Rajiv Bajaj spilled the beans in September when he announced the upcoming 2017 Pulsar range and little did we know that they have plans to continue with the smallest 135LS as well.
Yes, after the 2017 Pulsar 220, 180 and 150, we now have a video which reveals the new Pulsar LS135 and pictured on this page are screengrabs from the same video.
New 2017 Pulsar LS135 Changes
In terms of changes we can notice the following…
- New red decals on black colour (like the other 2017 Pulsar range)
- Split seats have been replaced by a single unibody seat. It also appears to be textured.
- Split grab-rails have been replaced by a single metal unit.
- The clip-on handlebar seems to have received black matte-finish. It was glossy black in the older version.
- Exhaust heat-shield is now blackened. It was chrome-coated on the older version.
What changes have been made to the engine are not known at this point but it may have become BS4-compliant to adhere to the upcoming BS4 emission norms which will come into effect from April 2017 after which old BS3 motorcycles will not be allowed to be sold in India.
