The Bajaj Pulsar 150 is the highest selling 150cc commuter bike in India. Despite it being long in the tooth, the combination of muscular style, good fuel efficiency and value for money makes it an extremely popular motorcycle in the two-wheeler market.

In order to add spice to the recipe, the company has introduced the Neon series wherein the motorcycle adorns a matte metallic grey colour scheme with contrasting neon orange or yellow highlights. However, the Neon model loses out on tank extensions and engine belly. Besides that, the motorcycle continues to feature a split seat design, sporty decals for the single and twin-disc models.

The Pulsar 150 is suspended by telescopic front forks up front and dual springs with adjustable preload at the rear. The braking setup consists of a disc brake at the front as standard and the choice of a drum or a disc brake at the rear. All variants of the Pulsar 150 feature a single-channel ABS system as standard fitment.
The motorcycle is offered in six paint schemes – black-grey and black-red for the single-disc model, black-blue and the same black-red for the twin disc model and neon red, neon yellow and neon silver for the new Neon series.
