Bajaj Pulsar 220 DTS-i – review

Date of Review: 2nd 2011.

Type of Review: Full Review.

Manufacturer/Model: Pulsar 220F DTS-i.

1. Engine, Refinement Noise:

The 220 DTS-i, true to its name, a 220cc, single cylinder, engine developing a peak output of 21.04PS @ 8500rpm and a torque of 19.12Nm @ 7000rpm. up the engine sounds typically with the starter motor the engine a bit longer than The auto-choke works beautifully to the engine to life which idles steadily at 1,400

Slotting it into the first immediately transmits a positive and with a slightly heavy the bike pulls forward an urgency befitting its cubic Shifting up the gears, you realize the of attention Bajaj has given to the of customers all around, with the model’s gearbox definitely than previous generations. The band kicks in about rpm and goes unrelenting all the way to its red line.

The low-end may not be as exciting as you’d be for, but the mid-range more makes up for it.

At a calm, city of 50 kmph, the engine’s characteristic goes missing, replaced by a steady hum and noticeable fairing Close the throttle and immediately it open, carburettor lag makes apparent. Refinement is not Bajaj’s yet we will have to concede improvements are showing, with the generation Pulsars outdoing predecessors. Performance, however, is this bike is all about.

She the tag “The Fastest Indian,” and as far as motorcycles are concerned, she definitely is in a straight-line. The biggest bore that you get makes it very from its siblings, yet staying to the family traits.

2. Looks

The Pulsar 220 comes in two variants, and 220S. Let’s get one thing right away. The only element of the 220F is the quarter The muscular and taut tank, the and rear panels and the tail are now generic to the Pulsar range.

But that quarter fairing makes the 220F stand out the crowd. Viewed head-on, the stacked projector and parabolic headlights, the pilot lamps and the air vents in the fairing all come to give you an impression of a crouching that’s ready to pounce. The mirrors look more its ears, standing up on alert.

a sense of purpose to the front end other Pulsars in the range quite pull off.

back, the chunky brushed exhaust adds to the poise and separates the 220 from her siblings. The all styling further goes a way in enhancing the menacing poise the imparts.

On the move, among the things to strike you would be the front. The riding posture, not extremely sporty, isn’t either. The slightly forward is very useful at highway where it puts the rider in control of the bike.

We’d say it’s a good and an overall commanding position is useful for the front heavy of the bike. Compared to her previous the fuel injected 220, you can the rake pulled in, and as a result you you’ve hit a taller than speed breaker rather climbed onto it. This has its uses elsewhere, as pointed out

3. Value For Money:

At 87,312 INR OTR the Pulsar 220F is shattering for money. It takes you from A to point B in as much style and as you’d need in Indian However, in true Pulsar-ish small niggles here and do crop up but it also helps in the rider involved with

Bajaj has priced the spares than the competition and that’s a big towards ownership stakes. The required depends mostly on personal riding habits, and the 220 doesn’t shy of throwing tantrums at that do not take good of her. The spares last thus coupled with low price, it doesn’t cost to keep her going.

The brand image of Bajaj ensures you get a good resale for the bike since there is a demand for them. Overall, say it’s a fantastic value for

4. Accessories Goodies:

The Pulsar 220 set the when it came to the number of offered on a motorcycle, which was emulated by other manufacturers. Top of its of USP is the projector headlamp setup, is one of the best stock headlights

With clip-ons, digital console, backlit switchgear, stand indicator, self-cancelling indicators, magnetic contact sensors for the switches, LED tail over-revving warning via a flashing red LED doubles as a reserve indicator, brake setup at the front and the with steel braided for the front brake,  full DC with headlights that off automatically when cranking the and then turn back on, low level and low engine oil level tubeless tyres on strong, alloys, the Pulsar 220 is loaded tech and goodies to make ride a more pleasurable Thumbs up to Bajaj.

5. Handling Braking:

Throughout the Bajaj Pulsars were for a lot of things, but being an agile and handler was never one of them. came under a lot of criticism for the iteration 220’s soft and the improvements show up in the new 220F the corners. The bike feels stable now and lets you concentrate on line than keeping her With the rake having pulled in, it’s much to dive into corners

That said, however, it remains quite some from the handling capabilities of its

Employing disc brakes at ends ensure the bike to a quick halt under braking. The nose dive has also been resolved to an extent over the older and we did not experience a nose dive should be a cause of concern. The braided brake line good feedback and requires less effort as a result of it is at shedding speed quickly.

A well rounded set of brakes for the Indian”.
