Bajaj Pulsar 375 SS to launch before 200 SS?
In the next six months, Bajaj is going to launch 3 motorcycles, out of which Super Sport Pulsar 375 could be one. However, it is unclear if Pulsar 400 SS will wait for launch of Pulsar 200 SS or race ahead.
Mr. Rajiv Bajaj, Managing Director of Bajaj Autos, disclosed to IndianCarsBikes at the launch of new Discover 150 that the company has planned three launches in next six months and a full faired model called Super Sport Pulsar is definitely one among them. Since he did not mention more about the SS Pulsar, it could be the 200 SS or 400 SS. Considering the expected launch date of KTM RC 390 launch to be 9th September 2014, Bajaj could drop Pulsar 375 into market soon as a more affordable alternative.
Case of Pulsar 400 SS will be a D√©j√† vu, as Bajaj will build the Pulsar 375 with majority of parts from KTM’s bin. Only slight mechanical changes would be presented. With increasing demand for full faired bikes, and popularity of Pulsar nameplate, Bajaj is expected to see good sales figures out of such products. While price of KTM RC 390 is expected to fall in Rs. 2.1 to Rs. 2.3 lakhs, Bajaj Pulsar 400 SS may be priced at around Rs. 1.8 lakhs, close to the cost of KTM Duke 390.
