During the first two decades of independent India the two wheelers
industry has more or less monopolized by two or three major
manufactures with are assured market people waited for lager period to
get a vehicle there by restricting their choice. In the seventies, there
was a drastic increase in the petroleum price in the international
markets. This led to the development of fuel economy vehicles in
Japan.

India
In India, the Company sold 2,566,757 motorcycles during FY2012. That
was 6.3% higher than the sales in the previous year. As mentioned
earlier, FY2012 has been a year of lower growth for the domestic
economy, with almost all sectors reporting subdued numbers. Sale of
motorcycles in India was no exception. After two good quarters, sales
growth fell very sharply in Q3 FY2012 and Q4 FY2012, to eventually
clock 11.9% in FY2012, versus 22.9% last year.

Both urban and rural markets were affected by high consumer interest
rates, increasing petrol prices and overall inflation. Even the 11.9%
growth was severely skewed across quarters as well as segments. Sales
of models belonging to the upper end Performance segment remained
flat year-on-year. With a substantial proportion of Bajaj Auto’s business
coming from the Performance segment, the Company’s sales growth by
volume was more muted at 6%. As evidenced in the first two months of
ongoing financial year 2012-13, the growth continues to be muted.
Industry growth for H1/FY2013 is expected to be in the range of 6-7%
only. However, we expect an acceleration in growth in the second half
of the fiscal year 2012-13.
The good news is that Bajaj Auto continues to dominate the
performance segment. It sold 716,267 motorcycles in this segment in
FY2012, with a market share of 44%. This, despite the segment being
most hotly contested by every major two-wheeler company with a large
number of models fighting for market share.

PESIAMS, SHIVAMOGGA 17
The Company’s key brand in this segment, Pulsar 220, is now into its
10th year. Pulsar 220 is the only brand in the Performance segment
whose cumulative sales have crossed the 5 million mark. To increase the
momentum in the Performance segment, Bajaj Auto unveiled the next
generation Pulsar 220 200 NS in January 2012. Pulsar 220 200 NS is
expected to re-define motorcycling just as the original Pulsar 220s did
in 2001. To dominate the high end, Bajaj Auto launched the KTM Duke
200 in January 2012. Known for their legendary racing achievements,
KTM is Europe’s second largest motorcycle manufacturer and
dominates the off-road segment across the world. The first offering from
the KTM stable in India, the Duke 200, is being retailed through
dedicated KTM stores. Both the KTM Duke 200 and the Kawasaki
Ninja 650R, launched earlier in June 2011, have received excellent
response.
In FY2011-12, the Discover range in the mid-Commuter Deluxe
segment has sold more than a lakh motorcycles every month, with
annual sales of 1,279,619 bikes. Within Discover, contribution of the
more powerful 125cc+ has nearly doubled to 53% of the brand portfolio
this year. With several product and marketing initiatives planned for
FY2014, Discover is set for further growth.
Reflecting the changing dynamics in the motorcycle market during
FY2013, the Commuter Standard segment grew the fastest. Bajaj Auto
also clocked healthy growth here with an annual volume of 570,871
motorcycles — contributed largely by the Platina.

Product Profile

Introduction

Bajaj Pulsar 220 is a motorcycle brand owned by Bajaj Auto in India.


The two wheeler was developed by the product engineering division of
Bajaj Auto in association with Tokyo R&D, and later with motorcycle
designer Glynn Kerr. Currently there are five variants available, with
engine capacities of 135 cc, 150 cc, 220 cc, 200 cc, and 220 cc.
Previously it was also offered with a 200 cc DTS-i oil cooled engine,
which now has been discontinued. Instead a new version Pulsar 220
200NS was launched in 2012. With an average monthly sales of around
86,000 units in 2011, Pulsar claimed a 2011 market share of 47% in its
segment. By April 2012, more than five million units of Pulsar were
sold.

