    Hello Biker Boys,

    Let me introduce you to my old (and not so trustworthy :D) friend, my 2007 Bajaj Pulsar 220 Dts-Fi. I was desperately waiting to finish college so I could start earning and saving up for buying a bike for myself, took me year of saving hard before I could actually think about picking up one, but eventually I did get one back in November 2007.

    For those times it was a top of the line bike and also the fastest bike in production at that time. It could have been India's first fuel injected bike, but HeroHonda shamelessly put a PGM-Fi unit in its 125cc Glamour to claim the position as India's first Fi bike :p

    Overall I have done close to 90K Kms on this bike over the past 5 years. I have had my share of niggles as well considering this was a first generation product, but overall its been an amazing experience. The bike is bone stock except for running Iridium spark plugs and slightly different tyres which have altered its gearing.

    I've covered/touched the following registration area's on my bike :-

    1. KA
    2. TN
    3. KL
    4. AP
    5. MH
    6. GA
    7. DL
    8. HP
    9. JK

    I do wish to add some more to my kitty, but my bike isn't in top shape last 1 year despite my best attempt. I might end up upgrading soon, but the 220 still remains in my garage since its very close to my heart :)

    Here are some pictures of bike at different places ...

    in terms of looks i really loved it.. was way ahead of competition in terms of looks.. if hero honda came up with it.. then we would have seen hundreds on road..
  3. After riding 220,i dont like riding any less than 200cc bikes...They are too small for me.I really miss my bike sometimes,but I am not much of a bike person...

    So what you upgrading to??KTM duke?or 200ns??

    I've been waiting last 5 years for a proper upgrade to the 220. Yet to find it..

    Duke200/200NS is too small a jump from the 220. Waiting for the rumored Duke375 :)

    Hopefully it should be launched by early 2013

    Yes, the rear tyre is prone to Puncture. If you have crossed 20k change your tyres to Pirelli, Michelin or Dunlop. The problem with the default tyre is it's profile is very low.

    My white angel served her purpose when I was in Pune for two years. Used to take her out every weekend exploring the beautiful ghats around Pune. Wonderful days they were.Alibaug,Malshej,Sinhagad,Lonavala,Mahabs and what not. After coming back to Chennai the biker in me died as the weather is not favourable and there are not many places to actually go for a trip. She started showing signs of aging by rusting and starting problems. Gave her for a thorough check up last week. Battery changed, paint touch ups done and she is back to form ;)

    stands at 32k kms on odo

    Went for a trip chennai->vedanthangal->thirukazhukundram->mahabalipuram->chennai

    and here she is
