Bajaj Auto states that the single-disc variant allows a more upright stance, while the twin-disc variant has a sportier stance with a split seat. The seat height is a very accessible 790 mm. The suspension setup includes a new mono-shock at the rear and it gets an underbelly exhaust.
Along with these significant upgrades, there is a 10-kg reduction in weight (for the twin-disc variant), which means an 11% increase in the power-to-weight ratio.
The Pulsar P150 is powered by a new 149.68cc engine, which delivers 14.5 PS at 8,500 rpm and a maximum torque of 13.5 Nm at 6,000 rpm. The engine, says Bajaj, has been tweaked for making 90% of the torque available across the usable RPM range.

“Two decades ago, Pulsar 150 created the genre of sports sporty street motorcycling. With the launch of the all-new Pulsar P150, we have again raised the performance bar! The P150s are a great addition to the new Pulsar platform, which has already seen the launch of the 250s and the dual-channel-ABS-fitted N160,” Rakesh Sharma, Executive Director – Bajaj Auto Ltd, said.
