Bajaj Pulsar N250 Overview
The Bajaj Pulsar N250 has a stylish Naked sport look to it. Which is signified by the N acronym in the name of the bike. The “N” is Naked.
The principle for the design was “sculptural purity”. It also sports a tone-on-tone dynamic with metalized dual colors and satin silver components.
While the design philosophy has not changed at all, the front section for the N series looks completely different from its sibling the Pulsar 220F in terms of styling.
The naked sport gets a single-piece handlebar along with a complicated headlamp setup.
Moreover, the new N250 also gets modern features like a bi-functional projector LED headlamp with flank LED DRLs and a twin LED tail lamp. Additionally, there are other visual elements including a chunky engine cowl, split-seat setup, and split-type grab rails.
Similar to one of its siblings, the Dominar series, Pulsar 250 also debuts an all-new dual-barrel exhaust.
Another minor change or moreover upgrade is that it sports an all-new infinity analog-digital instrument cluster. It shares its similarities with the classic meter but displays additional information like Gear Position, Clock, Range Indicator, and Fuel Efficiency. But it does not feature Bluetooth connectivity. Bajaj Pulsar N250 is available in two colors: Racing Red and Techno Grey.
Bajaj Pulsar N250 is powered by the all-new 249.07cc, Single-Cylinder, 4-stroke,2-valve, oil-cooled SOHC FI engine.
Additionally, It is mated to a 5-speed gearbox with Slipper Clutch.
However, there are a few disappointments considering the engine configuration.
Bajaj opted for a 5-speed gearbox rather than a 6-speed. Moreover, it even opts in for oil-cooling rather than liquid-cooling.
Bajaj is yet to reveal all the features, but here is a list of what we know.

Bajaj N250 Price and Availability in Nepal
If we are talking about the price rate. The price for the N250 starts at INRs. 1.38 Lakhs in the Indian market.
“Looking at the price of F250 for the Indian market, the price of Bajaj F250 in Nepal can be estimated to be above the price of NS200 and rather lower than the price of Dominar 250”
As the pulsar line-up is one of the most popular line-ups in Nepal, the anticipation for the new line-up is at an all-time high. With this information, we can expect the new series to be launching in Nepal sometime in 2022. Though this is speculation, Bajaj Nepal has not made any comments about when the new line-up will be arriving in the markets of Nepal.
As the new N250 is new blood within the 250cc series, it is bound to have various competition within the market itself. The competitions being FZ25, Apache RTR 200 4V, KTM Duke 250, and Suzuki Gixxer 250. Chances are the N250 might even be a competition for its own siblings like NS200 as the price for NS200 and N250 might not be different by too high of a margin.
As the N250 is one of the most anticipated bikes in recent years, the features that it sports are a bit disappointing. But by no means, does it mean that the bike itself is gonna be bad. It just does not have that wow factor that you would be expecting from one of the most loved line-ups.
However, the disappointments are moreover amplified after having compared the N250 with its other siblings, which sport way too similar specifications to that of N250 itself. Moreover, there were some people even going as far as to say that it was basically a higher displacement of the NS series with only a few added features to make it appeal to the public.
To be honest and fair here, if you were to look at the images of the N250, from the tail light portion, you would not even be able to differentiate if the bike is Dominar or the N250.
Will the F250 live up to the amount of hype it has generated, that we will have to wait and see.
As for the price of the bike in the Nepalese market, we can expect it to be around at least Rs 4-5 Lakhs. This price is solely speculative as the price point has not been released and given how high the taxation in Nepal is currently for petroleum product vehicles are, chances are the price may even be around Rs 6 lakhs.
