New Delhi: Bajaj has had a tremendous shoot-up post the launch of their Pulsar-series. Bajaj being the KTM shareholder is seeking to launch its fresh models based on the KTM platform.
It (Bajaj) was supposed to launch the KTM Duke 125 in the March 2011 but they seem to have impeded the launch for time being and instead they want to push the envelope further by launching more of its iconic Pulsar models built around a completely new platform, quite similarly to the one previously seen on the Bajaj Pulsar 135 LS (Light Sport). These mocked-up models will be lighter, faster and will be reaching the pockets of the Indian costumer.
The company will completely transform the Pulsar series from 125cc to higher capacities. It (Bajaj) targets the budding riders as its bikes are comparatively rather packed in than the competitive companies.
Looking at the clandestine picture, the tyres sizes and a drum brake on the rear, hints at the fact that this will be an economical performance machine for budding riders. Running an impressive new mono-suspension on the rear and fatter front suspension also throws light on the new platform with a solid fat box-section swing-arm adding to the altered dynamics.
The motorcycle might be on display in the Auto-Expo 2012, New Delhi. Bajaj is certainly to take the Indian customer by storm, yet again!
