Bajaj Autos had been planning for a fresh looking street fighter in the 150cc category. Named as the Pulsar NS150, the new motorcycle comes up with the attitude of the naked series. Bajaj has made it in such a way that it looks more like a lean NS200 than having its own identity. With the Pulsar DNA in its roots, the aggression of the bike blows away everything which comes in the way. It is expected to be launched in India by May-June 2016.
Pulsar 150NS is said to be with the same console being used in the NS200. The semi digital console is one of the best in the motorbike industry with an analogue tachometer in the center and a digital speedometer at the right. Left houses all the indication lights and the speedometer is also said to be digital.
Engine and Performance
The 149.5 cc engine of Pulsar NS150 produces 16.8 BHP @ 9000 rpm with 13 NM of torque @ 7500 rpm. Performance of the Pulsar family is what they have been known for and the 150 segment balances the mileage issues also. The new 150 NS would be a very nice sprinter. It is mated to a 5 speed manual gearbox. Bajaj has opened new doors for the ones who were always scared by the fuel economy of the NS200 and died inside every day for its killing style appeal.
Brakes and Suspension
The front end of Pulsar NS150 gets a disc brake, which might be a larger one as on its predecessor, due to some higher horsepower. Rear would be managed by a drum braking system. Front suspensions are the telescopic type with amonoshock absorber at the rear. For the front, 80/100-R17 would be used whereas the rear gets a 100/90-R17 size. The width has been kept standard in order to reduce the engine effort against friction and this keeps a good balance between performance and safety.
Dimensions and Weight
The overall length of Pulsar 150NS is kept at 2105 mm with a width of 800 mm. The overall height is 1220 mm, making it a bit higher than the standard 150 cc offering. With a fuel tank capacity of 12 litres, the total wet weight counts at 144 kg.
No statement on the mileage of Pulsar 150 NS has been provided by Bajaj autos, but we expect it to be a lower figure to that of current 150 due to the increase in power. An expectation of 40-42 kmpl would be a genuine estimate till the official release date.
A combination of Black & White and Black & Red has been seen so far. Pulsar 150NS may inherit the 200 NS color schemes which are Cocktail Wine Red, Ebony Black,Sapphire Blue and Pearl Metallic White.
Variants and Expected Price
Pulsar NS150 is expected to be available in a single variant with a price tag of INR 75,000 (approx., may vary).
If effectively priced, the new Pulsar 150NS can be the game changer for Bajaj Autos. The sales have still being recorded with a downfall as the majority sections of the buyers are not the ones who cross a 1 lakh mark. The lovable 150 cc section provides ease to thousands of pockets and the bet on this one will surely make everyone smile.
