Bajaj Pulsar 135LS Ownership Review by Tanmoy

by atul on January 25, 2011

Hi Readers, I am Tanmoy Sengupta from Bikaner, Rajasthan. I am 23 years old and working in a Bank. I am here to tell you about my bike. A short review on my Bajaj Pulsar 135 LS which is 4 months old with its odo reading approx 3600 km.

Bajaj Pulsar 135 LS, A Small Intro

As we all know that Pulsar is a one of the most popular bikes in India. Pulsar has and will always be dominating high-end segments of Indian bike market viz 150 cc, 180 cc, 200 cc & above.

There was still something missing and Bajaj then launched a bike named Pulsar 135 LS to fill out the 125cc segment space of the Indian automobile market.

The Engine – At a Glimpse

Pulsar has a power packed engine of 135.6 cc with 13.5 ps @ 9000 rpm. The power & pick up of this bike is pretty well and is without a doubt above all other bikes in similar 125cc segment. This beast can even be compared to the 150cc segment bikes and I am damn sure that this little machine can outplay any 150cc bike. It also has an amazing pick up and the mean machine can go from 0 to 60 Kmph in just about 5 Secs.

Pulsar 135LS has got a 5 speed gear box that helps the bike with raw power and stability. I will have to bring to your notice that the Pulsar 135 LS can attain a top speed of 112 Kmph on highways, however you will begin experiencing vibrations as soon as you reach 85 Kmph. . The gearing ratio of this bike is also very well; one can go on 23 Kmph on 5th gear with nice torque

Bajaj’s DTS-i technology adds to this beast’s performance because the technology burns air and fuel in a better way resulting in power and increases mileage. The approx mileage in the city is 60kmpl; however, I am yet to figure out its mileage on highways. It will run 60 km in 1 liter petrol in city. But I am not noticed its average on highways. This is very decent mileage for the most powerful bike in 125 cc segment.

Looks

This bike doesn’t look similar to other Pulsars. In fact it has its own unique & sporty design. Just a glimpse and you will be able to make out that its Pulsar 135 LS. Many people say that it looks similar to XCD 135, but I don’t agree with them. It has its own classy design and I think that this is most good looking bike in its class.

Sitting position is pretty comfortable with slightly slant riding posture for rider for long journeys, however the position is not comfortable for pillion because the rear seat is high mounted in this like sports-bike. Split seats & double grab rails enhance its sporty design. Stylish new muffler, single gear leaver, air scoops on fuel tank and rear mudguard is makes this bike a style icon.

Safety & Add-ons

When a bike has decent amount of power, it has to be safe too. . Pulsar 135 is safe on high speeds due to its 240 mm front disc & 130 mm rear drum brakes. Braking system in the bike is good as you can stop the bike at any point of time without a problem. Fat rear tyre (100/90×17) helps for better grip on road. If Pulsar 135 is fitted with MPF Zapper instead of Eurogrip, it can do a much better job in terms of stability. However, Clip-on handlebar is just fine and stylish as well, this improves handling & stability.

Bajaj is popular due to new features on its bikes like digital speedo, lights on handle bar switches, pilot lamps, auto choke etc. Cockpit with digital meter looks clean and has all important info which rider need would need, like fuel gauge, big techo, battery charge indicator, high beam and turning indicators with LED.

Pulsar 135 is one bike that is a package of power, style and compactness. Its nitrox shock absorbers ensure a safe and smooth ride on bumpy and crooked roads. LED tail lights are impressive and they are visible from fat away as well.

Pros

  • 13 bhp, 0 to 60 in approx 5 sec.
  • Most powerful in its segment.
  • 60 kmpl milage.
  • Nitrox shock absorbers.
  • DTS-i & world’s first 135 cc 4 valve mill.
  • Front disc brake 240 mm, ensures safe braking.
  • Awesome design.
  • Better for city crusing & for highways too.
  • Good build quality.
  • Auto choke for easy starting in all weather conditions.