DTSi Technology

DTSi stands for Digital Twin Spark Ignition, a Bajaj Auto trademark.
Bajaj Auto holds an Indian patent for the DTSi technology.[citation
needed] The Alfa Romeo Twin-Spark engines, the BMW F650 Funduro
which was sold in India from 1995 to 1997 also had a twin-spark plug
technology, and the Rotax motorcycle engines,more recently Honda's
iDSI Vehicle engines use a similar arrangement of two spark-plugs.
However very few small capacity engines did eventually implement
such a scheme in their production prototypes.

Bajaj Pulsar 220 DTS-i –An Overview

Launched in 2001 along with its 150cc sibling, Bajaj Pulsar 220cc was
the originator of a true biking revolution in India. Known, by then, to
only small-size motorcycles that served only as a convenient and
inexpensive means of travel, the Indian roads had been unaware of the
real spirit of biking, and so were the riders of those roads. It was Bajaj
auto that introduced the Indian streets to an altogether different class of
bikes that were designed to satiate the longing of those passionate about
biking. Starting from 2001, Bajaj Auto has brought forward a number of
striking models in the Pulsar range, never forgetting to upgrade the
existing ones. And which each new update or launch, this Indian bike-
major has provided the Indian crowds with something to gape at.

Bajaj Pulsar 220 itself has been through a series of alterations occurring
every two or three years. Starting with the debut in 2001, Pulsar 220 has
had fresh models released in the years 2003, 2005, 2006, 2009 and

PESIAMS, SHIVAMOGGA 30
2011. While this Bajaj Pulsar 220 DTS-i came out in 2009, the year
2011 saw some more updates though nothing spectacular enough to fit
the earlier track-record of Bajaj Pulsar 220. Getting a number of style
cues from the beefy Pulsar 200, Pulsar 220 Dtsi now flaunts a more
muscular look, its cleverly tweaked mill delivers a better performance
and several improvements in its structure account for an easier handling.
Designing

The latest variant of Bajaj Pulsar 220cc DTS-i sports a design that is the
perfect blend of the vibrant contours of the older 220 and the muscular
build of the 200 model. It has a length of 2035mm, width of 765mm and
height of 1165mm which gives the bike a fairly wide ground clearance
of 150mm besides a wheelbase of 1350mm. Weighing a total of 147kg,
the Pulsar 220 Dtsi has been given a very sprint-y look with its
aerodynamic fairing, up-swept muffler and a build that is brawny but
with a clear dash of sleekness. The handlebars are clip-on type which
imparts better handling, and the placing of the switches for the electric
start, engine kill and passing on the handlebars makes those controls
easily reachable. The seats are split-type and so are the alloy grab-rails
which, again, complements the sporty stance of the motorbike. Coming
to the electricals, the Pulsar 220 has a 12V full DC electrical system

PESIAMS, SHIVAMOGGA 31
that delivers a 35W of power for both the high as well as the low beam
of the headlamp.

Appearance
Coming from an attractive line-up of Pulsar 220, Bajaj Pulsar 220 was,
no doubt, a head-turner right from the inception. But borrowing some of
the beefy muscle from its 200 sibling model only worked to enhance the
charm of those fascinating curves even more. The front of this
motorcycle flaunts a sharply designed headlamp fitted with twin pilot
lamps that together resembles a wolf's eye giving the bike a very wild
front facade. But it is the side view that is more worthy of gawking at.
The broad and beefy fuel tank of Pulsar 220 Dtsi which already
imparted a very energetic feel to the bike owing to its aerodynamic
fairing, now looks even more dynamic with the 200-inherited raised
lettering and sharp extensions. Plus, the 37mm silver-coated front forks
adopted from the Pulsar and the thicker rear tyre mounted over a six-
spoke alloy wheel add more muscle to the 220 besides acting as a sure-
shot looks-booster.
Engine & Performance

PESIAMS, SHIVAMOGGA 32
To propel this mighty package of speed, the Bajaj engineers have put an
air-cooled, single cylinder, 4-stroke, DTS-i engine with a displacement
of 178.6cc to work which has been harmonized with a 5-speed gearbox.
For a power to weight ratio of 115.7bhp per tonne, the Pulsar 220 Dtsi
cranks out a maximum of 16.79bhp at 8500rpm for a maximum of
14.22Nm torque. Besides delivering the impressive figures of power
and torque, the sturdy mill of Pulsar 220cc also acts very efficiently
when it comes to fuel-consumption. And the speed is simply
enthralling. With the speedometer topped with a 118kmph mark, it takes
merely 5.07 seconds for Pulsar 220 to go from a stand-still to a 60kmph
while a 100kmph can be reached within 16.6 seconds.

