Well, when its competitors come up with every other vibrant colour out there, why should Bajaj sit and watch? They’re giving Pulsar a flamboyant metallic orange shade that will exclusively be available on the Pulsar 180, 220 and 220F variants.
When the fuel tank, doom and the rear panels come in metallic orange colour, the front mud guard and side panels remain black. However, there won’t be any mechanical changes to any of these models.
Prices will remain unchanged, too – 180cc at Rs 74,300, the naked 220 DTS-i at Rs 80,900 and the top end Pulsar 220F at Rs 84,300 (prices, on-road Mumbai).
Pulsar, which is largely responsible for changing Bajaj’s ‘scooter maker’ image, is by far the leading sports machine in India with a consistent 50 per cent market share.
