Bajaj Pulsar 135cc DTSi to be Launched by Dec. 9th!

by Deepak on November 25, 2009

As promised by Rajiv Bajaj, Bajaj Auto is all set to kick a new war in the commuter segment with the launch of an all new 135cc premium commuter bike within a fortnight. The best part is the fact that Bajaj is branding the new bike with their flagship brand name, Pulsar. With its launch in November 2001, Pulsar has seen all engine variants from 150 to 180, Fuel Injected to Carbureted! and now welcome the youngest member to the family. Get ready to see a smaller Pulsar (135) running beside you very soon. According to the details we have with us, the bike is almost the similar XCD Sprint that Bajaj showcased in the Auto Expo in 2008 (and since then has kept us waiting).

Bajaj Pulsar 135 DTSi

The bike is essentially targeted at the college going youth who wants best of both the worlds (power & mileage) along with scintillating looks to attract his girls. That means this bike would compete directly with Honda Stunner and Yamaha Gladiator and with a pretty strong backing from the Pulsar family brand it sure is poised to give these long termers a tough fight.

The bike would sport the similar looking mean bikini fairing (similar to the Sprint displayed in the Auto Expo) along with a fairly newly crafted tank which draws its cues from Discover 135 and yes it has lost the masculine look of the Pulsars traditional tank which they have been carrying all the way since 2001.

Pulsar 135cc Tail LightThe rear part is made extremely sleek which adds to the overall sexy dynamics of the bike. The grab rail is also pointed split type. However, the fantastically crafted dotted LED tail- light looks superb. The bike has shed the traditional rear mud guards. In place, Bajaj has allowed only a number plate assembly to tinker; the (mud) guarding duties would be done by a tyre hugger. The whole rear assembly seems inspired from sports bikes and looks neat and gorgeous. The bike also sports rear set foot pegs for a sporty stance along with a pretty short (smaller in size) up swept exhaust. Tank extensions are absolutely fresh in design and imbibe the bike with a royal touch. The turn indicators are pointed arrow head similar to XCD 135s. Gas charged NITROX shock absorbers, all black styling, digital speedometer, 100 section rear tyre all are standard now on all Pulsars and will be present on this bike as well, however, we expect a little different instrument console from Bajaj on this bike. The disk set up is also bigger than the existing XCD 135. The side panels would be in contrasting colors (at least on the Black color).

The engine is expected to be a retuned version of the existing XCD 135 and the way Bajaj is promoting this bike we expect significant bumps in low and mid range torque! We expect the pricing to be in the region of 55-57k on road Pune. By unveiling this bike, Bajaj has cleared its intentions that it no longer wants to be a second largest player in the country; beware Hero Honda! As the company launches this bike we will keep you posted about the accurate information, till then stay tuned :)

Bajaj Pulsar 150, 180, 220 and I was expecting a Pulsar 250. Pulsar 135!!!??

Then What? Bajaj Pulsar 100, Pulsar 50 and Pulsar 10? :(

How about a Bajaj Pulsar Cycle! 0cc DTSi :D


dinesh November 25, 2009 at 10:14 am

Yes! I’m eagerly waiting for Pulsar 0cc ;)


Tushal November 25, 2009 at 10:32 am

The bike may be good, but why use Pulsar brand. They can create a new brand or call it as Discover Street or something. They themselves are killing their brands. Didnt expect this kind of strategy. And the icing on the bad cake – it will have the DTS-Si engine, not the big DTSi engine. Have no more workds to say.


Rathish November 25, 2009 at 11:41 am

One thing is sure, they are sure to lose the brand name Pulsar, which has its own status. By adding the name to each and every new piece, it is sure to bring down the supreme status. Yes of course as mentioned above, we can expect a pulsar electric bike in the coming years with “a good top speed” of 45 km/h.


Raghav November 25, 2009 at 12:22 pm

Instead of going forward, idiots working at bajaj who call themselves engineers are going backwards, i wouldnt be suprised he they launch bajaj Chetak dts-fi. i believe pulsar 220 dts-i is the max. they can do .


harsh November 25, 2009 at 12:23 pm

ha ha ha….
very funny.
chutiya salla


Deepak November 25, 2009 at 12:36 pm

Bajaj is so unprofessional. If you go to the videos section, a YouTube clip comes up. When you go to see that video in YouTube, the username is 007bikerdude. The video also sucks.


Rathish November 25, 2009 at 12:57 pm

The only Indian company has power and technology to compete with the international brands, and sure they can and they will and whole country has a lot of faith in them. So, it is up to them to make the bond stronger.


Pulsar boy November 25, 2009 at 2:15 pm

Looks like Bajaj got bold after tasting success with Discover 100 cc. They might look to repeat the same.. fingers crossed!!


