Bajaj has just launched the new Pulsar P150, plugging the gap between the Pulsar 150 and Pulsar N160 in its range. The TVS Apache RTR 160 2V rival is offered in two variants – single disc, single seat and twin disc, split seat. Read on to see how they differ.

Bajaj Pulsar P150 single disc, single seat: Rs 1.17 lakh

The entry-level variant of the Pulsar P150, as the name suggests, comes equipped with a single 260mm disc brake up front and a single-piece seat. Other differentiators to the higher-spec version include a 130mm drum brake at the rear and a single-piece handlebar. This variant also runs on slimmer 80/100-17 and 100/90-17 at the front and rear, respectively. 

Bajaj Pulsar P150 twin disc, split seat: Rs 1.20 lakh

The higher-spec Pulsar P150 variant costs Rs 3,000 more than the single-disc version. For the extra cash, you get a 230mm disc brake at the rear, a split-seat set-up and clip-on handlebars. This version is also equipped with meatier 90/90-17 rubber at the front and 110/90-17 at the rear.

Bajaj Pulsar P150: more details

The Bajaj Pulsar P150 is powered by an air-cooled, 149cc single-cylinder engine that puts out 14.5hp at 8,500rpm and 13.5Nm at 6,000rpm, paired with a 5-speed gearbox. The P150 weighs 140kg, which, variant-for-variant, is 10kg lighter than the current Pulsar 150. Seat height stands at an accessible 790mm, the fuel tank capacity is 14 litres and the ground clearance is 165mm. Suspension set-up consists of a 31mm telescopic fork up front and a monoshock at the rear.

Both variants are equipped with single-channel ABS and are available in five colours – Racing Red, Caribbean Blue, Ebony Black Red, Ebony Black Blue and Ebony Black White. The Pulsar P150 rivals the likes of the Yamaha FZ-FI, TVS Apache RTR 160 2V and the Hero Xtreme 160R.
