Bajaj Pulsar 150 is one of the best sellers in Bajaj’s stable. It still does not look much different from the first Pulsar 150, maintaining a similar silhouette and bodywork.
The current version now sports modern fits and finishes with the latest features. However, the next-gen Pulsar 150 is going to get even better with the addition of Anti-Braking System.
Its reliability and economical engine put it as a safe choice amongst buyers. Currently, it offers a rear disc brake as an option.

The price hike can be attributed to the added features and addition of a disc brake. The 2018 Bajaj Pulsar 150 is priced starting from Rs 74,125 to Rs 78,515 (ex-showroom, New Senegal). Bajaj is known to price its products attractively. The 2018 model Bajaj Pulsar 150 carries forward this trend.

|True Top Speed||120 KMPH|
The Bajaj Pulsar 150 has a true top speed of 120 KMPH. However, the speedo could show speeds in excess of 135 KMPH. But 120 KMPH is still a respectable top speed for a bike in this segment.

|Kerb Weight||144 KGs|
|Ground Clearance||165 mm|

In the front portion, it gets the famous domed cowl along with the AHO headlamps. Design highlights include the split seats, new decals, matt black inserts over the body and front and rear disc brakes. It may not be the most stylish looking in the 150-160cc segment but definitely looks sporty enough.
The Pulsar 150 comes in 2 variants, which are as follows:
The 2018 Bajaj Pulsar 150 comes in three sporty lasers edged color schemes-
The 150cc segment is quite a tough for the bikes. Every brand has its 1-2 bikes in this range and all are highly competing against each other on the basis of better features or mileage. 2018 Bajaj Pulsar 150 competes mainly with Suzuki Gixxer, TVS Apache RTR 160, Honda X-Blade and Yamaha SZ-S.
Gixxer recently got an ABS variant and it offers some more features like Fuel Injection and a Fully Digital speedometer. The Apache RTR 160 can easily be one of the best amongst the lot. It also gets ABS and Fuel Injection, but it offers better ride quality with a slipper clutch. Honda X-Blade and Yamaha SZ-S are not direct competitors, because they are priced lower than Pulsat 150, but offer the same features and similar type of styling. If you see, Pulsar 150 offers a very grunty yet frugal engine, which gives great mileage figures. However, if you are looking for a bike with more features, you might not choose this one.
