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 the latest buzz, Bajaj Auto is all set to introduce its BS6 Bajaj Pulsar series in the coming months. The brand will be revealing the BS6-compliant models of the Pulsar portfolio by the end of the year 2019 or in early 2020. The updated Pulsar series will include every Pulsar variant including the Pulsar 150, Pulsar 180, NS200, Pulsar 220F as well as the newly-launched Pulsar 125.

According to the reports, the BS6 Bajaj Pulsar series will be updated with fuel injection to meet the BS6 emission norms that will be implemented in India on April 1, 2020. A fuel-injected engine emits less pollution while at the same time is mandatory for BS6 compliance.

The Bajaj Pulsar RS200 is already equipped with fuel injection and it would be easier for the brand to make the motorcycle compliant with the BS6 emission norms. The compliance with the new BS6 emission norms will make the Pulsar series costlier by INR 5000 to INR 8000 though there has been no official confirmation made as of yet.

The recently launched Bajaj Pulsar 125 is currently available at a price tag of INR 66,618 for the disc brake variant. The motorcycle is powered by a 124.5cc, air-cooled, single-cylinder, four-stroke engine that is capable of churning out a maximum power of 12 HP at 8,500 rpm and a peak torque figure of 11 Nm at 6,500 pm. The engine is mated to a 5-speed gearbox.

The reports also suggest that the brand will also be updating their most affordable Pulsar 125 with a BS6-compliant engine though it remains to be seen whether the brand will be equipping the motorcycle with a fuel-injected engine or an e-carb engine.

Revolt Motors has recently debuted its two new electric motorcycles in the Indian market. Christened as RV300 and RV400, both the motorcycles can be purchased with “My Revolt Plan”, a unique payment system introduced by the brand. In addition to this, Revolt Motors has also teased their upcoming Revolt Cafe Racer electric motorcycle, which will be launched in the year 2020.

The digital rendering of the Revolt Cafe Racer has recently surfaced online. Brought to reality by SRK Designs, the rendering offers a clear view of the production variant of the motorcycle. According to the reports, the Chinese motorcycle SuperSoco TC has been recently spotted testing in India while one can easily assume the Revolt Cafe Racer to be based on the same.

As per the rendering, the front fascia of the motorcycle will feature round headlight design with an LED setup, housed in a silver mask. The LED setup is further expanded to the blinkers as well as the tail light.

The motorcycle will feature a retro-inspired round digital instrument console while the overall sportier design language will be accentuated by a clip-on type handlebar, featuring tan leather grips at either side. The Cafe Racer will get a rider only saddle mated to a unique cowl at the rear. The rear fender of the motorcycle will, in turn, feature the number plate, similar to the one seen on the Super Soco TC.

The Revolt Cafe Racer is expected to feature the same mechanical bits as that of the Revolt RV400. The 3.24kWh battery will be responsible for offering the maximum power while the rider can further operate the electric motorcycle in three riding modes: Eco, Normal and Sport, all offering varying range and top speed.

The suspension duties on the Revolt cafe racer will be handled by inverted forks at the front and a monoshock at the rear. The motorcycle will feature disc brakes at either end while being mated to CBS (Combined Braking System). The price tag of the upcoming cafe racer will be more or less similar to that of the Revolt RV400.

MV Agusta and Loncin Motorcycles announced their partnership in July 2019 and now the brands have promised to introduce sub-500cc motorcycles in the Indian market. According to the recent reports, the brands will be unveiling their first product in the said category by the end of the year 2020 or in early 2021.

Kinetic Motoroyale is responsible for offering MV Agusta motorcycles in the country while one can expect the new motorcycles to be available via the same dealerships. The reports suggest that the MV Agusta-Loncin treaty will be churning out four new motorcycle variants in India though it is not yet confirmed whether they will be assembled locally or not.

The partnership treaty between the two brands will be offering new motorcycles in the supersport, naked streetfighter, adventure tourer, and neo-retro portfolio. The reports suggest that the upcoming small capacity motorcycles will feature the design dynamics borrowed from the rich MV Agusta’s history while at the same time will feature unique sound characteristics and mechanical configurations.

The partnership between the two brands will offer motorcycles starting from 300cc displacement, going all the way up to 500cc engine capacity. The brand will be pricing the motorcycles competitively while all the four upcoming products will get a subsequent premium over the existing motorcycles in this segment.

