    New Bajaj Pulsar 150cc Launch Price Rs 1.17 L – 10 Kg Lighter, 5 Colours

    Pulsar 150 used to be the least expensive of the Pulsar range, but that spot is now taken by Pulsar 125New Bajaj Pulsar 150ccPulsar is the most successful range of motorcycles that ever rolled out of Bajaj plant. We say this because a lot of motorcycles have come and gone but only a few have stuck till now. Pulsar is among the brands that stuck while Discover and XCD series didn’t. One look at the sales charts, you can immediately say that Pulsar series far outsell both Apache series by TVS and FZ series by Yamaha.Being “The Fastest Indian”, Pulsar series has immense popularity and a cult following in the country and also in various global markets. A Pulsar 125 might oversell a Pulsar 150 today. But Pulsar 150 is the king of Pulsars if taken into account its role in establishing the brand since its inception. So, Bajaj has updated this legend to compete with rivals for MY2022. Let’s take a look.2022 Pulsar 150 – New Design & LooksBajaj has completely overhauled the design of the Pulsar 150 in this update. The new design language makes the Pulsar P150 sportier, sharper and lighter. It has a new aerodynamic 3D front that embodies sculptural purity and sports a dynamic interplay of metalised, dual colours. The single-disc variant allows a more upright stance, while the twin-disc variant has a sportier stance and comes with a split seat.A dynamic tank profile is contrasted with a thin waistline that extends to a contoured seat profile. Along with a 790mm seat height, the proportions are made for rider comfort. With a new mono-shock rear suspension, and an underbelly exhaust positioned near the bike’s centre of gravity, the design ensures better balance and handling – making it one of the most manoeuvrable bikes in its class.New Bajaj Pulsar 150ccAlong with these significant upgrades, there is a 10-kg reduction in weight (for the twin-disc variant), which means an 11% increase in the power-to-weight ratio, thus enhancing the sporty creds of the bike even further.New Bajaj Pulsar 150cc SpecsThe Pulsar P150 is powered by a new 149.68cc engine, which gives best-in-class power and instantaneous throttle response. It delivers a peak power of 14.5 Ps @ 8500 RPM and a maximum torque of 13.5 Nm @ 6000 RPM. Most importantly, 90% of the torque is available across the usable RPM range, allowing the motorcycle to deliver the signature ‘Pulsar rush’ and be the first off the block in every situation. Add to that a superior gear shift and a damper for better NVH management, and you have the most refined Pulsar 150 to date that glides through the city streets with consummate ease.Speaking on the occasion, Rakesh Sharma, Executive Director – Bajaj Auto Ltd., said, “Two decades ago, Pulsar 150 created the genre of sports sporty street motorcycling. With the launch of the all-new Pulsar P150, we have again raised the performance bar! The P150s are a great addition to the new Pulsar platform, which has already seen the launch of the 250s and the dual-channel-ABS-fitted N160. Engineering and design excellence combined with an intimate knowledge of the customer have shaped the Pulsar P150, which is sure to delight its vast customer base!”The Pulsar P150 is attractively priced at Rs 1,19,757 (ex-showroom Delhi) and Rs 1,19,565 (ex-showroom Kolkata) for twin-disc variant and Rs 1,16,755 (ex-showroom New Delhi) and Rs 1,16,563 (ex-showroom Kolkata) for single-disc variant. It will be available in 5 colours for both variants – Racing Red, Caribbean Blue, Ebony Black Red, Ebony Black Blue and Ebony Black White. The motorcycle was launched in Kolkata today and will be rolled out all over the country in the coming weeks.BAJAJ PULSAR P150 SPECIFICATIONSDisplacement – 149.68 ccMax Power – 10.66 kW (14.5 PS) @ 8500 rpmMax Torque – 13.5 Nm @ 6000 rpmTransmission – Constant mesh 5 speedFUEL TANK – 14 LTYRES FrontPulsar 150 Twin Disc – 90/90-17Pulsar 150 Single Disc – 80/100-17TYRES RearPulsar 150 Twin Disc – 110/80-17Pulsar 150 Single Disc – 100/90-17SUSPENSION Front – Telescopic (31 mm)SUSPENSION Rear – MonoshockBRAKES Front – 260 mm Disc, Single Channel ABSBRAKES Rear – Pulsar 150 Twin Disc 230 mm DiscBRAKES Rear – Pulsar 150 Single Disc 130 mm DrumWheelbase – 1352 mmSeat Height – 790 mmGround clearance – 165 mmKerb Weight – 140 kgSeat Type – Pulsar 150 Twin Disc – SplitSeat Type – Pulsar 150 Single Disc – Single ContinuousHandlebar Pulsar 150 Twin Disc – Clip-OnHandlebar Pulsar 150 Single Disc – Single TubularConsole Features – Gear indicator, Clock, Distance-to-empty indicatorHeadlamp – Bi-functional LED projector headlamp with LED pilot lampTail Lamp – LED Tail lamp with Glitter patternMobile Charger- USB connectivity More

