India’s most popular Pulsar, the Bajaj Pulsar LS135 is no longer available in the official website of Bajaj. They had updated their Pulsar range back in December 2016. The Pulsar LS135 had also recieved a few updates on mechanicals and design. However when the refreshed lineup of the Pulsar series was updated in January 2018, the smallest of the lot didn’t find a place on it.
According to recent developments, Bajaj will continue to manufacture the LS135 for exporting it globally. It is also stated that this is due to the lack of demand in the indian market. The Pulsar LS135 was launched with BV-IV emission compliant 134 cc air cooled engine with a single cylinder. Paired with a five speed transmission gearbox this engine was capable of producing 13.3 BHP power at 9000 rpm and 11.4 Nm at 7500 rpm of torque. The bike offered efficient mileage with a twin spark ignition engine. The bike came along a 240 mm disc brake at front and 130 mm drum brake at the rear.
The bike was available in 3 colour variant , namely Blue, Black and Red. The design was aggressive in nature with headlamp, integrated to DC circuit, and a combination of twin pilot lamps offers an illumination which works equally well on disturbed tarmacs and night rides. Enveloped by a cloth the fuel tank was sturdy but not as impressive as the other Pulsar series lineup. The Pulsar LS135 came with black alloy wheels.
LS135 was 1995 mm in length , 765 mm in width and 1045 mm in height. Its had a ground clearance of 165 mm and saddle height of 805 mm. Its Kerb weight was 121 kg and wheelbase was 1325 mm. It has a decent acceleration upto 0-60 kmph in just 5.1 secs. It returns 58 kmpl-65 kmpl of fuel. The bike had a price tag of Rs. 72466 (ex-showroom Delhi). There are reasons for the bike to be discontinued like, the price hike it would reach the moment it would install the ABS, which isn’t actually necessary for a 125 cc bike. In the past a lot of Bajaj bikes got discontinued including Platina 125 so now the Pulsar LS135 joins the list.
