Bajaj Auto has added a new variant to its Pulsar lineup, called the Pulsar 150 Classic. Interestingly, the first generation Pulsar sans the fairing and DTS-i tech is also referred as the Classic among the enthusiasts. The 2018 Bajaj Pulsar 150 Classic has been positioned below the twin-disc Pulsar 150 that was launched in April this year. The Bajaj Pulsar 150 Classic has been priced at Rs 67,437, ex-showroom Mumbai making it Rs 10,118 lesser than the twin-disc version.
The 2018 Bajaj Pulsar 150 Classic does not come with vinyls and tank extensions that are offered as standard on the Pulsar range. Additionally, the Pulsar Classic comes with single seat instead of the split layout, rear disc brake, all-black components and will be only available only in a single shade, black. The frame and the powertrain of the Pulsar 150 Classic are unchanged. The 149.5 cc DTS-i engine produces 14 PS of power and 13.4 Nm of torque, mated to a 5-speed gearbox.
The Bajaj Pulsar 150 Classic will compete with the likes of the Hero Glamour FI (Rs 66,400), Hero Achiever 150 (Rs 66,100) and also the Pulsar 135 (Rs 64,489). While the Pulsar 150 Classic rides on the popular brand image of the Pulsar brand, the offerings by Hero are known for their reliability and efficiency. Between the two, which one would you choose?