Bharath Kumar November 25, 2009 at 3:03 pm

Yes Deepak,
Even I was expecting something big from Bajaj. A new avatar for 220 or 150/180, but this is a rubbish. Really a Disappointment for bajaj fans.


prady November 25, 2009 at 3:42 pm

bajaj going ruin the brand name pulsar. bajaj going to suck big time

Reply November 25, 2009 at 5:34 pm

Only time will tell what is the truth, till then we have to wait and watch.


yammy November 25, 2009 at 6:43 pm

first de switched back frm fuel injection 2 carb… now de drop the engine power… wat the hell.. i thought de wud get bak the 200cc again… bajaj’s going bak in tym…

bajaj pulsar–> definitely chakka…hahaha


sai November 25, 2009 at 8:02 pm

how do u kno dat its a 135cc? i heard that a new 200cc will b releasing soon!


Vinay Kiran November 25, 2009 at 8:39 pm

A Pulsar 135 will definately bring the Pulsar mania to the halt. We have been expecting something bigger in Pulsar, say 250cc, now what is this Pulsar 135cc? Probably Bajaj is working on a twin cylinder 135×2 = 300cc Pulsar.


CarAdvice November 25, 2009 at 11:03 pm

Bajaj has just lost its mind!


DHIRAJ C RAUT November 25, 2009 at 11:15 pm

guys let the bike launch….then we will decide whether they have been intelligent or fools….it just like andhere mein teer marna type thing you guys are doing…


ANSHUL November 25, 2009 at 11:22 pm

I think bajaj is taking a wrong step and try to demoralize the fans of it.or trying to just encash the brand name of pulsar and make fool to the public.


Dinesh November 26, 2009 at 10:35 am

Listen Guys, they simply want to increase their revenue and nothing else, we guys here speak out what we felt. If discover 100cc is really a big hit(I don’t know), after this might be they got some new business strategies. SIMPLE! YAAR INDIA HAI, CHUTIYA BANAO PAISA KAMAO.
Similar to bollywood movies, they desired to earn a lot by giving such a crap, always same plot. AUR INDIA HAI , DEKHTA HAI. If once people change their mind how the hell they dare to make us fool. The silver industry here can’t even think how the Hollywood do.


fas November 26, 2009 at 10:39 am

Dhiraj, you can check the internet for all the pics of the bike, they are already out!


Tushal November 26, 2009 at 10:59 am

I think it cannot be 200 but only 135. The website says beat the traffic, not beat the hightways.


Shaiju B November 26, 2009 at 11:13 am

Sure, they are going to ruin the Pulsar brand name. This is poor strategy. The bike doesnt live upto the Pulsar brand name in terms of loooks. Still have to wait for more pics.


True Lover November 26, 2009 at 11:18 am

guys just wait n watch till now Bjaja doing all good steps to become the no. 1 in India… lets hope all goes well … lets see what we will get on 19th Dec 2009.

You never know with the Bajaj..



DHIRAJ C RAUT November 26, 2009 at 9:13 pm


yea even i checked it after posting my comment… is the xcd sprint 135…..but bajaj renamed it pulsar….but the one they showcased in autoexpo was more good looking…..perhaps the colour combination was good………….


Insanebiker November 27, 2009 at 5:36 pm

Pants off to bajaj for this move, WHY THIS MOVE?
1. Disc125 – dead
2. XCD125 Dead
3. Platina125 DTS-Si Non seller
3. XCD135 – flop in just two months
4. D135 – flop within one year

So Bajaj doesn’t want to use either XCD nor Disc, instead they are using Pulsar and avoid brand building costs of ‘SPRINT’.

Bajaj MOST desperate company in India, willing to do anything to sell !!


Deeno December 1, 2009 at 3:48 pm

I think Yamaha has gone a long way in terms of launching new bikes. Right from R15 to FZ16, FZS and now Fazer, they certainly know the requirements and taste of Indian Bikers. Yamaha have been launching new bikes with latest technology, style, power and new looks. Bajaj has gone many steps behind, they have changed from Fule injected to carburator and now they are ready to spoil the brand of Pulsar by launching P135. They should have launch 250cc.
I am waiting for Yamaha bikes of 180cc to 250cc….


13biker December 2, 2009 at 1:54 pm

bajaj is becoming a f***ing brand in india.pulsar 135 is the signal for that.they are still now in indian market because of their pulsar it seems to be the pulsar also going to become a _________


Murali Manoharan December 10, 2009 at 3:24 pm

Bajaj’s strategy will be sticking to Pulsar Brand. This happens with all major auto makers. Honda has retained the name “City” even after launching a car based on entirely different platform than the old City. As the Pulsar is sucessful brand even today, there is no surprise, bajaj wants to stick to it. In case of Discover 100cc DTS-si, the same discover layout is retained with lesser engine capacity. there is a logic for sucess. But with Pulsar 135cc being entirely new bike with just the name “Pulsar”… we have to wait at watch. I haven’t seen the bike in person. So it is inappropriate to comment it now. Hope the fit and finish will be good though not better now.


