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.Read more
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
style, performance, pick-up, mileage, zero maintenance
