Story of ShotGun- 3

As time Rolled by, these mules were being tested to their limits on road by . The newly formed Bajaj's Cross Functional Team headed by Mr.Pradeep Srivastava started to make headway in the clear definition of the Product.

The road test by customer started to yield results. The Pulsars started to refine & become better products.

Around Oct / Nov 2001 news of the roll out of the Pulsar Twins in Pune started to trickle thro' the press. The Curiosity around the Pulsars began to increase in other Cities. Pune became the Focal point of all the "To be Pulsar Boys", so too for the Competitors of Bajaj.

These were the days Internet was still in its infancy in India. An elite few had access to it most of them being Techies from IT industry. They began to feed trickles of 'hear says' to those who wished to track all possible stories around the Pulsars, mostly nurturing the Pulsar dreams.

As they say, when you open the gates, you'd get both Good & Bad elements, most hear say began to flow. Many had far from truth negativity in them.

Topping the list of was this news on " Some one died of groin Injury while riding a Pulsar"

The Service of these Motorcycles were being carried out in the Specially built Eliminator Enclaves (meant only to Service Kawasaki Eliminators).The Initial failures also started to creep on to the net, so did the Service Woes of the Riders.

However the Word of Mouth Publicity started to move out from the "Physical / Personal" connections to Mailing Groups. One such was BajajPulsar group on Yahoo.

It suddenly Caught the Attention of People inside Bajaj Auto. However there was a small Problem.
