The new black variant of Bajaj Pulsar 250 twins features dual-channel ABS as standard fitment, price increased
Just a couple of days back, Bajaj launched the all-new Pulsar N160 for a price tag of Rs. 1.23 lakhs (ex-showroom) and, now, the Chakan-based manufacturer has brought a new variant of its flagship Pulsar 250 twins in the unique Brooklyn Black shade.
Interestingly, this new variant comes with dual-channel ABS as standard fitment. The starting price is Rs. 1,49,978/- (ex-showroom, New Delhi). Bajaj calls it as the darkest, meanest, coldest, and thrilliest Pulsar 250 yet.
It’s also marketing the bike using an Eclipse. This is almost similar to the strategy the company adopted for the Dominar which first came with the tagline, ‘Dominate the night’.
The black theme comes with gloss/matte high-sparkle paints with slivers of silvers and reds. The black chrome branding, blacked out alloys, exhaust, and engine casing are designed to give the Pulsar 250 a dark look.
The metallised dual colours are are darker in the front and lighter towards the rear. The variant features slip and assist clutch, USB charger, gear position indicator, and distance to empty, again, as standard.
Other than these changes, the new variant is almost the same as the existing ones. The existing Pulsar N250 price starts at Rs. 1,43,680/- and Pulsar F250 starts at Rs. 1,44,979/- (all prices, ex-showroom, New Delhi).
So, the new variant roughly commands a premium of Rs. 5000-6000/- than the existing models.
The 250 twins were first launched on 28th October, 2021. Built on an all-new chassis, both motorcycles feature Bajaj Auto’s new design language, which still takes some inspiration from the Pulsars of old.
Powering the bikes is a 249.07cc, fuel-injected, oil-cooled, single cylinder engine that puts out 24.5 PS at 8750 RPM and 21.5 Nm at 6500 RPM. It is teamed to a 5-speed transmission.
While 37 mm telescopic front fork and rear monoshock with Nitrox take care of suspension duties, stopping power comes from 300 mm front disc and 230 mm rear disc.
Riding on 17-inch 5-spoke alloy wheels wrapped with 100/80-section front and 130/70-section rear rubber, the N250 weighs 162 kg, while the F250 weighs a bit more at 164 kg.
