It is already known that Bajaj is working on a brand new Pulsar series motorcycle. The upcoming model is most likely to be known as Pulsar 250F and the same has been spotted testing on our roads several times. After teasing us with the test mules for a long time, Bajaj recently announced that they will be launching the brand new Pulsar motorcycle on October 28, 2021. The manufacturer has also released a new teaser video showing a glimpse of the motorcycle ahead of its official launch.
The video has been shared by Bajaj Pulsar’s official YouTube channel. The teaser takes us through the journey of Bajaj Pulsar from 2001 when the first Pulsar got launched. From there it had come a long way and the motorcycling culture in the country has also evolved over the years. Pulsar was definitely a trendsetter and holds a special place in the heart of many motorcyclists.

The upcoming Pulsar or the Bajaj Pulsar 250F is an all-new motorcycle. From what is seen in the teaser video, it looks like the new design of the Pulsar 250F is inspired from the other motorcycles in the Bajaj Portfolio. There might be some elements from other Pulsar’s but, overall the motorcycle is expected to have distinct stance.
There is a fairing at the front and 3D Pulsar branding is seen on the fairing. The headlamps is a projector LED unit with LED DRLs shaped like boomerang. The ORVMs are mounted on the fairing and the twin LED tail lamps are also a classic Pulsar thing. The seats are split and there is a grab handle for pillion similar to what we have seen in Pulsar 200NS.
The instrument cluster on the upcoming Bajaj Pulsar 250F is likely to be fully digital. We won’t be surprised if it is similar to the unit seen on Dominar 400. The design on the alloy wheels are the same as Pulsar 200 NS and the front gets telescopic suspension while the rear gets mono-shock. Both front and the rear come with disc brakes and it is likely to get a dual channel ABS as well.
Apart from all the changes to the design, the main difference on the Bajaj Pulsar 250F is going to be the engine. The 250-cc engine is a brand new unit. Unlike what we have seen in the past, this is not the same engine that is used in KTM Duke motorcycles. This new unit is likely to be an oil-cooled, single cylinder engine that is expected to generate more power than Pulsar 220. Bajaj may not be offering a liquid cooled engine to avoid complications.
The Bajaj Pulsar 250 will compete with the likes of Suzuki Gixxer 250 SF in the market. Bajaj will be announcing the price for the Pulsar 250F on 28th October. A naked version of the motorcycle was also spotted testing with the 250F and it is possible that Bajaj might launch that in the market along with the faired version. The Bajaj Pulsar 250F is expected to have a price tag around Rs 1.30 lakh, ex-showroom.
