Bajaj Auto has announced the arrival of the 2023 Pulsar 220F in the Indian market. This sub-250cc Pulsar motorcycle has received the necessary modifications to become OBD2 compliant. This semi-faired bike was phased out in April last year. However, due to popular demand, it is now back on the market with significant tweaks, but the design, mechanical specifications, and hardware are all the same. Bajaj Auto also recently introduced the 2023 Chetak Electric scooter in India, with a starting price of Rs 1.52 lakh (ex-showroom). The new electric scooter incorporates several enhancements in terms of features and design. In addition, the current model of the electric scooter, which is now available for Rs 1.22 lakh (ex-showroom), will be sold alongside the new model. It should be noted that changes such as a wider selection account for a Rs 30,000 price difference. Only the most expensive Premium variant has received the updates. Now, coming back to the all-new Pulsar 220F, here's what we know about it.

It still has features like a projector-style halogen headlight, backlit switchgear, traditional blinkers, an LED taillight, and a single-channel ABS, among others.
