Bajaj Auto is readying some new motorcycles to cash in the high demand in the Indian automobile market this festive season. Part of its new lineup will be the new Pulsar 250. The company has also been papped testing the new Pulsar 250 motorcycle which will be the biggest Pulsar model in the lineup.
The spy images suggest that the new upcoming Pulsar will sport a semi-faired design with a mid-size front fairing, projector headlamp, telescopic front forks, alloy wheels and monoshock rear suspension.
