The Bajaj Dominar, this time around, is going to ride from the Arctic to the Antarctic, well not exactly because that’s physically not possible on a motorcycle as there is a lot of water between the two continents. It is, however, possible, to touch both poles as one extends towards north from Canada and the other extends towards south from Argentina. So the Dominar is going to ride across the North and South American continents in a 5 Leg journey. Let us learn more about it in detail and understand its significance on Dominar 400 and Bajaj as well.
1 crore of a single brand Motorcycle is the most joyous occasion for any manufacturer. It marks their proficiency in understanding market demand and delivering the consumer-friendly product. When I say “Consumer friendly” I am referring to the huge number of people who still buy the Pulsar 150 for their daily commute. Pulsar 150 sells for Bajaj but it is somehow keeping the company from continuing their innovation cycle, by this time, we should have been driving the next generation of Pulsar 150, anyways that's a topic for another time. Today we are focusing on how disappointing the new Pulsar Ad is.
It makes sense to focus on Pulsar 150 as it is the best selling Pulsar for Bajaj but instead of offering true mechanical and design updates, the company is just slapping a new paint job every now and then. With the 150 cc being crowded by much-advanced Gixxers, Hornets and Apaches, Bajaj is trying to literally milk every drop of sale which they can get out of Pulsar 150. It is time to let go of the old Pulsar and here’s why.
Bajaj Dominar is such a bike which can impress even a premium bike owner. It's not just the ABS and the triple spark engine, but how all of it comes together in just under Rs 2 lakh. With its versatile nature, super affordable price tag and consumer-friendly build, one can easily live with the Dominar 400.
The bike launched by Bajaj in 2012 was way ahead of its time. So much so that the company decided to stop its production and relaunch it in 2017. I am talking about the Pulsar 200 NS. It is the most successful concept to have ever come out of Bajaj’s R&D. The bike sits on a perimeter platform which has extensively been used in Pulsar RS 200, AS 200, NS 160, AS 150 (NS = Naked sport, AS = Adventure sport, RS = Race sport) and Dominar 400. Despite branching off to so many genres, the NS 200 still remains the most preferred bike in the sports series of Bajaj motorcycles and rightly so, Let me explain why.
It’s the battle of the Naked motorcycles. Pulsar 200 NS has been in our market, almost unchanged since 2012. It is only challenged by its foreign sibling the KTM Duke 200. On the side of the Japanese, the FZ-25 represents the collective stride of Yamaha’s R&D which has given us a specially designed bike for India. So without wasting any time, let’s compare these two and settle the score.
Every bike out there is getting equipped with ABS but still, people get confused between non-ABS, Single channel ABS and Dual channel ABS. We have done a separate article about the whole topic and you can check it out here. With an ever-increasing amount of traffic, safety should be the topmost priority when you’re out buying a motorcycle. Today we are going to list 5 affordable motorcycles which are high on safety and easy on your bank account. Let’s begin:
The new Pulsar 150 initially looked like the old model with just a rear disc. On close inspection, it's clear that this isn't the case. There are quite a lot of changes in the new model which will not only make it look good but also perform better. Let’s take a look at them.
It is the bike which clearly should have won against its arch rivals but it didn't. It failed so badly that in order to sell it to the people, Its parent company (Bajaj) had to make lousy advertisements about another brand. The motorcycle is not a mechanical failure but a marketing failure.
The generation born in the 90’s knows Bajaj Pulsar as a household name. It is a motorcycle, whose story we don’t have to listen from our elders because we have grown up with it, literally. When we were teenagers we were presented with a simple design Pulsar, capable of everyday motorcycling needs and a little fun on empty roads. Now, when all of us have grown up, we have Pulsars which can scream their way up to 150 km/h. that’s the kind of relationship our generation has with the Pulsar. So let's take some time out in reliving its history.
