The Bajaj Pulsar series of motorcycles are the most successful series of bikes in the market. It is one of the best performing bike series in India which ensures total customer satisfaction with its premium technologies. All bikes in this series ensure stunning looks, performance, affordable prices and fuel efficiency.
The Bajaj Pulsar 200 was unleashed in the Indian market in 2007; the third-generation power machine was the first fuel injected performance bike in the country with all the goodies one would like to see in bikes like digital clocks, LED tail lamps, projector head lamps, and rear disk brakes. All these features debuted on Pulsar 200 DTS-i. In 2008, Pulsar launched the 220 cc version, targeting the youth and focussing more on style and innovation.
Everything about the Pulsar 220 is about performance. The new technology of fuel injection helps the 220 cc oil cooled motor to play really quick. The bigger and stronger forks help to push harder. The design is sportier as well and lets the driver hit the corners aggressively. The P 220 has the biggest disk brakes, though it could slow you down. The oil cooler, clip-on handle bars, and fat tubeless tyres makes the Pulsar 220 technologically superior than its competitors like Yamaha R15. It has greater displacement and more power. Other standard features are parking lights and an aircraft-type fuel tank lid.
Pulsar 220 gets from the 0 to 60 kmph in 4.0 seconds and from 0 to 100 kmph in 11.1 s. Pulsar 220 has a maximum power of 21 bhp @ 8500 rpm at a maximum torque of 19.2 Nm @ 7000 rpm. The P 220 has a maximum speed of 132 kmph, much quicker than some of its competitors like the Karizma. The P 220 has a mileage of 68 kmpl.
In the corners, the P 220 is harder to get turned in but once you do it is more stable at intermediate speeds. The Pulsar bike has a softer suspension set up as well. The Pulsar 220 looks taller and the steering feel is heavier. The wheel base of the P 220 is 1350 mm. Pulsar 220 has a longer and wider rear fender and a wider pillion seat. Both the seats are comfortable for the long rides.
