Encore to celebrate decade of affordable performance bikes
Bajaj Auto will be celebrating a decade of affordable performance biking in India this December and may unveil a revised Pulsar. It may be recalled that the bike was originally launched in 2001. The popular Pulsar range is now returning for an encore.
Bajaj Auto’s eagerly awaited next-generation Pulsar will break cover at a glittering media event next month, giving enthusiasts all over the country a reason to rejoice. The centre-stage will be occupied by the new Pulsar 200, which will share a significant amount of technology, especially its gearbox and transmission, with the KTM Duke 200. While the KTM Duke 200 will employ a DOHC, four-valve, single-spark, liquid-cooled motor, the Pulsar will be powered by an SOHC, four-valve, twin-spark engine which will also be liquid-cooled now.
We have no idea how radical a direction the new Pulsar’s styling will take, but it is not difficult to envision a completely re-designed bike to go with the new powerplant. We wait with bated breath!
