Priced at Rs 67,437, Bajaj Auto has launched a new variant of the Bajaj Pulsar 150. This variant has been named as Pulsar 150 Classic and it is based on its predecessor Bajaj Pulsar 150. This new Pulsar 150 Classic is Rs 10,118 cheaper than the Pulsar 150 twin-disc as the features like graphics, a rear disc brake, a split-seat and tank extensions are missing in the bike.
According to Autocar India, the Bajaj Pulsar 150 Classic is only available in black, with blacked-out components and styling reminiscent of the Pulsar 150 UG III (launched in 2006). The new bike is not yet updated in the official website. The Pulsar 150 Classic is the second-most affordable motorcycle in the Pulsar range after the Pulsar 135 LS, the report said.
The Pulsar 150 Classic remains identical to its previous one. It is powered by a 149cc, single-cylinder motor developing 14hp at 8,000rpm and 13.4Nm of torque at 6,000rpm. The five-speed gearbox handles the transmission duties.

The frame and suspension also remained unchanged. Braking hardware consists of a 240mm disc brake at front. A 130mm drum unit at the rear is also present. Since Pulsar 150 Classic is not a new product but just a variant, Bajaj isn't compelled to equip the motorcycle with ABS.
Bajaj made the Pulsar 150 more accessible to buyers, especially in Tier-3 cities, where the Pulsar 150 still remains an aspirational motorcycle. The new Pulsar 150 classic competes against the Honda Unicorn and the Hero Achiever 150.
