These are among the better pics I came across in the Internet of the Pulsar 220 C.C

When the Hero Honda CBZ was launched in 1999, it brought about a major shift in the two wheeler segment in India. I have a gut feeling that the Bajaj Pulsar 220 will have a similar impact and mark another shift in the industry.
The expectations from the bike is sky high... a discussion thread on this bike has registered one of the longest ever threads in XBhp.Com..a

The bike has a long list of features... like..
  • First Oil Cooled Engine on an an Indian Bike (The Engine is Air Cooled though)
  • First Bike in India with "Twin Disc Brakes"
  • Fuel Injection
  • A Digital Instrument Console
  • Twin Headlamps (with lenses, Ducati Inspired), a Projector type another Parabolic type
  • LED (Light Emitting Diodes) assembly instead of bulbs in the tail light
  • Self Cancelling Turn indicators (Like Cars)
  • Back Lit Switches (Like Cars)

The last two features is something that I have never heard of in Bikes.... (is it the First in the world then..???)


The bike has been designed to share many of its components with its 150 C.C and 180 C.C siblings... this has resulted in a somewhat "compromised" design with the bike looking a little out of propotion... But this very strategy has now given Bajaj the position to price the Pulsar 220 very agressively... if priced right between Rs. 75,000 - Rs. 85,000 on road, I think Bajaj has a winner in its hands.

And oh yes..!! I might buy this one...
