Which is the best Pulsar engine?

A 150cc engine is a sweet option for both performance and mileage and thus contributes to maximum sales. The 150cc engine in the Bajaj Pulsar produces a maximum power output of 14PS@8500rpm. It also produces a maximum torque output of 13.25Nm@6500rpm.
The 150cc engine is a 4-stroke, 2-Valve Twin spark BS6 compliant DTS-I FI engine with 149.5cc displacement. You get a 5-speed manual transmission with 15L of fuel capacity. The company acclaimed mileage is around 50+ but you can easily manage 35+ in real-world traffic.
The best thing about the Bajaj Pulsar 150 is that it is made for the everyday rider who needs a pinch of performance. The seats are like any other normal bikes with minimal height difference between the rider and pillion.
Upright seating position, smooth suspension, premium material seat and 43cm alloy wheels add to the looks of the bike. You get telescopic front forks and a 5-step adjustable Nitrox rear shock absorbers.
One of the most overlooked parameters in a vehicle is its safety. As people are slowly becoming aware of the importance of Safety, the Bajaj Pulsar 150cc comes with a 260mm ventilated front disc. You also get ABS for ultra-safe braking performance on any surface. There is an optional Dual Disc option too to purchase.
You also get a light-sensitive 12V full DC headlamp and a light-sensitive digital cockpit. The beefed-up frame with 1320mm wheelbase and tubeless tires further add to strength and stability.
Styling and Looks
The Bajaj Pulsar looks are iconic for a very long time. The new BS6 model comes with minor styling tweaks to add freshness to the car. You get laser-edged graphics with premium new paint options. The iconic aerodynamic fairing on the fuel tank can be seen here too.
You also get carbon fibre accents and instrument cluster graphics with the wide headlamp unit for impressive visibility during night. Bajaj dubs their headlamp design as the ‘Wolf-eyed look’.
The Bajaj Pulsar has been in the Indian market for a very long time. The name Pulsar itself has become sort of a brand name now. Variety of engine options cater to a large audience but the best Bajaj Pulsar engine is still the iconic 150cc unit.
