Bajaj Pulsar 180cc DTSi Review

by Deepak on October 8, 2008

Pulsar is a major hit in the market and you know that it comes in four variants. It had created a huge stir in the Indian automobile market in its initial launch year, 2002. The four variants include Pulsar 150 DTSi, Pulsar 180 DTSi, Pulsar 200 DTSi and Pulsar 220 DTSi. Believe me, Pulsars are designed for guys that love high-speed action on road.

Looks and Styling: Bajaj Pulsar 180cc is elegant in its looks with aerodynamic shape. It has a flush-fitted tail lamp and thank GOD no tail lamp protuberances. The bike has an LCD speedo and tachometer console. It’s the fuel tank of Pulsar 180cc that gives the muscular shaped body to it. . The tank of Pulsar extends downwards touching the engine head almost.

The black styling provides the bike a sleek as well as subtle aggression. It has a scanty dashboard layout and has a lighter yet stronger alloy wheels that call for low maintenance, as it wouldn’t rust. Switches are convenient for use and there is a tacho; a beam flasher. The posture of Bajaj Pulsar 180cc is so flexible and the bike has a proportionate blend of style and functionality. On the whole, the bike is good in its looks, feel, handling as well as mileage.

Performance: Bajaj Pulsar DTSi has a throttle-actuated ignition control system that works together with a chip-controlled digital capacitor discharge ignition system and this gives accurate ignition time under any condition that in turn optimizes the load-bearing capacity of the engine. The dual-spark design accelerates and evens out flame propagation resulting in more efficient combustion and thereby resulting in a greater performance. The newly designed exhaust complies with the EURO 2005 norms. The 180cc engine of Pulsar delivers maximum power of 16.5bhp @ 8000 rpm and a torque of 15.22Nm @6000 rpm. ExhausTEC technology improves torque of the engine. The engine is powered to carry higher loads.

The stronger alloy wheel coupled with a long wheelbase of 1330mm enhances the stability of the bike and also makes it more agile. One can sit with ease on the bike. Shock absorption is quite good and vibrations are reduced to minimum. The engine is improved with a stable chassis, a new design magnesium alloy wheel and Nitrox shock absorbers, rear suspension with triple-rated springs are some noteworthy features of Pulsar 180cc.

The Nitrox or nitrogen-assisted rear gas shock absorber and the triple-rated springs are meant to handle extreme road conditions and terrain. The pillion seating is comfortable and the bike provides a mileage of about 45-50kmpl.

The fuel efficiency is decent if not astounding running 45-50 km per every liter of fuel. The acceleration of this bike is excellent and linear and enough power on all the gears. The gearing for the first two gears is short that enables the bike for fast changes and good acceleration. The clutch system is improved than the older version. The neat silencer routing ensure the minimum number of turns for exhaust gases while the all-chrome upswept silencer is mounted parallel to the rear sub-frame gives a sporty look.

Final Verdict: The Bajaj Pulsar 180 is a package for young brigade and is a powerhouse with sensational 125kmph top speed. The bike performs well at all speeds and cornering is something commendable. The bike using Digital Twin Technology Ignition (DTSi), Ignition with Digital CDI, Twin Spark Plugs and a third-generation Throttle Responsive Ignition Control System should never let you down as you carry your honey!


Displacement: 179cc
Engine: Air Cooled, 2 Plug
Maximum Power: 16.70ps@8500rpm
Maximum Torque: 15.22nm@6000rpm
Gears: 5 Speed
Weight: 140.00 kg
Fuel Tank: 15.00 ltrs
Wheelbase: 1330.00 mm

The review is good and accurate, I am impressed.
Riding P-180 since last two years, I can vouch on that.
P-180 is a bike which has never dissapointed me, it has done well beyond its so called role.
It is great in traffic, on highways, on bad roads.
Clutch is not like typical bajaj clutches, no (thunk) noises when clutch is released.
Gearbox is not silent like unicorn, but better than other Bajaj bikes.
Acceleration is addictive, and top speed good, but not used much on our bad roads/highways.
Braking powerful for nearly all situations.
Check oil level after 2000kms if you ride heavily, and don’t over-inflate tyres.
First two gears are short, so change them quickly if you are in a drag race, and then 3rd-4th-5th gears can be stretched more.
Using only rear brakes at high speeds can lock rear wheel so use both front and rear progressively.
To save fuel, stay in 40-50 in 5th gear, if you are going lower then 35-40 then stay in 4th gear.
Thats all for now. Enjoy. Keep up the good work.


jagjeet singh October 10, 2008 at 8:58 am

what are your views should a person go bajaj pulsar 150cc or yamaha fz 16 153cc.


