It was drizzling… and I still remember the day when my Father rode his Bajaj KB 100 and came to pick me up from my school. It was our Christmas holiday and how excited I was to pack all my bags from my hostel to leave… My Father was very proud to own it since it had released with a style… The Kawasaki brand name attached to Bajaj gave hype for the rest to lay an eye on her… It’s time… For the brand Bajaj to reach on top, giving a tight competition to their competitors… But… we live in a country where Hero Honda rules… Honda is a huge brand… Now, it’s my time to have a discussion on Bajaj Pulsar 150 cc DTSi…


*- This review is dedicated to all the riders out here -



--Basic Information--


Bajaj Pulsar comes in four variants and they are 220cc, 200cc, 180cc and 150cc. If you ask me which the best in the lot is, then I may sit in a corner and think. I’m still thinking… But, I bet they all have their own class of customers.


-Why am I talking about 150cc?-*-


Well, I believe most of us live in a country where petrol is more precious than anything and it’s very important to think about mileage before owning any vehicle. As compared to the other variants, I personally believe(I’m sure even you will agree) 150cc gives more mileage.


-Why then Pulsar?-


My friend has got a Pulsar and he has spent all his money on its modification. It’s just that he is so attached to the bike that he just doesn’t care spending on it. I have advised him to sell it and go for a Karizma(I keep changing my bike). But the guy just doesn’t want to sell it and it still at its best. So the point is, unlike Hero Honda, its spare parts come in low cost.


-How much does it cost?-


It will cost you around 67000 to 70000 Rs on road.


-How long do I have to wait for it?-


Kindly approach a good showroom and you will get the vehicle on availability. My friend had to wait for about 15 days just because he ordered for ‘red’ color. Oh, it does matter.


-Why didn’t I go for Bajaj Pulsar?-


That’s a genuine question there. When my friend booked for Pulsar, I went ahead to take a bit risk. Well, the bike was just launched and I went ahead to buy Unicorn. But, it worked and it wasn’t a risk at all.


- Reasons for which I bought Unicorn over Pulsar:


1. Its indicators keep breaking.


2. Its break shoes need to get fixed or changed quite often(6-9 months).


3. They don’t have a helmet lock.(I’m not too sure if they solved this issue)


4. For long rides, Pulsar is not too comfortable and I had a backache once.


5. Disk break is not that great compared to Unicorn.


-Why am I writing this review now?-


Well, the above problems haven’t stopped anyone buying this brand. And I’ll go for one due to the following factors.


1. Styling


2. Its renowned Digital Twin Spark Ignition Engine.


3. Engine oil cooler to control the temperature.


4. Digital speedometer.


5. Wide tyre which gives more grip on the road.


6. Availability and price of spare parts compared to the other bikes.


-Why should you go for Pulsar?-



Perhaps, pulsar is the first bike in India gave a tight competition to CBZ. Many of us would agree that Pulsar rocked big time and left Hero Honda in gag. Later Unicorn came in the picture and still the competition between the brands is on fire. But we never know who rules over the market. But they have an urge in ruling the market as we know about the launch of 200cc and 220cc to compete with Karizma. It’s working… Pulsar’s throttle response is much better than the rest. All you got to do is to twist the throttle and this beast will pull you along with him @ 8500 RPM. Its 17’nch alloy wheels do provide a good grip on the road and of course who doesn’t want to compromise over its trendy looks and fuel efficiency(Mileage expected 50-55).


-Now what are its cons?-


Well, it’s not advisable for people who are tall(6ft) since its riding posture is not apt for them. Like I have mentioned earlier, its disk break is not that good compared to Unicorn since they are very sensitive and you got to be very careful applying them at a speed over 70 kmp.


-Then, why should we go for it?-


Who doesn’t like to rip on it? Just twist the throttle and it will take you at a speed of 60 in seconds. All you have to do is, ride safely. And all you have is a beast who could touch 100 kmp, overtaking its competitors due to its pick up.


-A note for the riders:-


Kindly maintain the bike in good shape and maintain a speed of 45 kmp prior to its first service.


-As when I conclude:-


It was drizzling… and I still remember the day when my Father rode his Bajaj KB 100 and came to pick me up from my school. It was our Christmas holiday… I was young to ride on it… But now, it’s time… Time to leave home and rip on to those slippery fields…
