About Pulsar 180

The Bajaj Pulsar 180 is one-half of the Pune-based automaker’s best-seller duo for the last 10 years and has changed Bajaj’s fortunes since its debut. Launched in November 2001, the Bajaj Pulsar and its smaller twin were a revelation to the Indian market which until that time had been populated with commuter motorcycles and the single player called the Hero Honda CBZ in the 150cc and above segment. Its advanced styling and many modern features further fuelled the demand for premium commuters and set the bike on a course for the history books.

The Bajaj Pulsar’s first appearance included a dome headlight, aircraft type fuel tank lid, full analogue console with side-stand indicators and optional button start. The current avatar includes the famous domed cowl, side scoops, 3D logos, alloy wheels and a digital console with analogue tachometer.

The engine is a 178cc unit that produces 17bhp and 14Nm of torque. Power is sent to the rear wheel via a five-speed gearbox. Standard features include twin spark ignition, gas-charged rear suspension and a disc brake for the rear wheel. ABS is now an option worth Rs 7500, ex-showroom. The Bajaj Pulsar 180 competes with TVS Apache RTR 180 and the Yamaha FZ-S V 3.0.
