Both the Pulsar 150 and the Pulsar 180 get a single channel ABS system and are priced around Rs 7,000 more than their non-ABS variants
Bajaj is definitely on a role as they recently introduced the Pulsar 220F ABS and the Avenger 220 ABS variants in India. After introducing the updated models, Bajaj has now launched the twin disc variant of the Pulsar 150 and the Pulsar 180 with the mandatory ABS safety feature.
The Pulsar 150 twin disc ABS variant is priced at Rs 87,226 (ex showroom) while the Pulsar 180 ABS variant is priced at Rs 92,563 (ex showroom). You can all expect the ABS variant of these motorcycles to reach Bajaj dealerships soon. If we keep the price point in mind, then the Bajaj Pulsar 150 is pricier by almost Rs 7,328 more than the non-ABS Pulsar 150 variant which retails at Rs 80,794 (ex showroom).
The Pulsar 180 ABS costs Rs. 7,040 more than the non-ABS Pulsar 180 variant which is priced at Rs 85,823 (ex showroom). Apart from the addition of a single channel ABS system, there are no other changes made to the motorcycle. The Pulsar 150 twin disc variant with ABS is still powered by the same 149cc, single-cylinder, air-cooled engine.
The engine paired to a 5-speed transmission produces about 14 bhp of peak power and a peak torque of 13.4 Nm. The Pulsar 180, on the other hand, is powered by a 180 cc, air-cooled, single-cylinder engine. The engine makes about 16.8 bhp of peak power and a peak torque of 14.2 Nm and is paired with a 5 speed transmission.
There is no doubt in the fact that the Bajaj Pulsar 150 is the most popular and also the highest selling Bajaj product in India. The Pulsar 180 bridges the gap between the Pulsar 150 and 220 cc variants quite well. Bajaj will also officially introduce a semi-faired variant of the 180 soon in India which takes its styling inspiration from the popular Pulsar 220F.
Apart from introducing the updated ABS equipped variant, Bajaj will also be launching the 2019 Dominar 400 soon in India. The flagship Bajaj offering will get plenty of premium upgrades including upside down front suspension, upgraded instrument cluster, and a redesigned exhaust.
