Bajaj Pulsar has remained as one of the most popular bikes in the Indian market. The Pulsar is also available in many international markets and is quite popular too. Here is a customised Bajaj Pulsar from Indonesia that has been modified to be a supermoto off-roader and it looks pretty amazing.
What are the changes?
The base motorcycle used in this modification job is a faired Bajaj Pulsar 220. The engine remains untouched but the frame has been altered to give it a different profile. The bike also gets a lot of customised parts like the new tank, fabricated body parts, seat and the handlebar.
The modified version of the bike bears no resemblance to the original bike because a lot of parts have been taken from different bikes. The bash plate, for example, has been customised and the design is inspired by the Honda CRF250R’s bash plate. The front and rear suspension come from the Kawasaki KLX 150, which is a dirt bike and gets a robust suspension system. The modder has also used the same rims from the KLX150 but the tyres are road-going, which is how the SuperMoto bikes are supposed to be. The spoke wheels added to the bike give it more flexibility as spoke wheels can stretch more and are much more long-lasting than the alloy wheels when it comes to off-roading. The tyres add more grip and give confidence to the rider.
There are many other aftermarket parts that add both aesthetic and functional features to the Bajaj Pulsar 220. A one-into-two dual-exhaust has been put with the muffler placed under the seat. This ensures that water does not flow back into the exhaust during off-roading sessions. Also, there is a chain tensioner that makes sure that the chain tension is at optimum.
The bike also gets bigger disc brakes at the front and rear. The new drilled petal disc brakes run cooler and provide better braking performance than the solid discs. The engine remains untouched but we are not sure if any performance accessories have been added to the engine.
