    Bajaj Pulsar RS 250cc Render In 3 Colour Options – White, Red, Black

    Bajaj Pulsar RS 250 Render
    Bajaj is reportedly planning to expand its range of Pulsar motorcycles with new 250cc models
    A few days ago, a test mule of the upcoming Bajaj Pulsar 250F was caught in cameras on roads. The semi-faired sports commuter was heavily wrapped in camouflage yet we were able to comprehend a few details. Reports suggest that Bajaj is also preparing to develop both fully-faired and naked versions of a quarter-litre Pulsar.
    Both models are expected to wear the RS and NS brandings respectively. Digital renders of the former have been created by SRK Designs in multiple colour options – showing the overall expected design of the faired quarter-litre superbike. The motorcycle bears an uncanny resemblance with Pulsar RS 200 although with subtle variations to distinguish both bikes.
    Pulsar RS250 Rendered Design
    For starters, the rendered Bajaj Pulsar RS 250cc gets a revised front end with dual-beam LED projector headlamps. The faired bodywork also sports some minor revisions with more layers to the panels.
    Like Pulsar RS 200, the upcoming RS 250 could also adopt a dark theme with an appropriate amount of black shade used on side body panels, fuel tank shrouds and underbelly engine cowl. The engine casing gets a golden colour wrap along with a stubby dual-tone underbelly exhaust.

    Other styling highlights are reminiscent of its smaller sibling including slightly forward-set footpegs, a tall windscreen, clip-on handlebar, upright tail section, split seat setup and rear tyre hugger. A small air scoop in the front fairing should further amplify aerodynamic qualities. The motorcycle is likely to share its engine and underpinnings with its naked sibling NS 250.
    Expected Hardware
    Like RS 200, the upcoming fully-faired quarter-litre Pulsar is likely to be underpinned by a perimeter frame albeit with some modifications. This frame will be suspended on upside down forks at front and an adjustable mono-shock at rear.
    In comparison, the Pulsar RS 200 gets conventional telescopic forks up front. Braking hardware will comprise single disc brakes at both front and rear assisted by a dual-channel ABS as standard.

    Expected Engine Specs
    While the recently spotted Pulsar 250F is likely to be powered by a new 250cc single pot oil-cooled unit, RS 250 and NS 250 are expected to be powered by a 248.9cc single-cylinder air-cooled unit. This motor already performs duties on Bajaj Dominar 250, KTM 250 series and Husqvarna 250 twins- Svartpilen and Vitpilen. This engine is capable of pumping out 30 bhp and 24 Nm of peak torque. This unit will be paired with a 6-speed gearbox with a slipper and assist clutch.
    The upcoming RS and NS duo of the quarter-litre Pulsar is likely to be sandwiched between Pulsar 250F and Dominar 250 in Bajaj Auto’s lineup. Pulsar RS 250 will compete against Suzuki Gixxer SF250.

    Bajaj Pulsar 250F Spied Testing – Likely To Be The Fastest Pulsar Yet

    2022 Bajaj Pulsar 220FWhen Bajaj launched Pulsar 220F, it was branded as The Fastest Indian – Upcoming 250F will sit above the 220F
    Bajaj Auto is planning to expand its Pulsar range of sporty commuted motorcycles by adding new models in the coming future. A few weeks ago, a test mule of what was speculated to be a naked version of new Pulsar 250 was spotted testing.
    In addition to this, the Chakan-based bikemaker introduced the entry-level Pulsar NS125 into the lineup last month. The company also gave a mild refresh to Pulsar 150, 180 and 220F models with new colour options. Now, a semi-faired version of the upcoming quarter-litre Pulsar has been spotted conducting trial tests on roads.
    This upcoming quarter-litre sports commuter is expected to carry either F or RS nomenclature which are usually associated with faired motorcycles. In most likelihood, it will be named 250F just like the current flagship in the lineup 220F. Although the test prototype spotted was heavily wrapped in camouflage, it did reveal a few obvious details about its styling.
    Expected Design & Features
    For instance, like Pulsar 220F, the upcoming 250F is likely to receive a front-heavy fairing adjoining the fuel tank and headlamp section. It gets a tall handlebar which provides easy maneuverability and an aggressive stance thanks to a muscular fuel tank with extended shrouds and bikini fairing.
    2022 Bajaj Pulsar 220F
    Other notable highlights include upswept side exhaust, an upright tail section and a split seat setup. The rear end of the prototype, especially the split grab rails and curved taillight are reminiscent of its immediate rival brand TVS Apache.
    In terms of features, it is expected to offer an all-LED lighting setup and all-digital instrument console with colour display. If Bajaj is generous then it may also offer Bluetooth connectivity. Although images of the bike’s front end are not available at the moment, it is expected to boast a tall windscreen to counter a strong windblast.
    Expected Specs
    Coming to its specifications, Bajaj is expected to offer a whole new 250cc oil-cooled motor for its quarter-litre Pulsar motorcycles. The company already has a 248.8cc, fuel-injected, single-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine at its disposal which it utilises for its own Dominar and other KTM and Husqvarna models. The new 250cc motor on Pulsar 250 will be capable of generating around 24 bhp and will be paired with a six-speed gearbox.
    2022 Bajaj Pulsar 220F
    Other mechanical components should include conventional telescopic forks at front and a mono-shock at rear. Braking duties will be handled by single disc brakes on both ends which will be assisted by dual-channel ABS as standard. It is also expected to be offered with multiple ride modes. Upon its launch, Pulsar 250F will lock its horns with Suzuki Gixxer SF250.

