Bajaj Pulsar 220 DTS-i 86,699

The Bajaj Pulsar 220 DTSi was Bajaj Auto’s flagship motorcycle until the arrival of the 200NS. Powered by a 219cc engine, it is pegged as a sports tourer. The high-torque nature of its engine, combined with the tall-ratio five-speed gearbox, makes it easy for high speed cruising and effortless overtaking on highways. The 220 comes with features such as projector headlights, LED tail-lights, digital/analogue console, gas-charged rear shock absorbers, front and rear disc brakes with steel-braided lines, electric start, split seat, and self-cancelling indicators as standard.

Mileage, Price & Colours

The Pulsar 220 DTSi delivers a SIAM-rated mileage of 56.5 kmpl It  is priced at Rs 82,023 (ex-showroom, Delhi), and is available in Ebony Black, Pearl Metallic White, Sapphire Blue & Cocktail wine red.

Design and Ergonomics

Positioned as a sports tourer, the Pulsar 220’s design follows a “macho” theme, with a big sculpted fuel tank, aerodynamic half-fairing and sharply styled tail section. The ergonomics of the bike seat the rider upright, with a wide handle bar and mid-set foot pegs that offer a relaxed riding experience.

Engine & Transmission

The bike is powered by a 219cc air/oil-cooled single cylinder twin-spark engine that produces 21 bhp and 19 Nm torque, and is mated to a five-speed gearbox.


It is equipped with telescopic front forks and a pair of gas-charged shock absorbers at the rear. Although they use hydraulic fluid, gas-charged shock absorbers are better than pure-hydraulic units, as they improve the damping characteristics by reducing the build-up of air-bubbles in the fluid, helping to retain its optimum viscosity.


It employs a 260mm disc brake at the front, and a 230mm disc brake at the rear. The brake calipers are connected to the master cylinders by steel braided lines, which offer better performance compared to conventional rubber brake lines.

Who should buy one?

People who want a powerful bike that can be used for both regular commute, as well as leisure rides on the highway should consider the Bajaj Pulsar 220 DTSi.
