Design wise there hasn’t been many changes but the new bike comes with a ton of features

2024 Bajaj Pulsar N250 vs Old Pulsar N250

Bajaj Auto had recently launched the new and updated Pulsar N250 at a price Rs 1,50,829 (ex-showroom Delhi), and with this update the bike has undergone a massive upgrade in terms of underpinnings and features. The bike now comes with a lot of new features such as a traction control system and ABS modes (both firsts on a Bajaj bike) along with a inverted fork and digital instrument console. 

This naturally raises the question, how does the 2024 Bajaj Pulsar N250 stack up when compared to the previous generation N250. We will be answering that question through this image comparison here. 

Design

The new N250 comes with a similar design as the previous generation bike, but what stands out when comparing the two is the new inverted fork that the 2024 edition comes with, which is a 37mm unit. Interestingly the previous version came with a same diameter fork but that was a telescopic unit and was blacked out. The inverted fork on the new edition comes with a golden finish on the Pearl Metallic White, and Glossy Racing Red colours. The Brooklyn Black colour features an inverted fork with a black finish.

Overall, the N250 looks much better than the old N250 thanks to the new range of colours with stylish graphics, which is a lot more in-your face than the older generation bike. 

Engine

Bajaj hasn’t made any changes to the performance and both bikes are still powered by the same 249.07cc air/oil-cooled single-cylinder engine that produces 24.5PS at 8750rpm and 21.5Nm at 6500rpm. The engine is mated to a 5-speed gear box and comes with a slip-and-assist clutch.

In the previous version, the engine came with a blacked out finish, whereas now the engine gets a grey finish.

Underpinnings

The bike has gone through some changes to the underpinnings aside from the introduction of a new inverted fork. The bike now rolls on fatter 110-section front and 140-section rear MRF Zapper S1 tyres and this change is expected to ensure better handling overall combined with the new inverted fork. Other than that, the suspension in the rear remains the same which is a preload adjustable Nitrox monoshock.

Aside from this, the wheelbase has been shortened by 9mm and is now 1342mm, whereas the seat height has been increased by 5mm and is now 800mm. Other changes include the kerb weight being increased by 2kg.

Features

The new N250 comes with a fully digital instrument console similar to what we have seen on the Bajaj Pulsar NS200, whereas the old N250 comes with a semi-digital unit with an analogue tachometer. To be honest, we liked the old-school look of the semi-digital instrument cluster. That said, the new one packs in lots of smart features, thanks to its smartphone connectivity via the Bajaj Ride Connect app.

With the smartphone connectivity, the bike comes with call and SMS alerts, along with a turn-by-turn navigation as well. Riders can navigate the console using a new button on the left side switchgear. Both the consoles in the 2024 and 2023 model have readouts like speed, odometer, fuel level, mileage, and other essential details such as distance-to-empty (DTE) readouts.

Bajaj Pulsar N250 new switch gear

Other than the new instrument console, the bike also gets a traction control system and 3 ABS modes: Rain, Road and Off-Road. These two features are a first on any Bajaj bike. The ABS modes modulate the amount of ABS intervention, with the Rain mode being the most intrusive and Off-Road being the least. The Off-Road mode doesn’t switch off the ABS and only limits intervention at the rear wheel considerably to let it slide a bit. Riders also have the option to switch off traction control in this mode. On the other hand, the older generation Pulsar N250 came only with a standard dual-channel ABS without any modes. It did not have traction control either, but it isn’t something you really need in a 250cc bike.

Other features remain the same, and the N250 comes with a fuel tank mounted USB charging port as well.

Verdict

2024 Bajaj Pulsar N250

The new Bajaj Pulsar N250 is a massive upgrade over the old and it comes with many new features that Bajaj should have offered earlier. Nevertheless we are glad that the bike has been finally updated making it more competitive when compared to its rivals, and that too all for a very small premium of Rs 851.
