Bajaj Pulsar 180 UG4 Review by

2010 Bajaj Pulsar UG IV Click above for high picture gallery

Hi. My name is I am a graduate student in Ludhiana and a bike enthusiast like of you guys. I bought my Bajaj UG 4 in January 2010 and I want to an ownership review for this I have even dedicated a to my Pulsar which can be seen

Although I have never anything like that but, since I was impressed by bike a lot and I had always wanted to buy it, I gladly like to give people some preview this bike if they are to buy one.

Model Details

I this bike in January in Metal Grey. It is the fourth by Bajaj. I previously had my loveable Pulsar 180 UG3 in Black that I in December to buy the new model.

So, I think I am in a to make out the difference between the two I chose grey as it is still color in Pulsar models than black that has too common. Moreover, the scratches on the will not be too much visible far and it looks awesome in this

The time I went to buy this only two bikes in this were standing there. The guys told me very few in this colour were to them, So, I felt a bit lucky to get it in colour. I had done 23000 Kms on UG3 and have logged 4300 Kms on the UG4 till today.

I will be for its third service soon.

The comes loaded with and has a lot to offer in terms of value for I was happy to see it now comes with SEAT, CLIP ONS HANDLE BLACK FRONT FORKS, REAR TYRE (120/80 x 17 – MRF ZAPPER), BIGGER DISK (260 mm), SPLIT RAILS, NO-KICK LEVER – START ONLY, Toe shift with 1 down and 4 up Gear HIGHER REAR END, CHAIN (as P200 and P220), and FAIRING FLAPS as standard.

are not the cosmetic changes like other manufacturer’s therapy to the stickers and little stuff and the new model, But, these in refinement and safety level of the These were not present in UG3 model and believe me these the bike completely look than previous models and it a bulkier look as well in to the improvement in stability.

DTS-i – Twin Spark Ignition

twin Spark Ignition is a in the modern motorcycling era in the country and we are the first to offer it to Consumers. technology offers phenomenal augmentation and was introduced for the first on the highly successful Pulsar It is also being patented by Auto Ltd.

For faster and better combustion. one spark plug at one end of the combustion is the conventional practice. The flame created by the spark takes time to reach the farthest of the combustion chamber. This to slower burning of the air-fuel and creates limitations in optimizing the chamber characteristics.

Two spark at either ends of the combustion help in faster and better This combustion process of Spark Plugs is being by Bajaj Auto Ltd. Twin Spark Ignition).

with a Digital C.D.I.

A C.D.I. with an 8 bit microprocessor handles the spark delivery. The chip’s memory contains an ignition timing for any given rpm, thereby Obtaining the performance characteristics from the chamber. Working together the Trics III system, it delivers ignition timing for varying conditions.

Throttle Response Control System III Generation. It is a of controlling the ignition by operating the Depending on the needs of the rider it be cruising, acceleration or max speed, the requirements constantly change.

on a particular amount of throttle the magnetic field generated by the opens or closes the reed The reed switch is connected to the C.D.I. which signals the to change / switch, the desired advance timing maps. helps in achieving a good between drive ability and ignition spark advance, in an almost perfect ignition advance for every throttle and engine rpm.

Constant (CV) Carburetor The CV carburetor to provide high level of

ExhausTEC (Patent Number is a device incorporated in exhaust of ‘Pulsar DTS-i’ engine. stands for ‘Torque Expansion This world-first technology by Bajaj Auto improves the process. The exhaust system has revolutionary feature Incorporated, drastically improves engine at low revs without compromising at mid or high engine revs.

It has extensively optimized to get the Maximum performance out of the engine. The silencer has a characteristic tonal quality to it. It out a pleasant sounding low frequency sound.

While meeting the current noise norms, it the bike an identity, which is from any other bike, so as to it very unique.

The style in New Bajaj Pulsar 180 comes its bigger siblings Pulsar 200 and It completely have borrowed its from the Pulsar 200 which now has stopped production. If you have hands on the new Pulsar 180, you feel the need for Pulsar 200 as it has the Pulsar 200 had and more.