Cons

  • Light weight, only 122 kg. Starts vibrations in high speed.
  • 8 ltr small fuel tank.
  • Hard pillion seat & uncomfortable sitting position, not suitable for long journeys (for pillion only).
  • Pulsar 135 could do well with disc brake.
  • Rear view mirrors are small, not so useful

Final Verdict

Overall, if you are looking to buy a bike in 125cc segment and want your machine to be sporty as well as economic that you should go for amazing pulsar 135 LS. This beast is best in its class and even has that potential to beat any 150cc bike. This is one sports bike with commuter abilities. I just want to say that no other bike can beat this maniac now and never. Drive safe & love your ride. Please comment and let me know if you liked my review or not.

hi tanmony, lightweight of the bike is not a disadvantage of a bike , and the vibrations are not due to this lightweight of the bike, it may be due to improper weight distribution and engine harshness , but a great review about a great bike , mileage and perfomance is awesome

Reply

Gaurav January 29, 2011 at 7:39 pm

Hey I also own a Pulsar 135LS & I’ve run it about 2000km but I don’t get any vibrations now on my bike till I take it to 75Kmph & above. & its just bcoz of its lightweight & its engine that it has got the best pick-up in the segment & a good mileage buddy. So the lightweight is not actually a problem ;) Yeah I agree that it feels very light when u take it to 100Kmph :P But its good to keep a normal speed as its both safe & enjoyable on Pulsar135LS ;) Happy riding :)

Good review. I really love this bike. Pulsar 135ls.

Is that true, Tanmoy Pulsar 135 has got lights in handle bars switches ? – “Bajaj is popular due to new features on its bikes like digital speedo, lights on handle bar switches,”

Any way nice review. AWESOME BIKE.

Pulsar LS 135 is a great bike which had redefine the 125 to 135 cc segment in India. But author should think while declaring it can beat any 150 cc bike. Please have a race with rtr 160 and u will know the reality. Considering stability at high speeds, any 150 cc bike can beat p 135. A bike with 122 kgs at 115 kmph will be blown off due to the air current. I am having rtr 160 and rode other bikes like CBZ, pulsar 150. All these bikes are safe till 110 kmph. After that speed, we feel like floating in air. I didn’t rode p 135 but many other p 135 bikers tempted me to race and they lost every time.

Reply

Pulsarboy January 28, 2011 at 9:26 am

Light weight doesn’t mean bike will float in air.. by the way it’s only 8-10 kgs lighter than rest of the 150cc lot.. check R15.. which is even more lighter..

Certainly it can’t beat RTR160/P150.. that’s over the top… but it can edge out the likes of FZ-16/Unicorn/Dazzler.

Reply

JK ultimate January 28, 2011 at 12:17 pm

YOU are Correct.

Nitin January 28, 2011 at 6:40 pm

I clearly said that not only p 135, even the bikes like cbz, pulsar and apache are safe till 110 kmph. Above that, they are bit unsafe. Pulsar and cbz will weigh 150 kgs with fuel and they are not less weight. But still they are unsafe after 110 kmph. Regarding R15, the fairing is very functional and diverts most of the incoming air current. Does P135 and apaches sport fairing???? Clearly NO and thats the reason for the incoming air effect after 110 kmph. Please don’t compare these bikes with R15 on light weight basis because R15 is a mini sports bike and a real sports bike always feature great aerodynamics.

Tanmoy January 28, 2011 at 11:01 pm

Pulsarboy is correct..

Tanmoy January 28, 2011 at 9:57 pm

I mean P135 can beat many of 150cc bikes….like discover150, yamaha sz etc…
It can go 0-60 in just approx 5 sec which is equel to 150 cc bikes like Cbz, hunk etc..
Ride P135 to know more about it….

Reply

Nitin January 30, 2011 at 2:17 pm

Yesterday i have ridden p 135. I have exchanged my rtr for p 135 and i had a race with my friend on cbz X. My friend was quite surprised when i said about p 135 performance and he too rode the bike. I have posted the ride experience as a reply to the below comment. Please have a look at it.

