What you see here is a motorcycle that looks like a Ducati Scrambler. That said, you'd be surprised to know that the bike underneath is a Bajaj Pulsar 180.
Apart from the engine and the chassis, every part has been sourced from various manufacturers or custom-made in-house. In fact, the motor has been bored-out to displace 220 cc, and an oil cooler has been added as well, while the frame has been modified to attain the scrambler look. The modification has been carried out by an enthusiast - Emraan Shaikh, at a cost of INR 92,000.
Most of the components on the modified Bajaj Pulsar 180, like suspension, swingarm, alloys, engine belly pan and the side-mounted exhaust are sourced from the KTM 390 Duke. Furthermore, the disc brakes and front fender too are listed from the 390 Duke. The motorcycle features a round LED headlight with DRLs and an off-set speedometer. The chassis has been redesigned, while a fake engine mount replicates the original frame.
The custom Bajaj Pulsar 180 scrambler features a wide handlebar with bar-end mirrors. The fuel tank is a Ducati Scrambler replica, while the tan leather single-piece seat with cowl has been designed in-house. The motorcycle features a dual-tone matte grey & brown paint scheme with a nearly identical 'Ducati Scrambler-style' fuel tank.
While the custom Bajaj Pulsar 180 uses a bored-out 220 cc engine with oil cooling, the power figures are unknown. In the stock form, the 178 cc air-cooled, 2-valve, single-cylinder DTSi motor produces 17 bhp of maximum power and 14.22 Nm of peak torque. The engine works in harmony with a 5-speed gearbox.