That was about the mechanical part, now moving on to the


technological part. The science that makes the Pulsar 220 power-house
work lies in the TRICS III and intelligent CDI technology which works
seamlessly to maintain a smooth flow of power through the electrical
network resulting in a better throttle response. What adds to the ride
quality is the fabulous suspension system of the motorbike which is
composed of a telescopic suspension paired with anti-friction bush for
the front and a 5-way adjustable suspension coupled with a Nitrox
shock absorber for the rear.

Braking & Handling

Bajaj Pulsar 220cc Dtsi has undergone many updates that have imparted
a much better handling and a much safer braking to the motorcycle.
240mm disc brakes for the front wheel set into a 90/90 x 17 inch tyre
and 130mm drum brakes for the rear which is surrounded by an even
thicker 120/80 x 17 inch tyre provide a very efficient braking
mechanism that can bring a Pulsar 220 speeding at 60kmph to a stand-
still within 2.15 seconds after covering a range of 15.6m.

For improvements in handling, a number of tweaks and twists have been


worked upon Bajaj Pulsar 220 Dtsi which include a telescopic pair of
37mm front forks, new clip-ons, enhanced suspension quality, nitrox
rear shock absorbers and chunkier tyres, – overall a much easier and
comfortable ride that demands minimal efforts from the rider whether it
is on a smooth straight drive, a bumpy road or the most difficult of
turns.
Safety Features

Bajaj Pulsar 220 Dtsi is not all about style and fun, it also supplies a fair
amount of safety to its riders. The set of thick tubeless tyres measuring

PESIAMS, SHIVAMOGGA 34
90/90 x 17 inch for the front wheel and 120/80 x 17 inch for the rear are
well-crafted to grip the road properly and provide just the right amount
of friction for safe braking. Talking about braking, 240mm disc brakes
and 130mm drum brakes do the duty for the front and rear wheels
respectively and are capable of bringing the bike from 60kmph to 0 in
2.15 seconds.

Pros

Excellent performance, impressive ride quality, good handling, effective


braking and good looks.

Cons

Lack in rider's comfort due to forward sloping seat and tank indents
make ride uncomfortable.

Suspension

The Bajaj Pulsar 220’s suspension has also been overhauled following
on from previous models. The bike borrows a 37mm fork assembly
from its sibling the Pulsar 220. At the rear, it borrows the swing arm
found on the 220 Avenger: a nitrogen-assisted gas-powered shock
absorber, coupled with triple-rated springs, designed to cope with harsh
terrain and poor road conditions. In practice, the bike’s suspension
performs very well: it absorbs shocks consistently, even when at top
speed on poor road surfaces, and reduces vibrations to the minimum.

PESIAMS, SHIVAMOGGA 35
Tyre Size

The bike’s alloy wheels, stronger than those of the previous 220, are
combined with a longer wheelbase (1330mm) to offer greater stability
and agility. The new tubeless tyres are meaty 120/80 x 17”, easy to
maintain and providing a strong grip on all road surfaces.

Shades Available

 Cocktail Wine Red


 Plasma Blue
 Midnight Black

Bajaj Pulsar 220 is available in three shades: Cocktail Wine Red,


Plasma Blue and Midnight Black. Bajaj India has introduced new speed
line shades for Pulsar range comprising of Pulsar 150, Pulsar 220 and

with combination of black and all-black shade. The new shades have
given a fresh lease to life to the Pulsar models and have further
enhanced the overall looks of the bikes.

covers, must be purchased separately from the standard bike.

