Design & Style
The new Pulsar AS150 is the most affordable touring motorcycle in India. Sharing the same design of AS200, the smaller Pulsar seems to be lean. The same front wind shield, the semi-faired body design and the same long rear mudguard, all shows how closely both the Pulsars are related.
Dimensions & Weight
The length of Pulsar AS150 is 2070mm, height stands at 1205mm and width is 804mm. The company has not released the seat height value but is expected to be somewhere around 805mm. The wheelbase and fuel tank capacity of the motorcycle is 1363mm and 12 litres respectively. The kerb/wet weight of the bike is 143kg, which is 10kg less in comparison to the AS200.
Engine & Gearbox
The engine of Pulsar 150 AS is a tuned version of the current 150 cc, this one will also feature on the Pulsar 150NS. It produces 16.8 BHP & 13 NM of torque. The AS150 has a 5-speed manual gearbox.
Brakes & Suspension
Major difference seen is the smaller tires and non-availability of rear disc brake. Braking is restricted to a single disc brake for the front with a drum braking system at the rear. Front is using telescopic forks and the rear has a mono shock absorber.
Smaller tires measuring 80/100-R17 and 100/90-R17 are used for the front and rear.
The new Pulsar AS150 comes in Red, Black and Blue shade (without body graphics).
The pricing has been kept very reasonable at INR 79,000 (ex-showroom Delhi) .