Deepak October 10, 2008 at 9:18 am

Jagjeet, Pulsar is an old model. If you have a choice, go for the latest one. Anyway, Yamaha FZ16 is much better than Pulsar.


Abhishek October 14, 2008 at 1:26 pm

I am confused over buying pulsar 180 or fz 16 , comparing the mileage, comfort for driving , power….? I don’t know whats the mileage of fz 16..Please help me out.

Pulsar 180cc le lo Bhai.


Deepak November 13, 2008 at 11:48 pm

If you ride more in the city go for FZ16. If you want to ride in highways too you can go for Unicorn. I prefer Yamaha and Honda rather than Bajaj and TVS. There is great difference between indian and foreign companies.


Akshay July 2, 2011 at 10:32 am

Dude evem em confused a lot.. Em struck b/w pulsar 180 & Fazer..can u help me????

Actually i want a power byke with decent mileage , like atleast 40 km per liter in city. I like Pulsar 200 but than doubt its mileage efficency. I am also confused between current 150 cc bikes by different companies. Pls advice me a bike with decent mileage and performance within 150 cc to 200 cc segment.


Deepak November 24, 2008 at 5:54 am

Hey Saurabh, I would recommend FZ16 for you!

Between Pulsar 180 and RTR 160 REFRESH… which is better and why ??


Bharat March 8, 2009 at 6:53 pm

Hey kk,u go in 4 d apache bcoz f its superb acceleration and handling.
As far as pulsar is concerned,it is too common and too boring


anju March 16, 2009 at 12:40 pm

i would suggest p180 and i think its best in its class(price)
got very good accn than fz16 and better control and less vibration than rtr…it may be old to market but no other bike can compete p180…


Ashish March 24, 2009 at 9:12 pm

Amit, Vikas & Abhi20 It,s always better to take Pulsar 180 among which u all are confused. Pulsar 180 is a good combination of looks, mileage, power and handling. FZ16 has bad mileage.


Prabhakar March 26, 2009 at 10:09 pm

Hi frnds… i am going to buy a new pulsar 180cc in next month…

Saurabh April 8, 2009 at 8:41 pm

Hi i am confused between pulsar 180,200 and fz16 which would best in terms of power comfort looks and mileage please help me for selection.


Sai April 14, 2009 at 1:37 am

Hi Guys, I am glad i am not confused abt which bike like most of you guys. After riding RX100 for 11 yrs, my only reason to replace it with FZ16 was that, its a modern RX. Mind-blowing acceleration & amazing handling. Never really cared about mileage. If you are still confused, do i thing!! take all the bikes on a test-drive & try accelerating at long-turns & see how long can you keep up, FZ16 is the only bike, that gives the rider the confidence to just keep pushing like RX100 used to. While riding my RX100, i always wondered why everyone felt so uncomfortable riding there bikes during heavy traffic,while i was so confident with my RX (like most other RX riders), then i assumed its probably because mines a 2 stroke & this was always in my mind while buying the FZ, that i might not be able to handle city traffic the same way & i might have to ride like the pulsars (zooming on open roads, but choking at traffic junctions), but after i got my confidence with my FZ, i was amazed to see that i could handle traffic the same way i used to with my RX, plus it also zooms on empty streets. Hows that possible? well either Yamaha riders are exceptionally good bikers, or Yamaha makes such amazing machinery. I better stop here, hope i have given enough facts. If you are a true racer you might already understood what i mean.

Oh!!! & for the moron (in one of the above comments) who was muttering abt FZ not having a kick, Why dont you add your same logic & add that rotating rod that cars used to have in the 50s. Yamaha makes best machinery & we dont care a damn if the bike doesnt start for a day, we can do the same thing we do for cars Jumpstart it…


munish April 14, 2009 at 2:01 am

i disagree wid u dude.,.,.,!!!!!!!!!!!!


