The Bajaj Pulsar 180 is finally back! The Pulsar 180 was once a very popular naked streetfighter in the country. However, due to the tough competition, it was not selling in very good numbers and so the naked Pulsar 180 was discontinued in India in April 2019. It made way for the semi-faired Pulsar 180F. Now, after two years, the Pulsar 180 is finally back. The price of the new 2021 Bajaj Pulsar 180 BS6 starts at Rs. 1.08 lakhs, Ex-showroom Delhi.
Now, if we talk about the changes in the new 2021 Bajaj Pulsar 180, so in a nutshell, the answer is that it sports very minimal changes. The motorcycle continues to look the same as before, however, it does get new graphics on the body panels which makes it look identical to the Pulsar 150 Twin Disc. It is now available in a single dual-tone colour variant only, named Black Red. The new Pulsar 180 gets the same mechanicals as the Pulsar 180F, however, being a naked streetfighter, it weighs much lesser than the Pulsar 180F.
The new Pulsar 180 is powered by a BS6 compliant 178.6cc single-cylinder, air-cooled, fuel-injected DTS-i engine. This motor churns out 17.02 PS of max. power at 8500 RPM and 14.52 Nm of peak torque at 6500 RPM. The engine comes mated to a 5-speed manual gearbox. For suspension duties, the motorcycle gets telescopic forks at the front and a mono-shock absorber at the rear. The braking duties are performed by disc brakes at either end and it gets a single-channel ABS (anti-lock braking system) too.
Finally, talking about the price, so the price of the newly launched 2021 Bajaj Pulsar 180 BS6 starts at Rs. 1.08 lakhs, Ex-showroom Delhi. At this price point, it is around 6,600 rupees cheaper than the Pulsar 180F but, sadly Bajaj Auto has now discontinued the Pulsar 180F. So, what are your thoughts on the new Bajaj Pulsar 180?
