The Bajaj Pulsar 180F ABS variant is expected to receive a price hike of Rs 7,750 more than the standard non-ABS variant
When all the other Indian two-wheeler manufacturers have already updated their entire lineup with the mandatory ABS safety feature, it is actually quite surprising that Bajaj Auto still hasn’t announced the official prices of their ABS equipped Pulsar variants yet. According to a recent report, Bajaj will most probably launch the new semi-faired Pulsar 180F ABS on 15th April 2019.
The report also claims that the upcoming Pulsar 180F ABS variant will be priced at around Rs. 95,200 (ex-showroom). Like all other Pulsar models, the Pulsar 180F too will receive a single channel ABS system for the safety of the rider and a Rear Lift-off Protection (RLP). For your information, Bajaj Auto launched the semi-faired Pulsar 180F last month in India priced at Rs. 87,450 (ex-showroom Delhi).
The model was priced few thousand rupees more than the standard non-faired variant. The semi-faired Pulsar 180F was powered by the same 178.6 cc, 4-valve (which actually has 2 more valves than the standard variant), air-cooled DTS-i unit. This unit produces about 17 bhp of peak power at 8,500 rpm and 14.22 Nm of peak torque at 6,500 rpm.
The engine is paired with a five-speed gearbox. The motorcycle shares the same braking setup with the standard variant. The Pulsar 180F relies on a 260mm disc brake towards the front and 230mm disc at the rear. However, like we already mentioned above it was quite surprising that they decided not to equip it with the mandatory ABS safety feature.
That said, the suspension duties of the motorcycles are carried out by a conventional telescopic suspension towards the front and a five-way adjustable Nitrox shock absorber at the rear. Besides these technical specifications, the Pulsar 180F also gets a semi-fairing which is borrowed from the Pulsar 220F.
The Pulsar 180F semi fairing gets a vertically stacked twin projector headlamp, and a fairing mounted rear view mirror. The motorcycle is offered in two interesting Neon Orange, and Neon Red paint schemes. The motorcycle rivals directly against the TVS Apache RTR 200 4V and the Suzuki Gixxer SF 150 in its segment.
