Bajaj Auto has launched the new Pulsar 180 in India. The motorcycle comes with cosmetic tweaks including new decals & twin pilot lamps with Auto Headlamp On (AHO). The new design, Bajaj claims, is a stylish nod to the design that started the bike revolution in the 150 cc+ segments in the country. The new avatar gets sporty split seats, black alloy wheels and an ‘infinity’ LED tail lamp. The motorcycle is equipped with a 4 - stroke SOHC 2-Valve Air Cooled BSVI Compliant DTS-i Fi engine. It delivers peak torque of 14.52 Nm (at 6500 rpm) and 12.52 kW power at 8500 rpm. It also features a 5-speed transmission gear box with telescopic anti friction bush in the front suspension and a 5-way Adjustable Nitrox Shock Absorber in the rear suspension.
In the domestic market, the Bajaj Pulsar will go up against the likes of the TVS Apache RTR 180 and the Honda Hornet 2.0. However, for the same price, you can also get the TVS Apache RTR 160 4V, Pulsar NS160, Yamaha FZS FI-V3, and the Hero Xtreme 160R.
