Bajaj Pulsar 180 ABS has been launched in India for INR 92,563 (ex-showroom). It was earlier spotted testing with complete camouflage on its body. The motorcycle is carrying single-channel ABS as standard while price gap between the non-ABS and ABS variant is just INR 7,000.
They have even introduced a non-ABS faired version of the Pulsar with the name 180F. The ABS ring will be seen on all Pulsar models as the deadline for updating bikes with a 125cc+ engine is nearing fast. The blue back-lit console and the side panels under the seat remain the same as present-gen models. The belly pan is also seen on the Bajaj Pulsar 180 ABS model.
Bajaj has already updated the Pulsar 150 with wide tires, rear disc brake and single-channel ABS under the twin-disc moniker. It is expected that after introducing ABS to the lineup, they will discontinue all other 150cc variants and keep Neon as well as twin disc (both ABS equipped) for the buyers. When it comes to Pulsar 180, the model is a decent seller and got itself an upgrade in the form of faired Pulsar 180F.
Bajaj is expected to use single-channel ABS on all their bikes, leaving just the Dominar and upcoming high displacement products with dual channel ABS as standard. The Pulsar range currently starts from INR 64,998 (ex-showroom). The only model left without ABS introduction in the Bajaj Pulsar lineup is NS160. It is expected to get 1-channel ABS in coming days.
