Bajaj Auto MD, Mr Rajiv Bajaj has remarked that the Bajaj Pulsar series of motorcycles are due to get an upgrade in September, and we’re wondering what it could be. Considering the fact that the Bajaj Pulsar 150 and 180 have both got facelifts quite recently, the big story emerging could be that of the top of the line Bajaj Pulsar getting it’s share of goodies from Bajaj Auto.
On the back of Bajaj upping it’s production capacity to 5 million units per year, come October, the new Pulsar 220 is expected to help Bajaj retain the strong momentum with which sales have been growing all through this year. Currently the big point of speculation is what Bajaj will launch shortly to take over the reins as the flagship Pulsar. Currently, there are two strains of thought surrounding the new Pulsar, which is expected to be a major departure from the current models.
Whether it would be a 200cc engine derived from KTM, that could come with advanced engine technology like 4 valves, DOHC and liquid cooling or whether a 250cc engine would make it to the Pulsar range, remain questions that the coming days could throw light upon. Also, the styling of the flagship Pulsar could also see a major revamp to bring it up to date as the Pulsar, despite seeing various facelifts over the years has started to look slightly dated.
