2009 Bajaj Pulsar 150 and 180 Upgrade Pictures


2009_bajaj_pulsar_150_upgrade

Well it seems that Bajaj has been displaying the upgraded Pulsar 150 and upgraded Pulsar 180 at a few dealerships in Pune. The upgraded Pulsar 200 and 2009 Pulsar 220 will be launched later. We found few pics of the 2009 Edition Pulsars on a popular social networking site and xbhp. Bajaj seems to have mixed and matched alot of stuff among the Pulsars siblings.

    Mascherano, the prices of the upgraded bikes remain the same me thinks. There is no official word yet, but I don’t think Bajaj will hike the prices for such minor updates.

    Reply
  • mascherano May 12, 2009, 7:52 pm

    fas,they have infact!!!!!!!!
    and quite surprisingly, minor updates n major price hikes,
    p150 has a 10% increase(i.e 66k on road in delhi) and p 180 around 71k(i.e 6-7k more than old version), and i really dnt think the upgrade is worth the hike.

    poor show from bajaj, really disappointing…

  • Patkel (bike guide) May 15, 2009, 2:59 pm

    i think this time pulsar150 is going to be a disaster.Its the same dull,bowring model.The same headlamp ,same tail lamp and the main thing is that, there is really no change in engine .Only the engine colour has been changed (black) and 3D steel plated pulsar finish on the tank as Hunk . Overall the pulsar150 has been upgraded to pulsa180 & pulsa180 to p200 and is just cosmetic change and nothing . But some fools just go on fresh looks in market and hope pulsar would have some count of money . To me I would just go for HH HUNK,APACHE RTR,FZ but not pulsar

The bike should give fuel efficiency of 50+ -,good handling, reliable powerful engine(which would go comfortably for about 5yrs),good servicing ,and a good resale value , overall a value for money.So which bike should I buy? Here are sone bikes which I have selected ,HUNK ,PULSAR ,APACHE RTR ,FZ.

    We all have been watching new commercial of the launch of the Pulsar (Edition 2009). Yesterday, I was at the Bajaj Service Station and the new lot of Pulsar was there being unloaded from the Truck. I was desperate to see the new things they had introduced. And guess what, I was so upset to see the changes they had done to the Pulsars that I spelled many bad words to Bajaj. Who the hell is that person who brought this ridiculous idea to the Bajajs.

    Here is waht I noticed:

    1. Now 150 will be having same Fibre Fairing that the 200 has.
    2. Cheap kind of Logo Stickers looks like they have been purchased from a roadside vendor.
    3. The 180 will look the same as 200. You can’t make a difference between both of them.
    4. And the 200 will look same to 220. (WTF).

    Its really annoying for all those Pulsar 200/220 riders who feel like God while throttling their beast machines. Its an injustice to all of us.

    I strongly condemned these changes. And I think it won’t last long.

    Burnt Soul, I totally agree with you. Bajaj has really messed up the Pulsar lineup and they will surely feel the heat, once TVS gets the Apache 180 and Yamaha get the Fazer.

    yesterday only i visited the Khwiraj showroom in indiranagar 100Ft road of course in bangalore
    i saw pulsar 150 DTSi 2009 version
    when i was talking to the sales man i came to knoe that
    pulsar 150 DTSi 2009 quite similar to the old pulsar rather aesthetic appeal
    engine is same
    all black is new (inclulding all black engine,alloy wheels,crash guard)
    one more great thing is that the tank extension as of pulsar 200
    and old sharp rear frame is changed to smooth one
    graphics changed
    with its modifications it stood first in the same series vehicles beating FZ16 n apache
    pulsar sales will again boost up because of this
    so pulsar mania is bak
    it is costing 68,892/- on road
    pulsar 180 DTSi is not there for display and it may costs around 71,000/- on road

    Bajaj has started messing up its pulsar product range. The heat of competition growing day-by-day into Bajaj’s share has caused Bajaj to worry & TAKE SOME WRONG STEPS. If say, any competitors’ bike starts selling well Bajaj would not be in a position to retain its market share. They’ve got nothing new to cheer their bike from now. Mixed feelings have started to come up about Pulsar UG4. It does not suit everyone’s taste. If a 180 UG4 owner finds a 150 UG4 as being same as his bike,the looks will be stale soon, which is definetly about to happen. Competitors (For eg : Apache RTR 180 Menace) are coming up with new explosive engines which are far ahead of what Bajaj is offering. Encashing on DTSI technology wont last long. I believe Bajaj will have to come up with new engines & a different looks to keep its Pulsar Mania dream going on……

    Reply
  • fas May 31, 2009, 10:59 pm

    Yuvraj, Pulsar 150 is not the best choice in the 150cc segment. Checkout Hunk and GS150R, both are very good bikes. Unicorn is a very good bike but design is a little outdated.

