New Bajaj Pulsar 180 - The Teen Matures
[Image: new-bajaj-pulsar-180.jpg]
How many of you have actually ripped the Bajaj Pulsar 180? The people who raised their hands probably know what that bike is made up of! Personally speaking, Pulsar 180 is the best bike from the Bajaj’s stable. The earlier variant was synonymous with raw power and this variant just takes the game ahead.

Contrary to what other manufacturers do, Bajaj believes in giving value to each and every penny spent on its bikes. On the same page, this bike is around two thousand rupees costlier to the earlier version. Here is the list of what you get after paying more money.

Big Pulsar 200 looks - The bike now looks almost same and as big as the existing p200 (though rumors are that p200 is also going to be upgraded)
Fatter Tyres - The bike now gets the 120 rear section tyres which were 100/80 17 in the earlier version
Split Seat - The new bike also gets the visually appealing split seats
Tank Scoops - It also gets the dummy tank scoops direct from the pulsar 200 and aids in the overall visual appeal of the bike
Clip-on Handlebars - It also borrows clip-on handlebars direct from the eldest brother pulsar 220.
Elliptical swingarm - Elliptical swingarm is one of the best fitments to this bike direct from the big brothers which aids to the better handling and cornering of this bike at high speeds and sharp speedy turns and for fun riding as well!
Increased wheelbase - The wheelbase is also increased by 25mm to 1345mm in comparison to the earlier version
37mm forks - A welcome change is the 37mm front forks which make the bike look awesome and meaty with the bottom pipes colored in black contrary to pulsar 220.
Rear Sprocket & O-ring Chain - This new bike shares the same rear sprocket and O-ring chain from the P220
Toe-only shifter - The bike does away with the traditional shifter to toe-only shifter to enhance the sporty feel of the bike.
This is not the end of the long list of goodies offered! Many would feel that the resistance would increase with fatter tyres. A Big No! Bajaj has reworked and tweaked the engine to a greater benchmark. The engine now produces 17.02 Ps from the same 179cc mill from the 16.5 Ps produced in the earlier version. Added to that, the valve timings along with the silencer have been retuned and the bike gets a new character.
