    Your friends speak CRAP. Pulsr 135 is a totally different bike, XCD was failure, but this is surely not. Visit this page and ask the owners about the bike instead:

    Yes already gone through this thread and only then I decided on going for Pulser 135 LS. Am satisfied if it is not the same XCD 135. Just wanted to build up confidence before I book. Thanks !!!

    Well, you can't say that friend of you was speaking crap. Just that he has misunderstood. The Pulsar 135 was initially developed under the name, 'XCD Sprint' but the Bajaj marketing knew that wont work from the failure of other XCD variants, so renamed it Pulsar 135, thereby taking advantage of the Pulsar brand name. As you can see, that trick worked out well.

    PS : I didnt, in any manner, mean to say Pulsar 135 is a lesser bike in any sense. Its a wonderful machine with enogh punch to keep up with most 150 ccs. No hard feeling to any one.

    To those planning to buy one - Go ahead, eyes closed. This bike wont let you down.

    If possible try to ride(rip) P135 and xcd 135 side by side and then u will know what is the difference between 2 valve engine and a 4 valve engine

    The P135LS got a mild styling revision sometime last year. I'm surprised that it hasn't come up at all in this discussion. Now it comes with and all-black theme for the lower body, and a similar tyre hugger to the P150, combined wit an FZ-like guard at the rear swingarm pivot.

    BTW, Yamaha's new SZ-R is in the same price range. How do they compare? Has anyone ridden both?
    This sig made the Kessel Run in less than twelve parsecs. And if you don't know what that means, you're not old enough to. :D

    Thanks all of you guys for the inputs and suggestions. I have booked pulsar 135 Red today. Am expecting the delivery tomorrow evening or Saturday. I have a 2 quick questions...
    1. Immediately after taking the delivery i am planning to replace the stock tyres with Tubeless Tyres. Could someone suggest me what tyre is best for this pulsar machine. I am not technically sound with bikes, so it wuld be very benificial if some one could help me. I read some where (not sure where i read) MRF softgrip tubless is the best for Plusar 135, but am not able to recollect the name and the tyre size. Could some one shed more light on this please ????
    2. Also can I exchange the stock tyres for the New MRF Tubeless tyres in chennai? If yes where can i do it...?

    Once Again I thank all those who posted in this thread, this thread made me take a clear dession.

    the same decision i was about to make about the tyres but couldnt because the bajaj guys couldnt exchange them then...and later before i could find any dealer to exchange them i had already completed 4500kms

    about the tubeless ones there is a lot discussed back here...mainly about its advantages...but i would like to point out about the tubed ones...the stock eurogrip ones that i currently have...they havnt had a single puncture for all the 7500kms they have run despite of continuous touring and offroading....(i hope i dont get a puncture as soon as i say that )

    for the tubeless...the mrf zapper,pirelli sport demon are good...not sure about the michelins....
    A very good and safe biker not only because he can pop up either of the wheels,scrape his knees on a corner or go fast and make it look stylish but because he very well knows his limits and capabilities and has the patience to learn about others and ride safe ! :)

    well to be frank...yes its comfortable but would be a problem for the pillion to get on the rear seat as its a bit higher than the other bikes...girls or for that matter even some guys have hurt their legs while getting down from the pillion seat...but that is just once in a while...
