Bajaj Pulsar N250 Review : 8 Pros & 7 Cons

The Pulsar N250 houses a fuel tank with a capacity of 14 litres which is decent. Coupled with a fuel efficiency of ~35-40 km/l depending on city and highway usage, one can expect an impressive tank range of around 500 km on a single tank of fuel.

Bajaj Pulsar N250 Pros

  • Well-rounded, good-looking sporty commuter package packed with features and practicality
  • Nicely priced. Undercuts most rivals in the segment
  • Addresses almost all the weak points of its predecessor, while still retaining the solid fundamentals such as the engine and chassis characteristics
  • Packed with features such as slip-and-assist clutch, upside-down fork suspension, digital instrument cluster, turn-by-turn navigation, LED projector headlight, switchable traction control, ABS modes, integrated USB charger, etc.
  • Tractable engine with oodles of low-end torque coupled with good gearing and very light clutch makes riding effortless and adaptable to varied usage
  • Refined engine with NVH levels rivaling Japanese 250cc commuters
  • Deep and bassy exhaust note
  • Mature suspension behaviour offers a nice balance between ride quality and handling

Bajaj Pulsar N250 Cons

  • Front brake feels wooden and lacks progressive feedback. Rear brakes are devoid of any bite
  • Some quirks in the ergonomics department, including placement of rear view mirrors, handlebar & side-stand lever
  • Windblast and buffeting even at moderate speeds
  • Sporty only within urban confines. Not very composed at highway speeds or during fast cornering
  • 2-valve engine runs out of breath with climbing revs. Lack of sixth gear reduces the fun factor on highway rides
  • Quality of plastics and decals, although better than before, has room for improvement
  • Bajaj bikes are not known to age very well and it remains to be seen how long-lasting the refinement levels and plastic quality will prove to be over a few years of usage
