The Bajaj Pulsar 250F was spotted wearing heavy camouflage but hints at a design similar to the erstwhile Pulsar 200 AS. It’s likely to be joined by the Pulsar NS250.
Bajaj Auto is rumoured to be bringing a brand-new 250 cc Pulsar to the market and test mules of the model were also spotted on a number of occasions. The latest spy shot further builds our intrigue in Bajaj’s upcoming offering as images of a semi-faired motorcycle have hit the internet. This could be the upcoming Bajaj Pulsar 250F and could also bring the Pulsar 200 AS (Adventure Sport) design language in a new avatar. The new offering will be positioned between the Pulsar 220F and the Dominar 250. But the big question is if it can replace the Pulsar RS200 that currently sits in the same space.
The spy shot of the camouflaged test mule reveals a tall fly screen, fairing mounted rearview mirrors, semi-fairing connecting the headlamp and the fuel tank, underbelly cowl, split seats, and a stubby exhaust.
The Pulsar 250F could borrow the Dominar 250’s 249 cc mill that is original a KTM 250 Duke unit. It’s been oil cooled for the Bajaj motorcycles. On the Dominar 250, the motor develops 26.5 bhp and 23.5 Nm of peak torque, while paired with a 6-speed gearbox. The power figures could be identical on the Pulsar 250 range when it arrives.
The spy shots also reveal that the bike will get telescopic front forks, a monoshock at the rear, clip-on handlebars, and rear set foot pegs. The riding posture seems aggressive but relaxed intended for long-distance touring.

While there’s no word on the launch timeline yet, it’s likely that Bajaj Auto will bring the Pulsar NS250 and the Pulsar 250F by the end of 2021 or sometime next year. The Pulsar brand holds a strong recall in India and its been a while since we saw something more performance-oriented with this moniker. The company did introduce the Pulsar NS125 earlier this year. More details on the Bajaj Pulsar 250 range will be available in the months to come.
