As per speculations, Bajaj is planning to launch new versions of the Pulsar 125, 150, 180, and 220F very soon. The manufacturer could update them to the same platform as the N250 and F250, which would be a welcome change. Also, Bajaj is looking towards the adventure motorcycle segment, which means that the ‘Pulsar AS’ monicker could return in the near future.
