Bajaj might launch off-road motorcycles, after the success of AS series

When you utilize the word Adventure with bikes, one as a rule thinks going dirt road romping however that is not the situation with Bajaj Auto’s recently launched Pulsars, the 150 AS and the 200 AS. While both get Adventure in their name, they are strict on-street bikes with street tyres, street suspension and nothing that would make them go in the ball park of off-roading.

Still, the organization has felt free to utilized the Adventure Sport tag on these Pulsars on the grounds that it is the start of things to come. Bajaj may just launch off-roader Pulsars just in case these take off well. Before we get excessively happy, just remember that Bajaj won’t be dispatching rough terrain Pulsars till the 200 AS and 150 AS are fruitful as these bikes are a stage in that course.

On the off chance that customers are seen liking this idea, then the organization will bring more Adventure Pulsars which would have off-road tyres, long suspension travel, higher curved guard and increased ground leeway.

Off-road bikes aren’t extremely mainstream in India, in any event that is the thing that can be said in the wake of seeing the reaction to the Hero Impulse. Despite the fact that there is an audience for these bikes, there is no low-cost off-road bike segment and off-roading bikes in the country are the likes of Triumph Tigers, Suzuki V-Storm or the Kawasaki Versys which cost on the higher side of things.

KTM appears to have retired arrangements to dispatch a generally made Adventure bicycle while there is no Impulse 250 on the cards. Let us see how the segment pans out in future.
