Homegrown two-wheeler maker, Bajaj is all set to give a mid-life facelift to its popular Pulsar 150 motorcycle in the country. This motorcycle is currently the best-selling 150cc bike in the country. With new updates, Bajaj aims to further increase the sales of the Pulsar 150. The 2018 Bajaj Pulsar 150 will share mechanics and cosmetic parts from the larger Pulsar 180, which gives it a premium feel. Also See – 2018 Bajaj Avenger 180 Launched In India
Talking about changes, the 2018 Pulsar 150 gets fatter front forks and rear disc brake. Instead of single piece unit, the new motorcycle comes with split seat arrangement for sportier look. Adding to it, the bike also gets a new dual-tone shade. Also See – Dominar’s Non-ABS Variant Not Discontinued, Clarifies Bajaj
It is expected that most of the changes will be given to the chassis and paint. It is powered by the same 149cc engine that powers the pre-facelift model. This engine churns out a maximum power output of 14PS at 8,000rpm and a peak torque of 13.4Nm at 6,000rpm. Power is transmitted to the rear wheel via a 5-speed gearbox. The bike continues to feature the twin gas-charged rear shock absorbers. The Pulsar 150 facelift rides on 17-inch alloy wheels along with the 240mm front disc, which is also available in the outgoing model.

With new changes, the updated Pulsar 150 will have sportier styling to compete well against the likes of Honda X-Blade and others in its league. Since the revised model has been snapped at the company’s dealership stockyard, it is expected to go on sale in sometime in April or May, 2018.

The addition of rear disc brakes, fatter front forks and split seats are likely to make the Pulsar 150 slightly expensive than the previous model. We believe that the new 2018 Pulsar 150 could cost around 77,000. The outgoing model is priced at Rs 73,626 (ex-showroom, Delhi).
