Bajaj Pulsar 180 DTSi relaunched, Apache Pulsar rivalry to continue

2021 Bajaj Pulsar 180 DTSi

Bajaj Auto has launched the BSVI avatar of Pulsar 180 DTSi in India. It was replaced with 180F during the BS4 transition but now it's back. The famous rivalry of TVS Apache RTR180 and Pulsar 180 was kept on hold as 180 grew and got a semi fairing. Now both the motorcycles are naked motorcycles and gets styling as before. So let's see what Pulsar 180 has got in 2021.

Powering the Pulsar is a 178.6cc 2-valve, air-cooled engine. It produces 17.02Ps at 8500 rpm and 14 Nm at 6500 rpm. This is of course a BS6 compliant powerplant. This is mated to a 5-speed gearbox. The engine has been carried over from 180F and it is still the same engine in UG4 pulsars which is now cleaner, greener and efficient than previous.

Styling is exactly as we used to get in UG4 or we can say as in the Pulsar 150 DTSi BS6. The design really needs an upgrade, it going to be decade since they have updated it apart from sticker all the Pulsar DTSi line up looks similar. We have iconic pulsar dome mask with single halogen headlamp and twin pilot lamps. Then we have a semi digital instrument cluster and illuminated switch gears. The muscular fuel tank has also been carrier over with tank shrouds. The seats are two piece split seats with same split grab rails. The only visual change is that now it gets a engine cowl and a new set of stickering.

Equipment wise it gets the same telescopic forks on front a 5-step adjustable dual rear nitox shock absorbers. The brakes have been updated though. Now it gets 280mm single disc on front and a 230 mm rear disc with single channel ABS but gets speed sensors on both the wheels.
Pulsar 180 only gets a single Black and Red colour option and it is priced at Rs. 1,07,904 ex-showroom New Delhi. It rivals TVS Apache RTR 180 and Honda Hornet 2.0
