Bajaj has given a slight makeover to the Pulsar 150 Neon, perhaps, to woo in more customers. So now the new Pulsar 150 Neon will come with a pair of tank extensions just like the Pulsar 150 Standard. While we do think that the tank extensions do enhance the bike’s looks, however, that isn’t just the reason why Bajaj took this step.
We think that the main reason Bajaj did this was to help differentiate the Pulsar 150 Neon with the Pulsar 125 Neon. Both these bikes look very similar to each other and it’s really difficult to point out which one’s which until a closer inspection is made.
With this slight tweak, Bajaj gave the people a very much visible element that differentiates the Pulsar 150 Neon from the Pulsar 125 Neon.
Apart from the new tank extensions, the rest of the bike remains untouched. It still has the same 150cc engine that produces 13.8 bhp and 13.4 Nm of torque and is mated to a 5-speed gearbox. The Pulsar 150 has been one of the best commuters India has ever received and with the kind of pace it is still selling, we think it isn’t going obsolete any time soon.
Bajaj isn’t charging anything extra for the new tank extensions. So the updated Pulsar 150 Neon continues to retail at Rs 75,200 (ex-showroom).
