Recently Asked User Questions

Q. How is Bajaj Pulsar N250 and F250 in long rides?
  • These Bajajs use an air-and-oil-cooled 2-valve, single-cylinder engine that uses 249cc of displacement for its wow quotient. Bajaj says they didn’t use triple-spark tech here as meeting BS6 norms reduces the lean air-fuel mixture combinations which the triple spark setup leveraged. There are no ride modes here either. But it is an all-new engine, sitting 10 degrees from vertical compared to 20 degrees on the P220F. It also has offset crank and bush bearings for the balancer shaft to improve efficiency and refinement. Impressively, the engine makes as much power as the NS200 - and its 21.5Nm of torque is the most we have seen on a Pulsar to date. On the road, the sound, the sensations and the performance are oh-so-220! The sound and feel of the engine have a touch of mechanical rawness. No, it isn’t rough! There’s just a bit of a pulse and roar that makes it feel very Pulsar. As promised the engine has a lot of grunts - which means you can leave it between 3000-4000 rpm for all your city duties. In 4th gear, it will pull from 25kmph easily. Yes, the Pulsar has only five gears but performance isn’t lacking, so if you are planning to do long distances even with a pillion you'll find it lets you relax on the highway as well. Along with the performance, it's the practicality of the Pulsar that has made it so appealing. Its 795m seat height lets 5’6” riders like me put both feet down flat, especially because it feels slim. Moreover, we would suggest you to take a test ride for a better understanding of performance and comfort.

    KTM 250 Duke: Street Performer with a Few Quirks 

    Having owned the KTM 250 Duke for several months now, I am impressed by its urban agility and sporty design. Its lightweight frame at just 169 kg, enhances its maneuverability makes it a lot of fun to ride.The bike's suspension system absorbs bumps well, ensuring a smooth ride on most urban surfaces. Additionally, the mileage around 30 to 35 km/l is reasonable for city commutes. I appreciate the sharp, responsive brakes but the absence of cornering ABS has been a slight concern on wet roads.

    Good bike for city use 

    It is a fun sporty bike and is a lighter bike and the seat height is very good but it gives high vibration and the engine refinement is not that good. It gives enough space and the suspension is good but not the best and on the bad road it is not very comfortable. The handling of this bike is decent and the braking performance is actually quite nice and is a very great bike for the city and the mileage is around 35 kmpl and thel look of this bike is really nice.
