2024 Bajaj Pulsar N250 launched at Rs 1.51 lakh

The recently launched 2024 Bajaj Pulsar N250 is priced at Rs 1,50,829 (ex-showroom Delhi), making it just Rs 851 more expensive than the previous model. Its main rivals in the market include the Suzuki Gixxer 250 (Rs 1,81,400), KTM 250 Duke (Rs 2,39,000), and TVS Apache RTR 200 4V (Rs 1,46,820).

New Features and Enhancements:
The updated Bajaj Pulsar N250 comes with several notable updates. It now offers new red, black, and white color options to choose from. The major enhancements include an LCD instrument console with Bluetooth connectivity for calls, SMS alerts, and turn-by-turn navigation. This new console displays essential information like speedometer readings, odometer, distance to empty, and mileage data, similar to the updated Bajaj Pulsar NS200.

The bike also sees a significant improvement in its handling with the introduction of a 37mm inverted fork, replacing the telescopic fork setup of the previous model. This update is complemented by switchable traction control, ABS modes (Rain, Road, On/Off road), and ride modes that cater to different riding conditions. The On/Off road mode specifically tunes down the rear ABS for off-road riding experiences.

Additionally, the bike now features a revised tire setup with a 110-section front and 140-section rear tire arrangement, providing better stability. Despite a slightly shorter wheelbase of 1342mm and an increased seat height of 800mm, the bike’s overall weight has gone up by 2kg to 164kg.

Technical Specifications and Performance:
Under the hood, the Bajaj Pulsar N250 retains its 249cc single-cylinder air/oil-cooled engine, generating 24.5PS power and 21.5Nm torque. It comes paired with a 5-speed gearbox equipped with an assist and slipper clutch system. The bike’s braking system comprises a 300mm front disc and 230mm rear disc with dual-channel ABS as standard.

Future Updates and Market Impact:
With these comprehensive updates, Bajaj Auto has addressed previous concerns about the Pulsar N250’s features and performance. The inclusion of advanced features like traction control, ride modes, and Bluetooth-enabled navigation strengthens its competitiveness against rival models. Moreover, the slight price increase of just Rs 851 over the previous model makes it an attractive choice for riders seeking modern features and enhanced riding capabilities. Additionally, the forthcoming updates for the Pulsar F250 and the confirmed launch date of the Bajaj Pulsar NS400 further add excitement to the brand’s lineup for Pulsar enthusiasts.