    Price of the P150 is 65k and P180 is 69k.

    Guys, the prices I posted earlier seemed to have changed. Bajajs website is now showing a hike of around 6k of the before mentioned prices. So all the prices quoted before see a hike of 6k. That makes the Bajaj Pulsar not so value for money as before.

    Sharath, 2009 P200 will cost around 77k. P220 will be released this month. Your requirements of mileage and power suggest that you should get the Yamaha R15 or the Pulsar 220. The R15 will be in control thanks to its sticky tires. Karizma is quite outdated but still a good bike.

    Yuvraj, both bikes are pretty good but the FZ16 is a much better bike than the Pulsar 150 anyday. It performs better and looks stunning too. Torque of the FZ16 makes it very good to ride in the city. Pulsars lack stability at high speeds. Get the FZ16.

    Shoib, the RTR 180 is a little bit better than the Pulsar 180. The RTR is fun for the rider and handles very well. The Pulsar looks better and has more features but the RTR has better handling and brakes. The Pulsar 180 will give you a mileage of 45kmpl, whereas the RTR will give you a mileage of around 40kmpl.

    Pankaj, yes you have choosen a good bike. The Pulsar 180 is a very good bike and looks very much like the most popular Pulsar ever, the Pulsar 200 (minus the exhaust).

    You can see the picture of the Misty grey colour here http://www.motorbeam.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/07/Misty_Grey_Silver_Pulsar.jpg

    You can opt for red or blue as they look amazing on the Pulsar. I would choose blue anyday.

    Nishit, for 70kms per day you should get the Unicorn. Test drive the Unicorn and see how comfortable it is. Pulsar gearshift is a bit clunky. Honda is honda and the Unicorn will serve you well. The Apache wont be that comfortable to ride for 70kms a day.

    Maddy, the Pulsar 220 comes in grey colour. There is no problem in 220 DTSi engine and the Karizma FI is coming in September.

    Highflyer, you can change the colour of the speedometer light. It will cost you hardly 10 bucks but alot of effort. You will have to get a LED cap from outside which costs around Rs. 10/- Open the speedometer console completely and change the cap of the bulb inside to the colour you want. There you go, you got what you want :)

      Ajay, for 50kms a day the Apache wont be uncomfortable. Negatives of the Apache is, its not suited for tall riders. CBZ Extreme is a good bike but its old. I would never buy the Unicorn and its not my favourite either, only thing being the Unicorn is reliable and does the job very well for a 150cc bike. I would personally prefer the Fazer or the GS150R.

    fas, u have mentioned about adding a footrest at the rear for P180. Would it be done by the dealer on our request or should we be doing it ourselves. And also, interms of day to day usage (comfort, milege etc) and convenience, which bike is best buy – P180 or Yamaha Fazer ?
    Is there any drawback for the new version of P180 from previous one?
    Thanks in advance for your help in this matter.

    • fas October 5, 2009, 7:13 pm

      Vish, you can ask the dealer, some dealers might do it for you. Otherwise you will have to do it yourself. Yamaha Fazer seems a better buy as it comes with Yamaha quality, fantastic resale and amazing looks. There are no drawbacks on the new P180, Bajaj seems to have rectified most of the issues.

    Hi Fas,
    I am zeroing on RTR 180. Does the new rear Disk have any problem. And the dealer said 180 mileage is same as that of 160(just marketing talk?). Hope RTR 180 is better than pulsar 180 or atleast comparable. Or shall i go for pulsar 150(is mileage differance around 10kms) I am confused????
    Thanks,
    Ajay

      Ajay, there is no problem in the rear disc. The RTR 180 will give less mileage than the RTR 160. Yes the RTR 180 is better than the Pulsar 180 if you like riding. Forget the Pulsar 150, get the RTR. If mileage is a concern get the Unicorn.

