Bajaj Pulsar 150 Classic launched at Rs 67,437

12th Jun 2018 3:43 pm

The Pulsar 150 Classic is the second-most affordable offering in the Pulsar family.

Bajaj Auto has launched a new variant of the Pulsar 150 (christened ‘Pulsar 150 Classic’) at Rs 67,437 (ex-showroom, Mumbai). The variant is based on the Bajaj Pulsar 150, but makes do without graphics, a rear disc brake, a split-seat and tank extensions. Since it skips these features, the Pulsar 150 Classic is Rs 10,118 cheaper than the Pulsar 150 twin-disc – a significant difference in price.

The Bajaj Pulsar 150 Classic is only available in black, with blacked-out components and styling reminiscent of the Pulsar 150 UG III (launched in 2006). The new bike hasn’t been updated on the official website yet; but we have been informed by dealerships of its arrival by the end of this week. The Pulsar 150 Classic is the second-most affordable motorcycle in the Pulsar range after the Pulsar 135 LS.

Mechanically, the Pulsar 150 Classic remains identical to the standard offering. It’s powered by a 149cc, single-cylinder motor developing 14hp at 8,000rpm and 13.4Nm of torque at 6,000rpm. Transmission duties are handled by a five-speed gearbox. The frame and suspension are also unchanged from the standard offering. Braking hardware consists of a 240mm disc brake at front and a 130mm drum unit at the rear. Since the Pulsar 150 Classic is a variant, and not a new product, Bajaj isn't compelled to equip the motorcycle with ABS.

The new variant is a move by Bajaj to make the Pulsar 150 more accessible to buyers, especially in Tier-3 cities, where the Pulsar 150 still remains an aspirational motorcycle. It will compete against the Honda Unicorn and the Hero Achiever 150.
