Bajaj Pulsar N250, the newest in the Pune based motor giants’ most popular street bikes, is available at a starting price of Rs. 1,38,044 in Delhi. It is available in only one variant and single colour, though Bajaj says that other colours might get launched shortly. 

 

The Pulsar N250 is powered by a 249.07cc BS6 engine which generates power of up to 24.1 bhp and torque till 21.5 nm. The machine can reach a top speed of up to 148 kmph. The N250 comes up with an anti-locking braking system with both front and rear disc brakes, but it still features only a Single Channel ABS. 

 

The bike weighs 162 kg and has a fuel tank capacity of 14 litres.

 

Bajaj has kick-started a new era of its iconic Pulsar family with the launch of the N250. It is now the first naked 250cc segment bike ever produced by Bajaj. It has a minimalistic yet aggressive front section and a single-piece handlebar that provides a comfortable riding posture.

 

The N250 retains some styling cues of the NS200 but in a slightly refreshed avatar. The most distinctive aspect is the front face which comprises an LED projector flanked by eyebrow-like slim LED DRLs, though, that makes it look rather distinctly like the Mt15 by Yamaha. 

 

The edginess and aggression continue at the back with sharp fuel tank extensions and a sleek and raked tail section. As for the features, there’s an assist and slipper clutch for easy and safe gear shifts, along with a new semi-digital console. You also get a USB charging port sitting under the handlebar.

 

The 250cc, oil-cooled motor of the new Pulsar is the largest engine we have ever seen in this family. Bajaj says this is a free-revving engine and offers a meaty mid-range performance. 

 

This mean machine comes mated with a five-speed gearbox, which was honestly disappointing to see in a 250cc bike. It rides on 17-inch alloy wheels shod with 100/80 and 130/70 section tyres at the front and rear, respectively. 37mm telescopic forks and a mono-shock handle damping duties, while the braking setup comprises a single disc at both ends. The fuel tank capacity is quite impressive at 14-litres. 

 

As per the Automotive Research Association of India, the average mileage of Pulsar N250 is 39 kmpl.

 

The motorcycle has been introduced only in a grey paint scheme as of now. In India, the bike will go up against the likes of the Suzuki Gixxer 250 and the Yamaha FZ25.
