Bajaj works in collaboration with David Pieris Motor Company Ltd. (DPMC) of Sri Lanka to sell their bikes in the sub continent country. DPMC is one of Sri Lanka’s leading 2 wheeler providers with a widespread countrywide authorized dealership network which is responsible for sales, distribution, spares, marketing and service to its products.
A few days back Pulsar 220 DTSi was launched in the Sri Lankan market. Bajaj already had eight models currently in the market; Platina 100, Platina 125, CT100, Boxer BM 100, Discover 100, Discover 135, Pulsar 150 and Pulsar 180 and Pulsar 220 forms the 9th model in the lineup. Surprisingly, Bajaj doesn’t have the pocket sized 4 valve technical gem Pulsar 135LS in Sri Lankan market yet. It makes a lot of sense to launch this bike in a market like Sri Lanka especially when the bike is doing wonders in India and other countries like Indonesia etc. In fact, looking at the current success rate of the bike we guess it would not take much time for Bajaj to launch it in Sri Lanka.
Pulsar 220 DTSi launched in Sri Lanka is exactly the same model which is sold in India. The bike produces 21.04PS of maximum power and 19.12Nm of peak torque from its 220cc 4 stroke, air cooled DTSi engine. The bike carries the same 2 years or 30,000 kms (whichever is earlier from the date of purchase) warranty. Contrary to Bajaj providing 4 free services in India, DPMC offers two free services within 2 months or 2500 kms (whichever occurs earlier). These launches frequently reflect Bajaj’s great interest in the foreign market and their success rate also makes us feel proud that an Indian company is doing our country a good name.
