The Pulsar 180 is the upgraded version of the 180cc Pulsar with round headlight and is also a follow up of the popular 150cc Pulsar that got Bajaj a huge break in sales in the motorcycle business when it got first launched in India. The Pulsar 180 is a commuter as well as good city bike one can have in India. It comes with a wolf eyed headlamp with twin pilot lamps. The bike looks like a naked street fighter. The gunmetal engine colour, colour-coded alloy wheel decals, carbon fibre accents and aerodynamic fairing give it a super cool look.
Moreover, features like a clip-on handlebar, pass switch, electric start and engine kill switch gives this bike a complete panel of electric switch control for the rider right in the handlebar itself. The Pulsar 180 is a good upgrade over the last editions in looks and features.
A 178.6 cc 4-stroke, DTS-i, air cooled, single cylinder engine is tuned to provide 17.02 bhp of maximum power @ 8500 and a 14.22 Nm torque @ 6500 rpm. The engine is mated to a 5-speed gearbox. Bajaj has given an 18 litres fuel tank to this bike which is a very good advantage as it will reduce the regular visits to the petrol station for refuels.
The engine gives good amout of power and torque to give the Pulsar 180 an over its competitor in the same class. Bajaj has tweaked the engine to give good mileage without compromising on the power of this bike.
