Caught testing on the Pune – Lonavala highway, Bajaj Pulsar CS400 has now been caught on video by a Yamaha R15 rider. Obviously there is no comparison between the two, one is a 150 cc while the other is a 373 cc, but the interesting thing to note here is riding posture of the CS 400 rider and the way he accelerates to top speed.
Even while the Yamaha R15 rider is travelling at 120 kmph, the Pulsar CS400 rider is pulling away at a faster rate than before, which means the CS400 is still accelerating. It is very much possible that the Pulsar 400 is at speeds of over 150 kmph.
Showcased first at the 2014 Auto Expo, Bajaj Pulsar CS400 will be the first Pulsar to receive auxiliary digital speedometer on fuel tank and a full digital instrument cluster. The speedometer on fuel tank along with seat design is quite a giveaway that the CS400 design is inspired by the Ducati Diavel in more ways than one.
Bajaj Pulsar CS400 sports a new LED headlight cluster and full LED tail lamps. It also gets disc brakes at the front and rear. Dual channel ABS will be on offer.
Bajaj Pulsar CS400 will be powered by a 373cc liquid cooled, 4 valve triple spark engine. The engine is same as that of KTM Duke / RC 390, but is expected to be tuned differently. On board the KTM twins, this engine generates 44 PS max power and 35 Nm peak torque. It is mated to a 6-speed gearbox and delivers a top speed of over 160 kmph.
Heading for a launch later this year, Pulsar CS400 could be priced in the range of INR 1.6-1.8 lakh.
