Bajaj Pulsar Review

31 May, 2016 12:09 PM


Pulsar family backbone lies on the 150cc and 180cc pair of Pulsars, which have been together from a decade. Both the offerings have a classic design, resembling the first Pulsar produced, keeping its spirit alive from a long time. Both have been updated with new technologies ranging from digital consoles to twin-spark technology. The 150 cc produces 14.9 BHP @ 9000 rpm with 12.5 NM @ 6500 rpm. The bigger 180 unit has 16.8 BHP @ 8500 rpm and 14.2 NM @ 6500 rpm. Both the versions have same body design with nearly equal weights and a 15 litre fuel tank. Also, both have a 5-speed transmission with them.

Pulsar 220F has been a one of its kind machine. It’s always hungry for speed and performs very efficiently whenever required. It has been one of the favourite Pulsar of all time for its semi-faired body design, differentiating it from every bike available in the market. It has a 220 cc, oil cooled engine, producing 20.8 BHP and 19.12 NM of torque. A Pulsar resembling the 150 & 180 cc Pulsars, named 220S was also launched. It had in it the power of 220cc engine and the style of 180cc segment.

About Bajaj Pulsar Brand

Bajaj Autos had a totally new ideology about the Indian motorcycle market some 15 years ago and on 24 November 2001 it was seen in the form of a new lining of motorcycles called as Bajaj Pulsar. Being a scooter based brand, Bajaj had a very tough time switching over into a new segment where the already established firms were having a very good time with their little variety of offerings. Before Pulsar, the Indian market was bent toward small engine motorcycles with no performance expectations and high mileage. Pulsar, at that time changed the traditional biking philosophy and started a new era of speed and performance.

The same spirit has been carried over by the Pulsar from last 14 years and till date; Performance and Pulsars are side by side thoughts in every mind. At the time of introduction, Pulsar's featured all the modern equipment of that time. The disc brake was a proud possession of a Pulsar owner and its muscular appeal was a dream of every teenager. Riding a Pulsar at that time was nothing less than talking to the winds and the same feel can be experienced today also. Bajaj Autos has been updating the technology from time to time and the results are crystal clear.

Bajaj has started the Pulsar with an idea of an ideal Indian performance bike with a balance of economy and sport functionality. Today the ever expanding market has many more challenges and the specificity of every segment has forced the Pulsar to change its form from a basic performance oriented machine to a specific segment competitor. The Pulsar is offered in various engine options staring from 135 cc, then 150 cc, the 180 cc, 200 cc and the favourite of all, the 220 cc. Every engine has the same Pulsar DNA; the pledge to perform remains same whether it’s the oldest one or the youngest one.

Bajaj Autos understands the need of classification of their Pulsars in such a way that everyone finds a suitable on for himself, without going through each one before purchasing. The definition of each different Pulsar lies in its name. Bajaj has coined these terms based on the segment the Pulsar belongs to and also for the purpose of its birth.

Bajaj has classified its Pulsars in every way, making it easy for us to choose what we exactly wish for. From its classic appeal to the modern day technology, Bajaj has balanced everything with its segment differentiation. Go ahead, choose yours.
