We help you to choose the perfect vehicle for you
Performance bikes have been redefined thanks to the presence of the Pulsar badge in the Indian market. The Pune-based automaker’s contribution to the developing motorcycle culture in India has been immense. Since the arrival of the Pulsar brand in the year 2003, the demand for performance bikes has risen considerably. Pulsar is to the two-wheeler market what Windows is to the world. Most of the time, we keep ranting about how the new updates are not of any good with better alternatives available. However, we still use Windows (or ride Pulsar) because it has become a part of us. Everything apart from that bike in the performance + commuter vehicle segment seems unviable.
Having seen the overview, let us move towards the comprehensive Bajaj Pulsar As review:
Furthermore, Bajaj takes steps to meet the need of the consumers. It forked out pretty well about the lack of demand for its sporting series and thus switched them to the commuter models. Since the transformation, these models have gone on to do pretty well in the Indian market. And to add to the latest model in the entry-level segment is the new Pulsar AS 150 which since its arrival has been a game changer thanks to its inspiration from 200cc-semi-faired two-wheelers.
Exterior: The Bajaj Pulsar AS 150 comes terrific on the outside. Much of that can be accredited to inspiration from NS with a half fairing. However, each part has been thought over carefully to create a two-wheeler with a versatile aesthetic appeal. The traditional adventure motorcycle design is at the helm of the AS 150 as it boasts of a faired headlamp with decently big visor. The V-shaped headlamp comprises of sculpted surrounds adding aggression to the face. The tank shrouds on either side of headlamps add to the bulky appeal from the front. The quality of products used in the Bajaj AS 150 is quite good. Footpegs, grab rails, paint fit and visor are all top quality. Other standard features include projector headlamp backlight, LED tail lamps and detailed instrument cluster.
Specifications: The Bajaj Pulsar AS 150 features a DTSi engine which developed 16.8bhp of power at 9,500 rpm and it generates a torque of 13Nm at 7,000 rpm. This makes Bajaj AS 150 the second most powerful 150cc motorcycle in India besides Honda CBR 150. One cannot ignore the fact that the AS 150 is lighter with the perimeter frame which adds to the performance.
Price: Bajaj Pulsar AS on road price is between INR 80,000 to INR 85,000 considering price after GST. The prices may vary based on the region.
Competitors: Bajaj Pulsar AS price and specifications put the model in direct competition with other bikes such as Honda Hornet 160, Yamaha Fazer V2.0 and Suzuki Gixxer.
