Bajaj Pulsar 150 ABS variant's spy pics have been leaked online. As expected, the ABS version will be based on the current Bajaj Pulsar dual-disc variant, which costs around Rs 78,000 ex-showroom (Delhi). We expect the new Pulsar 150 ABS variant (single-channel unit) to be launched in the country in the first quarter of 2019.
The Indian motorcycle market is going through an interesting phase with the launch of many new exciting motorcycles. To name a few, Royal Enfield has launched their much-awaited 650cc twins: the Interceptor 650 and Continental GT 650. Both parallel-twin-engined motorcycles have received an overwhelming response in the market and the brand is expecting high sales figures for the same.
Meanwhile. Jawa Motorcycles have marked their return with the three new models: 42, 'Jawa' and Perak; among which the classy-looking 'Jawa' costs Rs 1.64 lakh ex-showroom (Delhi) — read the first look review of the 'Jawa' here!
Comingback to the topic,the new ABS variant of the Pulsar 150 will be priced almost Rs 7000 more than the dual-disc variant. This makes the expected price of the Bajaj Pulsar 150 ABS, roughly Rs 85,000; which is quite a reasonable amount.
ABS has been made a mandatory fitment for all ‘new' 125cc-and-above motorcycles, in effect from April 2018. From April 2019, all such existing motorcycles should also come with ABS. In fact, the number of ABS bikes in India are on the rise — check out the full list of motorcycles with ABS sold in India.
Powering the Bajaj Pulsar 150 ABS is the same BS-VI-compliant 149cc air-cooled single-cylinder engine which makes 13.8bhp and 13.4Nm of torque. This is mated to a five-speed gearbox.
Other features include a dual-tone paint scheme, clip-on handlebars, LED tail lamps, tubeless tyres and a semi-digital instrument console. The Bajaj Pulsar has been one of the most popular Indian motorcycle series, ever since the early-2000s.
Once launched, the new Bajaj Pulsar 150 ABS will rival the Honda CB Hornet ABS, Suzuki Gixxer 160 ABS and can even affect the sales of the lower variants of the Pulsar. The updates rules would also require Bajaj Auto to upgrade the Discover, V and Avenger range of motorcycles with ABS.
Thoughts On The Bajaj Pulsar 150 ABS Variant
The Pulsar 150 ABS variant is a much-awaited addition to the existing line-up of the entry-level sports motorcycle. The demand for ABS motorcycles is at an all-time high, even at the base segment. For the same reason, the new Bajaj Pulsar 150 ABS is expected to be a big seller.
