Bajaj Auto has announced the launch of the Pulsar F250 and Pulsar N250 All-Black variants in the Indian market. These new variants of the Pulsar 250 range get styling upgrades and added features over the existing versions and here we list the top five of their highlights.
The biggest upgrade to the All-Black versions over the standard variants is the addition of dual-channel ABS. The previously launched variants of the Pulsar 250 range, for reference, used a single-channel ABS. Do note that the Yamaha FZ25 and the Suzuki Gixxer 250s (Gixxer 250 and Gixxer 250 SF), rivals to the Pulsar F250 and Pulsar N250, already come with dual-channel ABS. With this upgrade, the safety net on the Pulsar F250 and the Pulsar N250 is now at par with the competition.
The design remains similar to the standard versions, however, the new Pulsar F250 and the Pulsar N250 All-Black variants receive a new paint theme. This colour theme features contrasting finishes of glossy and matte tones across the bodywork. The styling is further enhanced with highlights of white and red graphics on the fairing, headlight cowl, and matching colour for the rim tapes. The All-Black variants will be sold alongside existing colour options that include Racing Red, Caribbean Blue, and Techno Grey. Do note that the rest of the colours would be available with the single-channel ABS form only.
The mechanical specifications retain the 249.07cc, single-cylinder, oil-cooled engine that makes 24.1bhp at 8,750rpm and 21.5Nm at 6,500rpm. The motor is linked to a five-speed gearbox that benefits from an assist and slipper clutch mechanism.
The hardware on the All-Black variants, excluding the ABS tech, remains identical to the rest of the versions. Thus, the suspension tasks are handled by telescopic front forks and a preload-adjustable rear mono-shock. The anchoring hardware, too, remains unaltered and the braking department comprises a 300mm front and a 230mm rear disc.
The prices have gone up and the Pulsar F250 and Pulsar N250 All-Black variants are available at Rs 1,49,978. In comparison, the single-channel ABS variants of the Pulsar F250 and Pulsar N250 are priced at Rs 1,44,979 and Rs1,43,680, respectively.
