Bajaj Pulsar 150 2017 Review
Overview: The most dominated bike in Bangladesh in 150cc sport commuter segment is undoubtedly the Bajaj Pulsar 150 from Bajaj Auto. From 2001 this bike has been the glittering star in the 150cc segment throughout the Indian subcontinent. For most rider the name Pulsar is not just a name it’s an attitude.
The pulsar is being updated almost every year with cool new features ever since its first launch. In April 2017, Bajaj launched the Pulsar 150 2017 edition with BS4 compliance and all-time headlamp on (AHO). Despite of being developed for almost a decade Bajaj somehow finds something to change in every edition they launched.
In 2017 edition the Bajaj Auto added some new decals for giving it a new look and some tweak to the engine for making it Bharat Stage IV emission standard. Now this 2017 edition produces 13.8 BHP @8000 RPM and 13.4 NM of torque @6000 RPM which is 1 BHP down in power and 1 NM more torque than the older model.
Also some small changes that will be noticed one after another while spending some time with it. Such as, the gun metal engine color, the instrument cluster has new graphics, bigger muffler, the bottom part of the engine has changed, added decals in the rims. Some features that can be noticed while riding the bike for some time such as the headlight switch is gone, emits less pollution. Etc. More is described below.
Design: The 2017 edition has no change in chassis design or parts. Only changes that were made design wise are cosmetic enhancements. The new Pulsar 150 has new decal job which Bajaj calls laser edge graphics. The bike has got new decals on the bikini fairing, tank, tail, rims and on the side panels. The old digital-analogue instrument cluster gets new graphics along with blue backlit and there is carbon fiber like finish surrounding the cluster.
The handlebar and headlamp bezel got matte black finishing. The switch gears remain the same except for the AHO the headlight switch has gone. The bottom part of the engine has changed. The engine itself gets a gunmetal finish. A bigger muffler has added. All in all, the bike looks refined. It comes with three different color choices i.e. Nuclear Blue, Laser Black and Dyno Red.
Engine and performance: The biggest change that is made on the bike is in the engine. This engine is a refined and retuned version of the previous one which now meets the BS4 norm or Bharat Stage IV emission standard. Bajaj took the same 149.5cc single cylinder, air cooled, 4-stroke, DTS-i, BSIV Compliant, SOHC 2 valve unit. But reduced the bore by 2 mm and the stroke increased by 4 mm.
They borrowed the crankshaft bearings from larger displacing Pulsar. All these changes result in 13.8 BHP of peak power @8000RPM and 13.4 NM of peak torque @6000 RPM. So the top end power has dropped by 1 BHP but the peak torque gone up 1 NM and kicks in earlier in the rev range. All these are linked with old 5-speed gear box. What all these numbers will affect the performance!
The new Pulsar might feel slower in high speed but can pull more effortlessly in low speed. The throttle response should be crispier and instantaneous. All these are feed with the same large 15 litter Fuel Tank. The mileage claims by Bajaj also remain the same as 65KMPL on average.
Tires, Breaking, Comfort, Handling: The new Pulsar 150 has the same old telescopic front forks with anti-friction bush and 5-way adjustable Nitrox rear shock absorber. Tires are also the same 80/100-17” tubeless in the front and 100/90-17” tubeless at the rear, both are MRFs. The breaks are the same as well 240mm disk at the front and 130mm drum at the rear.
As there is no change in the chassis design, the upright riding posture remains the same. But a new textured and comfier seats has been added than the previous version. Which we believe will results in more comfortable ride. The wheelbase, ground clearance and seat heights remains the same as before.
Conclusion: The new Bajaj Pulsar 150 2017 edition can be called the refined version and will be the successor of the old and all-time favorite Pulsar 150. Considering this bike as daily driver is highly recommended.
