Bajaj Pulsar 220 DTSi Performance and Specs


bajaj_pulsar_220_dtsi_performance

Zigwheels tested the Bajaj Pulsar 220 DTSi and are raving about its performance. They say the Pulsar 220 DTSi is the fastest bike in India. It can reach 100kmph from standstill in just 11.30 seconds and can reach a true top speed of 138.5kmph. Which is way faster than any other bike in the country including the Yamaha R15. Bajaj hasn’t discontinued the Pulsar 220 DTSFi and the Pulsar 220 DTSi replaces the Pulsar 200.

    Bajaj should really consider making changes to the physical appearance of the bike. The body-flow is wierd and looks like a chameleon!! :P

    42 kmpl is a big lie for a 220cc bike..
    its just a promotional gimmick..

      No, my friend, I beg to disagree. I have extracted 48.2 Kmpl from this bike once, and get 44.54 kmpl of overall fuel economy with normal unleaded petrol with no fancy additives or engine oils or anything. Bike runs stock. No modifications. You just have to know how to extract the maximum out of your motorcycle. If you want speed, you know what to do. But for economy you must have control of your throttle and your wish to ride economical, to feel that sweet spot where your engine runs most comfortably. try it yourself. No better teacher than your own feelings, brother

    Deepak, the bike will give you around 40kmpl as Srivaatsav said. Performance may be better then Yamaha but Yamaha’s engines are more refined, quality and reliability is better. In city you can expect 38kmpl from the Pulsar 220 and on the highways around 42kmpl.

    the bike looks a bit better from its previous model… holding the black accessories including alloy wheels which makes it a better looking sporty bike..in this version the much bigger carbueretter replaces the fi technique…which provides a better pick up and more power…which is enhences the performance of the bike, since it is a performance bike.. and guys if you’re goin in for an 200+ cc bike you should not be really care for its mileage then… now surely the zma and yamahar15 is goin to feel the heat… as you can now get ur hands arnd a bike of 220cc range starting from 70,000 onwards… the price is goin to be the usp of the bajaj auto..even its performance is far better than the both .. another reason of the reduced price of the particular bike is that..the bajaj is concered abt the yamaha fazer’s launch which is expected arnd 70,000 bucks as well..so bajaj has to go neck to neck with the yamaha fazer..as it is goin to be a new product for consumers…a bit sad though.. that the bajaj discontinued the mah favr8 member of the pulsar family—the pulsar 200cc… :(

  • fas July 2, 2009, 3:17 pm

    Deepak, on the highway under sane riding and shifting gears at 3k rpm, the bike will give you 42.

    Hey fas..

    My new 220 DTSi has got a mileage of 48km/lit in city n the same in highways..

    I got my engne tuned everytime i went to the service station, 2000kms done, 1 service done n i went about 5 times to get the carb in perfect shape (no rich mixtures).

    But, i feel that the pickup has reduced a bit.. I WANT YOUR COMMENTS ON THIS

    Secondly, 2000kms are done, can i switch to synthetic oil? bajaj recommends 20W50, i feel like using 50W50 as it is more viscous n hence thicker oil film between contact parts. (I am never going to a place with winter temperatures below 10C) What should I do.

    Please advice..

    And i have many more doubts, if you’d welcome them..

    Thanx

      Sinister, that mileage is pretty good and the reason the mileage has gone down because your bike is tuned towards efficiency and not performance. You can go for synthetic oil, remember to flush the engine before you go ahead. You doubts are always welcome so fire away.

      And ya please use one fuel, don’t switch between premium and normal fuel, decide on one and stick with it.

  • Sinister September 28, 2009, 12:02 am

    To add more info,

    Petrol Used: HP Power sometimes n SHELL Premium. (Everytime, Petrol with Additives has been used)

    SHOULD I BE VERY PROUD THAT MY BIKE RETURNS SUCH A MILEAGE? I am a mechanical engineer so i do ride n keep my bike in full shape..

    Highway Speed: 65-75 Km/hr.

    N ya, dont forget, i have many more doubts..

    Thanx

      Max, ride at 60kmph for best FE.

      • lali April 9, 2012, 9:33 pm

        it is hard to maintain a speed of 60.
        only for FE we have to do that , P220 is the best bike in country , dont know about CBR250 but it is a lot more costlier than P220 so P220 is VFM in it s segment

      Max, yes. Capacitor discharge ignition is used together with the ignition coil to create the spark used to ignite the air/fuel mixture in a cylinder. Now your bike should be fine.
