Well, you still don't see anyone selling a Baleno 1.1, 1.2, 1.3, 1.6 all together, do you?
Well the first twins were launched 3-4 years back , you can think they just upddated them and re-released .
Well they have huge resource and manpower to think and do the analysis to either elimated/replace the 150 segments ,they cannot be worng in whatever they are doing , if they were they wouldnt have captured the significant market share ..they are now into scooters also !
When toyota stopped qualis everyone was shocked ! ..... lets sit back and enjoy the competition.

Kick start doesnt have anything to do with FI or carburetion. Btw, the Pulsar 200 doesnt come with FI. Its carburetted. And yes, HH FI bike does come with kickstart.

Bajaj is trying hard for Pulsar 200 and 220 to feel like a sportsbike. Thats why no kickstart.
On a big multi cylinder engine, a kickstart would be a big pain, but on a small single, I dont think an option of kickstart should be a big problem. Its purely a design issue for Bajaj.

well it does has something to do with FI....on a low tech systems the current produced by the kick start is not enough to crank the Fi engine...maybe Hero Honda is borrowing technology from Honda ...they have developed a method to crank FI engines with the kick start...read more on this page...Honda Worldwide | World News | News Release | October 3, 2003

but if puslar 200 is carburetted they cant think of a reason why they havent included the kick start...maybe they plan to offer a FI version later.

Its Not fuel injected, just to give u a big bike feel..


Dont Bullets, have kick starters, they displace higher volumes than dez bikes...

It could be because the amount of back kick that this engine will generate or may be because its fuel injected. I dont think Bajaj has forgotten to put a kick in the making of this bike

what do u do in case of a car.

P200 DTSi is not fuel injected...

Although bullet displaces 350cc, i dont think the compression ratio of the engine is not that much... Also, bullets have a reputation for giving aching ankles, if an inexperienced person kicks it...

@ Wacky...P200 is only available in the Pro-Biking Showrooms. It's already available in Vashi.
