Seems like Bajaj finally realized its motorcycles, however brilliant they are otherwise, can no longer afford to be bare bones in terms of electronic wizardry. That’s exactly the issue it’s working on these days with its updated motorcycles. The Pulsar N250 too, has been upgraded, and it’s not just limited to electronic wizardry, mind you.

The Bajaj Pulsar N250 gets 37 mm golden USD forks and wider tyres

The first thing you will notice are updated decals, and the presence of 37 mm golden USD forks. However, these forks are finished in black if you buy the N250 in the all-black paint scheme. Either way, the N250 becomes one of the few motorcycles to offer USD forks in its category, the KTM 250 Duke being the other one. A set of non-enthusiast eyes may also miss that it gets 10 mm wider tyres on both ends; 110/70-17 on the front and 140/70-17 at the rear.

In terms of equipment, the Pulsar N250 offers a new digital instrument cluster, which now allows smartphone connectivity via bluetooth, along with turn-by-turn navigation, calls and SMS alerts. It even allows you to accept or reject calls as well. That’s not all though; the N250 also offers traction control and three ABS modes; rain, road and off-road. Interestingly, traction control can only be disengaged in off-road ABS mode. Curiosity certainly has risen!

The 249 cc single-cylinder mill hasn’t been tampered with

The 249 cc single-cylinder mill hasn’t been tampered with, as it continues to churn out 24.16 bhp at 8750 rpm and 2.19 kgm of torque at 6500 rpm. It also retains the five-speed gearbox with a slip-and-assist clutch as standard fitment.

Does the Bajaj Pulsar N250 now make a compelling case for itself?
