Since the Bajaj Pulsar 220 obviously breaks the mould, I I should as well. So, notice the shot. It is not an on-bike-scene, not a what-happened-at-the-shoot, not a and neither is it the most common of all we-have-been-waiting-for either.

So far so good, eh?

exactly a year after we saw the in Delhi, we finally logged real-world saddle time on the And it feels good. But not that The first time I went a corner, though, I discovered While I am yet to ascertain exactly how the manages this, it feels than it is.

Which means you go through a corner and classify it as a 63 kph you actually just blazed at roughly 88 kph (digital speedo, heh

It’s a strange feeling. you blow past 110 kph or so, you don’t feel the speed of the DTS-Fi. that, the wind blast you know how fast you really are

Of course, in light traffic, you do that many machines get behind a little too quickly and a too easily.

Perhaps the biggest reason is this is the most refined of all the so far. It still isn’t like a Karizma (I’m not but it is completely without any peg or bar vibes, has no except just before the red on the dash enforces a gearshift. It like a Pulsar familiar.

At I thought it was a bit louder than the or the 150, but that’s about the audible difference.

Visually, the break from the past is the half-fairing. Unfortunately, almost who approached us with a query they weren’t the most motorcyclists we’ve ever first thought the fairing was a mod and only later grasped they were looking at biggest bike yet.

eyebrows, however, rose as we rattled off the long list of and features in a faintly bragging of voice. But it did bring up a few interesting For instance, one chap pointed out if the tyres had a different tread, more people would that they weren’t fatter, but tubeless as well.

pointed out, and I agree with this, that it too much like a smaller with a fairing and a 220 sticker. I I’m a little disappointed two of the biggest visual treats, the dash and the LED tail lamps, first on other Pulsars, than on this one. everyone was clear that certain angles, the bike great.

Everyone thought it looked Which, truth be told, the is.

I already told you that on its the 220 belies its own actual speed. is why the outstanding feature on the motorcycle, for me, is the package. This isn’t that its performance isn’t but that the handling, ride and braking leave a big impression.

the extended wheelbase, the bike very good in corners and all the Pulsars, this one feels the neutral and the most natural.

It basically race off leaving else on sale in the country now in its wake. Find a fast road and prepare to totally the P220. and there is little any Indian machine can do. The 220 tells you is going on, does what you it to do and is just amazing. Especially when the sensation of velocity into its own.

Flowing downhill sections are pleasure.

Thankfully, it sheds with the same confidence and and braking hard-hard-hard even on or mildly distressed (Levi’s surfaces will not generate any moments. One should not forget the quality either. This too is flattering. It approaches a gliding quality, but returns feedback.

you suddenly find a bump the apex, you don’t have to off at all.

Our test bike did one niggle though. Look at the picture closely and you will how close to the ground the center is. It decked out repeatedly, constantly and way before the feeler bolts had a at it. Raising the preload to full the instance but did not cure the problem.

I am that the issue has already taken care of.

Now to the engine. As I said, it doesn’t feel as as it is. Performance aside, I’ve you already that refinement are up high.

Gearshifts are as light as a great neutral is as easy to find as in the middle of the road and the clutch is as progressive as Sweden.

On the move, the 220 is to 60 kph (4.38 seconds), great to 100 kph and will hit 120 kph without breaking the proverbial sweat. There is speed to come, but it needs a lot of and time. Fuel economy is great too. It only below 40 kpl once, and steady 60 kph will return a ludicrous 48

Amazing, eh?

For those who came in and then were … in a room, blindfolded, gagged and up, here is a short, staccato of features: digital dash two trips, two stage dash low fuel-cum-rev limiter light; tubeless tyres; powerful low beam; LED tail lamp; seat (mysteriously, the seat is not a key, you have to take off a panel and yank on a loop of fuel injection (marvellous response and feel); elliptical swingarm; O-ring chain; disc (Josh thought it drum-ish, which I like hate to have a disc-sharp brake); no kick start oil cooler; self-cancelling indicators take a bit of getting used engine kill switch brown?); cool folding maintenance-free battery. it’s a long list.

All of this means that the Pulsar 220 DTS-Fi is an impressive But we were truly gobsmacked Bajaj unveiled the price. The is just Rs 84,000 on-road which means roughly Rs on-road Mumbai.

EMR will that this is roughly the we estimated back in August, means a hell of a lot of motorcycle for the

I can see the motorcycle being a great for long rides, slow or Its 4500 rpm composure at 70 kph is as great as the of urgency when booming at 110 kph. It’s unexpectedly effortlessly fast and feels natural. In short, I think it a shift in the way we look at Indian

The DTS-Fi also introduces a bunch of features we haven’t on our bikes yet, and uses all of them to great effect (as to having been added for rights). We’re still cross about how long taken to come out since its Expo reveal, but the bike (finally) be appearing at Probiking around India in short Withdraw those savings, and line up.

Ah, yes the lead shot. Well, it pear shaped immediately Josh leapt clear, the went down with an thump. We were all horrified.

But the DTSFi came through flying colours no serious at all.