    Launched recently, Bajaj Pulsar NS125 is available at a starting price of Rs 93,690 (ex-showroom, Delhi). Pulsar NS range includes NS160 and NS200, which are known for their sporty profile and race-ready performance. Addition of NS125 will benefit customers who may be looking for the NS experience at an affordable price point.
    Pulsar NS125 ride review and top speed
    To let users understand its on-road performance, YouTuber Biker Prakash Choudhary has shared the bike’s test ride experience. Below is the video that details all the features of NS125 and how it works in real world conditions.
    2021 Bajaj Pulsar NS125 Top Speed
    As is evident in the video, NS125 has fast acceleration. According to the rider, the top speed of the bike could be 110+ kmph. However, during testing he managed to do 107 kmph.
    One of the key things noted during the test ride is that the bike does not have any unwanted vibration or sound. Some vibration is natural, but it is not something that may adversely impact the ride experience. Changing gears is pretty smooth and braking performance is also good. Take a look at the detailed review video below.

    The rider feels that Pulsar NS125 would be great for city traffic. It has agility, fast acceleration and low turning radius, all of which will be useful in traffic conditions. The bike has comfortable riding stance, making it suitable for everyday commutes. With its sporty profile and under 1 lakh pricing, NS125 will be appropriate for youngsters.
    Improvement suggestions for NS125
    The rider mentions that Bajaj has included a side-stand indicator with NS125. However, side stand engine cut-off feature is not available. Another thing that seems to be missing is gear position indicator.
    Pulsar NS125 design and specs
    The bike borrows multiple design features from its bigger siblings, NS160 and NS200. Some key features include aggressive headlamp cluster, twin pilot lamps, split grab rail, underbelly exhaust and infinity twin-strip LED tail lamps. The instrument console is the same as that of NS160. Four colour options are on offer – Burnt Red, Fiery Orange, Beach Blue and Pewter Grey.
    Powering NS125 is the same 124.4cc DTS-i engine that is currently in use with Pulsar 125. It is capable of generating 11.8 ps of max power at 8500 rpm and 10.8 Nm of max torque at 6500 rpm. It is mated to a 5-speed gearbox.
    Bajaj Pulsar NS125 has been equipped with segment-first features such as rigid perimeter frame, which ensures high stiffness. The bike has low flex that allows agile handling. Improved stability across varying ride conditions has been achieved with the use of Nitrox monoshock rear suspension. Braking system has CBS, which ensures better safety for riders. More

    Bajaj Pulsar RS200 Price Hike April 2021 – New Price Rs 1.57 L?

    Image – MRD VlogsBajaj Pulsar RS200 competes against the likes of Yamaha YZF R15 and Suzuki Gixxer 250 SF
    It is the season of price hikes as automotive brands continue to battle shortage of parts, increase in transport cost, etc. Almost all manufacturers hike prices of all or some of their products during this period. Bajaj Auto too has decided to increase prices of Pulsar RS200.
    It is to be noted that in the last round of price hikes, it was the Pulsar RS200 which did not receive any price hike. And this time, the flagship Pulsar has gotten its due price hike.
    New Price April 2021
    Although the latest price hike is not reflected on the company’s official website as of yet but dealer reports suggest that the faired sports bike is bound to receive a significant price increment of Rs 5,005. As per certain media reports, Pulsar RS200 will now be retailed at a price of Rs 1,57,184 (ex-showroom).
    That is a substantial hike considering the bike receives no updates of any sort. Pulsar RS200 was supposed to mark the beginning of the faired lineup of Pulsar motorcycles but unfortunately, it hasn’t received an overwhelming response.

    Bajaj, Ex-Sh, Delhi in Rs
    Old Price

    Pulsar RS200

    This also kept Bajaj from giving the motorcycle any significant update since its launch. Also, the price at which it has been offered makes better sense for customers to save a few bucks and settle for the Pulsar 220F.
    With the latest price revision, it is now directly pitted against Yamaha YZF R15 V3.0. While the former has more horses to offer, the latter offers better control on the road and also more features. Pulsar RS200 is one quick motorcycle, probably the quickest in its segment, and we don’t have the slightest doubt. However, its on-road performance does not justify the high price it demands.
    Mechanical Specifications
    In its BS6 avatar, Pulsar RS200 is powered by a 199.5cc single-cylinder liquid-cooled engine that pumps out 24.1 bhp at 9750rpm and a peak torque of 18.7 Nm at 8000rpm. This unit is coupled with a six-speed gearbox and can clock a top speed of 141 kmph. The suspension setup of the motorcycle consists of telescopic forks at front and a mono-shock at rear. Braking duties are handled by 300mm disc at front and 230mm disc at rear respectively that are assisted by dual-channel ABS.
    Features on offer
    As far as features are concerned, it is offered with twin-projector LED headlamps, a semi-digital instrument console, clip-on handlebars and backlit switchgear. The instrument console reads out information from the speedometer, odometer, fuel gauge and service-due indicator. It is available in a solitary trim with three colour options- Burnt Red, Metallic Pearl White and Pewter Grey.
