Bajaj recently launched the latest Pulsar model in India, the P150. For the dual disc variant, the new bike costs Rs 1,19,757 (ex-showroom Delhi). It’s powered by a 149.68cc, single-cylinder motor dishing out 14.5bhp and 13.5Nm.

It costs Rs 1,17,495 (ex-showroom Delhi) and is one of the fairly popular electric scooters you can buy today in India. It houses a 5.4kW (peak power) motor mated to a 2.6kWh lithium-ion battery. The 450 Plus range is 85km and gets a top speed of 90kmph.