The plus point is that it has On Handle Bars from 220 which the Pulsar 200 did not possess. power is close to Pulsar200 comes around 17.02 PS. thing missing is the new Silver looking Silencer, although I do not it too much as it still looks with the Black one. The rear tyre and open chain on this bike really good. And if you want people should give you a look, this will to you when you go out on this bike.

The of this bike looks than the UG3 model as well. It has a end with its tail high up and broad tyre gives a look. I wished it came a rear disk brake but you get everything in that price bajaj is offering for this

Now, I will talk the feel you get when you sit on it. The time you sit on the first thing that your attention is the speedometer of The digital meter with dial looks awesome analog RPM that is faster UG3 model.

The speedometer can log Speed, Kms travelled, Analog RPM (12000 RPM max and RPM redline), A to B point reading in Kms save two readings at a same Low battery indicator, Side Indicator, High Beam Indicators (Self Cancelling turn) and Neutral indicator.

Red indicating many things it turns on when you are left low fuel in the bike). The plastic on the bar including switches is of good and moreover are BACKLIT. At night the speedo console looks with bright orange light and backlit switches attention of the passer bys. The POSITION is very much to 200.

It is sportier than UG3 and comfortable as it now possess split The foot rest on this goes backward too giving you a foot position and proving a stance for you. The Clip Ons an important role and give the sporty feel too.

The Toe Only shifting pattern sugar to the delight. Sitting on the and looking on the tank feels so as it looks beautiful than the UG3 as the flaps also gain attention. Bajaj has done its bit to improve the ride and handling of the and to give you good small bike feel.

Now you can see the DTSi without kick.

Bajaj is confident with there system and has removed the old kick the Bike. I haven’t heard till date complain starting problems even in There is a choke provided the tank. You can simply pull it and the bike in winters if you find it to start.

Bajaj has changed the logo of on the tank too. Previously it was a job. It looked good but, new logo come in and the font for the logo has changed It matches with grey but I can’t say it looks good on colors as well as people different opinions.

Front forks from Pulsar 220 better than UG3 Model. And the disk brake not only good but is able to stop the from 0 – 60 Kmph in less 14 Meters comparing the weight of the that is 147 Kg.

Bajaj has increased the a little bit compared to previous of the bike from 16.5 PS to PS. This bike love as UG3 and you can easily do stoppies too. The has powerspread all over and it feels at all the RPMs. You can pick the bike in the gear from as low as 20 kmph engine knock. I will not go too much and will straight way to the figures.

The figures are not borrowed any other medium and are my own. I managed to reach the speedo speed of 128 Kmph on the Ludhiana – Road. Although reaching and out the best top end from a bike on many things such as Air Air Pressure of tyres, Maintenance

But, these things can be managed. I get my bike serviced and I usually maintain good air when I go on long rides. I had to Chandigarh(95 Km from Ludhiana), (60 Km from Ludhiana), Mohali(90 Km) and never had any problems with trips and bike managed 80 Kmph average speed.

0 – 60 comes in around 4 Seconds

0 – 100 in around 13 Seconds

The thing I am a lot is that you just get on the bike and rev it in any and you are able to overtake almost After overtaking when you at speedo, you will notice easily doing 70 – 80 kmph at Now comes the vibration factor. I mention it clearly.

The UG4 is vibe and is very much refined the old pulsar.

The bike accelerates to 68 kmph. After 68 kmph the starts to vibrate a little bit or Or it seems to vibrate to me as the engine changes. Although you can’t the vibration through Handle bar or rest and only from the After 71 kmph, the vibration

Just rev up the bike and you feel is going at 60 again at a speed of 80 It becomes so smooth at high RPM as to UG3 model that at high shivered a little bit. on long rides on this one is a

Now comes the sound factor. you push the Self, the 180 cc engine to life and you can notice a big change in the sound from UG3 model. The sounds very relaxed and is less noisy than My friends in the neighbourhood used to say to me whenever you pass by the street we easily guess from the sound that you are passing by.

