Bajaj Auto has introduced the stripped down version of its standard Pulsar 150, christened as the Pulsar 150 Classic. This new variant is priced at INR 67,437 (ex-showroom, India). In terms of pricing, the bike is around INR 10,811 cheaper than the standard model. To attain this price tag, the automaker eliminated the top specs components of the Pulsar 150 twin-disc including graphics work, rear disc brake, split-seat and tank extensions as well.
The automaker has announced the launch of Bajaj Pulsar Classic 150 though, the bike is not been updated yet on the official website. Whereas, at the dealerships, this new Pulsar will be available by the end of this week as suggested by the dealers.
Aesthetically, the Bajaj Pulsar 150 Classic is an all-black motorcycle with blacked out components. It shares styling from the Pulsar 150 UG III that was introduced in the Indian lineup in 2006.
Beneath the fuel tank, the similar 149cc, single-cylinder motor of the standard Pulsar 150 take cares of propelling duties. In conjunction with a five-speed gearbox, the motor is capable of churning out the peak power of 14hp at 8,000rpm along with 13.4Nm maximum torque at 6,000rpm. The underpinning such as chassis and suspension is also the shared units. Braking, on the other hand, is under the concern of 240mm front disc along with a 130mm drum brake. In terms of advance safety of ABS, the Classic 150 misses out as the brand’s aim to provide affordable Pulsar in 150cc displacement.
With this offering, the buyers from Tier-3 will also be able to opt Pulsar at an affordable pricing and create a new customer base for the brand. In the segment, the Classic 150 will see competition with the rivals such as the Honda Unicorn and the Hero Achiever 150.
