We recently told you about the Bajaj Dominar 400 receiving a price hike of nearly ₹ 6000. Now, Bajaj Auto has revised the prices across most motorcycles in its line-up by up ₹ 2950. This includes the Bajaj Pulsar line-up, Discover range and even the entry-level Platina motorcycles. The Avenger 220 series remain unaffected by the price hike. With the price hike, Bajaj joins rival Hero MotoCorp in increasing its prices. More recently, the latter announced a one per cent hike in prices across its two-wheeler line-up.
