Here’s a quick drag race between the Bajaj Pulsar 150 and Royal Enfield Bullet 350. Check out the video to see the shocking results!
Royal Enfield bikes do have high capacity engines but their power figures are comparatively lower. That’s because their weight is higher and their engines are towards the torquier side. Here’s a drag race of the Bullet 350 against the Bajaj Pulsar 150. There might be a lot of difference between their power figures but the latter is nearly half the weight.
As you can see, the Pulsar 150 is a bit old and not in good running capacity. The Bullet 350 is running on alloy wheels which might also affect the speed. In the first attempt, you can see the Bullet 350 taking an initial lead. Despite hard attempt, Pulsar 150 cannot manage to even reach near to the Bullet.
In just a couple of seconds, the Royal Enfield Bullet 350 races off far ahead. You can see the top speed of both the bikes. The Bajaj Pulsar 150 can reach a top speed of 116 km/hr. On the other hand, Bullet can max go up to 126 km/hr. As per claimed by the manufacturer, both are just a bit over their claimed top speed.
In the second attempt, the riders have exchanged their bikes. Here you can see that both the bikes start at the same time and for some distance, are moving alongside. Towards the end, you can see the Bullet 350 pulling up on the basis of its top speed. Probably, if the Pulsar NS160 would have been used, Bullet would have a tougher competition.
Bullet now uses a refreshed BS6 compliant 350cc engine with fuel injection as standard. The single-cylinder engine now produces 20 PS and 28 Nm of peak torque, while mated to a 5-speed gearbox. Pulsar, on the other hand, goes with a humble 150cc FI engine that is good for 14 PS and comes with a 5-speed manual gearbox.
