Bajaj Pulsar 150 Discontinued – Pulsar P150 Takes New Role

Bajaj Auto has decided to discontinue the ageing Pulsar 150 motorcycle in India as part of the company's plans to revamp the Pulsar range of motorcycles.

Taking place of the Bajaj Pulsar 150 motorcycle is the newly launched Pulsar P150 motorcycle. However, this is not a surprise considering that Bajaj recently discontinued the Pulsar 180 motorcycle back in August 2021.

That being said, the Bajaj Pulsar still continues to be one of the best-selling motorcycles in Bajaj's product portfolio, and the model comes in three variants - Pulsar 150 Neon, Pulsar 150 SD (Single Disc), and Bajaj Pulsar 150 TD (Twin Disc). Out of these three variants of the Bajaj Pulsar 150 range, the Neon variant is the most affordable.

Diving into details, the Bajaj Pulsar 150 Neon variant is priced at 1.04 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi), whereas the Bajaj Pulsar 150 SD is priced at Rs 1.11 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). On the other hand, the top-spec Bajaj Pulsar 150 TD variant is priced at Rs 1.14 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). Moreover, this variant of the Pulsar comes with a slightly sportier riding position, split seats, beefier swingarm and telescopic suspension and different mudguards as well.

In comparison, the Bajaj Pulsar P150 motorcycle is available in two variants. The base variant comes with just a single disc brake and the variant is priced at Rs 1.17 lakh (ex-showroom, India). On the other hand, at Rs 1.20 lakh (ex-showroom, India), the top-pec variant of the Pulsar P150 motorcycle comes with both front and rear disc brakes for better stopping power and it is also equipped with a more stylish-looking split seat setup.

Coming to the specifications, the Bajaj Pulsar 150 is powered by a 149.5cc, single-cylinder engine with 13.8bhp of peak power at 8,500rpm and 13.25Nm of peak torque at 6,500rpm. Furthermore, this engine comes mated to a 5-speed gearbox. In comparison, the newly launched Bajaj Pulsar P150 motorcycle uses an all-new 149.68cc, single-cylinder engine with 14.5bhp of peak power at 8,500rpm and 13.5Nm of peak torque at 6,000rpm. Moreover, this engine also comes with a 5-speed gearbox.

It is also worth mentioning that the newly launched Bajaj Pulsar 150 motorcycle is suspended on a pair of 31mm telescopic suspension at the front and a mono-shock at the rear. Furthermore, the Bajaj Pulsar P150 motorcycle comes better equipped with features such as bi-functional LED projector headlamps, LED pilot lamp, LED taillights, clip-on handlebars (split seat variant), USB charger, digital-analogue instrument cluster, DTE read-out, gear shift indicator, single-channel ABS and much more.


Thoughts About Bajaj Pulsar P150 Replacing Pulsar 150

Despite being a significantly outdated motorcycle, the Pulsar 150 continued to be a dominant player in the 150cc motorcycle segment with consistent MoM and YoY sales figures. So, replacing a proven sales winner with a new motorcycle is indeed a bold move from Bajaj. That being said, we expect Pulsar P150 to gain traction within a few more months.
