Bajaj Pulsar 150 cc Review

Pulsar 150 is one among the most popular motorcycle from the house of Bajaj Auto.  Born in 2001, the model has been a runaway hit among the youth of India since then. There have been a number of upgrades and cosmetic changes to the model but the fact remains that it is still the top selling Bajaj motorcycle.

Lets take a brief journey through the technology, specifications, fuel efficiency, pluses and shortcomings of the most popular Pulsar model from Bajaj.

Technology:  The motorcycle comes with DTSi (Digital Twin Spark Ignition) technology in which there are two spark plugs per engine cylinder. Another striking special in Pulsar is the Exhaus TEC technology. Exhaus TEC enables the vehicle to pull even at low speeds thus making the riding easy by not demanding frequent gear shifts in high traffic conditions.

Specifications: As the very name suggests, Pulsar 150 comes with a 150cc (149 to be specific) single cylinder air-cooled  4 stroke engine. Equipped with Nitrox dual rear supension and 135mm telescopic front fork with anti friction brushes it can give the rider the best in terms of riding comfort.  The fuel tank capacity is 15 ltrs.

Coming to the fuel efficiency department, you can expect a mileage of 50-55 kms per ltr in actual riding conditions which is pretty decent for a 150cc bike.

Pluses : Good pick up, Decent mileage, Good Design, Great riding comfort

Shortcomings: No rear disc brakes option, Slightly hard gear shifting. (when compared to other bikes in its class)
