Bajaj Pulsar 220 ended up topping the table with domestic sales of 5,645 units in November 2019 and it finished ahead of Duke 250 and Avenger 220
The quarter-litre motorcycle segment is increasingly getting crowded due to the positive spending capabilities of the buyers in the last few years. The brands have certainly capitalised on the rush and resultantly we have seen new launches come pouring in and here is the sales list of the bikes between 200 and 250 cc capacities.
The Pulsar 220 has lived up to the popular brand name and it has been available on sale for several years. Despite less in the way of updates, the aggressive price tag has caught the attention of the customers and consequently, it remained on top as 5,645 units were sold in November 2019 as against 6,933 units with 19 per cent YoY sales de-growth.
The Duke 250 is positioned between the bigger Duke 390 and Duke 200. It costs around Rs. 1.94 lakh (ex-showroom) for the dual-channel ABS variant introduced earlier this year. The naked streetfighter garnered a total of 456 units last month and is powered by a 250 cc, single-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine producing 30 horsepower and 24 Nm of torque.
