Dealears have confirmed that no new Pulsar 180 motorcycles are coming in from the factory, and that they will retail the 180 until stocks last. After that the only model available will be the Pulsar 180F ABS.
Thoughts About The Bajaj Pulsar 180F
We're kinda certain why Bajaj chose not to keep the Neon name for the Pulsar 180F. It is heavily styled after the Pulsar 220F and kinda looks like a scaled down model of the latter. Also, we don't know what the neon highlights are doing. It looks okay on the black motorcycle, but the silver? Well.
