Bajaj Pulsar is one of the most popular series in the brand’s portfolio. According to the recent reports, the brand is all set to launch the BS6-compliant models of the Pulsar series in the coming months. The reports also suggest that the brand will be launching the Bajaj Pulsar RS250 by the year 2022. In addition to this, the new set of 250cc motorcycles also includes the Pulsar NS250 and the Avenger 250.

Bajaj doesn’t have a lot of bikes in the entry-level quarter-litre segment to compete in the market with the likes of Suzuki Gixxer 250, Gixxer SF 250, KTM Duke 250, Honda CBR250R, Yamaha FZ25, and the Fazer 25. The launch of the Bajaj Pulsar RS250 is one of the major ways for the brand to up its game.

According to the recent buzz, the upcoming RS250 will be replacing the Bajaj Pulsar RS200 in the Indian market. The latter was introduced by the brand to get more sales in its segment though, achieving only limited sales with the RS200 is something the brand didn’t expect. Thus, updating the existing bike with a new engine as well as a new chassis frame would be one of the wisest decisions from the brand.

The brand is further expected to replace the Pulsar 180 with a 200cc model while the Pulsar 220F will be replaced by a 250cc Pulsar variant. The upcoming Avenger 250, on the other hand, will be replacing the existing Avenger 220 in the Indian market.

To make a promising impact on the customers, the next-gen Pulsar variants are expected to get a host of premium features in addition to better tyres and a refined engine. When launched in India, the Bajaj Pulsar RS250 is expected to get an ex-showroom price tag of around INR 1.60 lakh.

According to a recent report by Iwanbanaran, the upcoming Kawasaki Ninja ZX-25R will be manufactured by the Motorcycle & Engine division of Kawasaki Heavy Industries in Japan. The motorcycle will be made available in the Indonesian market via the CKD route.

As per the latest details available, the price tag for the 250cc 4-cylinder sportbike will stay between IDR 100 million to IDR 130 million (INR 5.08 lakh to INR 6.61 lakh). The Kawasaki Ninja ZX-25R will be one of the most expensive quarter-litre motorcycles to be ever launched by the brand. In comparison, the customers can avail the twin-cylinder Ninja 250 at a price tag of IDR 75 million (INR 3.81 lakh) in Indonesia.

The suspension duties on the motorcycle will be handled by upside-down forks at the front while the rear will feature a Uni-Trak monoshock suspension. Comparing the specs with that of the Ninja 650, the latter has not been equipped with USD forks at the front.

Powering the Kawasaki Ninja ZX-25R will be a 249cc, DOHC, 16-valve, 4-cylinder engine that will be capable of generating a power output ranging between 42HP to 46HP. The premium stance of the motorcycle will be further enhanced by the riding aids offered by the brand. The Ninja ZX-25R will also be equipped with ride-by-wire technology in addition to getting a standard traction control system.

The riders can further operate the sportbike in various riding modes. One can expect the brand to equip the motorcycle with a tubular chassis inspired by the mighty Ninja H2. The front tyre of the motorcycle may range between 100mm to 110mm while the rear is expected to measure between 140mm to 160mm.

As per the reports, the Kawasaki Ninja ZX-25R is expected to hit the Indonesian market in 2020 after its official unveiling at the Tokyo Motor Show in October 2019. The brand is highly unlikely to launch the Ninja ZX-25R in the Indian market anytime soon.

If a recent report is to be believed, Bajaj Auto is working on a quarter-litre 250cc adventure motorcycle named Pulsar AS250. The product is expected to get the familiar brand name and this time, Bajaj won’t repeat the mistake of simply putting a few plastic components on an existing motorcycle like it did in the case of NS200 and AS200.

The Pulsar AS250 is expected to be based on the yet-to-be-revealed KTM 250 Adventure. The new product will help Bajaj Auto get three different engines under three separate brand names (NS, RS, and AS), each having their own unique purpose to serve. This will also help the buyers as more options within the same price bracket always help to get the perfect match.

Bajaj Pulsar AS200
Bajaj Pulsar AS200 (Discontinued Model)

Rajiv Bajaj once cleared the fact that Bajaj Auto wishes to conquer every typical segment and new products with personal brand identity will come out of their research in the coming months. This was said a few months back and it can be safely be assumed that one or two products would have even entered the research pipeline within this period.

There have been rumours of Bajaj Auto working on a scrambler version of the Dominar 400 as well. The first try with AS150 and AS200 failed because they were simply the reworked versions of existing products in the lineup.

Bajaj Pulsar AS150
Bajaj Pulsar AS150 (Discontinued Model)

The upcoming Bajaj Pulsar AS250 will feature the 248.8cc single-cylinder liquid-cooled engine based on the KTM 250 Duke. The engine is good for 30 HP at 9000 rpm and 24 Nm at 7500 rpm while uses 6-speed gearbox with a slipper clutch for smooth gearshifts. It is expected that Bajaj will tune the engine to make it more suitable for the adventure purpose.

The Pulsar AS250 will certainly bring high ground clearance, noticeable torque, and tough suspension components than any other Bajaj bike. The company is expected to place the AS250 around the price tag of Pulsar RS200, most probably around INR 1.40 lakh (ex-showroom).

The recent reports have brought out some good news for the KTM enthusiasts. The reports suggest that the brand is all set to focus on bringing out a 250cc variant of the KTM Adventure and it will be one of the most affordable variants of the adventure motorcycle series. The motorcycle is expected to be christened as KTM 250 Adventure while getting similar traits as that of its elder sibling 390 Adventure which is eagerly anticipated by the fans across the country.

