BAJAJ Pulsar 150 Double Disk overview:
Introduction: Pulsar 150 has been upgraded again to the UG5 variant! If you are a Bangladeshi biker, or else, a biker from the subcontinent, you must know the meaning very well. It is an offering from the Indian automobile giant BAJAJ. BAJAJ has recently updated their 150cc Pulsar with new body parts. The 150cc Pulsar has its league. So to say, it has contributed to a significant stake to BAJAJ’s claim of this Pulsar series as “India’s No.1 Sports Bike.” See pictures of pulsar 150 twin disc here.
History: BAJAJ Pulsar launched back in 2001 to meet the demands of the new age “millennial” bikers. Since its inception, it has been a range that gives the riders a complete package of performance and reliability (Source). Different upgrades, either mechanical and cosmetic, have been made to this lineup of BAJAJ bikes to stay up to the ever-expanding demands of the market. Bajaj launched the 2017 edition Pulsar in Bangladesh back in the first quarter of 2017. It has seen some engine upgrades and some cosmetic ones to differentiate it from the other models that are thriving in the streets to date. Here comes the UG5 variant following the path with more upgrades! You will easily distinguish it as a Pulsar and still know it is the new one from its styling bits.
Features: The key feature of BAJAJ Pulsar 150 Twin Disc in its name! This new version now comes with a disc brake at the rear wheel and a bigger one in the front. Other features are described in a nutshell below.
It has AHO (Automatic Headlight On) system, new graphics including stripes in the iconic alloy wheels, a new color for the backlit switchgear to help you at night. It also has a new instrument cluster backlight color. The color is blue now with a unique design. It also has been added with a split seat like the one in the 180cc bike. It features a DTS-i twin spark ignition system and a new, more comprehensive, and throaty exhaust muffler. The design is very similar to the existing models. Hence it can be polarizing to some potential buyers. BAJAJ has gone the “why to try to fix something if it is not broke?” route while upgrading this version
The color options of this bike are all beautiful. The two colors of this bike in Bangladesh are:
- Black Blue
- Black Red
The gunmetal color of the BSIV engine is a beautiful upgrade. The bike has a muscular stance aided by aggressive vinyl decals and a new, more comprehensive exhaust with a more throaty and muscular sound, all of which increases the presence of the bike. The distinct slashed taillight is also a charm to look at and helps instantly recognize a Pulsar even in the night from a distance.
Body Dimensions: The all-new BAJAJ Pulsar 150 Twin Disc is a perfect performing motorcycle. The wheelbase is 1345mm on which the 144kg bike stands. The bike is balanced very well. The bike has a 15-liter fuel tank that feeds the engine.
The dimensions have changed by a small margin here and there. The overall length of BAJAJ Pulsar 150 Twin Disc is 2035mm, while the width and height are 765mm and 1115mm. The ground clearance remains at 165mm.
Engine & Transmission: BAJAJ Pulsar 150 Twin Disc possesses a 149.5cc, 4-Stroke, single-cylinder, 2-valve, Twin spark DTS-i engine that complies with BSIV emission norms. This engine’s Power & Torque figures are as follows: 14 PS @8000 RPM & 13.4Nm @ 6000 RPM.
This machine is paired with a 5-speed Transmission. The 5-speed transmission is good enough for long rides where you can put the bike in 5th gear and cruise comfortably. The approximate top speed of the bike is about 120kmph.
Suspension, Brakes, Wheels: The suspension system of this bike has a dual telescopic system upfront with an anti-friction bush and a set of 5-way adjustable Nitrox shock absorbers at the rear. The overall suspensions of Bajaj Pulsars have always been the best in class, which is also expected from this bike.
The front brake is a 260 mm Disc paired to the 6-spoke alloy wheel with a 90/90-17 tire. The rear brake is a 230mm Drum attached to the 6-spoke alloy wheel wrapped in 120/80-17 tire. Both the wheels have a tubeless tire for better performance and to avoid sudden deflation. The overall braking of the bike is a lot better than quite a few bikes of this range, as they come with a single disc, while this one comes with a double-disc setup. However, a CBS would have done wonders for the braking system, and not including it wasn’t a great job by Bajaj.
Best For: The BAJAJ Pulsar 150 Twin Disc is targeted at the country’s youth, yet it is very much usable by the older generation too. City riding is very much doable on this motorcycle. College and university students and young job holders are the main customers of this motorcycle. Many middle-aged users also use this bike daily for their need of commuting and inter-city riding.
The motorcycle is also very good at highway speeds. It easily lets the user do inter-city commutes thanks to its comfortable seating arrangement for both the rider and the pillion. So, you can do long rides with friends and family with the added confidence the new brakes provide now.
