    Style: looks like an arabian horse, stunning looks from any angle, of course decent too

    engine performance, fuel economy and gearbox: excellent pick-up, very smooth, no vibrations, mileage in city 40 to 45 kms/ litre which is ok to me as bike is simply a power house; gear box performance is simply amazing ( i hardly uses clutch for gear shift) after 1st gear.

    Ride quality & handling: no feel of tiredness for long drives; very good balance /excellent braking; easy to handle like a bicycle.

    Final words: i purchased the bike in 2007, i have not spent a single rupee for repairs other than regular periodic maintenance ( only engine oil change after every 2500 km & air filter cleaning which is being regularly done by myself). That's why i still feel bajaj was given more value than my money. As this is my 7th bike in 20 years, i have used almost all indian bikes and pulsar 180 dts-i is beyond my expectation from all the fronts. Finally, what else any customer can expect anything other than above...........

    Areas of improvement: nothing

    pros

    style, performance, pick-up, mileage, zero maintenance

    cons

    nothing

    Pulsar 180 was more than the 150 and matched the 220,one can beat the traffic with awesome handling and hit the flat out roads with ease,well over 100km/h. At cruising speeds over 110 the bike is still stable and trust me if you are up for a drag it will surprise you. Split seats give you comfortable seating both for rider and pillion and the best part is how the rider sits perfectly in the sweet spot. 180 had its era. A great bike

    It's an awesome bike but the only thing that i don't like about bajaj company itself is that . The bike chain not stay longer good either they will make noise or you have to send it for repair and which cost lumsum 2000 rs . So i really don't like this bike only because of it's maintenance and i was planning to buy the dominar but now no i will never buy bajaj bikes

    Baying experience is really really good and riding experience i'll say it's great for short distance riding but. For long rides your hand might start to piss off, performance is good, i was only 18 when i get this bike and i am 20 i own this bike for 2 years and i don't feel any problem on it's performance, maintenance is pocket friendly.Headlamp is the only thing which i don't like about it. And other then this. Pulsar 180 is great bike to start with

    Basically i bought this bike as it was very stylish, and heard many people praising it.I had black colour pulsar 180.It has some advantages and many disadvantages.Advantages are it looks very stylish and is a product of bajaj, so service is good.Now come the disadvantages.First of all it is very heavy to handle, secondly it has short handle cut which makes it difficult to handle.The seat is also not designed well.My pulsar did not have kick, it had only self start.So it gets difficult to start the bike when self doesn't work.

    Buying and after sell service from bajaj is excellent

    This bike can be used for log drives and daily commute as well, i have driven 600+ km in one day on this bike with no issues.

    Pulsar looks is like definitely male. And performance wise this is the best in this class.

    Maintenance is very very low, but make sure you visit the right service centre.

    The mileage is same since years.

    Pros:- heavy duty engine, powerful pickup, sexy looks.

    Cons:- nothing i can notice so far.

    Read carefully before purchase Bajaj pulsar 180 is one of the few bikes in this range which is available in the market.I used this bike for 43000 kms in pune within & out of city both and in all riding conditions (ideal as well as rough). The bike normally fetches an average of 43 kms/ltr. Technically this bike was above all when purchased in 2012 the pros are1) unmatched torque of the bike as compared to its competitors from 150-200cc engines. 2) smooth driving experience, good brakes 3) high speed i could manage 113 kms/hr (depends upon road and conditions but this speed is not recommended)4) nice looks and perfect feel of a muscular bike 5) average maintenance costs 6) digital speedometer, fuel indicator and km indicator. Cons : 1) slips at occasions as the company fitted zapper tyre was a disaster. Changed to ceat tyres and then skidding was under control 2) slightly heavier hence becomes uncontrollable considering the pickup, power of engine and breaking system.3) pillion seat is sightly higher which makes old age people difficult to drive with you 4) no mud flap as compared to its younger brother pulsar 150 which makes it dirty in rainy season for the rear seated person. (no option to fit it from outside dealer too)5) major observations by majority pulsar owners (220, 150 & 180) the body posture and the handle bar tends to aching shoulders after a long drive. This review is written not on first day hence has no emotions in it to give 5 stars or 1 star. All practical issues are discussed here after 6 years of regular driving summing the kms to 40000 + .Out of all 1+ for performance, 1+ for looks & features, 1+ for maintenance & overall costs, 1- for safety (tyre), 1- for body posture and muddy back seat in rainy seasons.These kinds of pros and cons will be available in each and every bike hence its upto your pocket and liking whether to opt and which to opt. Just drive safe and enjoy riding with full enjoyment.

2017 Bajaj Pulsar 180 Launch Ride Review

2017 Bajaj Pulsar 180 Launch Ride Review

10 February 2017
Pratheek Kunder

The 2017 Pulsar 180 is nothing but Bajaj’s attempt to meet the upcoming emission norms and to keep the bike relevant and stylish for the next year or two. So the 178cc engine is now BS-IV compliant and the power and torque figures continue to be 17bhp and 14.2Nm.
