Comparing: Bajaj New Pulsar 150cc DTSi VS Honda Unicorn Alloy

Another pair of bikes worth getting a comparison is the Bajaj New Pulsar 150cc DTSi and the Honda Unicorn Alloy. Both the bikes were launched to give make life difficult for the other. If not totally, the respective companies were pretty much successful in increasing their market with their best bikes of the times.

The Bajaj New Pulsar 150cc DTSi is the launching model of the 150cc class by Bajaj. The new features, which now have become very common and old; those of alloy wheels and self start are incorporated by the company. It also comes with the traditional kick start option.

The Honda Unicorn is a strong bike with 150cc engine. Like the Pulsar, Honda Unicorn too has a self start and kick start option. The overall designing of the bike is very appealing and the color scheme used is the icing on the cake.

Without doubt, the Pulsar 150cc DTSi is a world class bike in itself. The 4 stroke, single cylinder, air cooled engine works magic for the bike. Pulsar generates a maximum power of 14.09 PS and has a high torque of 12.76 Nm at 6, 5000 rpm. Pulsar incorporates 5 speed transmission gearbox.

The Honda Unicorn comes in 4 stroke, single cylinder and air cooled OHC engine. The displacement of the engine is 149.1cc. The Unicorn generates maximum power 13.3 bhp at 8000 rpm and gets a maximum torque of 12.75 Nm at 5500 rpm. Like the Pulsar, the Unicorn too has 5 speed transmission gearbox.

The Bajaj New Pulsar 150cc DTSi is 2035 mm in length, 750 mm in width and 1165 mm in height. It comes with a wheelbase of 1320 mm and a ground clearance of 165 mm. Plasma Blue, Mid Night Black, Misty Grey Silver and Cocktail Wine Red are the colors in which you can get the bike of your dream. These colors are quiet attractive and can allure you to purchase the bike.

The length, height and width of the Honda Unicorn Alloy are 2095 mm, 1100 mm and 750 mm respectively. The wheelbase of the Unicorn is arguably the widest in the category. It is 1340 mm. It helps in giving good control over the bike and chances are very less that it will lose the ground control. Naturally, it gives a pleasurable riding experience.

The Pulsar 150cc Dtsi has tyres of 90/90 X 17 for the front wheel while 120/80 for the rear. The tubeless tyres take your headache away of repairing the bike every time it is punctured. It also gives you pester free riding experience.

The Honda Unicorn Alloy has the front tyre of 2.75X18 specifications and rear specification is 100/90-18. Like the Pulsar 150cc, the Unicorn Alloy too has puncture-resistant tyre. However, the tuff-up tube is used only for the rear tyre only. This is rather hard to believe for a company of Honda’s caliber.

As far as the suspension is concerned, the Pulsar has 135 mm stroke, telescopic shock absorbers for the front wheels while the triple rated spring, 5-way adjustable with 105 mm travel Nitrox takes care of the rear. Big front and rear disk brakes are outstanding enough to stop the bike even at high speed.

Mono fork and telescopic fork take care of the suspension. It ensures a comparatively easy ride if the other bikes in the same category is concerned. Mono suspension and larger wheelbase ensure a smooth ride with the Honda Unicorn. The disc and the drum brakes make an excellent pairing to control the bike even more effectively.

Considering the price tag of the bike, it is worth every penny you pay for.

  1. Unicorn is the best bike in the year of 2010 /11 so i advice all to go for unicorn instead of pulsar which will get trouble during the riding…………And also one thing should be highlighted towards Honda unicorn that the bike is kind of the roads and rocks the roads!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  2. Pulsar rocks!!!!!!!!! unicorn will never beat pulsar. because it has DTSi and many digital instruments. that all are missing in unicorn. my pulsar is giving the mileage of 55kmpl in the city and 59kmpl in highways. but my friends unicorn is just giving 45kmpl.

    unicorn will never beat pulsar in the pickup.

    pulsar allways rocks in all catagories style, pickup, mileage, ride comfort.

Lekin itna garyata hai engine……………. shame of the road. Honda ki bare me pata nehi. But jitni v buri ho…hai to Indian bike……………… so, we should make it rock the roads. ………………………….hamara bajaj

  9. yaar bajaj ka gadi jaldi repair me ajata he, honda is best. Unicorn is the tuffest bike.

