10 Chinese Copies of the Bajaj Pulsar..!!

Chinese Copies (Yes..!! Copies) of Hamara Bajaj Pulsar..!!

The other day I went shopping at Big Bazzar looking for an electric iron. Accordingly I went to the floor meant for home appliances and picked up one which was kept for display. On examination I found that the iron had the following words engraved on it.. "Made in PRC". I told my brother who had accompanied me, that it probably meant "Made in People's Republic of China". At that very instant the stall attendant who was standing nearby accosted us and tried to convince us that the iron picked up by me wasn’t from China but was actually a “Made in India product..!!”

I did not argue with the attendant about the country of origin of the electric iron but at the same time, I somehow couldn’t prevent a smile escape my lips.

"The photos posted below explains the reason why the attendant at Big Bazzar tried to convince us that the electric iron wasn’t a Chinese product.."

I still vividly remember that during my school days (in the late eighties and early nineties) anything made in a foreign country was a much sought after product. "Made in India" products were probably meant for people who couldn’t afford the exotic stuff. And look at the situation now.. is that an example of Brand India Shining..??

I acknowledge that some of the best stuff is manufactured in China. But the photos posted below explains the reason why the attendant at Big Bazzar tried to convince us that the electric iron wasn’t a Chinese product..

Chinese Copies of the Bajaj Pulsar by different manufacturers



The second (blue) one is the (in)famous "Gulsar" made by a Chinese manufacturer. Bajaj Auto has even won a legal battle against the manufacturers of the Gulsar (Yuck..!!) banning its sale in neighbouring Sri Lanka.

But like Agent Smith in Matrix III, looks like these copies won't stop to multiply.

Pathetic, these Chinese. No sense of proportion either.

Indeed, how has times changes.
I also very well remember, IMPORTED meant Heaven sent, we used to show off anything that was Imported and now the word Imported always is followed by a question mark.
Good for India, now our products are valued worldwide, look at Bajaj making their mark in South America and S.E Asia.
It does fell great to be an Indian!!!

Lots of interesting research done by you here! Well done!

Makes a nice read and view!

And now I am sure they will sale it at 50-60 % of the pulsar's price. I hope they have made this bike stronger than the pulsar.

It seems the root of the problem is the abundance of Chinese made spareparts for Pulsar bikes, outside of the engine kit. The body, headlamp, chassis, even the digital speedometer, all available there with such cheapo prices.

Just check out this P135 LS knock off:

Outside of engine kit and the exhaust pipe, how can you tell the differences ??
