Finally, the full dope on the Bajaj Pulsar 180 DTSi Limited Edition.

The bike:
The Limited Edition is exactly identical to the normal 180 except for

  • Orange colour paintjob
  • Chrome stickering on the tank ('Pulsar') with Limited Edition printed below
The Deal:
Bajaj is offering the Limited Edition (I'll just call it DTSiLe) as an auction. The reserve price for the auction is Rs 70,000 (ex-showroom price). Prospective owners are required to fill out a bid form. The chap with the biggest wallet wins the day. I hear something about any extra money earned beyond the reserve price being given away to a charitable cause. This makes the bike about Rs 78,000 on-road (at reserve price) in New Bombay

How many:
There will be a total of 90 DTSiLes sold around the country. Each Pro-Biking dealer will receive between one and two bikes for sale depending on the town profile, sales record and similar criteria.

Other:
The normal 'Phatom' DTSi 180 will be available in the usual colours, including the all-black, red and blue shades. These are priced at the same price point as the outgoing (older) 180. Which means any dealer quoting (I've heard two) a premium price over the previous model is overcharging you.

Well if the money is going for a charitable cause then it is defiantly good, after all there are a lot of brats who would be willing to pay a premium for a limited edition tag!

Just thought I'd nitpick on this.

Why didnt Bajaj increase the power to say, around 19-20 bhp for the special edition? Mileage be damed! Oh my God! Did I just commit blasphemy in the Indian motorcycling context?!

:P
