If they offer this design at the current price point without any premiums, I am sure they'll sell in trucks. People have loved the FZ-s for their sporty designs and they are gonna love the pulsar more since it has the KTM engine.

Loving every bit of the bike in this pic. Many would disagree but i feel Pulsar is gonna be revolutionary (if everything they offer is as good as the design)

Looks like a photo-shop job of the KTM Duke to me

It's a bad attempt at PSing the KTM Duke.

No!

Thats a photoshopped version of KTM Duke 125.

Looks quite similar to the prototype in the link above.
True!

Except for a lot of frills removed for the production version (for eg: fancy swingarm), this one seems to have a lot of design similarities with the one in the spy pics.

i can see a lot of similarities between this picture and the spy shots in the above pics, namely the fuel tank design and the tail section.

If i am not mistaken, this is a KTM Duke, which will be released in india at the end of 2011 by Bajaj Auto. Who owns approx 30%+ of KTM. the engine capaity is rumored to be 200 c.c.

This info was sourced from Autocar India Nov. 2011 edition.

Some other featured mentioned were:
1) Liquid cooling
2) Fuel Injection
3) 4 Valves
4) A Trellis Frame.

Price is expected between 1.2-1.5 lakhs.

Rejoyce Bike lovers!!

Pre bike speculations and rumors are something that should be completely ignored IMO.
We know the KTM, and its few days from now when we will see the new Pulsar.

Till then its wait and watch policy.

Why ignored? This is a democratic forum and each one is entitled to their own opinions. And the speculations/rumors is what keeps the excitement going as we all know Bajaj and KTM products are set to shake up the market (another speculation)

2012 All New Bajaj Pulsar Spied Again | MotorBeam - Indian Car Bike News & Reviews

With the KTM Duke 200 confirmed (unofficially ofcourse) to have a 1.25L price tag, Pulsar flagship may come in around 1L or less!

I personally dont feel that Pulsar flagship will be around 1L unless they add some extras like taking the cc's a level further to 250, full front faring and FI. They should have designed a sports edition by now.

However, from the spy pics - its pretty clear they are running on the Duke engine block, and not the good old Bajaj DTSi engine.

[SVI] What model of Duke are you planning to launch? Is it the 200?

[RB] Yes. We'll first launch the Duke 200 here. It is an awesome bike and it will shake up the market

[SVI] What is its power output? Should I sell my Honda CBR?

[RB] The bike produces close to 25 BHP. It is an awesome bike and it will beat CBR in all aspects. CBR is a pretty heavy bike close to 163 kgs. Duke 200 is close to 139 kgs. So, you can expect much higher power-to-weight ratio. You should probably shift

There is probably a reason why KTM's haven't caught the fancy of bike buying populace world wide.

KTM being faster than the CBR-250R? Might, but then it would be parked alongside the N-250R, so where does all this end at? And how faster?
50cc deficit might make its appearance while cruising

Guys!! did any one of you come across this web page for 2012 Bajaj Pulsar

New 2012 Bajaj Pulsar spied with never-seen-before details, in an ICB Exclusive! | IndianCarsBikes.in

Looks like new Pulsar shares a lot of things in common with Duke.

I'm thinking of replacing my aged Unicorn with the RTR 180 ABS but going through this thread made me rethink on replacing my bike now and wait until some of the 2012 bikes are out (especially the pulsar 180 or the KTM). Hopefully they will be equipped with ABS.
