Bajaj Auto, once a company known only for its scooter and mopeds, is making giant strides in the market by offering affordable bikes of higher order. Although its efforts were on crescendo right from its earlier bikes, like Caliber and Boxer, which were manufactured in collaboration with Kawasaki, the fragrance of success is starting to diffuse throughout the Indian markets with the Pulsar series of bikes that were launched for the first time in 2001.

This success story of Bajaj has taken yet another turn with the advent of launch of its latest version in the series with 135 cc engine as a new gem to its crown. It is because PULSAR 135 LS is the world's first 4 valve DTS-i bike. With this Bajaj has raised the standards of affordable bikes on Indian roads.

Its stylish sporty looks are the main reasons for the entire craze for it. Its bikini headlights, sharp LED tail light, aircraft type fuel tank lid and a streamlined muscular body light in weight as the name suggests makes its looks complete with élan. It is available in the market in two colors "Midnight Black" and "Passion Red".


This street fighter Bajaj Pulsar 135 LS comes up with a 135cc, air-cooled, 4 valve single cylinders ignited with twin spark technology which seems to be the trademark of a typical Bajaj bike of the new era. This four stroke engine gives 13.5PS@9,000rpm of maximum power and a torque of 11.4Nm@7,500rpm, 5-speed gear transmission system. The air-fuel mixture from carburetor is ignited by a single spark plug that is controlled by an 8 bit microprocessor chip (C.D.I) which drives the best performance from the combustion chamber.

It works together with Throttle Response Ignition Control System (TRICS) III giving it an artificial intelligence to give a performance that varies with load. To be specific, it works with the throttle. The bike weighs only about 122 kg which plays an important role in quicker acceleration. This has been achieved through the alloy wheels and body made of carbon fiber. The Exhaust TEC (Torque Expansion Chamber) has taken care of the exhaust system for the bike.
