The stunt riding team - Ghostryderz also ensured to put up a show at the finale.
Commenting on the conclusion of the unique event, Sumeet Narang, Vice President, Marketing, Bajaj Auto said, "We extend our heartiest congratulations to the winners of the first ever Pulsar Cup. Pulsar is about performance and speed and the Pulsar festival of Speed has been able to bring out the essence of the brand through this multi city high energy engagement activity. The event was a huge success with both the Pulsar racing enthusiasts and youths across the cities.
He further added, "Pulsar is the market leader in the sports segment and it's our endeavour to evolve the landscape and keep raising the bar for customer engagement. Pulsar is a highly acclaimed brand and we wanted to create an exciting platform that provided our patrons with the ultimate racing experience."
With sales of the Pulsar series going strong across different segments, Bajaj Auto will soon expand its flagship family in the higher capacity space. The bike is expected to introduce the much talked about CS (Cruiser Sport) 400 later this year. The new flagship from Bajaj will be its most powerful ever, sharing several components with the KTM Duke 390, but is expected to get a competitive price tag somewhere close to the ₹ 2 lakh mark.
