Bajaj Pulsar 150 is the oldest serving Pulsar in the range. From the first one in the early 2000s, not very much has changed. The new Pulsar still carries the same silhouette with a few modern touches and feature upgrades.
Now, Pulsar 150 receives another upgrade with few cosmetic tweaks. It comes in 3 variants – Classic, Standard and Twin Disc. Classic and Twin Disc have reportedly received the upgrades.
Twin Disc variant was launched a couple months back in India. Classic is the basic variant of Pulsar 150 and is also the cheapest Pulsar in the range.
Bajaj Pulsar 150 Twin Disc receives a new belly pan and 2 new colour option. The options include dual-tone black-and-red and black-and-blue colours. These are the only 2 upgrades on Twin Disc variant.
Pulsar 150 Classic receives 2 new colour options – Black With Red accents and Black with Silver Accents. The accents are seen on pillion grab rail, headlight cluster, on the badging and faux vents on the side.
