The new Bajaj Pulsar 150 Neon ABS has been priced at Rs 68,250 compared to Rs 65,248 at which the non-ABS model used to retail.

Bajaj recently launched the new Pulsar 180, giving it the same styling and appearance of its elder sibling the Pulsar 220F and badged it as the Pulsar 180F. The company introduced the motorcycle in Neon colour theme, the same treatment that it offered to the Pulsar 150 a few weeks back.

The engine is good for producing a maximum power output of 16.8 bhp along with a peak torque of 14.2 Nm.
On the other hand, the Bajaj Pulsar 150 Neon gets power from the same 149cc, single cylinder, air-cooled engine mated to a five-speed transmission.
