The new Pulsar's 150cc engine delivers a power output of 13.10bhp at 8000 rpm. It has a wonderful pickup clocking 0-60kmph in 5.66 seconds. It produces a maximum torque of 12.28 Nm @ 6500 rpm. The Pulsar engine remains relatively smooth but when pushed hard it does lose some of its smoothness. Also at low speed and at low momentum the Pulsar engine does feel a bit lumpy. Compared to the other 150-160 cc bikes, the Pulsar 150 DTSi can be described as the "Jack of all trades" that doesn't quite excel in any particular parameter but has a lot of decent features.
Design And Comfort
As part of its 2009 pulsar series, Bajaj has added few new features to its flagship product pulsar 150cc. The new pulsar 150cc gets tank scoops borrowed from the pulsar 200cc. The decals on the tank is large and stlyish. It also gets full black theme - from engine to alloy wheels to shock absorber. Pulsar 150cc also gets a powerful headlamp which now gets power directly from the battery. However the engine remains unchanged, the transmission is slick and precise. Heel and toe lever gives pulsar 150cc an attractive look. But the rattles and squeaks are still not sorted which will be quite evident in any test ride. The headlight comes with city lights or tell-tale lights which are a value addition to its looks. The tail part of the bike is nicely designed. The new razor sharp rear light definitely adds to the uniqueness of Bajaj Pulsar.
Ride And Handling
Riding position on the Pulsar 150 DTSi is much sportier as compared to other bikes. The quality of the ride is the best among the 150 cc bikes, thanks to its plush shock absorbers. Even the handling is not too bad on the 150 Pulsar DTSi, except that the shock absorbers are set to pamper your back rather than attacking the race tracks. The clutch works perfectly but the gearbox still needs a bit of improvement. It hits a top speed of 108kmph.
