Much awaited Bajaj Pulsar 400CS has been spied once again while on test ahead of global launch. First showcased at the 2014 Auto Expo, Bajaj Pulsar 400CS was an instant hit. Along side the 400CS was the 400RS, whose design has now been incorporated into the 200RS. Bajaj launched the Pulsar 200RS last year, and now its time for the launch of new 400CS.
Designed as a cruiser, the upcoming Pulsar 400CS gets a chiseled, low slung design, with a flair of Pulsar design language. In the front is a LED headlight which seems to be inspired from the head of a Transformer. Besides the headlight is smart and sleek LED indicators.
Other design features include new fuel tank design, split seat (with a shape inspired from Ducati Diavel), digital speedometer mounted on the fuel tank, digital instrument cluster, wide tyres for that extra grip you need while taking on the corners, disc brakes with dual channel ABS, LED taillight and LED turn indicators, and a newly developed exhaust system.
Powering the new Bajaj Pulsar 400CS is a KTM Duke RC 390 based 373 cc single cylinder liquid cooled 4 stroke engine. On board the KTM twins, this engine delivers 44 PS power and 35 Nm torque. Considering that the Pulsar 400 is a Cruiser Sport, the engine is expected to be tuned to offer more low end torque and less higher-end power, with focus being on comfortable cruising in the mid-range.
Once launched, not only it will be the most powerful Pulsar ever, it will also be the fastest Pulsar till date. Expected price will be in the range of INR 1.6-1.8 lakh, ex-showroom, placing it between the KTM Duke 200 and the Duke 390.
