Pulsar 150 Classic Arrives in Showrooms
THE CLASSIC EDITION IS ESSENTIALLY THE SAME BIKE AS THE EXISTING Pulsar 150 but does not sport a rear disc, split seat, or fuel-tank extensions, and is only available in black, and without any graphics. These changes have helped the Pulsar 150 Classic drop its asking price by Rs 10,118; sitting well below the Pulsar 150 twin-disc version. The overall design of the Classic seems to be closer to the previous-generation Bajaj Pulsar 150 UG III that was launched back in 2006.
The Classic edition is identical to the standard Pulsar 150, and continues to be powered by a 149-cc dual-spark motor, mated to a fivespeed gearbox. The single-cylinder engine produces 14 PS at 8,000 rpm and 13.4 Nm of torque at 6,000 rpm. Being a lower-cost version of an existing model, rather than an all-new one, the Pulsar 150 Classic does not sport ABS, a feature which, as it is, is not offered on any Pulsar 150 model for now. To begin with, the Pulsar 150 Classic is only available in select regions.
