On the 20th anniversary of the launch of the first-ever Pulsar in India, Bajaj Auto introduced the world to the Pulsar 250 twins. Dubbed the Pulsar N250 and F250, the new bikes see the Pulsar name enter the quarter-litre segment for the very first time.
So what are the standout features of the all-new Bajaj Pulsar N250 & F250? In this article, let’s list out the Top 5 Features of the Pulsar N250 & F250 that you need to know about.
1 – Engine
The Bajaj Pulsar N250 and F250 are powered by a new air and oil-cooled 249.07cc single-cylinder engine. The new powerplant features a single overhead camshaft and two valves along with fuel injection. The engine on the Pulsar F250 and N250 cranks out 24.16bhp at 8,750rpm and 21.5Nm of peak torque at 6,500rpm. The engine comes mated to a 5-speed constant mesh manual gearbox.
2 – Design
The new Pulsar 250 motorcycles feature a refreshed design. Both the N250 and F250 feature a single projector headlamp with the latter adding reverse boomerang daytime running lamps. The F250’s fairing is also quite aggressive and combined with the tall wind deflector gives the bike a rather beefy and aggressive look.
From the sides, the F250’s fairing smoothly melds into the fuel tank section, while the copper tinted engine and the stubby dual-barrel exhaust add character to the bike’s design.
At the rear, the distinct dual brake lights that mark out any bike as a Pulsar now almost join up at the top to form an X shape, which gives the rear of the 250 twins a rather sleek.
The two colours on offer, Racing Red and Techno Grey help accentuate the design.
3 – That Exhaust Note
The new Pulsar F250 and N250 feature a stubby double-barrel exhaust and the sound that it emits is quite a throaty one. The deep burble it makes when idling turns into a deep raspy growl when you bring the revs up a bit.
4 – The Infinity Display
The new Pulsar 250’s instrumentation is a new unit that is bezel-less. The instrumentation is an analogue-digital unit with the tacho taking pride of place in the centre. The new LCD display is on the right while all the warning lights and other indicators are on the left of the tacho. The instrument cluster provides a host of data including gear position and range.
5 – The Sneaky USB Port
Keeping with the times, Bajaj has provided riders with a way to keep their mobile devices charged with the provision of a USB port. Cheekily positioned between the fuel filler cap and the handlebars, it should easily allow riders to keep their phones fueled up on the go.
