Bajaj Auto Limited (BAL), the leading Indian Two wheeler-maker, launched its popular 220 cc bike Bajaj Pulsar with a minor facelift in the form of a new colours and graphics. The colours are still the old ones but now feature dual tone paint, to make the Pulsar stand out of the populated Pulsar motorcycles on the road.
From the initial details we have about this facelift, the two tone Bajaj Pulsar 220 is already on Bajaj showroom floors. The front fairing, handlebars and grab rails are now completely black, while the crank is finished in silver colour. The silver treatment from the engine has been extended to the foot pegs as well. The red coloured Pulsar 220 is now half black. In essence, Bajaj seems to have taken a leaf out of Hero Honda’s book by giving the Pulsar 220 a paint job.
As we report earlier, Mr Rajiv Bajaj was officially quoted as saying that a new ‘upgrade’ for the Pulsar will be introduced sometime soon? Now it seems that stock clearance is the motive behind this two tone extravaganza. The Pulsar turns 10 this October and Bajaj Auto needs to clear inventory to make way for the new model. The new paint job and graphics will help in just that. Now Bajaj Auto can just not miss that historic date, and what better way to celebrate a decade of the grand success that the Pulsar has been, than introducing a next-gen model.
