undefined My First Bike: I have a black bajaj pulsar Dtsi 150 cc (digital).It has got good looks and that was the very first thing that made me attracted towards it.I bought it in December 2006, so at that time I just had two options in Bajaj; the 150cc model which I bought and the 180cc model. When it comes to vehicles, I prefer only black color and the 180 cc model was full black with black alloy wheels which were some how not that appealing, so I finalized the 150cc model with.

I took it from Mohan Bajaj (Thane). The staff was good and gave me all the details of the bike and procedures of booking and payment. I got my bike in a week.


Great Features:

The main features of this bike are 150cc engine with 13.5 ps power, alloy wheels, auto-ignition, 5 gears (1 down, 4 up), auto-off indicators, front disc brake, 15 liters fuel tank. The looks of this bike are stunning as I said before. The shape of the tail is different from the old DTSi models. It’s given a pointed look and adds to the beauty of the bike. The tail lamp is also new and suits the bike very well. Auto-off indicators are inspired from car and get off automatically once we take the turn. This new feature is very innovative and helpful.


My Bike, My Freedom:

The bike has a very good pick-up. The riding experience is very good. It comfortable to handle and control. My first preference when it comes to vehicles is power and this bike definitely fits into my list. It’s easy to handle even in traffic. The braking is also good. Applying a 50-50 front and rear brake brings the vehicle to halt very comfortably. I got a top speed of 117 km/hr. Again I would say not recommended as it can be dangerous. However the bike was stable even at such high speed. However, the pillion might get a little uncomfortable in longer journeys.


Worthy Mileage(or average as everyone calls it):
The mileage of the bike is also very handsome. I got a mileage of around 55kmpl which is pretty good for such a powerful bike. Even after using it for around 3 years and 9 months, the mileage is remarkable. I still get around 50kmpl and not to forget, the riding experience still remains the same.

Very Costly Spare-parts:
The only bad thing about the bike is that it has got costly spare parts. Though I faced no problem till 3 years, I had to change the exhaust due to little damage. Also the indicator and horn switch panel stopped working. I guess water mite have short-circuited it. The exhaust cost me a good 3300 bucks and another 660 for the switch panel. So the spare-parts are very costly.

Grab One to Rule the Roads:
Over-all a very good bike. In fact, the best bike in 150cc segment. If 150cc is your limit (generally parents don’t put a limit to budget nowadays, they put a limit on the power of the bike), Pulsar 150cc digital is the ultimate machine for you..
