Editorial Review of the Bajaj Pulsar 220 bike

The Bajaj Pulsar has been one of the legendary motorcycles Indian soil has ever witnessed. Back in 2001, the original Pulsar created an all new creed of 150cc and 180cc motorcycle lovers, due to its beefy appearance and raw power. The motorcycle, still carrying much of the silhoutte of the original version, continues to set the sales chart on fire even after being too long in the tooth. It was, and still for many people, is a door to upper performance segments, without sacrificing on the traits of usability and fuel efficiency. The year 2007 saw a big leap in Pulsar series with the introduction of 220F, which was ahead of its times with many technologies, the fuel injection being one of them. The present generation of Pulsar 220F is still going strong owing to its value for money package.
In the present form, one particular thing which still exists even after so many years is the big and chiseled fuel tank, with a crease running in the middle of it to provide a comfortable contour for your knees. The front, though, is bigger than the smaller Pulsars, and has semi fairing with twin projectors stacked in vertical layout, flanked with pilot lamps on both the top ends. The rear body panels are pointed upwards, incorporating a set of vertically stacked LED tail lamps within it. Overall design is now a bit dated if compared to the its other present day rivals, but still carries the butch stance needed for a bike of this segment. The Pulsar 220 was the first 'Made-in-India' to feature a combination of a digital-analog instrument panel, and still carries on the same unit, which includes a digital LCD showcasing a digital speedometer, fuel gauge, odometer and trip meter, coupled up with an analog tachometer. It comes with split pillion grab rails and open chain cover to add some extra naked appearance to the overall profile. The clip on handlebars look great and are an evolution over the previous generation model with black treatment to it, which goes the same for the engine and alloy wheels too. The fit and finish of the motorcycle is decent but do not match that of typical Honda and Yamaha machines.
The Pulsar has always been known as a tractable machine, which has enough power on offer to quench your appetite of performance. To start with, the motorcycle still carries the same 220cc motor of that of its previous generation model, though with some minor as well as major tweaks, and is now able to deliver the maximum power and torque ratings of 21.05 PS and 19.12 Nm respectively. The engine may have a gruff note on its operation and refinement levels may not be on par with its rivals from Honda and Yamaha, but the power delivery is punchy enough to give the rider oodles of confidence. Once tagged as 'the fastest Indian', the mid-range performance of Pulsar 220F is brilliant enough to be equally confident in both city commuting and highway jaunts. The torque is in abundance, which makes it an ideal tool for those long highway jaunts.
The ride quality is where the Pulsar 220F still manages to outshine many motorcycles available out there. The suspension setup of telescopic front forks and gas charged rear springs give out a stress free plush ride, even over some big bumps. It is this aspect of the motorcycle which has undercut every other competition of it. Though the front end is a bit heavy, but handling this 220cc bike from Bajaj is not that ponderous amidst the city traffic. Braking is also on a better side, and the rear disc helps the matters a lot. Overall, at the end of the day, it manages to bring a smile on your face, rather than sweat on your forehead, owing to its comfort and ride factors.
To sum it up, Bajaj Pulsar 220F can be billed as a premium motorcycle which accomplishes the daily commuting from point A to point B with a quicker pace and comfort as compared to basic commuters positioned below it, without sacrificing much on the fronts of fuel efficiency and maintenance. Its a trustful machine which has made a rock solid reputation in its run for more than one and a half decade, and it is still going strong, even after facing such a stiff competition from its modern day rivals which are far better equipped than it, one of them is its very own new sibling – the Pulsar NS200.
