Bajaj Pulsar 220 was recently updated to meet BSIV emission norms.
The newest addition to the Bajaj V series - the Bajaj V12 - was just introduced, and there is already speculation of bigger options in the works. Oberdan Bezzi, the Italian designer has released a few renderings of Bajaj 'V22', using the Bajaj Pulsar 220 as the base.
The frame and powertrain have been borrowed from the semi-faired motorcycle. The 220 cc oil cooled mill is capable of producing 21.05 PS of maximum power at 8,500 rpm and 19.12 Nm of peak torque at 7,000 rpm. The renderings show the bikes with upside down front forks. The above render apes the look of a modern day cafe racer, while the one below gets a Scrambler-ish look.
The brake system gets Brembo discs at both ends. The Scrambler even gets chunky off-road tyres and ABS too is present. Interestingly, even the Bajaj Pulsar 220 does not get ABS, even as an option. However, as this is an imaginary concept, note that some of the features or design elements may not make it to the final version, should Bajaj decide to work on such a model.
Moreover, Rajiv Bajaj has been clear about Bajaj V’s brand positioning - as a premium commuter. Using a bigger and more powerful engine does not seem like a game plan which Bajaj will use, at least for now.
