If you are a motorcycle geek or just planning to buy a new Bajaj Pulsar motorcycle, then the differences between these two models can be very useful for you. 

If you are wondering about the term DTS-i associated with these pulsar models, then here is the answer to your question. It stands for Digital Twin Spark Ignition. Bajaj holds the Indian patent for this technology. The company boasts that through the implementation of this technology, the motorcycles are able to provide a fast rate of combustion and then a faster rise in pressure. The models with this technology are known for better fuel efficiency and for lower emissions.

In 2003, Bajaj developed the DTS-i technology and incorporated this technology in its earlier 150 and 180 cc Pulsar models of motorcycles. Since then, they have gone through a series of upgradation phrases. Currently, both are equipped with 4-stroke, DTS-i, air cooled, single cylinder type of engine. They both are available in three colors- midnight black, plasma blue and cocktail wine red.

for city riding 150 is better

Hmmmm Chalo Guyzz.. Go with 150CC coz I have purchased it ;)

i m modied my pulsar 150 to 180 .i make some changes in my bike like i change the rear carrier of pulsar 180 nd i change my bike seat into 2 part its make my bike almost like 180...

Guys go for 180, in case of kickers, after a year or so change amaron battery, no other issues. 180 is far more comfortable than 150, riding position, ride control road grip and etc.,

I wanted to know the difference in handle bar between 150cc P and 180cc P. Please let me know if anyone knows?

I'm a bike lover....I've driven almost all best&selling bikes....when it comes for a bk lvr like me,180 is a best chosen 1.no bike company launches the bike without kicker with problems. if there is no kicker in,it means its a secured power start.so kicker doesn't matter.u r paying 3000 x-tra for x-tra 30 cc,a bit more speed,split seat,larger tyre,bit low height handle bar than 150,torque and power.but a disadvantage is for all these we r getting reduced by marginal 10 km mileage. it is better to buy a pulsar 180.....as we giving bit mileage and getting more gain in specs....

i like the comments..thanks guys...


Guys please Suggest me -- for pulsar 150 or 180 Be cozy p180 have no kick so its matter for me but 180 look are cool so please guys suggest me witch one batter....
