The bike uses the same 178.6cc 4 stroke air cooled single cylinder SOHC 2 Valve mill, which produces an enhanced output of 17.02 PS at 8500 rpm. Bore and stroke measure 63.5 mm and 56.4 mm respectively. Maximum torque is reduced by 1 Nm to 14.22 Nm from 15.2 Nm of the earlier version. The reduction is very much felt in this bike. The bike breathes through the UCD 29 carburetor.
Design And Comfort
The overall quality of the parts in this New Pulsar has been improved significantly. However, the finish on certain parts like indicator holders and the side panel locks could have been better. The first thing that strikes one is the addition of tank shrouds and the split seat that are borrowed from Pulsar 200 DTSi. The New Pulsar 180 gets changed in many ways. Now it gets the fleshy 37-mm fork assembly at the front. The contemporary all black theme is carried forward in the new version. From the forks to engine and rear suspension, everything gets matte black finish. There are larger forks at the front and box section swingarm at the rear. The DTS-i engine (no fuel injection) now generates slightly more power. The power output of new pulsar 180cc is 17.02PS at 8500rpm compared to the earlier 16.5bhp at 8000rpm. New pulsar 180cc has a wheelbase of 145 mm, 25 mm longer than the previous one. Kick lever has been scrapped and ignition is only through battery in the new pulsar 180cc. The bike also gets a new rear sprocket and the O-ring chain. There is a clip-on handlebar in the new bike
Ride And Handling
The wheelbase has been increased from 1320 mm to 1345 mm, which aids the straight line ability of this bike. The bike now comes loaded with an Oval section swing arm derived from the Pulsar 200/220 cc. With the inclusion of all these features the bike feels a bit stiff and less nimble when compared with the earlier version. The bike has a longer turning radius. Under extreme braking, Pulsar stands tall because of the quality of tyres. The New Pulsar will definitely hit the road with well acclaimed performance in the complete new look quite resembling 200cc.
