Bajaj Pulsar 180F shares the same design theme as 220F and mechanicals are carried over from the earlier 180 cc model
Bajaj Pulsar 180 hasn’t got a major update for some time now and the company finally launched the new version of the 180 cc model with the same design theme as the Pulsar 220F. The dimensions of both Pulsar 180F and 220F are same along with parts sharing helped the company to price the new model competitively.
The Pulsar 180F is priced at Rs. 86,500 (Ex-Showroom) and it is Rs. 12,200 cheaper than the Pulsar 220F when compared to the regular 180 cc model the F variant is Rs. 1,500 more expensive. The Pulsar 180F is finished in neon colour scheme, which was introduced in other Pulsar models as part of MY update recently while the 220F is available in four colour options.
The Pulsar 180F comes with the same half fairing as 220F with projector headlamps and pilot lamps. The fuel tank gets new 3D Pulsar logo finished in orange colour and they have given the same colour for the split grab rails while the seats come with a grey finish on the 180 F.
The handlebar is clip-on type on both models and the instrument cluster continues with the old design like analogue tachometer and digital screen. Bajaj has also given a new engine belly cover on both models and it was introduced during the last update for the Pulsar 220F. The suspension is the same telescopic forks at the front and dual-gas charged suspension at the rear.
Bajaj Pulsar 180F will be powered by the same 178.6 cc 2-valve, air-cooled DTS-i engine and it is the same engine from the earlier 180 model. This engine produces 17 bhp of power at 8,500 rpm and 14.2 Nm of torque at 6,500 rpm. The 220F is powered by 220 cc engine with 21 bhp at 8,500 rpm and 19 Nm at 7,000 rpm.
These engines are mated to a 5-speed gearbox. The braking power comes from 260 mm disc brake at the front and 230 mm rear disc brake for both. Like other Pulsar models, the new 180F and 220F comes with a single-channel ABS braking system. Both model rides on black finished 17-inch alloy wheels with orange graphics on the 180F and red graphics on the 220F.
