Bajaj Pulsar 220 modified to look like a real superbike
Sold in many countries, the Pulsar is one of the best selling motorcycle nameplate in the world. Arguably the best Pulsar till date, the 220 was first introduced in India by Bajaj Auto back in 2007. First made-in-India motorcycle for India, to use clip-on handle bars, rear disc brakes, and a fuel injection system, Pulsar 220 FI was easily the bike-to-buy for those who wanted to upgrade from Pulsar 180 or Hero Honda Karizma.
The design and styling of Pulsar 220 was impressive for that time. Even after seven years, the same bike is being sold, albeit with minor cosmetic changes. Sadly, the 220 FI is no longer available. Bajaj never gave a reason, but many believe that it was the high price of the FI which was the reason of it’s demise. But, the 220 still survives in the form of Pulsar 220F.
Nevertheless, there are many in the world who still own the 220. One such passionate owner is Banjar Wijaya of Tangerang near Jakarta, Indonesia. Banjar has modified his Pulsar 220, which is impressive enough for the title of best modified Pulsar 220. Below is the image gallery of Banjar’s Pulsar modified with the help from Rudy of Blessing Motor. Following is the detailed account of mods they have used;
Body: fairing, fuel tank, rear tail model of a full custom Suzuki GSX 600 + delta box frame Aprilia.
