Bajaj Auto to adopt fuel injecting tech for Pulsar
Mumbai, May 11: Bajaj Auto is poised to become the first automobile maker in India to roll out a two-wheeler fitted with a fuel injection system in place of the carburettor.
The company said the first to have this new technology will be a 230 cc motorcycle which will extend Bajaj Pulsar, in a release issued here today.
However, the company wishes to extend this technolgy to its other products, it added.
Bajaj Auto has been increasing its focus on technology and has applied for a world-wide patent for the fuel injection system, although some other two-wheeler makers overseas, most notably Honda of Japan, have been making very high displacement motorcycles fitted with a fuel injection system.
The fuel injection system will ensure emission reductions and adaptability of two-wheelers to any climatic situations.
Computers are used in modern fuel injection systems to regulate the process. The positive effects of fuel injection are that there is more efficient fuel combustion, better fuel economy and engine performance and reduced polluting exhaust emissions.
A fuel injector sprays an intermittent, timed, metered quantity of fuel into a cylinder, distributing the fuel throughout the air within. The new fuel injection system would be incorporated with the DTSi (digital twin spark ignition), a technology for which the company already holds a patent, the release added.