    New Bajaj Motorcycle Launch 22nd Nov – Is It Pulsar 150cc ?

    With multiple trademarks filed in recent past, Bajaj has been able to keep the guessing game on about its new bikeModified Pulsar image for illustration purposeLast year, Bajaj had achieved a new milestone when it launched the biggest Pulsar ever, N250 and F250. Apart from being the most powerful Pulsar, the 250 twins also received a new engine and platform, along with other changes. The updates are planned to be introduced with all Pulsar motorcycles, something already evident with N160 that was launched earlier this year in June.It is likely that Bajaj will focus first on upgrading its bestsellers. In that case, there’s a strong possibility of N150 being launched soon. Test mules of N150 have been spotted multiple times in recent months, indicating towards its possible launch. However, going by the number of new trademarks filed by the company, it’s hard to reach a definitive conclusion. Some of the new trademarks filed by Bajaj include Twinner, Pulsar Elan, Pulsar Eleganz and Darkstar.Bajaj-KTM upcoming bikeIn future, Bajaj will be launching multiple new bikes via its partnership with KTM and Triumph. One of the most awaited is a premium electric motorcycle being developed in collaboration with KTM. EVs will start to dominate the automobile sector around 2030-35, which presents significant opportunities for OEMs. Even now, EVs are registering strong growth month after month.As Bajaj-KTM electric motorcycle is being developed from scratch, it will take a couple of years to reach production stage. Bajaj is also expected to launch affordable electric bikes in the future. A dedicated facility for EVs is already operational, where Chetak is currently being manufactured. Upcoming KTM and Husqvarna electric bikes will also be manufactured at this facility. Some EV-like trademark names filed by Bajaj include Dynamo, Tecnica and Technik.New Bajaj Technik, Tecnica – Names of upcoming Electric Scooters based on Chetak?Bajaj-Triumph bikeBajaj-Triumph partnership will spawn new single-cylinder motorcycles in the range of 250cc and 350-450cc. One of these, a roadster, was spotted earlier this year. The roadster could be equipped with a 350cc motor, in which case, it will primarily rival Royal Enfield Meteor 350. A scrambler version is expected to be launched at a later date, which will rival Hunter 350 and Yezdi Scrambler.Triumph’s entry-level roadster has a magnetic profile and has potential to emerge as a strong rival to Royal Enfield bikes. Some key features include all-LED lights, USD front forks, sculpted fuel tank with chrome filler cap, alloy wheels and upswept exhaust. Design inspiration appears to be a mix of Bonneville range and Trident 660.Triumph’s new sub-500cc motorcycle will have to be launched at a competitive price point if it is to challenge market leader Royal Enfield. In case of Bajaj, the company has purchased rights to Vincent Motorcycles. This brand could be used to launch new motorcycles rivalling Royal Enfield.Bajaj can also launch Twinner in future, which could be a twin-cylinder motorcycle. It could come via Bajaj-Triumph collaboration or through KTM. A 490cc parallel-twin motor will be powering KTM’s new 490cc range that will have 490 Adventure, 490 Duke, RC490, and 490 Supermoto/Enduro. The 490cc motor is being developed jointly by Bajaj and KTM. It is possible that Bajaj could use this platform to launch its Pulsar 500cc Twinner bike. More

