- Triumph likely to borrow engine from new Pulsars
- Will have different outer casing
- Launch in 2022
Just yesterday, we got you the exclusive pictures of the next generation Bajaj Pulsar 250. And through that pictures, it was revealed that this new 250cc engine will be air-cooled and not liquid-cooled.
Today, we tell you that Triumph’s most affordable motorcycle that will be made in India is likely to share its engine with the next generation Bajaj Pulsars. Both the companies have been working on this motorcycle for the last the last three years. According to our sources, the Pune-based manufacturer decided to go back to air-cooled option for a number of reasons. Firstly, it will help the brand keep overall costs in check which will directly impact the pricing of the bike. Plus, its rivals like the Suzuki Gixxer 250 and the Yamaha FZ25 also gets air-cooled engines. So it didn’t make sense for Bajaj to continue with a liquid-cooled engine when none of its competitors are offering one.
The second reason being Bajaj could use the 200cc version of this long stroke motor on the upcoming Triumph motorcycle. So it didn’t make sense for the Pune-based manufacturer to develop an entirely different engine platform for this cruiser. This new engine is likely to churn out good amount of torque at the low and mid-range. But the casing of the Triumph is likely to be a bit different as it will carry modern retro styling.
We are expecting more details on this new motorcycle and engine very soon. So stay tuned to BikeWale.
