Bajaj recently launched a new Pulsar 150 with disc brake at both ends. They are hoping a rear disc should add enough spice to keep this ageing model alive in the 150 cc segment. This variant will be made available in addition to the existing single disc variant. The bike is priced at Rs. 78,016/- (ex-showroom – Delhi) which should work out to about 90k on-road.
Apart from the new rear disc brake, the new Pulsar 150 will also possess new colour and design scheme, split seats and split grab rails, longer wheelbase and wider and bigger rear tyres. The new Pulsar 150 Twin disc will also equip significant improvements in noise, vibration, and harshness (NVH) and a best in class 230 mm rear disc brake. It will be made available in 3 colours – Black Blue, Black Red and Black chrome.
The new variant will continue to churn 14 Ps of power and 13.4 Nm of torque with the most robust 149.5 cc DTS-i engine. Apart from the previous colour options of Pulsar 150, customers can now choose from 3 new colour options exclusively available for the twin disc variant of the Pulsar 150.

While retaining the core, the new twin disc Pulsar 150 will offer contemporary option to motorcycle enthusiasts.