What is this U Want to know April 27, 2009 at 10:38 pm

Hi Munish,

What do you mean by ‘i disagree wid u dude.,.,.,!!!!!!!!!!!!’ – Buttler english.
Which school did you learn english.
You talk like ‘Slum dog’.
I am sure you do not have Licence.
I am sure you have LL (Lalu panju) licence.

Ok know dont feel bad DUDE.
I will explain this to you.
Pulsar is very good bike made out of Scooter.
Have you seen its latest version.
Oh no , OH No, Oh no. I knew you have not seen.

Ia m sure you have not seen.
Then buy, NANO car- which has Engine of Pulsar.
but insterestingly it has 4 wheels.



hmmmnz April 28, 2009 at 4:17 pm

I’m slightly amused with the comment above,
hassling another person, not only about their poor grasp of english when your own is so obviously lacking as well,
but the fact that you make insinuations about their having or not having a licence just by the way that they spell.
kind of hipercritical don’t you think???

now my opinions of these bikes, having only visited india, i can’t say im impressed with the pulsar the honda or the yamaha equivilents, the bikes are choked up trying to meet euro emmision standards, atleast the yamaha and honda are still using a carburetor. so if you decide to get rid of the terribly restrictive exhaust system, you can atleast re-jet it and gain a couple of hp in the progess.
the fz is by far and away the best looking, but does that make up for it being so slow???
the best bet for proformance(bar buying a decent sized bike) would be to ignore all the small capicity 4 stroke bikes and stick with the tryed and true 2 strokes, getting more power out of them is easy, a quick port and polish and an expansion chamber coupled with a re-jet will usually gain 5-10hp.

thats all, have fun :D


Dhar April 28, 2009 at 9:44 pm

Hello guys!! i am going to buy a bike by this month.. but i am confused between new pulsar180,apache 160fi..ould you suggest me between these two,,,, i swa the new pulsar 180 2009…. looks awesome resembling pulsar 200… would you guys pl give me a good suggestion… pl mail me at

Hye guys,

I am planning to buy new bike and it is first time I m going for bike….(I m upgreading from Cycle to bike now LOL)…

As I m 5.5” tall and which bike is good for my personality. I have love on Pulsar 180 CC,Apache 150 rtr(I heard that service is not good and bike has lot of probles like virbation, grear shit, oil leak etc), FZ I like its style but not sure about my personality. I m looking a bike with good milage,stylish look and no much issue. Pls suggest me..



rajesh.m January 18, 2011 at 3:38 pm

i think that you have already planned to take bajaj pulsar180 so better go with it coz i took p180 a couple of months back and am enjoying it. it is the only bike which suits all kinda boys either tall or medium or short.


Sankalp Singh May 1, 2009 at 4:58 pm

I am confuse between Pulsar 180 cc DTSi and Yamaha FZ-S
Pls help me out on this…


baradwaj May 10, 2009 at 11:40 pm

hi guys. i am gonna buy a bike in a month or 2. i have thought of yamaha r15, pulsar 180, pulsar 200, karizma. i am quite confused though i did some internet surfing. some comments stick to supporting the pulsar, some others support r15 and some karizma or enfield and so on. please help me out. i want it mainly for long distance riding in the city. am not thinking of highways at all. mileage is also considered a criteria. thanks in advance


rajesh.m January 18, 2011 at 3:42 pm

all the above said brands are unique in different categories.. karizma may not have what pulsar have and vice-versa. so go with what your mind suggests.. i own a p180cc and couple of my friends too.. we are enjoying its performance.. it doesnt mean that am telling you to buy p180… but do what your mind suggests.. enjoy your ride with new machine… congrats


Mayank May 12, 2009 at 3:11 am

Go 4 Pulsar 200. R15 z too costly for just 150cc..dont go 4 pulsar 180 coz its very very common..


baradwaj May 13, 2009 at 1:58 pm

thank you very much mayank.
well for the past 2 days i have been going to all the showrooms. i loved the bajaj avenger and pulsar 200cc. i admired the enfield. yamaha’s gears are too hard and it was not impressive. but when i searched the net, i found that in there are a lot of complaints regarding the pulsar or rather the bajaj company in general stating that they have terrible after sales service. they dont solve problems and their main goal is to sell and not care afterwards.
(i also thought of an alternative option that is i can have a private service dealer but the moment the private dealer touches the vehicle then the warranty expires.)
karizma’s complaints are only a few and that also with regard to battery and not the engine. i find only 2 complaints regarding enfield and that is also regarding the battery only. (someone stole the battery of enfield)
i loved the avenger but am scared of after sales service difficulty. plus i want a vehicle for city use. i am not a highways person. i prefer going long distances by train or bus.


