Hyderabad : Bajaj Auto, the world’s most valuable two-wheeler and three-wheeler company, has launched the all-new Pulsar P150 in India. This highly agile and manoeuvrable bike comes with a modern, sporty design that complements its powerful and refined 150cc engine giving riders a great-to-look-at, great-to-ride machine. After the 250cc (N250 and F250) and 160cc (N160) versions, this is Pulsar’s third offering on the all-new platform that was launched in October 2021.
The new Pulsar P150 has been engineered to significantly enhance the signature ‘Pulsar rush’ due to improved power delivery, sportier design and reduced weight. In this new avatar, the P150 uses all the enhancements of the new Pulsar platform to inspire a new generation of Pulsar riders by amping up all the things Pulsar is famous for.
The new design language makes the Pulsar P150 sportier, sharper and lighter. It has a new aerodynamic 3D front that embodies sculptural purity and sports a dynamic interplay of metalised, dual colours. The single-disc variant allows a more upright stance, while the twin-disc variant has a sportier stance and comes with a split seat.
A dynamic tank profile is contrasted with a thin waistline that extends to a contoured seat profile. Along with a 790mm seat height, the proportions are made for ridercomfort. With a new mono-shock rear suspension, and an underbelly exhaust positioned near the bike’s centre of gravity, the design ensures better balance and handling – making it one of the most manoeuvrable bikes in its class.
Along with these significant upgrades, there is a 10-kg reduction in weight (for the twin-disc variant),which means an 11% increase in the power-to-weight ratio, thus enhancing the sporty creds of the bike even further.
The Pulsar P150 is powered by a new 149.68cc engine, which gives best-in-classpower and instantaneous throttle response. It delivers a peak power of 14.5 Ps @ 8500 RPM and a maximum torque of 13.5 Nm @ 6000 RPM. Most importantly, 90% of the torque is available across the usable RPM range,allowing the motorcycle to deliver the signature ‘Pulsar rush’ and be the first off the block in every situation.Add to that a superiorgear shift and a damper for better NVH management, and you have the most refined Pulsar 150to date that glides through the city streets with consummate ease.
Speaking on the occasion, Rakesh Sharma, Executive Director – Bajaj Auto Ltd., said, “Two decades ago, Pulsar 150 created the genre of sports sporty street motorcycling. With the launch ofthe all-new Pulsar P150, we have again raised the performance bar! The P150s are a great addition to the new Pulsar platform, which has already seen the launch of the 250s and the dual-channel-ABS-fitted N160. Engineering and design excellence combined with an intimate knowledge of the customer have shaped the Pulsar P150, which is sure to delight its vast customer base!”
