  • Bajaj Pulsar 250 launched in N250 and F250 flavours!

The former is a naked streetfighter priced at INR 1,38,00 (Ex-Showroom, Delhi) and the latter is a semi-faired street racer priced at INR 1,40, 000 (Ex-Showroom, Delhi). The new Pulsar 250s aim to combine a sporty character with everyday rideability, just like its predecessors.

    Commenting on the launch, Mr Rakesh Sharma - Executive Director, Bajaj Auto said, “Precisely two decades ago on 28th Oct 2001, Bajaj Auto had launched the first Pulsar and changed motorcycling in India forever. Since then, there has been a succession of Pulsars which have set new benchmarks in India and globally making Pulsar one of the most loved motorcycling brands across 50 countries. Today, Pulsar yet again ups the benchmark with the launch of two new Pulsar 250s. We are confident that these two superbly crafted machines will exhilarate the Pulsarmaniacs and attract more riders to the Pulsar brand and to the quarter-litre class of biking”.



    The quarter-litre motorcycles have a visually arresting stance with a captivating first look. This has been achieved through the design principle of sculptural purity, which is evident in the integration of the front fascia with the muscular tank. At its heart is a powerful, single-cylinder engine that delivers consistent power throughout the rev band. The Pulsar 250 comes in 2 exciting colour options – Techno Grey & Racing Red.

    The Pulsar 250 design language boasts of a sharp unibody gesture with tighter proportions and modern aerodynamic design. The muscular dynamic tank is contrasted with a sleek stylish waist section that extends to a contoured step seat, making for an eye-catching profile. It is further equipped with a sportier, throatier, and stylish exhaust in a satin grey finish. The floating body panels such as the belly pan, front fairing, and front fender along with the wider tyres complete the imposing profile of the new Pulsar.

    The all-new sports-tech theme brings out the ‘sculptural purity’ of the bike through a dynamic interplay of newly developed premium metallic dual colours that evoke a ‘singular first look’ at the front cowl of the bike. The eye sweeps through the aggressive, but uncluttered front fascia to the muscular tank and the integrated cowl in one look – taking in the fluid sculpture. Through a progressive lightening of tone from front to back, the new Pulsar 250 looks fresh at every glance. The tone-on-tone treatment further enhances the contours at play.

    Satin black finishes to the side covers and tank-side inners contrasts the metallic gloss on the tank and seat cowl. The engine covers are finished in deep copper – for an arresting view – flanked by the ‘Siberian Silver’ pivot plate and the floating belly pan.

    From being the most powerful 150-cc, beating its own benchmarks with DTS-i, to the naked, adrenaline-inducing power of the NS200, the Pulsar has always been the fastest wolf in the pack. Now, in its biggest-ever avatar, the Pulsar 250 brings the free-revving, unfettered power to the quarter-litre segment. The 250 cc BS6 DTS-i oil-cooled engine delivers 24.5 PS of smooth, available-through-the-band power with a peak torque of 21.5 Nm that leads to a superior pickup. Moreover, a meaty mid-range and nimble-footed handling further enhance its everyday riding performance.

    Features
    • LED Projector Unipod Headlamp unit with flanking reverse-boomerang LED DRLs – for enhanced white light viewing experience, along with a uniform and accurate beam pattern for improved safety
    • Monoshock Suspension - new monoshock unit to offer pinpoint handling without compromising on comfort
    • Assist & Slipper Clutch - allows for aggressive downshifting with confidence, along with an effortless clutch pull
    • Infinity Display Console - retaining the ‘Badge of Thrill’ – the Tachometer needle - as a nod to the golden age of performance motorcycling
    • USB Mobile Charging – at a convenient position near the tank flap, for Pulsarmaniacs who are always on the go
    • Gear Position Indicator – for confidence and accuracy in achieving the perfect gear shift
    • Distance to Empty Readout – integrated into the infinity console for better fuel planning
    • Assured Braking - 300 mm front and 230 mm rear bigger-disc brakes with ABS technology
    • Stronger Grip - Larger tyre dimensions of 100/80 – 17 F & 130/70 – 17 R for improved grip on any terrain

    So finally they upgrade the grandpa Pulsar 220 which was practically unchanged for all intents and purposes since 2007.

    From the side view, it definitely looks like an iteration on the Pulsar 220F. Fresh looks but just an iterative update since they have skipped the opportunity to include dual channel ABS. That is something the competition offers in FZ-25 and Gixxer 250.

    ​​​​​​But progress it definitely is. Let's hope this helps rake in the big numbers that the Pulsar range is expected to.
    Advice is a form of nostalgia.
    Dispensing it is a way of fishing the past from the disposal, wiping it off, painting over the ugly parts and recycling it for more than it's worth.
