    I purchased my first bike - Pulsar 135 LS (Midnight Black) on 5th Jan 2010. I took the first delivery of the bike in my city. The ex-showroom price is Rs. 52,347 and the on-road price is Rs. 57,960.


    My First Day with my BIKE :-

    Way to Showroom

    The Showroom Manager called my father at 10:30 a.m. on 5th January 2010 that the bike is ready to be delivered. He came back home from his office and I along with my father and mother went to showroom in our Chevy Spark (I was driving) at 11:30 a.m.

    First Look on the Bike

    At the side of the entrance, there was this black beauty (Midnight Black P135LS). It was looking very good. I can't help myself from admiring it and feeling it closely. The Showroom Manager told me that 8 bikes have arrived and all are Black (I was a bit disappointed as I was inclined towards the Red colour and not a single piece of red colour was present). As I was the first to book the bike (My father booked it for me on 12th Dec 2009), he called me first to choose my bike from the 8 bikes present.

    Took a Test Ride

    First I stated to take a test ride of the Bike present at the Showroom (The rest 7 bikes were at the godown). He promptly agreed to my wish. One showroom guy took the bike out to the road and handed over to me. I got on it's back and that guy became the pillion. I thumbed the self starter and voila ! it got started on the first crank, but the note was not pulsar but a bit different which I think is better. I pulled the clutch and shifted to first gear. The clutch is very soft and the gear shift is butter smooth. Then I took off. I upshifted to 2nd gear. I didn't even felt the change of gear on my toe. It is very smooth shifting and no false shift happens. I increased the throttle and started twisting my right wrist more and more. It has a great pull. I virtually could not fell that there is a pillion. I took the speed to 60 kmph and rpm to 5.5k and then the showroom guy poked me not go above 60 as it is a new bike. I decreased the speed and tested the front disc brake. It is very much adequate. It has a great stopping power and the front fork is also doesn't get depressed much so there is no fear of toppling. In 4th gear it again pulled effortlessly from 15 kmph to 50 kmph. I was also very impressed by its handling. I could also cut through the oncoming traffic efficiently (As advertised by Bajaj - Traffic Cutter). The turning radius is small. So, it won't create any problem during U-turn in small streets. It was so light weight that I couldn't almost feel it's weight while riding with pillion. Then I returned to the showroom. I was very much pleased with my first time riding this new bike.

    Decision Time

    My mother was initially against the Black colour so she enquired when the red colour will be available. The showroom manager politely replied that within a month they won't be getting any fresh stock of P135LS. So, for the Red colour, minimum waiting period of 1.5 month. But, I couldn't wait that long, so, somehow convinced my parents to let me take the Black. After a while, they agreed and my father made the full payment.

    My Bike from godown to showroom

    The other 7 bikes were at the showroom. So, I went with that showroom guy to the godown whick was half km away on a Discover 100 being the pillion. After reaching there, I saw huge stock of all the bikes of Bajaj and only 7 P135LS. One guy was fitting the RVMs on the bikes. He told me that every thing except the RVMs came factory fitted. I choosed one bike, saw that there was only 1 km on ODO. So, they have not yet done test ride of it. The guy started my bike and revved it on neutral to 6k rpm for 3-4 times and then told me it is okay and I can take it. So I sat on it and thought of testing the kick starter. So, kicked it and I was surprised as it was so effortless and came to life on one kick only. I was amazed. Then came back to showroom riding it cutting through heavy traffic. The guy with whom I went there, left the Discover 100 there and took another P135LS and came to showroom along with me.

    Washing and Teflon Coating

    The bike was taken for Washing. After the washing, it was left for drying. When it was completely dry, it was teflon coated. Meanwhile, I signed on the papers and completed all the formalities. They gave the Money Receipt, Tax Invoice and Gate Pass. They also gave a key ring.

    Back to Home

    I took my bike out of the showroom and went near our car. My father and mother sat in the car and this time he drove the car and told me to come behind him which I had to follow. Now, I tested the Horn. It is very loud and I was amazed by his sound which is not typical Pulsar but very sharp. On the way, we stopped at a HP Petrol Pump and I filled in Rs. 100 Normal Petrol. Then, I went home.

    Evening Ride - To my Friend's home

    In the evening, I went to my friend's home (He has a P150 UGIV purchased just 5 months back) in the same locality riding my new possession. I honked the horn in front of his gate. He came out, a bit surprised hearing a new horn sound. His jaws dropped seeing me on my new P135LS. Firstly, he exclaimed 'Why did you took the 135, you should have taken the 150?'. I calmly told him to sit on the back and let's go for a short ride. He agreed and we went hopping through the streets of our big locality. While returning, just 100-200 m away from his house, he requested me let him ride to his house. I accepted his request after his repeatitive requests. Then, he rode to his house. After reaching there, his mother also came out and exclaimed that the bike is having very good looks. He then admitted that I have done the correct thing by purchasing this sweet bike. He enjoyed the ride on this more than on his P150. I said him ... ya you are right this is a very pleasurable bike and I have fallen in love with it at first sight.

    Default Engine Oil Level Query ???

    Below are the pics of my bike's engine oil level.

    Could somebody please tell me whether the engine oil level is alright or is it low ?
    This is my first bike and so I do not know if the oil level is correct. If it is low, should I take my bike to service centre and get it top up-ed ?

    Your Oil Level is correct.. the oil level should be between the two horizontal marks on the Oil Level check window.

    It should not be above the top horizantal bar (the excess oil might cause the cylinder head to leak).. and if the engine oil level goes below the lower horizantal mark, it means that it is time for engine oil top up.


    Tip: Read the owners's manual throughly, info like this (and more) will be provided in it.
