- Bajaj Pulsar 250F spotted
- Features a semi-faired design like the Pulsar 220F
- Shares hardware with the naked Pulsar 250
After the upcoming Bajaj Pulsar 250 naked bike was spotted testing in February this year, its semi-faired sibling has now been spied for the first time. This variant is likely to be called the Pulsar 250F, following the existing nomenclature of the Pulsar 220F that too features a semi-fairing.
As can be observed in the new spy shots, the Pulsar 250F test mule was camouflaged but still revealed a lot of details. It incorporates a quarter fairing adjoining the headlamp section and the fuel tank. It also gets faring-mounted rear-view mirrors and clip-on handlebars, similar to the Pulsar 220F. At the rear, the grab rail looks identical to the previously spotted naked version but the tail lamp design is difficult to decipher due to the camouflage.
This is where the differences between the naked and the faired version end. The rest of the components like the design of the alloy wheels, tyre hugger, disc brakes and the stubby exhaust cannister are identical. Moreover, both bikes are likely to share the same brand new 250cc engine. Expect this oil-cooled motor to churn out around 24bhp and come equipped with a six-speed gearbox.
Bajaj’s decision to develop a naked and a semi-faired version, instead of a fully-faired bike, makes sense. As we know, the semi-faired Pulsar 220F enjoys more popularity and sales as compared to the fully-faired Pulsar RS200. The Bajaj Pulsar 250F will compete against the Suzuki Gixxer SF 250.