Mayank May 14, 2009 at 1:26 am

Even i was going for bajaj bike..may b pulsar 180 or 200..but sumbody told me dat bajaj z gud @ making fans only..funny but quite true…


rajesh.m January 18, 2011 at 3:50 pm

if bajaj is only capable of attracting people then why cant honda and yamaha do that??? this too is funny but true


Mohit May 24, 2009 at 11:37 pm

I LOVE this bike …….


bosad dk July 23, 2009 at 5:19 pm

it is really happy to see the indian bikes giving tough competiton to foriegn bikes….i prefer bajaj pulsar 180dtsi well suited for indian road condition rather than yamaha fz becoz pulsar has stunnig look and present pulsar improved in handling,mileage ,speed and new international features are incorporated in it……..where a as yamaha fz16 is good option but its highest speed is only 101 kmph,its mileage is only 42kmpl in city and 48kmpl in highway, it lacks behind pulsar 150 wher milage is 50kmpl in city 60 kmpl in highway and highest speed is 115 kmph due to hull specification yamaha fz style is amazing and its handling,braking, are superb….


Tariq July 31, 2009 at 1:21 am

The 2005 year model of Pulsar 150 and onwards, the exhaust pipes are not of good quality. Poor quality materials and shoddy workmanship, I have had to change the exhaust on my bike once in 2007 and again now in 2009, I think I will have to change it, if Bajaj picks up the tab, then good, else, Consumer Court, here I come….

Rohan Sudan October 24, 2009 at 4:15 pm


Greeting for the Day …………..
I am having a very simple question which is mentioned below :

I am bit confused between the latest models of Pulsar 150cc and Pulsar 180cc and as a youngster I want a power in my bike (in terms of good pickup) and reliability.
I had words with many of my friends, they suggested me to go for 150cc reason being it is having good mileage and Kick.
When I ride it, I found 150cc is as same as Passion in terms of its handling weight and even someone told me that in 180cc now kick is not coming so it might be possible that If its self start will get fail or gets disable then you must need a kick to make the bike start.
So I just want to know is there any chances of getting 180cc self start feature disable or failure if any …..


Amit Agrawal August 23, 2011 at 1:41 am

Hi rohan,
If u want to buy a new bike then i would prefer u bajaj pulsar 180cc. becoz it is according to your requirement(in terms of good pick up)
if u talk abt mileage then I can say that its totally depend on you how u handled your bike.As I have recently buy new pulser 180cc and belive me i got 60km/hr avg before its’ first free it’s totally depend on you how u handled it.
believe me if u buy this bike u it would never give u any change of complaint.
only one drawback of this bike that it has not kick.I don’t know why they remove this becoz sometimes it might be possible that the self may not work that how u will start your bike.except this i have no complaint from this bike.
if u have any other question regarding this then pls feel free to call me.
my no is -9582111169.

bine October 29, 2009 at 12:07 am

Hi Rohan,
I am using 150cc 2006 model, it give me 50+ milage. If you looking for reasonalbe milage always go for 150 or 180cc range. pulsar 150/180,cbz extreme are good. both have power and a resonable milage.

Coming to FZ16, Pulsar 200cc you have more power compared to 150/180cc class but low milage and requires more maintainence. And one thing I noticed is during the rainy seasons especially Pular 200/FZ16 which doesnt have a chain cover, when the dirt goes into the chain you get a very bad noise and it takes away the oil from the chain and even the smothness of the bike gets affected.

Coming to maintainence
Irrespective of any bike you choose my personal advice to you as this is ur first bike always go for service once you complete 1500 – 2000km. I do the same and I dont have any problem with my bike and is too good to ride.

