The Bajaj Pulsar 220F, which was discontinued last year, is making a comeback. The bike is already in production, and deliveries are set to begin in the coming weeks. According to a recent leak, the launch price would be around Rs 1.40 lakhs. Bajaj should have no trouble relaunching the Pulsar 220F because it was already BS6 compliant when it was discontinued. It will only need to meet OBD-2 standards, which will go into effect on April 1, 2023.
Photos of the plant's first batch of new Pulsar 220Fs have gone viral. They reveal that the bike is the same as it was when it was discontinued. The Pulsar 220F is a semi-faired motorcycle with a prominent headlight cowl, shoulder fairing, and engine cowl. A large windscreen, LED projector headlamp, and halogen turn indicators. A clip-on handlebar, carbon-fibre design elements, split seats, and an upswept exhaust are key features.
The Pulsar 220F was phased out following the introduction of the Pulsar 250 twins. This was done despite the fact that 220F was in high demand in certain parts of the country. Bajaj appears to have been looking for the best possible environment to promote the 250 twins. Because dealerships continue to receive requests for the 220F, the decision was made to relaunch the bike.
The Pulsar 220F's popularity can be attributed to its high-performance engine. The Pulsar 220F had a 220cc engine that produced 20.9 hp of max power and 18.5 Nm of peak torque when it was discontinued. The power output is greater than that of the 350cc Royal Enfield Classic, which produces around 20 hp. Even with OBD-2 compliance, the power and torque output of the Pulsar 220F is unlikely to change.
The majority of the equipment list is expected to be the same as before. Telescopic front forks and dual rear shock absorbers are standard on the Pulsar 220F. In comparison, 250 twins have mono-shock rear suspension. The Pulsar 220F has disc brakes on both ends, as well as single-channel ABS.
