S o you are in the market to buy the performance bike. there many options for you to choose Its bang on, either

the yamaha R15 or the pulsar 220 DTS Fi. Bajaj realised yamaha had really eaten up on tail in the sales chart

with a rs. 1Lakh plus and decided to fight it back own way. Thats how the 2009 220 DTSi was born. you may wonder

the new pulsar loosing the Fi letters its name tag. It is true the new now makes do without a fuel system and in

its place is a 32 venturi CV carburettor. so can bike really hold a to the yamaha’s performance and can it prove

at the place where it matters the “SALES”. we present the first test report between most wanted performance


thing that catches attention on the new pulsar 220 is the all black Although now common with all of the bajaj bikes

this is the time it is appearing on the pulsar and it really adds up to the sporty of the bike. Once seated on the you are greeted

by a nice looking display with a new carbon tacho.

Other than the “F” logo on either side of the semi fairings and golden

brake calipers, rest of the remains unchanged. One fine about the pulsars switch are that they are back and it is a very nice touch I admit.

On the other hand, the R 15 looks more like a down R1. The full fairing twin head lights it a supersports look. Although the feels a tad tiny compared to bikes, it is sleek for the job it does.

The R15 also has the best looking speedo in the market, the well tachometer and the tell tale are easy to read and have a blue back lighting.


Sit on the Yamaha R15 and you feel the need for speed. is the seating position, low and lean. The clip on handle bars and rear set foot rest the R15 the most sportiest riding ever. The R15 is the first and only motorcycle to come out with a spar steel frame and a link rear suspension.

The is a twin telescopic unit, is usual on most Indian The suspension is set a little soft in mind the Indian road but the overall geometry of the chasis has tuned to offer best in handling. Around a race the R15 can not be touched in the handling department.

in is razor sharp and so is the mid corner The bike feels extremely and safe around a fast On the road too the R15 feels at home, for the crouched seating position, takes people some to get used to.

Things are now a little with the new pulsar 220. bajaj bike has never know for its handling prowess. due to the soft shock absorbers and a geometry which is more compared to the sporty R15. To all this, the bajaj engineers made the front shocks a stiffer, by changing the valves the telescopic forks.

This change really its presence felt when u that strong front brake and haul the bike from crazy speeds. The pulsar had a problem of excessive under braking, which is non existent in the 2009 model. But has taken a toll on the ride as the stiffer shock absorbers really cushion the road as well as the older pulsar.

The comes with the same tyres, although now with a compound rubber that increase the grip levels. all these modifications have the pulsars handling, it can never with the R15 on a race track or a twisty ghat road. The handling is simply light ahead of the pulsars.

Both the come with a front as as rear disc brakes. the new pulsar now comes with a braided front brake hose which reduces flex and gives a sharp as as direct feel to the braking.


The R15’s cylinder 149.8cc engine is to the brim with pure Liquid cooling, 4 valve fuel injection, diasil engine cylinder, forged and what not. But the engine develops only 17ps of and 15nm of torque much than expected. The engine is to a 6 speed gearbox, which is spaced and has a nice actuation to it.

Once on the move the R15’s can be felt only after or so, such is the engines tuning and it makes power only at rpm’s. low rpm pull is decent but not enough to poter around or for stop go traffic.

On a slight the pulsar 220 has a air and oil cooled single engine. Fuel injection has scraped and is replaced with a developed UCAL UCD 32 size in other words the largest ever to be used on an Indian in addition to this, other like graphite coated to reduce friction, high camshaft, bigger exhaust has helped increase the output of the to 21.04ps with torque the same 19.12 nm.

To improve the system bajaj has also the size of the oil cooler by about Now all this translates to unadulterated on the road. Touch the throttle and the revs like nobody’s the amount of thrust in the midrange every other bike to Pin the throttle at about 3000rpm and iam not the P220 surges ahead a mini superbike.

In 0 to 100kmph the P220 is the quickest in the infact 100 kmph comes up on the digital speedo much often. The 5 speed gearbox a bit notchy compared to the R15 with 1 or 2 in between, but we think the gearbox set in properly once it piles on miles. The 5th gear ratio has made taller to increase top and aid cruisability. So out on the highway the bike cruises at 110 kmph or even without much stress.

We a speedometer displayed top speed of with more rpm left. so we can assume the real speed to be than 135kmph, which is the in the country. But only gripe the engine is the amount of vibration it Right from the lower the bike starts vibrating a mainly surfacing through the fairing and handle bars, but it is not that you cant live

Other than this the is a real beauty. The performance leaves the R15 in dust.


People buying a bike this segment usually give a second look at the efficiency figure of these but still both the bikes easily manage to give 35kmpl with the R15 slightly due to the fuel injection system. So to cut it all and simple, the R15 costs 1,07,XXX rs. as the Pulsar 220 costs 79,XXXrs OTR Chennai almost 30,000rs of

The R15 may have a better technology in the of liquid cooling and fuel system and better handling to justify the 1lakh rs plus tag, but the pulsar with all the bells and whistles and actually performance than the Yamaha it flat on the power to money All said if I were in the market to get a bike I would close my and head to the bajaj showrooms.