    Bajaj Pulsar 125 Carbon Fibre Edition Vs Std Variant – Walkaround

    Other than its stickers, Pulsar 125 Carbon Fibre Edition doesn’t bring anything new to the tableBajaj Pulsar Carbon Edition. Image – Biker Prakash ChoudharyRoyal Enfield motorcycles have stood the test of time. It has a timeless design that has aged gracefully. Conversely, one can say that it has stayed relevant today as there were not many choices around back in the day.What if we told you that the Pulsar design that we see and adore today, was conceived in 2008? I personally own a 2010 model that has a similar design as the one sold today. Over 14 years. That’s how long Pulsar design has been around. Bajaj is set to update its Pulsar lineup and test mules are taking rounds time and time again.In the meantime, to keep sales on the boil, Bajaj has launched Pulsar 125 Carbon Fibre Edition in India. Speaking of sales, Pulsars collectively sold 1,13,870 units in October 2022. Most of the numbers are likely from smaller capacity Pulsars. So, it is important to keep them fresh.Pulsar 125 Carbon Fibre Edition LaunchedBajaj has completely overhauled the design of Pulsar 125 Carbon Fibre Edition. Bought it? Pfft. There’s not a single thing that is changed from the regular model except for stickers. When parked side by side, the regular model and Carbon Fibre Edition model differ only in their graphics. Take a look at Biker Prakash Chaudhary’s video below.[embedded content][embedded content]Bajaj is offering a belly pan with a single-piece seat variant of Carbon Fibre Edition as well. Regular model gets a belly pan only with a split seat option. It enhances the bike’s appeal and makes it look a lot more muscular. Both Pulsar 125s still get halogen headlights and turn indicators while taillights are LEDs. They both get the same tank guard too.Owing to its name, Pulsar 125 Carbon Fibre Edition gets carbon fibre stickers on various places around the motorcycle. Mainly on the front fender, something that Pulsar 150 also gets, fuel tank, side body panels, tank extensions, headlight cowl, near rear subframe and more. Fuel tank now gets slightly different graphics than the regular Pulsar 125.Price & SpecsBajaj is offering Pulsar 125 Carbon Fibre Edition in three different colour schemes. One is silver, which is revealed in the video. Other two are Blue and Red. Carbon Fibre Edition is available in both single-piece seat options and split-seat options. Former is priced at Rs. 89,254 and the latter is priced at Rs. 91,642 (prices ex-sh).Belly PanPulsar 125 Carbon Fibre Edition remains identical mechanically. It is powered by a 124.4 cc single-cylinder engine that makes 11.64 bhp of power at 8,500 RPM and 10.8 Nm of torque at 6,500 RPM. It is mated to a 5-speed gearbox. This engine is air-cooled and can deliver around 50 to 60 km/l. More

    Bajaj DARKSTAR Name Registered – Pulsar Based Adventure Motorcycle ?

