The Pulsar 135 LS was positioned as a sporty commuter to attract entry-level 150cc bike buyers.

Bajaj Auto has repositioned the Pulsar 135 from being a sporty commuter which takes on entry-level motorcycles to a mass market commuter, aimed at those looking to buy a premium 125cc bike. The automaker has updated the Pulsar 135 LS to meet BS-IV emission norms and along with that, has given it a slew of changes.

The Pulsar 135 LS gets new colour schemes which Bajaj Auto likes to call as ‘Laser Edged’, it also gets rim stripes or alloy wheel decals in company speak. The split grab rail has been replaced by a single unit while the split seat has been replaced by a single-piece seat, in keeping with the new positioning of the bike.

Other changes include a gun metal engine colour and a taller windscreen visor for a bigger front-end look (no it won’t curb windblasts as the Pulsar 135 doesn’t do more than a ton anyways). The motorcycle now gets a new heel-toe gear shifter for added comfort for commuting in the city.

The Pulsar 135 LS is the only Pulsar to not get AHO which will be added next month to the bike (probably because Bajaj is still clearing stock of the existing bike). Powered by a 134.6cc single-cylinder engine, the Pulsar 135 LS is the cheapest bike in India to use a 4-valve motor. It is priced at Rs. 60,178/- (ex-showroom, Delhi) and competes with the Hero Glamour.
