Bajaj Auto has been working on the next-generation Pulsar series for quite some time now. The upcoming Pulsar 250F has been spotting testing once again in Pune. The spy shots of the same have been leaked online giving us a fair idea of what the bike might look like.
The spy images reveal a fully camouflaged test mule of the new-gen Pulsar 250F. To begin with, the bike is seen with an all-LED headlight. This unit is a single LED Projector flanked by sharper LED DRLs. From the front, the motorcycle looks a bit larger and taller than the existing model. Moving on, the windscreen is taller. It further has rear-view mirrors mounted close to its borders. Talking about the conventional bulb turn indicators, they have been replaced by LEDs. While the front foot pegs have been set slightly rearward. Much like 220F, the clip-on handlebar on the 250F gives the rider an upright and comfortable riding posture. The side profile of the bike features redesigned vents on the fairing. The rear view of the bike features an LED taillight. Besides this, the rear fenders have been shortened to give a sleek look to the bike. In terms of features, we can expect the upcoming 250F to get an all-digital instrument cluster with Bluetooth connectivity and navigation.
Performance-wise, the new-gen Pulsar 250F is likely to be powered by a 250 cc single-cylinder oil-cooled engine. However, the engine might make more power than what it made on 220F. Furthermore, the engine will get VVA (Variable Valve Actuation) technology as seen in the Yamaha R15 V3. This will help to improve the low- and top-end performance along with fuel economy. The new motor will be linked to a 6-speed gearbox and the stubby dual-barrel exhaust system.
New-Gen Bajaj Pulsar 250F: Hardware Setup
