Bajaj Pulsar - A Primer
Bajaj Auto is one of the top manufacturers of motorcycles in India. Be it Bajaj Pulsar, Dominar, CT, Avenger, or Platina, Bajaj Auto’s motorcycles have forever figured prominently in the list of the best motorcycles in India.
Of the various motorcycle models manufactured by Bajaj, Pulsar is perhaps the most popular. In January 2022, Bajaj Auto registered total Pulsar sales of 66,839 units. Moreover, its exports were at 31,410 units. The lion’s share of Pulsar sales was contributed by Pulsar 125 (44,181 units) and Pulsar 150 (11,239) units.
Pulsar has played a pioneering role in popularising the concept of ‘sports biking’ in India. The popularity of Bajaj Pulsar has prompted Bajaj Auto to launch ten variants of Pulsar in less than two decades.
Presently, Bajaj Pulsar engines start from 125cc and go up to 250cc. The company has also installed various innovative fixtures, such as:
- Front+rear disc brakes
- Tubeless tyres
- Projector headlamps
- DTS-i engine
- Nitrox mono-shock suspension system
- Fuel-injection system
The following section provides an overview of the top Bajaj Pulsar variant within a budget of INR 1 lakh. However, before moving forward, it is wise to know that you must separately purchase third-party bike insurance policy to ride motorcycles on Indian roads. A comprehensive bike insurance plan would, however, suit you more by giving you the mandatory third-party coverage as well as your own damage coverage. Also, you must buy the two-wheeler insurance policy from an insurer registered with the Insurance Regulatory and Development Authority of India (IRDAI).
