Catch of the Day: 2012 Bajaj Pulsar caught testing
The Bajaj Pulsar, India’s largest selling sports was caught testing near the Bajaj factory in Pune and photos were taken when the bike is being tested on the public roads heading towards Nashik Phata newbajajpulsar2012.blogspot.com.
Well finally we can see what we have in store from Bajaj. The new Pulsars are expected to hit the Indian shores late 2011 and we can expect these bikes to make a debut at the 2012 Auto Expo for sure.
From the pics Bajaj is testing the Pulsar platform with different engine sizes. We can expect a 135cc, 150cc, 180cc and 220cc to make it in the bike. Well Bajaj may also consider launching the 200cc which will also do the duty on the Duke 200 expected to debut in a few days from now.
The bike continues to sport the muscular tank at the front and the biggest change is seen at the rear. The new Pulsars will get monoshock at the rear with LED tail lamps. The frame seems to very like the one used in the KTM Duke a Rectangular box swing-arm.
A Split seat give the bike a added aggressive looks and compliments the overall design.The Large front disc brakes but no disc brake at the rear. Hope the 180cc plus variants get them.
The new alloy wheel design with flatter tyres accentuates the looks. It also remind us the Yamaha FZ, though the width is less.
We hope Bajaj plays the pricing card right as always.
