Bajaj Auto has increased the prices of its new Pulsar 250 bike. The Bajaj Pulsar 250 range was launched in India in October last year. In the Pulsar 250 range, the Pulsar N250 was launched at an ex-showroom price of Rs 1.38 Lakh and Pulsar F250 at Rs 1.4 Lakh. However, these flagship Pulsar motorcycles have become a bit expensive now.
The Pulsar N250 is now priced at Rs 1,39,117, while the Pulsar F250 will now be available at an ex-showroom price of Rs 1,40,915. This means that the price of N250 has been increased by Rs 1,117, while the price of F250 has been increased by Rs 915.
With the increase in prices, Bajaj Auto joins the list of other motorcycle makers like Hero MotoCorp, TVS, which have made some of their vehicles costlier in the country to offset the increased input cost. The increase in prices is very minor, so it is not likely to impact sales.
Talking about the Bajaj Pulsar 250 range, the company has given a 249.07cc single-cylinder, oil-cooled engine in these bikes which generates maximum power of 24.1 Bhp at 8,750 rpm and peak torque of 21.5 Nm at 6,500 rpm. The bike is mated to a 5-speed gearbox which comes with assist and slipper clutch function. In India, the Pulsar 250 range competes with the Suzuki Gixxer SF 250, Yamaha FZ 25, KTM 250 Duke and the Husqvarna Vitpilen 250.
