Hands-On Report:-

The new Pulsar has a very sporty riding position. The handlebar is lowered a bit and foot pegs are also kicked back for sportier riding position. The bike has great acceleration and the acceleration is awesome. We found the vibes to be lower than Pulsar 180 kinda Unicornish. The new split seats (from Pulsar 220) look great and are comfortable.

The switchgear quality is top notch and paint quality is really good and seems like it will last long. The Headlight bulb and the pilot lamps (wolf eys) are white. They are Halonix 35/35W bulb i expected brighter Headlamps. Sadly u cannot put bigger bulbs without any mods as The headlight and pilot lamps are not on battery. They get their power from the alternator.

The bike is loaded with MRF Zapper Tubeless tires 90/90 at front 120/80 at back. The tubeless zappers have great grip. There is a Bigger 260mm disk upfront and a 130mm drum brake on rear. There is no chain cover. The bike uses O`ring sealed chain which promise to last longer than the chain used in other indian bikes.

Those who like Kicking better play Football, there is no Kick starter on this new Pulsar. The only way to start the bike is through Electric start and if the battery dies, u can always push start the bike. There is no harm push-starting a Carburated bike. The engine roars more and exhaust note is better. Company claims the top-whack to be 130km/hr but that can be known only after a full road-test. Watch out for this space and we will be bringing a full road-test soon.
