The 2015 Bajaj Pulsar 150 is almost production ready shedding all camouflage and could be launched over the next six months in the country.
Awaited patiently by Pulsar enthusiasts throughout the country, the 2015 Bajaj Pulsar 150 (or 160 NS) has mostly been in the news for camouflaged test mules of the production version. This time round though, the new Pulsar 150 made reappearance as a test mule, losing the camouflage and showing off its production ready body. The model however was not carrying any badges that could determine the engine capacity that would power the Pulsar. Nonetheless, we can say that the new Pulsar is indeed heading for a launch very soon.
Made to look like a baby 200 NS, the 2015 Bajaj Pulsar 150 uses the same design and graphics from the bigger street-fighter. The headlight, body panels, underbelly exhaust, split seats as well as the instrument cluster are pure replicas of the 200 NS, while the differentiating factor is the inclusion of kick starter, rear drum brake and skinny tyres on the 150. The smaller Pulsar also gets a monoshock set-up and new alloy wheels this time round.
Coming to the powertrain, the Bajaj Pulsar 150 was showcased sometime back this month overseas and was advertised to carry triple-spark technology and 4-valve as key additions that will help improve throttle response and fuel economy. The engine of the upcoming Pulsar will continue to be oil-cooled and will produce over the current 15.06 PS. Last week, Bajaj Auto spoke about launching 6 new models in the country over the next 6 months and looking at this production ready mule, the Pulsar 150 is very likely to be one of them.
