Bajaj Pulsar 220F ABS is reported to get an ex-showroom price tag of INR 1,05,254. It was recently spotted with an ABS ring on its front disc brake, hinting at an updated product before the implementation of mandatory ABS rule for bikes with 125cc or above displacement. As expected, the motorcycle is carrying a new shade pattern and does not support any new design lines on its semi-faired body design. As Bajaj is yet to upgrade the ABS system on flagship Pulsars, the 220F will support a single channel unit.
Bajaj only offers dual-channel ABS option on Dominar 400, leaving a negligible price gap of INR 2000 between the units used on Pulsar RS200 and the flagship sports tourer. However, the price gap seen here is less than INR 7000. The 220cc, single cylinder engine on Bajaj Pulsar 220F is good for 20.93 PS at 8500 rpm and 18.55 Nm at 7000 rpm. The engine comes mated to a 5-speed gearbox and lacks advanced feature list like next generation Pulsars. Still, the sales number has a different story to narrate.
The 220F ABS was recently also seen at a dealership, click here to check out the photos. Bajaj Pulsar series registered slightly less than 70,000 units in sales number in December 2018. The boost in sales for most models came through the introduction of different offers by Bajaj where they offer free insurance and extended warranty with different bikes. Pulsar 220F has a cult fan following in India. One can see the detailed sales numbers for this 220cc, oil cooled machine and feel the difference that it creates for Bajaj Auto. Even the present generation of models like NS200 and RS200 are away from achieving this feat with aggressive design and more technology on offer.
