Bajaj Auto has silently launched the Pulsar 150 Classic in India at Rs 67,437 ex-showroom Mumbai. It looks like the Pulsar 150 from 2007 sans the tank extensions, graphics, split seat as well as the now available rear disc. Bajaj has perhaps added this trim now to lower the starting price of the Pulsar 150. The Bajaj Pulsar 150 range now has the Classic, the regular Pulsar with a single disc at the front and the Pulsar with a disc brake at the back as well. Only the Pulsar 135LS is a tad more affordable than the Classic 150, at Rs 64,589. The motorcycle will shortly available for sale across India.
It is being said that the Bajaj Pulsar 150 Classic doesn’t get a demotion as far as the power and torque numbers are concerned. The 150cc BS-IV engine still carries twin spark plugs and is fed by a carburettor to make 14PS of power and 13.4Nm of torque. A 5-speed gearbox is also carried over. A 240mm disc brake at the front and a 130mm drum at the rear handle retardation duties. There is no ABS or CBS added here because the government rules specify that all new models to follow this mandate and since the Classic is just a trim, it doesn’t need to have one.
There is no change to chassis or the MRF tyres and the fuel tank capacity too stays the same at 15 litres. The new Bajaj Pulsar 150 Classic could weigh a tad lower given the equipment which has been removed. It still has the same digital meter that is available in the other Pulsar 150s. The motorcycle will compete with the Honda Unicorn 150 as well as the Hero Achiever in smaller towns and villages.
