Bajaj Pulsar 135 discontinued in India, removed from the company’s official website.
Bajaj has pulled the plug on the Pulsar 135 for the Indian market. The commuter has been delisted from the official website and will now be made only for the export markets. Dealerships also confirm the same. The last update the Pulsar 135 got was in March 2017, to comply with the BS-4 emission norms. As part of the update, the commuter bike got a single piece seat with a single piece grab rail, new toe-heel shift gear lever and a matte black heat shield. In short, it traded in its sporty appearance for practicality.
Over the years, Bajaj has made extensive changes to the Pulsar line-up in the country and next-gen UG6 Pulsars are already under development. The company will make way for the new range of BS-6 compliant motorcycles by filtering the current line-up to continue only the most relevant products. This discontinuation move comes across as a step in the same direction. With the introduction of 2018 Pulsar 150 (which comes with a lot more equipment), the Pulsar 135 was going to lose its relevance further.
The Pulsar 135 was the entry point into the Pulsar family of motorcycles. It came powered by a 134.66cc single-cylinder, DTS-i air-cooled motor with 13.56 PS of power and 11.4 Nm of torque. The motorcycle used telescopic forks up front and twin shock absorbers at the rear while braking duties were handled by a disc up front and a drum unit at the rear. The Pulsar 135 rivaled the Hero Glamour and the Honda CB Shine SP.
