17 New 2008 Bajaj Pulsar (UG IV)..??

Received a few photos in my mailbox today.. Is it the 2008 Bajaj Pulsar UG IV variant..??

New Bajaj Pulsar UG IV..??

Upside Down Front Forks..!!



New Bajaj Pulsar UG IV..??

Bigger Sculpted and Aggressive looking tank..!!


I am sure that after getting your heart pumping and your pulses racing with the above photos/pics, I know this is going to be a cruel blow. But sorry guys, the photos posted above are actually of a modified Pulsar DTS-i 180..!!.

And the most interesting fact is that, this piece of art has originated from Indonesia..!!

Indonesia, the third largest two-wheeler market in the world after China and India is basically a market dominated by step thru two wheelers. But like India there is also a niche category of Motorcycle enthusiasts. It is this segment that Bajaj Auto is hoping to cater to with its Pulsar DTS-i 180 model which has been on sale in Indonesia since November 2006.

Carbon Fibre Look on parts

Carbon Fibre Finish

The above modifications carried out on the Indonesian Pulsar DTSi 180 goes to show the common tastes that bikers in Indonesia and India share.

The following modifications have been carried out on the Indonesian Pulsar DTSi 180..

  • Upside Down front forks


  • Monoshock at the rear


  • Tank Shrouds to give the bike a "Big" feel


  • Oversized front Disc Brakes


  • Rear Disc Brakes (the original front brake has been used here)


  • Integrated Turn indicators front/back


  • Half Chain Cover (Finished in "Carbon Fibre" look)


  • Split Rear Grab Rails (Finished in "Carbon Fibre" look)


  • Removable Pillion Seat Cover (Finished in "Carbon Fibre" look)

  • A Custom Paint Job


  • 110 section front/120 section rear, Bridgestone tyres


Details of Modifications

Details of Modifications

From the pictures the order of workmanship seems to be professional and of high order.

Upside Down forks, Monoshock, a Big Sharp Sculpted tank, special colors..?? And how about a FEAR THE "CARBON FIBRE BLACK" LOOK for the Pulsar UG IV..??

The mods were carried out by "Caprin Racing" of Surabaya, Indonesia. The total cost incurred for the entire modifications apart from the donor bike was around Rs. 40,000-42,000 (Indian Currency).


In the past all I have published were a few computer generated pictures of bikes which were either mailed to me by TBCI readers or downloaded from other websites or blogs which were created using photo editing software. Most of these pictures again have been of the Pulsar created by Indonesians. Let me make this clear that this shouldn’t be interpreted in any way that TBCI is biased towards Bajaj.

Thanks to "Caprin Racing", this time I could publish photos of a real and excellent modification job. The Bike Chronicles of India thanks Caprin Racing of Indonesia for sharing these photos with us.





Over to you Bajaj Auto:

Well now..!! When Bajaj decides to bring out the Pulsar UG IV variant (with TVS getting aggressive, I believe that is going to be soon), won't you like to see something similar..??

Upside Down forks, Monoshock, a Big Sharp Sculpted tank, special colors..?? And how about a FEAR THE "CARBON FIBRE BLACK" LOOK this time around..??

this is breath-taking.
is Bajaj listening?The guy who did it obviously seems to have a good choice! and I must say these indonasian fellows are better than us indians when it comes to mod jobs.
It has real goodies rather than only flash paint and stickers and a broad tyre at rear,like we see here.
kudos to them!

Bajaj should take a que from this mod about the tank design.Its time now bajaj should come up with the new version of pulsar as the market ahs already catched up with it in terms of features n goodies.

can the p180 be fitted with the p200 exhaust/silencer?

Payeng said...

The Exhaust Systems (Silencer) are very crucial for the performance of any vehicle...

It's better for the engine to not play around with the exhaust system of any bike and better stick to the one provided by the manufacturer.
