Top 5 Things Expected From The Next-gen Bajaj Pulsar

The new Gen Bajaj Pulsar will feature a brand new engine and platform, and is expected to launch towards the end of this year Bajaj is planning to add a new bike to the Pulsar range soon – Pulsar 250. Here, we list all the things we expect from the upcoming Bajaj Pulsar 250 motorcycle, ranging from its styling to the equipment on offer.

New Design

The new bajaj pulsar seems to be designed around an all-new frame from the current Pulsar models in the market and now features a mono-shock at the rear. The new Pulsar’s proportions appear to be larger overall. Not only does that help make the bike more spacious, but also gives it a more prominent stance. A headlamp is a new unit and the tank features sharp panels that extend all the way to the forks. The minor elements like the belly pan and tyre hugger also use a different design.

New Engine

The New Gen Bajaj Pulsar will come be powered by a brand new, oil-cooled engine and not a liquid-cooled motor in order to save costs. Also the engine will be tuned in favour of fuel economy instead of outright performance, and will likely come mated to a five-speed gearbox. If the engine is a new 250 cc unit, we can expect power and torque between those of the Bajaj Pulsar 220F (20.4hp/18.5Nm) and Dominar 250 (27hp/23.5Nm).

Use a Monoshock for the first time

This is the first time that a non-LS/ NS Pulsar gets a rear mono-shock. The frame and swingarm of the new pulsar will need to be the different segments to incorporate this feature. This complete change in the underpinnings is expected to improve the dynamics of the new-gen Pulsar and has been a long time coming. The suspension at the front, meanwhile, is a conventional fork.

New Features Like Bluetooth, 2-channel ABS and Many More

The new Gen Bajaj Pulsar is expected to offer some decent set of features, like Bluetooth connectivity, a fully digital instrument cluster, along connected technology. These features are currently not available in the entire Pulsar lineup. It might also get projector headlamps and dual-channel ABS (at least as an option).

Expected Price and Launch Date

Bajaj has always been aggressive with the pricing of its bikes, and we expect the Pulsar 250 to not be an exception. We expect it to be priced at a moderate premium over the Pulsar 220F, perhaps around Rs 1.25 lakh. This will be Bajaj’s biggest launch of this year, and we expect to happen just before, or during, the festive season.