Now a I have not heard the same them and it is quite a time. The from the engine produces a shrillness when you rev down reving up. I love that a lot. When a Pulsar by, I can guess it without looking. the RPM goes past 6000 the sound of the bike changes

It gives an impression that it is Yes! Rev me hard! You can easily anybody. Here is a trick. I done it many times Just take the bike to 80 Pull the clutch back and the accelerator and RPM to 4 or 5000 PRM.

Bajaj Pulsar 180 DTS-i UG

The sound like a sport and sounds like vrrooooommm. So, I can say the is never a problem for a Pulsar.

Now the factor of mileage. Indian will usually ask this whenever you talk about the new of the vehicles. Be it a car or be it a bike. Or you can say Be it a bike or car is even based on performance.

is very important to us too as petrol are going up these days a So, here I am presenting figures. I fill up my tank with 10 of petrol and fill it up again two weeks and I usually travel like 380 – 400 kms. So, I guess, it is around 40 kmpl in the city.

It can give around 45 – 48 kmpl on the and if you ride it nicely and at constant it can deliver between 50 – 55 kmpl. I ride it between 30 – 50 or sometimes 60 in the city.

Now comes an important It costed me around Rs 73000/- paperwork. I brought the bike DADA Motors, Ludhiana. The price for the bike without was 71300.

I guess it costs less in I have read over the somewhere that it costs Rs 68000 in PUNE. So the price around Rs 70000.

I can say that, at the features and the package Bajaj is you at this price, it is pretty I mean have a look at the this bike is loaded everything you need on a bike. buying bikes that around Rs 1,00,000.

If there is a in the market, that can offer you so value for money, then, buy one. You will save Rs 30,000 and you will not be disappointed. I can that, for a true Indian the bike that matters be the one that reaches 100 kmph in 10 seconds than a bike can run 150 kmph in about 25-30

As, Indian roads won’t you to reach this high in this time. Believe me, you have to brake somewhere. We ride bikes in the city traffic is to much. So, a bike can quickly reach 60 kmph is the bike for you.

Moreover, is reasonable too. If you go on a highway, you feel the need to ride at 128 If you are spending more than Rs and you are still buying a bike can’t compete in the city, you need to think over before buying it.

I have around 4300 kms on UG4 and had completed Kms on UG3. I have never anything other than on both the bikes. I have two free services offered by on this bike and the free costed me around Rs 450 – 500 each I have got it laminated for Rs 500.

has offered me to laminate it second for free of cost and they presented me with the free voucher which I need to get after 6 months. Maintenance of a is in your hands. Get the bike at regular intervals of time and it with love, you will have to spend anything. So, I can people who say Pulsars are faulty, I them strongly.

I bought a again as I have never any problem, or otherwise I would brought some other

There are a lot of competitors as Indian market is flourishing these The first competitor is the TVS apache 180 I respect that bike too as it has much similar ergonomics as the 180, but, looking at the resale value that much to people like us, it is not So, I dropped the plan of buying RTR Yamaha has to offer FZ and Fazer in 150

I needed something a little powerful to them at the same Moreover, Pulsar 180 is more packed and is value for money. I agree that Yamaha is an company that has its hands on models like YZF R1 and R6.

Yamaha R15 is a good bike but was too expensive for us to It costs around Rs 1,10,000 and is not quick as is the Pulsar 180 in 0 – 100 range I agree that it has a higher top end and can higher speeds and is more a track tool than a bike package. It can’t be around in tight streets If you are a highway rider and often go to work or anywhere usually, you can R15 but be ready to spend Rs 40,000

Had it been the same price, I have given a second of buying R15 as it is a ver nice bike If you are rich, there should not be any

Hero Honda has to offer and ZMAs in this series. again Pulsar wins in the packed performance and style Bajaj has offered in that Moreover, the ZMA is too bulkier from and too thin from back and the tyre spoils the look of the Hero honda now has to understand they need to go beyond jobs and offer Indian what they need.

they have overpriced bike. Many bike have already done the tests and have proven lack today’s market The little tweaks wont succeed in today’s bike

They need to provide better at a reasonable price.

I described all the pros. Now is the time to at some downs too.

of space inside the seat I do not require it for myself but many do).

Performance should been better than 128 But, weight of bike has increased from the UG3 model. So, expect more.

Go For it !