Hello Readers,
I am Atul the one who edited the above review. I would just like to apologize to all the BikeAdvice readers for one error that went unnoticed. Most of you must have noticed that the review had a fault (which obviously is corrected now). There was a faulty sentence in the review which said ” Bajaj’s DTS-i technology adds to this beast’s performance because the technology burns air and water in a better way resulting in power and increases mileage”, this has now been changed and the water is changed to fuel.

Further, I really apologize to all the readers. The paragraph was in a flow that I couldn’t notice the error and the error went unnoticed. I will make sure that you don’t find any such minute errors in future. The error has been fixed now.

Thanks

Tanmoy January 27, 2011 at 10:26 pm

hi,

i bought a pulsar 135 in november. The bike has certain issues that are worrying me.
1. When the engine is cold, it starts with great difficulty. Around 10 kicks are required. The auto choke is not consistent (rpm keeps fluctuating) and the bike shuts down after a few seconds of running on auto choke. The engine dies when i twist the accelerator. But once the bike is running there is no problem.

Can you suggest something???

my P135 is 2 months older then urs but i’ve no problem like that. it is 1 kick start in any weather condition. even in -2 degree temp, in this winter.
dont u test drive ur bike before purchasing..??
anyways, pls tell ur prob in service center. they will definately help u…

Try adjusting your Idler clockwise about one turn or more specially in the morning. It should help get your motor running. afterwards, when you see that the RPM indicator is steady and that your motor does not stall anymore, re tune your Idler to about 1400 RPM. Try it, it works for me.

Atul Tyagi January 1, 2013 at 11:01 am

I purchase my Pulsar 135 in June it starts fine till november but now it is hell for first 15 minutes till the engine is warmed-up.

Any solution for this problem.

Few days back I found a solution that keep your ignition on for 20 minutes and then start the bike, it worked for me till now but now its Jan and winter is at its peak even this thing fails

Please help me out I am fed up with this thing in morning and evening.

@Nitin , P-135 & apache 160 are not 2 levels of biking..
They have similar 0-60 , where as rtr160 is about 2-3 secs faster to 100.
Top speed is 119 vs 115 which is nil.

2 points I would like to mnsn-

1. Economy 60 vs 45 makes p-135 33% more fuel efficient
2.Price 135 about rs 10000 cheaper than rtr

Conclusion – buying p-135 over rtr160 means a bike which is much cheaper, much more fuel efficient & at the same time delivering near identical performance.

Now, dont cry that bajaj is poor quality as TVS is no honda & so is bajaj.

Rest, you are wiser :-)

Reply

Nitin January 30, 2011 at 2:03 pm

Just going to comment on p135 test ride and saw your eye opening comparison !!!! My rtr delivers a mileage of 57 kmpl in city conditions when the speed is maintained around 60 kmph. Please correct the mileage, 45 kmpl mileage is delivered when the bike is ridden at 80 to 100 kmph under hard acceleration and gear shifts at 5k to 6k rpm.

Now coming to performance….. forget about rtr, we compared with cbz X and starting from the first gear, cbz dominated the race. The race was on NH 9 for 18 km. I boarded p135 along the onward trip and my friend on the return journey. I was very close but didn’t dominated the cbz till 80 kmph. After 80 kmph, cbz advanced and i didn’t come close to it thereafter.

Now coming to top speed, cbz X has light vibrations at 115 kmph and p 135 reached 110 kmph with high vibrations. RTR 160 also has vibrations but will start after 110 kmph. In p 135, vibrations have started at 90 kmph and from 100 kmph their intensity is enough to numb the feet. From 100 kmph onward the stability of the bike deteriorated and i had to settle with the 110 kmph top speed.The bike can even go more but with no stability and numbed feet, risk should be taken to attain it.

