Bajaj Pulsar Review

27 Mar, 2015 02:33 PM

Overview

Bajaj Autos had a totally new ideology about the Indian motorcycle market some 14 years ago and on 24 November 2001 it was seen in the form of a new lining of motorcycles called as Bajaj Pulsar. Being a scooter based brand, Bajaj had a very tough time switching over into a new segment where the already established firms were having a very good time with their little variety of offerings. Before Pulsar, the Indian market was bent toward small engine motorcycles with no performance expectations and high mileage. Pulsar, at that time changed the traditional biking philosophy and started a new era of speed and performance.

The same spirit has been carried over by the Pulsar from last 14 years and till date; performance and Pulsars are side by side thoughts in every mind. At the time of introduction, Pulsar's featured all the modern equipment of that time. The disc brake was a proud possession of a Pulsar owner and its muscular appeal was a dream of every teenager. Riding a Pulsar at that time was nothing less than talking to the winds and the same feel can be experienced today also. Bajaj Autos has been updating the technology from time to time and the results are crystal clear.

Bajaj has started the Pulsar with an idea of an ideal Indian performance bike with a balance of economy and sport functionality. Today the ever expanding market has many more challenges and the specificity of every segment has forced the Pulsar to change its form from a basic performance oriented machine to a specific segment competitor. The Pulsar is offered in various engine options staring from 135 cc, then 150 cc, the 180 cc, 200 cc and the favourite of all, the 220 cc. Every engine has the same Pulsar DNA, the pledge to perform remains same whether it’s the oldest one or the youngest one.

Bajaj Autos understands the need of classification of their Pulsars and they have done it in such a way that everyone finds a suitable one for himself, without going through each one before purchasing. The definition of each different Pulsar lies in its name.

Pulsar RS200

RS is the latest term coined by Bajaj Autos. 'Race Sport' clarifies that no compromise with the performance would be tolerated in the segment. The latest offering by Bajaj has been the mighty RS 200, having a 199.5 cc, liquid cooled engine with all the modern day safety equipment like BOSCH ABS and projector headlights. The RS 200 will rock the charts soon as it has been priced very aggressively, making it difficult for others in the segment to survive.

Pulsar 135 LS

LS, the term define the Pulsar to be 'Light Sport'. The engine variant we have in this section would be a relatively smaller engine for a Pulsar, only 135cc. But the numbers are not everything every time is clearly shown by its performance. The 13.3 BHP output from this tiny cylinder makes the 135 LS a winner by birth. The balance between economy and sport is fully justified in the LS series.

Pulsar DTS-i Series

The next thing we get from the Pulsar family is the 150 cc and 180 cc pair of Pulsars, which have been together from a decade. Both the offerings have a classic design, resembling the first Pulsar produced, keeping its spirit alive from a long time. Both have been updated with new technologies ranging from digital consoles to twin-spark technology. Pulsar 220F has been a one of its kind machine. It’s always hungry for speed and performs very efficiently whenever required. It has been one of the favourite Pulsar of all time for its semi-faired body design, differentiating it from every bike available in the market. It has a 220 cc, oil cooled engine, producing 20.8 BHP and 19.12 NM of torque. All the three Pulsars are powered by DTS-i technology.

Pulsar 200 NS

In 2012, Bajaj coined a term NS, defining those bikes which had less to wear. The 'Naked Sport' defined a category where what you show doesn't matter, what you perform was everything. This included lesser body fairing and aggressive body styling. The 200 NS was launched in 2012, making a futuristic way for more naked street bikes in the coming years. It was powered by a tuned 199.5 cc engine, producing a peak power value of 23.17 BHP. The triple spark technology was used for the first time in a Pulsar. Sharing its DNA, a new member to the family will soon launch. The 150 NS will be an affordable naked bike having a really capable tuned 150 cc engine. It is expected to produce 16.8 BHP.

Pulsar 200 AS

Bajaj has been working on a new segment from a long time ago and that has been termed 'AS'. Adventure Sport, as the name says will be a touring oriented motorcycle series balancing the power of a Pulsar with the comfort of a touring bike. Expected launch for the AS series will be the Pulsar 200 AS, sharing its engine with the cousin 200 NS. The bike is having a large windshield which makes it a true tourer by looks and style. It is expected to be priced below INR 1,00,000 attracting a lot of adventure lovers of India.

Pulsar CS400 & SS400

In the last Auto Expo, Bajaj has also shocked the audience with its out of the world, 400 cc segment twins. From two different segments, the Pulsars shared the same engine. The 400 SS, where SS stood for 'Super Sport', is a beast in the gentlemen look. It shares its design with the RS 200 but gives a 44 BHP power blow. The 400 CS, where CS is 'Cruiser Sport', is a totally different segment bike with the same output as that of its clothed twin. Both these bikes are one of the most searched one's for their performance oriented design.

Verdict

Bajaj has classified its Pulsars in every way, making it easy for us to choose what we exactly wish for. From its classic appeal to the modern day technology, Bajaj has balanced everything with its segment differentiation. Go ahead, choose yours.
