The launch of the new Bajaj Pulsar 250 is just around the corner. But before the new Pulsar breaks cover, here is a list of things we’re expecting to see on the new motorcycle.
The Bajaj Pulsar 250 is one of the highly anticipated motorcycles of 2021, which will be launched on October 28. It is the first time that the Pulsar nomenclature will be associated with the quarter-litre segment. Up until now, the largest capacity Pulsar was the 220F, which displaces 220cc. The most powerful Pulsar, on the other hand, is the RS200, which puts out 24.1bhp.
Now, the upcoming Pulsar 250 is likely to have the largest capacity engine and highest power output in the range. Also, here are a few other things to expect from the new Bajaj Pulsar 250.
While the official teaser of the Pulsar 250 only showcases one semi faired motorcycle, Bajaj is likely to launch two Pulsar 250s this week – one of them will be a semi-faired motorcycle, whereas the other one is likely to have a naked design. The semi-faired Pulsar 250 will rival the likes of the Suzuki Gixxer 250 SF, while the naked Pulsar 250 will compete against Yamaha FZ-25, Suzuki Gixxer 250, Husqvarna Svartpilen 250, and the KTM 250 Duke.
Engine and Chassis
Both variants of the Bajaj Pulsar 250s most likely employ a new chassis and an all-new engine. The engine head is likely to feature a triple-spark set-up. Some online reports also hint that the new Pulsar 250’s engine will be equipped with a variable valve-timing actuation, similar to that of the Yamaha YZF-R15 V3.
And while the Pulsar 250 will have a new engine and a new chassis setup, it will share its suspension components with the RS200 and NS200. That being said, the Pulsar 250 will feature a conventional telescopic fork at the front, unlike the aluminium finished upside-down forks, which have we seen on the Bajaj Dominar 250. The brakes could be from Bybre and will most likely be the same size as that of the RS200 and NS200.
All-LED headlamp, all-digital instrument cluster, side-stand engine cut off, and slipper-clutch are just a few things that we’re expecting the upcoming Pulsar 250 to feature. So far, the Pulsar is known to feature a semi-digital instrument cluster, but the new Pulsar 250 range is likely to change that.
The Bajaj Pulsar RS200 is priced at Rs 1.63 lakh (ex-showroom), whereas the Dominar 250 at Rs 1.59 lakh (ex-showroom) costs slightly less. The new Bajaj Pulsar 250 is likely to be a more affordable proposition compared to the aforementioned Bajaj products. The prices of the Pulsar 250 are likely to be between Rs 1.45 lakh and Rs 1.55 lakh (ex-showroom).
