The BS6 Pulsar 150 is available in a standard disc brake variant, as well as a twin disc brake variant, and now comes equipped with fuel injection system. The FI system has been designed in-house at Bajaj Auto's state-of-the-art R&D centre, and is said to ensure seamless power delivery, feather-touch start and optimum fuel efficiency. The BS6 version of the Pulsar 150 will be available in two colours - Black Chrome and Black Red.

The Pulsar 150 continues to be powered by the same 149.5 cc, single-cylinder, four-stroke, two-valve, single overhead cam (SOHC) engine, but the state of tune has changed with the addition of fuel injection.
