New Pulsar P150: 5 things to know


Bajaj is rounding out the year with the launch of yet another new Pulsar model, and this time, it’s the Pulsar 150 that has received a successor, in the form of the newly launched Pulsar P150. Here’s everything you need to know about the new bike.

Bajaj Pulsar P150: engine and performance

Despite the similarity in displacement figures, Bajaj says that the P150’s 149.68cc single-cylinder motor is all new compared to the 149.5cc motor in the current Pulsar 150. Power and torque figures have gone up, but by a massive amount – 0.5hp and 0.25Nm. But Bajaj says that it has concentrated on making the bulk of the torque available throughout the usable rev range, by offering a flat torque curve.

Bajaj Pulsar P150: weight savings

There should be a marked improvement in performance with the new P150, though, because despite the largely unchanged engine output levels, this new bike is significantly lighter. Variant-for-variant, the Pulsar P150 is 10kg lighter than the current Pulsar 150, tipping the scales at 140kg (kerb).

Bajaj Pulsar P150: new design

It’s not hard to tell which is the newer of the pair when you see the two 150cc Pulsars side-by-side. The P150 features noticeably more sharp and modern styling, with a face that resembles the recent Pulsar N250 and N160. Characterised by an LED projector headlight, the overall look is quite crisp and sporty, with aggressive tank extensions and a neat-looking underbelly exhaust exit (the current Pulsar 150 gets a side-slung end-can).

Bajaj Pulsar P150: fresh features

Aside from the LED headlight, another area with a big update is instrumentation, with this P150 getting the new semi-digital infinity display seen on the other recent new Pulsars. Highlights here are a gear position indicator and a distance-to-empty readout. Other features include a side-stand engine cut-off and a USB charging port.

Bajaj Pulsar P150: variants and pricing

The Pulsar P150 is offered in two variants: single disc and twin disc. The differences are more extensive than the names might have you believe, because the single disc version (which features a 130mm rear drum brake) also gets a single-piece seat, while the twin disc version (with a 230mm rear disc) gets a slightly more aggressive stance, with split seats. In addition to this, the twin disc version also gets slightly chunkier tyres at both ends. Both variants get single-channel ABS and a 260mm front disc brake.
