Bajaj Pulsar 250 All-Black variant launched, prices start from Rs 1.5 lakh
Before we start vibing to the famous song that goes by the same name, let us tell you Bajaj Auto has added a new variant to its Pulsar 250 lineup. The All-Black variant (can’t blame us now, can you?) can be had on both the F250 and the N250 Pulsar, with prices starting from Rs 1.49 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi), and it additionally receives dual-channel ABS. Interestingly, this news comes barely days after the Indian bike maker also launched the Pulsar N160 with dual-channel ABS.
The Pulsar 250 lineup was launched late last year in grand fashion and marked the Pulsar brand’s debut in the quarter-litre segment. Apart from the new gloss-finished Brooklyn Black paint scheme, the Pulsar 250 remains identical in terms of design. It retains that familiar, muscular look associated with the Pulsar brand, but with a modern, futuristic take. The semi-faired F250 especially seems like an evolution of the then-Fastest Indian — the Pulsar 220, while the N250 is something new altogether.
This is just a cosmetic tweak, which means things remain identical under the skin. The Pulsar 250 All-Black variant continues to be powered by the same 249cc single-cylinder oil-cooled powertrain which churns out 24.6bhp at 8750rpm and 21.5Nm of torque at 6500rpm, paired to a five-speed transmission. Both the F250 and N250 make use of 37mm telescopic forks up front and a monoshock at the rear. Braking is taken care of by a 300mm disc at the front and a 230mm disc at the rear. The only noticeable change is the addition of dual-channel ABS.
Sarang Kanade, President of Motorcycle Business, Bajaj Auto, said, “ The Bajaj Pulsar 250 has enjoyed the immense response from riders across the country. W will continue to entice them with the newly launched Dual-Channel ABS variant, which comes on top of already existing features. Rider safety is of utmost importance for us at Bajaj Auto and the introduction of dual-channel ABS on Pulsar 250 combined with an all-black variant will further spruce up the demand for Pulsar 250.”
The Pulsar F250 seems to directly compete against the Suzuki Gixxer 250, while the N250 goes up against the Yamaha FZ25, and its cousins from Austria.