  10. pulsar 135 220 very atractive looke pulsar is the best power

  11. Pulsar is always rokz bcz . pulsar have high pulling power but in unicorn very low pulling power

  12. mere pass unicorn aur pulsar dono hai. Unicorn mera chota bhai chalata hai. Pulsar waki mai damdar hai lekin unicorn bhi koi khilona nahi hai. Average unicon ka jayada hai, lekin pickup pulsar ka.. But maintaince bahut hai. Har servicing mai 1000 rs se upar lagjata hai.

  13. Well saying is Pulsar and Unicorn both are cool bikes Pulsar is known for stylish and high pick-up and very popular, Unicorn is also good pick-up n its a very family bike i recently bought Pulsar 150cc in black color i bought it for 78k on road before Pulsar i tried for Unicorn but its takes maximum of 3 months that why choosen Pulsar as far now itz Rocking both the bikes are Superb comparing Pulsar is a little bit hunk then a Unicorn bike. Unicorn 2009 bike was awesome it was so much happening bike but 2012 model is little bit less modified anyways both the bikes Rocks

    DRIVE SAFE

  14. Pulasr alwaz rocks in all….my new bike pulsar 2012 is giving 72kmpl(when we ride at <=45km/hr) this is unbelievable to me at starting but soon after many test,it was conformed on giving 72kmpl….but if went beyond 50km/hr it gives 65kmpl…but other bikes cant give tht performance & mileage..

  15. A bike which will never lose its behavior is Unicorn

  16. east or west pulsar is the best

  17. hey guys listen i own a Honda unicorn comparing to pulser ma bike peacefully beats pulser and once pulses gets old it looses its power.. and to be presided Honda bikes don’t looses its power or its mileage after 5 or 10yrs also mine is a 2008 model guy he still runs like a ever young.. once somebody owns it would int like to change it.. and the best part is he silent and beats every one.. i get a descent mileage of 53 kmpl to 54 kmpl in city and 58 kmpl to 59 kmpl in high way.. were as pulser looses his hopes and power once he is old.. my guy is peaceful and a kick ass… i love him a lot.. ppl b4 u plan to buy a pulser test ride unicorn.. u wud love the silent guy.. and to say another thing is pulser exhort wud get holes after few years where as unicorn’s is ever lasting…

    so i love unicorn and he is a silent winner.. in all ways…!!! no one is Der to beat him.. if somebody is born to wud learn how to beat him..

  18. Now a days unicorn engines not good

    But pulsar have improved a lot and pulsar comes with all digital speedometer and all but unicorn lacks all about this do pulsar rocks all things so pulsar is the best in 150cc bike segment and also in sport bike so I recommend pulsar

  19. Unicorn bikes are worthless when u get maximum pros with pulsar on same price tag~
    Pulsar rocks always just test drive both bikes u wil come to know that unicorn only has high spring cycle!

  20. unicorn is best and those who said that purser is good that is only because they have made a mistake after purchased pulser bikes and now they want to stand with there mistakes…best of luck for all pulser owners….and enjoy all unicorn owners…

  21. Pulsar's riding posture is good, thanks to the stylish handle bars, aggressive looking wind shield, digital cluster and lower seating position. Sound of humming gear gives the feel of a racing bike. After 20,000 km, you will get to know the actual quality of the bike. Sprocket and chain needs a change after 20 to 30000 km and lot of lateral vibration which makes you think is it the same pulsar which performed like racing breed 3 years back ? Service people are also not having patience to hear complaints and not so customer friendly, since they have more than expected number of vehicles in their service queue.

    On the other hand, the silent monster Unicorn reflects quality in every component of it. After igniting the bike, you will hear the engine noise only if you accelerate the bike. Many times bike makes you feel that it is switched off, even if it is cruising with decent speed with great stability road presence. Gear shifting and clutch are so smooth and require very little effort in changing gears. Perfect balance of speed and torque. Performance and speed is good though the initial pick up could have been better. To mention a few minor draw backs, digital cluster is missing, poor head lights, missing LED tail lamps.

    Looks like Suzuki GS 150 has come up with same refined engine with an additional gear and provision of all missing features of Unicorn. A stable mate indeed.
