Bajaj Auto will bring the new Pulsar range to the Indian market by 2022, reports ThrustZone. The source report further adds that the Pune-based two-wheeler manufacturer will also introduce the quarter-litre variants of the Pulsar and the Avenger around the same time.

The next-gen Bajaj Pulsar will benefit from all-new styling and features that will help it compete against an ever-growing list of rivals more efficiently. The silhouette should be the same as that of the old model, although the finer details will be different for a refreshed look. The feature list may include full-LED headlight and a digital instrument console (possibly with Bluetooth connectivity).

The BS-VI upgrade to the current-gen Bajaj Pulsar is unlikely to bring any major visual changes or equipment upgrades for reasons. One is to keep the price hike as low as possible, and the second is to save the best for the next-gen model. All two-wheelers sold in the Indian market have already witnessed a spike in prices due to the mandatory addition of CBS/ABS technology and the revised insurance rates.

The BS-VI compliance will require the addition of hardware components such as fuel injection system and O2 sensors among others. The ex-showroom prices will witness up to 15% increase with the BS-VI upgrade.

Check out the existing prices and the expected tag (both ex-showroom Delhi) post the BS-VI upgrade (for the Pulsar range only) in the table below. Do note that the expected prices in the table estimate a 15% increase. Actual rates may differ:
