Bajaj is working on the all-new generation of the Pulsar that will be launched next year. In the reshuffling of the models, Bajaj is expected to add the all-new Bajaj Pulsar 250 to the line-up of the performance bikes. The Pulsar 250 is likely to be showcased at the 2020 Auto Expo before the launch.
The all-new Bajaj Pulsar 250 is expected to retain the design DNA of the Bajaj Pulsar 200 NS but it will be updated thoroughly. A rendering image by IAB shows how the all-new Pulsar may look like. The rendered image gets a Dominar inspired windscreen with a body coloured mask for the headlamp.
It will also get a full-LED headlamp, which is already available on the Dominar 400. The tank design of the Pulsar 250 is expected to remain muscular with deep creases on it. A bikini fairing can be added to ensure that the bike looks sportier. The all-new Pulsar has not been spotted yet and this rendering image is purely made out of speculation.
the tail section of the Bajaj Pulsar 250 is expected to remain sleek, just like the current version of the bike. It gets split seat set-up. The bike will get also continue to offer telescopic front forks and a mono shock suspension in the rear. The clip-on handlebars will provide a semi-aggressive seating posture. The tail lamp unit is also expected to get an all-LED set-up. The all-new Pulsar may get an all-digital console that may get Bluetooth connectivity. It will be the biggest-ever Pulsar yet and Bajaj will add on a few features to make it distinctive in the line-up.
The engine of the Bajaj Pulsar 250 will be derived from the KTM 250 Duke. However, Bajaj will tweak it for more fuel efficiency and less power. The engine-sharing is already done in the KTM 390 Duke – Bajaj Dominar 400 and the Bajaj Pulsar 200 NS and the KTM 200 Duke. The features like triple-sparkplug technology will be seen in the engine. The maximum power of the upcoming Bajaj Pulsar is not known but it will be lower than the KTM 250 Duke’s 30 PS and 24 Nm output.
The all-new bike will be launched to meet the new upcoming BS VI regulations in the Indian market that will be implemented from 2020 March. The new features in the bike with mandatory ABS will make the price hovering at around 1.5 lakhs Bajaj has always been price-sensitive and has remained a very value-for-money brand in India. The all-new Bajaj Pulsar 250 is expected to be priced at around Rs. 1.7 lakhs will compete with the likes of KTM 250 Duke in the Indian market.
The Bajaj Pulsar has been around in the market for a long time now. Bajaj is expected to overhaul the complete line-up and launch the all-new Pulsar model to the market soon. New features are expected to be added, and fuel injection is likely to become standard. The new Pulsar line-up will also meet the tighter Bharat Stage 6 emission norms, which will come into effect from April 2020.
