The Bajaj Pulsar series is among the top selling bikes of the country. Since its first introduction in 2001, the bike has brought in constant sales for the company and changed the mind set of people, who viewed 100-125 cc bikes as the best. Today, we bring you the same iconic Pulsar but with a twist. This bike has been modified by Surat based tuners called Element8 Machines. Take a look at this beautiful bike before we get any further.
As quite obvious from the pictures, the bike has been designed after a typical cafe racer and looks the part. It is the 180 cc version of the Bajaj Pulsar series.
This customised Pulsar has got almost everything done new. From the swingarm to the brakes and lights, everything speaks volumes about the work that has been done on this bike.
Starting from the front, it features an inverted suspension with billet aluminium trees taken from a KTM 200 Duke, custom clip-on handlebars and a mono pod headlamp with LED surround DRLs. The handlebars are fitted with cool inverted mirrors and brushed aluminum brake/clutch levers.
There’s also a 3D printed turn signal pilot switch and a quick action throttle. Mini-amber turn signals further take up the looks of the bike. Then the custom made tank that houses a chrome aircraft-style filler-cap and comes done in a pearl blue paint finished off in metallic lacquer.
Towards the rear we see a single side swingarm which has been custom made for this bike. It has been designed, molded, cast in a high density LM25 pour and machined to through the mounts. Those heavy wheels you see are actually a pair of Ducati Monster 796 rims shod with Michelin Sport 110/190 on the front and back respectively. The brake components are a mix of multiple bikes including Pulsar 200NS, Royal Enfield Continental GT, Yamaha R15 and the RX100.
The rear monoshock is from a Honda Unicorn which has been fitted with a custom made spring and spacer to correct the riding position. The biggest challenge according to the creators of this monster was of centering the fattened tyre while still keeping the chain aligned and cleared. Then there’s the custom SS exhaust which amplify the modest engine to new bass levels. Attention to detailing can be seen in the barcode printed on the unwrapped side of the exhaust near the engine, ehich reads the name of its owner.
What do you think about this particular transformation?
