Berlin i purchased my pulsar 220 F in sept 2010 , my bike’s color is same as of gurvinder.
See gurvinder’s 180 and my 220 ‘s silver color
I told you website showing wrong color.. !!
i hav another problem in getting my p180….
someone had said to my dad that p180 will wont hav good mileage and it will wont hav good resale value…
and he is asking me to take apache… i hate to take it because a lot of apache in my college and there only few pulsar (all p150)…
Please someone say weather this problems r true or not…
and tell me a way to convince my dad…
All I can tell you is ask your dad to read this blog and many other similars.. or ask Navjot.. He is a good convincer.. He will convince your dad to buy P180 or even 220… cool..
my dad dont read english…
@Berlin : First of all both apache has less resale value than p 180. P 180 has cheaper spare parts than apache . Due to Dtsi technology it gives better mileage than apache if drive sensibly.
Buy p 180 without confusion if you like this, you will be surprised by its performance and mileage !!
Dear Gurvinder,i’ve some queries to be sorted out,
First one is about the functionality of indicators. It is apparent that Pulsar has automatic system for indicators,that it turns off itself while one takes turn. Don’t you find on urs that sometimes it misses this function & indicator keeps blinking even after taking the turn.
Another issue with indicators,sometimes while taking turn to left of right whenever i push the indicator switch,sometimes it blinks only once & then turns off,sometimes for 4 secs,6 secs & so on.Sometimes keeps blinking even after completion of turn.Is this miss function or is there any logic behind this issue which i can’t understand.
One more question,at speed of 40-50 kmph,when switched to 5th gear don’t you feel annoying sound i.e (jharjharana) & loosing that good & roaring sound Wrrooommmmmm.This sound in not found on lower gears or whenever the bike is pushed to higher speed ie 60-80 kmph on 5th gear.
My bike has completed 2400 km & first service has been done.Should i go for 2nd service??
P.S ->> ALL PULSAR OWNERS KINDLY REPLY.
Yes It happens to me sometimes too. But I think the indicators turn off system s totally dependent on the Bike’s Handle Bar’s turning. Because in Cars it is a little bit different, however, in a bike, we turn our handle bars more often so, even while turning right when we turn our handle bar to left for even saving a path hole, the indicators turn off, as , they suppose that we have taken the turn we intended to. It cannot be as accurate as cars as car’s turning radius is a more than bike’s handle bar. When you say it does not turns of after a turn, it could be because you might not have taken a bit more sharper turn than required for indicators to go off.
Switch your bike on, while bike standing try doing it. Put right indicator on turn your bike’s handle bar to right then straighten it, if indicator goes of after few blinks, the indicator system on your bike is working fine. Do it other way as well…
Regarding Sound, yes, the sound of pulsar changes after pushed to a little higher RPM on any gear. We, cannot do much about it.. It depends on the gearing ratios set for this bike.. I think.
hi Gurvinder & Navjot,
I hav Spent a lot of time today for seeing problems in apache rtr 160 and pulsar 180 ug4 and i found that:
apache has vibrating and engine noise in every complaints that could not be solved even by tvs service centre
And in pulsar few people complained problems in clutch and gearbox(this is a repeated complaint). Are u sure it can be avoided by changing the oil? and u didnt hav any problems in gears ah?
And iam not going for apache for damn sure…..
HI can i know what is the millage of Pulsar 220cc dtsi street fighter 2010 edetion for city and highay and also millage of pulsar 180cc ug4 city and highway Thanku
Check the economy section of this page. It is around 40-45 in the city and 45-50 on highway for 180. I think P220 returns around same. Navjot claimed 50kmpl once for his 220 during the times he rode his bike at a speed of a cycle when his bike was new…
@ Gurvinder: Yes thats true that got mileage of about 51.xx km/l on my P220. Mostly driven on highways for first 1000 kms with max 60km/h.
I think my speed was greater than cycles.
@MOMO : In city typical conditions expect : 35-40 km/l
On highways expect : 40- 50km/l depending on your driving style.
Thank u for your reply tackcare.
earlier i asked you questions about p180 ug 4, n now m havin 1 n dat 2 limitd edition, n can you please tell me thdat if i modify it would insurance claim will still be there, n if not then is there any way out ??
Dear Pranav, I would loved to have your query resolved, but, I am not too sure about it, and I do not want to mis guide you. You can check out the same from the company or Bajaj itself from which you want to opt for insurance or may be someone else on this site can help you out. Navjot please reply if you have any information about this..
hav seen any orange p180 in ur streets. if so how does it looks. does it looks better than silver or is silver the best?
hav u seen any orange p180 in ur streets?. if so how does it looks?. does it looks better than silver or is silver the best?
