The company has already launched all-new Pulsar 220F three days back and also preparing to launch the updated Pulsar 180 soon. Meanwhile it has discontinued the sporty looking Pulsar AS200 and AS150. Both the models have been discontinued temporarily, and they will come equipped with new BS-IV emission norm compliant engines.

The company last sold the AS200 and AS150 models on Dhanteras on 28th October and since then production has been stopped. Only the models in stock are on sale now and updated AS twins are expected to be launched in early 2017.

Bajaj Pulsar has been one of the most popular and bestselling bike line-up in Indian market for last 15 years. The high performance and sporty characters of these bikes have made them appealing to young customers. Pulsar AS200 and AS150 come similar looking and these models deliver a true sporty vibe with their design. But both these models are less popular than other Pulsar models. Now Bajaj wants to concentrate on updating the popular Pulsar models first.
While Pulsar 220F is already launched at a price of Rs. 91,000 (ex-showroom, New Delhi), the 2017 Pulsar 180 is also ready to go on sale. Apart from that, Pulsar 150 is also about to launch soon with an upgraded BS-IV engine and some other updates as well. Once these models are launched, the Adventure Sport twins will be back with new engines and probably donning new colour schemes as well.
