2009 Pulsar 220 DTSi - What its missing

Watta hype!

There was too much hype around the "Fastest bike in India' thats to be launched june 23rd 09. Bike enthusiast all over India were too anxious whether the new bike from bajaj is gonna be a 250cc or a 300. Plus sites like kindled the curiousity of the poor bikers over their forum.

Now that the "Fastest production bike in India" is anoounced, did it deserve that much hype?

Well, the new pulsar 220 DTSi has one more horse power, and the FI is gone and the carb is in. What else great about the bike? Anything to boast of ? Of course this new Tweak is 10k less on the bill. Somebody tell these guys there are amazingly performing machines available to the world (minus India). Either our bike makers grow up to build more powerful bikes(we are not asking much, a inline 250cc t0 400 is great) or stop hype it up killing our passion.

The new 220 DTSi is great on the value for money factor. But isnt this premium segment value performance than 10k more?

The new 220 DTSi could've sported atleast a 4 valve per cylinder, international styling, mono suspension on the rear. Say wat bikers ?