Vijay December 12, 2009 at 1:25 am

It will be the poor man’s Pulsar… but the looks are exciting


sumit jain December 16, 2009 at 3:05 pm

that’s great. I am thiking about for purchases a bike. this is really good news from bajaj that they launch this bike. now i will purchased it.. its so fantastic. because this rate between 51000 to 54000 in jaipur and this mileage is very good.


SRIRAM December 16, 2009 at 4:32 pm

Dear guys this is something rubbish from yours comments……..still middle people are living india,they also have interest to buy pulsar….so this is such wounderful idea……..i welcome it………..


jabeen December 17, 2009 at 11:29 am

vasanth December 18, 2009 at 7:01 pm

Navneet December 25, 2009 at 3:39 pm

rahul January 6, 2010 at 11:35 am

much hype abt this 135cc machine.i had a test drive last weekend.i expected alot from this baby and felt glad as it was as per my expectations also but lacked few qualities on the way to excellence. is not comfortable.sure back pain complaints after 2-3 years
2.all the parts r’s damaged even the tyre slip’s[exeption:->bajaj spares r inexpensive]
3.didnt like the headlight.looks awkward!!!! isn’t it..

yes except this all the features r taken care.i was waiting for the delivery of this baby for 9 months but wanna have patience and wait for next model wit better ingredients!!!


san_ju January 15, 2010 at 11:38 am

chethan January 27, 2010 at 3:57 pm

can anyone tell bout topspeed of bajaj pulsar 135cc


sandesh January 30, 2010 at 7:03 pm

Pulsar brand name effect his brand in selling because the bike purchase by name and his look but stratergy of bajaj has overtake market in all segment so wait and watch


chethan b r February 4, 2010 at 9:26 am

As told by some people, it might dissapoint people who go only for styling, but it will surely be liked by people who want both styling and mileage.
i was worrying which one to buy under 60k and discover was only d option, but i changed my mind after seeing this. i am gonna buy this as even the technical specifications are good…
wat say…


Kaustov February 7, 2010 at 6:10 pm

The pulsar 135 is a nice bike. It’s even better than fz16 in open stretches.


Varghese February 17, 2010 at 11:46 am

Ya….its a good decision to launch Bajaj Pulsar135….its look like a fighting bike also with great milage of 65km/litre….go……


Amit March 1, 2010 at 1:35 pm

Hello guys!!! What else you want in range of 55k-60k?? this bike is having good milage of 60-65km/ltr. aut nd looks like monster for young india who wants to wear style.
But I must say seat is not very comfortable,
aur ab kar bhi kya sakta hoon.. I already bought.. lol


dx army March 7, 2010 at 12:52 pm

I agree with deepak…………….frnds


chethan March 8, 2010 at 4:01 pm

The problem it has is the vibration at high speeds.
isint it amit?
share ur review……….plz
i havent biught yet


Prakash Kumar April 6, 2010 at 5:50 pm

The problem is that i bought this bike as my first bike . Sure it has a vibration above 42 KMPH speed. But we can manage it 50 which is a decent speed . But i have not tested the mileage yet. Any comments aboutthe mileage.


venkatesh May 6, 2010 at 10:38 am

i bought the pulsar 135cc bike last month march. it very comportable.very good style.



terry June 19, 2010 at 9:36 pm

hi everyone
this bike is really good in terms of milage and in power
its top speed is 115kmph but can go upto 120kmph
as everyone knows higher speed = lesser milage and so on lesser speed = more milage. @80kmph it give milage of 45km to 50km and can give more than 68kmpl at speed between 45kmph to 50kmph (fule ecomomy speed).


chethan June 20, 2010 at 1:27 pm

@ Terry,

How about vibrations at high speeds?
Tat was the reason i didnt opt for pulsar 135…….


terry July 9, 2010 at 7:09 pm

well i think so when u need more power so there is vibration
@ speed of 90kmph u can fell the vibrations more as compared to other pulsar because of its weight that is why it vibrates
according to me weight should be kept according to its power like other pulsar but then because of lesser weight and more power stunts can be performed with ease.
and at last bajaj should keep power and weight balanced.


arjun September 11, 2010 at 10:30 am

i going to buy the bike. i like very much…


rajkumar July 6, 2011 at 2:08 pm

looks very amazing…


shoaib qamar July 24, 2011 at 12:10 am

guys please suggest me weather i go with pulsar 135 or passion pro…
