Black front forks.

Broader rear tyre (120/80 x 17 – tubeless MRF zapper).

Bigger disk brake (260 mm).

Higher rear end.

Open chain (as p200 and p220).

And tank fairing flaps as standard.

Summary:

Awesome

Faults:

BRAKES... Major issue. They get loose very often.

Colour.

Touches 90 easily, but going beyond 100 takes a bit of effort.

General Comments:

What can I say... AWESOME. Got my freedom.

Went to purchase a 150cc, but 2nd gear on 180cc... fell in love with it. Pick up on 2nd gear is smooth and quick, just the kind suited for heavy traffic. This bike will go a long way ahead.

Previous motorcycleBajaj Karizma

Summary:

Dangerously powerful

Faults:

The exhaust smells like burning rubber when I drive it over 100 km/h. I was scared that something might be wrong with the engine, but later I discovered that the black paint on the exhaust burns at high temperatures and smells like burning rubber. So not one worry about this smell. I am writing this because every owner of this bike will be in tension because of this smell.

Summary:

Amazing

Faults:

Side stand clamp broken.

Tyres just don't hold under heavy braking.

Gearbox needs improving.

General Comments:

This motorcycle is seriously fun without burning a hole in your pocket. I get an average of 48km/ltr on the highway and in the city. For a 180 cc it's amazing. If you're really careful on the highway it even gives 58km/ltr...

Here's a few tips - shift at 4500 rpm, and when it's in top gear, ride between 50-70.

Sure, all you guys who get 30-35 either don't know to ride or always rip the bike..

The worst its ever given was 34 when I was ripping the bike and having a heavy person sitting on the bike.

About the Pulsar v/s Karizma - to me, under normal riding, you wont find any difference. The pickup is the same. Only the Karizma has a better top end and top speed..

Other areas where the Karizma has its advantages are the long wheel base and a superb gearbox. But one thing the Pulsar has got in its favour is a its fuel economy of 48km/ltr against a Karizmas 36!! And not to forget Bajajs cheap spares..

Comments made by the author are very honest, thanks buddy. It would have been even better if you could throw some light on your own experience on p180, example - kilometers run, specific benefits, comforts.

The rest of the comments are helpful, thanks.

I never get an average above 38. In fact on the highway it went down to 35.

Summary:

It justifies its statement (definitely male)

Faults:

I feel only the seating part should be remodelled.

General Comments:

It's just amazing. I think there is no other bike in its segment. Thanks to Bajaj for a wonderful product

like the Pulsar.

The CV carburattor delivers excellent power & mileage, and regarding the clutch - it's the latest and advanced version with six plates, which gives incredible pickup..

Coming to handling and control - once again it's the boss. The front disk brakes are just superb.... and thanks to MRF for the tyres.
