Bajaj Auto has removed the Pulsar 135 from its official website for India. After confirming with our dealer sources, we came to find out that they have stopped receiving units of the said model. The new Bajaj Pulsar 135 was the smallest member of the company's popular Pulsar line up. Our dealer source further confirmed to us that the sales of the Bajaj Pulsar 135 have been on a constant low since the last few months. The company had introduced the new updated Pulsar 135 with better paint schemes a few months back but that also did not work in its favour. For this reason, the manufacturer was left with no option but to retire the motorcycle from the Indian two-wheeler market.