    Bajaj Auto is working on launching range of adventure motorcycles – It is likely to be christened DARKSTARBajaj registers the name DARKSTARADVs are all the rage right now in 2W space. Even though they won’t challenge the sheer sales of a Splendor or an Activa, they are one of the most sought-after types of motorcycles. Especially for Indian conditions with not-too-delightful road conditions.In 4W PVs, pseudo SUVs have sprung up like clockwork. Similarly, in motorcycles, we have pseudo ADVs like Honda CB200X and the likes. These look like ADVs and offer a good stance, but don’t come equipped with off-road-worthy hardware.Bajaj Darkstar Name RegisteredBajaj is no stranger to pseudo ADVs. We got the AS200 which is well forgotten today. Dubbed as Adventure Sports, it was based on an NS200 and got a bikini fairing of sorts. Recently, Bajaj Darkstar name was trademarked which is speculated to be the Indian bike maker’s next ADV or pseudo-ADV based on Pulsar 250 platform.The trademark filed by Bajaj Auto has passed formality checks. Darkstar is likely to be the name of an upcoming motorcycle. There have been reports in the past which said that Bajaj is working on launching ADV motorcycles. It is likely that Darktsar is an ADV based on the new Pulsar 250cc platform.Bajaj DarkStar Name RegisteredWith demand for ADVs on the rise, a manufacturer like Bajaj Auto would not want to miss the opportunity. After the AS200, Bajaj never ventured into ADVs again. Currently, Hero XPulse 200 is the most accessible ADV / off-roader on the market. We also have Honda CB200X, Suzuki V-Strom SX 250, Royal Enfield Himalayan, and more.Bajaj already offers a wide variety of Pulsars today. We have regular Pulsar 125, a sporty NS125, Pulsar 150, NS160, recently launched N160, NS200, RS200 and lastly, based on the new 250cc platform, Pulsar N250 and F250. An ADV based on this new 250cc platform would make Bajaj’s portfolio stronger and hence reach a more customer base.What To Expect?This is not the first time an ADV by Bajaj is making news. There have been multiple rumours before, but nothing materialised. If Darkstar ADV does become a reality, there is a high possibility of it being offered with the new Pulsar 250cc platform instead of the KTM-derived 250cc engine that does duties on Dominar 250.Cycle parts are likely to be identical to the Pulsar F250. We do hope Bajaj considers offering a 19” front and 17” rear spoked wheel combo and slightly longer travel suspension forks. It would make a world of difference in beaten paths and will stand out from pseudo ADVs. We don’t expect 21” and 18” combo offered with XPulse 200 and even Rally Kit, even though it would be very nice.Pulsar 250cc twins make 24.5 PS and 2.15 Nm and are coupled to a 5-speed gearbox. It gets a slipper clutch and dual-channel ABS that are likely to be offered on the supposedly upcoming ADV from Bajaj. Until the company officially reveals further info, Bajaj Darkstar name will be a mystery. More

    Upcoming Bajaj Pulsar N150 Spied – LED Headlight Revealed

    Upcoming Bajaj Pulsar N150 will be a generation update – Featuring new platform, engine and partsUpcoming Bajaj Pulsar N150 SpiedWe have seen Bajaj hold on to its designs for a long time. The Indian auto manufacturer provides a tonne of updates every now and then. But they’re mostly reserved for graphics and colour schemes. While design will be retained. For example, a 2008 Pulsar 150 looks identical to the current Pulsar 150 if parked side by side.I say this because I own a 2010 model and 12 years later, Bajaj still sells the same design. However, we have seen Bajaj finally transition to a newer design language and family DNA. Now it is the turn of Pulsar 150 to transition to this new design DNA. Thanks to automotive enthusiast Bhargav Mhatre for these spy shots.Upcoming Bajaj Pulsar N150 Spied TestingFor starters, these spy shots were clicked in Ahmednagar. Upcoming Bajaj Pulsar N150 spied, is a slight departure from the face seen on N250 and N160. Thus, there is a strong possibility that this particular test mule may not be classified under N family. To make matters more confusing, Bajaj has a lot of trademarks registered in India.Mainly, Pulsar Elan and Pulsar Eleganz. Bajaj can use any of these trademarks and create a distinct lineup. For example, all the Pulsars branched under ‘NS’ lineup can now fall under ‘N’. The regular Pulsars could be brought under the Elan or Eleganz lineup. We say this because there is a distinct design difference between the two as seen in spy shots.Upcoming Bajaj Pulsar N150 SpiedThe camouflaged spy shots reveal its front design and it clearly showcases DNA differences we mentioned earlier. New Pulsar 150 LED headlight is clearly visible. Pulsar N250 and N160 get a sleeker face with their bi-functional projector headlamp sitting in between the LED DRLs while in this spy shot, DRLs are placed on top and projector is placed below with a likely halogen bulb in it.Mirrors look similar to N160 and N250 while Bajaj Pulsar N150 spied, and gets a commuter-ish engine crash guard. Pulsar N160 and N250 get a much sleeker engine crash guard. This Pulsar lineup has been spied on before too. Sometimes alongside N125 that is also under testing and will be unveiled soon.Specs & featuresBajaj is likely to update the engines to deliver better performance and mileage. Coming to Pulsar 150, it is one of the highest-selling in the Pulsar line-up and is currently powered by a 149.5cc single-cylinder engine making 13.8 bhp of power at 8,500 RPM and 13.25 Nm of torque at 6,500 RPM. It gets a 2V head along with just air cooling and is coupled to a 5-speed gearbox. Bajaj also offers a dual disc variant and gets dingle-channel ABS as standard.Upcoming Bajaj Pulsar N150 SpiedSome of its cycle parts are likely to be carried over along with features. As the frequency between test mules getting papped increases, we can expect that a launch is likely to follow by the end of this year or early next year. When launched, it will compete against Yamaha FZ, Honda Unicorn, TVS Apache RTR 160, Honda X-Blade and the likes. More

