Bajaj Pulsar N250 launched at Rs 1.51 lakh

New Delhi, April 10, 2024.

The biggest visual change on the 2024 Pulsar N250 is the 37mm USD fork, which is the same diameter as the older bike’s telescopic unit. The bike also comes in three colours now – White, Red and Black. The white and red colour options come with a golden USD fork and get silver finishes on the engine casing as well as exhaust muffler, while on the black colourway, all the components get a blacked-out treatment. One of our quibbles with the N250 was that it came in only one colour in its top dual-channel ABS spec, and its nice to see a diverse palette of colours to choose from now. 

Bajaj has also given the Pulsar N250 a new LCD display (same as the one found on the N150 & N160), and with it comes Bluetooth connectivity and the ability to receive notification alerts, calls and navigation prompts. Switchgear too has been revised to enable the rider to control all these functions baked into the new dash. 

Where the N250 one-ups the smaller Pulsars is in the addition of ABS modes of which there are three – Rain, Road and Off-road. Incidentally, toggling between the modes only changes the ABS sensitivity and it can never be switched off entirely. Traction control, however, can be turned off fully in Off-road mode. 

The updated Bajaj Pulsar N250 also gets wider tyres now – 110/70-17 (front) and 140/70-17 (rear) – which is an increase of 10mm at both ends. Weight has also gone up by 2kg and the Pulsar N250 now weighs 164kg, with the 14-litre tank brimmed. The familiar air/oil-cooled, 249cc, single-cylinder mill is rated for the same 24.5hp at 8,750rpm and 21.5Nm at 6,500rpm. 

Considering the magnitude of changes that have taken place here, the nominal Rs 829 price hike on the 2024 Bajaj Pulsar N250 seems very digestible. Our first ride review of the updated model will drop soon, so keep your eyes peeled for that.
