A report in NDTV Auto says that Bajaj is likely to launch Pulsar 150NS, the smaller sibling of 200NS, in India in the next two months.

Powered by a 149.5cc single-cylinder air-cooled engine, which can pump out a power of 16.3bhp of power at 9,000rpm and a peak torque of 13Nm at 7,500rpm, Pulsar 150 NS takes design cues from Pulsar 200NS.

While the transmission will be taken care of by a 5-speed gearbox, a telescopic upfront and monoshock unit will do the suspension duties. The bike will have a fuel tank capacity of 12-litre and in terms of dimensions, the Pulsar 150NS will measure 2,105mm in length, 800mm in width and 1,220mm in height with a wheelbase of 1,363mm. Keeping in mind the pricing strategy of Bajaj for the Indian market, Pulsar 150NS is likely to be priced at around ₹75,000.

When launched, Pulsar 150NS will be competing against the likes of Suzuki Gixxer and Hero Xtreme Sport in the domestic market.

Meanwhile, Bajaj's dealers in Bengaluru opened bookings for its newly-launched Pulsar AS200 with an advance payment of ₹10,000. Pulsar AS 200 draws power from the 199.5cc, single-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine, which can churn out 23bhp of power at 9,500rpm and 18.3Nm of peak torque at 8,000rpm and is priced at ₹ 91,550 (ex-showroom, Delhi).
