Bajaj to launch 2012 Pulsar this month!
Mr. Rajiv Bajaj, MD, Bajaj Auto today announced to the media, the scheduled launch of the 2012 Bajaj Pulsar, which will be done in Mumbai on the 30th of this month.
While he refused to divulge any more information regarding it, there was hint that some of the bits which had gone into the development of the KTM 200 Duke, could possibly make their way into the new Pulsars, especially since the R&D team which worked on the KTM 200 Duke is pretty much the same as the one working on the Pulsar lineup.
Add to this, in one of the slides at the press launch of KTM 200 Duke, Bajaj Pulsar 200 was shown as one of the motorcycles in the premium bike segment, while it might just be a presentation error; rumors are abuzz that Bajaj could possibly bring back the Pulsar 200 with engine bits meant for the 200 Duke!
Of course, everything would be clear in a matter of days and we will know, what Bajaj has planned for customers of Bajaj Pulsar in 2012, especially since it was announced that Pro Biking Showrooms will now be converted to KTM Showrooms and Pulsar and Avenger would no longer be sold at the Pro Biking Showrooms.
