Bajaj will be betting big on the new Pulsar 150NS to revive its fortune in the 150cc segment which has been dominated by the Chakan based manufacturer. The Bajaj Pulsar 150NS will be powered by a 149.5cc, single-cylinder motor producing 17PS at 9,000rpm and peak torque of 13Nm at 7,500rpm. This means, the new Bajaj Pulsar 150NS generates 2PS and 0.5Nm of torque higher than its predecessor. The powerplant will be mated to a 5-speed gearbox and the engine will be equipped with 4-valves. The wheelbase of the Bajaj Pulsar 150NS has been hiked to 1,363mm and the bike tips the scale at 144kg which is identical to the bike it replaces.

Talking about styling, the new Bajaj Pulsar 150NS will carry forward the same design language as seen on the Pulsar 200NS. The brute streetbike styling should enable it to standout among its rivals and also appeal to the youngsters. Switch gear and the part-analogue-part-digital instrument console have been carried forward from its 200cc sibling. The Bajaj Pulsar 150NS employs telescopic forks at front and a monoshock setup at the back. This makes the new motorcycle the second Pulsar offering after the 200NS to adopt a monoshock suspension. Braking is done by a disc brake at front and drum brake at rear. We feel Bajaj could offer rear disc brakes as an optional extra like in the case of the Honda CB Trigger. Bajaj is renowned for their cut-throat pricing so we can expect the new Pulsar 150NS to carry a sticker price of around Rs 73,000.
