The limited edition Pulsar 150 will receive few cosmetic updates but no mechanical changes
We informed our readers earlier that Bajaj is testing an updated Pulsar 150 equipped with ABS along with some other cosmetic updates. However, recently another special edition model of the Pulsar 150 was spotted at a dealership in Tamil Nadu which sported few cosmetic updates.
We do believe that this is a new variant which will be launched during this festive season to increase some sales numbers. As you can clearly notice in the image the special edition Pulsar spotted in Tamil Nadu gets red coloured contrast accents all over its body.
The Red accents can be noticed on the motorcycles pilot lamp housing towards the front visor, on the Pulsar logo positioned on the fuel tank, centre panel, wheel rims, ‘150’ logo positioned on the tail section and lastly also on the grab rail bars for the pillion.
Besides these contrasting colour accents, we do not notice any other cosmetic updates made to the motorcycle. We can also confirm you all that apart from these visual update this particular special edition variant of the Pulsar 150 won’t receive any mechanical updates to it.
As far as the engine is concerned the Pulsar 150 is powered by a tried and tested 149 ccs air-cooled DTS-i engine which is capable of producing about 14 PS of peak power and 13.4 Nm of peak torque. The engine is paired to a 5-speed gearbox which sends power to the rear wheels.
The Pulsar 150 gets a front disc and drum brakes as standard while you can also opt for a rear disc variant as well which was introduced recently. Expect this new variant to be launched within the next couple of days and will be priced slightly higher than the standard variant.
The updated Pulsar on the other hand which was spotted with an ABS setup will most probably hit the Indian market in 2019. The bike will obviously sport safety features like ABS but also will receive some cosmetic update as well in the form of a contrasting body colour and a new belly pan.
Bajaj will also make some updates to the engine as well and we do believe that this will actually be a BSVI compliant unit. The Pune based two-wheeler motorcycle maker will initially update their entire Pulsar family as well which is set to launch in the year 2020.
