20 Pulsar 135LS with new rear fender design, for India..!!

The Pulsar 135LS gets a minor but significant redesign.. for India

When the Pulsar 135LS was first launched in India, I had mentioned that the rear fender was an eyesore (though very functional in keeping out water splash) of an otherwise brilliant and fresh design.

..the best sub-150 cc motorcycle in the country has just got better..!!

To everyone's surprise, the pulsar 135LS was launched in Indonesia with a better design rear fender. Just as we were starting to feel being being left out with "step motherly" treatment, Bajaj has given the Indian Pulsar 135LS the same "split two piece" rear fender design as well.

What's good for Indonesia is certainly good for India..!!







What's new in the Pulsar 135LS now?

  • Split two piece rear fender design


  • All black engine


  • Half chain case with "O"-ring sealed chain


  • Redesigned saree guard

It can be clearly seen from the above "before" and "after" photos that the new design makes the Pulsar 135LS perfectly proportional from every angle.

Also as far as I know, there is no change in the price of the bike.

The split rear fender is composed of two matt back plastic pieces. One of the plastic piece (the outside one) is held by a rod and the other piece (the inside one) is actually integrated with the half chain cover. The quality of the plastic used is top notch and the entire set up feels very very sturdy.

With the split rear hugger and the half chain cover, the rear now looks sharp and light and goes perfectly well with the "Light Sports" theme of the Pulsar 135LS. Even the "butterfly" shaped saree guard flows with the design quite well.

By the way I also loved the "The road is my playground" theme. With the redesign, the best sub-150 cc motorcycle in the country has just got better..!!

THE BIKE IS GOOD, BUT IS GOOD AMONG LOTS OF BAJAJS. THE SPECIAL COSMETIC TREATMENT FOR THIS BIKE IS JUST PULSAR TAG. BAJAJ SHOULD UPGRADE ATLEAST ITS HEADLIGHT DESIGN (LIKE CLASSIC PULSAR'S ROUNDED ONE). IF LOTS OF BAJAJ PARKED ROADSIDE, ITS HARD TO RECOGNISE P135. IF IT IS A DIFFERENT BIKE FROM OTHER SUB 150 CC BAJAJ, THEN IT DESERVE DEFFERENT IDENTIDY.
@ PAYENG,
WHATS UR OPINION ABOUT ROUNDED OR CLASSIC (READ.. DIFFERENT) HEADLIGHT OVER P135. THE CURRENT FACE OF BIKE IS NOT BAD, BUT IT CANT SATIFFY TO ITS NEW DNA.

I have a Pulsar 135 with single rear fender. Can this be modified easily to the new split rear fender?

S.P - Biker Next Door said...

@Above,

considering that there is not much of a change modifying your bike to fit the split hugger should not be too difficult
