Spy shots of the new Bajaj Pulsar 150 ABS with a BS-6 engine have been leaked. Other than a revised engine, the bike will get some minor changes as well.
Pulsar is going to get yet another upgrade, but a slightly bigger one now. Powerdrift has leaked spy images of the new Bajaj Pulsar 150 ABS with a BS-6 engine onboard, testing near its plant in Pune.
Other than that, we can also spot some differences onboard. The test mule gets a revised set of graphics, a new colour option, new footpegs and blackened rims as a part of BS-6 upgrades.
Largely the new Bajaj Pulsar 150 ABS with the BS-6 engine looks the same. The main change will come with the revised engine, that will be more fuel efficient as well as better in performance.
The updated Pulsar will continue with the 149cc air-cooled DTS-i SOHC engine, that produces 14 BHP at 8000 RPM and 13.4 Nm of peak torque at 6000 RPM. The motor will remain mated to a 5-speed gearbox.
The power figures in the BS-6 version will remain the same. Currently, Bajaj claims that Pulsar offers a mileage of around 50 kmpl, which would increase by a small bit.
Another thing that caught our interest is the ABS ring on the rear tire. Actually, it is not the ABS ring, but the speed sensing ring for Rear Lift Off Protection (RLP). This is an alternative to ABS, which can be used on drum brakes too.
Features onboard will include a semi-digital instrument console, a single seat, single-piece grab rail for the pillion, high-raised clip-on handlebars and the same set of headlamps.
For suspension, it will continue with telescopic forks at the front and spring loaded hydraulic absorbers at the back. A front disc and a rear drum brake with ABS will come as standard, whereas the rear disc will be as an option.
We expect a slight increase in the prices of the new Bajaj Pulsar 150 ABS BS-6 version. Currently, it is priced starting from Rs 68,250 going up to Rs 88,339 (ex-showroom Delhi).
