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
Value for Money