Dear Berlin, People have there own choice, some like orange and some silver, Regarding my choice, I am very much satisfied with silver. Orange Pulsar also looks cool.
hi gurvind i thought u was wrong about the pickup,
i can still getup from 23kmph in 5th gear without knocking,
also one more cons, the gear shift lever is not as smooth as herohonda.
other than else, everything is fine with p180UG4. i own one in black.
my dad also like p220f. i may also get 220f (may be by christmas) wat do u think abt it? will it give mileage above 35kmpl as navjot said? do u hav any bad cons about it?
dont worry berlin p220f is loaded with lot ore features besides mileage.
HID lamps, wide bodykits,high performance intake and muffler unlike p180.
it gives somewhere around 40kmpl in normal mode and around 25 in racing mode. but its worth every paise and is more sturdy design than any other bikes in the range of price.
Berlin : Stop confusing yourself more and more ….. Just buy a bike which you like. !!
Thank u navjot and Gurvinder. my dad likes 220 very much but he is little worried wat if the mileage drops below 35 or 30kmpl. but i am satisfied with both 180 and 220. its my dads wish to choose between two.
Clips on handle bar is optional or tat only available????????
Is it possible to get single bar???
@Ashok kumar.. people have different views.. I let out what my experience was.. you let out yours.. fair enough..
Clip ons come as standard on P180. Not optional. Clip ons look better than single ones.. why you want to get them? Moreover, Clip ons have more bebefits than old style single handle bar. Most of the sports bikes come with clip ons.. They are appealing and help in improving stability.. If you still are stuck on single handle bar, i think you will be able to buy one from the market and it might fit on the bike.. Pulsar ug3 had the single bar, the bits on it were same too..
hi Gurvinder and Navjot,
Decided to take p220F. will book in this week…..
haii i read your blog.. i m planning to buy pulsar 180cc in the first week of jan 2011.. bt many of my friends told me the bike will have complaints after 1-1.5 years of riding.. is it true?? i m a gr8 fan of pulsar.. plz help me yarr..
every bike will hav complaints unless u maintain it well.
And dont mind ur friends.. just take wat ur heart say..
First of all congrats BERLIN !
@MIDHUN : Pulsar demand little more maintenance nothing else… but the pleasure , performance they give you can only be felt.
Berlin suggest you right here… !
thanks both of you.. m going to buy pulsar 180cc.. hope it goes well.. i will get on the first week of 2011..

hi hav prob in choosing color… Hav u seen orange p220 in streets?
if so how does it looks? it looks good in photos:
pulsar 220 was the one which i wuld lve to get.. bt my pappa not allowing me to take it..
Hello Guys.. P180 is an all rounder midhun.. good choice.. go for it… use it as tourer as these days i am doing, travelling 250 kms every 3 days from chandigarh to ludhiana and more than 50 kms inside chandiagrh from ISBT – 43 to Sector 28, Takes me around 250 kms in a single day. Have done 10,000 kms completed on my pulsar day before yesterday, now 6th service due and my bike more and more refined than ever. I do every trip 80 – 90 kms constant trouble free.. no problems till date with the bike only chain and rotatory parts cleaning on my bike with regular servicing including oil change at every 2000 kms now. Very soon I am going to Publish my blog on Maintaining your Pulsar and keeping it trouble free. For those of you who complaint a lot about pulsar will find all there problems answered on that blog. That will include step by step gear lever opening and chain cover opening and cleaning with photos will be there. I have done it succesfully myself recently and cleaned a lot of sludge that accumulated because of oiling the chain. People complaint a lot about chain noise in pulsar. So, I am inspired to write about it. I will find some time after exams and publish it by end of month.. cheeeeeeerrrssssss…..
I use 180 as city bike, sometimes I feel sport oriented, sometimes as cruiser when i love to cruise at slow speeds in good lovely weather and many a times these days as tourer… I love it.. Yes, it requires maintainance, but, you will enjoy it. Recently I got my rear tyre changed as well. I was inspired by Navjot to get IRC this time. Now I got broader tyre on the rear that is 130/70-17″ IRC low profile,, Looks awesome.. I will post pictures on my blog soon.. Costed me 2600 Rs. with fitting from Chandigarh.. lot cheaper than you will get from Bajaj Agencies itself..
