Bajaj Pulsar 400 is all set to become the fastest and the most expensive motorcycle in the Indian brand’s lineup. A red example of the motorcycle with RS400 stickers on the tailpiece has been spotted for the first time.
Premiered at last year’s Auto Expo as a near production concept under 400SS nameplate, the flagship Pulsar had been announced to be launched within this fiscal year. Will Bajaj surprise us by getting in the market as early as this festive season? Well, we have to wait and watch.
Going by the spyshots, Bajaj Pulsar RS400 looks identical to Pulsar RS200 save for the identity revealing tailpiece stickers. ABS sticker on the front fender confirms that the sportsbike will be richly equipped. While its smaller sibling offers the safety feature as an option, RS400 is likely to have it as a standard equipment.
Bajaj is most likely to use KTM Duke 390’s single-cylinder 373.2 cc liquid cooled engine. On board KTM, the motor produces a healthy 43.5 PS and 35 Nm of torque. A 6-speed gearbox mated to the engine via a slipper clutch (KTM 390s are updated with one) would make Pulsar RS400 a very attractive proposition.
Bajaj is known for surprising the loyalists with mouth watering introductory price tag. Pulsar RS400 is estimated to cost somewhere between INR 1.75 – 2 lakhs (ex-showroom).
