Previous owner of Pulsar 220F takes delivery of India's first Bajaj Pulsar 250
After the recent launch of the Pulsar 250, Bajaj Auto has now started delivering the new motorcycle to customers in India. The company on November 15th delivered the first unit of the new Pulsar 250 from its Shourya Bajaj showroom at Chinchwad, Pune. The owner of India's first Pulsar 250 also happens to own the previous Pulsar 220F.
The new Pulsar 250 comes out as a whole new bike from the ground up as it doesn't share any of its technical or design components with the pre-existing Pulsar models.
Using a tubular frame to house a new 249 cc single-cylinder air/oil-cooled engine, the new Pulsar churns out 24.5 bhp of maximum power which is backed up with 21.5 Nm of peak torque. The engine comes mated to a 5-speed transmission.