Awaitn for u r reply


Diderick October 29, 2009 at 11:06 pm

I need to know, I have a 180cc Bajaj Pulsar but my top speed is between 80kmph to 90 kmph. Am I driving it wrong or should I take it for tuning or what should I do? I need to get at least 120km per hour out of it, it is no fun to overtake cars with great acceleration speed and when the cars reach 80 I need to pull into the yellow lane so they can pass me. Another thing seems like it cuts out running out of revs when I reach 80-90kmph.


abhi October 30, 2009 at 5:08 pm

i am going to buy apache 180 it is perfect or it has any drawbacks plzzzz say for me

Citra January 27, 2010 at 8:13 pm

@diderick, still having the problem? If the problem still occuring, have you check the oil level? It might drained.


Suresh Chandra January 29, 2010 at 3:06 pm

I bought a Pulsar 180 CC bike in Oct. 09. I did not check about the fuel efficiency for this. But this time when i checked, this bike take 20 litre fuel though Bajaj says the fuel tank capacity is 15 litre. I am surprised to see this but when i checked with Petrol pump man he said sir, being practical this bike takes 20 litre fuel as full tank.

this might be a mis guidance from petrol pump man but how it is possible a tank with 15 litre capacity (as per bajaj) takes 20 litre fuel (as i checked myself) on filling petrol.

please advise what to do.


Arun Nair December 2, 2010 at 12:45 am

Hey Suresh,

I too discovered this today only! I already had about 1.5 ltrs of petrol in it and when i went to fill full tank, it turned out to end at 18ltrs! And the filling station guy himself was amazed!


Sachin57 February 9, 2010 at 7:18 pm

Dude your tank is bigger i think hahaha..It must be 15.check it again..Or else the petrol pump people are cheating.

Plz kindly help me! Plz guys.

Kiran March 7, 2010 at 11:34 pm

Hello Arya,

If you are just looking for the mileage, then you can go for Hunk, that stands on top of the list of the Bikes you’ve mentioned.
If you are looking for looks and mileage, then choose Pulsar 150 or 180cc. But as far as your height is concerned, go for the Pulsar 180cc, although you can expect a mileage of 45 Kmpl on an avg in City from this Bike.
And yes it’s total value for your money….

But I would suggest you to take a test ride of all the bikes you have listed above, before you book or buy the Bike :)


Happy riding.


Sandeep March 9, 2010 at 9:21 am

I want to purchase a new bike. I have two bikes in my mind Bajaj Pulsar 180cc or Honda Unicorn. Plesae tell me which bike i should prefer. I want performance and looks.

Abhishek March 25, 2010 at 9:49 pm

pulsar180 dtsi is an amzing byke, i took 2 it to 154 km/hr and till that moment handling was superb..!!
its been 8 months n i usd to ruin the roads and still it gives mileage of 38 kmpl…
i hv defeated R15, Fazer , FZ16 n Karizma ZMR when v land up wid d race,,../
Bt i will advice u guyzz to go for 220cc coz its luks r dashing moreova its oil cooled engine and most IMPORTANT is
PULSAR180 and PULSAR220 gives same mileage/..
i cudnt go for some resn bt i love that,,
best regrds



Chandu April 2, 2010 at 1:24 pm

I purchased Pulsar 180 DTSI UG4 on 29-Mar-2010 in Bangalore.
The onroad price of it is 73,606 + 300 (smart card for RC)

*Its a bit heavy-sport bike and you have to bend a bit to ride.
*Its pickup is superb.
*Milage-I dont check/bother.

*It is not for a family bike, as the seats are split.
*It comes with sari gaurd WITHOUT footrest which creates problem for sitting for ladies wearing Sari(Bajaj has to design one) and you wont get it outside too.
*You cant fit the helmet lock properly(helmet is compulsory in Bangalore) as the crash gaurd is very small and the tail hand is split and is not useful to fit one.
*You cant ride with kid and your wife… not very comfortable. (Only two ppl can ride)
*Head light brightness is not up to mark.

