The updated Pulsar will most probably borrow styling elements from its bigger sibling – the Pulsar 180. These could include using the 180’s fatter, 37mm front fork and a split seat along with a split grab rail. The revised exhaust also looks similar to the 180’s, and it will also wear a satin-finish heat shield.
The current bike is powered by a 149cc, single-cylinder, 2-valve, twin-spark motor which produces 14hp and 13.4Nm, so you might see a slight bump in its output figures and performance. The engine will also feel a whole lot more refined.
The existing Pulsar 150 is priced at Rs 73,626 (ex-showroom, Delhi), so you can expect an increase of Rs 2,000-3,000 for the new bike. The new Pulsar 150 will be showcased sometime next week, before the April 30 deadline, post which ABS is compulsory on bikes. This version of the bike may not get ABS but the next-gen model definitely will.
