Most of the fact of Bajaj Pulsar 150 DTSi is good only but fuel consuming rate. Though, company claimed it’s better fuel efficient technology but riders yet to make any final statement of it.

It’s looks is considerably alright and customer service is also better than most. Besides, due to the demand, it’s resale value is also good.
