I also own Bajaj Pulsar a new model, Digitial meter one bought just 06 months back. I am also facing problems like paint chipping off from plastic parts, metal part those painted black are catching rust easily. Also there is some knocking/kat-kat sound and pickup is very low.
I have made this complaint no. of times, at Bajaj Bagga link but they like are accusing my of off all this, your upkeep may not be good, while I also have have 04 years old TVS victor its metal parts & paint and rest of the bike is good shape no sign of rust.
BAJAJ Accessories /paints/finishing is very poor, I am almost feeling sorry for myself of my wrong decision.
