The updated Bajaj Pulsar N250 test mule was recently spotted with a USD fork. A few days ago the smaller NS160 was spotted with a digital Instrument cluster, and it is expected the Pulsar N250 will also get this update along with some other cool updates to make the whole N series equal to the competitors in terms of offerings.
Other than the USD fork, the rest of the test mule seems similar to the current N250. The USD fork is probably the same one used on the NS models, although since the N series is more commuter-oriented, the tuning will be different.
Apart from this, the new Pulsar N250 is also expected to get a Smartphone connectivity feature in the Instrument cluster since the smaller Pulsar N150 is also getting the same.
The addition of the above features would add great value to the Pulsars since most people have the mindset that Bajaj Pulsars don’t offer as many features as the competitors provide and are more or less barebone bikes, although some love the old-school instrumentation due to the fact that Pulsars have consistently maintained their legacy of providing a fun and engaging experience while maintaining their affordability and quality.
Speaking of affordability, with the addition of these updates expected the N models to also get an update on their prices albeit only a bit. So while the ABS variant of the Pulsar N250 currently comes with a price tag of Rs 1.50 lakh (ex-showroom), expect it to rise a bit more and ballpark somewhere in the Rs 1.58 – 1.65 lakh range.
The bikes seem ready to launch soon in case you are planning to buy one, however, if you are on a budget you might want to wait because, on 23rd January, Hero is going to debut a bunch of two-wheelers which includes the Highlight of the show Mavrick 440 and their most premium sporty commuter, the Hero Xtreme 125R, so stay tuned.
