With a 250 cc engine, the new Pulsar 250 packs a punch and delivers in power. There are many reasons why you should buy the new Bajaj Pulsar 250. In this article, we will let you know the key differences between the older Pulsar 220 & the new Pulsar 250.
Whether you are a fan of the naked version of the bikes or if you prefer the faired version, the new Pulsar 250 has got something for you.
The Specifications of Pulsar 250
Bigger & Better Engine
The all new Pulsar 250 is powered by the single cylinder oil cooled petrol engine with a displacement of 249.07 cc. It produces a maximum power of 24.5 PS and a maximum torque of 21.5 Nm. The engine is mated with a 5 speed transmission gearbox. That is the power of the new engine is 4 PS more than the Pulsar 220F. Similarly the new Pulsar F250 is also 4 kg heavier than the older Pulsar 220F. Even the naked version N250 is 2 kg heavier than the old one.
The New tyres
The new Pulsar 250 also sports a larger wheel on both the front and the rear. With a 100/80 tubeless tyre on the front and a 130/70 wheel tubeless on the rear the new tyres are substantially larger than the Pulsar 220F. This makes the new Pulsar more manoeuvrable and in control on roads. Riding in slippery roads or off-road stretches will no longer be an issue.
Brakes & Suspension of Pulsar 250
The braking duty is carried out by a massive 300 mm disc on the front and a 230 mm disc brake on the rear. The front suspension of the Pulsar 250 is the conventional telescopic shock absorbers. However, it gets a new mono-shock suspension with nitrox. With more braking power and a single channel ABS, the new Pulsar 250 will be more comfortable to ride in the heavy city traffic. At the same time the monoshock suspension will give a smooth riding experience.
The shock absorber will also provide a good suspension for slight off-road trips. However, the riding stance and the general dimensions of the Pulsar 250N is not specifically made for touring.
All about the Features of Bajaj Pulsar 250
Bajaj Pulsar 250 is packed with many stunning features such as the new LED headlights and tail lights. With projector LED headlights, the road visibility become much better even during pitch black conditions. The stylish DRLs and turn signal lamps of Pulsar 250 are all LED lights.
The bike is also equipped with a digital instrument cluster that includes tachometer, odometer, trip meter, fuel gauge, clock, gear indicator, etc. The analogue speedometer ensures a touch of nostalgia and gives a grounded look.
The Pulsar also has an aerodynamic looks that reduces the air friction in your fast rides. The faired version F250 comes in two colours. The techno grey with black seats and a racing red with black seats. Both the colours look majestic and adds a style and class to the bike. The naked N250 version comes only in the Techno Grey colour with red highlights.
What is the Difference between Pulsar N250 & Pulsar F250?
The new Pulsar 250 comes in two different styles. The N250 & the F250. So, what is the difference between the N & F versions? If you are a newbie when it comes to bikes, then this is an ordinary question and we explain it in detail here.
Bikes can be classified as two main designs. The naked N design and the Faired F design. The naked design of the bike will not have a large wind shield or a fixed dome on the front. Basically, the handle bar will be easy to control and you won’t have a large glass or wind shield to protect you from the onward wind blow. At the same time, the N design is easier to ride inside the cities and in tight corners. The absence of the extra casing and paddings on the front makes the bike look shorter and as a result, the effective centre of gravity is also much lower.
In case of the F or faired design, the bike will have a wind shield or a prominent dome and a fixed front part. This makes the bike bulkier and heavier. At the same time, it also results in the slight increase of the centre of gravity. However, the large wind shield on the front protects you from fast blowing winds. On the highway, where the winds are notorious to hit you on the face, the F designs are better.
Having said that, the riding conditions, riding position of the bike and the stance determines which is better for you.
The caveat is both these bikes have a similar seat position and aggressive riding stance which could be a bit of let down on long road trips.
Which One Should You Buy Pulsar N250 or the Bigger Pulsar F250
If you are someone who will spend the most part of your riding within the city limits then you can buy the Pulsar N250 as it will suit your needs. On the other hand, if you are a frequent traveller and take fairly long trips of a several 100s of km on the roads, then you should definitely choose the Pulsar F250.
Bajaj has one of the best distribution and service network in the country and no matter which one you buy, you can always find a service centre close to you.
