Now I’m not exactly a vehicle freak anymore, but one thing that’s really caught my imagination lately is the new Bajaj Pulsar. I think it’s the closest ever India’s come to a superbike and it’s really shocking that a bike with such power is coming from Bajaj’s stable which has been famous for only scooters in the past. The original Pulsar, which came around 6 years back I guess has totally stolen the market from the likes of Hero Honda and the other companies. It was very impressive at that time with it’s 150 and 180 cc models. Then in 2006, when Pulsar was already ruling the market, and with CBZ Xtreme and Karizma failing to do any damage, Bajaj announced a new revamped Pulsar. This one had a more suave look, LCD speedometer and double split taillights and the best part was, the price remained the same. With the coming of 2007, this new range of Pulsars has been rocking the roads and on an early deserted morning, you can easily find someone on a Pulsar doing a 200 kmph or wheelies etc. The hottest selling model at this time is the 200 cc Pulsar. It has the LED display, split backlights, new styled headlamps, a more aerodynamic body,transparent indicators and the best part, a huge and wide rear wheel which provides excellent grip and speed.
Now with all that being there already, Bajaj has also launched the 220 cc Pulsar which is even more mean looking and fast going with the new headlamp and enormous amount of power. The Pulsar has been declared the “Bike of the Year – 2007″ by Autocar, the pioneer automobile magazine. This is just the beginning, and I think it wouldn’t be long before Hayabusa’s start making there way down here because the new Indian biker has money, and he loves speed. Gonna leave you with pictures of the 200 cc and the 220 cc Pulsar.
