Launch event for Bajaj Pulsar 250 and Pulsar 250F gets underway…
Rajiv Bajaj, MD at Bajaj Auto, highlights how the company has learnt more from the mistakes than the strengths of Pulsar over the years. “In 1997, the Indian market was moving from scooters to motorcycles, and we had to do something here. In financial year 1999, Bajaj Auto’s two-wheeler portfolio lost money for first and last time,” he says. “Through Pulsar and over the years, we have learnt everything we know. Or at least I know. How to build brands, how to not build brands and how to build global presence – all on the back of Pulsar.”
Rajiv Bajaj admits company may have been three years late with the new Pulsar. “When a product succeeds, manufacturers tend to not make big changes,” he says. “How do you go out and say to someone ‘this is still the same but completely different’?”
Candid as ever, Rajiv Bajaj also asks how one can offer more in a product while offering it at same price point. “I am pleased to say after almost five years of effort, we have nailed it.”
Rajiv Bajaj says Pulsar isn’t the favourite product from his company. “It is the only product. Every other product has come off it.”
What inspires Pulsar, especially its design? Bajaj Auto says that it is technology which is at the core of the bike, and an emphasis on speed as an emotion.
Bajaj Auto underlines the popularity of Pulsar bike and brand in both urban as well as rural India.
The new Pulsar 250 is set to be the flagship model in the Pulsar family of bikes. It will be the most powerful Pulsar to be ever launched by Bajaj Auto in India, or elsewhere in the world.
The new Pulsar 250 will feature telescopic front forks backed up with a single monoshock unit at the rear. This will be a huge update when compared to the pre-existing Pulsar 220F model which gets twin shock units at the rear.
2021 Pulsar variants – There will be two variants of the new Pulsar 250 in the form of Pulsar 250 (naked standard) and the Pulsar 250F which will be a semi-faired version of the motorcycle.
Pulsar 250 will sit lower than the existing Dominar 250 motorcycle, and will appeal to a different set of customers. The new Pulsar 250 will share the segment with other quarter-litre naked street bikes such as the Suzuki Gixxer 250, Yamaha FZ25, and also the KTM 200 Duke.
Pulsar 250 will be given a new 250 cc single cylinder engine which will be an air cooled unit, as teased previously. The output from this engine is expected to be around 26PS and 22NM. This powertrain will come paired to a 6-speed gearbox.

Use of the sleek and sharp-looking DRLs at the front headlamp will contribute to a much aggressive look on the new Pulsar. Moreover, the bike will also receive a small tinted front visor, which appears to have taken inspiration from the Pulsar 220F, isn’t it?
