setup, while the latter gets a 90/90-17 (F) and 110/80-17 (R) setup.

Bajaj Pulsar P150 Single Disc And Twin Disc Variants Compared

Other differences in the two variants are in the form of the seat and handlebar. The single disc variant gets a single-piece seat and a tubular handlebar while the twin disc variant gets a split seat setup along with sportier, raised clip-on handlebars. The pillion grab rail is of split type in the twin disc variant.  

In terms of features, the P150 gets the semi-digital cluster we’ve previously seen on the N250 and F250. It gets a gear position indicator, clock, distance-to-empty indicator. Adding to its practical bits is a USB charger, 790mm seat height, 165mm ground clearance, 14-litre fuel tank as well as a 140kg kerb weight, which is a solid 10kg lighter than the Pulsar 150 (twin disc variants compared). 

Bajaj Pulsar P150 At Rs 1,16,755 (ex-showroom Delhi) onwards, the bike is a fair bit more expensive than what we thought it’d be. But it’s still on par with its primary competitors, the TVS Apache RTR 160 (Rs 1,17,790 ex-showroom Delhi onwards) and the Yamaha FZ (Rs 1,13,700 ex-showroom Delhi). While it is a complete overhaul over its predecessor, in terms of looks and features, it's only Rs 3,097 less expensive than the single-channel ABS variant of the sportier Pulsar N160, causing it to lose some of its value-for-money quotient. Available in five colours for both variants, the P150 has been launched in Kolkata today and will be rolled out all over the country in the coming weeks.
