2018 Pulsar 150 ‘Twin Disc’ Launched at Rs 78,000; Costs Rs 4400 More

2018 Pulsar 150 Twin Disc price puts it bang in the middle of the regular Pulsar 150 and the bigger Pulsar 180…

To adhere to BS4 emission norms, Bajaj went ahead and upgraded their older 150 cc DTSi engine last year which allowed them to sell their largest selling Pulsar – the Pulsar 150. Apart from significant mechanical changes, it also went through minor cosmetic enhancements (which you can read here).

Fast forward one year, in a latest update, Bajaj has introduced the 2018 Pulsar 150 Twin Disc which gets Pulsar 180-like features.

Here is a list of changes the motorcycle now comes with…

2018 Pulsar 150 Changes

  • Split seats with split grab rail
  • Fatter 37mm front forks
  • ‘Twin Discs’ – Quite a misleading term on the front mudguard but it means a disc at the front and it now also comes with a 230 mm rear disc brake. The front is a bigger 260 mm disc (up from 240 mm of the regular version).
  • New footpeg and pedal assembly.
  • New exhaust heat shield
  • Black alloy wheels in place of silver colour of the current version.
  • Longer wheelbase
  • No kick starter

Apart from this, that rear tyre is the broader 120 mm rubber – an upgrade from the current 100 mm. Bajaj also informs that there are significant improvements in Noise, Vibration and Harshness (NVH). The 149.5 cc DTSi engine continues to produce the same outputs of 14 PS and 13.4 Nm.

Pulsar 150 Twin Disc Rs 78,016
Pulsar 180 Rs 82,650

For the features and changes mentioned above, Bajaj is charging about Rs 4400 over the price of the regular Pulsar 150, which also continues to be on sale. So, Bajaj has probably targeted the new Honda XBlade which is also priced at around the same ballpark. However, now, with the P150 adorning similar bodywork and features of the 180, this new Twin Disc version may also eat into some 180’s numbers.

The Pulsar 150 Twin Disc will be available in three exclusive colours..

  • Black Red
  • Black Chrome

So, do you think this refreshed Pulsar will be able to fight out the new competition in the form of X-Blade and 2018 Apache 160? By the way, apart from this stop-gap model, Bajaj is preparing New-gen Pulsars which could include a Pulsar 250!
