Does anyone else think its looking very 'insect' like? Its not as meaty as the FZ bikes are and the proportions are a bit weird. Looks more like the KTM 200 about to be launched in India.
They might do better if they launch it under a new brand name. It does not go with the Pulsar design language.

24 hours to go for the 2012 Pulsar unveiling !! Wonder why did they not do it at the Auto Expo instead :

Its official.

Bajaj's official site is also showing the countdown. Just 0 days, 17 hours and 3mins as I post.

New Bajaj Pulsar 2012 | Pulsar Official Website

Rumours suggest there would be 2 variants. Both based on KTM engines (Rebored version of Duke 125 and 200 engines).

Why would they put another bike of the same capacity that might hurt the sales of the KTM? I think it probably will be more touring oriented than roadster (KTM 200) , KTM derived engines should be amazing though!

Pulsar will be the VFM offering, and should bring in the numbers for Bajaj. Even if the power figures are matched, I dont think Pulsar will be as light weight as KTM (to keep costs down), and hence the power to weight figures will be a lot different.

With KTM priced at 1.18 ex showroom, i expect the flagship Pulsar to be launched at less than 90k ex-showroom.

EDIT: Your Monster is in India? Cool display pic!

Should be around 4pm as the timer still has around 2 hours and 32 mins left on the clock!

I hope they have a naked and one with fairing (semi fairing will be fine as long as its properly designed).

Woah! I liked the design. But I really wish they have a full fairing version of the same

Zigwheels are also covering the event, but they havent put up any snaps as yet.

Page's loading very very slow. This is obviously generated a whole lot of interested in (ex-)bikers. Priced right (and BAL usually does that), it'll be a real threat to the competition.

Someone please post the pics here.

Edit : It loaded - looks very very nice!

My gut feel is, that this bike will not match the power figures of the Duke 200 to appease the 'Kitna mileage hai' attitude of our country. It will surely be priced below 1Lac to make it a killer offering. It would be fun to see, which one will have more bookings? KTM or Pulsar.

I wonder why they are launching two bikes togeather? They could have timed it to make most out of the hype.

Waiting for the launch.