  • Ajay October 6, 2009, 12:51 pm

    Thanks Fas. Honda is the best if we require Mileage, good engine and good power. But in few reviews i have seen that CBZ and Unicorn are offering/Added only stickers where as pulsar/apache have improved.(Who cares if the bike is Perfect viz a yamaha RX100)
    But their booking period sucks. I am Ok with RTR 180 if it can give me 45-50kmpl.

    Reply
    • fas October 7, 2009, 1:21 am

      Ajay, the RTR 180 will give you 40kmpl at best. CBZ and Unicorn were already having proper mechanicals and thus their manufacturers really didn’t need to upgrade them mechanically. With the Pulsar, you know it keeps getting better every time because its far from perfect.

    hi fas, yesterday the speedometer of my 15 day old rtr 180 stopped working all of a sudden. i immediately took the bike to tvs service center and got it checked. they took a test ride of the vehicle and said that the speedo sensor is gone and they would replace it free of cost to a new 1 after a week as they r out of stock. but when i took the bike out of service station, the speedo started functioning normally and it is normal even now. what must i do? should i take my bike to get the speedo replaced or should i continue with this? is the speedo sensor covered under the warranty? what may be the reason 4 this malfunctionality? i am totally worried as this is happening to such a new bike. please help…

    • fas October 15, 2009, 2:14 pm

      Prashant, its perfectly normal for the speedometer to stop working if the speedo sensor is gone. Get it replaced by the TVS Service Center. Yes it will be under warranty and you don’t have to pay even a cent. Sometimes due to defective parts by the supplier, there can be issues with some parts but the company will replace it for you. I faced the same issue in a car and got it replaced.

    Hi Fas, I booked a Unicorn.Its 1 week and now they say it will take min 60 days..phew.. After your opinion on Unicorn and GS150. I did a test drive of GS and liked it. But do you thing Rusting of GS bikes is an issue or you would neglect it.

    Also knocking and not able to go smooth pickup 3rd gear < 15kmph.

    • fas October 17, 2009, 12:54 am

      Ajay, 60 days is ridiculous. The dealer is playing games, don’t fall for it. I suggest you get the GS150R. The rusting issue was with a particular batch which Suzuki has resolved now. The GS has been geared in such a way that it does knock when you put in high gear at low speeds. Actually any bike would.

    Yes i enquired at Malakpet and Somajiguda And 60days was minimum(:) even the somajiguda Marketing person said..it because they have a strong Production plan). Anyway… Coming to GS150, i can go and buy it today itself. but sorry to ask for confirmation regarding the Rust issue as it has been in above mentioned blog and other sites for few months and even till last month.

    Hi Folks nice to meet you here; I bought a New Pulsar 150 Cc recently;
    Its true, this bike is really playing wid me;

    Its mileage became unpredictable, I donno what happened to the bike all of a sudden;

    During the time of purchase it was good and gave a good mileage
    but at that time i was a bit worried about the pickup and the engine beat;

    When i went for a first service; I asked them to increase my bike pick up; There the things went wrong; I don’t know what the stupid showroom guys did to my Bike; It suddenly got changd like some 5 yrs old bike. Even the pick up is also not good;

    What should i do to my bike now; Could some please suggest me some way out

    I would like to know your suggestion, if its a good move or should i wait for any other upcoming model or should i try any other Brands (Apache 180, GS150R, FAZER, FZ16 Sport)?

    Reply
    • fas December 18, 2009, 9:07 pm

      Kiran, how was your experience with the Pulsar 150? If you want reliability and quality get the FZ16. There is nothing exceptional offered by the Pulsar 180 per se. Apache 180 is also a mean machine, worth a try for sure.

      Nilesh dude, chill. Bajaj is yet to make a error free bike. Yes they are far better than what they were but still there is room for improvement. I am not a Bajaj hater but facts are facts. The Pulsar 220 UG4 faces overheating problems at times as well as starting issues. Now have you heard similar issues with Yamaha, TVS, Hero Honda, etc? I am not supporting any bike manufacturer but when you buy a bike peace of mind is foremost important and I am sure you will agree with that.

      Guruji, starting issues are not necessary because of lack of kick. The Pulsar is not the most reliable bike around and still faces some issues. The RTR is a better bet as its something different and not just every second bike on the road. Get the RTR with your eyes closed.
