Bajaj Auto has revealed the BS6-compliant Pulsar 180 naked roadster for the Indian market. The motorcycle features mechanical upgrades to comply with the newest emission norms. It also packs a few styling revisions over the old model. Here we bring you the top five highlights of the Bajaj Pulsar 180 BS6.
The styling cues are similar to the BS4 version and the latest iteration of the Pulsar 180 continues to feature a single-pod headlight with twin DRLs, a tinted visor, a semi-digital instrument cluster, a muscular fuel tank with shrouds, split-style seats, and a two-piece pillion grab rail. The updated model, however, now gets an engine cowl that gives it a sportier look. Bajaj Auto has listed the BS6 model in a single colour option – Black Red.
The naked roadster uses the same BS6-compliant motor that also powers the Pulsar 180F Neon. Thus, mechanical specifications include a 178.6cc, single-cylinder, air-cooled engine that churns out 16.7bhp of maximum power at 8,500rpm and 14.52Nm of peak torque at 6,500rpm. The motor is linked to a five-speed gearbox.
The suspension and the braking setup, too, are similar to the Pulsar 180F Neon. The shock absorption tasks are performed by telescopic forks at the front and preload-adjustable twin springs at the rear. The braking setup comprises a 280mm single disc at the front and a 230mm single rotor at the back while the safety net is provided by a single-channel ABS.
The motorcycle features a halogen headlight at the front while the taillight is an LED unit. The semi-digital instrument cluster uses a revised layout that displays fuel economy and distance to empty details.