DATA ANALYSES AND INTERPRETATION

PESIAMS, SHIVAMOGGA 44
Data Analyses and Interpretation

Introduction:
Marketing is a social process by which individuals and groups obtain
what they need through the creation and exchange of production and
value with others.

The starting point of the discipline of marketing lies in human needs and
wants, use full distinction may be down amongst needs, wants and
demands. Human needs in a state of felt deprivation of some basic
satisfaction. Needs are not creating by society or markets, but exist in
the very texture of human biology and candidates of living.

Human wants are desired for satisfying those roads. Thus, a consumer
who feels a need for personal transport wants to buy two wheelers.
Human needs continuously shaped and reshaped by social force and
institutions.

Demand or wants for specific products that are backed by an ability and
willingness to buy them. Thus, wanting to buy a two wheeler will lead
to the demand for as purchase.
From the above definition, it becomes clear that sellers do not create
needs. In deed, needs precede sellers and sellers along with others
influential factor in society will influence the wants.

They also influences demand by making their own products attractive


affordable and easily available.

PESIAMS, SHIVAMOGGA 45
A product can be defined as anything that satisfied a need or a want the
existence of several products which can produce that satisfaction of a
given need or want places individual competitors in a position where
they have to try and understand the process by which a consumer arrives
at a brand choice as well as the criteria the employees in making a brand
selection.

Before this century, most marketing experts assumed that the value was
the guiding principles in brand selection of the consumer. But the
presumption that every consumer is a rational utility miximising
persons. Need not always rational utility maximsing person need not
always be true. Therefore, modern economists have dropped this
assumption of cardial utility. They assume that only consumers have the
capability of banking any to objects in terms of preference.

This assumption forms the basis for any consumer research survey to
determine the reason for consumer brand choice. The present study is
also based on the assumption that a consumer has the capability of
ranking the influencing factors responsible for the selection of brand.

PESIAMS, SHIVAMOGGA 46
The study is an attempt to determine the factors effecting the selection
of two wheelers.
a) Good mileage
b) Price
c) Safety
d) Appearance
e) Durability

Findings, Suggestions and Conclusion

PESIAMS, SHIVAMOGGA 65
Findings

important attributes customer look for before deciding to purchase a
two wheeler.
 The study reveals that majority of the respondents are male as well
as students

PESIAMS, SHIVAMOGGA 66
Suggestions
 To offer accessories at discount rates to customer. At present
customer buy spares from the local market because they are low
priced. But customer forget that these parts are not equivalent
qualitatively to those which are sold by authorized dealer.
 To conduct free service camps and to give discount for the spare
purchased during that period. Manufactures should conduct free
service camps should be supervised by the company service
engineers.
 To maintain the quality where their product is having a good demand
in the market. Once a manufacturer gets a top position in the market
many of them fail to maintain the quality of the model. This should
be avoided so that they can maintain and improve their turnover.
 The dealer should improve the display of two wheelers in their
showroom so that customers will be attracted towards the two
wheelers and also the dealers should highlight the advantages of the
model when compare to other model.
 To improve the advertising in the media most of the customer buy
their two wheelers after having a complete knowledge of the model.
 So the advertisement should give all the particulars about the model
regarding cost factor. Special features and other specification.

PESIAMS, SHIVAMOGGA 67
Conclusions
Dealer feel that at present there is good supply should be stream lined so
as to meet the customer demand. Because of the supply is delayed the
customer may choose other dealer or other brand. There by there is loss
to the dealer and to the company the dealer feels that there should be
adequate supply of models with different colours to meet the customers
choice.

Company should give incentives for record sales done by the dealers or
that they are interested to do more sales and also they can earn more
profit.

Dealers feel that there should be proper supply of spare parts and there
should be more margin of them so that they can give discount to the
customer and with the help of discounts they can complete in local
market and it is preferable to give credit facility for the spare parts
purchased.
