    Default Bajaj to Introduce Pulsar in the European Market

    Bajaj Auto is planning to sell Pulsar 135cc model in the European markets. The company intends to market these models through the KTM dealerships across Europe. Bajaj Auto already owns substantial stake in the Austrian firm and has introduced super luxury bikes from KTM in India.

    Bajaj already sells its Pulsar 135cc model in the Indonesia markets through KTM outlets in the country. Although PT Bajaj auto Indonesia reported losses last year it is likely to break even by 2012.



    In the domestic market, Bajaj Auto is riding on the success of its model Discover and hopes to surpass Hero Honda in sales to grab the number uno position in the Indian market. From the ninth position in the first quarter of 2009-10, Discover has climbed to the third position in the first quarter of 2010-11. This is a big boost for us. Going ahead, our focus will be on the two brands Pulsar and Discover, said S Sridhar, president (motorcycles), Bajaj Auto. Furthermore, according to the recent statement from Rajiv Bajaj to BS, the company will introduce a new facelifted variant of Pulsar in India next year.

    Bajaj also states that the launch of Discover 150cc bike will escalate the success of the brand in India.

    I think there is a target market for bajaj bikes there....

    food industries can use these bikes for home delivery ... a good cycle can cost around 20K rs. there .. why not use faster mode to deliver having fuel efficiency of 100 km/l (europe = ).

    What a joke!

    I'm not aware of the 2-wheeler market situation in Europe, but the P135 is a good bike to launch from the stable.

    The pleasure is when your rear wheel slides, and you bring it back; and when the front wheel lifts, you take your time bringing it back.

    Would importing those motorcycles from Europe attract the same tax as CBU's? I'm sounding nerd, but the point is, the quality of Bajaj motorcycles in that market should be far superior isn't it?

    Give me an example of the super luxury bikes.

    Do these super luxury bikes have heated seats? seat massagers? Airbags?

    Super luxury bikes. My foot!

    there is a BIG (in upper case) market for <33bhp bikes in UK, least to say.

    Sorry but what you mean? Why would you import a bajaj from outside? but if you talking about importing to europe, its gonna be almost no tax (that's 6% on domestic MRP on new bikes in UK)

    If you take Indian online media seriously, you should immediately see a psychiatrist. No, seriously you should.

    @news - if bajaj does launch p135 in Europe, it wont be less than a lakh rupees but hopefully still be cheaper than cbr150, cbf125, r125, aprilia RS125, Hyuosung 125, Vespa 125, and Derbi GPR50. Gosh, can't imagine MCN reporter reviewing p135. they were not too kind on Koreans.
