Pulsar BSVI launch expected in the coming few weeks. All the models will be carried over to the next regime, including the older-gen versions…
In quarter 3 and quarter 4 of 2018-19, brand Pulsar registered sales of 71,145 units and whopping 90,643 units respectively and this excluding the Pulsar RS200 which the company counts in the next, more premium ‘S2’ segment internally. With this, Bajaj ended up having a 52 percent of market share in the ‘S1’ segment.
Pulsar 150, as always, is the highest grosser with all its variants. Even the faired Pulsar 180F has added volumes to the overall tally. And the Pulsar 220 has been an emphatic seller for the brand.
With this, we are told that all the Pulsar models will go to the new, cleaner BS VI era. Currently, Bajaj sells Pulsar 125 Neon, Pulsar 150 Neon, Pulsar 150 standard, Pulsar 150 Twin Disc, Pulsar 180, Pulsar 180F, Pulsar 220 apart from the newer gen models under the NS and the RS tags.
The stricter emission compliance will be achieved by the use of fuel injection in some models whereas we have also learned that the entry level models may also get electronic carburettors which are a lot cheaper.
Pulsar BSVI Launch
The BSVI motorcycles may end up losing a wee bit of performance in the end and with the added equipment, they are expected to cost a few thousand rupees more than their current prices. Bajaj is expected to start launching these BSVI compliant motorcycles soon, probably in the coming few weeks. The decision will be taken based on the readiness of its models and the inventory (of BSIV models) available at various dealerships.