    Bajaj Triumph 350cc Spied In India For First Time – Royal Enfield Rival

    Triumph’s new range of single-cylinder motorcycles are likely to get 250cc and 350-450cc capacity enginesBajaj Triumph 350cc Motorcycle Spied In IndiaOnce a taboo for premium motorcycle brands, the quarter litre and 350-450cc mid-size segment is now too big to be ignored. Earlier, BMW Motorrad had entered this space with launch of their 300cc motorcycles. Triumph will be next, as their new street roadster has been spotted in production-ready form. A scrambler based on the same platform will also be launched simultaneously.While exact capacity of Triumph’s entry-level Bonneville motorcycles is not known, the company had earlier stated that it will be in the range of 250cc to 650cc. These new bikes have been developed by Triumph’s UK R&D division, whereas production will be handled by Bajaj. Launch is expected soon. It has now been spied in India for the first time, near Bajaj plant in Pune. It is the scrambler variant that has been spied now.Bajaj Triumph 350cc Spied In IndiaThe classic version will rival the likes of Royal Enfield Meteor, while the Scrambler will take on the likes of Hunter and Yezdi. Retro theme is clearly evident with features such as round headlamps and rear view mirrors.Other key features include USD front forks, chiselled fuel tank design with chrome filler cap, all-LED lights, twin-piece seat with quilted pattern stitching and upswept exhaust. Fine detailing can be seen on exposed engine parts, which enhances the bike’s overall look and feel.Bajaj Triumph 350cc Motorcycle Spied In IndiaTriumph’s new entry-level roadster utilizes a tubular frame with a cast swingarm. It has 17-inch wheels at both ends, shod with 110/70 front and 150/60 rear tyres. Aesthetically, the bike appears to offer a judicious mix of classic and modern features. While some features appear to be inspired by Bonneville range, others look familiar to Trident 660.Bajaj Triumph 350cc Motorcycle Spied In IndiaWith its new entry-level bikes, Triumph can target multiple markets globally. Apart from its home market UK, significant opportunities exist in countries like Indonesia and Philippines. Triumph will be looking to make its single-cylinder bikes accessible to a much larger customer base, something that hasn’t been possible with the company’s current range of motorcycles.When launched, Triumph’s 350-450cc bikes will take on the likes of BMW 310cc range and KTM 390 models. Even when manufactured by Bajaj, these bikes won’t be as affordable as Royal Enfield bikes in international markets.Bajaj Triumph 350cc Motorcycle Spied In IndiaTriumph 350-450cc motorcycles could be launched at around £5000-£5500 price range, which is approximately Rs 4.80 lakh to Rs 5.28 lakh. Smallest capacity and most low cost Triumphs they surely will be, but not necessarily the most affordable in segment.Triumph sub-500cc scramblerTriumph is also working on a scrambler version based on the same platform. Now spied in India, Triumph’s new entry-level scrambler is equipped with larger alloy wheels, handguards, shotgun-styled upswept exhaust, split seats and dual-purpose adventure tread tyres. Rest of the bike’s profile is largely the same as that of street roadster.Bajaj Triumph 350cc Motorcycle Spied In IndiaIn India, Triumph’s new sub-500cc motorcycles could be launched at a starting price of around Rs 2 lakh. Pricing has to be competitive if Bajaj-Triumph are looking to play the numbers game with formidable rivals like Royal Enfield. Bajaj has also purchased rights to Vincent Motorcycles, a British motorcycle brand.Source More
