Bajaj Pulsar 135 LS launched

Bajaj Auto today, launched the Bajaj Pulsar 135 LS, with a 135cc 4 valve (first for pulsars) engine.

Priced at Rs. 51,000 (ex-showroom Delhi), Pulsar 135 LS comes with a 135cc 4 valve DTS-i engine, which produces 13.5Ps of power at 9000rpm and 11.4Nm of torque at 7500rpm.


Speaking at the launch of the new Pulsar, Mr. S. Shridhar (CEO Bajaj Auto Two Wheelers) said, “The Pulsar brand has been strongly associated with the sports segment in this country. The new Pulsar 135 LS leads the change in democratising the thrill of biking and accelerating the growth of sports segment in this country.”

Bajaj Pulsar 135 LS press release

Nothing takes away more from the pleasure of biking, than the biggest bane of urban life – traffic! Unending jams, errant drivers and potholed roads turn every ride into a battle, leaving the rider hassled and exhausted. Wouldn’t it be great to have a light, yet zippy set of wheels, something that would let you carve up traffic like a hot knife through butter? The all new Pulsar 135 LS (Light Sport), the first of its kind in India, is designed to do just that. This bike is designed to add a whole new dimension to the motorcycle market by creating a new Light Sports segment.

The Pulsar 135LS is powered with a state of the art 4-valve DTS-i engine delivering 13.5 Ps power. With its chiseled lines and aggressive stance, a sporty split-seat, aluminum clip-on handlebars and a host of other features this power packed 135cc Pulsar delivers performance comparable to other 150-cc. The light kerb weight of only 122 kg gives it a great Power-to-weight ratio of 110.6 Ps/tonne to make it optimum balance of agility and comfort to maneuver hustle-and-bustle of urban traffic.

Equipped with a light-weight yet rigid frame, aided by gas-charged Nitrox shock absorbers at the rear, the Pulsar 135LS is well up to the challenges thrown by the urban jungle. It delivers class-leading top-end power, due to its 2-inlet and 2-outlet valves and ample pulling power in the low and mid-range. This is possible due to the light-weight character of the four smaller valves (as opposed to two heavier valves), which allow the engine to effortlessly rev to an eye-popping 10,500 rpm (electronically limited). And since safety is paramount on any Pulsar, DC lighting and a 240mm disc brake up front comes as standard.

According to Mr. S Sridhar, CEO 2-Wheeler, Bajaj Auto, “The Pulsar brand has been strongly associated with creating the sports segment in this country and our vision is to make India a country of bikers from a country of commuters. The new Pulsar 135LS leads the charge in democratizing the thrill of biking and accelerating the growth of sports segment in this country, in line with the overall Pulsar strategy of broad basing performance.”

The bike will be manufactured from the Chakan Plant and will have a capacity of 35000 bikes per month. Pulsar 135LS is attractively priced at 51,000 ex showroom (Delhi).

A 4-Valve engine is designed for better performance than regular a 2-Valve engine. Combined with the revolutionary DTS-i (Digital Twin Spark-ignition) technology which maximizes combustion to deliver enhanced power and superior mileage with low emissions, the Pulsar 135 LS has one of the most efficient production engines ever.

Bajaj Pulsar 135 LS Features

More power: The 4 valve provides for a greater intake and exhaust area resulting in more power, almost equivalent a 2 valve 150cc engine.
Sustained top end power: The light-weight character of the four smaller valves (as opposed to two heavier valves), which allow the engine to effortlessly rev to an eye-popping 10,500 rpm (electronically limited)!
Sporty ride: Given the wider rpm band, the engine can be revved hard and high in each gear resulting in a genuine sporty ride.
More Mileage: Established superiority of DTS-i blended with 4 valve not only enhances the performance but also returns a very good fuel economy (68.1 km/l certified by ARAI)
More green: Comfortably meets BSIII regulations.

  2. Technically very advanced 135cc bike has been introduced by Bajaj.

  3. I wouldn’t term it as very advanced, but yes it is a step in the right direction and maybe we will get to see more 4 valve pulsars.

  4. It’s Amazing..!!! NEW 135 4 valve technology with DTS-i Engine seems to be one more Milestone set by BAJAJ in its Plate….!!!
    The overall Power & mileage capacity matches to any 150 cc category and to it’s own rival Pulsar itself..

    The more interesting part I tell you the goodies it offers as LS-Light Sport bike..
    New Tank design with attractive scopes,Sexy clip On Handel bars i.e.clone from P180/P220,split seats,new tail light-head light,more power and off course the new light weight feature of the bike.

    A Complete Attractive Package that gone beat any 125 n 150 cc bike …and it’s own rivals off course….!!!!!

    Now WE might see in future the new launches that come up with all new DTS-i 4 valve Engines per cylinder (with Fi or without Fi).
    Especially the new P150,P180,P200,P220,P250 with mono shock and most seen BAJAJ-KTM’s ROCKING SURPRISE PACKAGE-KTM125 “Stunt n Race” would come in way now, within 2-3 months from this Pulsar 135LS launch.

    Adding one more thing, I won’t be surprised by seeing that if current pulsar 150 DTS-i UG4 2009 might be replaced with NEW Pulasr 150
    DTS-i 4 valve(Later on P135LS COULD be upgraded to P150) with Clip ons and mono shock which is missing currently from this segment, some where in APRIL-May 2010(after completing to P150 1 year launch)….
    Thats the way it will differ current most selling P180 UG4-2009…!

    BAJAJ GONE be Rocking in style….NON-sops HITs…Completly UN-STOPPANLE….in near FUTURE… 🙂

  5. Agree…Only NON-liking part is rear mudgard..!!!!!This with the entitled Full chain socket covered , are targeted to all the peoples including the middle age n rural India…!!!

    That I’m sure would be removed by BAJAJ with the launch of few new versions of P135LS in addition, in near future to catch/eye the YOUNGER generation …mainly the College Students…!!
    It may have some more colors,naked half chain cover,tubless tire n bla.bla.. and some differ headlight design…I guess…!!!!

  6. this good to share my idea wwith this plan on this model if the milage should be more still….. other than this its a good plan,,,

  16. I have seen the specifications of the Pulsar 135LS, design looks nice and performance must be good with its 4V technology. Interested at its launching date in Sri Lanka, but no positive reply from Bajaj customer care for my several follow-ups…
    It is really strange and reduces the reputation of Bajaj company… may be something wrong with the bike in launching in Sri Lanka?

  17. is this only 4 valve bike ever in india?

  18. Good to see pulsar 135 i think 135 is subtitute as a pulsar 150. look wise its very good. keep it up Bajaj

  19. Good to see pulsar 135 . keep it up Bajaj.