Taking the styling cues from the KTM 390 Adventure, the upcoming 250cc motorcycle will feature the same premium bits though, the brand will be differentiating the two based on cost factors. As the name suggests, the brand will be equipping the KTM 250 Adventure with a 250cc engine. The front fascia of the motorcycle is highly expected to feature a halogen bulb-powered headlight in place of the LED unit. The brand is likely to take the same route they took with the styling of the 250 Duke in comparison to the 390 Duke.

In addition to this, the fully-coloured digital instrument panel seen on the 390 Adventure will be given a miss for its younger 250cc sibling. The reports also suggest that KTM will be replacing the Continental tyres used in 390 Adventure with cheaper tyres for the 250cc variant though the front and rear wheel specifications will remain as that of the 390 Adventure.

The motorcycle is expected to get the same engine specifications as that of KTM 250 Duke though the brand will be launching the machine with a BS6-compliant engine that might tweak the power and torque figures. The BS4-compliant engine of the KTM 250 Duke, for instance, generates a total power of 30HP and 24Nm of maximum torque.

As per the latest buzz, the KTM 250 Adventure will be officially showcased at the upcoming EICMA 2019 along with the KTM 390 Adventure. The brand will be launching the latter before the end of 2019 while the 250 Adventure is expected to launch in India next year. We expect the 390 Adventure to be priced around INR 3 lakh while the affordable 250cc sibling will get a lesser though competitive price tag.

According to the latest buzz, Benelli is all set to re-enter the quarter-litre segment with the launch of two new 250cc bikes in India. The brand currently retails Leoncino 250, TRK 251, and the BN 251 in the quarter-litre segment in the international markets.

At present, Benelli is selling 6 motorcycles in the Indian market namely TNT 300, TNT 600, 302R, TRK 502, TRK 502X, and the recently-launched Leoncino 500.  The brand is keen on updating its portfolio to a total of nine motorcycles by the end of the year 2019 with the launch of the Imperiale 400, TRK 251, and the Leoncino 250.

Benelli TRK 251

Benelli is expected to launch the Imperiale in the Indian market soon while one can further expect the brand to launch the 250cc bikes shortly after that. The brand has also confirmed that the upcoming quarter-litre motorcycles will be localised heavily to keep the cost under check while at the same time, both the motorcycles will get different specs when compared to their international counterparts.

Benelli Leoncino 250

Launching the Leoncino 250 first would be one of the best decisions made by the brand since the 250cc retro motorcycle category has not been explored in India as of yet. This will offer the brand a competitive edge in addition to offering an affordable option to the enthusiasts of Leoncino 500. Once launched in India, the Leoncino 250 is likely to get a price tag ranging between INR 2.2 lakh to INR 2.5 lakh.

Since ADV segment is also on the rise in the Indian market, launching the Benelli TRK 251 will also offer the brand a competitive edge when compared to the brands like Hero and Royal Enfield. One can expect the brand to price the TRK 251 adventure motorcycle between INR 2.5 lakh to INR 2.80 lakh (ex-showroom). The road-based ADV is likely to get a lesser price tag when compared to the BMW G310GS, which is currently available at INR 3.49 lakh (ex-showroom). The upcoming 250cc bikes from the Italian brand are expected to capture the quarter-litre segment by a storm.

Classic Legends, a brand owned by Mahindra, has been rumoured to be working on the comeback of Yezdi and BSA bikes in the Indian market since 2018. As per the latest buzz, the new-gen Yezdi motorcycles will reportedly launch in India next year. Yezdi is a very popular brand name that was originally introduced in India in 1969. It was announced in the country with a tagline that said,” Forever Bike, Forever Value” and this captured the minds of numerous bike enthusiasts.

Mahindra-owned Classic Legends has also brought back the Jawa Motorcycles and a similar story is set to be repeated with Yezdi. In its era, it was a brand name loved by all the bike enthusiasts and mechanics. It’s sporty, quick, and light to handle motorcycles created a vogue. The popularity of Yezdi grew multiple times when its motorcycles were used in a number of Bollywood movies.

Although there has been no official notification from the company’s side other than the official website of Yezdi motorcycles claiming in the last line saying, ”This sleeping giant has now rubbed its eyes and is now waking up… the ride will be a lot more fun once again”.

Sketches of Classic Yezdi Motorcycles

The official website of Yezdi has been active on the internet since July 2017 but currently, it contains information only about the legendary classic motorcycles. Speculations have been touring the internet that the newer models by the brand are expected to be showcased at the Auto Expo in February 2020.

These conjectures are a result of Classic Legend’s acquisition of rights to use Yezdi and BSA brand names for the Asian market that also includes India. This venture of the Classic Legends for the resurrection of another iconic motorcycle brand after Jawa can be expected to be positive as Yezdi and Jawa motorcycles already have a strong fan following in India.

Despite no confirmation, it can be expected that the brand will most probably equip the Yezdi motorcycles with the same 293cc single-cylinder liquid-cooled fuel-injected engine. It is also being said that the upcoming Yezdi motorcycles could also be equipped with a re-tuned 250cc version of this engine.

The bikes can be expected to be available at very competitive prices as Yezdi and Jawa motorcycles will share a lot of components which will further help the brand in reducing the production cost. At present, the Jawa motorcycle range starts at INR 1.55 lakh (ex-showroom).
