Bajaj Pulsar 180F has now been spotted at dealerships in complete flesh. We believe that the new bike has been silently launched in India, while an official launch is just a few days away.

Bajaj Auto started updating its lineup with Pulsar 220F when its ABS variant was silently launched. Following which, Avenger 220 ABS variants were introduced. Rumours say that Pulsar 150 and 180 ABS are also out.

Bajaj Pulsar series has one of the best selling motorcycles of India in its lineup. However, Pulsar 180 was one of the lowest selling bikes. We expect the 180F to bolster the variant’s sales to a bit extent.

So, here are the five things that you should know about the 2019 Bajaj Pulsar 180F.
