Continuing on the rich vein of its automotive success, Bajaj launched the Pulsar F250 and N250 bikes packed with USB charger, infinity display and a thumping 250cc engine. The bikes are given a competitive price of Rs. 1,40,000 and Rs. 1,38,000 for F250 and N250 variants respectively. Both the 250 cc variants of the new Bajaj Pulsar bikes are likely to give tough competition to Yamaha FZ25 and Suzuki Gixxer 250.
In the past few years, bike enthusiasts have gradually warmed up to 250 cc bikes. The segment was first ruled by the Yamaha FZ25 and soon came competitors like Suzuki Gixxer 250 and Dominor 250 – both the bikes intended to be an affordable alternative for Indian consumers. And now, a new entrant from Bajaj is making waves in the segment. But do the new Pulsar 250 bikes pack enough punch? We’ll find out.
Indian automotive giant Bajaj auto is the world’s third-biggest motorcycle manufacturer and the second-biggest in India. Back in late 2000s Bajaj became the first manufacturer offering 4-stroke bikes with optimal performance at an affordable rate. The automotive giant produces bikes like Discover, Platina, Dominar and Avenger. These two-wheelers come with a sporty look, a decent engine, and features bundled neatly in an affordable package.
