Bajaj Auto is all set to launch its flagship motorcycle- Pulsar 200SS in India by the end of March 2015. Now, there are some reports suggesting that another Pulsar about to come on Indian streets. Yes, Bajaj might launch the Pulsar 150NS after the 200SS. The company has already unveiled the motorcycle in Turkey and it shares almost every aesthetic element with its elder sibling Pulsar 200NS.
Based on the Pulsar 200NS' platform, the upcoming 150NS will be propelled by an all new 150cc, 4-stroke, single-cylinder, air-cooled engine. The new mill will be blessed with the advanced 4-Valve and Triple-Spark technologies for improved performance and better fuel economy. Looking at the power figures of the current Pulsar 150 DTS-i, the 150NS seems to make around 15.5bhp of maximum power. We are not sure about the transmission of the bike, however, we believe that it will retain the 5-speed constant mesh gearbox, which comes with the existing 150cc bike.
Like the 200NS, the upcoming Bajaj Pulsar 150NS has an aggressive appearance with sporty style. It shares the design of headlight, masculine fuel tank cover, sleek rear panels, split seat, tail lamp, rear grab rails, 10-spoke alloys, console, clip-ons, rear-view mirrors, under-belly exhaust and many more elements with the 200NS. The 150NS also gets a similar type of suspension set-up with telescopic front forks and rear Nitrox mono-shock suspension. However, the front petal disc brake of the bike has smaller diameter and the rear gets a drum type braking unit.
As the upcoming Bajaj Pulsar 150NS will be positioned against the machines like Yamaha FZ series and Suzuki Gixxer, it is expected to be priced in a bracket of Rs. 72,000 to 75,000.