The recent buzz suggests that the production part of the upcoming motorcycles will be taken care of by Loncin while MV Agusta will be responsible for development. The partnership between the Italian and Chinese brand will focus on bringing out an exclusive and efficiently engineered range of motorcycles for the audience. The same route has been taken by TVS and BMW-Motorrad partnership.

MV Agusta recently launched its much-awaited Turismo Veloce 800 in India. The brand is offering only the standard variant of the motorcycle in India while the customers in the international markets can avail the Veloce 800 in three other variants apart from the standard one.

One of the most anticipated motorcycles, the BS6 Royal Enfield Thunderbird 350X has been spotted several times testing on the Indian roads. The production version of the motorcycle is expected to hit the Indian market shortly.

The recently spied test mule of the motorcycle gives a clear insight to the production-spec design of the motorcycle while at the same time features additional official accessories, which will be made available to the customers at the time of launch.

The updated model of the RE Thunderbird 350X can be seen with the same retro-inspired switchgear as seen on the 2020 Classic 350. In addition to this, the spy shots also show the motorcycle with a single pod instrument panel as well as adjustable levers.

The BS6 Royal Enfield Thunderbird 350X has been spotted with a tall windscreen at the front while the motorcycle features a black engine guard. The brand has equipped the cruiser bike with saddlebag mounts finished in chrome. The saddle mounts can be further used as saree guards while the brand is now offering round pillion and rider footpegs with the updated edition of the motorcycle.

The single pod instrument cluster seen on the test mule of the motorcycle is a first for Thunderbird series which replaces the twin-pod unit seen on the current variant. The motorcycle now gets a new double-cradle frame in addition to a new BS6-compliant engine unit.

The brand has equipped the BS6 Royal Enfield Thunderbird 350X with a new single horn set up in addition to offering a redesigned tail lamp design as well as a split seat that replaces the single-seat saddle seen on the current version.

Royal Enfield is expected to launch the updated motorcycle sometime in early 2020 while one can expect it to be priced in close vicinity of INR 1.80 lakh to INR 1.85 lakh (ex-showroom). Once launched in India, the motorcycle will compete with the likes of Jawa 42 and the new model of the Bajaj Dominar 400.

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.

The updated model of Bajaj Pulsar NS200 Fi with ABS was spotted outside India earlier this year. The 200cc streetfighter has got a new set of shades for the international markets. The bike now features a white/silver fuel tank and a black rear under-seat panel on all three colours. The difference can be spotted on the FI monikers, finished in Neon Blue, Neon Yellow, and Neon Red on the three colour options. The matching pinstripe on the alloy wheels is another way to differentiate all three of them.

As Bajaj Auto manufactures the Pulsar NS200 in India and exports the same to different markets around the globe, the new colour combinations are expected to make their way to our country along with the launch of the fuel-injected model.

As the BS6 emission norms will come into effect starting from April 1, 2020, the brand would be updating the fuel-injected engine of the Pulsar RS200 to make it BS6-compliant, and the same engine will also be used in the updated model of the NS200 in the Indian market.

The fuel-injected Pulsar RS200 generates 24.5HP of maximum power at 9750 rpm and 18.6 Nm of peak torque at 8000 rpm. The non-fuel injected NS200 generates 23.5HP and 18.3 Nm. The gearbox stays 6-speed in both cases.

Bajaj Auto recently also launched an ad campaign showing their presence in more than 70 countries and their newly introduced NS200 model seems another step towards better sales in the international markets.

Pulsar NS200 is a great machine with a balanced streetfighter design and stylish fuel tank extensions. The brand recently introduced a 125cc model to its Pulsar lineup and the price range now starts at INR 64,000 for the drum brake model of the Pulsar 125.

The Fi model of Pulsar NS200 was earlier expected to launch in India around Diwali (October 2019) but as per the latest details available, the Fi+ABS model will now launch by the end of this year. The updated version of the NS200 is expected to be priced around INR 1.20 lakh (ex-showroom).

One of the most affordable motorcycles under the Pulsar moniker, Bajaj Pulsar 125 Neon has been recently launched by the brand in India at a price tag of INR 66,618.
