Hmm .... i see LED brake lights on the blue & silver (225cc??) bike there. So can we expect to see them soon on our road bikes or will they remain a concept ....

the 125cc looks pretty neat in yellow..! can't say the same about the 225 front quarter panel. the fairing looks okay, but fit and finish seems average, and the styling feels gawky- menacingly, though. when it comes to front-faired bikes, the zma takes the cake; in fact, i feel it is better than this particular bajaj (not being partial here; just stating what i felt)....

but that console of the 225cc bajaj seems HOT...has a SBK cut to it; the speedo console looks ABSOLUTELY smashing...! dunno about others, but i feel that bajaj (well, pricol actually) makes some of the BEST consoles ever- loved the pulsar's console, and the 225 has got my attention...wonder if that can be retro'ed to the ZMA.....

Great effort by Bajaj. Hope the EFI makes it into production. I have a feeling it will end up being a carb to save cost. Looks like its the same chassis as the 150, the fairing is overdone IMO, too much going on. Looks like a small kid wearing an XXL helmet. They should've worked on a monoshock instead of rear disc. LED lights andlook good and so does the carbon-look can,and please.... no center stand on sport bikes.

There is an oil cooler, look closely.

how good the bike maybe doesnt matter as long as bajaj doesnt change the looks.

I hoped to see some real new design.

That's a very good effort there by the Bajaj people it is the next step for the two wheeler industry in India and a bigger step for the Indians (LOL).

Keep it up Bajaj!

Redline at 9k RPMs????????????

Nice console, though I agree that the front looks highly overdone. They should offer one with old-Pulsar like headlamps and a monoshock...

21bhp from one cylinder is pretty damn good.

i dont think all of the features featured in the 250 DTS-Fi will make it into production. A price tag of 1 lakh will be taking into consideration all the features that the show (or concept) bike had. Obviously they would take feedback from the public and the end product will be priced close to 85-90k.
  • Projector lamps (The top headlight seems to be just a halogen bulb). No idea if the lower one is a xenon one. A front pic would help.
  • The handlebar looks too wide. Shouldn't they have been a bit narrower and a bit lower??
  • The front forks are a new design. They also look fatter than the current ones.
Exclusion of features (or make them optional) which could reduce the price :
Projector headlamps
Rear disc brakes (optional). Instead could have a larger drum.
Get an unfaired version.

This should be fun.