Regarding quality, i have commented many times on bike advice that engine longevity will depend on the maintenance. I also commented that bajaj and tvs engines are unrefined compared to japanese engines. So please use your wise comment against the people who cries tvs is greater than bajaj.

Now don’t say this is unfair competition between 135 and 150 cc machines. This comparison is started in the review itself by stating P135 CAN OUTPLAY ANY 150 CC BIKE. I cruised at 100 kmph without any vibrations for non stop 2 hours 45 minutes on my rtr and the bike never experienced any power loss. On p135, cruising at 100 kmph for 18 kms numbed my feet and can’t imagine to do it for 2 hours and 45 minutes. This is the difference between 135 and 150 or 160 machines and you will always get what you pay for.

yo man January 30, 2011 at 10:00 pm

@mr. nitin
Well, i too ride my 135 @ 100 , there are vibes , but not feet numbing or anything serious.

it goes till 123 @ 10k rpm after which limiter cuts in, even at such high speed the engine does NOT feel stressed, this i think is a huge accomplishment for a small capacity engine .

By the way my harsh riding style it gives me about 58kmpl , which when ridden below 60 gave me 69 kmpl , left me amazed!

It is perfectly stable @ 110 after which its not so solid , the reason being the poor eurogrip tyres which come with it , it has improved with the new zappers which are now supplied with it.

I have ridden nearly all the bikes including apache 150 & 160 . The performance difference was NOT measurable b/w rtr160 & p135 , infact p-135 is more rev happy!!

The bike which i felt 1 step ahead of p-135 is p-200, really smooth & torque ladden engine it has..

I had a budget of 80-90 k of which i cud hv buyed many other more expensive ones , but im Happy to have gone with this little rocket of mine.

Barring bikes like R15 , P-135 is the most advanced & best balanced 2wheeler in india today.

Bajaj, you deserve a pat on your back :)

Nitin January 31, 2011 at 8:52 pm

Nice to hear that u are satisfied with the bike. You felt p 135 is more revv happy than rtr 160. Thats ur view. Its of no harm but i am surprised at this comment. I shouldn’t drag this conversation because both of us have experienced these bikes and still differ in views. So have fun on ur P135. Ride safe and have lots of fun :)

Hello fello pulsar, heard the reviews here and they are great, i amy riding a pulsar 180 and 200 and now bought a pulsar 135cc. Fantastic bike to ride compared to the 180 and 200 although the exhaust pipes for the 200 looks so much cooler so what i did was bought a 200 pipe and replace it on my 180. as for my 135, i decided to modify the body and converted it to a touring bike consisting of 2 side boxes, main back box, under belly pipe guard, 0w40s engine oil and modified k&n oil filter and also change the sproket to a size 30 compared to the original 41. If you notice at 5 gear at rpm 6, the 135 maintains a speed of 70km/hr but at a size 30 sproket,it maintains at 90km/hr at rpm6 so you safe fuel more on distance. pick up a little slow but who cares for a self conversion long distance bike. do contact me at gerard_bakar@hotmail.com to see pictures and tips on modification if you want and be happy to serve you and give you tips. cheers ppeps. gerard here………………

Viswanathan February 19, 2011 at 12:22 pm

Hi readers/Advisors,
I am Viswanathan from Chennai, purchased P-135 LS Bike around 20 days back and facing a problem of starting time because of auto-choke system. Engine get started and RPM Fluctuating , then if we don’t give acceleration, engine get-OFF. Also engine don’t respond to the movement of bike like if we go at 10~15KMPH, some times engines get-OFF at even smooth acceleration (I guess auto choke issue). What optimal action i can take against this issue? I feel vibrations while at speed of 50KMPH also at near to my thigh and foot. Total mileage covered as of 275Km only. Is it possible to change the auto choke to manual. or any other betterr one? Can any one tell me the gear ratio of speed?

Reply

nEpHop February 20, 2011 at 4:04 am

I just want to ask how good is this bike for long journeys of about 300kms only thing i wish this bike had was biger fuel capacity just like older pulsars of 15 litters instead of 8 which is not good enough for loung journeys i would also like to ask if this bike is good at hilly roads or areas please reply thanx.

