The 2022 Bajaj Pulsar 150 is expected to hit the market in the coming months, and it borrows heavily from the 250 Twins in terms of design.
Bajaj Auto was spotted testing the near-production next generation Pulsar 160, which could be dubbed the N160, a few weeks ago, and it’s expected to be released in the second half of this month, according to reports. However, it is not the only motorcycle currently undergoing trials, as a photograph of what appears to be an all-new Pulsar 150 based on the 250 twins has been captured.
The test mule for the next generation Pulsar 125 was spotted at the beginning of last month, raising questions about whether it would be a 125 or 150 cc motorcycle. It appears that a new Pulsar 150 is in the works, with styling inspired by the F250/N250 and some styling elements from the regular Pulsar, as well as a new powertrain.
The new projector headlamp and LED Wolf Eyed Daytime Running Lights are the most noticeable differences in these spy photos, while the LED tail lamp is borrowed from the 250 twins. The alloy wheels are also new, and they may be lighter, resulting in increased stability. The split seats are inspired by the 250 Twins, and the split pillion grab rail is stylish.
It’s possible that the semi-digital instrument console will be similar to the F250 and N250. The new tubular frame used in the 250 Twins would be extended to other Pulsars in the lineup across various segments, with the architecture most likely being incorporated in the 2022 Pulsar 150. The front disc brake is similar to that found on the Twins, but it may be smaller.
In terms of performance, a new 150cc single-cylinder air-cooled engine could be used, which would be a smaller, more refined version of the quarter-litre mill found in the 250 Twins. As with the existing engine, the performance numbers could be around 14 PS and 13.25 Nm, and the prototype also has a kick start.
A short flyscreen, sharp-looking mirrors, telescopic front forks, short front and rear fenders, an upright handlebar, and prominent fuel tank extensions are among the other highlights. Given that the test mule is nearing the end of its testing, we can anticipate a market launch in India in the coming months.
