The upcoming Bajaj Pulsar N250 has been spotted testing again. This time around, spy photos have revealed new details of the bike, and here’s what we know about it.
Bajaj will update the Pulsar N250 on the mechanical front with USD front forks over the previous telescopic forks. We also expect the bike to feature a new E20 compliant engine. For reference, the previous version used a 249 cc single-cylinder engine that produced 24.1 HP and 21.5 Nm. It was mated to a five-speed gearbox. We also expect similar production figures from the new model.
However, the design and features will likely remain the same.But some new paint jobs should be a welcome change. In addition, such changes could also lead to an increase in the sales price. Previously, the Bajaj Pulsar N250 was priced at around Rs 1.50 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi).Once launched, the Pulsar N250 will compete with the Suzuki Gixxer 250 and the Yamaha FZ25.
Bajaj has been busy testing other things too! Updates to the Pulsar range of bikes and spy images of the N160 test model have now surfaced online. These images clearly show that updates to the Pulsar N160 include a new USD fork setup. The introduction of a USD fork should improve the N160’s handling, but we hope this doesn’t come at the expense of the absorbent ride quality that the current N160 offers. A road test will help us verify this.
Aside from this chassis update, there don’t appear to have been any other changes to the bike’s hardware.We can see the same wheels, frame, brakes, etc. which are present in the current bike.
As far as the engine is concerned, there should be updates to make it compatible with E20. For reference, the engine of the current Bajaj Pulsar N160 produces 15.68 hp at 8750 rpm and 14.65 Nm at 6750 rpm.
From the pictures of the test bike, there doesn’t seem to be any updates to the feature list, but it will be interesting to see if Bajaj adds a color TFT display from the Chetak electric scooter’s spares bin to expand the feature set. the Pulsar N160. We don’t expect any design changes, but the Pulsar N160 could be available with a selection of new colors by 2024.
The updated Bajaj Pulsar N160 is expected to go on sale soon and may be more expensive than the current version between Rs 5,000 and Rs 7,000, depending on the features. It competes against the TVS Apache RTR 160 4V, another bike that is quite well equipped and is a great bike considering the performance, ride and handling.
