First Impression Review
After the success of the Pulsar clans, Bajaj has launched a small version of the Pulsar with a relatively small and fuel efficient engine to attract the city dwellers as well as casual commuters. The Pulsar 135LS, which got launched back in India in 2009 came with a very light weight design and style, and showcased a stripped and the thin version in the entire Pulsar series.
The Pulsar 135 comes with a 4-stroke, DTS-i, air cooled, 4-valve single cylinder engine. The motorcycle produces max power of 13.5 Ps @ 9000 rpm and max torque of 11.4 Nm @ 7500 rpm. The engine is mated to a 5 speed gearbox. The engine comes with 4 -valves and uses Bajaj’s DTS-i technology. The 135cc engine is very fuel efficient and also gives enough power and torque to meet all the daily requirements.
The Pulsar 135 may have a relatively small engine, but it still retains the sportiness and responsiveness of the Pulsar series. The engine is clearly made to give out a smooth commuting experience yet it still have some fight inside to take a twist around the highways to make the Adrenalin pumping.
