    Default New Pulsar!! : Pics in Overdrive Sept 03

    The new pics of p-180 DTS-i are out..on overdrive......it looks plain ugly..the old round headlamp was much more sexier!!but well..it has 0-60 in 4.2 secs and top speed of 128!!zooom!!3000 over old pulsar.. pulsar 150DTS-i is out too.....guys...its ugly..fairing is stupid!but engine is good!and overdrive is as usual biased ...in favour of bajaj...it claims better topspeed than karizma!anyways...lets wait and watch!

    Nothing great abt it..its looks fast on paper, but is not !!!! And I can prove it, get in a 180 DTSi against a Karizma on a 1-on-1 drag, and see for urself, then b it 0-60, 0-100, or even 0-whatever the top speed of ur 180 would b.

    And what r Bajaj trying to do ? All they can do is copy copy and copy. Copied the head-lamp concept from Karizma by giving in 2 pilots and one roundish head lamp, a visor shape of the R1/R6, and the bikini fairing of a CBZ ?

    And what abt stability ?????? Hero Honda still rules.

    Hey RASH... Why r u so angry with these bajaj guys ya... Look after all one has to improve so that they can stay in the market where the customer is the king.. I think u r a die hard fan of HH, and can't listen anything rude abt HH. Although to a certain extent u r rite.... When Bajaj says that except the Crank Pin everything is built in-house at Pune, they shouldn't copy and paste anyone else's design. Can't they design a particular bikini fairing on their own. I agree that they shouldn't adopt any of karizma's styling... Well, but still i haven't seen the pics yet, but i hope bajaj does a good job this time, to give a run for HH. But Rash, just think.. Bajaj themselves have designed an engine, which many of us like ya... forget about the styling... Its certianly not as good as the CBZ also, but in terms of performance, its very good, and u will have to congratulate those guys who built it here in Pune, and not in NOIDA, where Technology, expertise, styling, looks, materials, except the stability is adopted from HONDA (Hero Honda's Father).
    Cant HH still build a bike on their own, when they can build cycles ?

    plz note tht even karishma has copied and can be called cheap but expensive.performence wise if bhp of pulsar 180 (new)is same it will be diff.for it to be faster by just optimising ignition etc.looks r subjective too.
    plz no wars pals.let the bike come out.

    Ok guys, sorry for any harsh comments I may have made against Bajaj. No hard feelings.

    Anyway, for all those who don't have the copy of overdrive, I'll try and post the pics tonight.

    The head lamp is clear-lens type. Its smaller than that of the Karizma, but looks a bit similar. Its more rounded, and looks like a Passion / Freedom headlam from the side view. Its got two pilots in the corners like the Karizma, but pulled back a lot, as if placed in two deep grooves. The headlamp in roundish. Fortunately nothing like the F***ed up Aspire. Somehow I feel that the old look with the round headlamp was better, it surely does'nt look "MALE" now. The exhaust is now longer, till the edge of the wheel. Clear type tail and a small lamp for the no. plate.

    The power of the Pulsars have also increased. The 150 now produces 13bhp and the 180 produces 16bhp. Acceleration times have also bettered with 0-90 in 10.49s.

    Stability is better but still not the best, still is nervous in the cornering deparment as earlier. And the clutch which is now claimed to b better is still creating a few hiccups.
