2019 Bajaj Pulsar 150 range gets only cosmetic updates as no changes have been made to the powertrain
Bajaj has updated the Pulsar 150 range for the year 2019. Currently, their 150 range comprises three models including the Pulsar 150 Classic, the Pulsar 150 (standard) and the Pulsar 150 Twin-disc.

Lastly, the top end variant side panels also received a new faux carbon fiber texture which helps in adding a sporty theme to the motorcycle. The Pulsar 150 Classic, on the other hand, gets red color finishing on the grab rails, ‘Pulsar’ branding on the fuel tank, grille on the side panels and also on the headlamp cluster.
The standard variant of the Pulsar 150 too is also expected to get the same treatment as the twin disc Pulsar variant has received for the year 2019. Bajaj has also revealed the prices for the updated 2019 Pulsar 150 Classic and standard Pulsar 150.
