Follow along past the break to watch the entire video

While Bajaj is primarily known for its line of retro-style scooters in America, Bajaj is a major player in their home country of India in the motorcycle market. Their flagship model, the Pulsar, is a very respected motorcycle in India, and thanks to a tip from sanyam, we're able to show you this awesome video of the Pulsar in action. Good videography, professional stunt riding and well planned choreography make quite a display, even when the riders are mounted on machines with a mere 200cc of engine capacity. In case you were wondering, that 0.2-liter manages 18 horsepower, which looks to be plenty to have fun with, and it makes bikes like the Ninja 250 even more desirable. We wish that more small-bore sportbikes were available on our shores, but buyers have historically flocked to the much faster and more expensive middleweight class.

Videos such as this one make us glad to be internet-addicts, 'cause you know that corporate lawyers would have a hard time approving an ad in the U.S. Check the video after the jump.

      I've always been a fan of both Pulsar AND Bajaj ads... They are so much better than the competition.

      I used to own a Pulsar... Its a great little bike that easily beats the Honda and Yamaha equivalents..

        I have a CBR 150 and it looks identical to the sport bike on the second link (different colors and some other small things). It may be a blatant copy (mine came with Thai instructions), it may not be. Dont knock it till you try it. Ive had it for two years as a daily rider and its been almost perfect.

        Stupid winter- I can't wait to get some warmer weather so i can get out on my motorcycle.

      I ride the Pulsar 220 (20 Ps, Fuel Injection, Dual Spark Plugs, Projector Headlamps) the one shown most prominently in the Ad..

      Its a Sweet Bike to ride..



      By the Way Bajaj Auto has around 20-21 % stake in KTM and a technical collaboration with Kawasaki Japan..

      KTM and Bajaj will jointly produce 125-400 cc motorcycles and these will be on sale by 2010 across the globe.

      US riders need to tune up their thinking about small displacement bikes. For every new rider who starts on a Ninja 250/500R/ GS500 another starts on a supersport bike. Motorcycle manufacturers have decided that the demand doesn't exist for smaller bikes in the US market and so they don't produce any. Most small-bore bikes are 2 stroke, making them prohibited in the states. I love the small Aprilias but hate that I can't get one here because of the engine type.

      US riders like myself who would like access to cheap, fun, small displacement sportbikes have been frustrated for years, and so far I don't see any indication of a change in values that will allow it to happen. But a small engine that you can rev up high, a light, balanceable bike, simple mechanics, and a cheap price are a lot of fun.

      (my personal wish is for a 250cc or smaller four stroke sport bike that I can fit my 6'4" frame onto. Apparently the usual Ninja 250 rider is substantially smaller than I am.)

      Heh, with all the China hype, people tend to forget that there are other countries with rising economic importance that IMHO are a much better place for investment.
      To stay on topic, sadly the small displacement (sub 500cc) market is largely unimportant here in Germany, save for 125cc bikes and small scooters, AFAIK the rest of western Europe isn't much different.
      Those Bajajs look very sweet, and though they're equipped with relatively weak 4-stroke engines, 20HP is adequate. A high revving direct injection 2-stroke would make it awesome, but sadly those have fallen out of favor in the western world and are declining in developing countries too.

      thats so sweet

      Great commercial.

      I used to ride 150cc Pulsars when I was in India. Those were light and real fun; and at around $1200 apiece and more than $100 MPG, you cant complain.
        • 6 Years Ago
        I am glad you mentioned MPG, it comes close to 115 MPG, which is why most of the commuters buy these type of bikes.

      In case you did not know, Bajaj is world's number 4 two wheeler manufacturer which means it sells more than any of those chinese companies. It is also known for innovation like bringing fuel injection and dual spark plugs into motorcycles. Its quality and fit and finish is on par with Honda.

      Yes, China may have more number of manufacturers but many of them just make cheap knock offs. So what matters more for long term growth? Number of manufacturers or innovation?

      Started in 1945, Bajaj is also older than many chinese companies and it also owns about 15% of KTM. Maybe if you did some research, you'd realize that India is more than just a 'curry land'.
