- The new Bajaj Pulsar 150 will get a fuel-injected motor
- Gets refreshed set of decals
- Features steel-braided line for the front brake
The new Bajaj Pulsar 150 was spotted testing in India which is likely to be the BS VI-compliant model. While the motorcycle is expected to get an engine update to adhere to the upcoming emission norms, it has also received subtle tweaks to its styling and cycle parts.
The spotted test mule adorned a red paint scheme sporting a refreshed set of graphics. While the new decals can only be seen on the headlamp cowl, expect them to make their way to rest of the body panels on the final model. As for the changes on the cycle parts, the motorcycle in the picture is equipped with steel-braided line for the front brake and the front forks now carry reflectors.
The Pulsar 150 is powered by a 149cc, air-cooled, carbureted motor which churns out 13.8bhp at 9,000rpm and 13.4Nm at 6,000rpm. This powerplant is likely to receive fuel-injection system to comply with the upcoming emission norms. The motorcycle is suspended by telescopic forks at the front and twin gas-charged shock absorbers at the rear. Braking is handled by a single disc up front and a drum brake at the rear. However, Bajaj also offers a double disc variant for the Pulsar 150. The braking setup is accompanied by a single-channel ABS as standard.
The Bajaj Pulsar 150 is available in three trims including Neon, single disc and double disc which are priced at Rs 68,250, Rs 84,461 and Rs 88,339, respectively (ex-showroom). The upcoming models are likely to carry a minor premium over these pricing.
