The new Pulsar 150 model is designed with the all-black design theme of the elder Pulsar sibling including the shock absorbers, alloy wheels and engines but overall it bears a striking similarity to its sibling, the Bajaj Pulsar 180. There are plenty of stylish touches, including the smartened heel and toe levers and the bike's newly refined tail. Its updated razor-sharp taillight is unique and distinctive perhaps the best part of the updated design. Overall, the bike's exterior is stylish and sleek, an improvement on the previous version.
Bajaj Pulsar 150 has been steadily upgraded to feature digital instrument consoles. It is also equipped with the digital console, including digital speedometer, odometer, low-fuel warning and fuel gauge.Compared to other bikes in the 150cc class, the Pulsar's handling is athletic and nimble. Thanks to the patented ExhausTEC system, the bike is highly manoeuvrable in city traffic and built-up areas. However, at low speeds the Pulsar 150 can lack responsiveness and agility. The bike is a decent all-rounder it does not excel in any particular area, but ticks all the boxes for a commuter motorcycle. The Pulsar 150 is equipped with 240mm disc brakes at the front and 130mm drum brakes at the back.
The large, powerful front brakes make all the difference here smaller drum brakes would not be an equal match for its capable engine, but the sized-up disc brakes are suited to the challenge. When applied, the brakes bring the bike to a quick and stable stop, with a braking distance from 60 to 0 kmph on 16.33 meters, which puts it equal with other Pulsar models and ahead of many of the competition. With a nice eye-catching design and greatly enhanced performance, the Pulsar 150 is a superb ride for inner city commuters who do not require too many additional features.
