    Bajaj pulsar has always been a dream sports bike for the 90s kids and so on still going... Its not just a bike but India's first sport bike. Pulsar is a complete satisfying bike for comfort, city rides, long rides, etc. Pulsar has changed the view of every biker in India in a day to day basis. Pulsar is a trend setter altogether anyway for the Indian crowd. Pulsar has always been reliable for road grip and driveway expectations. Pulsarians are always happy with the performance delivery, mileage and comfort as always. Go ahead with pulsar without thinking a change. Cheers!!!

    It's a very thorough review, if you want comparisons just check final verdict at the end. I have owned this bike from quite some time now. I was thinking to buy a 150cc upgrading from 125cc bajaj bike. But due to 3k different and much better feel in riding, i opted for this.So, buying experience was quite nice. Just gave the cash and took my bike from showroom on spot (no waiting).Initial torque feels really nice, and you could get around 50 easily, which feels fine if you are riding within a city.Its bigger tyres (especially rear one) is sufficient enough to tilt it on any side. Once i felt that i am falling but the bike was supportive enough to keep me going.But on the other hand, due to its handle, it has a big turning radius. You either have to skid your tyres or reverse it a bit if you want to take a you turn in single lane.Looks are good. Although except 3d pulsar logo, everything else is sticker (in my 3 year old model at-least).Seating is a let down for me. I have push myself back to get some support for my thighs. Although, i haven't yet found a suitable bike which won't tire me from its seats (including avenger and bullet).Console feels quite dated now, its been nearly same from last few years.It surely feels like a worthy upgrade from any 150cc bike. Fz is 13bhp and its 17bhp sure does creates difference in riding "practically".It's headlamp is also able to produce enough light to be able to see at quite some distance so that you can drive at around 50 60 easily during night as well.Coming onto clutch and gear. There is definitely some problem with bajaj's clutch and gear. Nearly every bike from bajaj seems to have this issue ranging from 100cc discover, 125cc xcd, 180 and avenger. All had some issue with gears. They just get stuck and you have to apply much higher push than normal.Braking is ok ok. Rear discs would have definitely added much needed punch in bike.Also, my bike had battery issues as well. Warranty let me replace 1 battery but now there is issue in other battery as well. And since there is no kick option, bajaj should take care that battery has a better life. (it has exide's battery which is one of the best in industry but don't know why its keep getting spoiled).Maintaining this bike is absolutely cheap. Parts are cheap and easily available. But quality is also not reliable.Servicing of vehicles is joke in India. Have your own knowledge of vehicle and service its yourself. Don't fall into extended warranty trap. Just ask someone to wash it. I faced chain jamming issue because some idiot put used or may be oil with dirt due to which chain was not flowing properly. You would be lucky to find a good mechanic.Since i have mentioned all pros and cons part by part let me get to comparisons:1st option that comes to your head is apache 180, i did thought of it but then i have read so many reviews with problem in piece. I mean, i can't let luck decide whether my hard earned money was spent wisely or not (that's why we read reviews).2nd is new (or yet to be launched) avenger 180 but that has absolutely different shape and style.Other options are hornet, fz and 150. You have to make a choice between fuel and riding experience between 150 and 180. 150 has 5 10kmpl more average. Fz(s) is 1 to 5k higher priced but also has (much) higher selling value. Has much better clutch and gears along with fuel efficiency. But power and pickup is on lower end than 180.Haven't driven hornet but with specs sheet it feels to be in same proposition in as fz. Final verdict:You can try apache and pulsar if you want power and speed at this budget. Mind you wider tyre of pulsar does helps at high speeds. You should try fz/hornet if you can compromise speed n power for better reliability and selling price (hornet isn't that much popular as fz).Go for 150 if you need cheapest one and here only to read the review.Apache 160 over 150 for rear disc and looks.Happy biking!

    Bike is great, specially styling. Used it for long trips didn't face any problem at all. The main thing about the bike is it's great pick up and rugged body. Service is economical. But balance of the bike should have been better. Rest it's a perfect combination of power and style, a true value for money.

    Bought the bike in 2012 when i was a college student. Its been 5 years and 40k+ kms and the bike never disappointed me.

    Such a timeless design, still gives a competition to the younger bikes in the market.

    Perfect combination of power, comfort and mileage for city commute and highway tours.

    Completely in love with this bike for 5 years and no reason to even think for an upgrade.

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.
