Bajaj has stunned every other motor vehicle manufacturer in India recently by selling more than 1 lakh units of Bajaj Pulsar last month. This is a great improvement by Bajaj considering the poor sale of Pulsar in February. The Pulsar series from Bajaj comes in 150, 160, 180, 200, and 200cc engine options. The achievement is again impeccable considering Bajaj 150 bike is the best selling trim from the company's Pulsar lineup, which also manages to lead the highly competitive 150cc bike segment in India with a big margin.
Bajaj also manages to attain good growth last month thanks to the scintillating sales performance of Pulsar. For those, who love number games, Bajaj sold 3,93,251 two-wheeler units last month in comparison to the 3.34,338 units sold by the company last year resulting in a Y-o-Y growth of 18 percent. On the other hand, the domestic sales figure of Bajaj Auto stands around 2.59,185 units in comparison to 2,03,600 units last year.

Shedding more light on the sales statistics, Bajaj has been able to pull off a Year-On-Year growth of 27 percent last month. The company has also exported 1.34.166 units previous month in comparison to 1.30.748 units in the same month last year, which indicate growth of around 3 percent. Overall, a 25% growth has been attained by the Chakan based auto manufacturer in FY19 owing to the ‘never-to-late’ success of its Pulsar models.
Talking about other Bajaj bike models, the entry-level models like CT100 and Platina have also been priced aggressively by the company resulting in boosted sales numbers. ABS system has also been introduced in all the Pulsar series models by Bajaj expect the recently launched Pulsar 180F, which shares its design cues and mechanical specs with the Pulsar 220F. Well, we also expect ABS to soon debut in Pulsar 180F may be in a different trim as it is necessary for all the two-wheelers above 125cc in India to equip ABS system as standard w.e.f. April 1, 2019. The presence of ABS in the Pulsar series may have bumped the prices, but the Pulsar sales carnival remained unaffected last month.
Currently, Bajaj is busy working on a new Pulsar model, which might also come with 250cc powermill. This upcoming model from Bajaj is inspired mainly from the KTM Duke 250 bike and is also rumored to be the most expensive one from the Pulsar lineup. The work on BS VI complaint engines is also in progress at Bajaj as it is essential for the company to update their entire line up before Indian auto sector takes its first major stride towards ‘go green initiative’ on April 2020.
