The Design

Bajaj plays very strategically with its motorcycles. The DTS-i engine which was once developed for Pulsar 150 is now common on all Pulsar modes. Bajaj Avenger 220 borrows its engine from Pulsar 220 and the subject Pulsar takes styling from the Pulsar 200. 180 receives tank cowl similar to those fund on the Bajaj 200. all the exposed lower cycle parts are dipped in black color with trendy looking alloys.

The instrumentation on this Baja Pulsar 180 DTS-i in India is digital with bold white analog tachometer with a red needle. On the right there is digital screen showing speedometer. Other console instrument panel includes warning lights, trip and fuel guage.

The switches are similar to that of other bikes in the Pulsar family. Handle bar is something new on this ride. Handlebar comes in two piece similar to those found on sports bikes encorporating well sorted cluster of switches. Pulsar 180 DTS-i features self call off indicators so that you never forget to turn them off.

On the right side there is this upside down engine kill switch and uses wide mirrors that comes with poor fitting. For over crowded city rides Bajaj offers two beefy horns to blow things away. Typical Pulsar looking tank receives plastic shoulders making the ride sporty.

Also the fuel tank features rubber scratch guard, below the fuel cap on the rear. The fuel cap is so called aircraft styled filler.

Bajaj Pulsar 180 DTS-i has adopted sporty look and hence features split rear seats with split grab bars. The chain is exposed giving the ride tough and sporty look. The most delectable feature on the bike is its tail LED lights. The rear region of the Pulsar 180 DTS-i is the sportiest section to be seen on Indian street bikes.

Tail mud flap is extended but doesn’t spoil the sporty look of the bike. There is nothing to talk much about the headlight mask as it is similar to Pulsar 150 and 200 and now also the pulsar 220 has the same front. Paint work, plastic and fit quality is much improved in comparison to predecessor.

Engine and Performance

Earlier Pulsar 180 was a power packed machine but this new version is even more powerful as it carries Bajaj patented technology DTS-i. The engine displays same 178.6cc with single cylinder but with twin spark plugs. Sparks from two plugs ensures that the combustion process is faster with efficient fuel burn hence more power consuming lesser fuel. Bajaj also uses its ExhausTEC an exhaust technology which helps the bike to generate more torque on low rpm band.

Fuel is feed to the engine with CV carburetor; Bajaj could have given fuel injection. Even with carburetor the ride performs well. Bajaj Pulsar 180 DTS-i makes maximum power of 17.02 bhp and churns out a torque of 1.45kgms @6500rpm. There is not much difference in performance between the old and the now Bajaj Pulsar 180 DTS-i in India .

Pulsar 180 DTS-i communicates well with the rider and does all the talking with exceptional throttle response. With glowing throttle response the engine is ever ready to touch the red line without much drama. Gearshift are settled sport style with one down and 4 up pattern through a single toe liver.

Pulsar `80 with its charging engine does a 0-60kmph figure in just 4.83 seconds and passes the 100kmph mark taking 14.18 seconds. Pulasr 180 marks a top speed of 120kmph practically though the ride has some speedometer errors in its digital console which was absent on the earlier model.

Riding Impression

Pulsar uses twin downtube frame riding on 17 inch rims on both the ends. Swing arm on the rear now is egg-shaped replacing rectangular used in before models. Front forks are now made healthier measuring 37mm, both of the wheels are wrapped with tubeless typres.

Suspension on the rear is typical to Bajaj bikes using gas filled twin suspension. Clip-on handle bars continue to offer straight and comfortable riding position, footpeg position is little towards rear. Seats are padded well for such kind of ride with rear seat sloping towards rider seat.

Handling and control is a blessing on Indian road. Pulsar 180 keeps riders confidence high all time, thanks to its updated front forks and sticky tube free tyres. 180 feels planted on the road while cornering and on straights.

Brakes are also upgraded to measure 260mm disc in the front with biting caliper that brings 147kg to complete halt from 60kmph in just 15.6 meters.
