New Bajaj Pulsar 220cc to be Launched on June 23

Bajaj Auto is expected to launch the latest variant of its top selling model Bajaj Pulsar 220cc in the final week of June 2009. Bajaj Pulsar 220cc model will replace the earlier version since it has a completely new DTS-i engine and is being billed as the fastest bike made in India.

The price of this model is expected to be around Rs. 70,000, which is around Rs. 15,000 lesser than the current 220 cc version.

The new Bajaj Pulsar 220cc is expected to come with a black theme along with a carbon fibre diffuser. Going by these trends, the bike could be put into competition with the Yamaha FZ16 and Yamaha R15 models, since Bajaj is eyeing around 1/3rd of the entire super sports market and expects a sale of around 15,000 units a month.

Earlier, the Bajaj Pulsar 220 DTS-Fi was launched in 2007, with impressive differentiating features like oil cooled, fuel injected engine, tubeless tyres, front and rear disc brakes, digital speedometer console and parabolic/ellipsoidal projector headlamps.
