After quite a long time of surveying, collecting money and taking some guts; I finally took Bajaj Pulsar 180 as my first motorcycle of sport type.
At first, I didn’t realize that it was the new model called UG4 Pulsar 180. I was admiring its beauty; the look that in instant resembling Bajaj P200.
The only thing that I like more in P200 rather than P180, is its dimension which is longer in wheelbase (1350 mm compare to 1250 mm). Or maybe the little yet pretty tank flap in P200, that makes it look much longer than P180. And now at new UG4 P180, Bajaj has made it a bit longer that is 1345 mm. Is it really that important? For me, yeah. Just like a pretty woman, the tank flap and longer wheel base make P180 much sexier 🙂
The P180 UG4, also comes with a new model of clip on handle-bar (stang jepit), two piece of grab rails and split seat that once again resembling the P200’s look.
The other controversial factor, is that you won’t find kick-starter in UG4. I still can’t imagine what would happen if -God forbid- the electric went in trouble and I couldn’t turn-On the engine. So, you know what? Commenting the missing of kick-starter; some guys in the mailing-list of Indonesian pulsar-rider suggest me to go to the gym, get my body shaped-up so I can be strong enough to push the motor to the nearest repair-shop 🙂 Yeah, 150 kg motor is quite a burden for me.
So far, I’m still waiting for some legal documents for this motor; hence I can’t take it on the road. Yet, a little testimony from me, in a single word I can say I’m satisfied. With all the features it has, the new beautiful look, and compare with its price (18 mills IDR); this motor has truly become worthed for its value-to-money factor.
For temporary, I gave it a name of Wiwit. Why? Cause everytime I look at it, I can’t stop myself from being amazed of its beautiful yet handsome look. You know, for you guys, when you saw a pretty girl sometime you whistle at her.. thus the sound like “Pheewwiitt” came out of your mouth. And for us Indonesian, in a slang terms; “pheewwiitt” has become “Wiwit” 🙂
Can’t wait to use it for my daily ride.