Reply

gerard February 21, 2011 at 4:35 am

Hello Tanmoy, yes changing the sproket to a very low number does help in the fuel saving of this bike. you will see and feel the difference when you change so you might want to consider to change to a lower number like 34 or 32.The original fitment allows you to change to a min of 30 and maz of 42 or so i think for the highest number. Check with your bike shope for more details as here in Singapore, the bike shop is quite good and they can do a lot for my bike. I do not know about the shops in India.

Hello Viswanathan, The auto choke is a good thing for this bike and there is no change from auto to manual. The reason why your bike dies everytime you ride is because not for the auto choke but the rider. I face the same problem as you until i found out what the problem was. Its not the BIKE….Its the RIDER. Try this, everytime you start the bike, turn on the engine at let the engine run for about a min or 2 till the bike warms up. It should maintain at 15 rpm if it does not, adjust your rpm manualy till it revolves at 1500rpm a min when idol. if it is below that your bike will stall and if it is abpove that, your bike will use more petrol,becomes noisy and vibrates a lot. Give it a try………….

@riaz, yes, of-course it is gud for long drive, but only for rider. Pillion seat is not good for long drive coz rear seat is high-mounted & hard. But with little break in every 1 hr will make pillion easy.
P135 is delivering milage of 55-60 in city with avg speed of 55-60 kmph, as per my experience in highways it will deliver more then 60 kmpl with speed 55-60 kmph. Im sure about that.

Hey I own a Pulsar which is a year old, its a awesome bike, in the highways I have achieved 115kmph with it, didn’t feel anything, was just riding, truly awesome experience. But mine doesn’t give more than 45kmpl.

Reply

nvs March 27, 2012 at 3:28 pm

pulsar 135 is currently the 3 rd bike which is fastest than many machines 150 cc
1. rtr 160
2.p150
3.p135
4.cbz and hunk
5.fz
power to weight ratio of p135 is 111 ps per tonne similar to karizma zmr 113 ps
iam not pretending it to compare it with zmr as it will be unfair.
fz is heavy and 14 bhp power is not adequate with d price
cbz is good but need power upgrade
p150 rtr 160 are 15.1 and 15.2 ps high end performance 150 cc bikes.
i must say pulsar 135 is very good indeed p135 is light sports than pulsar 150 commuter

Hi, I am a Pulsar 135 (Rouser 135 here in the Philippines) owner. We here in the Philippines always go beyond the original capabilities of the Pulsar 135. Some of our bikes can reach 135Kph to 150Kph on stock form. Some of our best homegrown mechanics can, with some trade secrets, make this bike in par with the RTR 160 and even some 200cc bikes. And to comment on the above info by an RTR 160 user, if you want to race a real Pulsar/Rouser 135, try us in the Philippines. Well, we do have issues with the bike, but they being fixed and taken care of by us, some individually, while some in the Kawasaki plant that imported the bike here in our country. You may want to check out our Group, Rouser Club of the Philippines (RCP) for some news and info and modifications we are doing for this great bike. Mabuhay to you all…

By the way for issues with the Idle, try to have the A/F setup correctly, on my end, I open the Air for 3 1/2 turns, and then adjust the Fuel until its on the 1500rpm. Never had an issue with it since. For fuel, I use Shell Nitro Racing or Petron Blaze 100octane. For engine shut downs, check the way you ride, I have been to places here in our country with this bike and no issues with it.Vibrations can be fixed by fine tuning. All bikes have issues, it will be on the owner of the bike to tune it up to fix these issues. If you do not love the sport or the bike, then its not the bike that is the problem but you, the owner. Just my 2cents.

engine vibration is due to refinement problem not light weight. pillion seat has less space for cushion , we can increase the cushion but the height increases. bike’s gear box is likely to get damaged so be ready for it. always use shell helix oil for better performance and smooth ride.( noticeable change )
