Production on the Bajaj Pulsar first began in 2001 and is still going strong. There are currently six different variations of the Pulsar available. There is a 135cc, 150cc, 160cc, 180cc, 200cc, and 220cc. Production has been booming since it began. In 2011 monthly sales were around 86,000. In 2020 there had already been more than five million Pulsar motorcycles sold. Prior to the introduction of the Pulsar, Bajaj had focused more on affordability and fuel economy with little focus on motorcycles with higher capacity.
The first generation of the Bajaj Pulsar was released in November of 2001. It had a four stroke, 150/180cc two valve engine with a single cylinder. It featured a maximum BPH of 12/15. Standard features included parking lights, disc brakes, and an aircraft designed fuel tank lid. The 2003 model featured new DTSi technology. This new technology increased the power and fuel economy of the Pulsar. In 2005 the Pulsar 150 was launched. It included standard 17 inch alloy wheels and a small fuel tank. The stance was slightly lowered which called for the smaller fuel tank in order to keep the motorcycle looking proportionate. The horsepower was also increased to 13.5 for the 150cc and 16.5 for the 180cc.
Those aren’t the only changes that have been made over the years now. In 2006 the Bajaj Pulsar introduced some more new features. These included changes in the pilot and headlamps, new turn signals, a new flush LCD screen and new digital key vehicle data, and several other cosmetic updates. In 2007 the Pulsar received updates to the engine such as an oil cooled engine and cosmetic updates such as a digital dash. 2008 brought with it a few more updates such as indicators for air filter, oil level, and battery status. Fast forward to the more current years and the Pulsar is still receiving updates. In 2017 the motorcycle received changes to color schemes, BS4 compliant coding for the engines, and new graphics.
