Last year, Bajaj launched a new generation of Pulsars in the Indian market. It started with the N250 and F250. This year, the manufacturer introduced the N160 and their next motorcycle is the N150, which will be the entry-level motorcycle for the new generation of Pulsars. Here’s what you can expect from the upcoming Pulsar N150.
Bajaj Pulsar N150: Appearance
Judging from the spy photos, the Pulsar N150 looks a lot like the N160, and the N160 looks a lot like the N250. However, the Pulsar N150 will be more affordable than the other two models. As such, there will be some changes, such as the front LED headlights being replaced by halogen headlights, but the design is expected to remain the same. Also, the headlight covers look different than on the N160. It will get an underbelly exhaust like the N160, and the taillights will be an LED unit.
Bajaj Pulsar N150: Engine and Transmission
Bajaj will downsize the engine of the Pulsar N160. The current Pulsar 150 produces 14 Ps of maximum power and 13.2 Nm of peak torque. In comparison, the N160 produces 16 Ps of maximum power and 14.65 Nm of peak torque. The power output of the N150 is expected to be around the current Pulsar 150, but the level of refinement should be better and the engine should have torque.
Bajaj Pulsar N150: Features
Feature-wise, the new generation of Pulsars doesn’t offer much. The N150 is also expected to follow the same pattern. So expect a digital instrument cluster with a tachometer and a bezel-less design. Bajaj is also available with backlit switchgear and auto-canceling turn indicators. A USB port may also be available.
Bajaj Pulsar N150: Hardware
The N150 will use the same platform as the N160. Braking duties on high-end models will be handled by front and rear discs, while low-end models will have drum brakes on the rear wheels. Both variants will come standard with single-channel ABS. Suspension duties will be taken care of by telescopic forks at the front and a single shock at the rear. The tires on the N150 will also be thinner.