If you are sporty natured.. riding with girl friend / young wife (without kids).. then go for it.
If you are looking for a family bike.. this will definately going to disappoint you.


chandra shekhar May 5, 2010 at 1:58 pm

I bought Pulsar 180 CC last weel ….All I wana say is I made the best selection …. Yes, what a byk .. what a style … what a performance n what a milage ( yes I am getting 45 in chennai city … didn’t had even first service) …. the comfort is so high and I am loving my BYK …. dont think if ur in delima if u wana buy 180cc byk ….. NO TVS APACHE .. No HUNK .. NO YAMAHA …. Jus go with PULSAR !!! enjoy riding !!


jith May 11, 2010 at 8:59 pm

am agree with u , sure bajaj 180 ug4 is far better than other bikes itz more comfotable 4 a long ride and give better look, itz give milage around 45,sure itz defiantly male i love this bike


Sridhu May 28, 2010 at 4:47 pm

Hi Frnds!
Got a new P180 last week.Believe me it’s one of my best decisions made ever.This bike is really amazing.Though u got much higher priced Indian bikes in market P180 is best suited to all in all means but if you r looking for real fun with power better go for P220.As it a new one never went beyond 60kmph as a result got 52km mileage per liter(Trust me 350Rs normal petrol in hyderabad returned 334km).Till you reach 1000km in the display please never make the bike go more than 65kmph.
1.The gears are bit tight but i am sure this will be solved in the first service as i know the bajaj products and services.
2.If your height is less than 5’8″ please choose another bike for your comfort and handling.
3.I’ve noticed the attention of boys n girls when u cross them on this bike.Forget about the karizma and Yamaha.

Finally though the bajaj pulsar is a common bike on the road you still will be a proud owner.
Drive safely!


uday June 2, 2010 at 10:01 am

thnx for ur knowledge being shared on bikes…i am going to buy bajaj 180 today.

Dont buy pulsar. The silencer is not good. After 2 years you will have to surely change it, which costs around Rs.4000.


Vinay July 30, 2010 at 3:53 pm

Renier August 3, 2010 at 4:31 pm

Hi All,

I purchased a Pulser 180cc about three years ago, had my fare share of miner accidents. My brother also came short after lifting an inexperianced pillion. Till this date the bike might not look like much but she still runs very well.

I have done more than 26000km on her and only did a servise three times. So for money saver and great reliance I would suggest the 180 to anyone.

I still get aproximatly 480km – 500km on R135 (16 or 17literes) of petrol. Never left me behind and never gave me any problems except for the electronic starter (Still damaged) works most of the time but then just not working.

Speed is maxed at 109km without ref light. max speed remembered is 126km.

So to me it stays a cool bike for its class.



Rahul November 8, 2010 at 9:35 am

Hello Everybody,
I want to purchase pulsar 180cc but i m confused as it is kick-less, thus thinking for 150cc. I hope without kick there would be starting problems in winter/rainy seasons. So can somebody suggest me about 180cc/150cc.


Aniruddha November 19, 2010 at 4:51 pm

Hi Guys..

I want to buy the all new Pulsar 180 DTSi.. but my freinds suggest me to get either unicorn or CBZ extreme..

Pulsar180CC will always keep you 2 step ahead from FZ as far as Mileage & pick up Concern.
You can Drag this Bike upto 100Km/H @ 3rd Gear. Least to Least Average of this Bike 35Km/L If u r overtaking in nature other wise at ideal speed u will get 45 to 50 Km/L.

I have bought Pulsar 180 just a year ago. Look wise i found it good also it have popularity. But its engine is too noisy .
I have raised complaints 3 times but no use. They toggle iddle speed setting & tell us that its rectified . I am very unhappy with its service and performance. More over the handle has become loose & engine got Locked. Pulsar Sucks. In winters it doesnt even starts at odd hours like midnight 2am to 4 am . Its better to ride cycle than Pulsar


Avijit September 22, 2011 at 11:09 am

Pulsar 180 dtsi is an awesome bike with fabulous looks and mileage is also manageable…it is very comfortable for long rides n also in the city…the on road price of pulsar 180 dtsi new model is 66,000 in pondicherry…so guys if u wanna buy pulsar 180 dtsi have it from pondicherry…


santosh September 24, 2011 at 11:53 am

hey all ,
i bought pulsar 180 around 1 month back…
look is awesome n it has more power…
just wanna share some of thoughts..
things to remember for pulsar 180…
use oil rather then grease for the chains (as its open)..
tier pressure should be 28 for front n 33 for back..
try to put grease to gear lever once in two weeks…
if u maintain it properly it will give u good mileage… i ride at a speed of 35-50 it gave me a mileage of around 55..
try to use the same petrol bunk to fill up…

Disadvantages as i have come through…
engine sound is more
gear lever is too tight
it heats up very soon…

hope it will help


gaurav September 25, 2011 at 4:25 pm
