Pulsar has been established as a successful model since it entered the Nepali market. Although brands like Yamaha, TVS, Honda, Suzuki and Hero are trying to meet the sales of Pulsar 150 in the market now, the demand and popularity of Pulsar series has been much higher than other companies. Although other companies have brought new models to compete with the Pulsar series at different times, the models brought by other companies have not been able to compete with it.
The 150 cc capacity motorcycle has a different identity in the Pulsar series. The company has been selling it in regular model classic and TD (disc brakes on both wheels) variants. A few days ago, TVS had started selling its popular motorcycle RTR 160 Four V single disc variant. Jagdamba Motors has started selling it at Rs 2,000 more than the Pulsar 150 TD. The double disc variant is priced at Rs 2,89,900 while the single disc variant of the RTR is priced at Rs 272,900. Which is about 17 thousand rupees cheaper. The price set by the company clearly aims to compete directly with the Pulsar 150 TD.
Pulsar 150 TD has been selling in large numbers in recent days. To establish itself in this, TVS has launched a single disc variant of RTR 4V. Differences can be found in the design, power and other aspects of these two motorcycles. In this way, it can be estimated that the most famous motorcycle of Bajaj will be worth hitting by the successful motorcycle of TVS. The differences between the Bajaj Pulsar 150 TD and the Apache RTR 160 Four V signal disc are as follows.
Bajaj Pulsar 150 TD has 149.5 cc signal cylinder air cooled engine. The engine generates 13.8 bhp of power at 8000 rpm and 13.4 Nm of torque at 6000 rpm. It has a 5-speed gearbox connected. The RTR 160 signal disc has a 159.7 cc signal cylinder liquid cooled engine. The engine generates 16.2 bhp of power at 8250 rpm and 14.8 Nm of torque at 6000 rpm. It has a 5-speed gearbox connected.
The Bajaj Pulsar 150 has a fuel storage capacity of 15 liters while the RTR 160 has a fuel capacity of 12 liters. ARAI has certified that Bajaj Pulsar 150 has a mileage of 65 km per liter and TVS has a mileage of 50 km per liter. However, the off-road mileage of both these motorcycles will be less than claimed.
Both the wheels of Bajaj Pulsar 150 TD have disc brakes. Similarly, RTR 160 has a signal disc. The Bajaj Pulsar 150 has 260mm disc brakes on the front and 230mm on the rear. Similarly, RTR 160 has 270 mm disc at the front and 130 mm drum brake at the rear. Both motorcycles have the same 17-inch tubeless tires and alloy wheels.
The Bajaj Pulsar 150 has an anti-friction telescopic suspension on the front and a 5-step adjustable nitrox shock absorber on the rear. The RTR 160 has telescopic suspension at the front and monoshock suspension at the rear. Finally, the Bajaj Pulsar is a motorcycle with low mileage and operating costs. Similarly, RTR 160 Four is a motorcycle that is becoming successful due to its stylish design and powerful engine. There seems to be fierce competition between these two motorcycles with the same price.
