I believe the price would be around 100k for sure cause of the goodies you get with it..
bigger engine
rear disk = + cost
oil cooler = + cost
n all the other parts

I doubt Bajaj will price it at a lakh. Its really not worth that much!

- Bigger engine: But still based on the same Pulsar 180 DTSi engine. Same crankcase and gearbox as well it seems. FI is new.
- Chassis: Larger forks and swingarm seem the only real difference. Still using the standard Pulsar twin shocks.
- Brakes: Larger front disc and new rear disc.
- Fairings: Tank is the same. Minor changes in rear panels. Front fairing is different, but thats not a major cost for sure.

Looking at that, I see no reason why the bike should be priced at 1 Lakh. that is a ridiculous price when you think the Comet (Vtwin, 250cc, much larger) was being sold at just 80K more, AND that was an import.

The bajaj pulsar 250 will be priced below 1 lakh. Thats for sure. I saw a interview with rahul bajaj and i think he said they will price it(atleast try to) below 1 lakh. but he didnt sound optimistic.

there was a special coverage for the bike on aajtak yesterday did anyone saw that?? it concluded that bajaj is delaying the launch as they are not able to decide a price for it.

CNBC had a small segment on the F1, on July 8th. Usual teaser with no confirmation by Bajaj. Looks like this pricing issue is really worrying Bajaj.
Either way, we bikers wait.......and wait........and wait!!!!!!

Hey Guys,

I saw the review of this bike on NDTV yesterday. they said the expected price of the bike would be around Rs75000-100000. Since it has FI, the mileage is about 50KMPL. Great mileage for a 225cc bike, isnt it?
