The modified old-generation Bajaj Pulsar is all set to flatten small mountains and also look great while doing it.
The second generation Bajaj Pulsar, or the UG2 Pulsar as it is commonly known, is generally credited with giving Indians the legs and capability for long-distance cruising and relatively noticeable performance for the masses. The bike was thereby lapped-up in high numbers and gave Bajaj the confidence to give the Pulsar name a legacy of its own. Customisers and enthusiasts all over the country also came up with modifications and tasteful looks for the bike and used it to make a statement of their own. Now, another fellow enthusiast has shown his technical prowess and transformed his bike to look like a brawny Royal Enfield Himalayan.
The custom Bajaj Pulsar looks awesome and a straight-from-the-heart job. Changes to the motorcycle include a circular headlamp console similar to the shape of the Royal Enfield Himalayan, but with aftermarket LEDs for added effect. The fuel tank has been painted white and remains unchanged from the Pulsar design. The suspension system shows off some off-road capabilities with its long-travel, and the secondary mudguard adds to the Himalayan resemblance. Lastly to complete the look, a front windshield and brown seat covers have been added.
There is also the trademark Himalayan jerrycan holder which is the prominent feature of the bike as well as a chunkier set of tires. Braking includes a new disc up front and a drum setup in the rear. The Bajaj Pulsar UG2 is now modified to hold saddlebags just like the Royal Enfield Himalayan. However, the mechanicals of the bike remain unchanged – a 143.9cc mill coupled to a 5-speed gearbox, though with a cheesy blue rotor sticker of a certain high-end company. The exhaust canister is also a new chrome unit.
