The new Pulsar 250 is built on the same design lines as the existing Pulsar family of bikes and includes bits like full LED headlamps and DRLs, projector headlamps, LED indicators and split taillights, digital instrument cluster, muscular fuel tank, split seat setup and monoshock . The rear suspension adds to the attractiveness of the new motorcycle.
The motorcycle continues with the signature Pulsar styling but adds various modern elements as well. The new Bajaj Pulsar 250 comes in two different variants - Pulsar N250 and Pulsar F250. The Pulsar N250 comes as a naked standard model and is a semi faired version of the Pulsar F250 quarter-litre motorcycle.
The new Pulsar 250 comes as the flagship model in the popular and prestigious Pulsar family of bikes. This is the most powerful Pulsar ever launched by Bajaj Auto in India or anywhere else in the world. The liquid-cooled engine provided with the bike is capable of producing 24.5 PS of power and 21.5 Nm of torque. A 5-speed gearbox is provided as transmission. For better safety, it gets 300 mm disc brake, 230 mm rear disc, single-channel ABS etc. The motorcycle runs on 100mm front, 130mm rear cross-section tyres.
The new Bajaj Pulsar 250 gets telescopic front forks along with a single monoshock unit at the rear. This comes as a major update compared to the already existing Pulsar 220F model, which comes with a twin shock unit at the rear.
Apart from the new Pulsar 250, the Pune-based automaker has also introduced a new semi-faired version of the bike in the form of Pulsar 250F. It has been introduced as an extension of the popular Pulsar 220F range. There are no major changes in the exterior design as both the new Pulsar 250 twins are based on the same underpinnings.
Some of the key rivals of the new Pulsar 250 include the Yamaha FZ-25, Suzuki Gixxer and the popular KTM 200 Duke.
