4 24th Jan: KTM 200 Duke, 30th Jan: Next Gen Pulsar?

The onslaught from Bajaj Auto is about to start.. Amen

The launch date of the much awaited KTM 200 Duke in India is on 24’th January 2012. The official countdown of the "baby" Duke in India began when Mr. Rajiv Bajaj gave away the launch date in an interview to a news channel (NDTV) a couple of weeks back.

Having already revealed the engine specs of the 200 Duke and provided a select bunch of Indian automotive journalists with its first ride feel, it’s just the "Price" and the "Booking + Delivery dates" that is left to be officially announced on 24’th of Jan 2012.

Before the Duke dust had even settled, another interesting development has taken place. In a very recent interview given to CNBC TV18 Mr. Bajaj has gone on record to say that a new product will be revealed on 30’th of January 2012, the launch of which will be around March 2012..!!

According to Mr. Bajaj:

    "We are hoping to pull off the first two (product launches) actually in March itself.

    In fact we have the product reveal on the 30th of January in Mumbai and hopefully follow-up with the second product soon after that..

What could these new products be?

In the last couple of years the demand/growth for automatic scooters in India has been more than that of motorcycles. There was ample indication at the 2012 AutoExpo that our desi bike makers are now tilting more in favor of making and selling automatic scooters. For the sake of the desi bike enthusiast, I now have even greater expectations especially from the Next Generation Pulsar.

After lying low for quite sometime and successfully defending its position, looks like the onslaught from Bajaj Auto is about to start.

Let the games begin..!!

Lets hope that all the expectations are met in the new gen Pulsar. And if it does, its going to give the competitors a run for their money. The Hunk, Xtreme, Unicorn may not be sufficient enough to compete with Pulsar.

Good luck Bajaj!!
