New tank extensions make the Neon look similar to the more expensive Pulsar 150.

Bajaj Auto has launched an updated Pulsar 150 Neon with purely cosmetic changes. The Pulsar 150 Neon gets new, body-coloured tank extensions that are identical to what the premium Pulsar 150 variants get.

This could be seen as a way to distinguish the Pulsar 150 Neon from its Pulsar 125 Neon sibling that was launched a few months back. Before this update, the only way to visually distinguish the Neon variants of these bikes was their badging.

Mechanically, the Pulsar 150 remains the same. The bike is powered by a 149.5cc, air-cooled, single-cylinder engine that develops 13.8hp and 13.4Nm of torque; coupled with a 5-speed transmission. Most of the other components on the Pulsar have remained unchanged for a while. The telescopic fork, gas-charged monoshock and alloy wheels, for example, are the same as before.

As far as competition is concerned, the updated Pulsar 150 goes up against the TVS Apache RTR 160. Its Rs 75,200 (ex-showroom Delhi) price tag remains unchanged following the update.
