    Who wouldn't be interested? If not the KTM, it's pulsar twin will surely be priced well, and if the reviews of Pulsar 200NS are anything to go by, Im sure this one, when it's out will be a revelation.

    Cheers,
    I spoke to Rajiv Bajaj as well as "the Father of Pulsar" during the 200 NS launch about the P350 & KTM 350 in which phase of 2013 they plan to launch the bikes.The way i got the answeres, it looks like they are going to go the KTM 200 and P200 NS way.

    both the bikes will be spied from next year Sept-Oct when being tested near Aamby Valley.
    Spread an official news (Oct Nov )of one of the bikes launching in Jan 2014 and the other one in Feb 2014.. and Bikes will be on road from March-April, 2014

    That is an awesome news. So now we will have the first Indian bike with +300cc engine and twin cylinder.
    Just thinking will it be FI or a carb version, and if carb the how many plugs, to achieve a decent mileage from this monster. (30KMPL+). Just a thought.

    Back in 2008 when Yamaha showed its R15 and FZ.. the sentiment at xBhp for Bajaj and Pulsars was at an all time low. Back then many were "Fed Up" with the Pulsar tank and also the Pulsar name (good thing BAL didn't pay heed and did not scrape the Pulsar brand)..!!

    Looks like the goodwill for Bajaj/Pulsar has returned in 2012.

    Welcome back satya sir... Bade dino k baad...

    yeah, and not only the tank but overall design change is revolutionary in pulsar family... but still many are not so happy (you can check the reviews as well) as it has lost it's characteristic musculer look, which was one the prime reason to give pulsar a 'definitly male' tagline and increase it's popularity...

    The current P180, original P200 and the short lived P220S (bikini faied variant) is one of the most beautiful and proportionate motorcycle design in the world.. and it includes the signature Pulsar tank (which I still love) as well..!!

    I hope this shape is continued as it is a classic and evergreen design.
